    Monsanto's Roundup Herbicide, Linked To Parkinson's, Cancer And Other Health Issues, Study Shows

    Don't eat GMO!

    April 25 (Reuters) - Heavy use of the world's most popular herbicide, Roundup, could be linked to a range of health problems and diseases, including Parkinson's, infertility and cancers, according to a new study.

    The peer-reviewed report, published last week in the scientific journal Entropy, said evidence indicates that residues of "glyphosate," the chief ingredient in Roundup weed killer, which is sprayed over millions of acres of crops, has been found in food.

    Those residues enhance the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and toxins in the environment to disrupt normal body functions and induce disease, according to the report, authored by Stephanie Seneff, a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Anthony Samsel, a retired science consultant from Arthur D. Little, Inc. Samsel is a former private environmental government contractor as well as a member of the Union of Concerned Scientists.

    "Negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body," the study says.

    We "have hit upon something very important that needs to be taken seriously and further investigated," Seneff said.

    Environmentalists, consumer groups and plant scientists from several countries have warned that heavy use of glyphosate is causing problems for plants, people and animals.

    The EPA is conducting a standard registration review of glyphosate and has set a deadline of 2015 for determining if glyphosate use should be limited. The study is among many comments submitted to the agency.

    Monsanto is the developer of both Roundup herbicide and a suite of crops that are genetically altered to withstand being sprayed with the Roundup weed killer.

    These biotech crops, including corn, soybeans, canola and sugarbeets, are planted on millions of acres in the United States annually. Farmers like them because they can spray Roundup weed killer directly on the crops to kill weeds in the fields without harming the crops.

    Roundup is also popularly used on lawns, gardens and golf courses.

    Monsanto and other leading industry experts have said for years that glyphosate is proven safe, and has a less damaging impact on the environment than other commonly used chemicals.

    Jerry Steiner, Monsanto's executive vice president of sustainability, reiterated that in a recent interview when questioned about the study.

    "We are very confident in the long track record that glyphosate has. It has been very, very extensively studied," he said.

    Of the more than two dozen top herbicides on the market, glyphosate is the most popular. In 2007, as much as 185 million pounds of glyphosate was used by U.S. farmers, double the amount used six years ago, according to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data.

    Any herbiside or pestiside will no doubt be harmful to people, and animals yet its still in use. it's still in use because the ruling forces who want all the more control allow it and want it there to harm us to control us more no doubt. We need to do something about this and stand up and say no and not use either gmo crops or the weed and bug killers. There's always alternatives. No wonder the world is sick.

    An alternative already exists...buy Organic but be prepared, Organic on the scale to feed the country is extremely labor intensive which means the price will go up with demand.

    1. it's hard to be truly organic when sprayed from above with god knows what
    2. i'm sure there must be some sort of organic pesticide that can be used as an alternative the the nonorganic ones that hurt us.

    of course organic is a much better alternative to anything that man gets its hands on thinking they know better than nature itself

    Sprayed from above? You must be referring to conspiracist theories.

    There are plenty, for example, simple dish detergent and water will take of certain aphids but it still is labor intensive in that it must be repeated. Another example, Marigolds planted next to certain plants will repel beetles. There are some excellent references available on Compatible Plants for gardens as well as plants that will keep certain pests at bay.

    And that is why you should wash all fruits and vegetables prior to consumption but what about salmonella on vegetables from those that pick it?

    Just my opinion,
