PCBs, Agent Orange, GMO seeds and Roundup Weedkiller: Monsanto’s Legacy Lives On

Food, Faith & Hope…that is the spin Monsanto gave to stockholders and the general public when plotting to change their image from the creators of life-destroying Agent Orange and PCBs to the humanitarian developers and pushers of Glyphosate weedkiller and GMO seeds.  All of Monsanto’s legacy chemical products are now known to be toxic. And in one form or another, are still contaminating our lives. Their history is as convoluted as it has been profitable… 

Autism Linked to Toxic Chemicals in Household Products, Personal Care Products and Food: Study

New scientific research has linked autism to chemicals commonly found in U.S. household products, personal care products and food: PCBs, Phthalates, Bisphenol-A (BPA) and Pesticides.  More specifically, the study found that women who are exposed to these toxic chemicals while pregnant are more likely to have autistic children.

Gut Microbiome Affected by Toxic Chemicals in Products, Environment, Food

The microbes that inhabit our bodies are influenced by what we eat, drink, breathe and absorb through our skin, and most of us are chronically exposed to natural and human-made environmental contaminants.  In this study, scientists reviewed the research linking dozens of chemicals present in our personal care products, home care products, general environment and our food to changes in the gut microbiome and associated health challenges.

Exposure to Toxic Chemical Dioxin During Pregnancy Harms Offspring for Several Generations

New scientific research has demonstrated that exposure to dioxin, a common toxic chemical in industrial pollution, during pregnancy can harm the immune system of offspring and that this injury is passed along to subsequent generations, weakening the body’s defenses against infections such as the influenza virus. Exposure to dioxin in pregnancy occurs primarily in the food humans eat.
