Boycott, ban, criminalize Roundup

Glyphosate is the primary active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup.

There is no official figure for the amount of glyphosate used every year in the world. One estimate? 650,000 tonnes, which works out to a staggering 1.3 billion pounds.

Manufactured by Monsanto and a number of other companies, glyphosate use spiked after the introduction of Monsanto’s GMO Roundup Ready food crops in the 1990s.

Here is a sprinkle of information about glyphosate. To say it’s sobering is a vast understatement. Keep in mind that the medical cartel, which would call a mother’s touch a disease if it could get away with it, has no name for any disease or disorder caused by glyphosate. In other words, the cartel doesn’t acknowledge its existence. Who will acknowledge its existence?

One: Scientific American, June 23, 2009, “Weed-whacking herbicide proves deadly to human cells,” by Crystal Gammon:

“Glyphosate, Roundup’s active ingredient, is the most widely used herbicide in the United States. About 100 million pounds are applied to U.S. farms and lawns every year, according to the EPA.

“Until now, most health studies have focused on the safety of glyphosate, rather than the mixture of ingredients found in Roundup. But in the new study, scientists found that Roundup’s inert ingredients amplified the toxic effect on human cells—even at concentrations much more diluted than those used on farms and lawns.

“One specific inert ingredient, polyethoxylated tallowamine, or POEA, was more deadly to human embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells than the herbicide itself – a finding the researchers call ‘astonishing.’

“‘This clearly confirms that the [inert ingredients] in Roundup formulations are not inert,’ wrote the study authors from France’s University of Caen. ‘Moreover, the proprietary mixtures available on the market could cause cell damage and even death [at the] residual levels’ found on Roundup-treated crops, such as soybeans, alfalfa and corn, or lawns and gardens.”

Two: Reuters, 4/25/13, “Heavy use of herbicide Roundup linked to health dangers—US study,” by Corey Gillam:

“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.

“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.”

Three: A study: “An acute exposure to glyphosate-based herbicide alters aromatase levels in in testis and sperm nuclear quality”; Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology, v.38. Issue 1, July 2014:

“We investigated the effects of a glyphosate-based herbicide after an 8-day exposure of adult rats… These results suggest changes in androgen/estrogen balance and in sperm nuclear quality… The repetition of exposures of this herbicide could alter the mammalian reproduction.”

Four: Truthout, Oct. 6, 2014, “Monsanto’s Roundup linked to cancer,” by Jeff Ritterman, MD:

“Roundup is now heavily sprayed in what is known as the ‘Soy Republic’, an area of Latin America larger than the state of California. This region has undergone a profound transformation since genetically modified (GM) crops were first introduced in 1996. Some 125 million acres in Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Uruguay, and Paraguay are now devoted to GM soy production.

“Dr. Medardo Avila Vazquez, a pediatrician specializing in environmental health, explained his concerns:

“‘The change in how agriculture is produced has brought, frankly, a change in the profile of diseases. We’ve gone from a pretty healthy population to one with a high rate of cancer, birth defects, and illnesses seldom seen before. What we have complained about for years was confirmed and especially what doctors say about the sprayed towns and areas affected by industrial agriculture. Cancer cases are multiplying as never before in areas with massive use of pesticides.’

“Much the same was found in Chaco, Argentina’s poorest province. In 2012, two villages were compared, the heavily sprayed farming village of Avia Terai and the non-sprayed ranching village of Charadai. In the farming village, 31 percent of residents had a family member with cancer while only 3 percent of residents in the ranching village had one.”

Five:, 8/5/2005, “Monsanto’s Roundup Killing Frogs, Amphibians Worldwide”:

“The most striking result from the experiments was that a chemical designed to kill plants killed 98 percent of all tadpoles within three weeks and 79 percent of all frogs within one day” — University of Pittsburgh researcher, Rick Relyea

Six: Global Research, July 5, 2014, “Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide and regulators ‘with something to hide’”, by Colin Todhunter:

“Last year, Friends of the Earth (FoE) and GM Freeze commissioned a study based on urine samples from volunteers in 18 countries across Europe. It found that on average 44 percent of samples contained glyphosate. The proportion of positive samples varied between countries, with Malta, Germany,the UK and Poland having the most positive tests, and lower levels detected in Macedonia and Switzerland. All the volunteers who provided samples lived in cities, and none had handled or used glyphosate products in the run-up to the tests.”

“In Mississippi, 75 percent of air and rain sample contained levels of glyphosate that could have serious physiological consequences for humans.”

“Claire Robinson from GM Watch notes that earlier this year a group of Chinese food safety volunteers submitted a request to China’s Ministry of Agriculture to disclose the study that justified issuing the safety certificate for the import into China of Monsanto’s Roundup. Writing on the GM Watch website, she says:

“‘The Ministry replied that Roundup was registered in China in 1988 based on a toxicology test report issued by a testing company called Younger Laboratories in St Louis, Missouri. The test was an acute exposure toxicity test (such tests last a maximum of a few days), with Roundup being given to rats by mouth and applied to the skin of rabbits. It claimed to find no effect on the eyes or skin, and no allergy. The volunteers asked the Ministry to release the study, and the Ministry in turn asked Monsanto. Monsanto replied that the study constituted its own commercial secret, adding that the company had never disclosed the study anywhere in the world and did not agree to disclose it now. The volunteers are appealing against the decision.’”

One of the implications of these six citations: Glyphosate, as an ingredient of Roundup and other herbicides, drifts on the wind, and its dangerous effects are felt far from agriculture centers.

As long as Monsanto is permitted to produce GMO seeds that are engineered to be immune to Roundup, the tonnage of glyphosate loosed on the world population will continue to escalate.

Properly thought of, glyphosate is a chemical-warfare agent.

The labeling of GMOs, as a response to the threat, is too little, too late. It would be akin to requiring enemy planes, loaded with bombs, to display an insignia of the country’s air force as it invades.

  1. Don’t forget we found Gyphosate in our tap water and urine 3-10X higher than Europe’s levels in water or urine and in breastmilk here in the USA 760-1600 X higher than is allowed in the drinking water in Europe. Our babies are consuming an antibiotic which destryos gut bacteria….1 out of 2 of our children have a chronic illness…. and our govenrment is not acting on this as a national crisis?

  2. brusplace says:

    An unspeakable evil is being forced on the world. Is it just profit motivated or is there an even more SINister plan behind it?

  3. From Québec says:

    Jon, you often write about Imagination and how to create new realities, especially in your new blog « Outside the Reality Machine »

    People are starting to think that only the Elites have imagination. But imagination to destroy this World.

    They constantly invent new technologies that are worse than the previous ones. There is no end to their madness destructive/creative skills.

    What does that say for us?

    Since we don’t seem to be able to fight them through corrupted Courts, couldn’t we invent something to annulled the effects of their toxic products?

    Surely the Elites know how to protect themselves from this madness although the Roundup are blown all over the world by winds.

    What do they know that we don’t?

    Are we so vulnerable that we think we can’t beat them? We have proven to ourselves many times that we can beat them.

    Here is a few examples:

    – They poison our waters, we invent Water filtration kits and distilled water.
    – They invent wi-fi to irradiate us, we invent shields that blocks radiation.
    – They spy on us, we invent encryption or search engines like “Start Page”.
    – They want to ban guns, we invent 3D printing machines and make our own guns
    -They invent non labelling GMO, we create “Organic” labellings.
    – Etc.

    If we cannot beat them in Courts, let’s beat them with our imagination.
    These bastard degenerated inbreed criminals will not win this game.

  4. FredT says:

    Great story. And reply from Zen. The problem is that the whole system is broken. (No surprise to readers of this blog.). If glyphosate is banned, atrazine will replace it and that is even more toxic. What is a concerned citizen to do?

  6. middleway says:

    It is very rare that a single chemical/compound produced and introduced into the environment produces a biological reaction of a great enough magnitude to be quickly and definitively defined by scientific research to be a toxic bio-hazard. Since the early 1900s, literally thousands of chemical and compounds have been created that have contaminated the environment. The adverse biological reaction to a few of these chemical/compounds became so obvious they were banned.

    Currently, coming to the fore of independent researchers, is not a focus on any single chemical/compound, but rather the synergistic biological impacts associated with the recombination of two or more of these chemical/compounds. The very limited early research within the synergistic recombination arena is beginning to paint a very dark and apocalyptic picture.

    In the highly regulated/controlled bastion of ‘scientific research’, funding access and the ability to publish research results is limited to nonexistent. If specific avenues of scientific research are not pursued, no research results are published, no remedy/solution can be defined and no corrective recommendations can be indicated or published. This renders our highly regimented/controlled health care industry with virtually no information to base an accurate medical diagnosis or corrective recommendation. In other words, if you find yourself within the grasp of one of the new age and inadequately researched/defined medical conditions, there will be pharmaceuticals to alleviate your symptoms and pain along your slow and downward slide.

    A limited view into the reality of synergistic recombination and its potential biological impacts:

    Is maybe “global warming” (whoops, I mean, “climate change”) the big distraction to keep the people from thinking about global poisoning?

      No, but it does supply the airborne aluminum nano-particulates necessary to initiate the aluminum/glyphosate synergistic recombination that results in gross mitochondrial damage via a severe inflammatory response in those with a suppressed immune system.

      The same destructive technological cancer going metastatic. “The Conquest of the Land Through 7,000 Years,” a study by Loudermilk for the USDA done in response to the Dust Bowl, documented disastrous desertification throughout most of the world through human actions, even when technically the climate was essentially the same in many places. C.S. Lewis and Jacques Ellul both diagnosed the same disease as man’s disire to control and supplant nature, including human nature. Polluting and destroying the natural world, the creeping totalitarian market and state, the destruction of traditional cultures and values are all symptoms of the same disease. .

      • theodorewesson says:

        Just to add,… There also seems to be — with the introduction of “commercial (Telsa) AC power distribution” — a bad side-effect was introducded into farming, that, IMO, was made worse by the introduction ‘chemical fertilzers’ (80 years ago?) as an attempt to solve the problem introduced,…

        Mineral depletion of the soil (and ocean animal die off!!!) started in earnest in North America 110 years ago due to the damming up of rivers for the building out of “Tesla AC power distribution”! The mineral silt from the river floods was no longer reaching the nearby farmland (and the oceans). And, electricity to the home did away with the burning of wood for heat ; wood ash was very coveted for farming — due to its mineral content (look up US Patent #1 (as in the US patent number one)). This was a double whammy on our health!

        The underlying natrualpathic science behind this is that… what are called genetic disorders are due not to gentics but due to mineral dificiencies (in plant life, in animal life, and in human life). It has been shown through nutritional science that trace minerals act as NECESSSARY ‘co-factors’ in the ‘bio chemical reations’ which take place at the cellular and DNA/RNA levels. By NOT supplying our bodies with the ‘co-factors’ (trace minerals and other vitamins and certains fats) (like not having the proper amount of oil in your car), the cells, the DNA, the RNA are simply just not able to carry out their job properly…. and, over time, that causes chronic disease in a person — toxic chemical/poisons in the body notwithstanding. (e.g., it has been shown that ‘cystic fibrosis’ is due to a selenium difficiency)

        Ask any animal husbandry farmer about mineral dificiencies in their animals ; they know about mineral supplementation for their animals because when they do it, it prevents costly vet visits. Medical doctors could learn a wealth of information from Vets!

        One has to supplement daily with 30 nutrients and 60 trace minerals daily (and filter ones water) — (see, for example: “Beyond Tangy Tangerine 2.0 is the most advanced multi-vitamin mineral complex to date that provides you the highest quality essential nutrients that your body needs for optimal health. Synergizing cofactors ensure maximum nutrient absorption and benefits.)


  8. Well done Jon…one could’nt more accurate…and may I add…labelling the bombs as highly explosive, and likely to cause fire and destruction of property and human life.
    This war against nature, is absurd, and a madness…we are going to loose it… most of us are not capable of even imagining the reality of the shit storm that is heading this way…you might blame it on the invention of the modern ego. And the fixation with the conceit of it is a blindfold in this particular paradigm.

    There should be benefits from taking calcium d-glucarate—reduced L-glutathione—selenium—and cilantro with chlorella, and fresh lemon in plain water, in terms of detoxification. Beta glucan, ascorbyl palmitate version of vitamin C, B vitamins and colostrum as supplementary to those. Dow Chemical and Du Pont are the two biggest groundwater polluters and completely apart from Monsanto, there is an enormous mountain of worry caused by these chemical giants. Bill Gates likely response to this Monsanto issue—turn everyone into a pin cushion for even riskier vaccinations. I recently recovered from a nasty infection using only plain, cheap garlic tablets. Meantime, all the TV station broadcasters are hollering we should run to get flu shots.

  11. TR M says:

    Yes to all. Start by not buying it and not buying anything sprayed with it (GMO and dessicated wheat). When you cost them profits they will stop using it. It is something we can all do immediately that will have a huge impact.

    Next try to get it banned. Even if the evil sobs win it will cost them money and get the issue more publicity.

    Lastly try to get criminal proceedings against them for crimes against humanity, genocide etc.

    Terrific post. After 2 -3 years now of avoiding GMOs (hidden corn derived in everything!) and crops like wheat and non-organic sugar cane that are highly treated with Round up, my daughter’s health has mostly stabilized and her chronic kidney disease has been halted if not improved. Her nephrologist said based on the biopsy it would be a first for her to see it improve… She has a lot of health issues but the ONLY thing that halted progression or provided improvement and relief has been complete avoidance. Round up/Gmo’s are truly killing us (of course the zillion other toxins contribute). We were a Mcd’s and twinkie family 3 years ago, now I buy my gluten free organic grains, and grind it myself. Filled my flowerbeds and yards with food I know will be safe. It makes a bit difference. Not healed, but healing. Thanks again for the great post!

    I would like to add the word, “BUY-NOT” alongside ‘boycott,’ as I like it’s directness of meaning. In fact, I would be inclined to replace the term ‘boycott’ with BUY-NOT.

  14. Deci bells says:

    Who do you blame?
    The idiot spraying this (the so called farmer)?
    Or the crook selling it?
    Answer both.
    Actually the industrial farmer is worse.
    There is no gun to his head to apply this to his land.
    Monsanto is helpless if the farmer actually farmed.
    Monsanto did not kill my bees.
    The farmer who sprayed Monsanto killed my bee hive!
    I applaud organic farmers as for the others they are ??
    Beats me. I don’t have a label for thrash.

    This larger point of awareness has just now more firmly clarified itself in my awareness, though I’m sure many are already aware of it at many different levels, and to varying degrees of awareness of relevance in the macrocosm: the imminent global corporate military-industrial petro-chemical ecocidal food source catastrophe we currently face…is an INEVITABLE CONSEQUENCE AND NEAR CONCLUSION of a prior choice in human society, relating to a cancerously domineering human element which identified itself with AN IGNORANT FEAR-BASED EGOMANIACAL MATERIALIST PERCEPTION OF EXISTENCE. A prime directive in the agenda of this cancerous element in human society is to remove living beings from their naturally close family kinship with the land, the earth, the water, and sky.

    Our current immanently catastrophic scenario is the quintessential human object lesson arising from a terribly unfortunate dearth of reflective wholistic intelligence, the intelligence which completely understands the why and wherefore behind some historical master teachers’ assertions: “Love of money is the root of all kinds of evil;” “One cannot serve both the god of eternal unified Reality Awareness/Life, and also attempt to serve the gods of mammon (i.e., the temporal and therefore false “values” of the world, such as material wealth, status, power/authority, alleged exclusive ‘ownership’ of the divinely sourced gifts of life…”), for such attempted ‘dual service’ is like trying to ride on the backs of two mules/asses headed in opposite directions.” “For what profit have you if you gain [ownership/control of] the ENTIRE WORLD, but have thereby sacrificed the peace and wholeyness of your eternal soul?!

    In this contemporary frame now unfolding, we are privy to the disastrous consequences of having not understood the dire necessity for heeding and applying the words of our master teachers of yesterday, of today, and most importantly, of our own inner wisdom connection.. For it is due to all who have ignorantly, blindly served the satanic fascist zionist materialist militarist mammonist//capitalist structure and all its concomitant insanity, inanitities, inequalities, absurdity, atrocities…that we are now presented the ever increasing possibility of our mutual biological annihilation.

    More specifically, when invaders and conquerors of various lands began to build their ego-empires by harassing, massacring, genociding, and conquering indigenous persons, families, and peoples in order to gratify their ignorant ego-based desires for increased acquisition and control of wealth/lands/resources, they denied and disrupted the original natural universal way/scheme/principle/law of perpetual life, a way of life in which every being had abundance (just enough for their actual needs), interacting and complying with the principles of nature on a relatively humble, practical scale. And all life unfolded in relative perpetual balance, in natural sustainability. But…when the satanic ignoramus ass-wipes began ripping away the natural inhabitants/stewards from their rightful postions on, and in direct relation with the land…all hell broke loose.

    Which brings us to now…a time in which the corporate commercial and governmental tyrants claim ownership and control of vast tracts of land and water resources, yet have absolutely no possibility to properly, directly, intimately, carefully, and wisely steward these grossly vast parcels of appropriated earth, acquisitioned as holdings in various ego-maniacs’ empires. Concomitantly, the mass of humans no longer are allowed any home/land to call their own, and upon which to freely, autonomously sustain themselves in ongoing divine balance with nature. Such is the historical, economical, and political course which has inevitably brought us to the brink of GMO enslavement and self-destruction…all because—in contrast to the earlier ways of life in which each family had its own plot for which to be directly responsible in a sustained reciprocal life-supporting relationship with nature—entities who now hold vast muderously-gained tracts of land can’t possibly handle all their weeding by hand, nor tend responsibly to all other aspects of aware co-relationship with earth….and so are filled by an urgent sense of need to upend and subvert all the innate laws of nature and life, rather than themselves cooperating with the perrennially existing laws/principles of whole and sustainable life.

    A huge, integral portion of this object lesson is: If our forebears and their now contemporary corporate high-powered military copycat descendants had not been so satanically driven to massacre and relocate indigenous peoples, we could have acquired instead their simple profound wisdom in regard to living carefully, awarefully, rightfully, perpetually on this planet.
