Sri Lanka’s New President Puts Immediate Ban on Glyphosate

Bad Day for Monsanto

German states call for ban on household pesticide (Glyphosate)

After reevaluating the most widely used pesticide in Germany and worldwide, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) cancer researchers have categorised Glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans”.

In a resolution on Friday (8 May), Germany’s state ministers called for “the supply to and use by private persons to be banned for precautionary reasons”. In addition, the politicians argue that Glyphosate should be prohibited for uses close to consumers.

Farmers are watering your food with fracking chemicals

Industrial scale poisoning is now the norm. Maybe we could just change the nation’s name to Evil Incorporated?

They found methylene chloride aka dichloromethane at 56 parts per billion. The EPA’s safe drinking water level is 5 ppb.

This anti-fracking movie was passable, but conventional and obvious.  It commits the sin of repeatedly talking about the issue.  Battles of words are a bit light on the hard evidence.  With exposition-heavy issue films, many viewers are going to be turned off, and Promised Land’s ratings hover near the 50% mark – perhaps a glass half full?

The good thing about the movie is that it is the first to tackle the hydro-fracking pollution in a widely-released drama.  The crux of the problem is clear, but the contrived plot created around it is simplistic at times.

The  abomination of “RoundUp Ready” by Monsanto, among others, is explained in great technical detail by Dr. Don Huber, agricultural scientist and expert in microbial ecology, who’s convinced that Monsanto’s genetically engineered “RoundUp Ready” crops are responsible for a new micro-monster that’s causing an outbreak of new plant, animal and human diseases.

Bottom line, Glyphosate, an extremely powerful herbicide collects in the plants and animals and in you as well.  It continues its very toxic business of interfering with enzymes and mutating bacteria including the useful bacteria in digestive tracts.  Animal studies show unhealthy young who were fed these products and lots of abortions in the animals studied.  Reduced fertility is also an epidemic with animals fed Glyphosate.  Tiny doses of this malevolent chemical can have great effects on plants and animals.

Dr. Huber also notes the rigging of the system and the use of patent claims to stop research into GMO foods.

From the Youtube page:

“Please read or watch (part1 & part 2) Dr. Mercola’s interview with Dr. Huber and then write USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack, as Dr. Huber has, and urge him to place a moratorium on Monsanto’s RoundUp Ready crops until scientists learn more about this deadly micro-monster.
