Zika? Monsanto’s Roundup associated with smaller heads

Zika? Monsanto’s Roundup associated with smaller heads

by Jon Rappoport

January 31, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

This is my fourth article on the Zika scam. A virus is being blamed for destruction that actually comes from other forces.

In a previous piece, I listed the top six causes for what is happening in the center of the storm, Brazil, where babies are being born with smaller heads (microcephaly) and brain damage. One of those causes is pesticides/herbicides.

Here I’m presenting information from an animal study that implicates glyphosate, the central ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide, Roundup, in microcephaly and cranial malformations.

One of authors of this study is the late Argentine researcher, Andres Carrasco, who was subjected to scientific censorship and threats during his career.

The study was published on May 20, 2010 (Chem. Res. Toxicol.). It is titled: “Glyphosate-Based Herbicides (GBH) Produce Teratogenic Effects on Vertebrates by Impairing Retinoic Acid Signalling.” The study provoked a highly critical response from Monsanto, to which author Carrasco replied in kind, remarking that agenda-driven corporate-dominated research blankets the landscape, whereas truly independent inquiry gets short shrift.

The researchers in the study used xenopus laevis (frog) and chicken embryos. Administering glyphosate to chicken embryos produced “reduction of optic vesicles” and “microcephaly,” which is the key deformation in the so-called “Zika virus outbreak.”

The authors write, “The direct effect of glyphosate [on the embryos]… opens concerns about the clinical findings from human offspring in populations exposed to GBH [glyphosate-based herbicides] in agricultural fields.”

And if there is any doubt that the authors are talking about the birth defects now being (falsely) attributed to the Zika virus, they follow up with this comment: “There is growing evidence raising concerns about the effects of GBH [glyphosate-based herbicides] on people living in areas where herbicides are intensely used. Women exposed during pregnancy to herbicides delivered offspring with congenital malformations, including microcephaly [small heads], anencephaly [missing major parts of brain and skull in embryos], and cranial malformations.”

power outside the matrix

As I keep pointing out—and this is based on 30 years of investigation into phony epidemics—“the virus” is the best false cover story in the world. When researchers and government officials announce that so-and-so virus is loose, causing maiming and death, people automatically stand up and salute.

The cover story is used to obscure what is actually causing great harm, and when the cause is a major, major corporation, the propaganda effort to distract the population swings into high gear.

Monsanto knows how to protect itself. But the veneer is peeling from their operation. Millions upon millions of people now know what the company has been doing all these years.

In March 2015, the World Health Organization announced that glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, is a probable human carcinogen. A Swiss group, the International Society of Doctors for the Environment, sent out a demand “to immediately and permanently ban, with no exceptions, the production, trade and use in all the EU territory of glyphosate-based herbicides.” And nearly two years ago, Brazil’s Federal Public Prosecutor asked for a ban on all glyphosate use in the country.

Now we have the birth-defect horror in Brazil.

That nation uses more pesticides than any country in the world. Soy is planted on more acres than any other crop—a testament to the strength of Monsanto’s operation. Soy means Roundup use.

Roundup means destruction.

    Brazil prosecutors seek $16 million from pesticide makers
    Business | Tue May 19, 2015
    RIO DE JANEIRO | By Paulo Prada



    Prosecutors are seeking the damages from Inpev, an industry group established by manufacturers to meet the disposal rules, and the makers of specific pesticides whose containers were found at the facility during a February inspection.

    Those manufacturers, prosecutors said, include the Brazilian units of BASF, DuPont, Monsanto, Nufarm, Syngenta, Adama, FMC and Nortox.


    During the inspection in Sapezal, a town deep in Brazil’s soy belt, prosecutors said workers were handling pesticide containers without proper cleaning facilities and safety equipment. The collection point, they said, gathers about 600 tons of pesticide containers annually.

    The charges come as scientists, regulators, public health officials and consumers increasingly complain that Brazil’s ascent as an agricultural powerhouse has led to unsafe and excessive use of pesticides.

    Reuters reported in April that at least four foreign manufacturers sell pesticides in Brazil that they are not allowed to sell in their home markets.

      Rains to improve conditions in Brazil soy belt
      By Reuters Media on Jan 4, 2016



      [Mato Grosso state’s agricultural] institute expects a crop of 28 million tons from Mato Grosso, which generally produces around 30 percent of Brazil’s soybeans, making it the country’s top growing state.

      Most analysts expect a record national soybean crop surpassing 100 million tons for the first time in Brazil, the world’s No. 2 producer and top exporter.


      “AGR Brasil believes that only a major weather scare during the critical month of January can endanger a crop below 98 million tons,” [AGR Resources President Pedro Dejneka] said in a report, calling the possibility of a first crop above 100 million tons “alive and well.”


      The Chicago-based Commodity Weather Group said on Monday the far south, where 10 percent of Brazil’s soybeans and corn are produced and flooding had been a concern, would largely stay on the drier side this week.

      Pesticide use increased 162% in Brazil as GM soy corporations subjugated country to agrochemical imperialism
      August 28th, 2015, by Greg White



      In 2009, Brazil earned the title of the world’s largest consumer of pesticides, superseding the United States. Many of the pesticides used in Brazil are banned in more developed countries due to health concerns. Approximately four major pesticide manufactures, including U.S. FMC Corp., Denmark’s Cheminova A/S, Helm AG of Germany and Swiss agribusiness Syngenta AG, sell products in Brazil that cannot be sold where they are produced.


      An estimated 22 of 50 active ingredients used in Brazil are banned in others countries. Some of the pesticides used include acephate, acifluorfen, cyanazine, endosulfan, parathion-methyl, permethrin, profenofos, sethoxydim, thiodicarb, tolifluamide and triazophos, to name just a few.


      The large-scale use of pesticides is driven by the country’s increased use of genetically modified seeds. Since 2005, the amount of land being used to grow GM seeds has tripled, from 9.4 million to over 32 million hectares.(2)

      Biotech companies originally promised that GM seeds would be more resistant to pests, thereby decreasing the amount of pesticides used on crops. In reality, GM seeds have fueled the evolutionary arms race by making crops more resistant to pesticides. As a result, GM crops require not just more pesticides but pesticides that are more potent than those traditionally used.

    Jon, I deeply appreciate your blogs, but it is pretty clear that the Bill Gates administered tDAP vaccine (which was given to every single mother whose child had this birth defect) plus the gmo mosquitoes released in the areas at that time were responsible. Not even Roundup can cause a 13,000 FOLD increase of a particular disease in less than one year. This was ADMINISTERED. Plus, I live in one of the most Roundup saturated areas of the United States, and my yard is FULL of frogs, salamanders, turtles, bees and gazillions of other pollinators, and the beekeeper across the street who has been supplying honey in this area for 40 years says his main problem is mites. So, my own evidence with my own eyes tells me Roundup does not “kill off bees”. I HATE Roundup, dont get me wrong, and it isnt easy growing organically in this culture, but I dont buy a LOT of the Roundup rhetoric. I think it is a deliberate disctration- handing us little plastic pails to play with while they go about their business with impunity.

    • Bullshit you can’t prove a fuckin word you say…I live in Saskatchewan that’s Round-up central, I’ve seen a hundred fold flock of sparrows fall out if the sky because of round-up sprayed from a helicopter. I’ve seen geese falling from it use . Every farm dog around here is called lumpy. And your telling me is does’nt kill bees.

      Bees are being fucked up from Neonicotinoids not mites, mites will stress bees, but if they are healthy enough they can deal with them… they will not cause the colony to collapse… kinda like the mites in your eyelashes or in your ears. And from the way your talking…sound like you have a lot of them in there.
      They don’t kill you do they….mites in you eyelashes.

      Neonicotinoids… Round-up and EMF are the real problem. Neonicotinoids will cause bees to abandon the hive and seek out plants with that pesticide, they become addicted, that’s how the pesticide works.

      Mosquitos are a slight of hand to protect a trillion dollars in agri-chems business, and make even more money on a vaccine for Zika..but you keep on drinking that kool-aid sunshine.
      Vaccinations stress immune systems.

      Or could it be the ole Hegelian dialectic.

      Quit talking for a while and do sone reading…



      • Scott Westfall says:

        Get a grip people. Glyphosphate is one of the most thoroughly studied compounds in the world. All indicating it is safe for mammals. Its half life in the environment is short. It targets a specific enzyme step found only in plants. It has been in use since 1974 and in no country where it was introduced was there an increase in microcephaly. Roundup has been used for several decades in Brazil, how could it be related to the current spike in microcephaly. (remember its short half life)

        Meanwhile, nearly every single women in Brazil that has had a child with microcephaly also had antibodies to Zika. There was a dramatic increase in microcephaly with the arrival of Zika. As other countries in South and Middle America have been invaded by Zika the microcephaly rate has increased. Recent studies with rats have shown that the Zika virus population explodes in the fetuses brain, resulting in microcephaly.

        Your campaign to indict pesticides for every harm in the world is tiresome. Quit listening to rabble-rousers like John Rappoport.

        I’ll not defend every pesticide used in Brazil, but this accusation against glyphosphate for microcephaly is preposterous.

        • @Scott Westfall

          “Get a grip people.”….yes I agree. we need to get a grip of the untold dangers and misinformation/disinformation travelling the streets and avenues of the Internet. Ignorant individuals like yourself not having a clue about they are talking about. But knee-jerkin, and following the consensus.

          ‘GLYPHOSATE’ as opposed to Glyphoshate which seems to me to be more syntaxly sound to the actualities of this extremely dangerous, cancer causing broad-spectrum herbicide. And as used here in Saskatchewan, as a late stage, crop desiccant. And what is a dessicant?

          A desiccant is a hygroscopic substance, that induces and sustains the absorption of water. In particular to the desiccation of say…Canola (Rape seed). It is vitally important that canola remain extremely dry as around these parts moisture in stored seed is the cause of majority of all storage bin fires and explosions.

          Glyphosate is sprayed on the crop at a late state of growth to speed the death and dryness of the crop to be harvested, So actually the crop in soaked in Round-up (Glyphosate) pre-harvest. And then goes to contaminate storage bins.

          So not only is Round-Up (glyphosate) hygroscopic, it is a killer of ground probiotic, bacteria, mycorrhiza. And in that function is the true nature of it efficiency against broad spectrum herbs, and weeds. In this function the plant’s ability to work through symbiosis with these organisms to gain nutrition and vital organic fertilizing agents as nitrogen, sulphates, phosphonates and micro-nutrients. And this is a secondary condition, wherein the initial spray lays on the plant cutting it off from its natural life forces, of photosynthesis, moisture and nutrition through enzymic action.

          It has been determined through study that a greater amount of Round-Up (Glyphosate) is making its way into our food. The accumulative effects of this poison are detrimental to healthy stomach probiotic at the very least. Hundreds of products in stores are contaminated with glyphosate, and their direct relationship between that fact and the growing epidemic of stomach and bowel and urinary disorders. Glyphosate is inteferring with stomach and bowel probiotice.

          And why is stomach probiotic important, because through the stomach and probiotic action, health is maintained in humans. The serotonin that feeds your brain is manufactured in your stomach. healthy stomach flora aides and in some cases is vitaly responsible for the uptake of vitamins and nutrients which are necessary to a healthy immune system and primarily a healthy body. When Round-up enters the human gut, it’s hygroscopy has not ceased in its chemical action.

          The myth that Round-Up dissipates in the environment is complete hogwash. There is a cumulative effects of glyphosate in the ground aground waters, and potency in the ground has been astounding high well over one year after application.

          The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, reported in March 2015, and classified, that glyphosate, based on epidemiological studies, animal studies, and in vitro studies was probably carcinogenic in humans.

          The Seralini GMO and Round-Up studies in Italy in 2015 found after extensive research that the herbicide Round-up was a cancer causing chemical; rats in the study developed tumors the size of golf balls.

          Stephanie Seneff a researcher at MIT has found Glyphosate as a major cause of Autism. That is a direct cause of Autism. Dr Stephanie Seneff and Dr Anthony Samsel, in, reviewing research that was hidden by Monsanto, and which gave direct evidence that glyphosate was found to be responsible and a major cause of bladder, kidney, pancreatic cancers.

          Some of the facts of the Seneff/Samsel review of the suppressed Monsanto cancer evidence:

          “Monsanto’s studies showed that glyphosate readily reacts with nitrogen oxide compounds to form a toxic substance called nitrosoglyphosate, which can cause cancer in at least 40 different animal species, including higher primates.

          Samsel and Seneff hypothesize that a non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which is linked to excess fructose, stems from the disrupted gut metabolism and blocked shikimate pathway that is a metabolic route used by our bacteria, and the disruption is caused by glyphosate consumption. Fructose should be digested by the gut, but in a disrupted metabolism it is instead delivered to the liver and converted to fat. Inflammation and metabolic disorders are characteristic features of diabetes and obesity, which carry dramatically higher risks of cancer, especially for the liver and gastrointestinal tract.

          They further theorized that pancreatic cancer and insulin-deficient diabetes are linked with glyphosate’s ability to chelate manganese, and that chronic kidney disease is linked with glyphosate causing the production of excess hydrogen peroxide, which attacks key proteins.

          There is an 80% increase in melanoma associated with glyphosate use, which may be caused by glyphosate’s disruption of the shikimate pathway in our gut microbes: impairment of the supply of key aromatic amino acids, tryptophan and tyrosine.

          Glyphosate stimulates the growth of human breast cancer cells, specifically the cells that are hormone-dependent, and is controlled by glyphosate’s ability to act as an estrogen agent.” -IRT (Institute for Responsible Technology)

          Crop collapse is now becoming a new problem for industrial level agriculture as over use of perticides and herbicides like Glyphosate are killing the ground and causing the ground probiotic to collapse and thus is followed by a the crop. Stories like this are a highly suppressed in main stream media.

          Brazil has been the dumping ground for many, many pesticides and herbicides banned in other countries. In fact Brazil is the second largest consumer of pesticide and herbicide. The accumulative effect of so many chemicals used in these processes of farming and their recombination in the environment, to create even more deadly chemicals is beyond belief. Brazil is drowning in toxic pesticide and herbicide, and with no real lawas to protect workers, diseases are becoming epidemic. The area that is ground zero of Zika is an area growing sugar cane for ethanol. Becaus it is not being comsumed as a food places it in a categaory were many banned pesticides and herbicides are used. Chemicals like Atrazine, and malathion…glyphosate.

          Antibodies of Zika?…it would hard to find anyone on planet earth who does not have antibodies for Zika. It is the most benign of viruses. Seven out of ten cases show no symptoms what-so -ever. Absolutely asymptomatic. The cases that do show symptoms, are mainly headache, slight fever, nausea, vomiting…symtoms no greater than a mild flu. Within three to ten days the condition and symptoms are gone… Zika in brazil has taken the focus away from outrageous use of Toxic chemicals in a booming agricultural Brazil. Poor farm hands, on corporate industrial farms are without adequate protection against these toxic and cancer causing chemicals.

          And explosion of Zika in fetuses?….are your serious? Are you brain dead?

          Strangely Monsanto own people, research scientists and lab assistants are never caught not using full protective haz-mat suits, protective rubber gloves, footwear and full face masks, while spraying these toxic cancer chemicals.

    • INGAORAMA says:

      They want to make this Zika virus s next pandemic hoax so they can for sure bring forth vaccine who will for sure make the depulation cut down the Bill Gates way – as he say in a conference for his elite friends ,, if we do a rely good job in the healthcare (=hell-they-care) and vaccines, then we can lower the population number!”

  3. The connection still appears to be with the vaccine, Jon.


    Could there be something in that that mimics the glyphosate ingredient & the mosquitos are a “false flag” deliberately released to pervert Monsanto’s exposure?


  4. INGAORAMA says:

    I think this is too much coincidence that the Minister of Health in Brazil sent out in late 2014 that this vaccine Tdap should be mandatory for all pregnant woman from beginning of 2015 and before week 22 of pregnancy..


    Taken from here http://www.trinfinity8.com/zika-virus-mosquitos/

    In late 2014, the Brazilian minister of health announced that a new Tdap shot would be mandatory for all expectant mothers starting in 2015. Since it’s mandatory, mothers with birth defect babies received this newly formulated vaccine while pregnant. The timeliness of the Tdap vaccine and the sudden rise in birth defects is more than just a little coincidental. The consequences of this untested vaccine is being swept under the rug. Which brings us once again to Bill Gates, the King of Eugenics and Vaccines.

    While the Brazilian government rushes to blame the Zika virus for this huge rise in abnormal birth defects, causation remains unclear. Only a small number of babies with birth defects, who died, had the virus in their brain or in the mother’s placenta. This means a large number of the babies who died had no Zika virus in their brain. Hard to blame Zika then, which has been around since before 1948 and has never been known to cause birth defects and/or death. In fact, Zika makes only one in five people get “mildly” sick with flu-like symptoms, with no symptoms at all in 4 out of 5 people. So why are they quick to blame a generally benign Zika virus?


    It look like these bastards have decided to make a pandemic hoax out of this Zika virus so they can bring forth GMO mosquitos who for sure will finish the job off!! This is all about the depopulation agenda the Bill Gates way! as he say in a conference for his elite friends ,, If we do a rely good job in the healthcare (= hell-they-care) and vaccines, then we can lower the population number!”
    What countries is Bill Gates foundation GAVI in full swing vaccinating with polio vaccine now and have been last 2 years? India and Pakistan..

    And this Eboal hoax..well..it should have been caalled “diamond”bola..because in Sierra Leone are big diamond mines and the people work there with very bad conditions and the people went on strike and then at same time the Ebola show up there! The flow of diamonds may nt stop!

    I think we need to look at what accest are in these places suddenly the mainstream media declares some virus who they clam will be the next pandemic! It is all about the population agenda -eugenics -selective – cutting down on us those these clan see as useless eaters on the planet! Hey…how about ordering the Zika virus and send it home to Bill Gates with nano mosquito drones ( yes-they exist!) and here you can order the virus

  5. Interesting piece on Globalresearch.ca

    Poisoning assessment

    Many of the pesticides used were hazardous organochlorine and OP insecticides. Of the workers interviewed, 13% suffered some type of acute poisoning that required first-aid treatment; 28% reported nausea during application of pesticides; and the majority experienced some symptoms immediately after exposure. 36% reported health problems related to the immune system (frequent itching of skin, eyes, and nose; or fever); 36%, skeletal/muscular problems (pains in joints); 33%, central and peripheral nervous system problems (dizziness, numbness in superior limbs, alterations in sleep patterns, and vomiting); 28%, digestive system problems; 25%, sensory organ problems; 18%, cardiovascular problems; 13%, respiratory system problems; and 11%, with urinary-genital system problems

    Reproductive effects

    Of the women workers, 32% reported being pregnant more than five times, 53% reported having prenatal examinations, 97% reported that they were not poisoned by pesticides during pregnancy. Almost three-quarters of the women (71%) reported miscarriages, and 11% reported having mentally and/or physically impaired offspring.

    The original source of this article is http://mitrinchera.obolog.es

    I found it interesting that 97% reported that they were not poisoned by pesticides during pregnancy…that a remarkable statistic since the women will wash and clean the spraying equipment without proper protection…of course a meager paycheck will cause people to agree with anything…in all this cluster no one has mentioned Cargill.
    Cargill or Louis Dreyfuss.

    Brazil has passed the USA as numero uno in quantities of pesticide consumption and soybean production, Brazil is number one….yeah.

    Of the 15000 pesticides and farm chemicals used world-wide, Brazil uses 8000 of those. 2000 of those chemicals are banned in Europe, Canada, USA, Australia…

    Cargill and Louis Dreyfuss just won an auction to operate a soybean terminal at Santos Port, San Paulo for the next 25 years…production of industrially grown chemically induced, pesticide drenched Soy surpassed a 100 million tonnes.
    Wow….they should be swimming in pesticide soon.


  6. Zika e Microcefalia – flagrante falta de evidências


    … 98% dos casos de microcefalia foram observados na região Nordeste do Brasil. Antes de concluir qualquer coisa, note que os padrões utilizados para relatar casos desse tipo variam entre as regiões. Até agora não houve foco nacional na microcefalia. Portanto, pode haver casos em outras regiões. Quanto aos 56 casos em Pernambuco, saiba que a população do estado é de 9,27 milhões de pessoas. É relevante notar que a agricultura comercial é amplamente praticada em Pernambuco, e isso significa uso intensivo de pesticidas tóxicos – um fator causal importante da microcefalia, conforme relatei em outros artigos. …

    I agree with your hypothesis. It is just a cover up for glyphosate use in the Northeast of Brazil and now the mossies are being zapped with equally harmful pesticides to make sure those babies in Colombia come out wonkey.

  8. Baboune says:

    Hi, fyi a group of searchers and doctors from Argentina and Brasil think that pyriproxyphen (not glyphosate) may be the cause of microcephalies .
    Pyriproxyphen is an insecticid produced by Monsanto’s partner Sumito Chemical. It has been widely used for 18 months in Brasil to fight Dengue spreading.
    They seem to have good arguments, it doesn’t seem to be a hoax at all that time.
    (for example they say that the number of microcéphalies was normal in the past, even during zyka pandemies)

    Sorry, I just found a news in english about the suspicion of piryproxyphen’s responsability . it’s from an ecologist site that seems serious http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_analysis/2987137/argentine_and_brazilian_doctors_suspect_mosquito_insecticide_as_cause_of_microcephaly.html

  10. The more I think about this, the more I would like to investigate compatible statistical evidence linking radiation to these conditions. Is there a clear divide between ultra-sound statistics and “radiation clean” births, for instance? Given so many obstacles these days, is there such a thing as radiation free? If so, given “interfered with immune systems”, what is “safe”?


  11. When I was in high school in West Berlin the Contergan babies were in the press. You know them as Thalidomide babies.

    One of my class mates said ‘this could have well been expected because in the tests of that substance, chicken hatched with no wings and other deformities’. How did he know? His father was a doctor and had medical magazines around the house. When was that? 1963/62.

    While I cannot prove that the current birth defects are due to glyphosate, it looks like a co-factor to me. Why are people only ever looking for ONE cause when a lot of issues are about co-factors. It would be good if the re-licensing by the EU would not happen. It would also be good if the TTIP could be averted as all countries would have to pay compensation to the chemical companies if they deprive them of a revenue source through laws and regulations, i.e. ban or half-ban glyphosate.
