There is something much bigger then climate change we should be worrying about.

Pollution

 

Written by Lee Stevenson, sorry I am a lousy editor.

We have a crisis but it is not global climate change. It is far worse, it makes most world problems seem mild. Our food supply is going to collapse at the rate things are going. The destruction of the circle of life that keeps our food supply going is collapsing at an alarming rate. The toxins man is dumping into our environment is destroying our water ways, the oceans and even our air. This is effecting the fish and amphibian populations which other animals in the food chain consume. We have lost many species of insects especially ones that pollinate are being driven to extinction. Many farmers now have to rent bees and those who own the bees will not rent to ones who use chemicals because the farm chemicals are destroying our pollinators.

The biotech industry is creating the very problem they are falsely claiming to be solving. They claim they are increasing productivity and reducing chemical usage but in actuality they are increasing the use of them. They are causing super plants to arise that are immune to current chemicals so their strength and the amounts used has to be increased. Insect that the plants are supposed to be resistant to are becoming resistant to the toxins the shot gunned into the genes of the plants so they are having to make the plants more and more toxic.  Not only that but the farm chemicals being used have been found to have a dramatic negative impact on the health of those consuming the foods that contain them. The BT Toxins that are found in the genes of GMO foods have been found to cause the body to react in a way similar to how it would react if a person had food poisoning. It is why digestive diseases are rampant right now. The farm chemicals are known to cause autoimmunity , cancer, diabetes and many other illnesses. Now combine this with the effects of vaccines which are known to damage the body 100% of the time. They claim the body recovers from the damage they do but add that with the damage being caused by the toxins in our food and environment. The United States has the highest infant mortality rate in the industrialized world. Our children are the sickest in the world. We need to start asking why?

There are microbes in our oceans that regulate our climate. Those are being destroyed by the toxins we are dumping into them. We consume the sea food from those oceans but populations of the things we eat are rapidly declining and ones that have not declined have become so toxic we have to limit what we consume or even avoid them altogether.

GMOs have been found to produce less and if they do get comparable production they have been found to be lacking in nutrients because the chemicals they use on them chelates important minerals from the soil and from the bodies of those who consume the foods containing those chemicals. Not only that but they also destroy the microbes plants need to take up nutrient farther reducing the nutrient content of the plants. Now combine that with over farming and the foods produced have very little nutritional value. The government hides the harm being done. They only care about power and money. Not only have they worked to hide the harm being done they have increased the levels of toxins they permit people to use. GMOs and over processing of foods have made it so most of our food is just filler and has very little nutritional content which is most likely contributing to obesity because food is not inflammatory which is known to cause obesity and a person has to eat more of it to get the nutrients they need.

Because the biotech industry has pretty much taken over the education on methods of farming children are indoctrinated to believe that they will make more profit and have better production with GMOs even though the opposite has been shown to be true. Those who use safer non chemical methods of farming get higher production with foods that taste better and have much higher nutritional content and it cost much less to produce.

Many scientist have estimated that the damage we are causing to our soil and water will cause us to lose the ability to produce food within a few decades.

Greed has made people easy to deceive into using less profitable and harmful farming methods. With the modern farming practices it is not a matter of if our food supply collapse but a matter of when it collapses. Once the extinction of our pollinators has occurred there is no recovering because they cannot be replaced. Once an insect or animal that pollinates has become extinct we cannot replace them. Man is trying to develop methods of pollinating because we are so close to losing our pollinators for good. We know how that goes, when man intervenes we usually mess things up even more. They do not want people to take note that this is occurring because the corrupt pharmaceutical industries own the biotech industries and they stand to lose billions if people take note of these things. I wouldn’t doubt if they are the ones promoting the climate scare and the false information claiming that GMOs increase food production and will end hunger.

Now ad this to the fact that people spray chemicals to kill the plants these bees use for a food source. Dandelions are one of the first foods bees have access to in the spring and most will spray chemicals to kill dandelions and other wild flowers needed by our pollinators.

These chemicals are killing amphibians, fish , shell fish and many other creatures. Other animals rely on those for food. Their destruction causes a break in the food cycle. So this even effects our access to animals as a source of nutrition. With man working against the earth we have a food supply very very near collapse. Once those creatures are gone they are gone and there will be no way to produce the amounts of food we do now days.

RoundUp Talking Points.

roundup

 

This is not health advice. I am posting this for informational purposes only.

This has been written by my Facebook friend Matt Murtaugh. These are his suggested talking points we could use when contacting companies to petition them on rethinking the safety of glyphosate in our food supply. He has been working very hard to try and protect others. We have been contacting politicians, food producers and suppliers and anyone else we can think of that could help reduce the poisoning of people by this toxin.

Here are links and points to show a company why Roundup is bad.

  1. “America has sprayed 1.8 million tons since 1974, and 9.4 million tons of the chemical have been sprayed onto fields worldwide.” It is the number one selling pesticide in the world.
  2. https://www.newsweek.com/glyphosate-now-most-used-agricultural-chemical-ever-422419

2. It is water soluble, so it has gone everywhere water goes – The oceans, lakes, streams, ponds, and our drinking water. “Glyphosate is highly soluble in water”

https://www.cdpr.ca.gov/docs/emon/pubs/fatememo/glyphos.pdf

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2858720

3. It has been found at unsafe levels in cereal,(a) vaccines (b), human urine, breast milk, drinking water, (c), beer and wine (d) (a)

(d)https://www.ecowatch.com/glyphosate-wine-beer-testing-2553632957.html

4. Roundup does not dry, wash, or cook off, and have been proven to be neurotoxic,(a) carcinogenic (b), endocrine disruptors (c), and a cause of liver disease (d) at very low levels.

5. It has been shown to damage the human embryo and placental cells (f), and cause miscarriages (g). Our studies show that glyphosate acts as a disruptor of mammalian cytochrome P450 aromatase activity from concentrations 100 times lower than the recommended use in agriculture; this is noticeable on human placental cells after only 18 hr.”

(f)https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1257596/ (g) https://www.scirp.org/Journal/PaperInformation.aspx?PaperID=83267&fbclid=IwAR1UPXJO3G4MlR9JVhcqDy51QhbMdrKlG5ECsjlteYNF66ikpkIyE24VJBE

6. Study showed both immediate and longer term brain overstimulation and cell damage in humans (h)Mechanisms underlying the neurotoxicity induced by glyphosate-based herbicide in immature rat hippocampus: involvement of glutamate excitotoxicity.(h)https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24636977

 

7. It contains arsenic (i)https://sustainablepulse.com/2018/01/08/shocking-study-shows-glyphosate-herbicides-contain-toxic-levels-of-arsenic/#.XE0RthRRfeQ

 

8. It binds to aluminum in the gut and then bypasses the gut barrier destroying immunity and amino acids made by beneficial gut bacteria. Those inflammatory responses in the gut are playing roles in autism and many other diseases (j) “It is now well established that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is associated with dysbiosis in the gut [50], and, indeed, this is viewed by many as an important contributor to ASD.” …”Ammonia plays an important role in the etiology of hepatic encephalopathy associated with both acute and chronic liver dysfunction [56,57]. The source of the ammonia is believed to be intestinal bacteria, including those in both the small and large intestine” (j) “but one can surmise that non-organic soy formula might be contaminated with glyphosate, and this could be a contributing factor to both the autism and the C. difficile.” (j)

“this dysbiosis is caused principally by impaired sulfate supply to the mucosa, and that the toxic phenolic compounds both assist in correcting this deficiency and induce inflammatory responses due to their oxidizing effects.” (j)

9. It inhibits enzymes which help metabolize harmful substrates and make beneficial ones. Without them you stop making good substrates and can’t get rid of toxins. (k), (l) (These are known as CYP enzymes) A study conducted in 1998 demonstrated that glyphosate inhibits cytochrome P450 enzymes in plants (l)https://www.news-medical.net/life-sciences/What-are-Cytochrome-P450-%28CYP%29-Enzymes.aspx

10. Has shown damage to rat testicles, leading to a potentially serious effect on fertility. (m)

“Glyphosate has been described as an endocrine disruptor affecting the male reproductive system; however, the molecular basis of its toxicity remains to be clarified. We propose that Roundup toxicity, implicated in Ca(2+) overload, cell signaling misregulation, stress response of the endoplasmic reticulum, and/or depleted antioxidant defenses, could contribute to Sertoli cell disruption in spermatogenesis that could have an impact on male fertility.”

11. Could be playing a role in bee colony collapse disorder “with no abatement in the bee colony collapse disorder, glyphosate could be playing a role in the bees’ plight” (n) “It is a cytochrome P450 endocrine disruptor at levels 100x lower than recommended use in agriculture”(n) “Our studies show that glyphosate acts as a disruptor of mammalian cytochrome P450 aromatase activity from concentrations 100 times lower than the recommended use in agriculture” (n) “Is a potential endocrine disruptor”(n) (n

12. It created morphological changes in tadpoles, and kills frogs and amphibians easily. (o), (p) “After three weeks, Roundup killed 96–100% of larval amphibians (regardless of soil presence). I then exposed three species of juvenile (post‐metamorphic) anurans (0) One “inert” is called n laboratory containers. After one day, Roundup killed 68–86% of juvenile amphibians. These results suggest that Roundup, a compound designed to kill plants, can cause extremely high rates of mortality to amphibians that could lead to population declines.” (0) (0) THE LETHAL IMPACT OF ROUNDUP ON AQUATIC AND TERRESTRIAL AMPHIBIANS

13. It’s not just the ingredient glyphosate in roundup, it’s the other formulants too. They’re very toxic and called inerts, but that is a misleading. They’re really formulants and kept secret. They can cause serious damage. (q) “We tested the toxicity of 9 pesticides, comparing active principles and their formulations, on three human cell lines” “…8 formulations out of 9 were up to one thousand times more toxic than their active principles”

(q)Major pesticides are more toxic to human cells than their declared active principles.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=R+Mesnage+-+major+pesticides

One “inert” (formulant) is called polyethoxylated tallowamine which showed very toxic to a crustaceans in one study. (r) One ingredient is polyethoxylated tallowamine .

This is added by me. Note humans are not RoundUp ready and neither are our pets.
