Interesting New Info on the Health Dangers of Conventionally-Grown Foods (video)

Here’s a video by Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a professor from MIT who also lives in Hawaii part of the year.  She has done amazing research on the effects of glyphosate (the main active ingredient in Roundup© herbicide, the world’s biggest selling chemical).  In this video she discusses its connection to major health problems.  People have been led to believe that Roundup© is safe, however it is now known to be an endocrine disruptor in parts per trillion!  The manufacturer, Monsanto, hid animal studies which resulted in cancer, but the data has now surfaced.  The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared glyphosate a probable human carcinogen–classified “probable” due to the lack of human studies.

Dr. Seneff has a lot more videos on YouTube and published scientific papers alerting people of the dangers and how to overcome the problems.  One of the main things is to eat organically grown foods that are nutrient dense and free of toxic agricultural chemicals.  By definition, organic foods are GMO-free.  Just avoiding GMOs is not enough because even many non-GMO crops like wheat, other grains, beans, etc. are sprayed with Roundup© just prior to harvest.   Roundup© is systemic, which means it can’t be washed off the food.  Meat and dairy animals in our country are mainly fed GMO feeds with high levels of glyphosate.  This comes through to the consumers of the meat and dairy products.  Even fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds can be contaminated.

Also, don’t use Roundup© in your yard!  Members of my community are working to stop the roadside spraying of this chemical by the county.  Many countries have already banned its use entirely.  It needs to be banned worldwide!

Dr. Don Huber Shares Critical Information on GMOs and Glyphosate (RoundUp®)

Dr. Don Huber, professor emeritus from Purdue, has spent many years teaching students how to grow better crops. Currently, he is focusing on disseminating information on the dangers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the herbicide glyphosate (commonly available as RoundUp®). Most grocery store items contain one or both. Major GMO crops are engineered to withstand heavy use of glyphosate, hence the term “RoundUp® Ready”. So the cultivation of GMO crops results in the use of more chemicals, not less. These GMO crops have significantly less nutrition than non-GMO crops because glyphosate ties up soil nutrients and kills beneficial microorganisms which make nutrients available to plants.

At a recent meeting in Kailua-Kona, here on the Big Island of Hawai`i, Dr. Huber shared a Power Point presentation with many shocking slides. Thousands of studies show the dangerous health effects of the use of GMOs and glyphosate (RoundUp®). Their use has been positively correlated to the sudden rise in various diseases such as diabetes, autism, celiac disease, Alzheimer’s, kidney disease, acute allergies, and liver disease, as well as reproductive failures, miscarriages and birth defects (see charts below).
