A Scientific Analysis of Glyphosate & GM Food by A Former Pro-GMO Scientist of 30 Years — Rangitikei Enviromental Health Watch

With all the so called debate raging still about glyphosate & GM food (really not rocket science when you read the research, they just split hairs in the interests of corporate greed) this is an excellent listen. When somebody who has been part of the industry, switches sides & speaks out, we need to sit […]

(NaturalNews) Worldwide, glyphosate contamination is rampant. Around 650,000 tons of the chemical, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, were applied globally in 2011. Unsurprisingly, the widely used weed killer is in our water supplies, soil and conventionally grown crops. Now, thanks to independent testing, we’re beginning to understand how glyphosate, a probable carcinogen, accumulates in people.

Contrary to biotech claims, GM crops increase pesticide use

Even Harvard has bowed to the Biotech Giants, stating that herbicide use is “ubiquitous” and may or may not increase with the cultivation of genetically modified (GM) crops. However, GM crops accounted for 45.2% of the global glyphosate market in 2012 and have been increasingly cultivated. Without GMOs, there would be a great decrease in the use of carcinogenic glyphosate. Continue reading Global Glyphosate Herbicide Market IS Driven by Genetically Modified Crops

Is Monsanto’s base beginning to crumble?

Monsanto’s Round Up, which contains glyphosate as its main ingredient, was recently named a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization (WHO). This means it is going to have a hard time getting re-licensed in Europe. The Netherlands and Sweden recently joined France in an anti-glyphosate stance.

(NaturalNews) A study that is estimated to cost $25 million, run over the course of three years and experiment on thousands of rats by feeding them Monsanto genetically modified maize and the herbicide it’s made with is in the works, expected to go into full swing in 2015.

The reason behind the need for the long-term study is explained by Elena Sharoykina, a campaigner and co-founder of the Russian national association for genetic safety (Nags). She’s also the experiment’s coordinator. You might want to sit down for this one, as her response will likely leave many people scratching their heads in confusion.
