Potential for biological harm skyrockets when this significantly different pesticide slips through regulatory toxin safety assessments by government authorities. To find out more, click link.
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup, also patented as an antibiotic in addition to an herbicide. It was originally used as a boiler descaler to remove minerals from heating elements. With EPA dysfunctional, we have to seek good data from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, which Moms Across America has made available to us. For those unaware of American use in Chemical Industrial farming, Glyphosate is often used as a crop ripener or desiccant to facilitate harvesting, leaving a residue on affected produce that travels to your dining table.
“These non-organic foods are highly contaminated with this carcinogen, neurotoxin, endocrine disruptor, and antibiotic that causes liver disease because glyphosate herbicides are often sprayed as a drying agent on grains, beans and legume crops.” To read more, click the link below compiled by Tony Mitra: http://www.momsacrossamerica.com/top_ten_foods_to_avoid_in_america
CORNELL UNIVERSITY SUBSTITUTING AS MONSANTO PR- What has happened to Cornell’s storied land grant university and reputation???? Scientific integrity, Students, Farmers, Innocent People, Animals around the world suffering from PR papers substituting for science. Not to mention chemical contamination of drinking water, soils, much more!
States leading the way to get the truth on pesticides, especially with captured federal government authorities on newest Roundup- Dicamba- 2,4D pesticides. Don’t be fooled! This deception and misinformation has been occurring under both Democrat and Republican administrations, much to the detriment of Americans’ health, the health of the food supply and ecosystems. Industry corruption tentacles have global reach – Now is the time for the federal government to catch up and level to the American people about why health care costs are escalating so fast and neighboring organic and nonGMO farm crops, and even your family fruit trees and vegetable patches are being contaminated. US government will have to change its tune if it wants to regain agricultural leadership.
Herbicide approvals without data?!$$$!???????? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/5988dd73e4b030f0e267c6cd
This new certification is great news for food manufacturers who want to certify their food with this important quality attribute: food free from Glyphosate residues! Consumers will benefit as well because organic and nonGMO Verified Project labels do not necessarily mean foods are Glyphosate or Roundup-free. Glyphosate is the most used and abused herbicide in history! Roundup is a pesticide toxin sprayed on GMO crops as part of the pesticide-dependent GMO crop system, but many people are unaware it is often used as a pre-harvest crop ripener on nonGMO crops. In this application, it essentially kills the plant to facilitate harvesting of many conventional crops like beans, peas, chick peas, and other plants. The Glyphosate toxin remains on the food part of the plant and accumulates on foods, lacking Federal government review or limits on residue accumulation from multiple sprays. So many people have no idea they are regularly ingesting a pesticide toxin (which has also been patented by Monsanto as an antibiotic) at their dining tables. Over time, the sublethal chemical doses of Glyphosate can lead to a myriad of health problems.
