Articles, stories, essays, editorials, news and poems written by Anita Stewart and other female contributors as indicated. These stories are also found on other alternative media outlets all around the web. Interviews with women that are changing the world and challenging the rhetoric from the corporate media. Occasionally we do a live radio show.
When one does an internet search and goes back far enough, there are plenty of articles accusing Monsanto and it’s products — such as Round-up and Agent Orange, of causing all kinds of diseases, genetic mutations and deformities; to include Cancer and Diabetes, the latter on the Veterans Administration’s own website. Did you know Veterans, who were stationed in Vietnam do not even have to prove their illnesses have any connection to Agent Orange to get disability? It’s true, it is automatically presumed to be the cause.
Agent Orange — RoundUp — Monsanto. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, has been linked to Autism. Autism itself is on the rise, as are a host of other diseases. At the going rate, projections show half the children born by 2050 will have Autism.
What is even more frightening are the amounts of the product being used. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has estimated the United States’ agricultural use of Roundup in 2012 was more than 283 million pounds. This number is way up from 110 million pounds logged just 10 years before.
Discrediting And Science For Sale
Unless one has been living under a rock, this is all old news and the “GMO-deniers” continually say that some of these claims and reports are based on “junk” or “pseudo” science and there seems to be a concerted effort in media [both corporate and alternative] to discredit doctors that speak out against Monsanto; particularly female doctors. Is it the “good ‘ole boy” network at work?
Our medical system and our health itself has been hijacked. Corporations and money rule. Like everything else in the land of oligarchy and corporate rule, science with all of it’s facts, data, reports, peer reviewed papers and studies can be bought for a price.
One of the most untrue statements was that glyphosate was so safe for humans, it could be consumed just like lemonade.
A lobbyist for Monsanto, Dr. Patrick Moore (who Monsanto claims is not an official lobbyist or spokesperson for their company) found himself in a tight spot when stating during an interview for a French documentary that glyphosate was completely safe for humans and drinkable but refused to drink a glass of it when offered.
Dave Schubert, the head of the cellular neurobiology laboratory at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California, said:
“There are a number of independent, published manuscripts that clearly indicate that glyphosate … can promote cancer and tumor growth, it should be banned.“
Russia has banned genetically modified foods and Monsanto products and the company is regrouping after they sued and lost a lawsuit in a county in Hawaii that established a similar ban. Other countries have carried out restrictions and bans and many more are expected to follow suit.
On May 23rd, 2015, another global March Against Monsanto event is scheduled. Monsanto is killing us slowly. This is a real war. We cannot allow Monsanto to win as a global superpower.
