REALITY SHAPING by Cathy D. Slaght
Not only are Monsanto's seeds "RoundUp Ready", it has also become normal for farmers to spray their crops with MORE glyphosate just before harvest. This dries the crop, making it cheaper and easier to harvest.
And "science"- our science, not that of other countries, tells us all this is just fine.
So how about the rest of the planet?
Scientists in other countries tell us that glyphosate is an endocrine disrupter. It induces apoptocis (cell suicide) and reduces testosterone. (Glyphosate has become a very serious contaminant in the food system. It's in our water. and is said to lead to kidney problems and infertility.)
In France, 2012, a study was done where rats were fed round up corn. First, they developed liver and kidney problems. But after a few months they also started developing tumors.
There was a huge campaign by Monsanto to vilify this study. These scientists, it was said, didn't know what they were doing. And what was it specifically? This was a toxicity study, said Monsanto. It wasn't a cancer study.
Finally, Monsanto put one of their own on the editorial board of the journal that published the findings. They quickly retracted the paper.
And how about the study on glyphosate inducing human breast cancer? That one was done by the University of Bankok.
Or did you know about the epidemic of birth defects in Argentina? Babies were born with half a brain and all kinds of congenital malformation.
It seems the plains in the Argentinas used to be covered in grasses. That's all gone, now they grow engineered soybeams. The acreage is so huge it's all done by airplane, spraying roundup from the sky.
These defects were duplicated when frogs were injected with a small amount of glyphosate.
Monsanto's website says that if by accident you were to ingest some glyphosate, you would flush it through your system the next day- it's like water. But research in Germany had the exact opposite findings. Not only does it stick, it accumulates.
Here's another paper- published in 2014- chronically ill people have higher glyphosate in their urine.
