Landmark lawsuit claims Monsanto hid cancer danger of weedkiller for decades

(Note from Erin: I’m beyond frustrated that despite everything we know about the dangers of glyphosate, we still have to have these conversations. I cannot wait until the day that Big Ag/Pharma Monsanto is forced to stop selling Roundup (with the active ingredient glyphosate). But, until that happens, we will continue to report on the damage Monsanto does to people, animals, and the planet.) DeWayne Johnson, 46, is about to make history by becoming the “first person to take the global seed and chemical company to trial on allegations that it has spent decades hiding the cancer-causing dangers of its popular...

What about the French paradox?

Written By Michael Greger M.D. FACLM on May 22nd, 2018   The so-called French Paradox is a term coined back in the 1980s by three Frenchmen to explain a curious finding: If you chart death from heart attack versus the amount of saturated fat and cholesterol countries consume, there appears to be a straight line. The more animal foods populations eat, the higher their death rates appear to be. Conversely, maybe if we got meat, egg, and dairy intake low enough, we could bring coronary death rates down towards zero.

Researchers Warn: Common garden formula can kill your cells

By Dr. Mercola In recent years, concerns over the health effects of glyphosate — the active ingredient in Roundup and other weed killer formulations — has risen exponentially. Researchers have discovered it not only may be carcinogenic,  but may also affect your body’s ability to produce fully functioning proteins, inhibit the shikimate pathway (found in gut bacteria) and interfere with the function of cytochrome P450 enzymes (required for activation of vitamin D and the creation of nitric oxide and cholesterol sulfate). Glyphosate also chelates important minerals, disrupts sulfate synthesis and transport, interferes with the synthesis of aromatic amino acids and methionine, resulting in...

Not born with it

By Brian S. Hooker, Science Advisor, Focus for Health and Board Member, World Mercury Project Recently, the newest U.S. autism prevalence numbers were released by the CDC.  It was not good news. Among children born in 2004 and 2006, the prevalence of autism had increased from 1 in 68 to 1 in 59, respectively. Leading the nation in terms of autism prevalence was New Jersey with a rate of 1 in 35 children and 1 in 22 boys. In other words, nearly 5% of boys in New Jersey have autism spectrum disorder as defined by the new DSM V criteria. Of the children...
