    HEARTBREAKING!

    Worst than the GMOs is the glyphosate use in roundup and other chemicals from other pesticides. The informations is being diluted, chopped up and fragmented in ways that it is difficult for the population to get a grip on things. Here's a recent article on the toxicity of Glyphosate. Not the conclusion of this experiment on animals.

    Abstract

    Previous studies demonstrate that glyphosate exposure is associated with oxidative damage and neurotoxicity. Therefore, the mechanism of glyphosate-induced neurotoxic effects needs to be determined. The aim of this study was to investigate whether Roundup(®) (a glyphosate-based herbicide) leads to neurotoxicity in hippocampus of immature rats following acute (30min) and chronic (pregnancy and lactation) pesticide exposure. Maternal exposure to pesticide was undertaken by treating dams orally with 1% Roundup(®) (0.38% glyphosate) during pregnancy and lactation (till 15-day-old). Hippocampal slices from 15 day old rats were acutely exposed to Roundup(®) (0.00005-0.1%) during 30min and experiments were carried out to determine whether glyphosate affects (45)Ca(2+) influx and cell viability. Moreover, we investigated the pesticide effects on oxidative stress parameters, (14)C-α-methyl-amino-isobutyric acid ((14)C-MeAIB) accumulation, as well as glutamate uptake, release and metabolism. Results showed that acute exposure to Roundup(®) (30min) increases (45)Ca(2+) influx by activating NMDA receptors and voltage-dependent Ca(2+) channels, leading to oxidative stress and neural cell death. The mechanisms underlying Roundup(®)-induced neurotoxicity also involve the activation of CaMKII and ERK. Moreover, acute exposure to Roundup(®) increased (3)H-glutamate released into the synaptic cleft, decreased GSH content and increased the lipoperoxidation, characterizing excitotoxicity and oxidative damage. We also observed that both acute and chronic exposure to Roundup(®) decreased (3)H-glutamate uptake and metabolism, while induced (45)Ca(2+) uptake and (14)C-MeAIB accumulation in immature rat hippocampus. Taken together, these results demonstrated that Roundup(®) might lead to excessive extracellular glutamate levels and consequently to glutamate excitotoxicity and oxidative stress in rat hippocampus.

    Hello! Do you have any news about the FDA testing of glyphosate levels in the american food supply? I was shocked that I could not find any news about it now, in August of 2016 when all the news stories that mentioned they would do testing were from February 2016. Are they delaying this because of the stoopid election? *sigh*

    Will the study Tropical Traditions conducted to evaluate glyphosate residue in non-GMO commercial crops and organic crops be published in a peer-reviewed journal? It sounds like a potentially compelling study, although it is hard to tell from the limited information provided here how the study was conducted. There are so many possible areas of contamination for sampling and analyzing low-levels of pesticides and other organics that it is crucial to understand/document the field and lab sampling protocols and quality assurance used for a study like this before evaluating the conclusions. I would be very interested in the study and results if/when it is published. Also, I have read anecdotal accounts of glyphosate dessication and just as many accounts by farmers that it does not occur, but I have not found any factual evidence to support it's prevalence (or not). Do you have any factual, data sources (non-anecdotal) on the prevalence of this practice?

    It seems quite simple to me. The myriad samples of "non-GMO" and "organic" from various farms and states tested positive for glyphosate. That's enough to scare me off. I think we ALL need to take up the study of organic farming and grow our own food -- local, seasonal, cooperative farms.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg folks! Consider: * The USDA's list of allowed chemicals on Organic products is long and full of synthetic chemicals. * The US operates on the 'it's safe until proven otherwise' principle, the opposite of the EU's precautionary principle. * Tens of thousands of industrial chemicals are in wide use, without any meaningful safety testing! How many of them are allowed on Organic foods?! * Chemical safety testing is based on the one substance alone in healthy individuals. No special populations. No combinations of any other chemicals. * Chemical safety standard levels are based on a linear dose-response assumption, which may not be the case, eg, hormone disruptors. * It's been widely reported that many scientific journal peer reviewed articles' results are not reproduceable, ie, false conclusions. * Who's go the $ to independently test all this outside the chemical manufacturers whose interest is hopelessly conflicted??? * There's strong evidence of widespread regulatory capture, by political appointment, budgetary control, personnel coercion, lobbying, makeup of Boards and Commissions, ad nauseam. * The public, at the levels needed to transform the food industry, remains blissfully ignorant. There's no mass media education outlets which support any of this. The internet is the only venue and it's making progress, but the progressive food industry ideas are barely represented in Congress, in treaties, in agencies, on Gov't Boards and Commissions, in laws & regulations. Until they are, the market is the only venue of change, which is growing but too slow. So there's lots of argument the regulatory system needs to be transcended with something better. Maybe by a certification and labeling NGO funded by sales of organic products???

    Ever since USDA has been involved in the organic rules and regulation business they have been diluting and lower organic standards to allow big companies access to the rapidly growing demand for organic food. One such move on the part of USDA was to allow the use of manure from CAFOs to be applied on certified organic land. This CAFO contains glyphosate, AMPA or aminomethylphosphonicacid (the first metabolite of glyphosate) and other chemical residues as well as antibiotic residue in the manure.
