 @Restorium2 is the AUTHORITY around these parts as to what the FDA says .

 

I would take what @Restorium2 says with a POUND of salt because he says GLYPHOSATE is safe for human consumption . . . . .

Glyphosate is present in a lot of what we eat and drink, unfortunately. Levels in the vaccines are likely lower than in the pork at your local grocery store. As it comes from the animals( that the geletain in the vaccine process comes from) eating gmo grain. Unfortunately Round up is widely sprayed and has polluted much of our food.

FDA finds glyphosate in food samples in its first-ever test for the herbicide

By Kaolin Sewell/The Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting October 9, 2018

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has found the herbicide glyphosate in more than 40 percent of samples in its first-ever test of the chemical.

On October 1,  the FDA released results from its Fiscal Year 2016 Pesticide Residue Monitoring Program analyzed between October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016.

The program analyzes levels of pesticide residues found in the U.S. food supply. Included in the program’s results is a new assignment conducted to specifically test two pesticides, glyphosate and glufosinate.

Glyphosate and glufosinate are known as “broad spectrum herbicides” used for killing weeds as well as other agricultural uses.

Glyphosate is also the key ingredient in Roundup, a pesticide made by the agribusiness company Monsanto. Now owned by Bayer, Monsanto was ordered in August to pay nearly $290 million in a civil lawsuit to a man who alleged his cancer was caused by his use of Roundup. Bayer has since sought to turnover the verdict as thousands more similar cases have been filed.

In the FDA analysis of pesticide residue in food samples, all results show levels are of no concern to public health, according to the report.

“Most FDA pesticide-testing protocols use multi-residue methods (MRMs). Due to the chemical nature of glyphosate, (previous) FDA’s methods did not work,” the FDA stated in the report.

According to a recent Constituent Update from the FDA, the report concludes overall levels of residues fall below the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) set tolerances.

The FDA conducted the new assessment using the Selective Residue Method. This method is the FDA’s procedure designed to analyze either selected pesticide chemicals or a single pesticide chemical in a sample.

To test for glyphosate and glufosinate, samples were taken from corn, soybeans, milk and eggs. A total of 760 samples were tested for the two pesticides.

In the milk and eggs samples, results presented no levels of glyphosate or glufosinate residues. In the corn and soybean samples, about 47 percent of the samples presented detectable levels of residues but fell below EPA tolerance levels.

The EPA’s established tolerance for safe use of the herbicide glyphosate is 0.1 to 310 parts per million.

According to the FDA, glyphosate blocks an enzyme that is vital to a plant growth. Similarly,  glufosinate is a herbicide commonly used as an alternative to glyphosate. When applied, this pesticide only effects the part of the plant in contact with the substance.

Routine procedures tested for additional pesticides. After examining 7,413 samples taken from 711 pesticides and chemicals, results show pesticide levels are well below the established safety standards, in agreement with last year’s report.

Pesticides are known to combat pests affecting agricultural crops. Occasionally, these substances remain in or on foods.

“The FDA takes very seriously the responsibility it shares with the EPA and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to keep foods free of unsafe levels of pesticide chemical residues,” states the Constituent Update.

The FDA plans to include results for glyphosate testing in future reports.

EPA Finds Glyphosate Is Likely to Injure or Kill 93% of Endangered Species

WASHINGTON— The Environmental Protection Agency released a draft biological evaluation today finding that glyphosate is likely to injure or kill 93% of the plants and animals protected under the Endangered Species Act.

The long-anticipated draft biological evaluation released by the agency’s pesticide office found that 1,676 endangered species are likely to be harmed by glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup and the world’s most-used pesticide.

The draft biological opinion also found that glyphosate adversely modifies critical habitat for 759 endangered species, or 96% of all species for which critical habitat has been designated.

“The hideous impacts of glyphosate on the nation’s most endangered species are impossible to ignore now,” said Lori Ann Burd, environmental health director at the Center for Biological Diversity. “Glyphosate use is so widespread that even the EPA’s notoriously industry-friendly pesticide office had to conclude that there are hardly any endangered species that can manage to evade its toxic impacts.”

Hundreds of millions of pounds of glyphosate are used each year in the United States, mostly in agriculture but also on lawns, gardens, landscaping, roadsides, schoolyards, national forests, rangelands, power lines and more.

According to the EPA, 280 million pounds of glyphosate are used just in agriculture, and glyphosate is sprayed on 298 million acres of crop land each year. Eighty-four percent of glyphosate pounds applied in agriculture are applied to soy, corn and cotton, commodity crops that are genetically engineered to tolerate being drenched with quantities of glyphosate that would normally kill a plant.

Glyphosate is also widely used in fruit and vegetable production.

“As we prepare to feast on our favorite Thanksgiving dishes, the ugly truth of how harmful industrial-scale agriculture has become in the U.S. has never been so apparent,” said Burd. “If we want to stop the extinction of amazing creatures like monarch butterflies, we need the EPA to take action to stop the out-of-control spraying of deadly poisons.”

The EPA has, for decades, steadfastly refused to comply with its obligation under the Endangered Species Act to assess the harms of pesticides to protected plants and animals. But it was finally forced to do this evaluation under the terms of a 2016 legal agreement with the Center.

Emails obtained in litigation brought against Monsanto/Bayer by cancer victims and their families have uncovered a disturbingly cozy relationship between the agency and the company on matters involving the glyphosate risk assessment.

In one example, when the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced it would be reviewing glyphosate’s safety, an EPA official assured Monsanto he would work to thwart the review, saying, “If I can kill this, I should get a medal.” The Health and Human Services review was delayed for three years.

Monsanto/Bayer has also enjoyed broad support from the Trump White House. A domestic policy advisor in the Trump administration stated, “We have Monsanto’s back on pesticides regulation.”

Earlier this year, relying on confidential industry research, the EPA reapproved glyphosate. The EPA’s assessment contradicts a 2015 World Health Organization analysis of published research that determined glyphosate is a probable carcinogen.

President-elect Joe Biden has already tapped Michael McCabe, a former consultant to chemical giant DuPont, to join his Environmental Protection Agency transition board, drawing broad outrage, including from Erin Brockovich.

Covid-19 and Glyphosate. How are they connected?

  • Pin to Pinterest board

For this week’s article, I am going to take a slight break from providing Covid-19 information.  I say slight because I will be able to circle around and link this week’s topic back to covid-19 risk factors.  One of the major chemical contaminants that has a huge, but silent impact on our health is a chemical called glyphosate.  Glyphosate is the active ingredient in weed killers, like the brand Round-up.  I have written in the past about the health dangers of this chemical and even about the lawsuits against its manufacturer, Monsanto. In 2018, Monsanto was court ordered to pay $250 million in punitive damages and $39.2 million in compensatory damages for failing to warn consumers that exposure to Roundup weed killer causes cancer. And last year, the Bayer corporation which bought Monsanto, agreed to pay a 10 billion dollar settlement from a class action suit for Monsanto failing to put a cancer warning label on their product.

 

In a soon to be released new book titled, “Toxic Legacy: How the Weedkiller Glyphosate is Destroying Our Health and the Environment,” Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., a senior research scientist at MIT, reviews the health impacts of glyphosate.  I was able to read her latest interview and I came away with valuable insights.

 

It is very difficult to know about a topic that most people never even hear about.  Glyphosate is one of those topics.  When I drive my car through town and I see neighbors spraying round-up on their curbs, side walks and gardens it is upsetting to me knowing that they are unknowingly handling a harmful chemical.  When I walk into a hardware store or home store like Home Depot and the aisle endcap is devoted to this dangerous weedkiller (on sale no less), it is a very alarming situation.

 

The main problem is that glyphosate (even according to Monsanto’s research in the 1980’s) accumulates in the body’s tissues.  Once in the tissues, the glyphosate substitutes itself for the amino acid glycine when constructing proteins in the body, disrupting the protein manufacturing process that depends on the essential amino acid glycine.  This is where the health problems come from.  You have heard about the good bacteria in our digestive systems call probiotics. Probiotics build up our gut microbe levels of helpful, healthy bacteria. Glyphosate prevents this from happening causing our health to suffer in many ways.

 

Here is where the chemistry gets a little tricky.  We have minerals in our body, like iron that our essential for health.  Too little and we can be unhealthy, but too much is toxic and cause illness.  There is another chemical called deuterium, which is a heavy hydrogen molecule and is essential to the body in small amounts.  We have cells in our body whose job is remove the excess deuterium. Glyphosate damaged cells prevent this important process from occurring and the result is chronic disease.  Recent research papers show that glyphosate is an endocrine (hormonal) system disrupter and is linked to breast cancer, reproductive issues, thyroid problems and obesity.  One of the most important revelations is that glyphosate disrupts your body’s defensive immune system. 

 

This is where I circle back around to Covid-19.  According to Dr. Seneff, your immune system cells are impaired by glyphosate.  The older you are, the more you have been exposed to glyphosate for decades causing your immune cells to malfunction.  But wait, you are probably saying to yourself, “ I never or hardly ever use weedkilling glyphosate, how can it build-up in my body?”  The scary answer is that you do not ever have to use weedkiller to have glyphosate in your body.  You eat it constantly!! Yes, eat it.  Glyphosate is an environmental toxin, farmers use it on our grains and vegetable plants as a very simple to use, cost effective weedkiller.  Even scarier, is that Monsanto has invented Round-up ready plant seeds for farmers.  The seeds have glyphosate genetically modified into the seeds cell structure.  These seeds are sold to farmers to plant the soycorncanolaalfalfa, cotton, and sorghum crops (with wheat under development). Roundup Ready crop seeds have also been called and vilified as  "terminator seeds." This is because the crops produced from Roundup Ready seeds are sterile, meaning the seeds from the crops can never be used again to plant more crops, they would have to be purchased again for replanting.

 

Now that you have learned how glyphosate accumulates in the body, scientists are coming to conclusions about how glyphosate interacts with the Covid-19 virus or in fact any virus.  When a virus enters our body, due to glyphosate accumulation, the energy producing cells called mitochondria cannot make their main energy ingredient called ATP.  ATP helps clear the virus out of our cells. Glyphosate interferes with our body’s cells ATP energy process.  If the cells cannot make ATP, the immune system has a hard time doing its job of clearing out the virus.  Thus people who have high levels of glyphosate in their body will have a difficult time recovering from viruses like Covid-19.

 

What do we do to avoid this dangerous problem?  First off, boycott all weed killing products.  If you think you are only killing the weeds around your curb and sidewalk, you are very wrong.  The glyphosate ends up in our ground water supply as it is absorbed into the ground and it ends up in our bay, lakes, rivers and streams from the street and sewer run-off.  Not only does the chemical end up in our drinking water but it also ends up in the fish and animals like crabs, shrimp and lobster that we eat. Secondly, eat only certified organic made foods so that you know the grains and vegetables do not have glyphosate.  Include in your diet foods that have probiotics, like sauerkraut and apple cider vinegar (with mother in it) to help repair the gut microbes.  If you are concerned about glyphosate already in your body, you can take supplemental powdered glycine 5-10 grams a day.  Glycine will push glyphosate out of the cells.  I have heard it has a sweet taste, so you can use it as a sweetener.

 

 

Covid-19 Vaccination information:  As part of informed consent for your personal information here is the latest reported events from the CDC vaccine adverse reaction reporting system (via their website) to help you make your own health care decision concerning the vaccination.
 
As of 2/13/21, 52 million people have been given at least one dose of the vaccine.  Adverse reactions total over 12,639 (Of the 12,639 reported events, common reactions such as arm soreness and swelling, fatigue, fever, body aches and headache are included. Also included are the more severe reactions such as anaphylaxis).  The most common reactions are chills (over 1700 cases), headache (2600 cases), shortness of breath (943 cases), nausea (over 1600 cases).  Also, 221 people contracted the covid-19 virus after receiving the vaccine.  In addition, it has also been reported on the CDC web page that over 490 people have died after receiving the vaccine. 

 

Prenatal Pregnancy Chiropractic care:  One of the most common prenatal questions I receive is “Why does the baby wake me up at night?”  During pregnancy, on average it seems the most uncomfortable time for the mother is at night.  One of the reasons is that during the waking hours, the walking and moving around of the pregnant mother soothes the unborn baby and with all of that motion, the baby sleeps.  At night, during pregnancy, the baby wakes up.  And keeps the mother up!  Prenatal and pregnancy care for the chiropractor is mothercentric.  Meaning, its all about helping the pregnant mother to be comfortable during the 9 months of pregnancy.  Improving nerve flow and balancing spinal / pelvic musculature are important aspects of prenatal chiropractic care.

What do we do to avoid this dangerous problem?  First off, boycott all weed killing products.  If you think you are only killing the weeds around your curb and sidewalk, you are very wrong.  The glyphosate ends up in our ground water supply as it is absorbed into the ground and it ends up in our bay, lakes, rivers and streams from the street and sewer run-off.  Not only does the chemical end up in our drinking water but it also ends up in the fish and animals like crabs, shrimp and lobster that we eat. Secondly, eat only certified organic made foods so that you know the grains and vegetables do not have glyphosate.  Include in your diet foods that have probiotics, like sauerkraut and apple cider vinegar (with mother in it) to help repair the gut microbes.  If you are concerned about glyphosate already in your body, you can take supplemental powdered glycine 5-10 grams a day.  Glycine will push glyphosate out of the cells.  I have heard it has a sweet taste, so you can use it as a sweetener.

 

 

Covid-19 Vaccination information:  As part of informed consent for your personal information here is the latest reported events from the CDC vaccine adverse reaction reporting system (via their website) to help you make your own health care decision concerning the vaccination.
 
As of 2/13/21, 52 million people have been given at least one dose of the vaccine.  Adverse reactions total over 12,639 (Of the 12,639 reported events, common reactions such as arm soreness and swelling, fatigue, fever, body aches and headache are included. Also included are the more severe reactions such as anaphylaxis).  The most common reactions are chills (over 1700 cases), headache (2600 cases), shortness of breath (943 cases), nausea (over 1600 cases).  Also, 221 people contracted the covid-19 virus after receiving the vaccine.  In addition, it has also been reported on the CDC web page that over 490 people have died after receiving the vaccine. 

 

Prenatal Pregnancy Chiropractic care:  One of the most common prenatal questions I receive is “Why does the baby wake me up at night?”  During pregnancy, on average it seems the most uncomfortable time for the mother is at night.  One of the reasons is that during the waking hours, the walking and moving around of the pregnant mother soothes the unborn baby and with all of that motion, the baby sleeps.  At night, during pregnancy, the baby wakes up.  And keeps the mother up!  Prenatal and pregnancy care for the chiropractor is mothercentric.  Meaning, its all about helping the pregnant mother to be comfortable during the 9 months of pregnancy.  Improving nerve flow and balancing spinal / pelvic musculature are important aspects of prenatal chiropractic care.

Do you mean to say that the FDA is LYING when it says GLYPHOSATE is safe for human consumption ?

I recently had a conversation with someone that stated to me alcohol is no worse than cannabis. I was almost at a loss for words because this person is very intelligent and I just couldn't believe they said that.....WOW. What would have been your reply? 

Personal experience of being around both substances for close to 50 years.  I can have a good time on both or combination of both. But for My 2 cents worth alcohol can and does wreak people's lives whether its health jacked liver our enlarged heart diabetes to point of losing appendages . Then all the legal issues one can find themselves caught up in when indulging alcohol I've run the gambit on that and it effects my current lot in life alot and unfortunately always will. The only negative with marijuana is smoking in my opinion good thing we can eat and drink it too. But I've seen studies that say cigarette smokers have higher risk of cancer Verse cigarette smokers who also smoke pot. And lower cancer rates for pot smokers than people who do not smoke either go figure. Lol So to sum it up I'd say You take a group of hundred couples and all the alcohol You can drink alot more problems would occur verses same people just smoking pot.

Sometimes we find out that people aren't who we thought they were.

We are best at fooling ourselves.
