The Impacts of Roundup (Glyphosate): Immune Suppression, Total Corporate Control over Agriculture, Destruction of the Family Farm – Global Research

The war is on. A crucial weapon in the attack is Roundup (glyphosate), a herbicide that’s being used for something for which it was never intended[1]: the forced ripening of crops, called desiccation, all but guaranteeing it will wind up in our food.

Roundup hinders biosynthesis by poisoning the shikimate pathway in plants. Humans don’t rely on the same chemistry as plants, but we were never supposed to actually eat this herbicide in food. It turns out our bodies rely on trillions of microorganisms integral to our immune systems that do employ the shikimate pathway, which means Roundup contributes directly to the suppression of our immune systems.[2]

Ignoring this, Bayer execs seek to dominate the fast-growing desiccation market, and have purchased Monsanto and, along with it, thousands of lawsuits filed by people who claim to have contracted cancer while applying Roundup. None of these lawsuits are from consumers who have inadvertently consumed Roundup in their food because it will forever remain impossible to clinically prove one’s immune system may have been impacted so long as conventional medicine fails to help us boost overall health, pushing patented, pharmaceutical vaccinations instead. In fact, the government has never required any long-term research into the possible immunological impact of Roundup, and shows no interest in doing so.

Don’t bother looking, and you won’t find any bad news, is the maxim being applied. And it’s working marvelously.

Strangely, none of the settlements to date against Bayer have been for farmers. Wouldn’t farmers be the first to succumb to illness if Roundup (glyphosate) was a carcinogen and applying it was the problem? Does this mean the Roundup lawsuits are just a diversionary tactic in a much larger battle?

Shareholders are certainly worried. But Bayer executives have everything to gain from a protracted legal battle, replete with dire headlines warning that Roundup is dangerous, so long as no one figures out that the real problem isn’t with people applying Roundup; it’s with people eating it.

Anyone who believes Werner Baumann, the CEO of Bayer, made a big mistake when he signed the deal to buy Monsanto, doesn’t understand his role in the globalist agenda. To say nothing of the crucial role Roundup is potentially playing in the Covid-19 “pandemic” through immune suppression,

Glyphosate and Roundup Proven to Disrupt Gut Microbiome by Inhibiting Shikimate Pathway – Global Research


12-12-19 04:15:00,

Fatty liver disease and death of liver tissue were also confirmed in rats fed regulatory permitted and thus presumed safe doses of the weedkiller

The primary mechanism of how glyphosate herbicides kill plants is by inhibiting an enzyme called EPSPS, which is part of a biochemical pathway known as the shikimate pathway. The shikimate pathway is responsible for the synthesis of certain aromatic amino acids that are vital for the production of proteins, the building blocks of life. Thus when the synthesis of the aromatic amino acids is blocked by glyphosate inhibition of EPSPS, the plant dies.

Humans and animals do not have the shikimate pathway, so industry and regulators have claimed that glyphosate is nontoxic to humans.[1] However, some strains of gut bacteria do have the shikimate pathway, leading to much debate about whether Roundup and glyphosate could affect the gut microbiome (bacterial populations). Imbalances in gut bacteria have been found to be linked with many diseases, including cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and depression.

As many species of gut bacteria do have the shikimate pathway, scientists have hypothesised that glyphosate herbicides could inhibit the EPSPS enzyme of the shikimate pathway in these organisms, leading to imbalance in the microbiome, with potentially negative health consequences. Some have proposed that if glyphosate herbicides do disrupt the gut microbiome, EPSPS inhibition will be the primary mechanism through which this occurs.

However, proof that glyphosate herbicides can inhibit the EPSPS enzyme and the shikimate pathway in gut bacteria has been lacking. But a new study has proven beyond doubt that this does indeed happen.

The study in rats by an international team of scientists based in London, France, Italy, and the Netherlands, led by Dr Michael Antoniou of King’s College London and posted on the pre-peer-review site BioRxiv, has found that Roundup herbicide and its active ingredient glyphosate cause a dramatic increase in the levels of two substances, shikimic acid and 3-dehydroshikimic acid, in the gut, which are a direct indication that the EPSPS enzyme of the shikimic acid pathway has been severely inhibited.

In addition, the researchers found that both Roundup and glyphosate affected the microbiome at all dose levels tested, causing shifts in bacterial populations.

Ein Kommentar von Rüdiger Lenz.

Ja, das liebe kleine Glyphomäuschen, alle habe es lieb gewonnen. Vor allem die Pflanzen und Insekten, die davon enorm profitieren. Die Pflanzen, weil sie, davon einmal besprüht, riesige Rendite versprechen und die vielen Insekten, die sich jetzt nicht mehr stressen müssen, sich um Nachwuchs sorgen müssen, ständig was zu fressen finden müssen und dann noch sich vor Fressfeinden schützen müssen. Etwas aussterben zu lassen, darin liegt die Rendite. Für das alles heißt die tolle Lösung Glyphosat oder auch Roundup. Es lässt genau die Insekten in großer Würde und Gnade aussterben, die von ihrem eigenen Leben völlig gestresst sind. Großartig, dieses Glypholein.

Stresst es die Pflanzen auch, wenn sie unter den Bedingungen der Agrarwirtschaft zum Wachstum in Unfruchtbarkeit gezwungen und in Reihe und Glied gesät, kurz leben dürfen? Wie oft düngt und spritzt der Bauer seine Felder, damit die Kasse dann auch stimmt? Sechs Mal? Acht Mal? So genau weiß das wohl niemand, außer der Landwirt. Wie oft wird Glyphosat pro Saison auf die Felder gespritzt? 

Wie Tiere in ihren Wachstumsanstalten optimiert werden, für das saftige und vor allem billige Stück Fleisch, das weiß der Bürger oftmals ganz genau. Viele wollen deswegen einfach kein Fleisch mehr essen, weinen sogar, wenn sie Viehtransportern plötzlich auf der Straße begegnen. Schon vor längerer Zeit ist genau deswegen eine völlig neue Esskultur entstanden. Die vegetarische und die vegane Esskultur. Vegetarier essen kein Fleisch. Darauf beschränken sie ihre Esskultur. Veganer hingegen essen gar keine tierischen Produkte, von denen sie wissen, dass diese durch Qualen, durch Ausbeutung oder durch Töten der Tiere hervorgegangen sind. Ein Veganer nimmt auch keinerlei Produkte zu sich, die durch Tierversuche entwickelt wurden. Lederprodukte werden auch gemieden.

In letzter Zeit frage ich mich ernsthaft, ob nicht gleiches auch für Gemüse und Obst gilt? Wie verhält es sich mit dem Mais, dem Reis, dem Weizen, den Erdbeeren, den Äpfeln oder Bananen und den anderen zahlreichen Obst- und Gemüsesorten, die wir via Produkt-Handelskette zu uns nehmen? Alle Nutzpflanzen wie auch alle Nutztiere, die via Industrie in unsere Nahrungskette gelangen,

Monsanto’s Roundup Weed Killer Found In Top Beer And Wind Brands


28-02-19 08:36:00,

A new report by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) Education Fund reveals that many beers and wine sold across the US contain toxic glyphosate from weedkiller.

PIRG tested five wines, 14 beers and one hard cider for the study. The wine brands were Barefoot, Beringer, Frey (organic), Inkarri Estates (organic), and Sutter Home. The beers tested were from Budweiser, Coors, Corona, Guinness, Heineken, Miller, Peak (organic), Sam Adams, Samuel Smith (organic), Sierra Nevada, Stella Artois, Tsingtao and New Belgium. Ace Perry Hard Cider was also tested.

The study determined that popular beers like Coors, Budweiser, and Corona Extra contained an average of roughly 28 parts per billion (ppb). Tsingtao, the outlier, contained a whopping 49.7 ppb. 

Glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicides across the US and is the active ingredient in products such as Roundup, Rodeo Aquatic Herbicide, and Eraser. The toxic chemical is a broad-spectrum herbicide that kills plants but has also been linked to cancer in humans by the World Health Organization.

Sutter Home Merlot had the highest concentrations of glyphosate of all 20 brands, at 51 ppb. Beringer Estates Moscato and Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon had slightly smaller levels of the chemical.

This mind-numbing revelation was published on the same day as a San Francisco court began hearing arguments in the first federal civil case over whether Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer causes cancer.

“When you’re having a beer or a glass of wine, the last thing you want to think about is that it includes a potentially dangerous pesticide,” said U.S. PIRG Education Fund’s Kara Cook-Schultz, who authored the study.

“No matter the efforts of brewers and vintners, we found that it is incredibly difficult to avoid the troubling reality that consumers will likely drink glyphosate at every happy hour and backyard barbeque around the country.”

The study also found that herbicides like Roundup are prohibited in the making of organic beers and wines, but somehow, glyphosate was discovered in three of the four organic alcoholic beverages tested.

While the results are below the EPA’s risk tolerances for alcoholic beverages, at least one study noticed that as little as one part per trillion of glyphosate can trigger the growth of breast cancer cells and disrupt the endocrine system.

Roundup for Breakfast: Monsanto’s Weed Killer Found in All Kids’ Cereals Sampled – Global Research


12-11-18 11:03:00,

A second round of tests commissioned by the Environmental Working Group found the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer in every sample of popular oat-based cereal and other oat-based food marketed to children. These test results fly in the face of claims by two companies, Quaker and General Mills, which have said there is no reason for concern. This is because, they say, their products meet the legal standards.

Yet almost all of the samples tested by EWG had residues of glyphosate at levels higher than what EWG scientists consider protective of children’s health with an adequate margin of safety. The EWG findings of a chemical identified as probably carcinogenic by the World Health Organization come on the heels of a major study published in JAMA Internal Medicine that found a significant reduction in cancer risk for individuals who ate a lot of organic food.

The tests detected glyphosate in all 28 samples of products made with conventionally grown oats. All but two of the 28 samples had levels of glyphosate above EWG’s health benchmark of 160 parts per billion, or ppb.

Products tested by Anresco Laboratories in San Francisco included 10 samples of different types of General Mills’ Cheerios and 18 samples of different Quaker brand products from PepsiCo, including instant oatmeal, breakfast cereal and snack bars. The highest level of glyphosate found by the lab was 2,837 ppb in Quaker Oatmeal Squares breakfast cereal, nearly 18 times higher than EWG’s children’s health benchmark.

New EWG Tests Find Glyphosate in All Cheerios and Quaker Oats Cereals Sampled

Test information: EWG scientists purchased products in grocery stores in the San Francisco Bay area and Washington, DC, area. Either one or two different samples were purchased for testing, depending on the type of product. Approximately 300 grams of each product were packaged and shipped to Anresco Laboratories, in San Francisco. Glyphosate levels were analyzed by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry method, with the limit of quantification of 10 ppb. Testing methodology is described here. A PDF of the testing results is available here.
