Monsanto Is Scrambling To Bury This Breaking Story – Don’t Let This Go Unshared!

PLEASE SHARE this with all your friends! We mustn’t keep quiet about the evils about Monsanto!

Share this shocking new report with everyone you know….

A FDA-registered food safety laboratory tested iconic American food for residues of the weed killer glyphosate (aka Monsanto’s Roundup) and found ALARMING amounts.

Just to give you an idea of how outrageous these amounts are, independent research shows that probable harm to human health begins at really low levels of exposure – at only 0.1 ppb of glyphosate. Many foods were found to have over 1,000 times this amount! Well above what regulators throughout the world consider “safe”.

Here is why we all should be concerned about eating glyphosate:

  • Independent research links glyphosate to cancer and it has been deemed a probable human carcinogen by the World Health Organization’s team of international cancer experts. The childhood cancer rate is steadily rising and experts say that they don’t know why. Why are they not taking a closer look at these facts?
  • Research also indicates that glyphosate is an endocrine disruptor, which disrupts hormones and leads to reproductive problems, early onset puberty, obesity, diabetes, and some cancers. When it comes to endocrine disruptors, very small exposures are the most damaging, so “the dose makes the poison” mantra does not apply!
  • Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum antibiotic killing the good bacteria in your gut. Poor gut health is linked to inflammation and a whole host of diseases. As GMOs laced with glyphosate are commonly fed to farm animals, this could very well be contributing to antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
  • It binds with vital nutrients in the soil (like iron, calcium, manganese, zinc) and prevents plants for taking them up. Glyphosate is thereby making food less nutritious!

Why is this weed killer in these foods? Even non-GMO and organic food! 

This chemical has gone so mainstream that glyphosate has infiltrated every facet of our environment – our water, air, soil.

  • Many GMOs were invented to be resistant to glyphosate – and since GMOs have been introduced the use of glyphosate has gone through the roof! It is now the world’s most widely used herbicide.
  • Glyphosate is not just used on GMOs. Conventional (non-organic farmers) use Roundup as a drying agent on crops, such as oats and wheat. It can’t be simply washed off, as it is taken up into the plant itself.
  • As the active ingredient in popular “Roundup” herbicide, millions of people are using this stuff around their homes, and it’s widely used at parks and other public spaces.

So, that is why it’s not just GMO-filled junk food that is laced with glyphosate. It’s contaminating organic and non-GMO foods, and it’s even in our honey! The FDA quietly found it in almost every single sample of honey that they tested (from mass produced to organic mountain honey). The media has been essentially silent and barely anyone heard this news!

Even if you don’t personally eat the specific brands that were tested (I don’t), how many people are eating Cheerios and Ritz Crackers every day? A lot!

How many of your friends and family have their cabinets filled with these foods? These people need to know this information.

There are still thousands of other brands and whole foods that have not been tested for glyphosate residues, so we can’t be so sure that our own organic, non-GMO, and unprocessed food is safe. Americans are effectively being forced to eat this poison until something is done to stop the rampant use of this chemical. Yes, I said poison.

Monsanto doesn’t want the public to know these findings for obvious reasons. They have our regulatory agencies in their back pocket to make sure they can continue to make a hefty profit while poisoning the masses.

While there are now several manufacturers of glyphosate herbicides, Monsanto completely dominates the market and this is a best seller. They are raking in BILLIONS every year and certainly don’t want that to stop. They are clearly, without a doubt, using their prosperity to influence our government regulators. Why else would those entrusted to protect the public from harmful chemicals turn a blind eye to this?

Our public agencies are allowing corporations to poison Americans for profit.

In 2013, the EPA massively increased the industry standard of what is considered a “safe” level of glyphosate on our food, in order to make enormous amounts seem A-OK. Instead of properly regulating, they effectively raised the “safe” level so that no one can blame the industry for poisoning us with unlawful amounts of chemicals. This is corruption at its finest. The EPA has a long and sordid history of doing whatever Monsanto wants and you have to ask yourself why this continues to happen and how we can make it stop.

The EPA continues to pander to Monsanto, as they keep postponing and dragging their feet to evaluate glyphosate’s link to cancer in humans. The industry is fighting tooth and nail to make sure that the EPA “evaluation” will be in their favor and is trying to control who will be on the panel. Why won’t the EPA do their job to make sure that the world’s most widely used herbicide isn’t causing us all to get cancer? Don’t you think this should be a top priority? It’s time for the EPA to put the public health above the corrupt desires of corporations.

When it comes to the FDA, they are not protecting the American public from glyphosate either. After announcing in February that they would FINALLY begin testing foods for glyphosate residues, they just decided to suspend their testing this week. Could it be that Monsanto didn’t like the results they started getting – especially since the FDA found glyphosate in foods that should be especially safe like BABY FOOD? Monsanto will do whatever it takes to keep that story out of the public eye.

Doesn’t the public deserve to know this information? It should be shouted from the rooftops!

It is shameful that the American media has thus far failed to cover this breaking news, but WE HAVE THE POWER to make this information go viral. If you really want to stop the corruption perpetuated by Monsanto and the large chemical companies – this is how we shut them down!

CALL TO ACTION: Share this post with everyone you know. Tweet, share, and email this information to major media outlets and ask them to cover this story. 

Remember the best way to avoid glyphosate is by choosing certified organic foods because it is prohibited on organic crops. Although contamination is a real threat, the levels on organic foods are minimal compared to what’s been found on conventional foods. It’s been shown that people who eat organic foods have less glyphosate and other synthetic pesticides in their system.

The people of this country must be informed and this should be our top priority. Go, Food Babe Army, Go!

First-ever Long-Term Study Reveals Monsanto’s Roundup Causes Severe Liver Damage

A dose of glyphosate from the Roundup administered to the rats was thousands of times below what is permitted by regulators worldwide. But this still caused severe damage to the rats’ livers; thus, is scientifically guaranteed will do the same to humans.

RoundUp

Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop drying agent used to kill weeds. Glyphosate was discovered by Monsanto chemist John E. Franz in 1970. By 1974, Monsanto had introduced it into the market under the trade name Roundup.

Since Roundup became available, there have been a series of controversies.  There are numerous studies suggesting that the amount of glyphosate detected in people’s bodies has gone up exponentially. It has been found in human blood, urine, body tissue, and almost everywhere else in the body.

RoundUp

In 2014, a study sponsored by Moms Across America (MAA) found the presence of glyphosate in breast milk of American mothers. High levels of the deadly compound were found in 3 out of 10 samples.

Then in 2016, another study carried out by MAA showed that five childhood vaccines contain the deadly herbicide, glyphosate. The following five vaccines were said to contain the deadly glyphosate compound:

MMR II (Merk) vaccine had 2.671 parts per billion (ppb) of glyphosate.

DTap Adacel (Sanofi Pasteur) vaccine had 0.123 ppb of glyphosate.

Influenza Fluvirin (Novaris) 0.331 ppb of glyphosate.

HepB Energix-B (Glaxo Smith Kline) 0.325 ppb of glyphosate.

Pneumonoccal Vax Polyvalent Pneumovax 23 (Merk) had 0.107 ppb of glyphosate.

RoundUp

Apart from the vaccines, cow milk, canola oil, Ensure Drinks and soda were all found to contain the deadly compound. In early 2016, the United States’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was forced by public pressure to agree to the testing for the presence of glyphosate in food.

In fact, many foods are now made with Roundup-ready soy, corn, and canola. And it is not only humans who consume these foods; some are fed to factory farmed animals for meat and dairy products, for further consumption by people.

In the United States, for example, statistics show that farmland in the country has been drenched with more than 2.6 billion pounds of glyphosate, since 1992. Many grain and seed crops receive a dose of Roundup just before harvest, in a process known as desiccation. This process forces the grains and crops to dry quickly, rather than waiting for their natural period to dry.

RoundUp

With studies providing overwhelming evidence that Roundup has found its way into the human body, independent researchers have devoted their time into trying to fully understand the effects of the deadly compound on the human body. The World Health Organization has already labeled glyphosate among the “probable carcinogen” compounds.

In the latest on the compound, researchers from King’s College London have announced they have conducted an unprecedented, long-term study showing a link between Roundup and severe liver damage in test rats. Since the compound causes severe liver damage in rats, it also causes similar severe damage in humans. This is because health researchers worldwide accept toxicity studies in rats as indicators of human health risks. The study has been accepted in the peer-reviewed journal Nature.

According to the researchers, they used a cutting-edge technology to demonstrate that “extremely low doses” of the Roundup administered to rats through their drinking water had caused “non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)” over a two-year period. Health experts say NAFLD can lead to more serious liver disease such as cirrhosis, and increases the risk of other illnesses including diabetes, heart attacks and strokes.

RoundUp

“The study is unique in that it is the first to show a causative link between consumption of Roundup at a real-world environmental dose and a serious disease condition,” the authors wrote in the study.

In the study, the researchers highlighted that glyphosate was administered in “ultra-low doses” – well below the exposure level permitted for humans. In fact, the dose of glyphosate from the Roundup administered to the rats was thousands of times below what is permitted by regulators worldwide. But this still caused damage to the rats’ livers.

RoundUp

The authors said: “Regulators worldwide accept toxicity studies in rats as indicators of human health risks. Therefore, the results of this latest study may have serious consequences for human health, and thus warrant careful consideration by regulatory agencies and further investigation by toxicologists.”

The authors urged regulators worldwide to reconsider the current safety limits for glyphosate because evidence from their study is glaring.

RoundUp

Robin Mesnage, a research associate at King’s College London, Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics, who took part in the study, told Al Jazeera in an interview how highly advanced methods helped analyze the effects of the herbicide on rats’ health.

“Metabolomics and proteomics allows detection of hundreds or even thousands of molecules at the same time, which is much greater than other techniques. So we could clearly see what is happening in the organs,” Mesnage said.

Immediately after the study was made public, Monsanto, as usual, issued a statement denouncing the study, accusing the researchers of using flawed data. Of course, Monsanto would never admit to its producing dangerous products to the public, especially on a global scale.

RoundUp

Meanwhile, a press officer for the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA),Cathy Milbourn told Al Jazeera that the study by the King’s College London team is currently “under review” by the government agency to okay scientific research – now a normal process under the new Trump administration. Cathy also said the agency is still investigating whether glyphosate-based herbicides are safe for human exposure.

Many observers have criticized regulators in the United States for having a soft-spot for Monsanto. There is much evidence proving that genetically engineered crops and other products of Monsanto cause harm to the public, but regulators have blatantly refused to act, putting the health of people around the world in danger in the name of profits.
