WHERE IS OUR GOVERNMENT? One would think that the first duty of our government would be to protect us, yet it appears they are doing the opposite. One of the more recent acts of stupidity is allowing a GMO that allows a glyphosate-based herbicide (GBH), Monsanto’s Roundup, to be sprayed on crops meant for our consumption. In a recent report in the Journal of Environmental Health some of the grossly underestimated risks of GBH use were revealed. One danger, not anticipated, is that GBH can last up to one year in the soil and can build up over time. Some of the effects to the consumer are liver and kidney damage, hormone problems and disturbance of the bacteria in our digestive system. Presently there are no studies being done in regard to these dangers. To add insult to injury, the use of GBH has a damaging effect on the soil which relies on the normal weeds for its rejuvenation. The dirt found in farms using this herbicide has become hard and compact, making it even difficult for the crops to obtain nutrition. Fertile soil is a very important resource of any nation, yet this abomination of a practice is destroying this resource. Certain butterflies rely on special weeds for their survival along with many organisms. Who cares about soil and insects when more profits can be made? It is quite clear that a monster cover-up is taking place and I am sure further research will find many more health risks and birth defects associated with this practice motivated by greed, and supported by neglect. Don’t hold your breath waiting for someone to do something. There are powerful forces aligned against what needs to be done. You Must Take Action. What Can You Do? Take every effort to avoid foods that may contain GBH or GMO grains, like those found in packaged foods containing corn, wheat or soybeans. Over 90% of soybean samples in one study contained GBH. Shop organic. If you must buy breakfast cereal, make sure it is not a GMO grain. I would strongly suggest research into the GBH levels found in grain-fed meat. They are even feeding grain to farmed salmon. America is the sickest developed nation in the world considering we, by far, spend the most money on healthcare. Something must be done to shake up the present system that is contributing to this ugly reality.

In the majority of my most successful treatments, diet and lifestyle changes were essential. In some cases another health problem was the root of symptoms. In other cases, multiple prescriptions with multiple side effects contributed. Anything that diminishes one’s health can cause a multitude of symptoms. Sadly, it looks like even profits in the medical industry will be helped by Monsanto.
