12 Charts Show Connection Between Roundup and Disease

Roundup is found in 75% of air and water samples.  Many farmers drench crops with Roundup right before harvest. About 100 million pounds are applied to U.S. farms and lawns every year, according to the EPA.

Monsanto claims that Roundup is totally safe, and can be dumped on everything without problem.

Is it true?

In reality, Roundup is linked to a number of diseases. And the ingredients in Roundup are deadly to human cells.

A study from the Journal of Organic Systems includes the following 12 charts which show the correlation between Roundup (technically known as “glyphosate”) and disease:

    Fantastic study, and great find by W’s Blog. Regarding the near perfect correlation between autism and glyphosate, when I first started in the intellectual disabilities field in 1986, autism was virtually unknown. By the mid 1990s, the rate was about 1:10,000 births. Recently it was announced as approximately 1:60 births. Similarly, the rate of IBS and related digestive disorders has exploded in the last 20 years. Anecdotally, I find more people than ever complain of ‘allergy’ symptoms and breathing issues.
    This one needs to be distributed far and wide.

      Diabetes in the mother during pregnancy is a significant risk factor for autism; a 2009 meta-analysis found that gestational diabetes was associated with a twofold increased risk. A 2014 review also found that maternal diabetes was significantly associated with an increased risk of ASD.

      (wiki)

      the consumption of grains by pregnant women needs to be examined and as things stand now, should be abandoned until further notice. gestational diabetes should be a thing of the past. (from 2004!: Diet for Pregnant and Nursing Mothers)

      is the risk of autism related to the dosage of glyphosphate? gestational diabetes in the mother indicates both inappropriately high grain consumption and the presence of leaky gut syndrome. their infants should be tested for the presence of higher than normal levels of glyphosphate.

      imagine the scale of the lawsuit. the tobacco settlement? peanuts. i guess they’ll have to haul feinberg out to handle the payout, to ensure that monsanto isn’t victimized by millions of fraudulent claims.

    Title of the article is incorrect.

    Should read 12 charts show possible connection between Roundup and disease.

    For the umpteenth time, correlation does not prove causation. It certainly can be an indicator, but it proves nothing. You have to do more research to prove causation.

    This is the fundamental of science. I don’t have a dog in the roundup hunt, but I do care that science is not twisted to assume something true that is not.

    We’re just coming into the light from 10 years of nonsense around “global warming” that actual data proves does not exist – turns out it was “spun” from exactly this kind of correlation magic.

      I agree with you that correlation is not causation.

      However, you are completely wrong about climate change. 2014 is on track to be the hottest year on record. 2015 may well surpass it. Climate always changes, yes, but generally at a pace that takes millenia. What is going on now is occurring in the blink of a geologic eye.

      By the look of the “statistics” of increased autism, I’d say this is no coincidence, and there is definitely a cause(s) behind it, causing the stats/numbers to skyrocket. Some speculated a few years back that it was the lead paint in toys made in China, that was the suspected cause of autism. Others speculated it was and is still: Vaccines. Others say it’s in the food, and some say it’s in the air. Perhaps, the increase in childhood autism, is attributable to many sources and things. Wouldn’t be at all surprised, given the complete corruption that is going on in this day and age.

    And those chemical trails they are spraying on everything and everyone, by planes, certainly are NOT helping anything either. Chemical trails are not to be confused with condensation trails. As condensation trails left by planes, quickly evaporate within 20-30 seconds. However, Chemical trails left by planes do not evaporate, in fact they leave a large, wide line, that billows outward. Those are known as “chemical trails” and they contain several known toxins, such as aluminum, strontium, and barium. In short, we are being poisoned, not only the human populace, but all plant, and animal, and aqua-marine life as well. Hmmm…. I wonder who is behind all of this? Wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the EPA or Monsanto. Does anyone think for a minute, that the gooberment doesn’t know about this?
