Recently information has come to light in regards to a few different theories previously labeled as “conspiracy” that have proven those thought to be crazy as justified in their suspicions all along. One of the most shocking was the released statement by a CDC official showcasing extremely damning information that demonstrates a substantial link between vaccines and autism that was intentionally disregarded and then destroyed. Despite the efforts of many still attempting to ignore this blatant admission, there is no way to misunderstand this information. Obvious links to autism were found, and instead of making the public aware, the information was destroyed. This does not mean vaccines are inherently dangerous, the reality is quite the opposite, it simply means that the forced vaccination laws are unreasonable at best, and the many who were outspoken in its opposition were right in doing so. This should open the eyes of everyone previously set on blindly believing those controlling the flow of information. This country has long since kept the average citizen’s best interest in mind. Another rectified “conspiracy theory” is that of Monsanto and its cancer causing “Roundup.”
It was announced that the California Environmental Protection Agency is going to label Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide as a cancer-causing chemical. This product has recently been under fire as the world begins to recognize the dangers behind the product’s main ingredient, glyphosate, due to it being carcinogenic. In the past year, government agencies have finally caught up with activists who have been protesting against Monsanto and their dangerous products for years.
A statement released by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced that glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide “Roundup,” is a “probable
carcinogen.” A scientific working group consisting of seventeen experts from eleven countries released their evaluation of the herbicide glyphosate and four organophosphate insecticides. The group report indicated that Monsanto’s glyphosate, the most widely used herbicide in the world, “sufficiently demonstrated” that this substance caused cancer in animals. According to multiple reports, Monsanto was well aware that this chemical caused cancer for decades yet still continued to sell it.
The President of Sri Lanka, Maithripala Sirisenarecently, recently banned the import of the herbicide glyphosate citing recent studies which showed that glyphosate causes kidney disease and cancer. According to Sustainable Pulse, a series of recent studies led by Dr. Jayasumana showed that,
“drinking water from abandoned wells, where the concentrations of glyphosate and metals are higher, as well as spraying glyphosate, increased the risk of the deadly chronic kidney disease (CKDu) by up to 5-fold.”
French environment and energy minister Segolene Royal announced a ban on selling Monsanto’s Roundup in garden centers.
“France must be on the offensive with regards to the banning of pesticides. I have asked garden centers to stop putting Monsanto’s Roundup on sale” Royal said in a recent interview.
It was announced that over 30,000 doctors and health experts throughout Latin America are demanding that Monsanto’s products be banned.
“In our country glyphosate is applied on more than 28 million hectares. Each year, the soil is sprayed with more than 320 million liters, which means that 13 million people are at risk of being affected, according to the Physicians Network of Sprayed Peoples (RMPF),” Argentina’s union of medical professionals, Fesprosa said in a statement.
The United States is well behind the rest of the world on many environmental imperatives, Roundup in particular. It’s worth mentioning that more than sixty countries now require mandatory GMO labelling, which the U.S. deftly ignored despite the wide-spread public demand. Other countries to ban Roundup are the Netherlands, Columbia, Cameroon and most recently Bermuda.
“Effective immediately, all importers of glyphosate/Roundup will be notified that the approval for all glyphosate products has been suspended, pending the continuing assessment of the emerging research.” – Jeanne Atherden, Bermuda Minister of Health
Round-up has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, autism, cancer, kidney, birth defects, and more. The most disturbing fact is that studies have shown that Roundup herbicide is over one hundred times more toxic than regulators claim. A new study published in the journal Biomedical Research International shows that Roundup herbicide comprises a chemical cocktail 125 times more toxic than its active ingredient glyphosate studied in isolation. The true question is how this product was ever allowed to be distributed in the first place.
The previously labeled “conspiracy theorists” rejoice in their validation as the truth comes out. However it is with a bittersweet ending when the realization sinks in that the government officials that are supposed to be invested in the well-being of the American people have not only lied, but financially backed companies that knowingly distributed products that are harmful in order to increase their profit. Worse yet, these companies chose to hide the information showing the harmful effects of its products so business as usual could continue; never mind the millions of families suffering the side-effects. This should be a wakeup call to the American people. There are those out there still attempting to do some good, however, there are also those, especially in positions of power and prestige, that no longer care about the people; only about the ever-increasing wealth of themselves and their true constituents: the corporations funding their campaigns.
