Bathed in Pesticides: The Narrative of Deception

Wednesday, 26 January 2022 — Global Research

The volume of pesticide use and exposure is occurring on a scale that is without precedent and world-historical in nature. Agrichemicals are now pervasive as they cycle through bodies and environments. The herbicide glyphosate has been a major factor in driving this increase in use.

These statements appear in a 2021 paper ‘Growing Agrichemical Ubiquity: New Questions for Environments and Health’ (Community of Excellence in Global Health Equity).

“The World’s Most Evil Company” May Lose a Few Court Fights—But Will Keep On Poisoning and Killing Millions of People with Its Carcinogenic Pesticide ‘Roundup’

Thursday, 20 January 2022 — CovertAction Magazine

[Source: chappette.com]

Monsanto (now part of Bayer AB) had to pay $78 million in 2018 and $10 billion more in 2020 to settle 100,000 cancer lawsuits. But that won’t stop a company whose 2021 revenues will top $49.991 billion…which is why Roundup is still being profitably sprayed in 160 countries around the world.

The Right to Healthy Food: Comorbidities and COVID-19

Monday, 17 January 2022 — Global Research

In early 2020, we saw the beginning of the COVID-19 ‘pandemic’. The world went into lockdown and even after lockdowns in various countries had been lifted, restrictions continued. Data now shows that lockdowns seemingly had limited if any positive impacts on the trajectory of COVID-19 and in 2022 the world – especially the poor – is paying an immense price not least in terms of loss of income, loss of livelihoods, the deterioration of mental and physical health, the eradication of civil liberties, disrupted supply chains and shortages.

A Message to the EU: Address the Real Public Health Crisis by Banning Glyphosate (Part One)

30 August, 2021 — The New Dark Age

by Colin Todhunter

The herbicide glyphosate – the most widely used herbicide on the planet – is authorised for use in the EU until December 2022. The EU is currently assessing whether its licence should be renewed.

Environmentalist and campaigner Dr Rosemary Mason has just written an open letter to the head of the Pesticides Unit at the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), Jose Tarazona.

COVID Vaccines May Bring Avalanche of Neurological Disease

23 May 2021 — Mercola

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance

    • The typical unprecedented vaccine takes 12 years to develop, and of all the unprecedented vaccines in development, only 2% are projected to ever make it through all Phase 2 and 3 clinical phases of testing
    • The COVID-19 vaccine was developed with Operation Warp Speed in less than one year, which makes it virtually impossible to assess safety and efficacy, as the vaccine has not been adequately tested
    • Five months into the vaccination campaign, statistics tell a frightening story. Research shows deaths are 15 times higher during the first 14 days after the first COVID injection among people over the age of 60, compared to those who aren’t vaccinated
    • Another study shows that after COVID-19 vaccines were implemented, overall death rates have increased, with the exception of a few areas. It appears countries in which COVID-19 vaccines have not raised mortality rates are also not using glyphosate
    • In the next 10 to 15 years, we are likely to see spikes in prion diseases, autoimmune diseases, neurodegenerative diseases at younger ages, and blood disorders such as blood clots, hemorrhaging, stroke and heart failure

Proven: Glyphosate herbicides change gene function and cause DNA damage

27 April 2021 — GMWatch

Damaged DNA and crop spraying with pesticide

Bombshell finding could end EU authorization of glyphosate. Report: Claire Robinson

Glyphosate-based herbicides such as Roundup activate mechanisms involved in cancer development, including DNA damage – and these effects occur at doses assumed by regulators to have no adverse effects, a new study shows. The DNA damage was caused by oxidative stress, a destructive imbalance in the body that can cause a long list of diseases.

On 9 April 2021, retired physician and health and environmental campaigner Dr Rosemary Mason wrote to the Danish Environmental Protection Agency (DEPA). She wanted to draw the agency’s attention to the findings that indicate the glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup causes high levels of mortality following contact exposure in bumble bees (glyphosate-formulated herbicides are the most widely used weedicides in agriculture across the globe).

Glyphosate Hacks Hormones of Baby Girls after Exposure in the Womb – New Groundbreaking Pilot Study

8 April 2021 — Origin: Sustainable Pulse

A group of international scientists from the U.S. and EU have released a peer-reviewed pilot study that suggests the anogenital distance of baby girls is becoming more male-typical, due to their mothers being exposed to glyphosate when they are in the womb.

The Study, which was published on Monday, in the well-respected Elsevier peer-reviewed Journal ‘Environmental Pollution’, is a major breakthrough in our understanding of glyphosate as a hormone hacker (endocrine disruptor).

Roundup surfactants measured in urine, paving the way for biomonitoring in people

8 April 2021 — GMWatch

Urine Sample and magnifying glass

First step taken towards determining intake and body burden of overlooked toxic compounds

An important new step has been taken towards measuring glyphosate herbicide surfactants in the urine of people exposed to Roundup, with the publication of a new study in rats. Surfactants are a type of added ingredient, or adjuvant, that are added to herbicide formulations along with the so-called active ingredient – in the case of Roundup, the active ingredient is glyphosate. The role of surfactants is to enable the active ingredient to penetrate the waxy surface of plant leaves.

The Monsanto Papers – Deadly Secrets, Corporate Corruption, and One Man’s Search for Justice

1 March 2021 — USRTK

USRTK Research Director Carey Gillam’s new book is out now from Island Press and garnering glowing reviews. 

The St. Louis Post Dispatch calls Carey’s book “a fast-paced, engaging account of how Monsanto and Bayer’s fortunes changed dramatically in such a short span of time.” Read more reviews here

The Monsanto Papers is the inside story of Lee Johnson’s landmark lawsuit against Monsanto. For Lee, the case was a race against the clock, with doctors predicting he wouldn’t survive long enough to take the witness stand. For the eclectic band of young, ambitious lawyers representing him, it was a matter of professional pride and personal risk, with millions of their own dollars and hard-earned reputations on the line.

Crisis, What Crisis? Hypocrisy and Public Health in the UK

17 November 2020 — Dissident Voice

by Colin Todhunter and Rosemary Mason

On 12 March 2020, British PM Boris Johnson, referring to COVID-19, informed the public:

We’ve all got to be clear; this is the worst public health crisis for a generation.

Since that time, we have seen lockdowns, an ongoing government-backed fear campaign, fundamental rights being stripped away, dissent censored, inflated COVID-19 death numbers and the use of a flawed PCR test to label perfectly healthy individuals as COVID-19 ‘cases’ in order to fit the narrative of a ‘second wave’.

But, just for a moment, consider an alternative scenario.
