Americans are so fucking stupid they probably deserve this. Everything wrong with America is being done to them by other Americans, not foreign invaders, not Russians, not immigrants: all-American plutocrats in suits.

 

EPA is now allowing asbestos back into manufacturing

Whistleblower: EPA Officials Covered Up Toxic Fracking Emissions for Years
“…the very inventor of the Bacharach Hi-Flow Sampler, an engineer named Touché Howard, had been attempting to blow the whistle for years…”

 

There are no conspiracies in America, of course.

“Dr. David Allen, then-head of EPA’s Science Advisory Board, has led an ongoing, three-year effort to cover up underreporting of the primary device, the Bacharach Hi-Flow Sampler, and a second device used to measure gas releases from equipment across the natural gas industry. Allen is also on the faculty of the University of Texas at Austin, where he has been funded by the oil and gas industries for years.”

Liver and kidney damage following chronic ultra-low dose Roundup exposure

To address this issue, a 2-year study in rats administering 0.1 ppb Roundup (50 ng/L glyphosate equivalent) via drinking water (giving a daily intake of 4 ng/kg bw/day of glyphosate) was conducted. A marked increased incidence of anatomorphological and blood/urine biochemical changes was indicative of liver and kidney structure and functional pathology.

Different Kind of GMO is Headed to Supermarket Shelves

Support Organic farmers.

The  Environmental Protection Agency is currently reviewing concerns about RNAi technology raised by several research papers. But the agency’s authority to regulate transgenic crops is limited (See inset). Meanwhile, several other RNAi-altered fruits and vegetables, including non-bruising potatoes, called Innate Potato, and a new kind of pest-resistant corn, are on their way to supermarket shelves.

While the technology has indeed been used in many pharmaceutical products, in the past several years several food crops utilizing RNAi too, have been developed. The most troubling among these are the ones developed for pest control.

Toxins in the food.

That’s the point.

That’s the selling point — to farmers — not to you, the actual end-user. You’re not allowed to know.

If you don’t like the idea of corporate profiteers ramming their experimental foods down your throat, and the throats of your loved ones, then you’re not alone.

Fascism is corporatism, according to none other than Benito Mussolini. He had a handle on what fascism is. Better understanding than you do, anyway.

Here is another example of fascism here in the US. Toxic chemical manufacturers are allowed to “report” the risks themselves (lie about).

Because Homeland Security Allows Chemical Plants to Self-Report Toxic Releases, 44% are Wrong

The GAO report (pdf) estimated that more than 2,700 of the estimated 6,400 facilities, or 44%, misreported the Distance of Concern.

Glyphosate is “definitely genotoxic”, says Prof Chris Portier, a co-author of the report by the World Health Organisation’s cancer agency, which classed glyphosate as a probable carcinogen

Prof Christopher Portier, one of the co-authors of the recent report by the World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which determined that glyphosate is a probable carcinogen, said at a scientific briefing today, “Glyphosate is definitely genotoxic. There is no doubt in my mind.”

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.
