In 2015 The International Agency for Research on Cancer, which is part of the World Health Organization, classified Glyphosate as a “probable human carcinogen”. Glyphosate is an herbicide most recognized by its most popular brand name RoundUp.
Glyphosate is used to regulate plant growth and ripening. Its use is so widespread in agriculture that plants intended for food production are modified at the genetic level to be resistant to RoundUp (RoundUp Ready) - problem #2. Glyphosate in our food supply and extreme genetic manipulation on plants that are the basis of the global food supply.
Glyphosate and RoundUp are manufactured by agri-giant Monsanto which is owned by Bayer, the pharmaceutical giant. Bayer, a household brand name has a well documented history of heinous human rights violations that span the globe dating back over a century to 1898 when it trademarked heroin, then marketed it around the globe for decades as a safe cough medicine for children "without side-effects", despite the well known and well documented dangers of addiction. Beyer is also well connected with atrocities and human rights violations committed during WWII in Europe.
A jury in federal court in San Francisco will decide whether Roundup weed killer caused a California man’s cancer in a trial that starts this week. This is the 2nd such trial but the 1st being heard in Federal Court. In the 1st case, a San Fran jury in Aug 2018 awarded another man $289 million (Later reduced to 78 Million) after determining Roundup caused his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Thousands of additional cases are pending and many are eager for the outcome of this 2dn trial. Already in the 1st days of deliberation a world renowned Epidemiologist testified to links between Glyphosate and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Many expect a landmark ruling at the Federal level to be handed down against Monsanto and parent company Bayer.
"It's in out water supply, in our atmosphere, in our soil, in the cotton our clothes are made of, the cosmetics we use"
Why you should be following this case. This issue directly impacts every human being on the planet. It's well known that after decades of proliferation that glyphosate is now present throughout life. It's in out water supply, in our atmosphere, in our soil, in the cotton our clothes are made of, the cosmetics we use, it literally can not be avoided.
The list of health issues connected with glyphosate on human physiology is extensive and growing. Aside from Lymphomas, it's linked to breast cancer, brain cancer, kidney diseases, cellular toxicity, chronic inflammatory diseases and the corresponding opioid epidemic, autism, obesity, alzheimer's disease, chronic pain, autonomic disorders, gut & digestive disorders, ADHD, Celiac disease and gluten intolerance, colitis, food allergies, reproductive disorders, diabetes, depression, hypothyroidism, and the list goes on and on.
It can even be found in significant levels in many of the foods that you think you could trust. Most people don't take into consideration issues like this when they source their food, despite the known issues - expectations are that this Federal case may be the tipping point that points public perception towards the truth.
