C.G. Dutra: “Glyphosate is NOT safe for human consumption, no herbicide is safe for human or animal consumption. All herbicides have a job to do and that job is to 'Kill Life'.”
“Read what is said in this post about the 'Shikimate Pathway'. We have that pathway in our gut bacteria and Glyphosate uses that pathway to kill organisms. This is 'full acknowledgement' of what Glyphosate does to our guts that makes us ill. This is HOW Glyphosate kills off our gut bacteria, which is our immune systems.”
C.G. Dutra: “Brain damage from antibiotic usage; Glyphosate residues in your GMO food puts an antibiotic into your body's system, which constitutes antibiotic usage.”
Antibiotics that kill gut bacteria also stop growth of new brain cells - 2016
Summary: Antibiotics strong enough to kill off gut bacteria can also stop the growth of new brain cells in the hippocampus, a section of the brain associated with memory, reports a new study in mice. Researchers also uncovered a clue to why -- a type of white blood cell seems to act as a communicator between the brain, the immune system, and the gut.
'Troubling allegations' prompt Health Canada review of studies used to approve popular weed-killer
Health Canada says in light of "troubling allegations," its scientists are reviewing hundreds of studies used during the approval process for glyphosate, the active ingredient in Canada's most popular herbicide, Roundup.
The decision comes after a coalition of environmental groups claimed Health Canada relied on studies that were secretly influenced by agrochemical giant Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, when it re-approved use of glyphosate in 2015 and confirmed that decision in 2017.
The coalition, which includes Equiterre, Ecojustice, Canadian Physicians for the Environment and others, says academic papers looking at whether the herbicide causes cancer were presented to Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency as independent, when in fact Monsanto had a hand in writing them.
New Study Finds Harmful Agricultural Pesticides in Rural New York State Homes
“We found that pesticide residues are ubiquitous in rural homes in New York state,” said Laquatra, professor of design and environmental analysis, who noted that positive results for such chemicals were found in every house tested.
GE CHESTNUT TREE: ‘TROJAN HORSE’ AIMED AT OPENING DOOR TO RISKY GE TREES
If approved, it would be the first GE forest tree legalized in the US. It would also be the first GMO approved for release in the wild with the intention of spreading pollen to contaminate wild relatives with the engineered trait. If approved, the unregulated GE American chestnut would eventually replace the wild American chestnut, which would no longer exist in the forests.
After the ESF petition is accepted by the USDA it will be opened up for public comment – anticipated to be anytime in the next few months.
Specifically, the purveyors of factory farm turkeys hope you haven’t heard about the latest turkey salmonella outbreak in 35 states, causing 63 hospitalizations and at least one death.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
The outbreak strain of Salmonella Reading has been identified in various raw turkey products, including ground turkey and turkey patties. The outbreak strain has also been found in raw turkey pet food and live turkeys, indicating it might be widespread in the turkey industry."
Factory farm turkey producers also hope you’ve forgotten that avian flu and its prevention killed so many turkeys in 2015—at least 7.5 million—that turkey giant Jennie-O laid off 233 workers.
They hope you’ve forgotten that scientists at the Bloomberg School’s Center for a Livable Future and Arizona State’s Biodesign Institute found Tylenol, Benadryl, caffeine, statins and Prozac in feather meal samples that included U.S. turkeys—“a surprisingly broad spectrum of prescription and over-the-counter drugs,” said study co-author Rolf Halden of Arizona State University.
And finally, Butterball hopes you’ve forgotten that several of its employees were convicted of sickening animal cruelty and that veterinarian Dr. Sarah Mason admits tipping off Butterball about an imminent raid by Hoke County detectives to investigate the abuse.
Can consumers rely on labels to make good buying decisions? Not really…
Seneff: “This article on GMWatch is packed full of information on why GMOs are not working out the way they were expected to go.”
Bound to fail: The flawed scientific foundations of agricultural genetic engineering (part 1)
Now there's a new kid on the block: so-called gene editing, which includes the CRISPR-Cas method. Instead of trying to work out why the first generation of genetic engineering tools hasn't delivered or worked, so that maybe there could be lessons to be learned for the next generation, they are now coming up with the same promises – but even bigger, if that is possible.
There is no critical debate or analysis – least of all of the scientific reasons why GM didn't deliver the first time.
In 2014, on the topic of CRISPR-Cas, a Newsweek article stated, "GMO scientists could save the world from hunger, if we let them". Really? Saving the world with point mutations? Again? Have we not learned from the last 20 years, when we tried that and it didn't work?
SA Government rejects Monsanto’s Triple stacked GM Drought tolerant maize - Johannesburg 15 November 2018
The African Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) welcomes the decision of the South African biosafety authorities, rejecting Monsanto’s application for the commercial release of its GM drought tolerant triple stacked maize: MON 87460 x MON 89034 x NK 603.
At its meeting on the 2nd October 2018, the Executive Council: GMO Act, refused to authorize the GM maize for commercial growing as it found that the data provided by Monsanto was insufficient to demonstrate the claimed drought tolerant and insect resistant efficacy of the GM event.
In particular, the EC found that the drought tolerant field trial data presented by Monsanto for trials conducted over a period of 5 years (2014-2018) in Hopetown, Orania, Lutzville and Malelane, were sorely wanting.
The EC found that the drought data provided by Monsanto, specifically the kernel count per row and the kernel count per ear data showed no statistical significant difference between the GM event and conventional maize.
California Consumer Sues Quaker Oats over Glyphosate Contamination
According to the Quaker Oats complaint, the defendants sell, manufacturer and market several products under the Quaker Oats brand and make “several detailed representations about the health attributes of the products on the front of the product packages.”
The suit references recent testing by the Environmental Working Group which revealed that the defendants’ products contain glyphosate..
The plaintiff holds PepsiCo Inc. and The Quaker Oats Co. Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly made false product health representations and material omissions regarding the products’ labeling.
Seneff: “Rather than defending its food quality, it seems to me that Canada should heed the warnings coming from India and Italy, and fix its food supply. The US is most likely even worse than Canada in terms of glyphosate contamination in the food. But we don't bother to test so the world at large is largely unaware.”
Seneff: “Fascinating article about gut microbes in the brain.”
Do gut bacteria make a second home in our brains?
The brain is a protected environment, partially walled off from the contents of the bloodstream by a network of cells that surround its blood vessels. Bacteria and viruses that manage to penetrate this blood-brain barrier can cause life-threatening inflammation. Some research has suggested distant microbes—those living in our gut—might affect mood and behavior and even the risk of neurological disease, but by indirect means. For example, a disruption in the balance of gut microbiomes could increase the production of a rogue protein that may cause Parkinson’s disease if it travels up the nerve connecting the gut to the brain.
