If you have been living under a rock this last year then you might not have seen the headlines regarding the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Report that stated that Monsanto’s flagship product Roundup, “PROBABLY” causes cancer!
That is a pretty scary thing to hear seeing that it has been sprayed on and contaminated a good percentage of the worlds farm land. Polluting the soil and water of our living planet for over 40 years! Roundup (glysophate) when sprayed on living plants inhibits the plants ability to absorb and uptake critical nutrients (disrupts the shikimate pathway) which eventually leads to the malnourishment and death of the plant.
Monsanto has played GOD and genetically modified a bunch of different staple crops for the purpose of patenting their seeds (Soy, Corn, Canola, Alfalfa, Beets, Papaya to name a few). These plants are genetically modified so that when sprayed with Roundup it’s death cycle only kills the weeds and not the genetically modified plants.
Even with all the information that is coming out now about the toxicity of Roundup, Monsanto still argues that Roundup isn’t harmful to human beings because the mechanism that kills the plants (disruption of the Shikimate pathway), isn’t present in the human body.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. You see our bodies are home to trillions of precious micro-organisms that are responsible for us maintaining optimal health. These critical bacteria synthesis essential aromatic amino acids (tyrosine, tryptophan and phenylalanine), aid in digestion, aid in the absorption of vitamins and minerals and detoxifying all types of toxins and carcinogens from the body. These bacteria (probiotics) are also responsible for roughly 80-90% of our bodies immune function.
What Monsanto has failed to tell us all is that the Shikimate pathway is present in these life giving gut bacteria. When you consume foods grown and sprayed with glysophate you inhibit your gut bacteria’s ability to perform the essential functions that your body needs to obtain optimal health. You open yourself up to an array of degenerative disease such as IBS, Crohn’s, depression, dementia, cancer and many others.
The downfall of the Monsanto chemical empire could go down in history as having had its official launch in 2015, the year that its flagship herbicide Roundup was found by the World Health Organization (WHO) to be a probable cause of cancer in humans. 2015 is also the year that it was revealed that Monsanto has been hiding the dirty details of this deadly chemical formula from regulatory authorities for nearly four decades.
An independent research scientist by the name of Anthony Samsel procured some 15,000 pages worth of documents from Monsanto covering the full gamut of research on Roundup, the most widely used herbicide in the world, and the information contained in those pages isn’t pretty. In essence, Monsanto has known full well for nearly 40 years that Roundup and glyphosate are linked to organ damage and cancer, and yet this information was withheld from public purview as “proprietary trade secrets.”
As a member of the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), Samsel has spent much of his career life studying the toxicological effects and bioactivity of Roundup. Based on a cohort of scientific data, he has come to the conclusion that Monsanto purposely failed to submit to regulators evidence showing that glyphosate isn’t as safe or biodegradable as the company claims.
If you are eating Genetically Modified foods or conventionally grown produce that is sprayed with herbicides and pesticides you are putting yourself and your family at risk for developing cancers and all forms of degenerative diseases. Today’s statistics state that 1 in every 3 females and 1 in every 2 males will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime. There is a valid reason for this and it isn’t genetics… The biggest reason has to do with the environmental toxins that we put in and on our bodies on a daily basis. Roundup probably being the king of them all, or at least the one that is likely doing the most damage.
Educate yourself and don’t let yourself or your family become a statistic!

The only way we are going to be able to overcome the Greedy Corporate Biotech giants is by educating the masses and demanding GMO labeling. If we have an educated populous and we know what is in our food we will make better choices. This will force the corporations to evolve with the times or fade away like distant memory.
When you really think about it, it is pretty insane that we are letting chemical companies create and supply our food. If is not?
