Open Letter to the People of China

April 2015

We understand that China already is the largest producer and exporter of glyphosate in the world, including supplies exported to Monsanto for use in the manufacture of Roundup formulations worldwide. Accordingly, we ask that your Government accepts that it shoulders, together with Monsanto, some responsibility for the devastating harm to public health in those countries importing glyphosate/Roundup from China. We are also concerned that there may be massive claims for compensation in the near future.

China is also the largest importer of "Roundup Ready" (RR) soybeans and maize, thus contributing to the ongoing production of these varieties in the USA, Argentina and Brazil. It will be no easy thing to close down factories and to ban the use of the chemical in town and country; and if imports of RR soy and maize are stopped, they will have to be replaced with other products.

WHO: Ingredient in Monsanto Roundup 'probably carcinogenic' to humans

Glyphosate, found in world's most widely used herbicide, classified as probable carcinogen by cancer research experts


Aljazeera America
by Renee Lewis

March 21, 2015


The most widely used herbicide in the world, glyphosate, the active ingredient in the Monsanto product Roundup, was classified as "probably carcinogenic to humans,” in a report released Friday by cancer researchers affiliated with the World Health Organization.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced its assessment of glyphosate after convening a meeting this month of 17 cancer experts from 11 countries. They looked at the available scientific evidence on five different pesticides, including glyphosate, to determine whether to classify them as carcinogens. Carcinogens are substances that can lead to cancer under certain levels of exposure.

Glyphosate caused DNA and chromosomal damage in mammals, and in human and animal cells studied in laboratories, the report said. Studies of workers who had been exposed to the chemical in the U.S. Canada, and Sweden found “increased risks for non-Hodgkin lymphoma that persisted after adjustment for other pesticides,” the report said.

Glyphosate is usually used on crops, including corn and soybeans, that are genetically modified to survive it. The herbicide has been detected in food water, and in the air after it has been sprayed, according to the IARC report. “Its use has increased sharply with the development of genetically modified glyphosate-resistant crop varieties,” the report said.

Monsanto, the agrochemical giant, objected to the findings.

"We don't know how IARC could reach a conclusion that is such a dramatic departure from the conclusion reached by all regulatory agencies around the globe," Philip Miller, Monsanto's vice-president of global regulatory affairs, said in a statement.

WHO's based its classification of glyphosate on evidence from studies of exposure, mostly agricultural, in the United States, Canada, and Sweden that were published since 2001.

The U.S. government has said the herbicide is considered safe, and the Environmental Protection Agency approved a Monsanto request to increase legal tolerance levels for glyphosate in 2013.

Glyphosate was originally used as a descaling agent to clean out mineral deposits from pipes because of its ability to avidly bind to heavy metals. The chemical bonds to arsenic, cadmium and other heavy metals found in groundwater.

Scientists and farmers elsewhere have raised other concerns over glyphosate and tried to ban its use.

Channa Jayasumana, with Rajarata University of Sri Lanka, published a study in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health in 2014 on a possible link between glyphosate and chronic kidney disease in farmworkers. His research found that excessive heat and dehydration may weaken the workers' bodies, making them more susceptible to pesticides and heavy metals, which can lead to kidney disease.

Based on that research, the Sri Lankan government moved to ban glyphosate in spring of 2014. But Monsanto raised objections to the report's findings, and the ban was lifted. The chemical was, and continues to be, widely used on farms in the country.

The research also suggested a link between glyphosate and a mysterious kidney disease that has killed thousands of farmworkers in Central America. At least 20,000 farm workers have died of chronic kidney disease in Nicaragua in the last two decades, The Guardian reported in February. Researchers who have studied the disease in Central America say that it mainly affects agricultural laborers working under conditions of excessive heat and dehydration, but other factors, including pesticides, may play a role.

"I am actually very scared. I feel that the future is dammed unless we make dramatic changes immediately and it may be even too late so I'm doing everything I can to get the message out."

"...he explained how glyphosate disrupts the microbes in the soil and disrupts the microbes in the gut in a similar way and so when the gut microbes get out of wack and you have a over growth of pathogens then you get a lot of issues with leaky gut, inflammatory gut, celiac's disease, all these problems that are epidemic today, can be caused by glyphosate and of course I knew that those problems were linked to autism..."

This weeks podcast episode we speak with Dr. Stephanie Seneff who fills us in on the vaccine program, Genetically modified foods and Glyphosate (round-up) and their effects on our bodies.

Monsanto's Department of How to Brainwash a Nation.

They are advertising in magazines, most recently, Oprah, Better Homes and Gardens and just today, on Facebook, NASCAR races and of course, television via Lowes and Home Depot commercials. Write to these companies and tell them you won't shop at their stores until they stop advertising for chemical companies. I wrote Country Max last year. This year, they have organic products out on the end isles, where last year they had Round Up. Thank you Country Max.

Top Pharma-Brand Of Children’s Vitamins Contains Aspartame, GMOs, & Other Hazardous Chemicals

August 20, 2014

...let’s look a little closer at some of these presumably healthy ingredients….

In summary, Bayer’s Flintstone’s vitamin brand is far from a natural product, and the consumer should be aware of the unintended, adverse health effects that may occur as a result of using it.

Monsanto/Roundup Class Action Lawsuit

Monsanto claims that Roundup targets enzymes supposedly found only in plants -- not in people -- but this is blatantly false.

The truth is, Roundup targets enzymes found in both plants AND people -- specifically in our gut bacteria -- which are vulnerable to potent pesticides like Roundup.

Monsanto’s claim -- that Roundup targets enzymes "not found in people" -- is objectively false and inherently misleading.

PLEASE Read the lawsuit @ www.monsantoclassaction.org

Rounding Us Up and Exposing Us All to Cancer

31 March 2015

By Brian Moench

The shocking results prove that glyphosate does in fact bioaccumulate. Certainly, the last thing a newborn should be ingesting is Roundup from its mother's milk.

Pesticides like Roundup are "biocides" - biologic poisons. They destroy living cells.

Cancer is far from the only concern about Roundup. The medical and toxicological literature examining the health consequences of pesticides reads like a horror show.

In fact, in 2013, well after much of the alarming research on glyphosate had already surfaced, the EPA actually increased the "acceptable" levels of glyphosate contamination of numerous foods, anywhere from twice for soybeans to 25 times higher for carrots.

Goodall on GMO’s: “I Truly Believe We’re Poisoning Ourselves”

By Andrea Smardon • Apr 24, 2015

“We’re poisoning the land, we’re poisoning animals, and I truly believe we’re poisoning ourselves,” Goodall said. She pointed to superbugs that have become resistant to pesticides, weeds resistant to herbicides, and isolated animal studies in Europe and Australia where she said rats and pigs suffered from a variety of health issues when consuming genetically engineered crops.

In and of itself, a noble cause on most any day, except that their chosen route to this plan is founded on a campaign utilizing fear-based marketing that perpetuates misinformation and berates the work of most farmers and ranchers in this country. And for the life of their marketing teams, they cannot admit to understanding why this has angered, frustrated, and antagonized so many farmers and ranchers. To state it briefly, Chipotle Mexican Grill is taking advantage of current food trends and buzzwords to build a campaign that fills their pocketbooks.

Monsanto and Others Caught Paying Internet ‘Trolls’ to Attack Activists

...paid internet trolling is becoming a new career path.

There’s the real difference. And, besides common sense dictating that corporations would surely hire a fleet of internet warriors to protect their brand reputation in the age of open source online communication, we now know for sure that companies like Monsanto have in fact dedicated ‘entire departments’ to trolling scientists and ‘discrediting’ those who oppose their GMO creations.

...Dr. William “Bill” Moar raved that Monsanto had established:


“An entire department” (waving his arm for emphasis) dedicated to “debunking” science which disagreed with theirs.”
