(NaturalNews) It's easy to hide knowledge from the public when you run the very industry that the public perceptibly needs. So much knowledge about glyphosate is buried or disregarded because the public now feels that the Roundup chemical is a necessity for both agriculture and lawn... [...]
By 2025, half the kids born in the U.S. will be diagnosed with autism, according to Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. She, like many others says autism isn’t just genetic – it is almost surely due to environmental factors. Just a couple of those factors are Monsanto’s RoundUp (glyphosate) and heavy exposure to a cocktail of heavy metals, including aluminum.
Dr. Seneff isn’t respected by the ivory towe [...]
(NaturalNews) The fight taking place doesn't always involve guns on the battlefield. Sometimes the battlefield is something quiet and innocent like a field of crops. The gun is sometimes the chemical pesticides and herbicides soaking into the plants, loading up in the soil. The pesticides... [...]

Local doctors in the Canindeyú region of Paraguay are alleging that the use of the toxic herbicide glyphosate on soybean crops has caused the death of two children, and put 33 more in the hospital.
Two children (ages 3-yrs, and 6 mos.) from the same family suddenly died last week, one en route to the hospital, another just after being released due to a poisoning outbreak of glyphosate in the Huber Duré settlement. Their bodies have been sent to the capital of Paraguay, Asunción, for detail [...]
(NaturalNews) The main ingredient used in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide is highly toxic to pigs, and a new study published in the journal Environmental & Analytical Toxicology has found that, when piglets consume genetically modified (GM) soy feed exposed to this pervasive chemical... [...]
(NaturalNews) Pigs who consume feed with low concentrations of the herbicide glyphosate (also marketed as Roundup) give birth to piglets with a wide array of severe defects, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Leipzig, Germany, and Sadat City University... [...]
Heather CallaghanActivist PostIn April, a Danish farmer called for a ban on glyphosate. For three years he had used non-GMO soy feed for his pig herds, but when he ran out, he ordered two tons of GM soy feed. His herdsman immediately told the farmer of diarrhea in the piglets and lack of appetite in the sows. He had not told the herdsman of the feed switch.Worse, he began noticing an absurd amount of deformed piglets and reproductive problems in the sows. Roundup is used on GMO s [...]

Monsanto’s favorite agro-chemical is causing chronic kidney failure in countries throughout the world. While the biotech giant has tried to keep this information from spreading into public awareness, like their chemicals that leach into the soil and taint our food, the truth cannot be stopped. Dr. Jeff Ritterman explains just how injurious Roundup Ready chemicals and glyphosate truly are.
While a high court in France has accused Monsanto of falsely representing RoundUp in the past, stating M [...]

Glyphosate in Review

Health Impact News
There were a series of events that took place in the mid-1970s, which have proven to be highly destructive to the health of Americans in the 21st century.
In 1974, a new herbicide called Roundup was released into the marketplace.  It promised to be a miracle weed killer that would do its job without harming human health.
In 1977, a sugar tariff was established, which dramatically raised the c [...]

Brazil is quickly trying to change course on its biotech policies and capture more of the world market demanding GMO-free products. We reported recently that the United State's lax GMO laws are hurting U.S. exports to countries who have stricter GMO policies. This includes a recent announcement that China had rejected U.S. GMO corn, resulting in a sales loss of over 1 million tons of corn. China instead turned to Brazil to purchase their corn this year.
Now Brazil is reportedly looking to ban t [...]

Approximately 1 billion pounds of pesticides are sprayed on crops in the United States alone every single year. Thanks to pesticide/herbicide-resistant GMO crops, that number is growing every year. Much of this pesticide spraying contains a toxic ingredient known as glyphosate – the primary poisonous active ingredient in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide RoundUp. Regulators as well as Monsanto claim that this ingredient is excreted from the body, b [...]
Given the extent of published research pieces finding a positive relationship between glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide RoundUp) and cancer, it isn’t very jaw-dropping anymore to hear of a new study coming to similar conclusions. Indeed, one new review and a series of meta-analyses of 30 years-worth of research has found that Monsanto’s RoundUp could be causing blood cancers in the lymph glands, specifically non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).
The r [...]
Sayer JiActivist PostA new review on the relationship between pesticide exposure and the risk of blood cancers in the lymph glands (lymphomas) has confirmed the existence of a link with the world's most popular herbicide glyphosate (aka Roundup).Published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health and titled, "Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and Occupational Exposure to Agricultural Pesticide Chemical Groups and Active Ingredients: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis," [...]
First Russia, Tasmania, and Mexico say no to Monsanto and now, the Netherlands have passed a similar ban, determined to keep Glyphosate-laced herbicides away from the general public for good.
Starting from the end of 2015, the sale of glyphosate-based herbicides to private parties will be prohibited due to a recent decision by the Dutch Parliament. People who spray RoundUp on their gardens and lawns will have to find another form of pest control since glyphosate, the main ingredient in RoundUp [...]
The old saying one step forward two steps back comes to mind as Sri Lanka announces that despite several studies linking the use of herbicides like Monsanto’s RoundUp to kidney disease in farmers, it will postpone the ban on toxic glyphosate that was instated just months ago. Why? Because Monsanto complained and pushed back.
Just as in the case of the Mexican Judge Monsanto is trying to remove from his seat due to his repeated decisions to ban GMO corn in their country, the Big Ag Giant and ch [...]

If you believed Monsanto, you would think conventionally-grown crops have higher levels of toxic glyphosate than GM varieties. Not surprisingly, you would be wrong. Despite Monsanto’s assurance that their GM crops are safe, a recent analysis in Food Chemistry revealed that not only do GM crops “take up and accumulate” dangerous pesticides during the growing season, but that Monsanto’s research to the contrary is completely misleading.
According to t [...]
It has been revealed by numerous scientists that herbicides and pesticides bioaccumulate in the body – meaning the traces of chemicals we are exposed to in foods consumed daily end up adding up to larger loads of toxicity in the body long term.
One recent study published in the Journal of Environmental & Analytical Toxicology has now proven that animals and humans who consume GMO foods – those that are loaded with glyphosate chemicals, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp – [...]
A full suspension of the toxic main ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, glyphosate, is being demanded by the Brazilian Federal Public Prosecutor in the Federal District. It is currently the most commonly used herbicide in Brazil, and negatively affects numerous crops, as well as human and ecosystem health.
Just one study conducted in Brazil on ‘glyphosate-resistant’ soybeans has shown some reprehensible results from utilizing Monsanto’s favorite venom. Brazil is currently the second [...]
Evidence now exists showing the herbicide Roundup (glyphosate) is responsible for an epidemic of kidney-related deaths in a rural farming region of Northern Sri Lanka, as well as other rural regions around the world, including Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
