Five Reasons Monsanto’s ‘Science’ Doesn’t Add Up

To hear the pesticide and junk food marketers of the world tell it, anyone who questions the value, legitimacy or safety of GMO (genetically modified organisms) crops is naïve, anti-science and irrational to the point of hysteria. But how long can Monsanto ignore the mounting actual scientific evidence that their technology is not only failing to live up to its promises, it’s putting public health at risk? Jim Goodman, farmer, activist and member of the Organic Consumers Association policy advisory board, recently wrote about Monsanto’s deceptive use of the expression “sound science.” But, ‘sound science’ has no scientific definition.

It does not mean peer reviewed, or well documented research. 1. What happens when you mix glyphosate, the key active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, with “hard” water? 2. 3. 4. 5. Roundup Accumulates in GMO Food, Proving Its Lack of Safety - Page 1. Roundup Linked to Global Boom in Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance. Celiac disease, gluten intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome are on the rise worldwide, and that rise has taken place in parallel with the increased use of glyphosate (Roundup) herbicide, shows a new US peer-reviewed paper from Dr.

The Monsanto Menace: The feds see no evil as a belligerent strongman seeks control of America’s food supply. By Chris Parker – When you’re good at something, you want to leverage that.

The Monsanto Menace: The feds see no evil as a belligerent strongman seeks control of America’s food supply

Monsanto’s specialty is killing stuff. In the early years, the St. Louis biotech giant helped pioneer such leading chemicals as DDT, PCBs and Agent Orange. Unfortunately, these breakthroughs had a tendency to kill stuff. And the torrent of lawsuits that comes from random killing put a crimp on long-term profitability. So Monsanto hatched a less lethal, more lucrative plan. New Investigation Alleges US Military, Monsanto Targeting GMO Activists and Independent Scientists. 29th July 2013 By Sayer Ji.

New Investigation Alleges US Military, Monsanto Targeting GMO Activists and Independent Scientists

UK bread and cereal bars found to be contaminated with glyphosate. (NaturalNews) The UK and EU populace doesn't embrace Monsanto's propaganda, and their governments are somewhat less dominated by Monsanto minions than the US government is.

UK bread and cereal bars found to be contaminated with glyphosate

So traces of glyphosate in major British non-GMO food brands should be a huge red flag for us here in America. UK news site The Ecologist featured a study performed by a British anti-GMO group called GM Freeze. Two major food brands contained traces of glyphosate. The research disclosed that all four cereal bars produced by Jordans and 34 out of 40 bread products sampled from Walburtons contained traces of glyhosate. These are both big name brands in the UK. Those traces were below the EU maximum allowable glyphosate residue amounts for cereal products. The facts on glyphosate, 'Satan's molecule' (NaturalNews) The most widely used pesticide chemical in the world, glyphosate has been a target of environmental protection and human rights groups alike for many years now.

The facts on glyphosate, 'Satan's molecule'

And rightly so, as glyphosate, which is widely marketed and sold under the Monsanto-owned brand Roundup, is linked to causing cell damage, genetic mutations, miscarriages, behavioral disorders, reproductive damage, immune disease, cancer, and death. All of this and more is revealed in a 2004 paper published in the Journal of Pesticide Reform, which highlights many of the dirty little secrets about glyphosate that you will never hear about from the U.S.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), or any other regulatory authority for that matter. While the EPA and others are busy arbitrarily declaring glyphosate to be safe enough to eat, real scientists are uncovering the many horrors associated with exposure to this pervasive chemical. Even pro-glyphosate scientists admit chemical-resistant 'superweeds' may destroy future of herbicides, GMOs. (NaturalNews) There has been quite a bit of media coverage recently about the environmental threats of continued overuse of Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, a glyphosate-based chemical solution that continues to be liberally sprayed on tens of millions of acres of genetically-modified (GM) soybeans, corn, cotton, and other conventional crops grown in North and South America.

Even pro-glyphosate scientists admit chemical-resistant 'superweeds' may destroy future of herbicides, GMOs

But, as has even been admitted by pro-glyphosate scientists, the system cannot go on forever in this way, as Roundup-resistant "superweeds" continue to emerge and spread at an alarming rate, threatening to destroy the entire GMO crop system. A 2008 study published in the journal, Pest Management Science, let the cat out of the bag when it described a whole slew of different chemical-resistant superweeds that are already popping up across the U.S., where glyphosate is most heavily used. A major risk, indeed. Stop the Monsanto Protection Act. UPDATE: Your calls are working!

Supreme Court Gives Monsanto Full Ability to Sue Farmers

They were fighting biotech giant Monsanto's ability to sue them for patent infringement when genetically modified seeds inadvertently appear in organic/conventional fields. Yes, were talking about the wind or insects carrying GM seeds onto another farm, which to them is considered contamination.

USGS Study Finds Roundup in 75% of Air and Soil Samples. From Sayer Ji of GreenMed Info: A new study from the U.S. Geological Survey, accepted for publication online ahead of print in the journal Enviromental Toxicology and Chemistry, titled, “Pesticides in Mississippi air and rain: A comparison between 1995 and 2007,”[i] reveals that Roundup herbicide (aka glyphosate) and its still-toxic degradation byproduct AMPA were found in over 75% of the air and rain samples tested from Mississippi in 2007. The researchers evaluated a wide range of pesticides currently being used through weekly composite air and rain sampling collected during the 1995 and 2007 growing seasons in the Mississippi Delta agricultural region. The researchers discovered the following: According to the report, 2 million kilograms of glyphosate were applied statewide in 2007, or 55% of the total herbicide flux for that year (~129 μg/m2), leading them to state the high prevalence of glyphosate in air and water “was not surprising.”
