How Govt. Corruption Kills People & Destroys the Planet
Newly unburied documents show that the U.S. EPA conspired with Monsanto to lie about the horrific health and environmental impacts of the herbicide Roundup.
While farmers and children exposed to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide were dying from non-hodgkins lymphoma, a high-level EPA official was colluding with Monsanto behind the scenes to bury the truth.
And he actually bragged about it.
The newly unsealed court documents reveal that former EPA official Jess Rowland let Monsanto ghostwriters write the fraudulent EPA toxicology reports that would form the basis for a government investigation into whether or not Roundup causes cancer.
“If I can kill this I should get a medal,” Rowland reportedly told a Monsanto executive, who relayed the comment in an email.
Perhaps Rowland was just stupid and didn't understand that Roundup kills people or maybe he just didn't care or actually wants to kill people.
More than 700 Roundup cancer claims have now been filed in state and federal courts on behalf of victims that include farm workers and children who have non-hodgkins lymphoma, or who have already died from the disease, because they were exposed to Roundup.
Yet, that is the tip of the iceberg.
Roundup contains a chemical called glyphosate which was known by Monsanto to cause serious health problems in people and environmental damage.
Glyphosate does not break down in the soil as claimed but persists in the environment like Monsanto's other toxic chemicals such as DDT, PCBS and Dioxin.
Glyphosate is a sinister bio-weapon that does not just kill plants and damage human DNA and cause cancer but it disrupts the human gut bacteria (microbiome), which leads to a wide range of other ailments.
According to a scientific study published in the journal Entropy, glyphosate "enhance[s] the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and toxins in the environment to disrupt normal body functions and induce disease."
The chemical disrupts the cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, a large and diverse group of enzymes that catalyze the oxidation of organic substances and are essential to a healthy microbiome and detoxification.
One of the functions of CYP enzymes is to detoxify xenobiotics, which are chemical compounds found in a living organism that are not normally produced or consumed by the organism. By preventing these enzymes from detoxifying foreign chemical compounds, glyphosate amplifies the damaging effects of the many chemicals and environmental toxins we are exposed to.
Essentially, glyphosate turns a person's body into a disease factory by radically altering the microbiome. It disables the body's ability to rid itself of toxins, targets beneficial bacteria and causes genetic mutations in the microbes in the intestines.
It does the same thing in the soil. It causes a buildup of toxins, inhibits the function of healthy microbes and causes genetic mutations that result in new pathogens that then spread across the planet killing off wildlife and making people sick.
The collapse of bee and bat populations can be linked back to glyphosate.
In humans, glyphosate has been linked to leaky gut syndrome, autism, ADHD, obesity, Parkinsons disease, cancer of the thyroid, liver, bladder, pancreas, and kidneys and many other serious ailments.
The bio-weapon glyphosate must be banned immediately and has already been banned in many countries. However, in corrupt countries like Canada and the U.S. its usage is actually increasing dramatically and Trump is taking steps to reduce the already weak regulations and exempt Monsanto from lawsuits for damage from glyphosate. It is already impossible to sue for damage from toxic GMOS.
You can push back by demanding that stores stop selling the dangerous chemical and that government agencies stop spraying it. If you see someone spraying Roundup, remember that they are poisoning you and your family.
We can choose to stop eating food containing glyphosate and switch to healthier organically grown food and eat lower on the food chain.
