Glyphosate at 15:00

Seneff: “I gave this presentation last week in Toronto on vaccines and glyphosate. It reflects my latest research on the topic, and I mention some of the recent papers and books that strengthen the case against both vaccines and glyphosate.”

“The greatest doctors of the world know the medical theory of immunization and contagious diseases is as false as false can be. But they dare not speak out; and as long as the practice makes money for those who sponsor it and people can be persuaded to believe in it, there will be no change.” Professor Hilton Hotema, 1970

"I haven't used RoundUp since 1977," said Phil Coturri, the Sonoma vineyard manager who was recognized by the Golden Gate Salmon Association earlier this year for his environmentally sound viticulture. "You can't constantly use a product and think that it's not going to have an effect. Glyphosate is something that's made to kill."

Dr. Thierry Vrain, Former Pro-GMO Scientist, Speaks Up Against Glyphosate

Dr. Thierry Vrain, former genetic engineer and soil biologist with Agriculture Canada, spoke with us today about his concerns with genetically engineered crops (GMOs) and more importantly, the use of Glyphosate (RoundUp). Dr. Vrain’s background in the field of genetic engineering (for 30 years), makes him an expert on this gene technology. He explained how a cell is genetically engineered and what happens after this random insertion process through a gene gun and how it can have unknown effects.

Since leaving Agriculture Canada 12 years ago, he has learned much more about the process of genetic engineering and the BT process (insect resistant) and the HT (herbicide resistant) crops that make up about 500 million acres. His primary concern at this time is the widespread use of Glyphosate which is a powerful herbicide, mineral chelator and a patented antibiotic. Dr. Vrain stated when speaking about Glyphosate:

“It’s almost as if the entire population of North American is on a low-grade antibiotic diet day in day out from birth, everyday, so this is the reality.”

Samsel: “Glyphosate is found in all animals eating contaminated foods. This was already established by Samsel and published by Samsel and Seneff in the science literature years ago. Glyphosate causes cancer in all animals including humans. The animals are not getting Glyphosate through their skin or paws unless they are walking through freshly sprayed areas or being sprayed and then it is very minimal. Glyphosate is mainly ingested and 30-35% of each and every dose of Glyphosate from every feeding accumulates and compounds with circulation in the bloodstream reaching a plateau. 70% is eliminated in the urine and feces. 1 to 1-1/2% becomes part of the protein tissues of the animals, with all tissues and there no are exceptions.”

Opponents in glyphosate toxicity issue each claim they have "sound science"

Update Feb. 9, 2018: We asked Dr. Anthony Samsel, a totally independent research scientist, for a brief comment on the hearing and its apparent purpose of discrediting the IARC conclusion. Dr. Samsel has conducted years of glyphosate physiology research in his own lab; plus having exclusive access to all of the commissioned research study results which Monsanto provided the U.S. government to achieve glyphosate registration. Here's Dr. Samsel's response, along with links he provided to further evidence:

“…

This statement to the Congressional SST committee is blatantly false.

I have posted links to ResearchGate for the Haemangio-endothelioma data from that study. This is a nice companion to the Lymphoma data I posted after my appearance and testimony at the California OEHHA hearing against Monsanto in June of 2017. I identified Lymphoma tumors in 14 tissues. The lymphoma tumor type was found only in female rats and not the control animals of the Monsanto rat study of 1981.

Remember that the EPA toxicologist William Dykstra found kidney tumors in that same mouse study problematic and raised the issue definitively: "Review of the mouse oncogenicity study indicates that glyphosate is oncogenic, producing renal tubule adenomas, a rare tumor, in a dose-related manner.” These incidences of kidney tumors in mice exposed to glyphosate were significant to raise flags and they do have the potential to be harmful to other organs and tissues.

Well, I now raise the issue of Haemangio- tumors. In fact 14 of them.

The EPA, IARC, European agency, Tarone, Portier and others all missed the significance of these data. If the kidney cancer data was significant to raise warning flags and rightly classify it a probable carcinogen, then certainly these statistically significant tumors will, too.

These data show that glyphosate and not Roundup cause these cancers. In my humble opinion, these tumors may have more specifically been caused by the N-nitrosamines of glyphosate, but glyphosate is certainly at the root of progression.”

Glyphosate pathways to modern diseases VI: Prions, amyloidoses and autoimmune neurological diseases - Samsel and Seneff - 2017

Abstract: Usage of the herbicide glyphosate on core crops in the USA has increased exponentially over the past two decades, in step with the exponential increase in autoimmune diseases including autism, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, type 1 diabetes, coeliac disease, neuromyelitis optica and many others. In this paper we explain how glyphosate, acting as a non-coding amino acid analogue of glycine, could erroneously be integrated with or incorporated into protein synthesis in place of glycine, producing a defective product that resists proteolysis. Whether produced by a microbe or present in a food source, such a peptide could lead to autoimmune disease through molecular mimicry. We discuss similarities in other naturally produced disease-causing amino acid analogues, such as the herbicide glufosinate and the insecticide L-canavanine, and provide multiple examples of glycine-containing short peptides linked to autoimmune disease, particularly with respect to multiple sclerosis. Most disturbing is the presence of glyphosate in many popular vaccines including the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine, which we have verified here for the first time. Contamination may come through bovine protein, bovine calf serum, bovine casein, egg protein and/or gelatin. Gelatin sourced from the skin and bones of pigs and cattle given glyphosate-contaminated feed contains the herbicide. Collagen, the principal component of gelatin, contains very high levels of glycine, as do the digestive enzymes: pepsin, trypsin and lipase. The live measles virus could produce glyphosate-containing haemagglutinin, which might induce an autoimmune attack on myelin basic protein, commonly observed in autism. Regulatory agencies urgently need to reconsider the risks associated with the indiscriminate use of glyphosate to control weeds.

Glyphosate pathways to modern diseases V: Amino acid analogue of glycine in diverse proteins - 2016 - Samsel and Seneff

Abstract: Glyphosate, a synthetic amino acid and analogue of glycine, is the most widely used biocide on the planet. Its presence in food for human consumption and animal feed is ubiquitous. Epidemiological studies have revealed a strong correlation between the increasing incidence in the United States of a large number of chronic diseases and the increased use of glyphosate herbicide on corn, soy and wheat crops. Glyphosate, acting as a glycine analogue, may be mistakenly incorporated into peptides during protein synthesis. A deep search of the research literature has revealed a number of protein classes that depend on conserved glycine residues for proper function. Glycine, the smallest amino acid, has unique properties that support flexibility and the ability to anchor to the plasma membrane or the cytoskeleton. Glyphosate substitution for conserved glycines can easily explain a link with diabetes, obesity, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary edema, adrenal insufficiency, hypothyroidism, Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s disease, prion diseases, lupus, mitochondrial disease, non- Hodgkin’s lymphoma, neural tube defects, infertility, hypertension, glaucoma, osteoporosis, fatty liver disease and kidney failure. The correlation data together with the direct biological evidence make a compelling case for glyphosate action as a glycine analogue to account for much of glyphosate’s toxicity. Glufosinate, an analogue of glutamate, likely exhibits an analogous toxicity mechanism. There is an urgent need to find an effective and economical way to grow crops without the use of glyphosate and glufosinate as herbicides.

U.S. Government Lifts Ban on Making Viruses More Deadly and Transmissible

"Gain-of-function" research, in which scientists make pathogens more powerful or easily transmissible, is aimed at preventing disease outbreaks by better understanding how they might occur. The studies allow scientists, working in a highly controlled environment, to learn how a flu virus might mutate into a superbug capable of killing millions—a sort of game of wits played to gain insight into nature's unpredictability. The ultimate goal is to proactively create vaccines, medications and other solutions to stop contagion in its tracks.

The new National Institutes of Health policy reverses a 2014 Obama administration funding ban on gain-of-function research projects specifically involving all forms of the influenza virus, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The new rules would extend beyond those viruses, "apply[ing] to any pathogen that could potentially cause a pandemic," according to the New York Times. "For example, they would apply to a request to create an Ebola virus transmissible through the air."

Possibly aware that this sounds like the prologue to a very hacky horror movie, the NIH accompanied its announcement with a list of criteria that proposals must meet before funding will be granted. According to those terms, a panel will only greenlight projects if the work promises to yield practical solutions, such as an effective antiviral treatment; the research benefits must sufficiently outweigh the risks; and researchers must prove their experiment outcomes cannot be obtained using safer methodologies. Contenders will also have to prove their researchers and facilities "have the capacity to do the work safety and securely and to respond rapidly if there are any accidents, protocol lapses, or security breaches."

Seneff: “New Open Access paper on post concussion syndrome (e.g., football brain injuries). The author singles out glyphosate and fluoride as playing a potentially pivotal role. She summarizes by claiming there are "pivotal mechanisms of altered physiology brought on by environmental toxicants that would result in a hyper-response to subsequent brain injury, in individuals with high cumulative or synergistic levels of environmental toxicant exposure and/or significant modulating factors related to brain resilience."”

Environmental Subconcussive Injury, Axonal Injury, and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy - Wendy A. Morley, Thionetics, Toronto, ON, Canada

Acknowledgments: The author wishes to express sincere thanks to Dr. Stephanie Seneff and Dr. Christine Till for their generous academic support and critical reading of the manuscript.

Conclusion...In response to the question “do individuals with high level of exposure to environmental toxins have different brains or physiology, which in turn affects how they respond to further brain insults and injury,” the author has detailed pivotal mechanisms of altered physiology brought on by environmental toxicants that would result in a hyperresponse to subsequent brain injury, in individuals with high cumulative or synergistic levels of environmental toxicant exposure and/or significant modulating factors related to brain resilience.

Diminished brain resilience, a concept lightly touched on in this paper, describes a constellation of factors that conceivably predisposes one to increased susceptibility to various brain injury and downstream neurodegeneration (Figure 2)...

European Conservation Groups Slam Government for Subsidizing Industrial Farms That Endanger Wildlife

“It’s a massive scandal but the farm lobby is so powerful it hasn’t penetrated public consciousness,” said Harriet Bradley, agriculture policy officer at Birdlife Europe. Sadly, similar action is being taken in the U.S. with major subsidies being given to Big Meat and Dairy, which has led to the near extermination of the American wild horse and countless other wildlife species. If we don’t take this seriously, we might lose more species than was even intended.

Seneff: “Newly published research article on the damaging effects of glyphosate contamination in food and other products!!”

Critical Review of the Effects of Glyphosate Exposure to the Environment and Humans through the Food Supply Chain = 2018

Abstract: ...The conflict between the two organizations of the World Health Organization triggered many doubts, and for this reason, a series of independent studies were launched to better understand what glyphosate’s danger to humans and the environment really was. The results have brought to light how massive use of the herbicide has created over time a real global contamination that has not only affected the soil, surface and groundwater as well as the atmosphere, but even food and commonly used objects, such as diapers, medical gauze, and absorbent for female intimate hygiene. How human health is compromised as a result of glyphosate exposure is a topic that is still very debatable and still unclear and unambiguous. This paper is a review of the results of the main independent recent scientific studies.

Conclusions: Despite numerous studies regarding the dangers resulting from the extensive use of glyphosate, it is not possible to attribute a clear and unambiguous definition to glyphosate, especially regarding its potentially harmful effects on humans. Resuming and analyzing each treated subject, it is concluded that the massive use of glyphosate, given its chemical-physical properties and its presence in many commercial products, even in the form of more toxic mixtures than the single molecule, should be reduced. This could be achieved by implementing resources and funding dedicated to alternative solutions to the herbicide. However, diffusion is unfortunately not yet advanced due to the huge economic interest in the market for herbicides.

It is also evident that new studies and independent research must be performed in order to clearly define the seriousness of glyphosate exposure to carcinogenicity and genotoxicity. In fact, there is a too great a discrepancy between the opinions of the various scientific institutions, mainly because of their different economic and social interests. The controversy and the debate are expected to continue. Recently, the European Union Appeals Committee, made up of representatives of all the member states, approved a further five years authorization for the use of glyphosate (December 2017). The decision was marked by debate and there was a split in the vote within the Commission (for example, Italy and France not favorable, Germany favorable).

It is certain, however, that the population and the environment must be better protected, especially through the endorsement of new rules and limitations regarding the chemical in question. It is the duty of the institutions to place the “precautionary principle” before economic interests, namely the protection of citizens and the environment from exposure to a substance whose side effects are not yet known.

Are You Eating Glyphosate? How Organic Farming Can Help

The problem is that the presence of GMOs is not the only concern when it comes to food safety. “GMO free” labeling is sometimes used to provide a distraction from other, less complementary truths about how a food product like oatmeal is produced. And that’s where glyphosate comes in.

...

Hidden Glyphosates

When used as a desiccant, glyphosate is sprayed only on non-GMO crops (because GMO crops would not be killed by it), and it is applied very close to the harvest window, affording little time for the chemical to break down before it is scooped up with the grain and processed into food.

Let’s say that crop is oats and the food product is plain oatmeal. If no artificial flavors are added, a company has the legal right to label it “natural”. Because GMO oats don’t exist, they also have the right to label that product “GMO free”. Since the FDA does not regularly test for glyphosate residue in food or require its use to appear on the product label, the story appears to end there: natural and GMO free sounds pretty good, even if it’s not certified organic.

Because the practice of using glyphosate as a desiccant is widespread, its residues are likely to wind up in certain foods. In 2016, the FDA released test results finding glyphosate residues in a number of grain products. Independent studies have made similar findings. This combination of glyphosate use on non-GMO crops and misleading labeling led to a lawsuit filed against a major cereal company last spring.



Whatever you do, don’t put all your faith in non-GMO labelling. While you may want to avoid GMOs in your food, that label only tells part of the story. If the product is a non-organic grain or bean product, the hidden part of that story is that it was likely sprayed with glyphosate a few weeks before harvest.
