What is contaminating our foods, polluting our water supplies, and destroying soils health? GLYPHOSATE, best known for being the active ingredient in RoundUp, along with other so-called “inert” ingredients. Glyphosate was originally patented as a boiler descaler by Stauffer Chemical. Later after Monsanto obtained this broad spectrum biocidal chemical, it was patented as an herbicide to be paired with its GMO RoundUp Ready crops, and subsequently patented as an antibiotic by the corporation.
A further use was later recommended as a crop ripening/drying agent for food crops such as wheat, barley, lentils, peas and other nonGMO grains and legumes, leading to chemical residue to contaminate much of our food supply.. In short, Glyphosate is virtually ubiquitous in western developed agriculture, except for organic farming. And, unbeknownst to many people , they are consuming it in such quanty that it has been detected in their urine, and also in babies’ umbilical cord blood. http://www.ecowatch.com/why-is-glyphosate-sprayed-on-crops-right-before-harvest-1882187755.html
All of this has been happening under the guise of government deception, despite numerous peer-reviewed studies and evidence from around the world showing cancer, liver and kidney toxicity, and other health and ecosystem harms. The US government has been covering this up with abundant industry and special interest sponsored science. Unlike many major industrialized countries around the world, the US has taken numerous evasive actions to prevent useful consumer GMO labeling, inclusive of other crops containing Glyphosate, which has been declared a probable carcinogen by WHO. And if you explore the other pages on this site, you’ll find out toxic fallout is even worse than you can imagine, with the addition of Dicamba and 2,4-D( related to Agent Orange from Viet Nam) will be sprayed alongside Glyphosate in 2017! Find out what you can do to help protect your family and ecosystem health and act accordingly in 2017.
