Without Prejudice – Glyphosate - Glyphosate ( Round Up type products ) Toxicity to Animals
...As a practicing Large Animal Veterinarian I have serious concerns regarding feeding animals feed that contains glyphosate.
I have listed cases below and have seen many more with a glyphosate relationship where removal of glyphosate containing feed with no other treatment has solved the problem...
Comments regarding glyphosate toxicity to animals…
...The chelating ability of glyphosate is very important Animals with glyphosate toxicity frequently show manganese and cobalt deficiency...
...The problem here for animals is that Round Up is sprayed on the crop while it is growing to kill weeds and thus glyphosate is in the feed that animals eat These crops are often sprayed 2x and many are sprayed 4x during the growing season…http://doctorted.ca/animal-production-news/without-prejudice/

The Toxins That Affected Your Great-Grandparents Could Be In Your Genes - transgenerational epigenetics
Biologist Michael Skinner has enraged the chemical community and shocked his peers with his breakthrough research
...And, startlingly, whatever disease pathway a chemical was opening in the rats’ fur-covered bodies, it did not begin or end at a mutation in the genetic code. Skinner and his team found instead that as the toxins flooded in, they altered the pattern of simple molecules called methyl groups that latch onto DNA in the fetus’ germ-line cells, which would eventually become its eggs or sperm. Like burrs stuck to a knit sweater, these methyl molecules interfered with the functioning of the DNA and rode it down through future generations, opening each new one to the same diseases. These burrs, known to be involved in development, persisted for generations. The phenomenon was so unexpected that it has given rise to a new field, with Skinner an acknowledged leader, named transgenerational epigenetics, or the study of inherited changes that can’t be explained by traditional genetics.
A study by Skinner and colleagues published last year in the journal PLOS One has upped the ante considerably. The burrs were not just haphazardly attached, Skinner found. Instead, they fastened themselves in particular arrangements. When he bathed the insides of his pregnant rats in bug spray, jet fuel and BPA, the plastics component recently banned from baby bottles, each exposure left a distinct pattern of methyl group attachments that persisted in the great-grandchildren of exposed rats.
Not only is your great-grandmother’s environment affecting your health, Skinner concluded, but the chemicals she was exposed to may have left a fingerprint that scientists can actually trace…http://www.smithsonianmag.com/innovation...yvdY3IrVAuZC.99
Farmer wants a revolution: 'How is this not genocide?'
...“When you look at the As – autism, ADHD, all the other auto-immune diseases – their take off is a 95% correlation to these chemicals being introduced. The evidence is that it affects the gut and the immune system, though it is not the sole factor, and it is a complex thing. But it is that gut that drives our whole immune system, it is our second brain.”
...Massy is among scientists who believe we have entered a new geological epoch, the life-threatening Anthropocene, where human impact has permanently altered the Earth’s geology and sustaining systems, causing ecological destruction and extinction of species. “It is the greatest crisis the planet and humanity has ever faced,” he says, sitting at his kitchen table in country New South Wales. “It makes a world war look like a little storm in a teacup. And we are in denial.”...
...The human element is the problem, the learning how to live tuned to its rhythms, to get out of its way, to listen to the land. “I say confidently that not many farmers can read the landscape. For them to change they have got to admit they have been wrong for most of their lives. The thing that is challenging about it is that you have got to be totally flexible to adjustment and really get your mind into how nature works and be able to change tactics.”...https://www.theguardian.com/environment/...is-not-genocide
Peer-reviewed studies on endocrine disruption excluded from EU glyphosate assessment
Tweedale told GMWatch, “Two were excluded by a full-text evaluation of relevance to the study question. A further five were excluded by a full-text evaluation of reliability. But the remaining 97 (93%) were excluded just by screening the title and/or abstract – in other words, before any evaluation of study quality was done. The number of published studies deemed reliable enough to be a key study, i.e. to set a safe dose or make another risk assessment decision, was precisely zero.”
EFSA failed to challenge this mass disposal of scientific data.http://www.gmwatch.org/en/news/latest-news/17869

Seneff: “New paper from Plos One on atrazine. Mouse dam exposed to atrazine; third generation offspring most affected!”
Atrazine induced epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of disease, lean phenotype and sperm epimutation pathology biomarkers
Conclusion: Interestingly, no significant pathology was detected in the F1 generation, but a significant increase in disease and pathology was observed in the F3 generation atrazine lineage male and female rats. Therefore, future assessment of exposure toxicity needs to consider transgenerational impacts. A transgenerational increase in testis disease, lean phenotype, behavior motor hyperactivity, and increase in multiple disease susceptibility was observed.
France Set to Phase Out Glyphosate Herbicides over Next 5 Years
However, Philippe said the French government had asked the farm and environment ministries to propose by the end of the year “a plan to move away from glyphosate in light of the current research and available alternatives for farmers,” signalling a readiness to accept a gradual phasing out.
A European Commission source said an EU vote due on Oct. 5-6 on the licence had been postponed for at least a month. A failure to renew the licence by the end of the year would see a ban kick in automatically on Jan. 1, 2018.http://sustainablepulse.com/2017/09/25/f...s/#.Wcmd8EuGND-
Reposting, from September 2016: Glyphosate Found in Childhood Vaccines
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's flagship herbicide Roundup and hundreds of other herbicides, has been found in vaccines. Moms Across America received preliminary screening results from Microbe Inotech Laboratories Inc. of St. Louis, Missouri, which showed:
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
The MMR II vaccine had levels up to 25 times higher than the other vaccines. Following our test, additional independent tests have confirmed these findings at or above the same levels. The tests were conducted using the ELISA method.https://www.ecowatch.com/glyphosate-vaccines-1999343362.html

Ivy League Corruption and Cruelty
In 1977, EPA received a letter from a woman who worked at Stanford Research Institute, which tested pesticides for the giant British oil and chemical company, Shell. This important letter carefully documents corrupt scientific practices favoring the approval of Shell pesticides in the United States. The letter makes Stanford Research Institute and Shell responsible for these unethical practices.
Stanford University created SRI in 1946. SRI worked like a lab for tobacco and petroleum companies. In 1970, it became independent.
Labs have been a permanent mechanism of the infrastructure of pesticides and agribusiness. They keep chemical companies and industrialized farmers in business.
This letter highlights the corruption enveloping Shell and SRI preparing pesticides for government approval. It did not matter that their pesticides would poison our food and the natural world.

U.S. EPA's Chlorpyrifos Decision Spurs Pushback
But under the Trump Administration, EPA reversed its decision. In March, just weeks after EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt took the helm of the agency, he denied the 2007 petition to ban chlorpyrifos. EPA now claims that the science related to the neurodevelopmental risks of chlorpyrifos in children is uncertain. The agency plans to complete its health assessment of the insecticide by Oct. 1, 2022.https://www.organicconsumers.org/news/us-epas-chlorpyrifos-decision-spurs-pushback
The great nutrient collapse - The atmosphere is literally changing the food we eat, for the worse. And almost nobody is paying attention.
What Loladze found is that scientists simply didn’t know. It was already well documented that CO2levels were rising in the atmosphere, but he was astonished at how little research had been done on how it affected the quality of the plants we eat. For the next 17 years, as he pursued his math career, Loladze scoured the scientific literature for any studies and data he could find. The results, as he collected them, all seemed to point in the same direction: The junk-food effect he had learned about in that Arizona lab also appeared to be occurring in fields and forests around the world. “Every leaf and every grass blade on earth makes more and more sugars as CO2 levels keep rising,” Loladze said. “We are witnessing the greatest injection of carbohydrates into the biosphere in human history―[an] injection that dilutes other nutrients in our food supply.”http://www.politico.com/agenda/story/2017/09/13/food-nutrients-carbon-dioxide-000511
Seneff: “Dr. Mercola interviews Gerry Koenig on GGT and iron overload. GGT is an enzyme that breaks down glutathione, and it is induced by glyphosate. Furthermore, it is a strong predictor of many diseases, including heart disease, renal disease, diabetes and cancer. The way I see it, we face simultaneous iron overload and iron deficiency when we're chronically exposed to glyphosate, because glyphosate disrupts the body's natural mechanisms to transport and deliver iron safely.”

USDA Enforcement Failures Lead to Fake Organic Imports
The inspector general’s report adds that the confusion at the ports is so deep that some “organic” shipments — legitimate or not — are fumigated after arrival with pesticides prohibited under USDA organic rules.
The investigators visited seven U.S. ports and discovered, through documents and interviews, that if an organic shipment shows evidence of a pest or disease and “the shipment’s owner elects to treat the organic agricultural products, they are treated using the same methods and substances used for conventional products. There are no special treatment methods for organic products. This practice results in the exposure of organic agricultural products to” prohibited substances.https://www.cornucopia.org/2017/09/usda-...ign=ImportsMORE

Why We Can't Lose Hope: Dr. David Suzuki Speaks Out
David Suzuki: Hope is all I have. And it’s not a Pollyannaish, “oh don’t worry, good things will happen, or they’ve always happened,” or anything like that. I believe that we’re so ignorant we can’t even say “it’s too late.” A lot of my colleagues are saying it’s too late; we’ve passed too many critical tipping points to go back, and all of the signs on the curves are very, very dire.
I use, as an example to support my hope, the most prized species of salmon in the world called Sockeye salmon with the bright red, oily flesh that we love to eat. The largest run of Sockeye salmon in the world is in the Fraser River in British Columbia, where I live. We like to have a run of 20 to 30 million Sockeye in a year. That’s a strong run, even though it’s well below what it used to be before Europeans came, but 20 to 30 million is a lot of fish.
In 2009, just over one million Sockeye came to the Fraser River. I remember, distinctly, looking at my wife and saying “it’s too late, there isn’t enough biomass to get those Sockeye up to the spawning grounds. They’ve had it.” A year later, 2010, we got the biggest run of Sockeye in a hundred years. Nobody knows what the Hell happened. Nature shocked us, and we still have a federal committee trying to find out what the Hell is going on with the Fraser River Sockeye. Nature showed us that, if we can pull back and give her a chance, she will surprise us in many ways.
I believe that that’s the challenge: to give Nature the chance, not impose human technology, and try to manage our way into the future. Give Nature — which has had 3.8 billion years to evolve — give Nature a chance, and my hope is that she will be far more generous than we deserve.https://news.mongabay.com/2017/09/why-we-cant-lose-hope-dr-david-suzuki-speaks-out/

Retroviruses: Poorly Understood Agents of Change - Investigating the alarming rise of chronic inflammatory diseases By Judy A. Mikovits, PhD
Xenograft approaches commonly used since the 1950s in studies of human cancer, autoimmune, and neuroimmune disease promote the evolution of novel retroviruses with pathogenic properties. We now appreciate that it is the use of xenograft technologies in the development of vaccines and biological drugs and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) that have accelerated the spread of animal retroviruses into humans, a process known as zoonosis, whereby an animal retrovirus jumps species, learning to evade immune mechanisms of humans and thereby causing disease.https://worldmercuryproject.org/news/retroviruses-poorly-understood-agents-of-change/
From “Mothers Across the World”
Council is asked to go all out to take glyphosate based herbicides off all streets and parks.
In a presentation to Auckland’s Environment and Community Committee this week, the authors of the widely supported scientific report ‘Public Health Concern: Why did the EPA Ignore the World Authority on Cancer?’ asked the Council to reconsider its current approach of relying on EPA advice on glyphosate to protect public health.
Steffan Browning MP and principal author Jodie Bruning told the committee that EPA’s advice to Council that they should have “no worries – business as usual everybody – glyphosate is unlikely to cause cancer” was not supported by the academic and scientific community as revealed in their recently published report.
The report criticizes the EPA’s actions in dismissing the findings of its own authority on cancer, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), whose 17 international experts determined in 2015 that glyphosate and its formulations was a probable human carcinogen (and a known animal carcinogen). Instead they relied on a cancer review carried out by a single NZ toxicologist who concluded that glyphosate was unlikely to cause cancer.
“Even the Ministry of Health didn’t agree with the EPA approach” Steffan Browning told the Weed Management Advisory. “Which raises the issue of what authority New Zealand Territorial Local Authorities, including Auckland Council, should rely on to ensure the safety of their communities from known toxins”.
“Clearly the IARC has the expertise, and with the absence of monitoring of levels of human exposure to glyphosate based herbicides in New Zealand, Councils must take the precautionary lead of progressive European countries, California and Christchurch City, and remove herbicides like Roundup from areas open to the public.”
Jodie Bruning agreed and said, simply, it is the duty of Auckland Council to protect public health, and removing public exposure to glyphosate is an essential action to protect public health.http://community.scoop.co.nz/2017/09/council-is-asked-to-take-glyphosate-based-herbicides-off/
Coming Soon: Better Food Labels for Conscious Consumers!
Conscious consumers won’t have to wait much longer for clear guidance on how to buy food and other products that are not only certified organic, but also certified regenerative.
The Rodale Institute on Wednesday, September 13, unveiled draft standards for a new Regenerative Organic Certification, developed by Rodale and a coalition of farmers, ranchers, nonprofits, scientists, and brands.
When finalized, the certification will go “beyond organic” by establishing higher standards for soil health and land management, animal welfare and farmer and worker fairness.http://ronnie.organicconsumers.org/coming-soon-better-food-labels-conscious-consumers/
