It looks like Monsanto could soon go the way of many missing airplanes in the Bermuda triangle. Following a recent study on Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup and its main chemical ingredient glyphosate, Bermuda has decided to suspend any importation of glyphosate/Roundup until further research give reason to lift the suspension.
“Effective immediately, all importers of glyphosate/Roundup will be notified that the approval for all glyphosate products has been suspended, pending th [...]

By Carey WedlerA class action suit against the Monsanto corporation was filed in Los Angeles this week in the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles County. It accuses the company of false advertising for its implied claims that the herbicide, Roundup, is safe for humans. As the lawsuit details: Defendant makes the claim that Roundup, the world’s most popular weedkiller, works by targeting an enzyme supposedly found only in plants, but not in people. And this is blatantly false.The enz [...]

Findings of new study need confirmation in animal tests
Roundup is an endocrine disruptor and is toxic to human cells in vitro (tested in culture dishes in the laboratory) at levels permitted in drinking water in Australia, a new study has found.
This is the first study to examine the effects of glyphosate and Roundup on progesterone production by human female cells in an in vitro system that models key aspects of reproduction in women.
About 30 years of research regarding non-Hodgkin lymphoma (cancer) and its correlation with occupational exposure to 80 agricultural pesticides and 21 chemical groups has linked glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, with cancer of the lymph tissue.
In a paper published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 44 papers representing studies in high-income countries found that there was a “striking increase” in the incidence of non-Hodgkin [...]
A professor in Argentina backs up the WHO’s classification of glyphosate as a probable carcinogen, noting that the international scientific community has known for years that the herbicide glyphosate causes cancer.

It’s a question that, just a few years ago, would be considered absurd. But as we have seen revolutionary developments in the search for truth regarding Monsanto’s gloyphosate-based Roundup herbicide over these past few months, we can now truly ask the question: will Monsanto’s best selling chemical stew finally be banned by the United States and around the world?
And thanks to a number of major studies, news campaigns, and announcements by leading scientists, the answer may v [...]
Approximately 13 million acres of illegal GM corn have been planted in the US. Another 88% of all corn crops grown in the US are currently genetically modified. Even without being slathered in Roundup chemicals, these crops are killing us, and there is new evidence explaining why.

You all know that we here at Nutritional Anarchy are adamantly opposed to toxic farming methods like the use of Round-Up killer.
But little did we know that it is apparently so safe you could drink an entire quart of it and live to tell the tale. Apparently according to a former Greenpeace-activist-turned-Monsanto-lobbyist (there’s gotta be a heck of a story in how that particular occupational transition occurred), it wouldn’t hurt you at all. (You can read Patrick Moore’s bio [...]
The WHO has issued a damning pronouncement about the world’s largest seed company:
Glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s toxic Round-up herbicide, is “probably carcinogenic.”
The announcement comes after a report was published by the International Agency for Research on Cancer in a British medical journal. The agency cited numerous studies in which occupational exposure to glyphosate was linked to “increased risks for non-Hodgkin lymphoma”.

Are the full body protective suits not enough of a tip off that pesticides are toxic? If not, consider this: Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide – the most widely used and best-selling herbicide in the U.S. and one of the world’s most popular weed-killers – has been labeled a probable carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
The decision was made by IARC, the France-based cancer research arm of the World Health Organization, which considered the status of [...]
