Houston, We Have a Glyphosate Problem

By Makia Freeman

We all have a massive glyphosate problem on our hands, even if you have eaten 100% organic food all your life. The pesticide chemical glyphosate, Monsanto’s gift to mankind, is totally out of control – not just in the US, but also in Europe, Australia and many other nations that use it. Glyphosate is almost constantly in the news, as study after study reveal just how widespread, toxic and carcinogenic it is. It’s the most used pesticide in the world. Meanwhile, the US, EU, UN and others all argue over how this lethal chemical killer should be classified and labeled – despite the fact it’s showing up in people’s urine, breast milk and blood (yes – even those avoiding GMOs), and despite the fact that it has been found to be, in the words of an MIT scientist, “the most destructive chemical in our environment.” Although glyphosate used to be the patented chemical solely belonging to Monsanto and used in its Roundup formula, it is now used by other Big Biotech corporate multinationals such as Dow in their Durango pesticide formula. Now, with the NWO corporatocracy trying to push through the TTIP in secret, backroom deals are being made (such as Big Pharma company Bayer trying to buy out Big Biotech company Monsanto) that could spread glyphosate even further. When is the world going to wake up and acknowledge the uncontrolled glyphosate problem we face?
How Glyphosate Kills Plants – And You

Glyphosate is such an effective killer because it gets into plants and prevents them from taking up their normal nutrients – thus starving them to death. Glyphosate depletes micronutrients (such as calcium, zinc, magnesium, sulfur and cobalt, just to name a few) which are essential for health in plant and animal organisms. Specifically, glyphosate interferes with the shikimate pathway, a metabolic function in plants which allows them to create essential amino acids or proteins. Without this pathway functioning properly, the plant cannot survive.

Although animals and humans don’t have a shikimate pathway, here comes the glyphosate problem: the bacteria in our gut (microbiome or microbiota) do have this pathway, and we are reliant upon this microbiome in our gut for our health, immunity and our “second brain.” When we allow glyphosate to infiltrate our system, it destroys our gut and subsequently our immune system.

snip

Last year in 2015, Dr. Anthony Samsel and Dr. Stefanie Seneff analyzed 15,000 pages of scientific documents on Monsanto’s glyphosate research. Their conclusion was that Monsanto’s claims of safety were entirely false. Monsanto knew they had a glyphosate problem, that glyphosate was responsible for a variety of organ failures and cancers, but hid and distorted the data to protect its profit. As Justin Gardner writes in Newly Unsealed Documents Reveal EPA & Monsanto Always Knew Roundup Was Deadly Toxic:

According to Samsel, Monsanto intentionally corrupted animal studies by using animals that were already sick with cancer and organ failures as controls. Based on the metrics used in these studies, this made those animals exposed to glyphosate appear no more afflicted than the control animals because all of the animals ended up getting sick.

75. So why are non-subsidized foods more expensive when they are organic?

Things like lettuce, spinach, oranges, tomatoes, and lots of other things aren't subsidized, yet the organic versions are considerably more expensive. So why is that?

3. The overuse of pesticides herbacides and insecticides kills the soil

balance of microorganisms just as the overuse of antibiotics kills the balance of flora in the intestines. These super corporations' hunger for profits are killing the Earth from the ground up. And dead Earth does not hold water, which changes weather patterns.

The soil is a living organism and should contain a diverse array of life forms. I read somewhere that for every 1 pest insect in a balanced ecosystem there will be 1700 beneficial ones. This concept applies to our internal bacteria too, we need beneficial bacteria to kill off the harmful ones.

9. Glyphosate is only 40% of Roundup - 60% other toxic chemicals



"A study done by Monroe on Vision, a glyphosate product by Monsanto, revealed that it contained 1,4-dioxane at a level of 350 ppm.
“The current Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) permissible exposure limit (PEL) for dioxane is 100 ppm.”


((over OSHA limits - where the hell is the FDA?))

((Also Roundup has POEA - more highly toxic than glyphosate))

In the case of herbicides like Roundup that contain glyphosate as the main active compound and are applied on genetically engineered plants, the German authorities have taken action to prevent risks to human health. Very often these herbicides are mixed with so called POEA, polyoxyethylene alkylamine, to make the herbicide glyphosate more efficient. Meanwhile POEA are now known to be more highly toxic than glyphosate. According to the German Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL), POEA may be transferred to consumers from feed and animal-derived products. Therefore, German farmers have been advised not to use these herbicide sprays in the cultivation of plants used in feed production. However, there were no intensified controls or measures taken in regard to feed imports such as genetically engineered soy.

17. Actually you are wrong - 59 % of Roundup is POEA usually contaminated with dioxane

What's Wrong With Roundup?

Product: ROUNDUP
Active ingredient: GLYPHOSATE 41%
Type: HERBICIDE, (Systemic)
Other ingredients: 59% includes polyethoxethyleneamine (POEA) and isopropylamine (amount undisclosed); identity of remaining ingredients withheld by manufacture as trade secrets.
Mode of Action: Inhibits enzymatic activity necessary for aromatic amino acid biosynthesis, a process specific to plants. Other enzyme systems in plants and animals not specific to this biosynthetic pathway are affected by glyphosate. (Heitanen et. al. 1983)

20. Not according to Scientific American - it's DEADLY TO HUMAN CELLS

Weed-Whacking Herbicide Proves DEADLY to HUMAN CELLS
Used in gardens, farms, and parks around the world, the weed killer Roundup contains an ingredient that can suffocate human cells in a laboratory, researchers say


One specific inert ingredient, polyethoxylated tallowamine, or POEA, was MORE DEADLY to human embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells than the herbicide itself – a finding the researchers call “astonishing.”


“This clearly confirms that the [inert ingredients] in Roundup formulations are not inert,” wrote the study authors from France’s University of Caen. “Moreover, the proprietary mixtures available on the market could cause cell damage and even death [at the] residual levels” found on Roundup-treated crops, such as soybeans, alfalfa and corn, or lawns and gardens.

The research team suspects that Roundup might cause pregnancy problems by interfering with hormone production, possibly leading to abnormal fetal development, low birth weights or miscarriages.

26. Roundup was found in this experiment to be 125 TIMES MORE TOXIC than glyphosate

Major Pesticides Are More Toxic to Human Cells Than Their Declared Active Principles

It is commonly believed that Roundup is among the safest pesticides. This idea is spread by manufacturers, mostly in the reviews they promote [39, 40], which are often cited in toxicological evaluations of glyphosate-based herbicides. However, Roundup was found in this experiment to be 125 times more toxic than glyphosate. Moreover, despite its reputation, ROUNDUP WAS BY FAR THE MOST TOXIC AMONG THE HERBICIDES and insecticides tested. This inconsistency between scientific fact and industrial claim may be attributed to huge economic interests, which have been found to falsify health risk assessments and delay health policy decisions .

One surfactant in particular is drawing heavy criticism. POEA (polyethoxylated tallow amine) is likely very toxic to humans, animals and the environment. German authorities have taken their own protective action against this chemical, but the EU has failed to take any action whatsoever.

58. Even though it's completely, and utterly, off-topic,

and that I know the alerter is likely reading this, they need to see the following:

fuck (v.)
until recently a difficult word to trace, in part because it was taboo to the editors of the original OED when the "F" volume was compiled, 1893-97. Written form only attested from early 16c. OED 2nd edition cites 1503, in the form fukkit; earliest appearance of current spelling is 1535 -- "Bischops ... may fuck thair fill and be vnmaryit" (Sir David Lyndesay, "Ane Satyre of the Thrie Estaits"), but presumably it is a much more ancient word than that, simply one that wasn't written in the kind of texts that have survived from O.E. and M.E. Buck cites proper name John le Fucker from 1278. The word apparently is hinted at in a scurrilous 15c. poem, titled "Flen flyys," written in bastard Latin and M.E. The relevant line reads:

Non sunt in celi
quia fuccant uuiuys of heli


"They (the monks) are not in heaven because they fuck the wives of (the town of) Ely." Fuccant is pseudo-Latin, and in the original it is written in cipher. The earliest examples of the word otherwise are from Scottish, which suggests a Scandinavian origin, perhaps from a word akin to Norwegian dialectal fukka "copulate," or Swedish dialectal focka "copulate, strike, push," and fock "penis." Another theory traces it to M.E. fyke, fike "move restlessly, fidget," which also meant "dally, flirt," and probably is from a general North Sea Germanic word; cf. M.Du. fokken, Ger. ficken "fuck," earlier "make quick movements to and fro, flick," still earlier "itch, scratch;" the vulgar sense attested from 16c. This would parallel in sense the usual M.E. slang term for "have sexual intercourse," swive, from O.E. swifan "to move lightly over, sweep" (see swivel). But OED remarks these "cannot be shown to be related" to the English word. Chronology and phonology rule out Shipley's attempt to derive it from M.E. firk "to press hard, beat."

Germanic words of similar form (f + vowel + consonant) and meaning 'copulate' are numerous. One of them is G. ficken. They often have additional senses, especially 'cheat,' but their basic meaning is 'move back and forth.' ... Most probably, fuck is a borrowing from Low German and has no cognates outside Germanic. (Liberman)

French foutre and Italian fottere look like the English word but are unrelated, derived rather from L. futuere, which is perhaps from PIE base *bhau(t)- "knock, strike off," extended via a figurative use "from the sexual application of violent action" (Shipley; cf. the sexual slang use of bang, etc.). Popular and Internet derivations from acronyms (and the "pluck yew" fable) are merely ingenious trifling. The O.E. word was hæman, from ham "dwelling, home," with a sense of "take home, co-habit." Fuck was outlawed in print in England (by the Obscene Publications Act, 1857) and the U.S. (by the Comstock Act, 1873). As a noun, it dates from 1670s. The word may have been shunned in print, but it continued in conversation, especially among soldiers during WWI.

It became so common that an effective way for the soldier to express this emotion was to omit this word. Thus if a sergeant said, 'Get your ----ing rifles!' it was understood as a matter of routine. But if he said 'Get your rifles!' there was an immediate implication of urgency and danger. (John Brophy, "Songs and Slang of the British Soldier: 1914-1918," pub. 1930)

The legal barriers broke down in the 20th century, with the "Ulysses" decision (U.S., 1933) and "Lady Chatterley's Lover" (U.S., 1959; U.K., 1960). Johnson excluded the word, and fuck wasn't in a single English language dictionary from 1795 to 1965. "The Penguin Dictionary" broke the taboo in the latter year. Houghton Mifflin followed, in 1969, with "The American Heritage Dictionary," but it also published a "Clean Green" edition without the word, to assure itself access to the lucrative public high school market.

The abbreviation F (or eff) probably began as euphemistic, but by 1943 it was being used as a cuss word, too. In 1948, the publishers of "The Naked and the Dead" persuaded Norman Mailer to use the euphemism fug instead. When Mailer later was introduced to Dorothy Parker, she greeted him with, "So you're the man who can't spell 'fuck' " (The quip sometimes is attributed to Tallulah Bankhead). Hemingway used muck in "For whom the Bell Tolls" (1940). The major breakthrough in publication was James Jones' "From Here to Eternity" (1950), with 50 fucks (down from 258 in the original manuscript). Egyptian legal agreements from the 23rd Dynasty (749-21 B.C.E.) frequently include the phrase, "If you do not obey this decree, may a donkey copulate with you!" (Reinhold Aman, "Maledicta," Summer 1977). Fuck-all "nothing" first recorded 1960.

Verbal phrase fuck up "to ruin, spoil, destroy" first attested c.1916. A widespread group of Slavic words (cf. Pol. pierdoli?) can mean both "fornicate" and "make a mistake." Fuck off attested from 1929; as a command to depart, by 1944. Flying fuck originally meant "have sex on horseback" and is first attested c.1800 in broadside ballad "New Feats of Horsemanship." For the unkillable urban legend that this word is an acronym of some sort (a fiction traceable on the Internet to 1995 but probably predating that) see here, and also here. Related: Fucked; fucking. Agent noun fucker attested from 1590s in literal sense; by 1893 as a term of abuse (or admiration).

that the levels of exposure are so low as to be nearly non-existent, and more importantly, not clinically significant. The dose makes the poison, and frankly there are chemicals I ingest daily that are a hell of a lot more toxic than glyphosate, such as caffeine.

43. People who actually drank Roundup - and from (Republican) Forbes

A 1991 paper reported on 93 cases of exposure to RoundUp in China. Eighty of the 93 patients intentionally ingested RoundUp at its 41% concentration (home gardeners use a much weaker 1% concentration). Only seven of them died. But 66% had damage to their gastrointestinal tract and 43% had sore throats.In the seven cases that were fatal, the average amount of weed killer ingested was 184 milliliters (about .7 cups) with the highest dose at about 500 mL, or about 2 cups. A 2004 toxicology review says that damage usually occurs when drinking more than 85 mL – just a third of a cup. This 62-year-old man was saved using hemodialysis after drinking a whole bottle of RoundUp, and this 37-year-old died after drinking 500 mL.So again, don’t drink a quart of RoundUp, and I’m glad Moore (who is not clearly identified in the clip) didn’t. But this has absolutely nothing to do with the argument Moore and the French journalist were having: whether or not RoundUp causes cancer. A World Health Organization panel says it “probably” does, in sufficient doses; human data link it to lymphoma and lung cancer. Monsanto has angrily taken issue with this statement.

5 of your first 6 links are all from the same source, none of which articulate any risk associated with if they even mention glyphosate at all. The remaining link doesn't even mention glyphosate, let alone articulate any risk.

The 7th link isn't even worth clicking on. It defends Seralini pseudoscience, which isn't surprising since one of the managing editors of GMWatch is also a founding editor of GMOSeralini.

The 8th link is also obviously biased and even then doesn't articulate any risk associated with glyphosate and simply repeats all the usual talking points.

Your 9th link references a study that doesn't even mention glyphosate and is dubious at best.

So yeah, really.

Exposure to toxic chemicals threatening human reproduction and health

Date: October 1, 2015

Summary: Dramatic increases in exposure to toxic chemicals in the last four decades are threatening human reproduction and health, according to experts. Exposure to toxic environmental chemicals is linked to millions of deaths and costs billions of dollars every year, according to the authors.

FIGO proposes that physicians, midwives, and other reproductive health professionals advocate for policies to prevent exposure to toxic environmental chemicals; work to ensure a healthy food system for all; make environmental health part of health care; and champion environmental justice.

Regulation raises glyphosate levels in oilseed crops, which include sesame, flax, and soybean, from 20 parts per million (ppm), to 40 ppm. It also raises the allowable glyphosate contamination level for sweet potatoes and carrots from 0.2 ppm to 3 ppm for sweet potatoes and 5ppm for carrots, that’s 15 and 25 times the previous levels.

It is a scandal that USDA tests for hundreds of pesticide residues BUT NOT GLYPHOSATE, which is among the most widely used chemicals on our food crops,” Gary Ruskin, co-director of U.S. Right to Know, a nonprofit consumer group, said. “Consumers want to know how much glyphosate is in our food. Why won’t the USDA tell us? “

In the latest annual Pesticide Data Program report—issued Jan. 11—once again, glyphosate data IS ABSENT. Testing was done to look for residues of more than 400 different herbicides, insecticides and other pesticides on food products. But no tests reported for glyphosate.

31. I, for one, appreciate the effort to

inform us of what is in our food, air, water, soil and bodies. First of all, it's important to know, even if the levels are low, what it is and what it may do. It gives us a baseline to compare to in the future. Secondly, I think it's important to know what total exposure we have experienced. Just because we are swimming in a toxic soup doesn't mean we shouldn't try to know and understand the effects, good, bad, or indifferent, on our health of each component of that soup. Regardless of the veracity of this particular O.P.,It's a good thing to have it discussed (and cussed lol).

That's the problem, for example, claiming glyphosate is the source for everything from autism, concussions and cancer, its getting ridiculous. There are legitimate problems with modern agriculture that we should be tackling, everything from maintaining topsoil to being concerned about glyphosate resistant weeds, etc. but its buried under bullshit from the anti-science, conspiracy theory crowd.

99. If they are safe why do all these countries not want them? Answer Please!!

 TWENTY-SIX COUNTRIES BAN GMOs—WHY WON’T THE US?
The case against GMOs has strengthened steadily over the last few years, even as the industry has expanded all over the world.


A few years ago, there were sixteen countries that had total or partial bans on GMOs. Now there are at least twenty-six, including Switzerland, Australia, Austria, China, India, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Greece, Bulgaria, Poland, Italy, Mexico and Russia. Significant restrictions on GMOs exist in about sixty other countries.

Restraints on trade in GMOs based on phyto-sanitary grounds, which are allowed under the World Trade Organization, have increased. Already, American rice farmers face strict limitations on their exports to the European Union, Japan, South Korea and the Philippines, and are banned altogether from Russia and Bulgaria because unapproved genetically engineered rice “escaped” during open-field trials on GMO rice. Certain Thai exports—particularly canned fruit salads containing papaya to Germany, and sardines in soy oil to Greece and the Netherlands—were recently banned due to threat of contamination by GMOs.

Meanwhile Monsanto is far more open and honest that any of the anti-GMO hysterics.
Just ask Bill Nye the Science Guy.

86. Monsanto is a real corporation doing real harm, not a strawman at all

Any impartial person weighing the consequences of that corporation's deeds in the world has to see the pattern: a steady grasping of private profit at public expense -- including the expense of the natural world and the health of people.

90. I have it on good authority...

that glyphosate is chiefly responsible for the cataclysmic breakup of Pangaea and all of the widespread disaster that resulted.

95. Remarkable how dedicated some people are to defending a chemical and it's corporations

Why would the same people post over and over and over again
to argue on behalf of a chemical and it's corporate parent?

Such devotion reeks of a spectacularly strange kind of love.
