Your Health at Risk From What You Eat

Monsanto’s Covert Chemical Terrorism

Do you use Roundup? You know how good it is at killing weeds, yet do you know how good it is at creating most modern major diseases? Would you drink Roundup if you could? Probably not. At least I wouldn’t. Would you eat something that it’s been doused in it? If you knew what it was, you probably wouldn’t touch that either. Do you realize that every bite of bread you take, you’re eating Roundup and massive amounts of it. Every corn chip you eat, you’re eating massive amounts of glyphosate with it. It’s in the nature of how this herbicide is used. Changing your diet to change your health has never rang truer than it does right now.

Who knew that our greatest terrorism threat would be a clandestine threat from inside our country and it doesn’t carry a gun or bomb, or any kind of explosives, for that fact. This threat is a completely hidden threat, making it the worst threat we’ve ever faced. This threat is in your diet. It’s in something you eat multiple times a day. In all actuality, your hunger cycle is the instrument of your destruction, with this threat. It’s your hunger cycle that’s locks you into the cycle of destruction that glycation is responsible for as its the glucose that’s responsible for all inflammation, which in turn, is responsible for all modern disease.

All this damage from the enzyme inhibitors in the glyphosate, that’s done to your hormones, is no small matter. These hormones are important hormones affecting digestion, hunger and sleep. (Those are the very same things affected by your diet. also.) Where’s the similarity? It’s explained in the way it affects its targeted enzymes, like tyrosine, tryptophan and phenylalanine. These are all enzymes that influence your hunger, digestion and sleep hormones. If you have problems in any of these areas, this is your answer why.

It involves your consumption of glyphosate. (I’ll bet you didn’t know that, did you?) Would you eat it in the first place, if you knew? You probably would because you’ve been addicted to this substance without you even knowing it. This was literally done right under your nose, when you were fed, as a baby. The industry makes certain that this substance gets into most all baby food. This ensures that you have no choice in this addiction. It ensures your lifetime of compliance in feeding the addiction. It also guarantees your compliance  in the second half of the glucose ruse, the need for pharmaceuticals for a good portion of your life.

Displayed by all the graphs below; the increase of glyphosate usage mirrors the increase in disease. Are you one of these statistics? If you eat bread, I’m afraid you are.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Targeted enzymes influence the senescence of plants also influence the senescence of your body. They are important enzymes your body uses for digestion and controlling hunger; Glyphosate is absorbed through foliage, and minimally through roots, and transported to growing points. It inhibits a plant enzyme involved in the synthesis of three aromatic amino acidstyrosinetryptophan, and phenylalanine. Therefore, it is effective only on actively growing plants and is not effective as a pre-emergence herbicide. An increasing number of crops have been genetically engineered to be tolerant of glyphosate (e.g. Roundup Ready soybean, the first Roundup Ready crop, also created by Monsanto) which allows farmers to use glyphosate as a post emergence herbicide against weeds. The development of glyphosate resistance in weed species is emerging as a costly problem. While glyphosate and formulations such as Roundup have been approved by regulatory bodies worldwide, concerns about their effects on humans and the environment persist. Many regulatory and scholarly reviews have evaluated the relative toxicity of glyphosate as an herbicide. The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment toxicology review in 2013 found that “the available data is contradictory and far from being convincing” with regard to correlations between exposure to glyphosate formulations and risk of various cancers, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).  A meta-analysis published in 2014 identified an increased risk of NHL in workers exposed to glyphosate formulations. In March 2015 the World Health Organization‘s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic in humans” (category 2A) based on epidemiological studies, animal studies, and in vitro

In November, 2015, the European Food Safety Authority published an updated assessment report on glyphosate, concluding that “the substance is unlikely to be genotoxic (i.e. damaging to DNA) or to pose a carcinogenic threat to humans.” Furthermore, the final report clarified that while other, probably carcinogenic, glyphosate-containing formulations       may exist, studies “that look solely at the active substance glyphosate do not show this effect. In May 2016, the Joint FAO/WHO Meeting on Pesticide Residues concluded that “glyphosate is unlikely to pose a carcinogenic risk to humans from exposure through the diet”, even at doses as high as 2,000 mg/kg body weight orally.

Targeted Enzymes are Important for Regulating Sleep, Digestion and Hunger

1Tyrosine influences hunger by controlling enzymes that control how receptors react to stimuli that controls your hunger. Tyrosine is a precursor to Dopamine, your primary hormone influencing hunger. This is the hormone triggered by leptin, your satiety hormone. If it takes more leptin to trigger the dopamine, it’s going to take more food to trigger the leptin. Was this engineered intentionally?

2Tryptophan is also a precursor to serotonin and melatonin. Serotonin is another feel good hormone that’s affected by glyphosate. Melatonin is the hormone that allows you to sleep. without it, you’re going to have trouble sleeping. Is it no wonder why so many people suffer from insomnia now? (They sell medicine for that, don’t they?)

3Phenylalanine  Phenylalanine is a precursor for tyrosine; the monoamine neurotransmitters  dopaminenorepinephrine  (noradrenaline), and epinephrine (adrenaline); and the skin pigment melanin. That was according to Wikipedia. All of those enzymes influence your hunger.

The WHO has finally recognized glyphosate as a Group 2 Carcinogen, meaning that it probably causes cancer. We know that it affects your sleep, hunger and digestion, let’s see if these chemicals can  be responsible for cancer. The evidence for this lies in the multiple graphs showing the increase of glyphosate increasing right alongside the increase of multiple disorders and disease, including autism.

In Monsanto’s desire to spread as much of this on the earth as possible, they’re poisoning every bit of food you eat, unless you grow your own and raise and butcher your own. All forage for feed is sprayed multiple times, maybe even more than the grain used for your bread. Cattle slaughtered for beef, never live long enough to get cancer, yet it goes into their food supply. 1,8 billion lbs in 20 years has been dumped on your food supplies. Ultimately, it goes into your body in multiple avenues, increasing the amount you consume, thereby increasing the amount of enzyme inhibitors affecting your health. This has brought the pharmaceutical industry record profits, not to mention what it’s brought Monsanto and their crop seed companies, pharmaceutical companies, and chemical wing of their manufacturing. Monsanto has engineered clandestine distemper on our health without us even knowing or approving of it.

It’s not been good for the unsuspecting public who are still condemned to eating this food to feed their addiction as evidenced by these studies from PMC;

Glyphosate is a likely cause of the recent epidemic in celiac disease. Glyphosate residues are found in wheat due to the increasingly widespread practice of staging and desiccation of wheat right before harvest. Many of the pathologies associated with celiac disease can be explained by disruption of CYP enzymes. Celiac patients have a shortened life span, mainly due to an increased risk to cancer, most especially non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which has also been linked to glyphosate. Celiac disease trends over time match well with the increase in glyphosate usage on wheat crops.

Glyphosate is also neurotoxic. Its mammalian metabolism yields two products: Aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) and glyoxylate, with AMPA being at least as toxic as glyphosate. Glyoxylate is a highly reactive glycating agent, which will disrupt the function of multiple proteins in cells that are exposed. Glycation has been directly implicated in Parkinson’s disease (PD). Glyphosate has been detected in the brains of malformed piglets. In a report produced by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), over 36% of 271 incidences involving acute glyphosate poisoning involved neurological symptoms, indicative of glyphosate toxicity in the brain and nervous system.

In the remainder of this paper, we first introduce the link between glyphosate and manganese (Mn) dysbiosis, and briefly describe the main biological roles of Mn. We then describe how glyphosate’s disruption of gut bacteria may be a major player in the recent epidemic in antibiotic resistance. We then explain how glyphosate can influence the uptake of arsenic and aluminum, and propose similar mechanisms at work with Mn. In the next section, we describe how Mn deficiency can lead to a reduction in Lactobacillus in the gut, and we link this to anxiety disorder. We follow with a discussion on mitochondrial dysfunction associated with suppressed Mn superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD), and then a section on implications of Mn deficiency for oxalate metabolism. The following section explains how Mn deficiency can lead to the overexpression of ammonia and glutamate in many neurological diseases. The next two sections show how Mn accumulation in the liver is linked to cholestasis and high serum low density lipoprotein (LDL), and how this can also induce increased susceptibility to Salmonella poisoning. We then identify a role for Mn in chondroitin sulfate synthesis, and the implications for osteomalacia. The next two sections explain how glyphosate exposure can lead to Mn toxicity in the brain, and discuss two neurological diseases that are associated with excess Mn, PD and prion diseases. After a section on the link between male infertility and Mn deficiency in the testes, we discuss evidence of exposure to glyphosate and end with a short summary of our findings.

The report goes on to detail how this herbicide is involved in suppressing dopamine which leads to an overactive thyroid. It’s also involved in ;

  1. MICROBIAL ANTIBIOTIC INTOLERANCE

Manganese (Mn) is an often overlooked but important nutrient, required in small amounts for multiple essential functions in the body. A recent study on cows fed genetically modified Roundup®-Ready feed revealed a severe depletion of serum Mn. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup®, has also been shown to severely deplete Mn levels in plants. Here, we investigate the impact of Mn on physiology, and its association with gut dysbiosis as well as neuropathologies such as autism, Alzheimer’s disease (AD), depression, anxiety syndrome, Parkinson’s disease (PD), and prion diseases. Glutamate overexpression in the brain in association with autism, AD, and other neurological diseases can be explained by Mn deficiency. Mn superoxide dismutase protects mitochondria from oxidative damage, and mitochondrial dysfunction is a key feature of autism and Alzheimer’s. Chondroitin sulfate synthesis depends on Mn, and its deficiency leads to osteoporosis and osteomalacia. Lactobacillus, depleted in autism, depend critically on Mn for antioxidant protection. Lactobacillus probiotics can treat anxiety, which is a comorbidity of autism and chronic fatigue syndrome. Reduced gut Lactobacillus leads to overgrowth of the pathogen, Salmonella, which is resistant to glyphosate toxicity, and Mn plays a role here as well. Sperm motility depends on Mn, and this may partially explain increased rates of infertility and birth defects. We further reason that, under conditions of adequate Mn in the diet, glyphosate, through its disruption of bile acid homeostasis, ironically promotes toxic accumulation of Mn in the brainstem, leading to conditions such as PD and prion diseases.

 

  1. MANGANESE DYSBIOSIS DUE TO GLYPHOSATE

Remarkably, Mn deficiency can explain many of the pathologies associated with autism and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The incidence of both of these conditions has been increasing at an alarming rate in the past two decades, in step with the increased usage of glyphosate on corn and soy crops in the United States, as shown in [Figures 

  1. ANALOGY WITH ARSENIC AND ALUMINUM

Chronic kidney disease is clearly associated with multiple environmental toxicants. There has been an epidemic in recent years in kidney failure among young agricultural workers in Central America, India, and Sri Lanka, particularly those working in the sugar cane fields. A recent paper reached the unmistakable conclusion that glyphosate plays a critical role in this epidemic. A growing practice of spraying sugar cane with glyphosate as a ripener and desiccant right before the harvest has led to much greater exposure to the workers in the fields. The authors, who focused their studies on affected workers in rice paddies in Sri Lanka, identified a synergistic effect of arsenic, which contaminated the soil in the affected regions. This paper is highly significant, because it proposes a mechanism whereby glyphosate greatly increases the toxicity of arsenic through chelation, which promotes uptake by the gut. Glyphosate also depletes glutathione (GSH) and glutathione S transferase (GST) is a critical enzyme for liver detoxification of arsenic. As a consequence, excess arsenic in the kidney causes acute kidney failure, without evidence of other symptoms such as diabetes usually preceding kidney failure.

  3. GUT BACTERIA DYSBIOSIS AND ANXIETY
  4. AMMONIA, GLUTAMATE, AND NEUROTOXICITY

In this section, we will show that both glutamate and ammonia are implicated as neurotoxins in connection with autism and other neurological diseases, and we will offer the simple explanation that Mn deficiency leads to impaired activity of glutamine synthase and arginase, both of which utilize Mn as a cofactor. Mn deficiency can also explain the increased risk to epilepsy found in autism, due to the fact that Mn decreases T2 relaxation time. Mn-deprived rats are more susceptible to convulsions.

Many diseases and conditions are currently on the rise in step with glyphosate usage in agriculture, particularly on GM crops of corn and soy. These include autism, AD, PD, anxiety disorder, osteoporosis, inflammatory bowel disease, renal lithiasis, osteomalacia, cholestasis, thyroid dysfunction, and infertility. All of these conditions can be substantially explained by the dysregulation of Mn utilization in the body due to glyphosate.

It may seem implausible that glyphosate could be toxic to humans, given the fact that government regulators appear nonchalant about steadily increasing residue limits, and that the levels in food and water are rarely monitored by government agencies, presumably due to lack of concern. However, a paper by Antoniou et al. provided a scathing indictment of the European regulatory process regarding glyphosate’s toxicity, focusing on potential teratogenic effects. They identified several key factors leading to a tendency to overlook potential toxic effects. These include using animal studies that are too short or have too few animals to achieve statistical significance, disregarding in vitro studies or studies with exposures that are higher than what is expected to be realistically present in food, and discarding studies that examine the effects of glyphosate formulations rather than pure glyphosate, even though formulations are a more realistic model of the natural setting and are often orders of magnitude more toxic than the active ingredient in pesticides. Regulators also seemed unaware that chemicals that act as endocrine disruptors (such as glyphosate often have an inverted dose–response relationship, wherein very low doses can have more acute effects than higher doses. Teratogenic effects have been demonstrated in human cell lines. An in vitro study showed that glyphosate in parts per trillion can induce human breast cancer cell proliferation.

  2. PRION DISEASES
  3. OSTEOMALACIA AND ARTHRITIS

This is only a partial list of what this herbicide is responsible for. Visit the link at the head of this section for the full story. You should visit it, if only for your health’s concern. This just points out the fact that what you eat has more impact on your health than anything else. It would be nice if you could get away from it, but you can’t. The pollution is everywhere you go for food. You have to produce your own food to be completely free from this curse.

It’s cursing you not only through the grains you eat, but through the damage done to feed crops, contaminating beef, pork, chicken, turkey and even dairy cows, poisoning even the cheese, milk and butter you buy. The only way you can get round this ruse is to grow your own food and raise and butcher your own meat. Monsanto has every other path sewn up, tighter than a drum. To eat grains is to court death. It’s become that simple.

This poses a major question in my mind; can the target in this ruse, be you and your money? It’s obviously what the end result is and that’s displayed in the record profits of the pharmaceutical industry. The more disease caused by this herbicide, the more medicine the pharmaceutical industry sells. Monsanto own’s the crop seed companies, produces the herbicide and owns the pharmaceutical corporations, so they’re profiting much more than two or three times in this ruse. It’s that simple. Only you can control this transformation of your health, this travesty of justice. Only you can say no to the grains that this herbicide poisons. It’s your choice to remain a slave to Monsanto, or be free. All you have to do is to give up the grains.
