Despite Whining By Monsanto, Roundup DOES Cause Cancer … and Many Other Diseases

The World Health Organization is right when it announced recently that Roundup weedkiller – also known as “glyphosate” – probably causes cancer.

In response, Monsanto has been whining that the WHO is wrong.

But Reuters notes:

“There are a number of independent, published manuscripts that clearly indicate that glyphosate … can promote cancer and tumor growth,” said Dave Schubert, head of the cellular neurobiology laboratory at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California. “It should be banned.”

The Salk Institute is one of the world’s top neuroscience facilities:

In 2004, the Times Higher Education Supplement ranked Salk as the world’s top biomedicine research institute, and in 2009 it was ranked number one globally by ScienceWatch in the neuroscience and behavior areas.

Indeed, Roundup has been linked with numerous diseases, including autism, dementia, thyroid and bladder cancer,  kidney failure, bowel and intestinal disease, high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes.

Roundup has been found in 75% of air and water tested, and in virtually all sanitary cotton products.

And crops are drenched in Roundup right before harvest … meaning that we get alot of it in our food.

And yet the EPA recently raised the allowable amount of glyphosate by 3,000% … pretending that it won’t have adverse health effects.

And EPA uses Monsanto’s own biased research – largely based on outdated studies from the 197os – to pretend that Roundup is safe. (Monsanto studies from the 1970s and 1980s – shared with the EPA at the time – allegedly showed that Roundup was toxic.)

We should instead ban the poison

    The frightening and disgusting part of this story is that the EPA (Enabling Poisoners Agency) is — surprise! — on the wrong side and our information is coming from Europe. Another American government agency captured by the Evil Empire. Just like our country.

      and those cocksuckers would want that shit back in our EU country too through TTIP…I hope people are not that stupid and won’t buy the shit…boycott is the last resort of the peasants if the government regulations fail

        Your anger at this information is perplexing to me; you use the term ‘cocksuckers’ to describe these people who are poisoners and corrupt. To poison people is to murder people. Please reconsider your opinion of murderers compared to those who merely engage in pleasurable activity.
        (You might also ‘get lucky’ by refusing to insult both men and women (your choice, yeh?) who engage in simple sexual pleasures. There are many many many things worse than sucking a penis.

          If their is any suspicion about roundup its use should be stopped immiediatley by precaution , but it is clear that Monsanto and politicians do not care there only concern is about profits and economies

      The ‘American Government’ is the Evil Empire. The psychopaths running everything, whatever they are, are undeniably intent on exterminating Life on Earth. Mere crazed greed cannot explain the fanatic determination to poison and destroy that grips these metastases of pure Evil.

  • business ethics

    in pre-Civil War New Orleans the Monsantos were major slave-dealers. A family tradition of business ethics in the making.

    The fact that glyphosate is a deadly poison to animal life has been ignored, of course, profits being God. But preparations like Roundup are even worse because of the toxic adjuvants added. And isn’t the ‘Enviropnmental’ ‘Protection?’ Agency a joy to behold, an organisation now utterly corrupted by money power.

    Why no mention of this Hillary, Bernie, Ben, Marco, Trump…c’mon now.

    • Michael Daush

      Trump brought up vaccines in a debate and criticized Monsanto just the other day.
      From the others……crickets.

  • Jerry Hamilton

    While I understand that the government gets enormous back handers to insist you eat GMO’s….
    It is not very patriotic. Do they not like you?

  • June 12, 2015 Aluminum, Fluoride, and Glyphosate—A Toxic Trifecta Implicated in Autism and Alzheimer’s Disease By Dr. Mercola

    Aluminum is a known neurotoxin, and according to Professor Christopher Exley of Keele University, aluminum-containing products are likely fueling the rise in Alzheimer’s disease. In an article published in the journal Frontiers in Neurology, he writes: “We are all accumulating a known neurotoxin in our brain from our conception to our death. The presence of aluminium in the human brain should be a red flag alerting us all to the potential dangers of the aluminium age.How do we know that Alzheimer’s disease is not the manifestation of chronic aluminium toxicity in humans?”

    People with aluminum toxicity display many of the same symptoms as those with dementia, Parkinson’s, ADHD, autism, and other neurological diseases, and mounting evidence suggests aluminum may play a significant role in the development of those (and other) diseases.
