Monsanto - Roundup Kills Human Cells / GMO's

Post by TJones on Sat Jun 04, 2011 12:39 pm

Monsanto, Monsanto, Monsanto. Is it simply a scary coincidence that
nearly every time bad news hits, they’re involved? (Hint: No.)  This
time, new research has intensified the debate that Roundup, the popular
weed killer created by Monsanto, also kills human cells. The research
posits that the inert ingredients in Roundup, or inactive ones,
are not quite so inactive.  And by that I mean they may be deadly to
human embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells.

Tell everyone you know to BOYCOTT Roundup and GMO foods!

Those are cells we use to make babies, ya’ll.
According to Environmental Health News:
Used in yards, farms and parks throughout the world,
Roundup has long been a top-selling weed killer. But now researchers
have found that one of Roundup’s inert ingredients can kill human cells,
particularly embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells. The new
findings intensify a debate about so-called “inerts” — the solvents,
preservatives, surfactants and other substances that manufacturers add
to pesticides. Nearly 4,000 inert ingredients are approved for use by
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. […]
The research team suspects that Roundup might cause pregnancy
problems by interfering with hormone production, possibly leading to
abnormal fetal development, low birth weights or miscarriages. […]
Until now, most health studies have focused on the safety of
glyphosate, rather than the mixture of ingredients found in Roundup. But
in the new study, scientists found that Roundup’s inert ingredients
amplified the toxic effect on human cells—even at concentrations much
more diluted than those used on farms and lawns.
One specific inert ingredient, polyethoxylated tallowamine, or POEA,
was more deadly to human embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells
than the herbicide itself — a finding the researchers call
“This clearly confirms that the [inert ingredients] in Roundup
formulations are not inert,” wrote the study authors from France’s
University of Caen. “Moreover, the proprietary mixtures available on the
market could cause cell damage and even death [at the] residual levels”
found on Roundup-treated crops, such as soybeans, alfalfa and corn, or
lawns and gardens.
Think about it: Roundup has been around since the early 1970s. And if
100 million pounds of Roundup are used per year, that’s about forty
pounds of Roundup we’ve been exposed to since its inception.
And if you didn’t know this, prepare to cry. Monsanto is not only the
world’s leading producer of weed-killer that also kills human
cells—they’re also the leading producer of genetically engineered seeds
(GMOs), which means somewhere between 70 and 100 percent market share
for a variety of crops—namely corn and soy—which makes up the diet of
factory-farmed cows and chickens, which are then eaten by humans.
