A new study (1) has found that exposure to glyphosate-based herbicides (GBHs), including Roundup, caused reproductive and developmental effects in both male and female rats, at a dose level currently considered safe in the U.S. (1.75 mg/kg bw/day). Exposure to GBHs was associated with androgen-like effects, including a statistically significant increase of anogenital distance (AGD)… Read More Global Glyphosate Study Pilot Phase Shows Reproductive and Developmental Effects at ‘Safe’ Dose

Jeffrey and Carey discuss the role Monsanto played in hiding the dangerous toxicity of glyphosate from the public.
Watch Jeffrey and Vandana talk in this short clip about the biotech industry and the impact consumers are making by purchasing organic and avoiding GMOs.
Originally pubished on EWG A new analysis from the peer-reviewed scientific journal Environmental Sciences Europe documents the diametrically different approaches the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the World Health Organization took when determining the cancer risk from exposure to Monsanto’s weedkiller glyphosate. The report shows that the EPA ignored a large number of peer-reviewed independent studies that… Read More Analysis: EPA Ignored Scientific Research Showing Monsanto’s Glyphosate Causes Cancer
Originally published in GMO Science. Cancers may take decades to develop, so they are often not seen until later in life. However, childhood cancers have risen globally by 13% over the past two decades, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the World Health Organization’s cancer research agency. Childhood leukemia is still… Read More Childhood Leukemia, the Microbiome, and Glyphosate: A Doctor’s Perspective

The following article by Dr. Ramon Seidler, PhD. is the article on the dangers of Roundup that we should re-post, download, and share with anyone who still supports the use of this dangerous herbicide or the GMO plants that are engineered to be sprayed with it. It also exposes how the US Environmental Protection Agency… Read More The BEST Article on Glyphosate with Comments from Jeffrey Smith
These best-sellers were reportedly found to contain higher than average traces of glyphosate – a widely used weedkiller used on commercially genetically modified (GM) crops. The results were uncovered by campaigning groups Food Democracy Now and The Detox Project. According to the report, the herbicide residues were found in cookies, crackers, popular cold cereals and… Read More Glyphosate in Breakfast Cereal But US EPA Postpones Review
Although correlation does not prove causation, a huge increase in the incidence and prevalence of disease and chronic health conditions over the last twenty years closely parallels the increased use of genetically engineered soy and corn, as well as the application of Roundup herbicide on these crops. (Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup.) Thanks to… Read More Correlation Of Rising Incidence Of Diseases And Chronic Health Conditions With GMOs And Glyphosate
