Dr. Mercola The Horrific Truth About Roundup

MercolaSummer growing season is upon us, and you have a right to know where and how your fresh fruits and vegetables are grown. Ask questions at your local farmer's market. How is the food grown, what herbicides and pesticides are (or are not) in use?  Dr. Joseph Mercola asks tough questions about Round Up herbicide. From Bayer's "Ceresan" to Monsanto's Round Up, chemicals continue to take their toll on world health under the guise of "Better Living Through Chemistry." Dan Olmsted and Mark Blaxill traced the use of plant chemicals to autism's roots. Dr. Mercola continues the thread.

In recent weeks, we’ve learned some very disturbing truths about glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s broad-spectrum herbicide Roundup, which is generously doused on genetically engineered (GE) Roundup Ready crops.

GE crops are typically far more contaminated with glyphosate than conventional crops, courtesy of the fact that they’re engineered to withstand extremely high levels of Roundup without perishing along with the weed.

A new peer-reviewed report authored by Anthony Samsel, a retired science consultant, and a long time contributor to the Mercola.com Vital Votes Forum, and  Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), reveals how glyphosate wrecks human health.

In the interview above, Dr. Seneff summarizes the two key problems caused by glyphosate in the diet:

  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Systemic toxicity

Their findings make the need for labelling all the more urgent, and the advice to buy certified organic all the more valid.

The Horrific Truth about Roundup

In 2009, a French court found Monsanto guilty of lying; falsely advertising its Roundup herbicide as "biodegradable," "environmentally friendly" and claiming it "left the soil clean."

Mounting evidence now tells us just how false such statements are. I don’t believe that Monsanto is one of the most evil companies on the planet for nothing. The company has done absolutely nothing to improve their worldwide influence on human and environmental health.

In the video above, Jeffrey Smith, author of the bestseller Seeds of Deception, says Monsanto, during some reflective moment, must have asked “What would Darth Vader do?” Because what they’ve come up with is a way of pretending that they’re beneficial and then insinuating themselves into the food and agriculture industry, and now it turns out that what they have is very, very dangerous.

Indeed, according to Dr. Seneff, glyphosate is possibly "the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies,” including but not limited to..."  

Hint, the first chronic disease and condition on the list starts with the letter , A, and then a u.

More about the chemical industry's, particularly Monsanto's, efforts to silence criticism:


I'm now reading Whitewash by Carey Gillam. The author had been a typical Roundup fan, but during a 20 year investigation she came to realize that Monsanto was engaged in a conspiracy to hide the problems with GMOs and Roundup. She and her reporting became a target of Monsanto and its proxies. "The science is settled," she was told. We know the drill.

Here is a cache of documents Monsanto would rather you not know about. Enjoy:


Last week I watched the home renovation TV show "Yard Crashers" in which the host blithely sprayed Roundup on plants by a home foundation. Then later came a commercial for Roundup, showing a prototypical portly suburban man happily spraying weeds in his yard.

Carefree, careless, clueless. That's how Monsanto likes their toxic chemical consumers.

GM foods entered the U.S. food market starting around 1994-1995. I have no idea how much we may have eaten GM or glyphosate contaminated foods. Roundup has been on the market since the 1970s, but my family never used it. I can't say what our neighbors did. When my affected daughter was born the closest agricultural industry were lemon groves, but several miles away. Most (all I think) of my daughter's major regressions followed "healthcare" exposures.

Perhaps pesticides contribute to a susceptibility to such adverse reactions, and the CDC should be encouraging everyone to go green so they can better tolerate 30+ vaccines in the first year or two (though I think our children would still be significantly less healthy than previously less vaccinated generations), but the CDC can't significantly link any other industry with autism and neurodevelopmental disorders, I suspect, without coming under serious attack themselves.


My kids reacted to their vaccines before Round Up was invented.
