The results of a new scientific study on the effects of gyphosate on the nervous system reveal a link between the use of Round-Up weedkiller (which contains glyphosate as the primary active ingredient) and convulsions in animals. This finding creates implications for Parkinson’s Disease in humans.
The federal government is still working hard to convince the public that their food is safe.
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…
Bayer Chemical just lost a third appeal against U.S. court verdicts that awarded damages to customers blaming their cancers on use of its glyphosate-based Roundup weedkillers.
So there is some big news on the “Roundup Weedkiller with Glyphosate” front.
Glyphosate, the primary ingredient in RoundUp weed killer, continues to be widely used on food crops and as a result, the residue is present in many processed foods–especially those that contain corn, canola and soybean products. What does it mean for the human body to ingest glyphosate residue on a daily basis? Scientists now have the initial part of the answer and it concerns our gut microbiome.
Big Ag/Big Pharma corporation Bayer failed to persuade a California appeals court to overturn a verdict favoring a school groundskeeper who claimed its Roundup weed killer caused his cancer, but reduced the amount of damages by 74% to $20.5 million…
In addition to settlements for PCB and Dicamba, aspirin giant, pharmaceutical-agricultural chemicals company Bayer says it will pay up to $10.9 billion to settle a lawsuit over subsidiary Monsanto’s weedkiller Roundup.
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.
Bayer claims that the economic downturn resulting from the corona virus is behind the decision to offer less compensation to customers with cancer.
