When will the US EPA ban this poison? Action Alert!
Mexico recently joined a host of other countries in phasing out the use of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the world’s most popular herbicide, Roundup. The US Environmental Protection Agency, however, has remained committed to protecting Big Ag and keeping glyphosate on the market; similar government cronyism from Congress and the USDA has allowed Big Food to hide the GMO content of food. These are two more examples of the government undermining our health—we must push back.
The US court system has affirmed the danger of glyphosate. There have been multiple decisions to award plaintiffs tens of millions of dollars who have been made sick by glyphosate: Dewayne Johnson was awarded $78 million after a jury found that Bayer/Monsanto failed to warn consumers of cancer risk from use of Roundup; a year later in a separate case, a husband and wife were awarded $87 million after a jury found that Roundup caused their illness.
Glyphosate is of course inextricably linked with genetically modified foods; crops are genetically modified to withstand being sprayed with Roundup. We know that Congress sold the American public up the river by passing an industry-friendly GMO “labeling” bill that allows industry to obfuscate the contents of food in a scannable QR code that most people won’t see.
There is some hope. A group of organizations and retailers, including the Center for Food Safety and Natural Grocers, have sued the USDA over the GMO labeling rule. The lawsuit makes a number of arguments that echo many of the points raised by ANH when the USDA’s labeling rule was initially released. The suit challenges the use of QR codes, the USDA’s insistence on the term “bioengineered” when most people better understand the terms “GMO” or “GE,” and the exclusion of highly refined GMO foods from the labeling requirement.
Federal agencies are more than happy to keep dangerous products like Roundup and genetically engineered foods on the market, but spring into action when doctors discuss the proven benefits of natural medicines, such as censoring a nutritionist for sharing basic information about what studies are saying about the importance of vitamin D for COVID-19. We need to reform a healthcare system that not only bars the use, but even the mention, of natural remedies that have not been, and never can be, put through the multi-billion-dollar FDA approval process.

Who ever thought putting poison on our food was a good idea? It is not.
Stop poisoning us with pesticides
My beautiful daughter died of cancer. She had been assigned roundup in grad school at a biological station in Florida to control invasive species in the mid nineties. Maybe Monsanto helped fund the place. I wrote the station hoping they would not subject other grad students to glyphosates.
What do our taxes pay for? Our protection? We can hope the EPA will be taken back by the resisting EIP.
Seems corporations control our ‘would be’ democracy. We have spoken out about this and see the rest of the world banning it. It’s more than disheartening.
FOLLOW THE $. WHO IN WASHINGTON IS RECEIVING PAY FOR GLYPHOSATE TO PLAY?
THANK YOU For all you do to educate us on our health and the honesty we all need to hear about the lies Big Pharma and Big Ag have been telling us.
Herbicides, Pesticides and Glyphosate are very dangerous to our health! Especially to our digestive systems. They cause Celiac Disease, Leaky Gut Permeability Disease, and Thyroid Malfunction. These deadly pesticides are wreaking havoc on most of us! These deadly pesticides should have been BANNED and OUTLAWED a long time ago. Please have these pesticides stopped immediately – they need to be BANNED and OUTLAWED from further use ASAP.
Many supplements are more effective, and of course safer than, their pharmaceutical counterparts. People should be allowed to choose whether or not to try alternative medicines. So many health problems relate to the over – prescribing of pharmaceuticals. Have you ever seen how many drugs your average old person takes? It’s crazy! People in other countries take far less drugs…remaining mobile longer, functional longer, etc. We desperately need to reverse this trend! If we don’t give people the option of trying alternatives, it’s going to cost us far more, as a nation, to deal with all these people taking all these harsh, often interacting medicines. Please allow people a choice!
Actually, it’s more like a 3-ring circus t o keep BIG PHARMA, the INSURANCE INDUSTRY and the SUPER-SIZE FARMS in the money-flow, while docs operating in these SUPER-SIZE money-making MEDICAL COMPLEXES are taught to operate mostly off their Rx pads (treating symptoms, rather than finding and curing the causes…or challenging those other ‘players’ to change their ways). So, they have to leave those complexes in order to follow their originsl purpose for being a doc in the first place. Let’s face it…the system itself is ‘SICK’… it’s basically ‘BROKEN’! That’s my ‘2-bits’…or maybe a little more!
We all know that glyphosate is unsafe! Responsibly remove it from the market. Thank you.
Time to ban glyphosate! Other coubtries have. Why is the U.S. still allowing it to be accessed?
I too, living on a farm, am surrounded by fields which the planting farmers insist on using GMO seed and glyphosate herbicides. I too, have non-hodgkins lymphoma.
It’s time to ban it!
Ungag doctors so that they can share with patients the benefits of supplements and natural treatments for COVID.
We should use what is given for free to reach the next level of the Kardashev scale!
I agree with all of the comments here. The priorities in our country are certainly out of balance. It is really up to each individual to educate themselves on health issues and natural alternatives to treat and regulate their own health. Get rid of harmful pesticides and glyphosate now.
