93% of Americans have glyphosate in their bodies - UC Cal

children have the most (could be the ADD and ADHD problem - ya think?)

Nine Out of 10 Americans Tested Positive for Monsanto's Cancer-Linked Weedkiller Glyphosate
A probable human carcinogen is found in far too many foods

What makes that figure even more alarming is that many of you who sent in urine samples for testing probably eat more organic than non-organic food. Which suggests that either your organic food has been contaminated and/or you’re being exposed to glyphosate via unknown sources.

Worse yet? Children had the highest levels.

The testing, carried out by a laboratory at UC San Francisco, was the first-ever comprehensive and validated LC/MS/MS testing project to be carried out across America. According to the results, people who live in the west and mid-west tested higher than those living in other regions of the country.

Excellent documentary on Glyphosate - from Ring of Fire Website



If it is too long for you to watch, check out these :

14 minutes - pigs and glyphosate (will definitely make you think about what you are feeding your kids and pets)

18:09 minutes - glyphosates effect on gut bacteria that kills beneficial bacteria

25 minutes - Seralini and rat tumors - same study as Monsanto only did only Seralini did it for 2 years instead of 3 months and studied effect of glyphosate on all organs - not just looking for cancers - actually said tumers started at 4 months

33 minutes - glyphosate test samples of microtoxins - scary! Biological toxins - soil life declined --

and definitely check out this next one

40 minutes - Moms across America - 166 parts/billion glyphosate in breast milk

Coal Industry dying but Republicans want to keep it an issue in campaign

Farron Cousins says debates about coal are stupid - debating an energy source from 16's vs renewable energy. The coal industry is failing - not because of regulations - but because demand has fallen in half from China and India. Cousins says to transfer coal workers to a job that is not going to give them cancer.

He speaks of the republican state of Florida - tons of sun - and no renewables.





For some reason, the coal industry is playing a large role in this year’s presidential elections. Some candidates are pandering to the out-of-work coal miners, while others are proposing plans to put them back to work in the renewable energy sector. But if we learn anything from the demise of coal, it’s that the country has to kick our fossil fuel addiction, and quickly

YEA! Ring of Fire plans to go after Monsanto's Roundup big time in the next few weeks!

Mike Papantonio, America's best trial lawyer and Farron Cousins editor of the Trial Lawyers mag talk about health issues of glyphosate and Roundup. Cousins says it's almost as dangerous as DDT - just watered down a little.

If you put Roundup in your yard, within 30 minutes glyphosate is in your body. It's not just causing cancer - it's causing many other diseases - alzheimers, birth defects, breast cancer, colitius, heart disease, diabetes, ms, etc all linked through studies. "It's a chemical designed to kill living cells."

"EPA just an extension of Monsanto." Ring of Fire plans to be talking about this alot in the next few weeks because they say corporate media is not covering this.

Monsanto’s Roundup has been linked to a myriad of health issues ranging from cancers to neurological defects to infertility. Still, we’re pouring 100 million tons of this toxin into the environment every year. America’s Lawyer Mike Papantonio and Farron Cousins discuss the dangers that Monsanto is hiding from the public.

Russia wants to be the worlds top exporter of Non-Gmo and organic food

This comes at a time when countries are refusing to accept America's GMO foods


Russia—which largely opposes genetically modified food (GMOs) and is stamping out GMOs in its entire food production—wants to be world’s largest exporter of non-GMO food, according to RT

In a speech given to Russian Parliament last week, President Vladimir Putin announced his intention to be the world’s biggest supplier of “ecologically clean and high-quality food” and criticized GMO food production in western countries even though demand for organic food has soared exponentially in recent years.

“We are not only able to feed ourselves taking into account our lands, water resources—Russia is able to become the largest world supplier of healthy, ecologically clean and high-quality food which the Western producers have long lost, especially given the fact that demand for such products in the world market is steadily growing,” he said.

Putin also said that in the last decade, Russia has gone from importing half of its food to becoming a net exporter. Putin claims that Russia now makes more money from selling food than from selling weapons and fuel.

EPA removes report that glyphosate does not cause cancer from its website. " Carcinogenic or Not?"



The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) removed a report from its website where they concluded that glyphosate was “not likely to be carcinogenic to humans.” The report has been pulled offline on May 2, 2016 along with 13 other documents.

Reuter reports that the regulatory agency took down the report as well as the other documents because they were not final. In a clarificatory email, EPA explained that the 86-pages report has been published “inadvertently” and that their review of the chemical has not been finished yet. However, the report was dated Oct. 1, 2015, was labeled as “final Cancer Assessment Document”, with the word “FINAL” being clearly printed on every single page of the document. In their report, the EPA allegedly claimed that glyphosate, the ingredient found in Monsanto’s common herbicide Roundup, was “not likely to be carcinogenic to humans.”

On the other hand, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) on its latest report, classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans (Group 2A),” raising several controversies. During his recent interview on Here & Now, Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant insisted on claiming that Roundup is not carcinogen for humans. “It’s 40 years old,” he said, explaining how “virtually every year of its life it’s been under a review somewhere in the world by regulatory authorities.” Monsanto keeps claiming that the EPA’s document should be issued as an “official classification” while the regulator responded that their cancer review is not complete and that it will be peer reviewed by the end of 2016.

Levaquin, Cipro, Avelox - now linked to aortic defect - even past users

Each year, more than 20 million prescriptions are written for high-potency antibiotics that have been linked to deadly heart problems. Big Pharma has tried to keep these dangers out of the public spotlight, but as the death toll continues to climb, that’s becoming harder and harder.

A new case has emerged with Levaquin, which possibly causes permanent heart damage. America’s Lawyer, Mike Papantonio, discusses this with attorney Bryan Aylstock…

First it was peripheral neuropathy, nerve damage, tendon ruptures, etc. from these drugs - now they are linked to damage in the lining of the aorta. Researcher say they are over-prescribed for minor issues. Dr Mahyar Etminan, Univ of British Columbia : " told The New York Times that overusing these drugs is like “trying to kill a fly with an automatic weapon.”

Jury awards $55 million against Johnson & Johnson in talcum powder ovarian cancer trial

Manufacturer Johnson & Johnson has lost their second case in talcum powder-related litigation in a sign of what is to come for the company. Now that the ball has begun rolling in the litigation against Johnson & Johnson for their cancer-causing use of talcum powder, we can expect to see many more payouts from the corporate giant as it faces nearly 1,200 other similar cases.

The journey began earlier this year when Johnson & Johnson lost their first case against an Alabama woman who claimed that her daily use of talc-containing J&J product “Shower to Shower” had caused her ovarian cancer. The family of victim Jacqueline Fox was awarded a hefty $72 million in the verdict against J&J. Unfortunately, Fox’s cancer killer her before justice could be served.

Though Johnson & Johnson declared that they intended to appeal the ruling, the strong case opened the door to the thousands of others.


Mike Papantonio (Americas's best lawyer) weighed in:

“It’s very difficult to hide the truth about conduct as ugly as what we’ve seen with Johnson & Johnson in a case like this. It’s just a matter of time until they must confront the reality of where they are.”

In contrast to Clinton’s rally in New York, Sanders’ had not only attracted nearly twenty times the people, but the tens of thousands of Sanders supporters also came bearing thousands of homemade signs, puppets and don’t forget, free hugs.

Stop pipeline help or advice

I live in a rural subdivision in NM and KinderMorgan wants to put a CO2 pipeline (Lobos Pipeline) directly across my property. There are thousands of acres of ranch land and they want to go thru the only subdivision in the middle of nowhere.

It's pretty bad as they are drilling carbon dioxide gas wells from underneath a granite wash at the St Johns Fields in Arizona and transporting it across NM to Texas for fracking. A rupture or leak can be dangerous because you can't smell or see it.

My whole subdivision is getting together to oppose this and we are going to a scoping meeting Tues - anyone here have any advise/stories about their pipeline woes?
