Glyphosate implicated in a plethora of diseases
Glyphosate is implicated in a plethora of diseases, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Celiac disease patients are at higher risk for it, along with miscarriages, birth defects, and infertility— which all have been implicated in glyphosate exposure. Several studies support these findings.
Many say there are no adverse health effects from Roundup. There are no long term studies done to show this evidence. Should we then blindly believe Monsanto is honest and there is no deception on their part in the name of profits? Here is some documented evidence that there are severe adverse events following Roundup exposure. -(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17185266?report=abstract)
This study showed a history of measles and allergy desensitization treatments lowered the risk of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma but also concluded it was in fact, associated with specific pesticides. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11700263?dopt=Abstract)
289.3 million dollars awarded to Mr. Johnson vs. Monsanto
The money was awarded to Mr.Johnson when a jury ruled that glyphosate was the cause of his terminal cancer (non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma). You can see the Monsanto fraud clearly in the trial evidence.
A San Francisco jury was presented evidence in this case and the following information screams of deception, lies and flat out corruption on the part of Monsanto. Here is a list that would be of extreme concern to anyone looking at the evidence, and it seems the jurors took very seriously.
- Dr. James Parry, who was under contract with Monsanto, found evidence of carcinogenicity of glyphosate. He believed it was capable of causing cancer and that glyphosate was clastogenic credible. He wrote: “My overall view is that if the reported genotoxicity of glyphosate and glyphosate formulations can be shown to be due to the production of oxidative damage, then a case could be made that any genetic damage would be thresholded…it may be necessary to consider the possibility of susceptible groups within the human population.”¹
- Monsanto toxicologist Donna Farmer wrote in an email which was presented as evidence: “You cannot say that Roundup is not a carcinogen…”²
- An email presented to the jury Dr. Heydens explicitly identifies one of the goals as “Publication on Animal Data Cited by IARC…Manuscript to be initiated by Mon as ghostwriters”. This one is a mind-blowing exposure of evidence where he also refers to the main publication showing that glyphosate poses no health risk at all, saying they had used ghostwriters. That is where Monsanto writes the studies and uses outside scientists to put their names on it. “An option would be to add Greim and Kier or Kirkland to have their names on the publication, but we would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing, and they would just edit & sign their names, so to speak. Recall that is how we handled Williams Kroes & Munro, 2000.”³
- An email by Michael Cunningham, who was work for Monsanto to several other colleagues, quoted Dr. Ruth Shearer from 1984: “The problem with glyphosate… is that it combines readily with nitrites, found in normal human saliva, to form an N-nitroso compound called Nnitrosoglyphosate. Although that particular compound has not been tested as a cancer-causing agent, over 75% of all other N-nitroso compounds tested have been shown to cause cancer by way of tumour formation.”

The Hidden Truth: Pesticides Also Contain Toxic Adjuvants
Here is how they get away with the poisoning of the population and the cover-up of the toxicity of pesticides. Pesticides contain ingredients that companies like Monsanto are not required to disclose anywhere. They are labeled as inert ingredients.
Although inert ingredients are in the products and can be biologically or chemically active, they are not required to disclose them, and they do not test them for safety in combination with Glyphosate or any other product or ingredient. We consider this hidden toxicity. They can label them inert ingredients based upon their function.
The toxic ingredients are usually not identified on product labels and can also be “confidential” business information—Hence the Roudup cover-up.
From the Article:
Inert ingredients can increase the ability of pesticide formulations to affect significant toxicologic end points, including developmental neurotoxicity, genotoxicity, and disruption of hormone function. They can also increase exposure by increasing dermal absorption, decreasing the efficacy of protective clothing, and increasing environmental mobility and persistence. Inert ingredients can increase the phytotoxicity of pesticide formulations as well as the toxicity to fish, amphibians, and microorganisms.
From the article:
Fungicides were the most toxic from concentrations 300-600 times lower than agricultural dilutions, followed by herbicides and then insecticides, with very similar profiles in all cell types. Despite its relatively benign reputation, Roundup was among the most toxic herbicides and insecticides tested. Most importantly, eight formulations out of nine were up to one thousand times more toxic than their active principles.
Chronic tests on pesticides may not reflect relevant environmental exposures if only one ingredient of these mixtures is tested alone.
Pesticides always have a mixture of adjuvants in them. These adjuvants are very often kept confidential. They are called inerts by the manufacturing companies. These adjuvants are generally tested alone and not in conjunction with the other ingredients. These adjuvants are shown to be toxic. So when glyphosate, an active ingredient in the pesticide is tested, they are not testing it in combination with the even more poisonous adjuvants which are considered inert duluents—one way to cover-up actual toxicity.
The guidelines for exposure are set for glyphosate and do not take into consideration the toxicity of the adjuvants hidden in every pesticide product. Therefore; the guidelines should be thrown out the window.
This study explored the potential active principles for toxicity on human cells for nine glyphosate-based formulations. The polyoxyethylene amine (POEA), is a component of Roundup. -(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23000283/)
Results from the article:
Among them, POE-15 clearly appears to be the most toxic principle against human cells, even if others are not excluded. It begins to be active with negative dose-dependent effects on cellular respiration and membrane integrity between 1 and 3ppm, at environmental/occupational doses. We demonstrate in addition that POE-15 induces necrosis when its first micellization process occurs, by contrast to glyphosate which is known to promote endocrine disrupting effects after entering cells.
Since pesticides are always used with adjuvants that could change their toxicity, the necessity to assess their whole formulations as mixtures becomes obvious.
Another study conducted on rats showed that POEA and preparations that contained POEA were more toxic than glyphosate. Glyphosate and it’s POEA component are ingredients of Roundup.
