EPA Raises Allowable Glyphosate Levels
Study: Monsanto’s Roundup Herbicide Linked to Cancer, Autism, Parkinson’s

In light of massive global protests against this poisoning of the food supply, the fascist Obama Administration has ignored the people’s valid health concerns and allowed more Round-Up contamination to enter the food supply and be ingested by pretty much the whole population.  Only Organic Certified foods and homegrown gardens are reasonably assured of being glyphosate free.

This is a clear and present danger to the entire nation.  This abomination should be stopped immediately,like so many other of the official Washington policies that are in direct opposition to the interests of the public.

This is what an ignorant, distracted citizenry invites in.

NY TIMES:

“Vast stretches of Texas farmland lying over the aquifer no longer support irrigation. In west-central Kansas, up to a fifth of the irrigated farmland along a 100-mile swath of the aquifer has already gone dry. In many other places, there no longer is enough water to supply farmers’ peak needs during Kansas’ scorching summers.

And when the groundwater runs out, it is gone for good. Refilling the aquifer would require hundreds, if not thousands, of years of rains.

…But across the rolling plains and tarmac-flat farmland near the Kansas-Colorado border, the effects of depletion are evident everywhere. Highway bridges span arid stream beds. Most of the creeks and rivers that once veined the land have dried up as 60 years of pumping have pulled groundwater levels down by scores and even hundreds of feet.”

 

Hey, go pop out another 10 kids.  No problems.

None of this takes into account the near future pollution of the good aquifers by gas drilling / hydrofracking.  We’re on a great path.

Glyphosate’s Suppression of Cytochrome P450 Enzymes and Amino Acid Biosynthesis by the Gut Microbiome: Pathways to Modern Diseases

Anthony Samsel 1 and Stephanie Seneff 

New review of hundreds of studies of RoundUp and its toxic ingredient glyphosate adds more scientific support to ban this product and reverse the tsunami of inferior genetically modified food like substances.

ECOWATCH explains the findings:

“Glyphosate impairs the cytochrome P450 (CYP) gene pathway, which creates enzymes that help to form and also break down molecules in cells. There are myriad important CYP enzymes, including aromatase (the enzyme that converts androgen into estrogen) and 21-Hydroxylase, which creates cortisol (stress hormone) and aldosterone (regulates blood pressure). One function of these CYP enzymes is also to detoxify xenobiotics, which are foreign chemicals like drugs, carcinogens or pesticides. Glyphosate inhibits these CYP enzymes, which has rippling effects throughout our body.”

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.
