Seneff: “There is a new paper out, and it is both awe inspiring and terrifying.
I believe it nearly proves that glyphosate substitutes for glycine during protein synthesis.
The authors used CRISPR technology to redesign the EPSP synthase protein in various plants, and showed that they could copy mutations that had occurred naturally in glyphosate-resistant weeds to effect protection from glyphosate. Since CRISPR is officially not considered a GMO technology, it should be much easier to get past the regulatory process. This means, in practice that they will be able to come up with glyphosate resistant versions of practically every food crop. In the future, we can expect high levels of glyphosate in basically ALL of our food.
But what is even more interesting to me is that they discovered that the best way to create a version of the protein that is glyphosate resistant is to change the DNA code so that the highly conserved glycine residue at location 96 (in E. coli) is swapped out for alanine. This introduces an extra methyl group, which crowds PEP at the binding site. So it's best to also modify another amino acid nearby to provide more room for PEP. You can end up with a version of the protein that has essentially the same activity towards PEP as the wild type, but which is absolutely resistant to glyphosate even at very high concentrations. They don't seem to be disturbed by the fact that the new protein has plenty of room for glyphosate at the PEP binding site yet it is not sensitive to glyphosate.
The explanation of course is that glyphosate is substituting for the glycine residue at location 96 (in E. coli). The extra methylphosphonyl group bulging out into the cavity disrupts PEP binding.”
From the comments…
Q: “I noticed the paper was funded by Dow Dupont....what could possibly go wrong!?”
A: Seneff: “I noticed that too. Ominous! Interesting that these two merged in 2017. I can see dollar signs in their eyes thinking of all those patentable non-GMO seeds they're going to be able to engineer to allow glyphosate to be used indiscriminately on just about any crop!”

Seneff: “Food allergies are an epidemic today, especially in the industrialized world where they eat a lot of glyphosate-contaminated processed foods. I would predict glyphosate as a contaminant in dairy, gluten, peanuts, soy, eggs, farmed fish, and even meats like chicken, beef and pork. I believe that glyphosate incorporating into the proteins in place of glycine is a key driver behind the epidemic.”

Dying Man vs. Monsanto, 7 minutes
Definition of Pesticides on the website of Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Govt. Of India.
“Pesticide is a chemical or biological agent (such as a virus, bacterium, antimicrobial, or disinfectant) that deters, incapacitates, kills, or otherwise discourages pests. Pesticides may cause acute and delayed health effects in people who are exposed. Such adverse health effects range from simple irritation of the skin and eyes to more severe effects like affecting the nervous system, mimicking hormones causing reproductive problems, and causing cancer.”

The Pesticide Generation - Children on the Front Line
The medical community is unambiguous: Théo’s malformations are not genetic, but definitely linked to an external factor. “Right from birth, Théo’s doctors pointed a finger at pesticides,” says Sabine, who at the time didn’t make an immediate connection to the weed killer that she used at home to spray the horse paddock. “The wake-up call came later,” she remembers. In August 2008, to be precise. Just as she did every year at the same time, Sabine treated the area with Glyper, a herbicide containing glyphosate. “It suddenly hit me; I remembered what the surgeon had told me about pesticides.” Due to the teratogenic risks of glyphosate [causing malformation of embryos and foetal abnormalities] cited in scientific studies, doctors say the link to Théo’s birth defects is “highly likely”. “I was exposed [to glyphosate] at a crucial moment in my pregnancy – during the first four weeks,” she says. “I didn’t even know I was pregnant, so I didn’t take any particular precautions.”
Even worse, Sabine knowingly chose the product. At the time, this environmentally minded mother-to-be fell for agrochemical giant Monsanto’s ad campaign promoting the merits of its product Roundup, the “first biodegradable weed killer”. Meanwhile, in 2001, the American corporation had already been sued in France for false or misleading advertising. The company, ordered to pay a €15,000 fine, appealed. The Court of Cassation [France’s supreme court of appeal] upheld the penalty two years later. “During all that time, the ad continued to be aired,” says Théo’s mother, who heard about the court case “too late”.https://webdoc.france24.com/france-pesti...mXcdF1DuqCYu534
The Insect Apocalypse Is Here - What does it mean for the rest of life on Earth?
For a moment, Riis was transported to his childhood on the Danish island of Lolland, in the Baltic Sea. Back then, summer bike rides meant closing his mouth to cruise through thick clouds of insects, but inevitably he swallowed some anyway. When his parents took him driving, he remembered, the car’s windshield was frequently so smeared with insect carcasses that you almost couldn’t see through it. But all that seemed distant now. He couldn’t recall the last time he needed to wash bugs from his windshield; he even wondered, vaguely, whether car manufacturers had invented some fancy new coating to keep off insects. But this absence, he now realized with some alarm, seemed to be all around him. Where had all those insects gone? And when? And why hadn’t he noticed?https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/27/magaz...v1aZP2mkkb_R7gw
China doesn’t want poisoned food but is still willing to manufacture Glyphosate to poison you and your family.
China set to shock markets with low glyphosate residue limits in food imports
The Chinese introduction of low MRLs, which are officially based on health concerns following the classification of glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen in 2015 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, has been expected by both U.S. and Australian farming organizations for some time.
It is expected that China will now import more grains from Russia, where glyphosate is not widely used as a desiccant. This also enables China to use glyphosate as a political tool in the current U.S. / China trade war, as food and raw material imports from the U.S., which often contain high levels of the weedkiller, will be put under major pressure.
China is a major glyphosate exporter in the world. Over 80% of China-made glyphosate is exported to account for over 60% of the global supply. The output of glyphosate in China increased from 316,000 tons in 2010 to about 505,000 tons in 2017.
It is for this reason that China is walking the glyphosate tightrope rather than calling for a phase-out like France or an outright ban.https://www.gmwatch.org/en/news/latest-n...sh14udJPSPhM_x4

A murder over a Monsanto Chemical
Monsanto’s new herbicide was supposed to save U.S. farmers from financial ruin. Instead, it upended the agriculture industry, pitting neighbor against neighbor in a struggle for survival.
In the past, farmers accepted drift as a cost of doing business. If chemicals inadvertently spread from one plot of land to another, farmers would typically settle any losses amicably through a handshake deal. But with Monsanto’s new products suddenly being sprayed at a massive scale, drift is now sparking conflicts—and violence. The controversy over dicamba reveals the fault lines of modern agriculture, which is increasingly built atop a precarious framework of chemistry. It also reveals who holds the power. The new seed-and-chemical combination serves as a kind of protection racket, initiated by Monsanto: Pay to use dicamba-resistant soybeans, or you may lose your crop and your livelihood.https://newrepublic.com/article/152304/m...bGqUQH_8zMUmMKU
Scientific scrutiny of pesticide residue in food grows; regulatory protections questioned - Carey Gillam
The EPA is so confident that traces of pesticides in food are safe that the agency has granted multiple chemical company requests for increases in the allowed tolerances, effectively providing a legal basis for higher levels of pesticide residues to be allowed in American food.
But recent scientific studies have prompted many scientists to warn that years of promises of safety may be wrong. While no one is expected to drop dead from eating a bowl of cereal containing pesticide residues, repeated low level exposures to trace amounts of pesticides in the diet could be contributing to a range of health problems, particularly for children, scientists say.
“There are probably many other health effects; we just haven’t studied them”
A team of Harvard scientists published a commentary in October stating that more research about potential links between disease and consumption of pesticide residues is "urgently needed" as more than 90 percent of the U.S. population has pesticide residues in their urine and blood. The primary route of exposure to these pesticides is through the food people eat, the Harvard research team said.
Several additional Harvard-affiliated scientists published a study earlier this year of women who were trying to get pregnant. The findings suggested that dietary pesticide exposure within a "typical" range was associated both with problems women had getting pregnant and delivering live babies, the scientists said.https://www.organicconsumers.org/news/chemicals-food-not-safe#close

Trump Picks Former Monsanto Executive to Head U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
In what environmental groups are calling a cruel joke, the Trump administration’s has chosen a former agro-chemical executive to head of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service.
Aurelia Skipwith worked as a corporate affairs executive at Monsanto for six years before spending the last year and a half in the U.S. Department of the Interior, where she oversaw the dismantling of dozens of wildlife protections, including:
The discontinuation of studies assessing the impact of pesticides on endangered species
The reversal of a decision prohibiting bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides and genetically modified crops on national wildlife refuges.
If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Skipwith’s duties will include enforcing federal wildlife laws, protecting endangered species, managing migratory birds, and conserving and restoring wildlife habitat.
It should also be noted — since one of her main duties would be to protect fish — that agro-chemical companies like Monsanto are largely to blame for the “dead zones” of the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, where runoff from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides has contributed to making entire coastlines uninhabitable by fish.
The pick continues a Trump Administration trend of filling top environmental positions with members of the industries the agencies are intended to regulate, notes the Organic Consumers Association.https://returntonow.net/2018/11/06/trump...S_mRvjBX1n6ajbM
