Study shows 99.6% of Germans tainted by toxic glyphosate (GMO handmaiden)

The toxic herbicide glyphosate can enter the body through food or drinking water.

A new study shows that the majority of Germans have been contaminated by the compound.

(Glyphosate is used on over 80% of GMO crops. Scientists are finding it in beer, tampons, and a wide range of other products. It's everywhere. Although this study was done in Germany, it is highly likely Americans are being contaminated by this toxin – handmaiden to the GMO industry - at a similarly high rate).

"A worrying three-quarters of the German population have in fact been contaminated by the controversial herbicide, according to a study carried out by the Heinrich Böll Foundation.

"The report analysed glyphosate residue in urine and it concluded that 75% of the target group displayed levels that were five times higher than the legal limit of drinking water. A third of the population even showed levels that were between ten and 42 times higher than what is normally permissible.

"Glyphosate residue was recorded in 99.6% of the 2,009 people monitored by the study. The most significant values were found in children aged from zero to nine and adolescents aged 10 to 19, particularly those individuals raised on farms..."

8. It is pretty awful stuff.

But if the point of the image is to make you think about what you're eating, then it is decidedly off-message. The correlation between neurotoxic pesticides and PD is observed primarily in those who work directly with these chemicals (i.e., farmers) and people living in contaminated rural areas.

Eating a salad probably isn't going to give you PD.

37. And physician researchers without a strong statistical and computer background

are missing key correlations.

Computer scientists are a key part of epidemiological teams.

http://www.sciencemag.org/careers/2004/02/computational-and-mathematical-epidemiology

Methods of mathematics and computer science have become important tools in analyzing the spread and control of infectious diseases. Partnerships among computer scientists, mathematicians, epidemiologists, public health experts, and biologists are increasingly important in the defense against disease. The field of computational and mathematical epidemiology is giving rise to many new and interesting career opportunities. This article will discuss the field, relevant mathematical methods, career opportunities, and related programs at the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) at Rutgers University.

39. The problem is the studies fail to provide a mechanism of action...

 

because the people leading the study aren't biologists, so don't know what they are talking about.

Is glyphosate genotoxic? If so, how?

Is glyphosate neurotoxic? If so, how?

Demonstrate how this particular molecule can damage genes or brains, cross the blood-brain barrier, or cause whatever, and then, maybe, biologists would be interested. In addition, the correlations found are disputed themselves, and may be an example of cognitive bias.

41. Without computer scientists and epidemiologists,

biologists often won't know how to target their research.

Because of the computer scientists' work on glyphosphate and Roundup, other researchers are studying the mechanism of action, and are producing studies that are yielding important results.

For example:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1257596/

Abstract
Roundup is a glyphosate-based herbicide used worldwide, including on most genetically modified plants that have been designed to tolerate it. Its residues may thus enter the food chain, and glyphosate is found as a contaminant in rivers. Some agricultural workers using glyphosate have pregnancy problems, but its mechanism of action in mammals is questioned. Here we show that glyphosate is toxic to human placental JEG3 cells within 18 hr with concentrations lower than those found with agricultural use, and this effect increases with concentration and time or in the presence of Roundup adjuvants. Surprisingly, Roundup is always more toxic than its active ingredient. We tested the effects of glyphosate and Roundup at lower nontoxic concentrations on aromatase, the enzyme responsible for estrogen synthesis. The glyphosate-based herbicide disrupts aromatase activity and mRNA levels and interacts with the active site of the purified enzyme, but the effects of glyphosate are facilitated by the Roundup formulation in microsomes or in cell culture. We conclude that endocrine and toxic effects of Roundup, not just glyphosate, can be observed in mammals. We suggest that the presence of Roundup adjuvants enhances glyphosate bioavailability and/or bioaccumulation.

In fact, more than that, it demonstrates that you are ignorant of biology. Do you even know what the hell "pork genes" are? Can you identify them, or what makes them pork? No, of course not, its a fucking nonsensical statement, yet here you are, more interested in putting your ideology above even the most basic of facts about genetics and biology.

So instead, you want to spread your ignorance by purposefully misrepresenting the technology and science in general, again, for ideological reasons.

4. Unfortunately I think, untreated, it has now devolved into psychopathy.

Research suggests that, “psychopaths are a stable proportion of any population, can be from any segment of society, may constitute a distinct taxonomical class forged by frequency-dependent natural selection, and that the muting of the social emotions is the proximate mechanism that enables psychopaths to pursue their self-centered goals without felling the pangs of guilt. Sociopaths are more the products of adverse environmental experiences that affect autonomic nervous system and neurological development that may lead to physiological responses similar to those of psychopaths. Antisocial personality disorder is a legal/clinical label that may be applied to both psychopaths and sociopaths” (Walsh & Wu, 2008).


...other differences between psychopathy and sociopathy, aside from origin, have been cited. The capacity to feel attachment and empathy towards another and to feel guilt and shame after doing something wrong is not associated with psychopathy; however it is suggested that sociopaths can emotionally attach to others, and feel badly when they hurt those individuals that they are attached to. The sociopath will still lack empathy and attachment toward the greater society and will not feel guilt in harming a stranger, or rebelling against laws, but does not lack empathy entirely, as is typical with the psychopath.


Perhaps one can argue that republicons are of the realm of the psychopathic and Democrats are of the realm of the sociopathic. I no longer argue this.

7. It's not even GMO that's the thing people don't get. Hey, even the list in the OP focuses on GMO

It's on plenty of non GMO now . Plenty of reasons to avoid many GMO but if you don't want Roundup in your diet, it is beyond that list, although that is a good start

For instance avoid GMO beets most likely because you want to avoid glyphosate but did u know they are starting to use it on cane sugar?

Also one of the biggest uses is on wheat right before harvest .

There are plenty of articles on glyphosate in our diet but I would never link on this site so look on your own if you don't like the guide above

Yes it costs more to produce organic because it is on a smaller scale from growing, through transportation and marketing. Take a look at the organic process to find out how different it really is from industrialized chemical farming. One of the best operations is near my house and it is quite different than a Con-Agra site.

15. So their urine would be illegal as drinking water?

"The report analysed glyphosate residue in urine and it concluded that 75% of the target group displayed levels that were five times higher than the legal limit of drinking water."

Grammar. How does it work again?

33. How is someone zero years old?

 

They mean from one month old to 9 years? I don't think a person can be zero years old.

47. More shit research

Notice how the "study" was conveniently left out of the link?

Probably because the publisher is listed on Beall's list for producing complete shit masquerading as science.

49. So this is two-years-old, but being promoted as if it's new and alarming information?

Hmm.

51. Nope. You are wrong again, as usual. It's being promoted as important information.

You can check out the scientific difference between "new" and "important" at this

53. So you got caught promoting something old, and unreliable, and you double down?



And claiming others are wrong when they're right is not really cool at all.

61. It's not as if High Quality Junk Science comes out every day

At some point it has to be recycled in hopes that people will forget the last round of debunking.

69. That does not appear to be it, the 'study' described in the OP really doesn't

match the content at the link. As far as I can find, this new document isn't published anywhere--not even in a fake journal--but seems just to be described in a variety of places, perhaps all based on a press release or similar from this Heinrich Böll Foundation. (If it is publicly available, I'm guessing it's in German and buried somewhere at that foundation website)...

70. So where is the "study" in the OP published?

Even the person who posted the OP seems to think this is the " study" in question.

78. The article in the OP is pretty shitty

Besides being obviously one-sided and biased, it doesn't give you the name, a link, or anything else besides the author and the subject to identify the study. The author and the subject exactly matches the one provided. Even if there is another study, and I'm not convinced there is, this one tells you all you need to know about the author. Even if you ignore the fact that it's published in a predatory pay-to-play journal which is telling enough, a quick glance at the "study" shows that the author cites her own work along with twice citing widely discredited Seralini.

80. I agree: the research(er) is unreliable, the study you linked is gibberish, and the

article cited by the OP is deficient at best. All I'm saying is that the new study, if it exists, is not the same as the old one...

The bill replacing state regulation with a federal one saying the food companies don't have to say they are gmo died yesterday.

79. Always surprising to see how many ENTITIES support toxic glorp in the human body - passionately

DU has way more hotly passionate supporters of Toxic Glorp infesting the human body than just about anywhere on the planet, outside Luisiana'a Chemical Corridor. Isn't that just the funniest thing?
