Baum Hedlund Earns 2019 Trial Team of the Year Award for Monsanto Case

“We were finally able to show the jury the secret, internal Monsanto documents proving that Monsanto has known for decades that glyphosate and specifically Roundup could cause cancer,” said Wisner following the verdict.

“Despite the Environmental Protection Agency’s failure to require labeling, we are proud that an independent jury followed the evidence and used its voice to send a message to Monsanto that its years of deception regarding Roundup is over and that they should put consumer safety first over profits.”

Seneff: “The French have found glyphosate in disposable diapers. I'm not surprised - it's already been found in Tampons.”

French Safety Agency Discovers 60 Toxic Chemicals including Glyphosate in Baby Diapers

The list of chemicals is as long as it is disturbing. In total, ANSES identified some 60 chemicals, including glyphosate, the active chemical in Monsanto’s infamous herbicide Roundup. Some of the pesticides in the report have been banned in the European Union for over fifteen years, such as lindane, quintozene and hexachlorobenzene.

12 Reasons Why Even Low Levels of Glyphosate are Unsafe By Zen Honeycutt, Founding Executive Director Mom’s Across America, Children’s Heath Defense Coalition Partner

The detection of glyphosate in these foods has set off alarms of concern in households and food manufacturers’ offices around the world. Lawsuits have sprung up against companies that make food products that claim to be “100% Natural” and yet contain glyphosate residues. These lawsuits have been successful. Debates, using the argument that “the dose makes the poison,” have been pushed by media. Speculation is that these media outlets are funded by advertisers that make or sell these chemicals or have sister companies that do, and threatening their profits would be unwise for all involved – except the consumers.

It is time to set the record straight…

Here are 12 reasons why there is no safe level of glyphosate herbicide residue in our food or beverages.

Clearly, it is time for food and beverage manufacturers to have a zero tolerance for glyphosate residue levels and for the US EPA and regulatory agencies everywhere to stop ignoring the science and to revoke the license of glyphosate immediately.

Today's letter to the EPA: Neil, Thomas and Khue,

We now fully understand how the EPA could find glyphosate not carcinogenic. You used studies funded by the industry rather than the peer-reviewed studies that the IARC used. This is not only cherry picking, it is a deliberate twisting of science to produce the outcome that you clearly are most comfortable that protects the profits of the corporations.
See Charles Benbrook's new paper :…/2019-paper-on-glyphosate-ge…/

Many people want to write you off completely, they are telling me to give up on the EPA- that you are fully corrupted. Is this true? Or will you review the studies that the IARC reviewed and deliver a decision that actually takes into consideration the final formulation, as it is sprayed on our food? Will you actually take into consideration the health of vulnerable babies and pregnant women?

We hope you will respond immediately and tell us that you will reconsider your decision and review the studies the IARC used. In the meantime will you put a moratorium on glyphosate herbicides and protect the American people as France has protected their citizens?

Glyphosate Causes Cancer: EPA “Trade Secret” Sealed Files Reveal Cancer Link Known Back in the 1970s - 2015

Dr. Samsel is a research scientist and consultant who has been studying the toxicity of glyphosate, the world’s most prevalent herbicide used in commercial agriculture on GMO crops, for many years now. He has authored several papers with Dr. Stephanie Seneff on the toxicity of glyposate, including:

The biotech agricultural community has laughed off these studies primarily by attacking Dr. Samsel and Dr. Seneff’s credentials on this topic.

However, they are not laughing anymore.

In this interview, Dr. Anthony Samsel states that he now has documents received from the EPA which are “trade secret” documents belonging to Monsanto. These documents allegedly are safety studies about glyphosate from the late 1970s to the early 1980s, and others beyond those dates.

The documents reference animal studies, according to Samsel, with short-term and long-term studies conducted on mice, rats, rabbits, and dogs. Monsanto allegedly asked the EPA to seal these documents as “trade secrets” so no one else could review the data from these studies.

Samsel discusses one particular study on rabbits that looked at the effects of glyphosate on the skin. They monitored the rabbits’ blood chemistry, and one of their findings found an increase of lactate dehydrogenase, an enzyme in the blood related to tissue damage.

Another study, according to Samsel, showed that glyphosate went right into the animal’s bone marrow. Samsel claims this is dangerous, because new cells are born in the marrow and pass on to the thymus gland, where T-cells and white blood cells are eventually formed. Samsel considers this significant, especially in light of the recent WHO report that listed glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic” in causing non-Hodgkin lymphoma and prostate cancer.

Next Samsel discussed long-term studies conducted in rats that lasted 26 months. He considers those studies very significant. The reason they are very significant, is because they used a control group and much lower doses of glyphosate. Most people believe that the higher the exposure to the herbicide, the greater the effect. Samsel stated that glyphosate has an “inverse dose response relationship,” and that this is clearly shown in the Monsanto “trade secret” studies.

According to Samsel, these studies from 1978 to 1980 by Biodynamics in New Jersey clearly showed tumor growths in many organs at low doses of glyphosate. These studies were submitted to the EPA in 1981. The studies showed significant tumor growth in organs such as the kidneys, but these studies were dismissed as “not significant,” primarily by allegedly manipulating the control groups.

In Part 2, Dr. Samsel explains how one of the ways Monsanto was able to dismiss results of their studies was by using a standard lab animal feed supplied by Purina, which is known to increase carcinomas. This animal feed was in the “control” animals, to minimize the effects of the results in animals exposed to glyphosate. Samsel states that he has “several studies” that show this link between the lab feed and cancers.

Seneff: “Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is an epidemic worldwide. Rates in China have skyrocketed to 43% of the population. But don't worry! Pharma has lots of plans for new drugs to treat the problem. I'm pretty confident an organic whole foods diet would go a long ways towards avoiding it in the first place.”

Monsanto's patent for Glyphosate as an Antibiotic

The Shikimate Pathway is mentioned in this patent. The Shikimate Pathway is also present in your gut bacteria. When you eat GMO food or non-GMO food that contains Glyphosate residues, you kill off some of your gut bacteria via their Shikimate Pathway. Our gut bacteria are the major portion of our immune systems. Now do you see how Glyphosate works to make us ill when it kills off our gut bacteria through their Shikimate Pathway?

Our government, through our 'National Institute of Health' funded the 'Human Microbiome Project'. Through this project we learned that the main part of our immune function is in our gut bacteria. Everyone who eats food should read and learn about how our gut bacteria function through their Shikimate Pathways. Glyphosate kills plants through their Shikimate Pathways and Glyphosate residues in our food kills our gut bacteria (our immune systems) through their Shikimate Pathways.
When your immune system is killed it is compromised, and you get ill.

Herbicides as Ripeners for Sugarcane

Abstract: Chemical ripening of sugarcane is an important component to profitable sugar production in the United States as well as other sugarcane industries throughout the world. Harvesting of sugarcane often begins before the sugarcane reaches the desirable maturity level. This is especially true in the Louisiana sugarcane industry where the window for harvesting is limited because of the risk of freezing temperatures encountered in a temperate climate. Research on the application of chemicals, mostly of herbicide origin, to enhance sucrose accumulation (ripening) or limit flowering to conserve stored sucrose has been conducted for more than 60 yr. The only sugarcane ripener currently registered for use in the United States is glyphosate applied before harvest. The herbicide fluazifop is used as the primary ripener of sugarcane in South Africa. The herbicides glyphosate, fluazifop, and sulfometuron-methyl and the growth regulators ethephon and trinexapac-ethyl are registered for use in Brazil. There is a continuing need to evaluate sugarcane ripeners to increase the utility of currently registered ripeners and to find additional ripeners for use by sugarcane industries. The need for alternatives to glyphosate is especially critical before a glyphosate-tolerant sugarcane can be utilized to improve control of problematic weeds.Nomenclature: Ethephon; fluazifop; glyphosate; sulfometuron-methyl; trinexapac-ethyl; sugarcane, Saccharum interspecific hybrid.

Colon and Rectal Cancers Rising in Young People - 2017

“People born in 1990, like my son, have double the risk of colon cancer and quadruple the risk of rectal cancer” compared to the risk someone born in 1950 faced at a comparable age, said Rebecca Siegel, an epidemiologist with the American Cancer Society and the lead author of the new report, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute on Tuesday. And though the absolute risk is still small in younger people, she said, “They carry the risk forward with them as they age.”

“An especially grievous harm to our democracy occurs when the government uses the power of the criminal laws to target unpopular speech to protect those with power — which is exactly what this law was always about,” said Rita Bettis Austen, ACLU of Iowa legal director, in a statement. “It has effectively silenced advocates and ensured that animal cruelty, unsafe food safety practices, environmental hazards, and inhumane working conditions go unreported for years.”

What Does Monsanto’s ‘Roundup’ Do To You?

RFK, Jr.: “On Jan. 17, 1961, outgoing President Dwight Eisenhower gave the most important speech of his lifetime, warning his fellow citizens that the greatest threat to our democracy and our values was not a foreign foe, but the expanding power of our homegrown military-industrial complex. If unchecked, he predicted this cabal would transform our nation from the world’s exemplary democracy into a militarized plutocracy. The assassinations of my uncle, my father, Dr. King and Malcolm X were four of the great traumas that pushed America off its historical path of idealism and onto the trajectory of imperialism abroad and a national security state at home. Mountains of undeniable proof now support involvement by U.S. military, intelligence and police agencies in those murders — and their subsequent cover-ups. The process of recovering our national idealism must begin with an effort to acknowledge the truth about these assassinations.”
