Scientists Discover Ingredient Within Monsanto’s Roundup Herbicide That Suffocates Human Cells

Published

on

Monsanto’s Roundup, used in yards, farms, and parks around the globe, has been a top-selling weed killer, despite the controversial claims against it, which include its main ingredient, glyphosate, being declared by an international agency to be a “probable human carcinogen.”

The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has since followed suit, labeling glyphosate a carcinogen, while Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich announced that Russia had “made the decision not to use any GMO in food productions.”

A French court found Monsanto guilty of lying in 2009, having falsely advertised its Roundup herbicide as “biodegradable” and “environmentally friendly,” and claiming it “left the soil clean.”

Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), revealed an even more disturbing truth: glyphosate is possibly “the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies.” Autism, gastrointestinal diseases, allergies, cardiovascular disease, depression, cancer, infertility, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and ALS are just some of the diseases and conditions mentioned.

New Research

Now researchers believe Roundup’s inert ingredients can kill human cells, specifically embryonic, placental, and umbilical cord cells. The findings intensify the extreme debate regarding ‘inerts,’ which are solvents, preservatives, surfactants, and other substances added to pesticides by manufacturers.

Health studies have mainly focused on the safety of glyphosate as opposed to the mixture of ingredients found in Roundup, but this new study discovered that Roundup’s inert ingredients amplified the toxic effect on human cells, even when the concentrations were more diluted than the ones used on farms and lawns.

Among the inert ingredients is polyethoxylated tallowamine, or POEA, which the study found to be more deadly to human embryonic, placental, and umbilical cord cells than the herbicide itself.

“This clearly confirms that the [inert ingredients] in Roundup formulations are not inert,” explained 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” commonly found on Roundup-treated crops, like soybeans, alfalfa, and corn.

The team of researchers believe Roundup may cause pregnancy problems by interfering with hormone production. This could result in abnormal fetal development, low birth weights, or miscarriages.

Nevertheless, Monsanto, Roundup’s manufacturer, says that the study’s methods don’t reflect realistic conditions.

“Roundup has one of the most extensive human health safety and environmental data packages of any pesticide that’s out there,” announced Monsanto spokesman John Combest. “It’s used in public parks, it’s used to protect schools. There’s been a great deal of study on Roundup, and we’re very proud of its performance.”

Meanwhile, the EPA touts glyphosate as having low toxicity when used at the recommended doses, and says there is strong evidence that it doesn’t cause cancer in humans. “Risk estimates for glyphosate were well below the level of concern,” noted EPA spokesman Dale Kemery. The EPA has also classified POEA as safe to public health and the environment.

But the French team behind this new study begs to differ: “The authorizations for using these Roundup herbicides must now clearly be revised since their toxic effects depend on, and are multiplied by, other compounds used in the mixtures.”

Inert ingredients are typically less scrutinized than active pest-killing ingredients, but it doesn’t make them any better. Caroline Cox, research director of the Center for Environmental Health, an Oakland-based environmental organization, says the term itself is often misleading, since federal law classifies all pesticide ingredients that don’t harm pests as ‘inert.’ But this only means they don’t kill insects or weeds, not that they are necessarily biologically or toxicologically harmless.

Some inert ingredients have even been found to potentially harm human health. A Croatian team recently discovered that an herbicide formulation containing atrazine caused DNA damage, which can lead to cancer, though atrazine alone did not.

“POEA helps glyphosate interact with the surfaces of plant cells,” noted Negin Martin, a scientist at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in North Carolina. It causes water’s surface tension to lower, thus aiding glyphosate in dispersing and penetrating the waxy surface of a plant.

For the French study, researchers tested four different Roundup formulations, all of which contained POEA and glyphosate at concentrations below the recommended lawn and agricultural dose. They even tested the two separately in order to distinguish what caused more damage to embryonic, placental, and umbilical cord cells. They discovered that glyphosate, POEA, and all four Roundup formulations damaged all three cell types. Umbilical cord cells were especially sensitive to POEA, glyphosate became more harmful when combined with POEA, and POEA alone was the deadliest to cells in comparison to glyphosate.

The researchers found that the two ingredients work together to “limit breathing of the cells, stress them and drive them towards a suicide,” according to Seralini.

Monsanto scientists claim the cells in the study were exposed to unnaturally high levels of the chemicals, however. “It’s very unlike anything you’d see in real-world exposure. People’s cells are not bathed in these things,” explained Donna Farmer, another toxicologist at Monsanto.

But Seralini’s team did multiple concentrations of Roundup, and still saw cell damage at all concentrations.

Dan Goldstein, a toxicologist with Monsanto, claimed the study didn’t use very good models of a whole organism, such as a human being, but Cox says it is lab experiments like these that help determine if a chemical is safe or not.

“We would never consider it ethical to test these products on people, so we’re obliged to look at their effects on other species and in other systems,” she explained. “There’s really no way around that.”

Other researchers have found results similar to those of the Seralini group’s. In 2005, University of Pittsburg ecologists put Roundup in ponds filled with frog and toad tadpoles, ensuring they used the manufacturer’s recommended dose. Two weeks later, they discovered 50 to 100 percent of the populations of several species of tadpoles were dead.

Now, a group of more than 250 environmental, health, and labour organizations has petitioned the EPA to alter their requirements for identifying pesticides’ inert ingredients. The decision for the agency to grant the petition is due this fall.

“It would be a big step for the agency to take,” Cox noted. “But it’s one they definitely should.”

Al Sharpton Cancels NYC ‘Vaccine Forum’ Amid Pressure From Physicians – But It’s Happening Anyway

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Amid pressure from scientists and physicians, Al Sharpton cancels vaccine forum event aimed at educating the public about potential vaccine dangers. But the event is still on in a new location!

  • Reflect On:

    Why such a concerted effort from the establishment to shut down public events aimed at educating people about safety concerns regarding vaccines? If there was nothing to hide, why shut them down so aggressively?

The Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network were set to host a “vaccine forum” on Oct 19th, 2019 in Harlem that would feature speakers focused on raising awareness about vaccine injuries and lack of vaccine safety.

The event was going to take place at National Action Network’s headquarters on 145th Street, and Sharpton was slated to welcome guests, alongside Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is currently suing New York State for removing the option for parents to exercise religious exemptions to vaccines.

After the event was shut down at NAN due to pressure from prominent vaccine supporters, the location was moved to an Assembly Hall at Riverside Church. (More details below.)

Dr. Peter Hotez, who has refused to publicly debate Robert F Kennedy Jr on the matters of vaccine safety, was one of the individuals trying to shut down the event. When speaking of Sharpton he stated:

“His organization should not be hosting this event,” he said. “He should not be appearing at this event. This is an event which is intended to deliberately work towards depriving kids in Harlem of their life-saving vaccines and to make parents question the safety of those vaccines.”

Not all share Hotez’s opinion that vaccines are a safe, one size fits all pharmaceutical. And there is much evidence to support those doubts. Hence why the vaccine awareness movement is rapidly growing, it’s evidence based and that’s becoming more obvious as each day goes by.

If there was no evidence vaccines come with serious dangers, this argument would have died out years ago. Take for example the resurgence of topics like flat earth, it had celebrity backing and was an internet phenomenon, but it died off quickly as there simply is no evidence to support the idea. With vaccines, it’s much different. More and more prominent, credible and credentialed individuals are joining the movement because the evidence continues to mount. Their goal is to assess vaccine safety and stop government from trying to force vaccines on everyone due to pharmaceutical pressures.

Dr. Sean O’Leary with the American Academy of Pediatrics also outspoken about the event:

“Just when we get done with the measles outbreak, actions like this threaten the public’s health by starting another measles outbreak, […] Here, in another part of New York City, we have folks ready to go into a community and spread more misinformation and pseudoscience.”

Again, more misinformed and opinionated statements from individuals that perhaps are simply not attempting to see the truth or who are pressured not to speak the truth. The body of evidence that expresses the lack of vaccine safety is vast. For example, a pilot study by the Federal Agency for Health Care Research found that 1 in 39 kids are injured by vaccines in some way, contrary to the estimate put forth by the CDC that suggests 1 in a million are injured –  that’s quite the gap.

It brings up the question, if there is nothing to hide in the actions of pharmaceutical companies, why are they protected by laws from ever being sued for vaccine injuries and harm? Why are public debates on the issue always cancelled? Why does the media work so hard to turn people to question things into ‘antivaxxers?’ Why do we (CE) had our reach limited on Facebook and receive ‘fake news’ strikes every time we report on vaccines? – even when the information is completely fact based…

Because there is something to hide here. If there was nothing to hide, big pharma and their control over congress, government, media, some scientists and doctors would not be working so hard to shut down people who have figured out the truth.

“It is a grave warning sign for American democracy that the pharmaceutical industry is now so powerful that it can silence debate, even in the traditional heart of civil rights activism” – Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

If you are in the New York area, you can attend this free public event to understand more about vaccines safety on October 19th,  2019.

Speakers include: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.; Sheila Ealey; John Gilmore; Dr. Phil Valentine; Curtis Cost; Dr. Lawrence Palevsky; Reverend Walter Sotelo; Mary Holland; Gary Null; Mitchel Cohen; and many more.

The event time and location is as follows:

Saturday, October 19th, 1:00-4:0 p.m.
Assembly Hall at Riverside Church
91 Claremont Avenue, New York, NY

Tulsi Gabbard Just Called Hillary Clinton The “Embodiment Of Corruption” And Much More

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Hillary Clinton just referred to Tulsi Gabbard as a Russian asset in an interview. Tulsi comes back at her on Twitter, exposing the true face of Clinton.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it not important we have more public conversations about the true nature of the politicians we vote for?

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has recently suggested that she thinks Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, is being “groomed” by Russia to run as a third-party candidate in 2020. Of course, she supplied no evidence of this, but using “Russia” in any sentence in the US is a sure-fire way of striking fear in people about someone.

In an interview with David Plouff, Obama’s former campaign manager, Clinton said:

“They’re also going to do third-party again, “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on someone who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.”

Again, step out of part politics for a second, are we really going to pretend this is about parties and not the global elite being upset at someone who’s ruining their show? Think about it, Clinton used Facebook, Google, YouTube and almost every media outlet in the US to manipulate the public into thinking she was a viable candidate. Trump was keen to use social media, and played the role of causing drama, but at least he was transparent about it. Clinton on the other hand, is precisely what Gabbard stated about her in a follow-up Tweet to Clinton’s remarks.

When it comes to the US’ involvement in war, which Gabbard has been rightly critical about, she has also said that Trump “has the blood of the Kurds on his hands” but explained that she holds both parties responsible for supporting what she described as a “regime-change war.” Accurately seeing that this is not about parties but about deep state agendas.

The Takeaway

As we often say in step 1 of The CE Protocol, we have to break the illusion of the world around us. Events like this indicate that there is a greater desire for people to speak up and expose what many people have known for a long time but has never received the attention it deserves. Gabbard in this case is helping the American public see more clearly the true nature of some of the politicians at play and the actions they take.

When we learn to see these actions more clearly we can call into question whether or not our voting processes or systems are truly representative of what people want or whether they are just there to tell a story to the people – one that isn’t true – so money and power can be made and maintained at the elite level.

Needing to have open and public conversations about this type of stuff, moving beyond the mainstream media created celebrity status of various candidates, is important so that people can begin to see the truth – see the person behind the mask. This is partly what people see with Trump, the truth of what politicians look like, act like and where their agendas lie. It’s all laid bare. Whether or not you agree or disagree with it is up to you to decide, because at least now it can be seen clearly. Especially if you avoid mainstream media’s coverage of it.

This is Not A Movie, It’s October 1st, 2019 In Hong Kong

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Protests in Hong Kong rose to many tense moments over the past few months. This video footage shows clashes between riot police and protesters on Kowloon’s Nathan Road.

  • Reflect On:

    Have people reached a breaking point when it comes to how often they are not heard by governments?

In the video below, what looks like a Hollywood movie is the reality just a couple of weeks ago in Hong Kong. Riot police and protesters have been clashing for months as the streets become filled with hundreds of tear gas canisters and Molotov cocktails. Having covered the G20 summit in Toronto, these scenes appear much more tense than what I saw during those protests, and even those were filled with vandalism, pepper spray, burning cars and rubber bullets.

We’ve covered the Hong Kong protests a couple of times here on CE, including a full segment on CETV here.

There are obviously two perspectives as to what is going on, the Mainland China perspective and that of the Hong Kong protesters who feel Mainland China is acting wrongly. From the perspective of Mainland China, the protests in Hong Kong are fundamentally the result of Western interference and attempts at a ‘soft recolonization’ of Hong Kong. Their arguments have some merit.

From the Hongkongers perspective,  tensions rose after the introduction of an extradition bill that threatened residents’ freedoms. Protesters are demanding Hong Kong’s chief executive Carrie Lam resigns. They are also calling for:

  • The complete withdrawal of the proposed extradition bill
  • The government to withdraw the use of the word “riot” in relation to protests
  • The unconditional release of arrested protesters and charges against them dropped
  • An independent inquiry into police behaviour
  • Implementation of genuine universal suffrage

As with many things people are feeling at the moment, big government has been overreaching for quite some time, and freedoms continue to be cut while quality of life in our fast-paced modern society diminishes. What we must remember when viewing these issues is we can’t singularly look at each one and determine whether it’s right or wrong so easily. People are exposed to ‘hits’ from every direction to their wallets, freedom, health, lifestyle and psyche and our world is reflecting the feeling that ‘enough is enough.’

Since much of the time we aren’t sure what else to do, people fight back, they do what they think will lead them to being heard and having a solution brought forth. is this the best way forward? Perhaps not, but when it becomes clear to people that their governments and the voting process do not work in their benefit nor favor, this is sometimes what they revert to.
