New Scientific Study: Monsanto's Roundup 1000x more toxic to humansSubmitted by beeman on Tue, 02/11/2014 - 15:12
A new study reveals Roundup used in it's current form is much more toxic to humans than once thought. When Roundup was approved it was only tested with the active ingredients (glyphosate), inert ingredients were not included. In fact this is how all pesticides and herbicides, and fungicides are tested. Roundup is deemed safe by the EPA up to 13 ppm, it used to be 6 ppm. But since Monsanto has changed it's inert ingredient the EPA had to raise the toxicity level to 13 ppm. The real toxicity level should be 3 ppb, this is a big difference.
See study here: http://www.hindawi.com/journals/bmri/aip/179691/
The Amount of Roundup a human should ingest in 1 day is just 3 parts/billion, and Glyphosate is 6 ppb. How much are we ingesting now in all the processed food if the GMO corn is known to contain 13 ppm or more?
Here in Minnesota I have suffered massive bee deaths, because of the farming practices. The seed dressing (imidacloprid) used on corn and soy beans are deadly to all life according to the EPA. Farmers are supposed to be wearing chemical suits when handling this seed, or at least long sleeve shirts. The study above now shows this pesticides is not only deadly to bees but is just as deadly to humans.
How many people unknowingly have died with all type of cancers and illnesses related to these farm chemicals. Everyone is still looking for deaths that have the GMO stamp on the forehead.
For you Californians that voted down Prop 37 will be glad to hear that fungicides are the most toxic of all. Guess what is sprayed liberally on the almond groves. Better start wearing gas masks when driving down the 99 and Interstate 5 corridors.
Consider our drinking water, the USGS says these farming chemicals will start to show up in to our water supply as soon as 10 years. In 50 years it will be in all drinking water.

If we changed our farming practices now we will still be dealing with the pollution for the next 100 years. If it takes 50 years to reach all drinking water it will take at least as long to clean up. What the hell are we doing to our children and grandchildren.
I see this is the number one threat to our human existence. Maybe Einstein will be correct after all. When we kill off the Honeybee the human population will follow, because of stupidity.
Monsanto truly deserves the nickname Monsatan!
