The glyphosate toxicity studies you’re not allowed to see

Pesticide regulators are refusing to release to the public the key industry studies on glyphosate that underpin regulatory authorizations and safety limits set for the herbicide, writes Claire Robinson.

ON OPPOSITE SIDES of the globe, pesticide regulators are refusing to release to the public the key industry studies on glyphosate that underpin regulatory authorizations and safety limits set for the herbicide.

Earlier this year a group of Chinese food safety volunteers submitted a request to China’s Ministry of Agriculture to disclose the study that justified issuing the safety certificate for the import into China of Monsanto’s glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup. The Ministry replied that Roundup was registered in China in 1988 based on a toxicology test report issued by a testing company called Younger Laboratories in St Louis, Missouri. The test was an acute exposure toxicity test (such tests last a maximum of a few days), with Roundup being given to rats by mouth and applied to the skin of rabbits. It claimed to find no effect on the eyes or skin, and no allergy.

The volunteers asked the Ministry to release the study, and the Ministry in turn asked Monsanto. Monsanto replied that the study constituted its own commercial secret, adding that the company had never disclosed the study anywhere in the world and did not agree to disclose it now. The volunteers are appealing against the decision.

The American people have been eating foods which are tainted with Glyphosate for years, everyone assumes it's safe. Accepts the words of a lyng company like Monsanto, now their saying it's a trade secret and cannot release to the public.

The real trade secret, is how many Americans have died from Glyphosate poisoning?

Looks like an opportunity for a chip-in start up organization

to independently test all Monsanto products. UL is corrupt Good Housekeeping is corrupt...even the BBB issues A+ ratings to fraudulent companies as long as they "address" submitted concerns of reporting consumers...it doesn't matter that the consumers complaints aren't resolved...just that someone "tried" to contact and address them...

(We won't even mention NIST/FDA/NIH...etc....etc....etc)

Whadda f&^%ed up world.

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

It can't be good...

It can't be good, why would they fight so hard to hide it. This only means we need to get that info. Kinda like agent orange from the same company, the truth only came out after so many soldiers died. They consider it the cost of doing business.

Makes me wish I was a lawyer

Makes me wish I was a lawyer with unlimited funds.

I'd guess that anyone involved in that study is silenced

by a gag order...

To protect trade secrets, ya know.

This is full on crimes against God and Nature.

Prior to the introduction of the GMO crap, we had numerous bee trees around our area.
Hives survived as wild for years on years. Two years ago, I discovered a bee tree that was doing well but it was dead the following Spring. Our area is soaked in GMO crops/ seed corn. We have had several deer mysteriously die off by the hundreds around the State. Mostly found right next to a water source (creek/ stream) just like a D-CON poisoned rat. They drink water and die. Of course the DNR comes up with a cover story. I think it is the GMO myself.

Glyphosate + clothianidin

Her in S.W. Minnesota, the land of GMO, the deer population is really dropping, and hunters are finding dead phesants as well. My 300 beehives ae all dead from GMO poisons, only have 2 left.

Glyphosate has been around for a long time, it is now in all our soil and waterways. Clothianidin is the real threat to the Honeybees, it is a nerve agent. The EPA knew it was going to kill honeybees in massive numbers but approved it anyways. 108 page internal EPA memo, smoking gun: http://www.panna.org/sites/default/files/Memo_Nov2010_Clothi...

Here scientist are worried that clothianidin is causing bain damage to the unborn and children under six: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjourna...

Here is a good aticle wrote by another beekeeper, he shows we are in serious touble of losing all our honeybees: http://bcba2.bouldercountybeekeepers.org/wp-content/uploads/...

There are a few univesities breaking with Monsatan, finally telling the tuth! here is Penn state: http://ento.psu.edu/publications/are-neonicotinoids-killing-...

Another is purdue university, They wouldn't say a word until they lost bees at planting time: http://www.soils.wisc.edu/extension/wcmc/2012/ppt/Krupke_2.pdf

Finally here is a independent scientist in Gemany showing a positive link between CCD and Clothianidin: http://youtu.be/eV30vODTkDw?t=24m

The youtube clip starts at 24 min, the earlier was all about Varroa mites. This field study is very interesting and a must see, I really liked it.

My friend, I’m truly sad

My friend, I’m truly sad about your bee hives. That makes me sick to see all of the species decline due to the Chemical contamination of the land, water and sky. We lost our pheasant and quail back in the early 70’s
Before the contamination, you would see pheasant in numbers of 1-20 birds in a covey fly up and scare the hell out ya if you weren’t ready for it. Same with the quail. Today, if you see a pheasant that is very rare. We had a lot of bats as well. Today they are few in numbers.
This is Southern Michigan.
