Glyphosate – The Disease Manufacturer
By Ginny Chandoha, October 18, 2015
Being diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosis in 2009 started my investigation of all the chemicals in the products I used, the foods I ate, and the cleaning agents and products for my home. As I read the harmful effects on cells, organs, tissues, and bodily systems, my heart pounded, a knot formed in my stomach, and I was so distressed that I trembled at the prospect of how all of these chemicals I’d unwittingly allowed into my life had harmed me.
Not much has affected me that way in the past 6 years as all of the latest studies merely confirm what I already know about these chemicals, and have gone to great lengths to avoid. But recently new information has surfaced that has once again left my heart pounding, my stomach in a knot, and my body trembling at the magnitude of how we are all in peril.
We all know that the biotech industry is nothing more than a conglomeration of chemical companies that are out to control every morsel of food that we put into our mouths. It’s not because they want to feed the world, it’s so they can sell more chemicals. These chemicals, specifically glyphosate’s sole purpose is to kill things, which inevitably means us.
For 30+ years glyphosate has been presented as easily degradable in the environment, and safe for mammals, including humans. But documents recently unsealed after being hidden away prove that the manufacturer of glyphosate has known all along just how toxic their product is.
In the US, the FDA doubled the “acceptable level” of glyphosate from 20 ppm to 40 ppm, while many other countries are either banning the use of glyphosate, or limiting its use. Despite that, 130 countries permit extensive use of glyphosate, and in 2013 glyphosate sales rose 37%, with the US using 280 million pounds. It is the most widely used herbicide in use today.
In 2015 the World Health Organization classified glyphosate as a “probable human carcinogen.” That doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of how deleterious this chemical is and how it adversely affects every mammal, including humans on a cellular level and is detrimental to every tissue, every organ, every bodily system.
While a large body of reputable independent research confirms that glyphosate is far more toxic and poses more health risks than the manufacturer and the USFDA care to admit, recently this chemical giant’s own documentation has been unsealed and the evidence is not only incriminating, it is alarming and sickening.
Dr. Anthony Samsel, an independent research scientist and member of the Union of Concerned Scientists, along with his co-investigator, Dr. Stephanie Seneff of MIT, have devoted their independent research on Roundup’s toxicological characteristics and bioactivity. Through the help of his senator, Dr. Samsel acquired the chemical giant’s own extensive studies throughout the 1970s-1980s on the toxicity and health risks of glyphosate that was submitted to the EPA. Those studies were intentionally sealed, keeping the company’s own damming research from independent and public scrutiny.
Even though still reviewing this chemical manufacturer’s complete testing results of glyphosate toxicity and health risks, what has already surfaced is that the company has known and covered up for nearly four decades that glyphosate is directly responsible for a large variety of cancers, organ failures, and many other diseases.
According to the chemical company’s meticulous and comprehensive studies, glyphosate bio-accumulates in every cell, every tissue of the body. They conducted tests on male and female mammals and found that only 24 hours after ingestion at low levels, glyphosate had accumulated in:
- All body fluids (lymph, blood, urine and cerebral spinal fluid)
- Bone and Bone marrow
- Red cells
- Uterus and ovaries
- Shoulder muscle
- Nasal mucosa
- Small intestine
- Abdominal muscle
Dr. Samsel notes that glyphosate is especially harmful to the lungs and lung cancers such as adenocarcinomas, COPD and asthma are rising dramatically. In mid-western states where GMO corn is primarily grown and heavily sprayed with glyphosate, the cataract rates for adults 40+ years of age will reach nearly 40% within 15 years. This chemical giant’s study revealed that sunlight reacts with glyphosate residue, increasing its toxicity.
The company’s studies also reveal exposure to glyphosate, along with the other “inert” chemicals found in their herbicide, are directly related to basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas, which are the most common forms of skin cancer. The many other cancers linked directly to glyphosate exposure in the chemical company’s own studies include:
- Adenoma cancer in the pituitary gland
- Glioma tumors in the brain
- Reticular cell sarcomas in the heart
- Malignant tumors in the lungs
- Salivary mandibular reticular cell carcinoma
- Metastatic sarcomas of the lymph gland
- Prostate carcinoma
- Cancer of the bladder
- Thyroid carcinoma
- Adrenal reticulum cell sarcomas
- Cortical adenomas
A large body of independent research collectively confirms that glyphosate is linked to Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and autism because glyphosate has been shown to trigger aluminum accumulation in the brain. The herbicide has also been found to be a causal agent in:
- Neural tube and birth defects
- Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
- Chronic kidney and liver diseases
- Heart disease
- Leaky gut syndrome
The chemical manufacturer’s extensive research also studied metabolites, the intermediate molecules that form during the breakdown of their herbicide, which proved them to be doubly toxic.
The chemical giant presented to the EPA studies conducted no longer than 3 months. There was a reason for that. The company’s long-term studies (some as long as 2 years), plus long-term studies by independent scientists reveal that profuse cancer tumor development started after the 4th month.
A 2-year independent scientific study of rats given low doses of glyphosate in their drinking water resulted in alterations in over 4,000 gene clusters in the livers and kidneys of the rats. The alterations included fibrosis, necrosis, phospholipidosis, mitochondria membrane dysfunction and ischemia.
The manufacturer conducted hundreds of glyphosate testing on rats, mice, rabbits, beagles, and other mammals. With the unrelenting release of GMO crops, and the ever rising use of the herbicide that has garnered this company billions of dollars in profits, it is obvious that all mammals, including us, are nothing more than collateral damage.
And yet, this company is rewarded by having top influential employees appointed to government agencies, elected officials are in their pocket, their money funds presidential campaigns, and foundations that are supposed to improve global health and wellness receive hefty donations.
Glyphosate is blanketing the earth. It’s in our lakes, rivers, streams, tributaries, ground water, and drinking water. It’s in our air, and it’s been found in 71% of raindrops. There is literally no escape from glyphosate and the prospect for our children, grandchildren, and future generations is horrific unless this company is stopped and its chemicals banned.
Our lives and those of our children, grandchildren, and future generations depend upon our taking a stand against a company and government that intentionally inflicts pain and suffering on its people. It is time to stand against vaccine mandates that inject our children, beginning at the age of 2 hours old, with heavy metal adjuvants such as aluminum that glyphosate will pave the way to collect in their brains. It is no wonder that recent statistics show the onset of Alzheimer’s disease now afflicting in 40-year-olds. It is time to ask local and state government officials, congressional and presidential candidates what their stand is on GMO’s and vaccine mandates and let them know we are against it. It is time to avoid anything containing GMO’s, and that includes vitamins, baby formula, baby food, vaccines, even pet food. It’s time to avoid non-GMO crops being hosed down with the glyphosate herbicide before harvest…crops such as potatoes, peas, beans, soybeans, wheat, barley, oats, and peanuts. It is time to demand a stop to glyphosate being used to maintain lawns, parks, removal of underbrush along power lines and pipelines, and on our children’s playgrounds. It is time to demand organically grown crops as our sole source of food ingredients. It is our God-given right to decide for ourselves what happens to our own body and that of our children. It is time to stand against the denial of an education if we refuse to capitulate to mandates and having poison shoved down our throats.
If this chemical company were any other group, they would be, at the very least, charged with domestic terrorism or chemical warfare. At most they should be charged with crimes against humanity and their billions in profits used to compensate those they have deliberately harmed.
