The Chilling History of Monsanto’s Rise to Power:

By Dr. Mercola

In the featured video, journalist Abby Martin discusses Monsanto’s rise to power and how the company has managed to saturate the global environment with its toxic chemicals, largely through immoral means.

In May, the University of San Francisco (USF) revealed the results from a testing project that began in 2015. The tests, commissioned by the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), found that 93 percent of Americans have detectable levels of the chemical glyphosate in their urine.1

Glyphosate is the most widely used agricultural chemical in the world, and it’s an active ingredient in Monsanto’s broad-spectrum herbicide Roundup. As noted by the Detox Project:2 Continue reading »

Vote-Button-Monsanto-GMO-Fracking

Progressives BETRAYED! Democratic party official platform is now pro FRACKING, pro Monsanto, pro TPP, anti GMO labeling:

Because of the diverse audience we attract, there are a lot of Natural News readers who are still supporting the Democrats. If you’re one of those people, it’s time for you to question what you’re really supporting because you may not be aware that the democratic party openly supports fracking, Monsanto, vaccine mandates, chemical agriculture and the TPP. On top of that, they’re mostly opposed to GMO labeling, too. Only Sen. Sanders really stood up to the biotech industry on that point, and now after the DNC email leaks, you know how the democrat establishment hosed Sanders with a vindictive smear campaign to destroy his chances of winning the nomination.

The truth is, the Democrat party is not a party of progressive ideas. Even the progressive news website Common Dreams has authored this piece blasting the DNC for its betrayals. Continue reading »

These crops can be sprayed with a combination of glyphosate and other herbicides such as dicamba or isoxaflutole. Market authorization has been issued after massive pressure from industry, which already sold its patented seeds in the US for cultivation and now wants to import the harvest to the EU within the next months.

Emails reveal role of Monsanto in Seralini study retraction:

In September 2012 the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) published the research of a team led by the French biologist Professor Gilles-Eric Séralini, which found liver and kidney toxicity and hormonal disturbances in rats fed Monsanto’s GM maize NK603 and very small doses of the Roundup herbicide it is grown with, over a long-term period. An additional observation was a trend of increased tumours in most treatment groups.

In November 2013 the study was retracted by the journal’s editor, A. Wallace Hayes, after the appointment of a former Monsanto scientist, Richard E. Goodman, to the editorial board and a non-transparent review process by nameless people that took several months. Continue reading »

Farmers Diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Sue Roundup’s Monsanto:

By AnonWatcher

Monsanto are being sued by four Nebraskan farmers, who have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, one of the cancers associated with the use of glyphosate – a key ingredient to Roundup.

The farmers, along with an agronomist, are suing the agricultural giant for what they say is false information about the safety of Roundup use and a deliberate misleading of Monsanto’s consumers. Continue reading »

Dr. Hoppin: Glyphosate Exposure Linked to Respiratory Problems in Farmers:

GM crops have been engineered to tolerate being sprayed with the herbicides 2,4-D and glyphosate. Now these have been found to be among a number of pesticides that are associated with allergic and non-allergic wheeze in farmers. The study concludes, “These results for farmers implicate several pesticides that are commonly used in agricultural and residential settings with adverse respiratory effects.” Continue reading »

Federal Judge Rules Lawsuit Against Monsanto Can Proceed:

A federal judge has refused to dismiss a lawsuit by a former coffee grower who claims that Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide gave her cancer.

In another blow to Monsanto Co’s already tarnished public image, a former Kona coffee grower will be allowed to sue the biotechnology giant for possibly contributing to her cancer diagnosis. Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide has been subject to heavy scrutiny following studies linking the herbicide to non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Christine and Kenneth Sheppard, former owners of Dragon’s Lair Kona Coffee Farm in Captain Cook on the Big Island, claim that Monsanto hid the risks associated with glyphosate, a key ingredient in Roundup. Christine Sheppard believes her consistent contact with Roundup caused her to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

US GMO Soybean Farmers’ Expenses Shoot Up over Glyphosate Resistant Superweeds:

Today, U.S. soybean producers spend 88 percent more on crop protectant products than they did six years ago, stated the 2015 National Ag Statistics Survey last month.

“Aside from seed expense, crop protection products (chemicals) are the most expensive input soybean producers pay for,” said Tong Wang, SDSU Extension Advanced Production Specialist, referencing the 2015 farm enterprise analysis data from FINBIN, the farm financial management database, which showed the average cash-rent soybean production farms in Minnesota, North and South Dakota incurred a crop chemical cost of $39 per acre.

To help producers reduce expenses, Wang encourages growers to consider modifying their pest management practices to include non-chemical options. Continue reading »

Monsanto Loses Major PCBs Poisoning Lawsuit, Forced to Pay $46 Million to Victims:

St. Louis, Missouri — Three plaintiffs have been awarded $17.5 million in damages caused by Monsanto and three other companies for negligence in the production of PCBs.

A jury voting 10-2 in St. Louis found Monsanto, Pfizer, Solutia, and Pharmacia must pay the plaintiffs and assessed an additional $29 million in punitive damages against Monsanto for its continued selling of polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, after the compound had been banned, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Plaintiffs in this case — three of nearly 100 involved in litigation, some of whom died — said they developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma from exposure to PCBs. Continue reading »

Monsanto’s Cotton Rejected Again: Burkina Faso Brings Back Indigenous Varieties:

Monsanto has been trying to take over Africa’s cotton for decades with their patented, genetically modified (GM) seed. Not without irony, Burkina Faso is just one of the African countries that has been wary of any of Monsanto’s GM seed, adding to the credo, ‘better off dead, than GM fed,’ when it came to accepting U.S. food aid that was primarily genetically altered. Africa’s biggest cotton grower in Burkina Faso is now phasing out Monsanto’s GM cotton and returning to indigenous varieties by 2018, due to concerns of cross-contamination of local crops and the less-than-stellar performance of Monsanto’s Bt variety.

Bayer’s Acquisition Offer Could Literally Make Monsanto Disappear:

United States — Bayer has now confirmed a buyout bid for agrichemical giant, Monsanto — the maker of Agent Orange, RoundUp, and genetically-modified crops — otherwise known as one of the most hated companies on the planet.

In a statement, Monsanto said Morgan Stanley & Co. is advising the company financially in the “potential acquisition,” but didn’t comment beyond basic information about what the deal might entail. The merger would combine Bayer and Monsanto into the largest agricultural supplier in the world. Continue reading »

Monsanto about to Be Given a Taste of its Own Medicine?:

An oligopoly takes shape to corner the human food supply.

The hunter, it seems, has become the hunted. After wresting control of roughly a quarter of the global seeds market by acquiring a massive portfolio of seed companies, including Agroceres, Asgrow, Cristiani Burkard, Dekalb, Delta & Pine and the seeds division of Cargill North America, Monsanto now suddenly finds itself on the menu of two very powerful, much bigger rivals.

On Thursday, it was reported that Germany’s two chemical-industry titans Bayer and BASF, both of which have a market capitalization more than double Monsanto’s, are mulling a takeover bid. Continue reading »

Green Party MEPs Peed Off with Glyphosate Test Results:

Green MEPs have today received test results confirming the presence of unsafe levels of the ‘probably carcinogenic’ weedkiller glyphosate in their urine.

Source: www.greenparty.org.uk

Glyphosate is the world’s most widely used herbicide. However, glyphosate does more than just kill weeds. In fact, the World Health organisation confirmed last year that the substance is “probably carcinogenic” to humans.

Detox Project comment: It must be noted that the ELISA method used for this testing is not recognized by regulators

Keith Taylor, MEP for the South East, Molly Scott Cato, MEP for the South West, and Jean Lambert, MEP for London, were among a group of 48 MEPs that took part in a symbolic urine test ahead of the European Parliament vote last month to oppose the EU Commission’s proposal to relicense the controversial toxic substance until 2031.

Portugal Wakes Up to Glyphosate Contamination Reality:

Glyphosate testing on urine and food products, carried out by the Portuguese No GMO Coalition in cooperation with the Detox Project, has revealed much higher levels of the World’s most used herbicide in Portugal than in other EU countries.

There has been a heated political and public debate since the release of the results in Portugal and the state-owned TV channel RTP has covered the story all week (see video of top headline news here).

Glyphosate, which is a probable human carcinogen according to the World Health Organization’s cancer agency IARC, is the most used herbicide in Portugal, as it is all over the World. More than 1600 tons of glyphosate are sold every year in the country which, beyond agricultural use, is also sprayed widely in urban areas both by local councils and gardeners. Continue reading »

Glyphosate and cancer: Read how this deadly weed killer promotes multiple myeloma, leukemia, sperm damage, infertility, kidney damage, autism, endocrine disruption, DNA damage and birth defects:

According to biotech industry and its army of mercenary trolls and science shills, glyphosate is perfectly safe to eat and doesn’t cause cancer.

Of course, that claim holds about as much scientific credibility as Big Tobacco’s claim that “smoking cigarettes doesn’t cause lung cancer or heart disease” — the “scientific” mantra of the tobacco era… dutifully repeated by the Journal of the American Medical Association for decades, by the way.

Glyphosate Testing Revolution – The New Science:

Regulators and the food industry worldwide have shown a strong lack of interest in testing food products and the human population for residues of the World’s most used herbicide – glyphosate. The Detox Project and NGOs, supported by the public, have thus taken it upon themselves to provide glyphosate testing services, which have already led to some shocking results.

However, now that the Glyphosate Testing Revolution has reached a more developed stage it is important for NGOs and others to know how to provide responsible and scientifically valid glyphosate testing results to the public and to regulators. Continue reading »

Ted-Cruz-Anti-Science-Zealots-500

Ted Cruz goes all-in for Monsanto; insults tens of millions of health-conscious Americans by calling them ‘anti science zealots’:

U.S. presidential candidate and Texas senator Ted Cruz went all-in for Monsanto on the campaign trail in Iowa, parroting Monsanto’s propaganda by proclaiming that GMOs are feeding the world while insulting health-conscious consumers by equating support of GMO labeling with “anti-science zealotry.”

At the Iowa Agricultural Summit, Cruz revealed that he in effect fully supports the mass poisoning of the American people with hidden (unlabeled) GMOs, cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide, farmer suicides caused by GMO crop failures and the widespread genetic pollution unleashed by genetically modified crops. “[W]e shouldn’t let anti-science zealotry shutdown the ability to produce low-cost quality food for billions across the globe,” he stated, invoking a false claim that’s actually a widely disproven Monsanto talking point.
