Study Finds Almost All Sanitary Cotton Products Contaminated with Probable Carcinogen

85 percent of sanitary cotton products tested in a new study were contaminated with glyphosate, which was recently ruled a “probable carcinogen” by the World Health Organization and is the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, used worldwide.

Roundup is applied to cotton plants “when the bud is open and the glyphosate is condensed and goes straight into the product,” one of the researchers reported.

The studied products were purchased in Argentina, which receives them from Brazil, including via the US.

RT notes that “[s]cientific studies have linked the chemicals in Monsanto’s biocides [such as Agent Orange] to Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, autism and cancer.”

    Let them bury themselsves on their yachts and in their bunkers. They’ll get bored and on each other’s nerves soon enough. There’ll be blood and thunder among themselves. And if they should dare to go ashore or come out of their luxurious prison fortresses, what do they think they can expect? Maybe there’s nobody left of the 99,9 percent to be looted like in good old times. Maybe there is and they’re starving.

    Excellent work that lays it out very cleanly, we are on the edge of forever as our technology has surpassed our ability to control. When you understand what this film is talking about, you really have no excuse. When the basic staples of Life are under attack, Air, Land, Sea,then the incentive to act becomes a Life and death situation. In case you haven’t noticed, we have past that point.

    I did a Google News search and the only thing that came up about this was the article by Paul Craig Roberts quoting the RT article that (I’m guessing) broke this story. What a sad-sack press in this country that doesn’t even mention this and we find out about this in a foreign…a Russian media outlet. Congrats to their reporting but the press in this country is disgusting. The killers at Monsanto are poisoning us all especially the women and the govt is letting them get away with it….
