A huge increase in the incidence and prevalence of chronic diseases has been reported in the United States (US) over the last 20 years. Similar increases have been seen globally.

The herbicide glyphosate was introduced in 1974 and its use is accelerating with the advent of herbicide-tolerant genetically engineered (GE) crops. Evidence is mounting that glyphosate interferes with many metabolic processes in plants and animals and glyphosate residues have been detected in both.

Glyphosate disrupts the endocrine system and the balance of gut bacteria, it damages DNA and is a driver of mutations that lead to cancer. In the present study, US government databases were searched for GE crop data, glyphosate application data and disease epidemiological data.

The significance and strength of the correlations show that the effects of glyphosate and GE crops on human health should be further investigated.

    I absolutely agree with you Wayne. We need a sea change.

    Excellent video and article on Glyphosate.
    A fantastic primer and education explaining ONE MAJOR facet of the worlds declining health. Not to minimize the importance and urgency of this information in any way, I wish to direct my comments a little further down the rabbit hole though, towards the BIG PICTURE. I, just like so many others do, subscribe to and receive a plethora of newsletters every day. Despite their many different informative topics,they all invariably, ALWAYS have one RESULTING common theme.
    The [EXTERMINATION of LIFE] whether slowly over time or quickly and suddenly. The preferred method seemingly being slowly, as to go undetected and remain under the radar as coincidental mystery. As Hitler was allegedly quoted: “Tell a big enough lie long enough and the people will eventually believe it”. On the flip side, tell a truth so big and overwhelming, and long enough, and the people refuse to believe it! They simply can’t get their head around such large shifts in changing their beliefs.
    Whether it’s sterilization and slow death by glyphosate, fluoride, mercury fillings, vaccinations, mineral and vitamin deficiencies, pharmaceuticals, radiation, chemicals, or be it fast, by war, the end GAME IS THE SAME.
    These are literally just different pages from the same book.
    We are slow to learn there is no here or over there. What seemingly happens over there eventually affects here. Our weather, by wind currents or by the condensation cycle which produces rain, ensures that the whole planet eat and drink from the same table. The pulse of life on this planet is measured by reproduction. You may flat-line this pulse by either eliminating those that reproduce, or their ability to do so.
    A REALIZATION that all these seemingly unrelated man made life killing coincidences are NOT UNRELATED COINCIDENCE AT ALL, would most certainly help heal this wounded planet from mankind’s selfishness and indifference toward one another.
    What happens over there today will happen here also, just maybe not until tomorrow.
    The new film “ORIGINS” is fantastic at explaining all this in a beautiful way, and has free worldwide screening from the 13-22nd of this month. Well worth the watch, I PROMISE.
