Glyphosate

Farmers becoming more interested in growing non-GMO crops

By Lilley: (NaturalNews) Farmers, lured by declining commodity prices and pressures involving weed resistance to glyphosate (the main ingredient in Roundup), have recently expressed a strong interest in growing non-GMO soybeans and corn in early 2015.

Are you sensitive to gluten, or just Roundup? American wheat often doused with toxic herbicide before harvest

By Huff:(NaturalNews) The mystery behind skyrocketing rates of Celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and other wheat-related illnesses may not have anything to do with wheat or even gluten, but rather the process by which conventional American wheat is grown and harvested.

Unbeknownst to most consumers is the fact that just before harvest, a vast majority of conventional wheat grown in the U.S. is doused in Roundup herbicide, which ends up poisoning your favorite breads, cereals, cakes, and pastries.

Glyphosate disrupting root systems, destroying soil nutrients and eliminating earthworms

By Wilson:(NaturalNews) More than 100 million pounds of the weedkiller glyphosate is applied annually to crops in the U.S., contributing to cancers such as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and liver, pancreas and thyroid cancer, among other health complications. One of the main ingredients in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, glyphosate, not only is a threat to human health but is aggressively altering our environment in ways that could have long-term consequences.

Glyphosate found at high levels in mothers' breast milk


Chemicals that destroy the natural world, like glyphosate, are being blasted into the earth at an unprecedented rate. Sales of Monsanto's Roundup, which contains glyphosate, spiked 73 percent in 2013. The rise of genetically modified crops is ushering in the mass application of immune system-destroying chemicals, as consequences are unveiled, one after another.

Glyphosate found to accumulate in animals and humans, leading to chronic illness


Yet another scientific study has debunked the myth that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) pose no threat whatsoever to animals or humans. A team of researchers from both Germany and Egypt, publishing their findings in the Journal of Environmental & Analytical Toxicology, discovered that animals fed GM feed had much higher levels of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, in their urine and organs than animals fed non-GM or organic feed.

Sri Lanka bans glyphosate herbicide to avoid kidney disease risk


Sri Lanka, the large island south of India, is home to more than 20 million people who are now saying "no" to Monsanto's Roundup. Sri Lanka's president has suddenly issued a ban on glyphosate herbicide, as new studies suggest that the chemical is a main culprit behind a growing kidney disease epidemic arising in agricultural workers in Central America.

Latest studies show that glyphosate causes gluten intolerance


The incidence of gluten intolerance, celiac disease and other health problems linked to the consumption of wheat and gluten are on the rise world wide and seem to be reaching epidemic proportions. But while wheat, and more specifically gluten, have traditionally been blamed for this modern epidemic, new evidence points to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, as being a probable cause or contributor to this rapidly increasing health crisis.

Health officials warn consumers to avoid pesticide-tainted cactus from Mexico


A shipment of edible cactus pads, or nopales, from Mexico was recently analyzed by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), who determined that the cactus products were saturated with a pesticide that has been banned even in the USA since 1989.
