Samsel - New interview...
Seneff: “Brand new Kristen Harper interview with Anthony Samsel. Get a sneak preview on his most recent research on glyphosate!”
(We don’t get to hear from Anthony Samsel much because he is behind the scenes doing a lot of research. Please listen to this interview. You’ll learn his credentials, why he started studying glyphosate, what he found, glyphosate in vaccines and his newest research on collagen and bile acids, etc. I can’t wait for the new Paper to come out with the new research on bile acids. There are so many young people getting their gallbladders removed. I knew there was a connection to glyphosate and the proof is coming. Transcript coming soon but, it so much better hearing it right from the source.)
Elizabeth Warren Just Let Loose on Trump and Monsanto - She is no fan of the ag giant’s pending mega-merger.
Enter Trump’s nemesis, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.). In a recent speech before the Open Markets Institute, Warren denounced rising levels of corporate consolidation—massive companies merging into vast market-dominating entities that invest a share of their profits in lobbying and financing campaigns, shaping the political system to their own ends.
At one point—snippet below—Warren turned her attention to one of the most consolidated sectors of the US economy: agribusiness. And she called on the Trump administration to nix Bayer-Monsanto. “If the Bayer-Monsanto merger is approved, one gigantic company would supply one-quarter of the entire world’s seeds and pesticides,” she noted. (Her math matches up pretty closely with my assessment).
Seneff: “I hope the idea of "glyphosate tested" catches on! It would be wonderful if we could routinely buy "glyphosate tested" products that were found to be glyphosate free in the tests.”
Why do we test for Glyphosate?
Glyphosate is in 80% of our food supply in the U.S., and may well be the most toxic chemical ever approved for commercial use, according to some scientists. Scientists now link glyphosate to kidney disease, antibiotic resistant bacteria, inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, depression, ADHD, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, multiple sclerosis, cancer, cachexia, infertility, and developmental malformations. It reportedly destroys the microbiome of humans and plants, which is seen by some as the root cause of many modern diseases.
So if there are no GMO varieties of wheat in the market, how is glyphosate getting into the wheat and other grains?
Dr. Don Huber, Professor Emeritus of Plant Pathology at Purdue University, explains why:
“There are two reasons that a farmer wants to [use glyphosate on non-GMO crops]. It is for late season weed control in situations where he has patches of green weeds in the field that came up late. [This is commonly done with wheat and barley.] It is a little slower to harvest when weeds are present.
The other reason involves late season snow. In the northern region such as in the Dakotas, in certain parts of Montana, and in the Prairies of Canada, there is a very short growing season. If it snows on the crop at harvest then you may lose the crop, because you can’t get back into the field to do the harvest.
In these regions, 70% of the wheat and barley are desiccated with glyphosate before harvest. [This kills the plant so that it will wilt and dry]. Farmers don’t want to take a risk of losing their entire wheat and barley crop, so they will take a cut in yield and quality by using glyphosate a few weeks before harvest, and then harvest the crop early.
Farmers don’t realize how much they are contaminating that food or feed product when they do this. They will accept the cut [in quality and quantity of the crop], because that can buy them a week advantage in harvest. It’s really more done for ease and planning. However, it is just the dumbest thing you could ever do from a health and safety standpoint.
In fact, beer brewers are having a problem with glyphosate. A few years ago, when one of my colleagues wanted to get more Abraxis test strips for testing materials for glyphosate residue, he was told that they had a 3 month backlog. He asked, what was causing this? He was told that every load of malt barley coming out of North Dakota has to be tested, because the glyphosate levels were so high that it kills the yeast in the brew mix.” (Source.)
Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff published as study titled: Glyphosate, pathways to modern diseases II: Celiac sprue and gluten intolerance in Interdiscip Toxicol. 2013; Vol. 6 (4): 159–184. They produced the following chart showing a correlation between glyphosate use on wheat and Celiac disease:

We are the stewards of our children. Protecting them and making decisions that don't lead to early disease onset is the minimum we can do. But what if you're not getting good information from your trusted sources? Maybe it’s time to change your trusted sources.
Glyphosate/GMO food, antibiotics, food sensitivities, this is a public health problem.
Zen Honeycutt: “The organic industry is the only part of the food industry that WANTS regulations. That has to say something to consumers. If you are eating food from people who aren't willing to be held accountable, that are not willing to include integrity in their practices, do you really want to eat it? What do we do if we can't trust the food to be organic though? Get To Know Your Farmer. Or raise livestock yourself. Or don't eat it. That's what it comes down to. Whatever you chose, all alternatives are infinitely rewarding. New breakthroughs in community, self-reliance, and health will come of them if you chose to #OptOUT of Big Ag.”
USDA to Withdraw Organic Livestock Rules
The Department of Agriculture plans to withdraw another Obama administration regulation impacting the livestock industry, this time choosing to pull language setting animal welfare standards in organic agriculture.
The rules – the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices – were issued in January, just days before President Donald Trump took office. But a regulatory freeze slowed their implementation, and the department just last month further delayed the effective date while challenging the legal footing for the regulations.
The Organic Trade Association has already filed suit to force implantation of the rules, and the group is now “dismayed” at USDA’s decision to withdraw. The group says withdrawal is “a groundless step” that goes against “nearly universal support” from organic producers and consumers...
Seneff: “New book out on Amazon by John Kamin. I received an early copy and I recommend this book highly to those who are worried about our food supply. Lots of useful facts about the toxins in modern food and the lack of nutritional value.”
...with liberty and sickness for all.: The toxins in our food, our environment, and our minds…
The state of our health is on a rapid decline. We are being lied to on a daily basis about the causes of disease, the toxins in our foods, and the efficacy of the medical treatments which we are being offered, for the sake of ever-increasing profits. This book gives an in-depth look at toxic food additives and GMOs, and their contribution to cancer and other diseases and disorders, as well as science-backed solutions for the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases, which are being kept from the public at large.
You can find Hayes on YouTube telling the story of how Syngenta, after hiring him to research Atrazine, harassed him and his family for ten years to try and stop him from publishing the results of his research. Another example of how chemical companies will do anything to stop this information from getting out to the public.
Pesticide Turns Male Frogs into Females - 2010
Atrazine is banned in Europe.
And since atrazine interferes with the production of the sex hormone estrogen, present in people and frogs, the findings could have implications for humans as well. "If you have problems in amphibians, you can anticipate problems in other animals," Hayes said.
What you need to know about Chlorpyrifos - The toxic pesticide now harming our children and environment
For half a century, U.S. staple foods such as corn, wheat, apples and citrus have been sprayed with chlorpyrifos, a dangerous pesticide that can damage the developing brains of children, causing reduced IQ, loss of working memory, and attention deficit disorders.
Earthjustice, among other groups, has for years pushed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to ban chlorpyrifos, as it is known to harm health, water and wildlife. The EPA was expected to make a decision by March 31, under a court order deadline. On March 29, the EPA refused to ban the pesticide…
