New Study Finds Strong Link Between Glyphosate & Human Liver Disease

  • The Facts:A new study outlines a strong link between Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, and human liver disease.
  • Reflect On:Glyphosate has contaminated much of our soil and it’s in many of the foods we eat. Decades of research has shown the dangers of this product, so how have our federal health regulatory agencies been able to approve this substance, and others, as safe?

Scientists and health professionals have been raising concerns about pesticides for decades. The idea that these products were ever approved as safe by our federal health regulatory agencies is truly mind blowing, given the fact that their toxicity and danger seem to be unquestionable. In 2012, the Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) stated that “Children today are sicker than they were a generation ago. From childhood cancers to autism, birth defects and asthma, a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders are on the rise. Our assessment of the latest science leaves little room for doubt; pesticides are one key driver of this sobering trend.”

EWG: In New Round of Tests, Monsanto’s Weedkiller Still Contaminates Foods Marketed to Children

General Mills and other leading food companies have not stopped selling their top-rated children’s breakfast cereals and other foods even though they are poisoned with disturbingly high levels of glyphosate, the cancer-causing key ingredient in the weedkiller RoundupThe Environmental Working Group (EWG) recently conducted a new round of tests and found the weedkiller, manufactured by Bayer-Monsanto, in all 21 oat-based snacks and cereals that it tested. According to the report, all but four of them contained levels higher than what scientists consider safe for children.

Bloomberg: Roundup’s Risks Could Go Well Beyond Cancer

by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

Chemicals giant Bay AG is seething after a jury recently awarded $2 billion in damages to a couple after it was ruled the toxic herbicide Roundup (manufactured by Bayer subsidiary Monsanto Co.) led to their cancer diagnoses. Bayer probably won’t pay out the full $2 billion, but with more than 10,000 additional cases pending, this is obviously a concern for Bayer investors, as well as the farmers who faithfully rely on Roundup because they believe it is a safe and cost effective way to control weeds.
