More than just a weed killerBarbara H. Peterson

Much hype has been generated linking the Zika virus carried by mosquitoes to an outbreak of microcephaly, a form of brain damage, in Brazil. Radical solutions have been proposed such as releasing genetically engineered mosquitoes to quell the threat and reduce mosquito populations. But could all of this simply be a misdirection so that the pesticide industry can continue to get away with selling highly dangerous pesticides such as Glyphosate with no repercussions for the consequences as well as an excuse to further vaccine industry profits and extend the genetic engineering of all life forms as a “cure” for what ails us?

In a groundbreaking new paper put out by Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff, Glyphosate is linked to exactly what the Zika virus has been targeted for, although relatively few cases of microcephaly have actually been linked to the virus.


Glyphosate can penetrate past the placenta. Alarming increases in birth defects such as microcephaly, anencephaly, cleft palates and other facial defects have been found in regions of South America and Paraguay where glyphosate is used extensively on core crops. The US Centers for Disease Control have reported on an excessive number of anencephaly births in Yakima (Washington), at four times the national average rate. This increase coincided with a large increase in the use of glyphosate to control waterway weeds. A recent study by Roy et al. on zebrafish embryos revealed that glyphosate causes microcephaly in zebrafish, and that the forebrain and midbrain are affected (but the hindbrain was spared). A US-based study found that the cerebellum is frequently disproportionately large in human microcephaly, particularly in the more severe cases, reflecting a larger effect on the forebrain compared to the hindbrain.

Farm Wars addressed the anencephaly and Glyphosate usage connection in an article titled “Glyphosate, Brain Damaged Babies, and Yakima Valley – A River Runs Through It:”

Three Washington counties – Yakima, Benton, and Franklin – experienced an unusually high number of birth defects at around the same time as Glyphosate was being used extensively for several years to eradicate noxious weeds on land and in the water. That birth defect is called anencephaly.

And more recently, microcephaly, another result of Glyphosate usage, has arisen in Brazil. In an article titled “Why Brazil has a big appetite for risky pesticides,“ Reuters reports that:

LIMOEIRO DO NORTE, Brazil – The farmers of Brazil have become the world’s top exporters of sugar, orange juice, coffee, beef, poultry and soybeans. They’ve also earned a more dubious distinction: In 2012, Brazil passed the United States as the largest buyer of pesticides.

Brazil is “the largest country in South America, encompassing around half of the continent’s land area and population.” Coincidence that microcephaly, caused by Glyphosate, the most used pesticide in the world, just happens to be on the rise in the largest country in South America, which has bypassed the U.S. as the largest buyer of pesticides?

Genetically engineered herbicide-tolerant crops now account for about 56 % of global glyphosate use. In the U.S., no pesticide has come remotely close to such intensive and widespread use. This is likely the case globally, but published global pesticide use data are sparse. Glyphosate will likely remain the most widely applied pesticide worldwide for years to come, and interest will grow in quantifying ecological and human health impacts. Accurate, accessible time-series data on glyphosate use will accelerate research progress

Misdirection, outright falsification, scientific fraud, and government collusion all come to mind when we look at the actual facts surrounding the massive fraud that has been perpetrated on the world’s population by the pesticide industry. Look! It’s a mosquito! It carries a virus! That’s why babies have birth defects! We must create a vaccine to cure this horrible plague! Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the real culprits continue churning out the stuff that is really causing the problem while getting rich off of the carcasses of their victims.

Read the full report by Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff and discover exactly what other life-altering, debilitating diseases that usage of the world’s most popular pesticide, Glyphosate, is correlated with including, but not limited to:

Obesity, diabetes, end stage renal disease, renal failure, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, intestinal infection, inflammatory bowel disease, stroke, leukemia, thyroid cancer, liver cancer, bladder cancer, pancreatic cancer and kidney cancer… a large number of disorders of the newborn that are increasing in step with glyphosate usage… include congenital heart disease, skin disorders, genitourinary disorders, blood disorders, metabolic disorders and lung conditions.

    So Barb, how do we get past the choir? I have this vision of you and I, Nancy and Judy, Anthony and Steph will tip the world upside down. I’ll figure it out, and when I do you and Claire will be the first to know!

  2. George H says:

    Right off the bat, let’s dispense with the Monsanto vetted hoax, that zika virus causes microcephaly NEVER HAPPENED. It’s the BIG LIE perpetrated by the WORLD’S EVILEST CORPORATION Monsanto. There’s no connection whatsoever between zika virus and microcephaly. Brazil is now the world’s largest user of glyphosate, and as multiple studies have shown GLYPHOSATE CAUSES MICROCEPHALY (among a whole host of other diseases including cancer) and Brazil, the 8th largest economy in the world, had the audacity to join the BRICS nations, which put it on a direct collision course with the US HEGEMON and the petro dollar. So Brazil is now feeling the full wrath of the US, with the neoliberal soft coup of ousting the democratically elected President Dilma Rousseff, thereby threatening Brazil’s young democracy and it’s hopes for a more egalitarian future, and instituting the deadly consequences of a massively GLYPHOSATE POISONED ECOSYSTEM. So what’s a little uptick in birth defects among friends, so long as the 1% continue to pull the strings, and global corporations continue to poison the planet and corrupt all in their path on the way to a world corporatocracy. Glyphosate and GMOs are the One Two punch designed to take out humanity (the Great Culling) and when you throw in Toxic Vaccines, well HELLS BELLS, you’ve got a playbook APPROVED BY SATAN HIMSELF :-(

    Great article as always. This is what the mainstream media should be reporting on, but those of us reading sites such as this know the agenda and know why they don’t.

    Abe-Thank you for your comment. Outstanding, concise and meaningful. I pray a lot of people read your comment as well as Barbara’s important article(s).

  4. Irene says:

    You have it wrapped up Abe and Barb, so why can’t we stop this crazy cabal from carrying out it’s diabolical plan to kill thousands of people and poison the worlds rain forest and Amazon River.
    This octopus seems to be flowing into every facet of our environment and blaming us for the damage it causes. Class action law suit to close down every industry that uses government to keep down it’s competitors. Money out of politics and independent science funding , testing and regulation of all industries.
    Uhh, I feel dizzy..

  5. Abe says:

    So they finally got it out! Good for them. This should be there most damning paper. A month or so ago Anthony was telling me a little about it, and the Zika virus. “The CDC will have some splaining to do”.

    When the presstitutes first started squawking about microcephaly, I found comments I had made well over a year ago, and possibly two.

    As usual, the bought and paid for in the government never does the obvious, like clean up the water, hell NO! More chemicals, usually in the form of a vaccine is always the answer.

    So this isn’t really new and breaking news, So why Brazil, and why now?

    When I did my header into the bottomless rabbit hole it wasn’t anything discussed on this forum of Barbs.

    From Sept. 08 – Jan. 09, I lost 45% of my retirement, so I started studying this so called housing bubble (derivative crises), which was never really dealt with. We will soon find out why!

    All problematic roads lead to the Fed, and Wall Street!!

    So why now Brazil?
    Economic terrorism, plain and simple. If you already now about BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) Then you know. It was originally pimped as a 3rd world development bank, but the reality is it was put into place to kill the petro dollar. To buy oil from OPEC you needed petro dollars, which is a cleaver name for US Treasuries, which is a cleaverer name for US Debt. Everyone is dumping there Treasuries at a trillion a month since last fall, and joining BRICS. Our real debt is close to, or over a quadrillion dollars. The Fed and Wall Street are unhappy with the BRICS countries.

    Every four years the best athletes from around the world gather at a predetermined city for the winter and summer olympic games. Beings Brazil is on the edge of economic collapse, this would be quite a boost to the economy for them. The Fed and the PTB, aren’t happy with Brazil et el, so abracadabra we now have the Zika virus. With all the hype thanks to the presstitutes, not only the best athletes, but loads of spectators will be absent, making it a big flop. Now I’ve heard Zika in now an STD!!!! If you believe any of this Zika hype, I’ve got some ocean front property for sale in Rock County Minnesota.

    It’s all a Rich Mans Trick!
    Brazil = Zika outbreak
    Russia = Ukraine and nuclear war
    India = Bill Gates to the recue
    China = nuclear war over the Spratley Islands
    South Africa = covert attacks, if you know how GWEN towers are
    weaponized, you already know.

    At the 55 minute mark, Lauren Moret talks about the Frequency Weapons used to kill in Rwanda and how they plan to use this in the US next!

    Leuren Moret is a former scientific laboratory employee known for her study of the adverse health and environmental effects of depleted uranium. Moret worked for two periods at two U.S. nuclear weapons laboratories, including Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. She has claimed the status of a whistleblower in connection with her work at Lawrence Livermore. Moret earned her Bachelor of Science in Geology at University of California, Davis in 1968, and her Master of Arts in Near Eastern Studies from University of California, Berkeley in 1978. After working 5 years at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and two years at the Livermore nuclear weapons lab, she left Livermore and now studies and publicizes the health effects of radiation exposure. She has worked extensively on the impact of radiation on public health from nuclear power plants and atmospheric testing and how radiation moves through the environment. Moret is a critic of the use of depleted uranium. She contributed to the United Nations subcommission investigating depleted uranium. She researched the environmental and public health effects of low level radiation from atmospheric testing fallout, nuclear power plants, and depleted uranium weaponry. Together with Dr. Hari Sharma and others, she studied high levels of depleted uranium measured in the tissue samples of 70 residents of Basra, Iraq, who died after the Gulf War from internal exposure to depleted uranium. Ms. Moret has detailed her research on the issue of depleted uranium particle size formed under high temperature conditions on the battlefield. The production of these particles in very high concentrations and numbers results in the permanent suspension of depleted uranium particulate matter in the atmosphere. These factors are the major contributors to adverse health effects caused by DU exposure.
