Kauai Candidates, Council Members, and Mayor: Study Guide for Glyphosphate Poisoning

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This is a study guide for Kauai administrators.  There are supporting articles with live links which appear as blue.   Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, sold at Home Depot, Ace Hardware, and other retail outlets. Glyphosate is listed by World Health Organization as a carcinogen. Nationwide, glyphosate derivatives are found in 100% of pregnant women.  It is not only used as an herbicide for most GMO crops, but is also used to dry grains post-harvest. “World Health Organization admits Monsanto’s glyphosate ‘probably’ causes cancer; chemical found in 75% of air and rain samples…” – Source    “The Environmental Working Group today called on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to require mandatory GMO labeling after the World Health Organization’s cancer research arm designated the herbicide glyphosate, widely used on GMO crops, as “probably carcinogenic to humans.” – Source The Birth Defect-Causing Properties of Roundup (glyphosate) Hidden for Decades In 2010, after a dramatic increase in reports of birth defects in Argentina (a four fold increase) since 2002, a lab study was performed that found low doses of the active ingredient in Roundup known as glyphosate, the most prevalent herbicide worldwide, causes birth defects in frog and chicken embryos. This study was followed by others demonstrating cardiac anomalies, embryonic death, and multifocal malformations suspected to be related to oxidized vitamin A toxicity caused by glyphosate. A more recent study in tropical fish has echoed this dose-related concern with harrowing outcomes: “survival and hatching percentage decreased as glyphosate concentration increased. Absence of pectoral fin(s) and cornea, permanently bent tail, irregular…

Boycott Frito-Lay and Pepsi : Roundup and Herbicide

By | Archives | No Comments

GMO Corn and Herbicide Found in 100% of Frito-Lay SunChips Samples http://naturalsociety.com/gmo-corn-and-herbicide-found-in-100-of-frito-lay-sunchips-samples/ Tell them to remove the GMOs! by Christina Sarich  Posted on November 30, 2015 Independent labs have found that 100% of the corn tested in Frito-Lay’s Sun Chips, marketed as a ‘better snack food’ which could reduce heart disease, is full of GM Bt toxic pesticide and glyphosate (an herbicide chemical). Don’t let PepsiCo, the owner of Frito-Lay, get away with selling this processed food meant for the garbage bin. GMO Free USA sent samples of SunChips to an independent lab to test for GMO content and glyphosate residue. The results came back leaving no question – GM corn (grown with Bt toxins, a registered pesticide) and glyphosate traces were throughout all samples. No wonder PepsiCo, the owner of Frito-Lay, doesn’t want its customers to know when they are eating GMOs; their ‘food’ is full of the stuff. PepsiCo has been one of the largest monetary contributors to campaigns against GMO labeling. Pepsi contributed over $8.1 million to defeat citizens’ ballot initiatives in California ($2,485,400), Washington ($1,620,899), Colorado ($1,650,000), and Oregon ($2,350,000), and spent an additional $5.06 million on lobbying in 2013 ($2,720,000) and 2014 (first 2 quarters of 2014: $2,340,000). For all of those GM supporters who think the results are biased: “The glyphosate residue test was conducted by an accredited lab using the Specific LC/MS/MS testing method with a minimum detectable level of 0.02 ppm. The test documented the presence of glyphosate in SunChips at a level of…

Actions Worldwide to Ban Monsanto ‘Roundup’ Glyphosate : Institute of Science in Society

By | Breaking News (Educational Comments only), Uncategorized | No Comments

This link summarizes the global response triggered by the WHO confirmation of glyphosate as a “probably carcinogen.” Note, Denmark removes the ‘probable.’ http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_analysis/2904602/endgame_for_glyphosate_the_global_fallout_of_whos_probable_carcinogen_classification.html Endgame for glyphosate? The global fallout of WHO’s ‘probable carcinogen’ classification Dr Eva Sirinathsinghji 12th June 2015 WHO’s official recognition of the health damage caused by glyphosate, the world’s most widely used herbicide, is having ramifications around the world, writes Dr Eva Sirinathsinghji. National governments are moving to restrict the chemical, campaigns to ban it are intensifying, and now ‘Roundup Ready’ GMO crops are coming under the regulatory spotlight. The fight against glyphosate is gaining momentum, and where governments are not stepping up to enforce bans, citizens and private companies are taking it upon themselves with major successes. Could it be that the World Health Organisation’s classification of glyphosate as a ‘probable carcinogen’ (see [1] Glyphosate ‘Probably Carcinogenic to Humans’ Latest WHO Assessment, SiS 66) will be the final nail in the coffin for the world’s most popular herbicide and Monsanto’s flagship product. Recent weeks have seen the intensification of campaigns to ban or remove the product as well as lawsuits being filed against Monsanto; in the US for false safety claims of glyphosate, and in China, for hiding toxicity studies from the public. El Salvador has already banned the chemical though yet to be signed into law [2], while the Netherlands last year banned private sales [3]. Sri Lanka had a partial ban in place in regions most afflicted by chronic kidney disease that has been…
