Monsanto Toxicologist Donna Farmer recently made the following statement regarding the toxicity of Glyphosate:

“I’ll give you an example of one of the studies,” she said during the debate, which was aired as part of The Doctors, an award-winning TV show. “They actually injected the Round-Up formulation into the abdomen of the animals and they did have an effect. But that’s not a relevant route of exposure for somebody who is going to be spraying that herbicide. So that’s what we look at and the regulatory agencies look at and, like the other bodies at the World Health Organization. IARC only looks and says, “If I inject it there’s a hazard.” So there’s different ways we look at the data.” (March Against Monsanto)

This is a very interesting statement. Let’s read it again: “IARC only looks and says, “If I inject it there’s a hazard.””

“If I inject it there’s a hazard.” Let that sink in. Then, let’s ask the question: Why does Glyphosate Patent US7771736 include injection as an acceptable means of administration? Read the rest of this entry »

Azure Standard

Dear Azure Customers. We’ve some extremely urgent news to share with you. All of Azure Standard’s Organic wheat, field peas, barley, Einkorn, and beef is grown by Azure Farm on 2,000 acres of pristine, organically certified land in Sherman County, Oregon. The county is considering imposing draconian, highly toxic weed management laws and may force us to have our 2,000 acre organic farm sprayed with Roundup and other toxic herbicides. You read that right: we’d be forced to have our organic farm sprayed with Roundup, and we would then be forced to foot the bill! We’ve just over 1 week to get as much support as possible. Please review the video at https://vimeo.com/216920516 or learn more at https://www.azurestandard.com/healthy-li…/…/azure-farm-moro/ and then take action today. Thank you for your support!

After reading the 2018 White House budget, I find that there are some key points in it that we should all be aware of:

Support for industry’s development of public lands; support for vaccine delivery for hundreds of millions of children; support for IRS enforcement; and elimination of a program that helps low income people get heating assistance.
