The journal Archives of Toxicology has published information that shows that the common herbicide Roundup can damage human DNA diluted to amazingly lower concentrations than currently used in genetically modified crops. How low? If you took half a tablespoon of the herbicide and diluted it in a gallon of water, human DNA would be under threat.
The extremely popular glyphosate has a wide range of potential adverse effects on health which, for the most part, are minimized as well as under-reported. It’s also interesting to note that the combinations of chemicals used in Roundup aid in increasing the toxicity of carcinogenic and endocrine disrupting poison much the same as the chemicals in cigarettes aid in the absorption of nicotine. In 2007 88,000 tons of glyphosate were used in US alone, and most likely hundreds of millions of additional tons globally. More an more evidence shows that it is resistant to biodegradation and now contaminates the air, rain and groundwater. If you crunch the numbers, in 2007 alone, 3,030,148,000 gallons of DNA corrupting water was created in the US in a single year.
My question to some of you is: Why is Monsanto in your investment portfolio?
