Monsanto’s Roundup Herbicide—Featuring the Darth Vader Chemical

Published on May 10, 2013

It was “supposed” to be harmless to humans and animals—the perfect weed killer. Now a groundbreaking article just published in the journal Entropy points to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, and more specifically its active ingredient glyphosate, as devastating—possibly “the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies.”
That’s right. The herbicide sprayed on most of the world’s genetically engineered crops—and which gets soaked into the food portion—is now linked to “autism … gastrointestinal issues such as inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrhea, colitis and Crohn’s disease, obesity, cardiovascular disease, depression, cancer, cachexia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and ALS, among others.”
Enjoy this videotaped guided tour of Jeffrey Smith interviewing co-author Stephanie Seneff, PhD, a Senior Research Scientist at MIT.

    Reblogged this on euzicasa and commented:
    All pesticides have been mislabeled: they should all be called biocides!, because they all fight life. They cannot by innocuous like…let’s say water, or air: Got it?

  2. […] [Edit] Here’s an interview with Dr Seneff about her glyphosate research. I’m grateful to my fellow blogger bearspawprint for linking to this film, and others, about real or possible hazards to human health. […]

    • I suspect in vulnerable persons there may be epigenetic “switches” just waiting for an environmental influence to trigger a cascade of disease responses.— Glyphosate causing growth to death for plants can’t help but create faulty growth and nutrient absorption and use in any organism that consumes it one way or another. Dunno if it has been looked at, but the quickly mutating and measurable mitochondrial DNA might be a place to look for human adaption. Mitochondria having to do with cellular energy. Just some thoughts.— Do you feel OK, just now?—- Bear

        Interesting thought and it turns out that you’re right! At least, here’s evidence of glyphosate affecting rat mitochondria in cell culture http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16263381

        • Wish we could sit around a table with a cuppa and 4 or 5 ‘putters and some notebooks. Might be able to get somewhere. As it is ….. Here is another association: this #$^&&* works on the same principals as Agent Orange. So what is all the run off doing to algae and other aquatic plants and the critters that eat them, that we eat, too. Is that more in your field of expertise? What does SE Asia look like now? NW USA? The US Forest Service used dioxins to defoliate in the 1960 and 1970s. hard to isolate dioxin influences in US due to population growth and logging. Probably the same in Asia, or maybe there the overgrowth has taken over as the norm as weather and time dilute the concentrations. And the people and animals, how are they?

            A few v quick searches found me review articles about spraying Roundup to destroy opium and coca plantations, concluding that other organisms weren’t being harmed. If I get around to doing a proper lit search I’ll blog about it. But as you know, my to-blog list keeps getting longer! I’m glad to have found your blog which is interesting.

            It wasn’t, in fact. I goofled ‘mitochondria glyphosate’ then picked the first peer reviewed article that came up – the one with ncbi in its url. Looks like I learned a few skills during my 4 University degrees, eh? Now that I’ve mentioned that, I want to crow! Sam Mason BA Oxon, MSc, MSc, PhD.

        • Thank you for that link. You found it so fast! It does act basically as I was guessing. But I am so ignorant, and my vocabulary is so limited. Thank you for not condescending. Do you suppose that lab lost its funding? Or perhaps that particular project lost its grant? In 1968 I worked in the Dept of Molecular Biophysics as a lab assistant. Was interesting but tedious. Geophysics was more fun. Anyway, I traveled different paths and have lived several lifetimes of different lives and these other worlds have left me behind. I’ve been gifted this computer, which seems to have new glitches everyday, much like my body, otherwise I would be very close to completely isolated. I am so very glad that you have a background in bio-chemistry (you do don’t you?) and know enough to perhaps throw some significant darts at this monstrosity that is endangering the planet.

            To tell the truth, I’m no biochemist. That, immunology, pharmacology and bioinformatics are the fields of biology I just don’t ‘get’! I’ve no idea about geophysics either. Glad that some people do get them, though.

            I agree about the computer being a wonderful way to escape isolation.
