Roundup, Glyphosate May Yield Food as a Poison


Dr. Mercola reported in one of his articles, “In 2009, a French court found Monsanto guilty of lying; falsely advertising its Roundup herbicide as "biodegradable," "environmentally friendly" and claiming it "left the soil clean.
We're now starting to understand just how false such statements are. For example, last summer, a groundbreaking study revealed a previously unknown mechanism of harm from glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup.
The research showed that glyphosate residues, found in most processed foods in the Western diet courtesy of GE sugar beets, corn, and soy, "enhance the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and toxins in the environment to disrupt normal body functions and induce disease.
More recently, a Norwegian study published in Food Technology found that genetically engineered (GE) soy contains high levels of glyphosate, along with a poorer nutritional profile, leading the researchers to question its quality and safety. Evidence also suggests glyphosate may be a key player in Argentina's growing health problems, where birth defects and cancer rates have skyrocketed among GE corn and soy farming communities.”
 When we eat processed foods we are being exposed to toxic contamination from GMO corn and soy etc.  The same goes for meats from animals raised as soy and corn. As noted in the featured article by Rodale News.  "That herbicide-laced soy winds up in thousands of nonorganic packaged foods and in animal feed for livestock like pigs, cows, chickens, and turkeys. Why is this happening? Genetically engineered crops are manipulated in a way that could never occur in nature so plants like corn, soy, canola, cotton, and sugar beets can withstand high doses of glyphosate-containing herbicides that would normally kill them. The result?  Roundup in food that people and farm animals eat."
It is important to understand that glyphosate contamination is systemic and affects every part of the plant and every part of anything or anyone that consumes the plant.  It is not something you can wash off like topical residues.
A Norwegian study investigated contamination levels and nutritional contents of three varieties of Iowa-grown soybeans:  Roundup Ready soybeans; non-GE, conventional soybeans grown using Roundup herbicide; and organic soybeans, grown without agricultural chemicals.  On average GE soy contained 11.9 parts per million (ppm) of glyphosate. The highest residue level found was 20.1 ppm. No residues of either kind were found in the conventional non-GE and organic varieties. Similar results were found in a 2012 nutritional analysis of GE corn, which was found to contain 13 ppm of glyphosate, compared to none in non-GMO corn.  It is calculated Americans eat an average of 193 pounds of genetically engineered foods each year.  Norwegian researchers also point out that the potential toxicity of Roundup has likely been vastly underestimated, as toxicity cannot be attributed solely to the active ingredient, glyphosate.

They also suspect that Roundup might cause miscarriages and abnormal fetal development by interfering with hormone production.   It is reported that problems have skyrocketed in Argentina, following the introduction of GE soy. A toxic combination of Roundup and fertilizers has also been blamed for tens of thousands of deaths among farmers in Sri Lanka, India, and Central America's Pacific coastline (El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica).
 Argentina has become one of the world's largest producers and exporters of GE soy and corn.  At the same time the country has experienced an explosion of miscarriages, fertility problems, and abnormal fetal development. In the province of Chaco, birth defects have quadrupled in the decade following the introduction of GE crops.
Many feel the biotech movement of food has turned it into a poison. Glyphosate, which we already stated, systemically contaminates the plant and cannot be washed off, has a number of devastating biological effects on all that eat them.
It causes nutritional deficiencies, interrupts biosynthesis of essential amino acids, disrupts normal intestinal flora, raises the levels of formaldehyde in the food itself, impairs sulfate transport and sulfur metabolism, creates excess ammonia, yields inflammation etc.
Some researchers now believe glyphosate may very well be one of the most important factors in the development of a wide variety of modern diseases and conditions.
Russia v. Monsanto, The Super Fight of the Century »
by Long Island Attorney Paul A. Lauto, Esq.
Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russia have raised the bar to new record heights in the fight against GMO’s.  While Americans fight amongst themselves in an environment of greed and profit, Russia is going for a bill, which if passed, will criminalize GMO related activities equating same to terrorist acts. 
The bill would impose criminal liability on those who produce, sell or distribute GMO’s.  In addition, the bill also provides fines for concealing or deliberately distorting information about the environmental impact of GMO’s.  Co-Author of the bill, Kirill Cherkasov, reportedly maintains that the consequences of GMO’s can be greater than that of a terrorist act, “And punishment should be proportionate to the crime.”
Noteworthy is that in Russia, a terrorist act is punishable with a jail sentence of 15 years to life. 

We must do our best not to eat GMO foods and seek legislation to prevent them in our country.  Sherry Rogers, MD states there is no way the human body can digest, assimilate and utilize GMO products.  I hate to refer to them as foods at all.
Yours in Health and Wellness,
