Monsanto Attacks the IARC for Labeling Glyphosate a Carcinogen – Using the U.S. Government as a Weapon

Monsanto Influenced Report on Cancer and Roundup

February 22, 2018 by: 

U.S. Right to Know recently reported that even though 39 percent of all Americans will one day be diagnosed with cancer, resulting in hundreds of thousands of deaths, government representatives are going out of their way to protect the manufacturers of a known cancer-causer: The glyphosate produced by agri-giant Monsanto.

When the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer labeled glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans” back in 2015, the first real crack appeared in Monsanto’s carefully constructed narrative that its billion-dollar product is harmless, and that farmers should continue dousing their fields with this toxic herbicide. (Related: EPA hid truth about glyphosate and cancer for decades to protect Monsanto’s corporate profits.)

The IARC also found that there was “limited evidence of carcinogenicity in humans for non-Hodgkin lymphoma,” as well as “convincing evidence that glyphosate also can cause cancer in laboratory animals.” (Related: Learn more about the science linking glyphosate and cancer at Glyphosate.news.)

Monsanto was immediately assaulted with a slew of lawsuits from farmers and others claiming to have developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma as a result of exposure to glyphosate, which is the primary ingredient in the company’s Roundup product.

Of course, Monsanto should never be underestimated. The people who run the “world’s most evil corporation” are master tacticians, and they had a plan for dealing with this situation even before the IARC released its report.

Glyphosate Contaminants In Processed Brand Name Foods

Is this a surprise to anyone? It would be nice to see a list of foods that do not contain glyphosate.

Glyphosate is the main chemical active in several brands of agricultural and corporate farming herbicides used in the growing fields; in GMO seed crop cultures; and in what’s called “preharvest staging” [1].  That’s when the herbicide is sprayed several days [3 to 5 days] prior to crop harvest to “ensure” seed heads mature evenly.  Some consider that process acts as a “desiccant.”

The more commonly-used herbicide is Roundup® manufactured by Monsanto.  In GMO farming, there is Roundup Ready® seeds, which are totally different from heirloom or non-GMO seeds.  One specific difference is GMO seeds have patents on them, meaning something has been done to modify the seed from the parent or original plant strain produced by Nature.

Recently on an Internet talk show, I heard a professor talking about the non-browning apple, i.e., the apple’s protein is turned off  to make the GMO-non-browning apple not brown when cut and exposed to air, as a normal apple does.

Well, the question I, as a natural nutritionist, have is:  If the protein (0.3 gram or 1% of Daily Value) [3] in the GMO non-browning apple is turned off, does that mean the apple protein is not functional within that GMO apple as a nutrient for human nutrition?  Has a scientific nutritional analysis proven that factually one way or the other?  Or does science indicate that protein is viable as human nutrition?  Because, if not, that would make a real nutritional difference in the GMO non-browning apple!

Furthermore, what’s called the “equivalence factor” of GMO phoods really is this, in my opinion: GMO plants have ‘things’ either inserted or turned off or modified (allowing patents to be issued making food seeds/plants corporate property subject to legal redress) from original parent plants, therefore, GMOs are NOT equivalent to the original plant food, regardless of what GMO science claims!

The fact food crop seeds or plants have “patents” should be the prime exclusionary criterion difference, in my opinion, since historical and heirloom foods/seeds/plants did not, and do not, have patents!  That’s why the U.S. FDA is out to lunch on GMO phood science, I say, and all GMO phoods legally must be labeled correctly to comply with truth in advertising laws in the USA.

Then there’s the inconvenient ‘byproduct’ of corporate farming; it’s glyphosate residues in processed foods, which has been confirmed scientifically by Food Democracy Now, The Detox Project and their 29-page report “Glyphosate: UNSAFE ON ANY PLATE”[2].

Below are two charts showing the glyphosate food testing results in parts per billion (ppb) FDN had performed, and the results are nothing short of stunning!  Cheerios, which moms routinely give to toddlers as “finger food,” contain 1,125.3 ppb!
