Studies on Glyphosate Toxicity Remain Secret

by Claire Robinson GMWatch.org July 4, 2014 Pesticide regulators are refusing to release to the public the key industry studies on glyphosate that underpin regulatory authorizations and safety limits set for the herbicide, writes Claire Robinson. The glyphosate toxicity studies you’re not allowed to see On opposite sides of the globe, pesticide regulators are refusing to release to the public the key industry studies on glyphosate that underpin regulatory ...Read full article...

Holland’s Parliament Bans Glyphosate Herbicides

From the end of 2015 onward the sale of Glyphosate -based herbicides to private persons, including the World’s number one herbicide ‘Roundup’, will be prohibited in the Netherlands over health fears. Glyphosate is an ingredient of Roundup, which is sold to private persons as a weed control product.

Genetically modified (GM) foods are inherently unsafe

By Jeffrey M. Smith Institute for Responsible Technology January 3, 2014 Genetically modified (GM) foods are inherently unsafe, and current safety assessments are not competent to protect us from or even identify most dangers. Overwhelming evidence to support this conclusion is now compiled in the book Genetic Roulette: The documented health risks of genetically engineered foods, which presents an abundance of adverse findings and theoretical risks associated with GM ...Read full article...

Informed People Survive, Misinformed People Perish

Ignored Reality Is Going To Wipe Out The Human Race To inform people is hard slugging.  Everything is lined up against the public being informed, or the policymakers for that matter. News is contaminated by its service to special interests and hidden agendas. Many scientists or their employers are dependent on federal money. Even psychologists and anthropologists were roped into the government’s torture and occupation programs. Economists tell lies ...Read full article...

The peer-reviewed report, published last week in the scientific journal Entropy, said evidence indicates that residues of “glyphosate,” the chief ingredient in Roundup weed killer, which is sprayed over millions of acres of crops, has been found in food. ...Read full article...

Genetic Genocide: How misused Science Threatens Life

The problem with genetic modification of plants, animals and plants; cloning and splicing genes is not its existence, but the results of this unregulated practice. By LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | OCTOBER 29, 2012 If you are partially or totally ignorant about genetically modified products, I will not blame you. In 15 years of research I have not been able to get a significant grasp on what genetically engineering humans, ...Read full article...

Roundup is on the Soil, Food and Rain

Wherever Monsanto’s chemical is used, it leaves the soil, goes back up and down on our heads. GMFreeze.org October 22, 2011 Monitoring by the US Geological Survey (USGS) has revealed that glyphosate and its breakdown product Aminomethylphosphonic acid (known as AMPA) are frequently found in rainfall and rivers in the Mississippi Basin, where most GM crops tolerant to glyphosate are grown. Glyphosate (the basis of Monsanto’s brand name ...Read full article...

Genetic Genocide: How Misused Science Endangers… … All Life

Genetic engineering is not new. Apparently, it has been talked about -if not applied- since the 1960?s. The issue with genetic modification of plants, animals, animals and plants, cloning and splicing genes is not its existence. It is the results of these unregulated practices what should alarm us. by Luis R.

GM crops, Pesticides Cause Deadly Disease

NaturalNews July, 2011 The recent upswing in crop failures and spontaneous animal miscarriages appears to be the result of a deadly new plant disease, suggests a prominent researcher. According to ongoing research being conducted by Emeritus Professor Don Huber from Purdue University in Indiana, this disease is likely a result of genetically-modified (GM) crops and the pesticides and herbicides used to grow them.

Regulators knew Monsanto’s Roundup causes birth defects

by Amber Cornelio 5 June 2011 I can count the suggestions on two hands from people mowing my Atlanta lawn that I should spray my rockery with a weed-killer, Roundup as that’s the only thing that will stop the dandelions from growing! And those weeds certainly spring up rather quickly with all the rain we get here in Atlanta! However, a new report was released today that industry regulators ...Read full article...
