We're the 'Weeds' for Monsanto Roundup Weed Killer

""Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to kill you." Such a comment might be applied to the most widely used weed-killers on Earth–Monsanto's patented Roundup based on the systemic herbicide, Glyphosate. Earlier this year the authoritative International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World health Organisation (WHO) declared that glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans. Scientific studies have confirmed it. Now a new, peer-reviewed scientific study over a two-year life span of test rats, clearly demonstrates that consumption of even tiny amounts of Roundup or other glyphosate-containing weed killers produces severe liver and kidney damage and in some cases premature death.

The well-meaning faceless bureaucrats over at the supra-national EU Commission in Brussels refuse to even seriously consider such studies and classify as "secret" a German government report from this past January because it likely would show Monsanto's dirty paw prints. All this does is once more show the criminal conspiracy by Monsanto, the world's leading purveyor of Genetically Modified Organisms or GMO plants to use myths, lies and any sort of corruption of science to ram their poisons down the throats of our food animals and of us human beings.

Shocking new Study

On August 25, the international scientific journal, Environmental Health, published the peer-reviewed results of a two-year study by a team led by Michael N. Antoniou of the Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics, King's College London. He conceived the study together with Prof. Gilles-Eric Seralini of the Institute of Biology, University of Caen, in France.

Under strictest conditions the different groups of rats were given micro-diluted concentrations of glyphosate and its adjuvants as found in Roundup from Monsanto. The glyphosate equivalent dose of Roundup administered in this study was half that permitted in drinking water in the European Union and Australia, and 14,000 times lower than that permitted in drinking water in the USA.

Moreover, the amount of glyphosate-equivalent Roundup consumed by the animals on a daily basis was many thousands of times below the regulatory set safety limits of glyphosate alone in all regions around the world.

This is the most extensive and only known long-term study of the potential toxic effects of glyphosate-based herbicides such as Monsanto's Roundup, even though Roundup with glyphosate was discovered by Monsanto in 1970.

Glyphosate-based herbicides (GBH) such as Roundup are the major pesticides used worldwide and are currently applied on at least 24 % of the total global cropland. They are also used extensively in domestic and urban environments. Residues of GBH are routinely detected in foodstuffs and drinking water contaminated via rain, surface runoff and leaching into groundwater. In short it's almost everywhere.

What the scientists discovered should set alarm bells ringing around the world. Have you heard even so much as a jingle bell so far?

They discovered that male animals suffered from pathological liver and kidney damage resulting in an increased rate of premature deaths. Further, significant alteration in the pattern of gene function was found in both the liver and kidneys of the Roundup group of rats compared with the control group. The alterations in gene function were consistent with fibrosis (scarring), necrosis (areas of dead tissue), phospholipidosis (disturbed fat metabolism) and damage to mitochondria (the centres of respiration in cells).

I want to underscore the seriousness of what Antoniou and his colleagues are describing. The liver is a vital organ. It has some 500 functions in the body including detoxification of various metabolites, protein synthesis, and the production of biochemicals necessary for digestion. This gland plays a major role in metabolism. It regulates a variety of essential reactions, including the synthesis and breakdown of small and complex molecules which are necessary for normal vital functions. In short, the liver supports almost every organ in the body and is vital for survival.

And we should also be clear on the role of other glyphosate-damaged organ, the kidneys, which are essential for the body's removal of waste products of metabolism. Kidneys are essential to the urinary system and also the regulation of electrolytes, maintenance of acid–base balance, and regulation of blood pressure by maintaining the salt and water balance. They are the body's natural filter of the blood, and remove water-soluble wastes which are diverted to the bladder.  If both kidneys and liver are damaged seriously, we are in bad trouble, or even dead.

To sum up the Antoniou and Seralini team's rat research results, rats fed ultra-low concentrations of glyphosate-based Roundup over the two year life-span period showed that, "twice the number of biochemical parameters was disturbed in kidney than what can be expected by chance. Furthermore, a testosterone/estrogen imbalance was evident with testosterone serum levels significantly increased by 97 % by comparison to controls, while estradiol serum levels were decreased by 26 %. These observations together with pituitary gland disturbances suggest endocrine disrupting effects." Estradiol is a steroid and estrogen sex hormone, and the primary female sex hormone. It is essential for the development and maintenance of female reproductive tissues but also has important effects in many other tissues including bone. Estrogens have essential functions in men as well.

The scientists continue their conclusions: "Overall, toxicity process analysis revealed gene expression disturbances associated with apoptosis, necrosis, phospholipidosis, mitochondrial membrane dysfunction and ischemia. Thus the alteration...in this study correlates with the observed increased signs of anatomical and functional pathology of the liver and kidneys." They observed "more than 4000 genes whose expression was altered in both the liver and kidneys within the Roundup treatment group."

Monsanto and corrupt scientists

Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini designed this newest study with his colleagues as a follow-up to a sensational 2012 study. The new study was specifically on the impact, not of feeding Roundup-sprayed GMO corn from Monsanto, but solely the isolated impact of Roundup, the glyphosate-based Roundup weed-killer used in all GMO crops today. In September 2012 Food and Chemical Toxicology, published Seralini's first ever-long-term two year study of the impact of Monsanto GMO corn sprayed, as Monsanto requires, with Monsanto's Roundup weed-killer.

That 2012 Seralini report described the world's first feeding study of the effects on more than 200 rats of a diet of GMO corn over a period of a full two years at a cost of €3 million.  The study found alarming instances of cancer tumors in rats fed GMO corn treated with Monsanto Roundup with Glyphosate. World media coverage forced the EU Commission to cover its pro-GMO tracks.

More than one year later, in 2013, in an unprecedented and entirely unethical move, the Food and Chemical Toxicology editors retracted the Seralini 2012 article. It was later discovered that a former senior Monsanto employee, Richard Goodman, had been named by the journal to their Editorial Board shortly before the Seralini study was retracted. A year after that blatantly corrupt action, Goodman along with Editor-in-chief A. Wallace Hayes were themselves both "removed" by the publisher.

But the corruption doesn't stop with the attempts to ostracise the Seralini rat studies.

EU Declares German Monsanto study "Secret"

In the latest twist in this criminal drama of lies and intrigues the EU Commission has just declared a German government study "secret" and unavailable for examination by independent scientific experts.

The EU Commission is refusing to let independent experts have access to the recent report prepared by the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) on the risk assessment of glyphosate.

On August 10, 2015 the EU Commission wrote to Testbiotech.org, an industry-independent group of experts registered as a non-profit organization to promote independent research and public debate on the impacts of biotechnology, a euphemism for GMO.

The EU Commission wrote that it had denied a request by Testbiotech to examine the documents made available to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) by the German government. The EU insisted, bizarrely, that the documents "are protected in their entirety" as confidential. The EU Commission can see "no overriding public interest" that would justify access. The letter was signed by Ladislav Miko, Acting Director-General of the EU Commission's Food Safety Directorate (the name of the EU office even sounds like 1984). Miko is another of those Brussels faceless bureaucrats with immense responsibility and no transparency.

At issue is a report sent to the EU Commission's Monsanto-linked EFSA, (European Food Safety Authority), this spring by the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) on the safety of glyphosate. The German assessment was made following widespread publicity about the WHO assessment that glyphosate was a likely cancer causing chemical. Surprisingly, the BfR came to the opposite conclusion, namely that there is no risk of cancer from glyphosates. Theirs was in a hasty study that apparently relied on an equally hasty study provided to the German government by...you guessed it–Monsanto scientists. That Monsanto study that formed the basis of the cheery German BfR report is what the scientific experts of Testbiotech.org wish to put under the microscope. To avoid that potential embarrassment, the EU Commission has labeled the German study "secret and confidential." The German government has also kept their report secret.

The criminal melodrama gets even more remarkable though.

In a 2013 court ruling made by the European Court of Justice, (Case T 545/11), judges ruled that data relevant for the risk assessment of herbicides have to be made public. The EU Commission as well as the German government are in contempt of that ruling.

Whatever Monsanto touches seems to ooze with corruption and fraud. It's interesting and extraordinary in its pervasiveness, and suggests the company has a deeper agenda than mere corporate profit. I would posit that the deeper Monsanto agenda has something to do with the company's long history with the pro-eugenics Rockefeller family and more recently with eugenicist advocate, Bill Gates of Microsoft.

Is the entire GMO project, a project financed and brought to commercialization primarily by the Rockefeller Foundation, a hidden eugenics project to gradually reduce world population of what Rockefeller and his kind would call "useless eaters" or human "weeds"? It's beginning to look more and more just like that. What an elegant way to get hundreds of millions or even a few billions of people to have them slowly eat themselves to death by consuming GMO and glyphosates they don't even notice until it's too late. Especially Asians, Africans, all non-Anglo-Saxons. But that is really ridiculous now, isn't it?"

Glyphosate Fact Sheet

December 21, 2017

Organic Consumers Association

"Glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, is the most widely used herbicide in the world. Its residues are found in water and soil. It's sprayed along roadsides, sidewalks, parks and playgrounds, gardens, and on school grounds. Testing shows a variety of foods contain glyphosate. It has been detected in the urine of the majority of people who have submitted samples for testing. Glyphosate has been found in breast milk, it damages the placenta and it crosses the placenta, which may result in birth defects.

Studies by independent scientists show that at the levels commonly found in the environment, on our food and in our bodies—levels that are lower than those allowed by regulatory agencies on our food—glyphosate causes a wide range of diseases and birth defects.

Cancers and Tumors

In March 2015, the World Health Organization's (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate as "Probably Carcinogenic to Humans" based on numerous scientific studies linking glyphosate to a range of cancers, including non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, renal cancers, skin cancers and pancreatic cancer. IARC initially published its conclusion in the Lancet Oncology Journal, the world's premier scientific journal for cancer studies.1

A study conducted by Flower et al. 2004, examined the levels of cancer in the children of people who sprayed glyphosate for weed control. They found that these children had increased levels of all childhood cancers, including all lymphomas such as non- Hodgkin's lymphoma.2

A case-controlled study published in March 1999, by Swedish scientists Lennart Hardell and Mikael Eriksson also linked non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) to exposure to a range of pesticides and herbicides, including glyphosate.3

The only published, peer-reviewed, lifetime- comparison feeding study found that rats fed a diet that contains a proportion of GM maize or minute residues of Roundup had significantly higher rates of tumors, kidney disease, liver damage and other negative health effects. Females that were fed either GM maize or non-GM maize with minute roundup residues developed large mammary tumors almost always more often, and sooner than the controls. All the non-control females, except for one that had an ovarian tumor, had mammary hypertrophies (enlarged mammary glands), and in some cases hyperplasia with atypia (nodules in the mammary glands). When compared with the control rats, treated males presented four times the number of tumorsthat were large enough to be felt by hand, and these occurred up to 600 days earlier.4

Cell Damage—Precursors to Cancer and Birth Defects

A study published in 2004, found that glyphosate-based herbicides caused cell-cycle dysregulation, which leads to cancers. According to the researchers, "Cell-cycle dysregulation is a hallmark of tumor cells and human cancers. Failure in the cell-cycle checkpoints leads to genomic instability and subsequent development of cancers from the initial affected cell." The researchers tested several glyphosate-based pesticides and found that all of them caused cell-cycle dysregulation.5

Research has shown that glyphosate can cause genetic damage, developmental disruption, morbidity and mortality even at what are currently considered normal levels of use.6 The article "Differential Effects of Glyphosate and Roundup on Human Placental Cells and Aromatase," published by Richard et al. in Environmental Health Perspectives, revealed evidence that glyphosate damaged human placental cells within 18 hours of exposure, even at concentrations lower than those found in commercially available pesticides and herbicides. The scientists stated that "this effect increases with concentration and time, or in the presence of Roundup adjuvants."7 (An adjuvant is any substance in a herbicide formulation or added to the spray tank to improve herbicidal activity or application characteristics).

Researchers of a study published in the journal Toxicology studied four different commercial glyphosate formulations and observed breaks in 50 percent of the DNA strands in human liver cells at doses as low as five parts per million (ppm). This damage affects the way DNA sends messages to several physiological systems, including the endocrine system. The researchers stated that this is significant because the liver is the first detoxification organ and is sensitive to dietary pollutants.8

Oxidative Stress and Cell Damage

Oxidative stress, defined as an imbalance between free radicals and the body's ability to repair the damage caused by free radicals, is one of the hallmarks of cancer, and a contributing factor to many chronic diseases. (A free radical is an atom or group of atoms that has at least one unpaired electron and is therefore unstable and highly reactive. In animal tissues, free radicals can damage cells and are believed to accelerate the progression of cancer, cardiovascular disease and age-related diseases). Oxidative stress has been linked to Alzheimer's, cancer and Parkinson's disease, among other health issues.

Cattani et al. found that both acute and chronic exposure to Roundup induced oxidative stress, resulting in neural cell death and neurotoxic effects in the hippocampus region of the brain in immature rats.9

Lushchak et al. found that a 96-hour exposure to low levels of Roundup in water caused oxidative stress to the cells in the brains, livers and kidneys of goldfish.10

Studies by El-Shenawy and de Liz Oliveira Cavalli et al. confirm that Roundup and glyphosate caused oxidative stress and necrosis in cells, including the liver, testis and Sertoli cells (responsible for testes formation and sperm production) in rats.11

Teratogenicity (Birth Defects) in Animals

Clements et al. published a study in 1997, showing damage to DNA in bullfrog tadpoles after exposure to glyphosate. The scientists concluded that glyphosate's "genotoxicity at relatively low concentrations" was of concern.12

A 2003 study by Lajmanovich et al. found that up to 55 percent of tadpoles exposed to a glyphosate herbicide had deformities to the mouth, eyes, skull, vertebrae and tails.13

A 2003 study by Dallegrave et al. found that the offspring of pregnant rats dosed with glyphosate had increased  skeletal abnormalities.14

A 2004 study conducted by biologists at Trent University, Carleton University (Canada), and the University of Victoria (Canada) showed that concentrations of several glyphosate herbicides at levels found in the environment caused developmental problems in tadpoles. The exposed tadpoles did not to grow to the normal size, took longer than normal to develop, and between 10 and 25 percent had abnormal sex organs.15

A 2010 study found that almost 60 percent of tadpoles treated with Roundup at one ppm had malformations such as kyphosis, scoliosis and edema.16 A 2012 study by Relyea found that tadpoles exposed to concentrations of Roundup found in the environment had changes to their tails.17

Paganelli et al. in 2010, found that both Roundup and glyphosate by itself caused severe malformations in the embryos of chickens and frogs and that this could occur in frogs when exposed to less than 0.5 ppm. The researchers identified the specific mechanism that glyphosate and Roundup use to cause the malformations. They found that the chemicals disrupted a key biochemical mechanism, the retinoic acid signaling pathway.18 The retinoic acid signaling pathway is used by all vertebrates, including humans, to ensure the normal development of organs, bones and tissues in embryos. It is also essential for normal sexual development, especially in males. The pathway signals the exact time and place that the development of organs and tissues occurs in embryos. It also corrects malformations if they start. Disrupting its normal balance means that the various organs and tissues can be given signals to form incorrectly, and the pathway cannot correct any of these embryo malformations when they start forming.19

Research by Mesnage et al. found that Roundup from 1 ppm to 20,000 ppm causes cells of the human body to die. At 50 ppm, Roundup delays the cellular apoptosis (a process, also known as programmed cell death, whereby cells that are no longer needed or are a threat to the organism self-destruct) that is essential for the normal functioning and regeneration of cells, body tissues and organs.20 Delaying or stopping apoptosis is considered one of the causes of cancer.

Endocrine Disruption

Gasnier et al. in 2009, reported endocrine-disrupting actions of glyphosate at 0.5 ppm. According to the authors this is "800 times lower than the level authorized in some food or feed (400 ppm, USEPA, 1998)."21

Professor Séralini's 2014 study published in Environmental Sciences Europe found that both GM maize and Roundup act as endocrine disrupters, and that consumption of GM maize and Roundup resulted in female rats dying—at rate two to three times higher than the control animals. The pituitary gland was the second-most disabled organ and the sex hormonal balance was modified in females fed with the GMO and Roundup treatments.22.

Disruption of Metabolic Pathways

One of the most significant studies was published by Samsel and Seneff in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Entropy in 2013. This comprehensive review, titled "Glyphosate's Suppression of Cytochrome P450 Enzymes and Amino Acid Biosynthesis by the Gut Microbiome: Pathways to Modern Diseases," showed how glyphosate disrupted numerous biochemical pathways within the human body, including gut microorganisms, and consequently could lead to numerous diseases.23

Disruption of the Gut Microbiome

Samsel and Seneff's paper identified how glyphosate disrupted the gut microbiome, causing the suppression of biosynthesis of cytochrome P450 enzymes and key amino acids. In a later paper, "Glyphosate, Pathways to Modern Diseases II: Celiac Sprue and Gluten Intolerance," Samsel and Seneff showed how the current increase in celiac disease and gluten intolerance in people was linked to glyphosate's adverse effects on the gut microbiome. They highlighted that glyphosate is patented as a biocide, and consequently it kills the beneficial gut bacteria, leading to a rise in intestinal diseases.24

Krüger et al. showed that glyphosate has this effect in the microbiome of horses and cows.25

Shehata et al. found the same effects in poultry. The researchers state, "Highly pathogenic bacteria as Salmonella Entritidis, Salmonella Gallinarum, Salmonella Typhimurium, Clostridium perfringens and Clostridium botulinum are highly resistant to glyphosate. However, most of beneficial bacteria such as Enterococcus faecalis, Enterococcus faecium, Bacillus badius, Bifidobacterium adolescentis and Lactobacillus spp. were found to be moderate to highly susceptible."26

Both groups of researchers postulated that glyphosate is associated with the increase in botulism-mediated diseases in these domestic farm animals.

Kidney and Liver Disease

Since the 1990s, researchers in Sri Lanka have reported an epidemic of kidney failure in rice paddy workers exposed to glyphosate in combination with minerals in hard water. According to Jayasumana et al., glyphosate's strong chelating properties allow it to combine with heavy metals and arsenic in hard waters, resulting in damage to renal tissues and thereby causing chronic kidney diseases. 27

In the lifetime feeding study of rats conducted by Séralini et al. in 2014, the treated males displayed liver congestions and necrosis at rates 2.5 to 5.5 times higher than the controls, as well as marked and severe kidney nephropathies (kidney damage) at rates generally 1.3 to 2.3 greater than the controls.

In a later published study designed to understand why Roundup and glyphosate-based herbicides caused the kidney and liver damage in rats, scientists discovered that ultra-low doses of the herbicides disrupted the functions of numerous genes, which resulted in changes consistent with multiple kidney and liver disease problems. The researchers stated, "Our results suggest that chronic exposure to a GBH (glyphosate- based herbicides) in an established laboratory animal toxicity model system at an ultra-low, environmental dose can result in liver and kidney damage with potential significant health implications for animal and human populations." 28

Dr. Naomi Hunter

On the Degradation Pathway of Glyphosate and Glycine
"Some of my friends ask me: if Glyphosate is in say.... your wine.... is it safe to consume?

I sold all my Cali wine because every bottle I tested including the Organic stuff had it present.

What is the problem fundamentally with glyphosate? It replaces glycine in proteins and collagen is the number one protein in your body (71% by volume) that uses glycine. Glycine is unique among amino acids in that it is achiral. Chiral amino acids offer the ability of cells to polarize sunlight. Glycine is used in places in cells where we do not want to use the Faraday effect of polarization so this changes optical signaling. Glycine can fit into hydrophilic or hydrophobic environments, due to its minimal side chain that contains only one hydrogen atom.

Glyphosate is chemically unusual and very different than glycine because of its "achiral ability" because glyphosate's nitrogen atoms chelate to surrounding metal atoms in proteins ruining their stereochemistry and tertiary and quaternary structure. When this pestacide's nitrogen binds to the copper ions in collagen then all versions of collagen's sterochemistry becomes fixed atomically even when sunlight hits it and the protein loses its ability to become piezoelectric and release light or a DC electric signal to water shells around collagen. This stimulates ubiquitin marking and lead to many problems in tissues.

This bonding also affects the protein side chains electric fields and this ruins the Faraday effect in tissues and tissues loose their optic-magnetic coupling of growth and metabolism pathways. The amino acid glycine does not chelate metal atoms and this allows sunlight to be trapped in cells and have that light polarized in a specific way that cells use for signaling. Any food with glyphosate residue cause the collagen in those cells not to transfer energy to the EZ and it loses its ability to remain piezoelectric.

For those who do not know collagen is the major N-type semiconductor in humans, so when glyphosate replaces glycine all proteins where this replacement occurs under go dielectric collapse. This means energy leaves drop in these tissues because of the effect on the exclusion zone of water which is dielectric crystal. This causes you to have a lower redox even if you were naked on the equator with no clothing on. This is something most food guru's whiff on. Too much physics for them to explain."

"depression and glyphosate are also linked too."

- Dr. Jack Kruse

"My recent Time 21 blog covers these N type semiconductors and how they operate. None of this information is contained in the video below but it is the main reason these chemicals are a problem for living things. Glycine has an innate ability to be a chameleon for exclusion zone of water because it can be hydrophobic to reduce the EZ or hydrophilic to raise the EZ in places it is used in proteins construction. This ability is also lost when it is replaced by glyphosate. Protein chemistry is highly specific and small changes lead to massive outcomes in non linear systems. Glyphosate is Roundup weed killer for those who don't know that is used to grow most foods in the USA and EU. It is a chemical you should avoid and one you should not use on your grass to ground. Glyphosate Pretending to be Glycine: "

The following vaccines were found to be contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate: MMR, Varicella (chicken pox), Zostavax (shingles), Proquad (MMR, rubella, varicella), Fluzone Quad (flu vaccine) and Hepatitis B (B Energix-B). Multiple vaccines from different manufactures were found to be contaminated. Folks, this is a big deal. Injecting a vaccine contaminated with a known herbicide that is "probably carcinogenic to humans" should be prohibited. We need a Congressional investigation into our vaccines. We keep hearing the mantra that vaccines are safe. Injecting a vaccine containing an herbicide is safe? You can see Dr. Samsel talk about his research here:

Ye Olde Powder Monkey

What this somewhat bewildering scientific accumulation of CAUSES OF AUTISM does not address is:
- AUTISM IS a DEVELOPMENTAL DISORDER and it can occur via numerous (what's the tech gibberish for this) Pro ..../ Precursors, that's it; precursors.

Childhood bereavement for instance as shown by Erna Furman et all in the Yale University study of 1975.
The book: "A child's parent dies" gives a plethora of scientific proofs from a 5-yr work with a number (16 or more) children who were recently bereaved of one or both parents, and some who lost a parent during the study. In every single bereavement case, the onset of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) was found and recognised that it will accompany these children for the rest of their lives. Finally, the appearance of PTSD at a tender age, will often lead to the onset of Developmental Disorder, bearing all the hall-marks of Autism.

That's what it is. It's not all down to just the MRM vaccines or Monsanto Corp's concoctions.
We're way beyond that level of simplicity.
