Glyphosate is now linked to a sharp increase in celiac disease, cancers and autism.
She, the prof, offers some interesting points of global hope, including China, Russia and Moms of autistic children! Bottom line, eat organic, aka, Monsanto eat your heart out:
March 22, 2014: Mayan bee-keepers and indigenous communities took Monsanto to court.
Monsanto Corn-Fed Rats
Problem / Solution
Mammary tumors, ladies and gents. A study, psst, not funded by Monsanto.
The rats lived in such agony that many were euthanized before the study ended. The repercussions on global consciousness are just beginning.
Government, supposed defender of the Tree of Life. can lose the trust of our planetary people. Complicit legislative, judicial and executive branches bend to a Tree of Death, letting land be poisoned and food be profitably deformed, unto the generations.
Biotech agriculture has managed to deplete and poison soil life of the Great Plains, once breadbasket to the world.
In the Punjab, breadbasket of India, generational farmers used to plant locally adapted, drought-resistant seed, and save part of the heirloom seed for next year's planting.
GMO-greed-seed requires yearly purchase. Globalist interests urged a feed-the-world shift to biotech on India. Bottom line, subsistence farmers were suddenly burdened with having to buy Monsanto seed, every year.
If the Nobel Peace Prize had not been awarded to Hiss-inger and Obomber, I'd cheer for Vandana Shiva, who cried Bullshit to biotech. (Bullshit, being a DVD.)
Farmers in India have watched touted GMO yields go down and crops fail, as debt destroyed family wealth. Trapped in the doom of having to buy GMO seed annually when facing foreclosure, farmers have committed suicide by the tens of thousands.
How? By drinking Monsanto agri-cides, alleged elixirs, which have killed their livelihoods.
Monster chemical corporations threaten family farms, buy up small seed companies, and poison at will---water tables, rivers, air and rain. Biotech firms produce degenerative-disease-food for supermarket shelves.
So--cancers, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, sexual dysfunction--get up and go; got up and gone.
Perhaps not, though stolen elections and useless petitions may seem so. Can we still hope for "truth, justice and the American way?"
Update: 6 July 2013,
Putin promptly halted Russian import of what he termed, "American Cancer Corn" when he was informed of the French study of Monsanto corn-fed rats.
Grains increasingly achieve GMO-infamy as banned export items.
Next up, contaminated US wheat, contaminated from GMO-wheat held in storage by the USDA. Countries are refusing to buy. China recently destroyed US shipments of GMO-soy.
US GMO-rice we now learn has escaped captivity, from allegedly safe field trials, and has apparently contaminated the world's gene pool of even heirloom rice.
That's the import-export story and major hurt to AgBiz mega-monoculture of Monsanto grains and soybeans.
Meanwhile, Monsanto has bankrupted conventional and organic farmers through litigation, suing anyone whose farm has been contaminated by Monsanto GMO's. Patent infringement, don'tcha know.
Superweeds, courtesy of Roundup, are enriching chemical companies including the perp itself, with the prescription of ever-more toxic sprays. Soils are destroyed; crop yields go down.
Human, animal and plant toxicity of GMO's and Glyphosate (Roundup) is busting out all over. Bless the whistle blowers.
Crop yields of flowering plants--orchards, tomatoes, squash & melons, beans-- need pollinators. AgBiz sprays kill pests and pollinators alike.
No bees and butterflies, and you get agricultural wasteland where blossoms don't set fruit. We go from bounty to chem lab land-blight. Another name for that is hunger.
And what do we make of the massive "Doomsday Seed Vault"" in the Norwegian Arctic, funded by movers and shakers of our current GMO planetary aberration?
Hope in action may come from family farms still rich in heirloom seed, including native peoples in the ancient cradle of maize (corn) cultivation:
"Mexico could be Monsanto's Waterloo. Thousands of small farmers, many in indigenous communities—Nahuatl, Maya, Mixteco–are fighting back. Stubborn in the face of a government clearly allied with the transnationals and corporations determined to wear down their resistance, the farmers are defending their right to use the traditional maize seed that their ancestors developed over millennia. They are also defending their way of life and, ultimately, global access to safe and affordable food."
The Environmental Protection Agency, so-called, has been profitably infiltrated by Monsanto-collaborators.
So? Note higher levels allowed in root crops. Say what? Ugly truth being that...
