In June 2016, a group of independent scientists urged the EPA to ban Monsanto’s Roundup. The scientists, met the EPA at the O’Neill House Office Building in Washington D.C. They testified that Roundup poses an unreasonable risk to humans, animals, and the environment. The closed-door meeting was with EPA scientists and host Ted Lieu, (CA-33).
Glyphosate linked with Autism, Alzheimer’s, Cancer, etc.
The scientists explained the physiological reasons why exposure to glyphosate, Roundup’s listed “active” ingredient, is linked to autism, Alzheimer’s, cancer, birth defects, obesity, gluten intolerance, and other health issues.
300 million pounds of RoundUp are sprayed each year on corn, soy, sugar beets, canola, and weeds just in the U.S. alone. Half of Monsanto’s annual sales come from glyphosate-containing products, some $5 billion per year.
Dr. Stephen Frantz led the team. The Pathobiologist Research Scientist told EPA: “When a cell is trying to form proteins, it may grab glyphosate instead of glycine to form a damaged, mis-folded protein. After that it’s medical chaos. Where glyphosate replaces glycine, the cell can no longer conduct business as usual, causing “unpredicted consequences” that result in “many diseases and disorders.”
Roundup also harms crops’ abilities to capture carbon from the air, an important factor in fighting climate change. Roundup also strips plants of nutrition we all need to keep our immune systems strong, and to perform every other task a body needs to survive.
Scientists: “We call for a ban on glyphosate”
“Glyphosate negatively affects the soil microbiome,” explained Dr. Frantz. “It is destroying the ability of soil to be a nutritive medium for producing crops. Organic or biological regenerative agriculture is the solution for the sustainable agricultural sector and will conserve soil, air and water quality, and sequester carbon that helps to mitigate the climate crisis. We call for a ban on glyphosate.”
Glyphosate driving Antibiotic Resistance, Superbugs
Dr. Frantz further explained that glyphosate is a patented antimicrobial. He said that eating glyphosate-laden foods exposes us to a chronic, low dose antibiotic. “This is likely causing antibiotic resistance and superbugs,” he said.
Child Casualties of Processed Foods
Moms Across America founder Zen Honeycutt also attended the meeting. Her son had been a casualty of processed foods. He was diagnosed with autism until his mother switched him to an all-organic diet.
Ms. Honeycutt said, “Mothers and caretakers are seeing their loved ones get sick on GMOs and glyphosate/herbicide sprayed foods and get better when they avoid them. Because glyphosate is contaminating our urine, water, breast milk and nearly all our foods, we are systematically causing sickness throughout America. For the sake of our country, this must stop. We simply cannot afford glyphosate.”
Statistics back Ms. Honeycutt. Some 93% or Americans are estimated to be poisoned with glyphosate in some capacity. Glyphosate has been found in nearly every person who has ever been tested for it.
Scientists: Ban Monsanto’s Roundup
A DNA Research Scientist, Sterling Hill, added, “Glyphosate is impacting DNA and causing disease. These diseases are skyrocketing and we will only see more of this if we do not put a stop to the use of glyphosate.”
Destroying Human Health for Decades
An MIT research scientist, Dr. Stephanie Seneff, has said, “It is going to be incomprehensible to future generations how our generation could have let glyphosate poison the earth’s ecosystems and destroy global human health for over four decades.
EPA Foot Dragging on Glyphosate Poison
The Deputy Director of EPA’s Pesticide Programs said the calendar will likely be deep into 2017 before the agency makes a final decision about whether EPA will re-register the chemical for continued use. On its web site, EPA says it invites comments on the pesticide. Click this link to comment to the EPA.
Glyphosate is Outright Poisoning, Period
Dr. Frantz wants EPA to take action now. He sees the use of glyphosate simply as what it so obviously is: outright poisoning of our food and soil:
“By the end of 2016, the EPA will have something done and then comment periods, and then there’s another step, and there’s more comment periods, and this is like business as usual. The evidence we presented about this chemical being a glycine analog, that really should excite people. And I didn’t see any excitement. It should upset people.”
Pray for Guidance
We all need to pray for Dr Frantz to have his voice heard by the EPA. We need to pray for people who work in this agency which is so tragically compromised by Monsanto. EPA and Monsanto have been shown to be in collusion to protect Monsanto profits and hide the truth from the poisoned public. If more of us don’t start fighting back soon, our health may be so depleted that we may not have the energy. Perhaps that is the real plan all along. It certainly drive profits for Big Pharma and the medical mafia that run all of Western medicine with an iron fist.
