According to a recent study many pesticides that have been banned or are being phased out in the EU, Brazil and China, are still widely used in the U.S.
Yet another study has just been published that has as its premise, “If we could just get the idiot public to understand science, they would change their negative attitudes about GMO food”. The problem? As with the researchers that came before them did, the researchers in the current replication study neglected to inform study participants of TWO KEY FACTORS SURROUNDING GMO FOOD: (1) High levels of Monsanto’s Round-Up Weedkiller pesticide is present in GMO foods on the grocery shelves, and (2) No safety testing for GMO foods has ever been conducted in the U.S.
A California jury on May 13, 2019 awarded more than $2 billion to a couple who claimed Bayer’s glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer caused their cancer, in the largest U.S. jury verdict to date against the company in litigation over the chemical.
In a bold decision the state of California has moved to ban the pesticide chlorpyrifos because of scientific research linking it to harm to babies’ brains. Scientific studies have shown that the pesticide is a neurotoxin that harmed brain development in fetuses and affected reading ability, IQ and led to hyperactivity in children.
In the first of its kind study scientists have just discovered that adverse effects on the body from popular weedkiller RoundUp (glyphosate) carry over to future generations–and in some cases, even get worse.
