New report shows glyphosate producers are “buying science”
“Glyphosate producers have used every trick in the book to enable regulatory authorities around the world to play down the alarming health effects of glyphosate. The fact that the agencies accepted their 'assistance' is nothing less than scandalous,” said Helmut Burtscher, one of the report’s authors.http://gmwatch.org/news/latest-news/17518http://gmwatch.org/files/Glyphosate_and_cancer_Buying_science_EN_0.pdf
Scientific panel criticizes EPA assessment of glyphosate
“Even with Monsanto’s undue influence on the makeup of this panel, there was still considerable concern about the safety of this pesticide,” said Nathan Donley, a senior scientist at the Center for Biological Diversity. “When the pesticide office doesn’t even follow its own guidelines in determining the safety of glyphosate, how can we trust its conclusions?”http://www.gmwatch.org/news/latest-news/...t-of-glyphosate

Got Antibiotics Straight from Your “100% Pure” Orange Juice? EPA Allows Them in Florida Citrus, Contributing to Bacterial Resistance Crisis
(Beyond Pesticides, March 20, 2017) Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced it is allowing residues of antibiotics in Florida orange juice, after approving an emergency exemption for the antibiotics streptomycin and oxytetracycline –allowing their use for a bacterial disease, citrus greening (Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (CLas) bacterium that causes Huanglongbing), in Florida citrus crops through December of 2019, and further exacerbating bacterial resistance. The World Health Organization has called bacterial resistance “one of the biggest threats to global health, food security, and development today.” The agency announced March 15, “EPA is issuing these tolerances without notice and opportunity for public comment as provided in FFDCA section 408(l)(6).” EPA states “time-limited tolerances are established for residues of streptomycin in or on fruit, citrus, group 10-10, at 2 ppm, and the dried pulp of these commodities at 6 ppm.” For oxytetracycline, EPA is allowing residues ” in or on all commodities of fruit, citrus, group 10-10, at 0.4 ppm.” [See below; organic standards do not allow antibiotic use.]http://beyondpesticides.org/dailynewsblo...istance-crisis/
Emails Reveal Monsanto's Tactics To Defend Glyphosate Against Cancer Fears
New details of the company's counterattack came to light this week. Internal company emails, released as part of a lawsuit against the company, show how Monsanto recruited outside scientists to co-author reports defending the safety of glyphosate, sold under the brand name Roundup. Monsanto executive William Heydens proposed that the company "ghost-write" one paper. In an email, Heydens wrote that "we would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing and they would just edit & sign their names so to speak." Heydens wrote that this is how Monsanto had "handled" an earlier paper on glyphosate's safety.http://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2017...ontent=20170316
REP. LIEU STATEMENT ON NEW GLYPHOSATE SAFETY CONCERNShttps://lieu.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/rep-lieu-statement-new-glyphosate-safety-concerns
City Creates Commission to Consider Curbing Herbicide Usehttp://www.sanclementetimes.com/city-creates-commission-consider-curbing-herbicide-use/
A really good article by Dr. Christian Bogner that shows you Glyphosate’s connection to Autism. Seneff’s and Samsel’s 6th Paper, Glyphosate 6, Glyphosate in Vaccines is still going through the peer review process. If you are following, you can surely understand that there are big powers trying to keep this Paper from being published.
Seneff: “Dr. Christian Bogner is making huge headway in understanding autism and its connection to vaccines and glyphosate! His work is brilliant!”
...As you will find out soon, there is an unreported chemical in vaccines that was found that prevents the microglia from flipping out of the inflammatory state. This chemical is called glyphosate [more below].
This is the reason glyphosate is now able to enter the central nervous system. Glyphosate is small enough to pass through the blood brain barrier. In order to cross the blood-brain barrier, only molecules less than 800-1000 amu (atomic mass unit) in molecular weight can get through. The molecular weight of glyphosate is about 169 amu.
All vaccines tested had glyphosate in them ! You can see how a diet rich in glyphosate will put you at risk. According to CDC senior research scientist and whistleblower Dr. William Thompson , there was data omitted from African American children receiving the MMR vaccine. And in fact, there is an apparent link to autism.
Why would it affect African American children more so? One plausible explanation is that (according to the National Center for Children in Poverty) 33% of black children (3.6 million) live in poverty. In the 10 most populated states, rates of child poverty among black children range from 29% in California and Florida to 47% in Ohio . Poverty means more processed (cheaper) food choices, which means more GMO derived foods, which means more glyphosate.
It is important to note that because glyphosate is never used alone in industry, the detection of glyphosate may be an indicator of the presence of many other co-formulants in glyphosate-based herbicides which have recently been shown by French scientist Seralini’s team to be endocrine disruptors and up to 1000 times more toxic than glyphosate alone .http://drbogner.com/vaccine-mechanisms-in-autism/

“Jess, you and I have argued many times on CARC. You often argued about topics outside of your knowledge, which is unethical,” she wrote. “Your trivial MS degree from 1971 Nebraska is far outdated, thus CARC science is 10 years behind the literature in mechanisms.

For once do the right thing and don’t make decisions based on how it affects your bonus.”

Wounding Nature — and Ourselves
Pesticides bring us to the agrichemical industry, one of the key linchpins of many of our health and environmental woes. The pesticides industry has captured the EPA and the government. Colin Todhunter, a British researcher, says this industry “wallows like an overblown hog in a cesspool of corruption.” He accuses pesticide merchants for causing more death and disease than tobacco companies. The agrichemical industry, he says, “hides behind corporate public relations, media misrepresentations and the subversion of responsible-sounding agencies which masquerade as public institutions.”http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/wounding-nature-and-ourselves_us_58cee7cfe4b0537abd957224

Don’t Plant Those “Bee-Friendly” Wildflowers Cheerios Is Giving Away
No plant is inherently ‘bad’, but many species can and have caused a great deal of damage when they are introduced into locations outside of their native range. Invasive species can out-compete the natives they encounter, they can take up all the space and use up all the resources, they can spread disease, and cause other physical changes to their new homes, all of which can have detrimental effects on native species, and on humans. It doesn’t happen with every plant and in every location, and scientists (like me!) are working now to figure out why that is, how to predict what will cause a problem, how to manage or prevent invasions.http://lifehacker.com/don-t-plant-those-bee-friendly-wildflowers-cheerios-i-1793370883

In vacating the EPA approval, the court said that “given the precariousness of bee populations, leaving the EPA’s registration of sulfoxaflor in place risks more potential environmental harm than vacating it.”
The EPA must obtain further data regarding the effects of sulfoxaflor on bees as required by EPA regulations before it grants approval, the court said.http://www.beeculture.com/catch-buzz-u-s...a2a69-331980705

Shockingly Higher Rates of Autism and Developmental Delays in Asia
As in the US, Monsanto has cleverly inserted chemical company executives into government positions to influence policy.
He added that the government has admitted that “developmental delays and autism rates are out of control.”
Regardless of the source of the toxic exposure to children which contributes to developmental delays, whether it be imported food from the USA or local produce sprayed with chemicals, the originating source of their method of farming comes from American chemical companies who convinced farmers around the world to declare war on bugs and weeds with toxic chemicals, regardless of the impact on consumers. The result is that our children, the most vulnerable in our society, are the collateral damage in this global power play.http://www.momsacrossamerica.com/shockingly_higher_rates_of_autism_and_developmental_delays_in_asia

Sperm-Mediated Inheritance of Acquired Characters
Heredity does not just depend on DNA in chromosomes or organelles, loose sequences of RNA and DNA can be independently inherited, and readily taken up by sperm cells to transfer the father’s acquired characters to the fertilized egg; this underscores the trans-generational hazards of new toxins and nucleic acids introduced into our food chain via genetically modified organisms Dr. Mae-Wan Hohttp://www.i-sis.org.uk/Sperm_Mediated_Inheritance_of_Acquired_Character.php

Common Weedkiller Used in Modern Agriculture Could be Main Factor in Gluten Intolerance
In her most recent research published in a peer-reviewed journal along with Anthony Samsel, she looks at the role of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, which is the most popular herbicide used worldwide, and its toxic effect in destroying our digestive system. Here is another piece of the problem when looking at gluten sensitivities. In a recent interview she was asked about glyphosate’s role in Celiac disease and gluten sensitivities, and this was her reply:
Gluten sensitivity by itself doesn’t necessarily have the transglutaminase immunogenicity of Celiac. It shares the same features with Celiac disease, but it’s not as extreme. But these things also have a host of other pathologies that are associated with this particular condition of gluten sensitivity, which is what’s so fascinating to me. All of these risk factors that co-occur with Celiac disease could be explained through other ways that glyphosate disrupts physiology. That’s the most fascinating thing to me, is that you can explain all of these other things, maybe not directly through the effect of gluten but through the effect of glyphosate on the body.
People who have Celiac disease have increased risk for other things; for example, non-hodgkins lymphoma, and they die earlier because of these other risks. They also have fertility problems, they are more likely to produce children with birth defects, and are more likely to have depression and serotonin problems. All of these things that are connected to Celiac disease, but also exist independently from Celiac disease, are also caused, in our opinion, by glyphosate. (Source)

Here is the Conclusion of the study:
This paper presents an exhaustive review of the toxic effects of the herbicide, glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup®, in humans, and demonstrates how glyphosate’s adverse effects on the gut microbiota, in conjunction with its established ability to inhibit the activity of cytochrome P450 enzymes, and its likely impairment of sulfate transport, can remarkably explain a great number of the diseases and conditions that are prevalent in the modern industrialized world. Its effects are insidious, because the long-term effects are often not immediately apparent. The pathologies to which glyphosate could plausibly contribute, through its known biosemiotic effects, include inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, depression, ADHD, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, multiple sclerosis, cancer, cachexia, infertility, and developmental malformations. Glyphosate works synergistically with other factors, such as insufficient sun exposure, dietary deficiencies in critical nutrients such as sulfur and zinc, and synergistic exposure to other xenobiotics whose detoxification is impaired by glyphosate.
Given the known toxic effects of glyphosate reviewed here and the plausibility that they are negatively impacting health worldwide, it is imperative for more independent research to take place to validate the ideas presented here, and to take immediate action, if they are verified, to drastically curtail the use of glyphosate in agriculture. Glyphosate is likely to be pervasive in our food supply, and, contrary to being essentially nontoxic, it may in fact be the most biologically disruptive chemical in our environment.https://healthimpactnews.com/2014/common...en-intolerance/
Seneff: “I don't know why this is still a "mystery disease." The Sri Lankans figured it out a few years back and there are several articles by Jayasumana et al. pointing to glyphosate toxicity working synergistically with nitrates in the water and arsenic.

Heat forms potentially harmful substance in high-fructose corn syrup
In the new study, Blaise LeBlanc and Gillian Eggleston and colleagues note HFCS's ubiquitous usage as a sweetener in beverages and processed foods. Some commercial beekeepers also feed it to bees to increase reproduction and honey production. When exposed to warm temperatures, HFCS can form HMF and kill honeybees. Some researchers believe that HMF may be a factor in Colony Collapse Disorder, a mysterious disease that has killed at least one-third of the honeybee population in the United States.https://phys.org/news/2009-08-potentially-substance-high-fructose-corn-syrup.html#jCp
