– Another Independent Study Confirms Monsanto’s RoundUp Chemicals are Lethal, Even in Small Doses (Natural Society, Sep 20, 2014):
Published just this month in the International Journal of Toxicology, the study “Glyphosate Commercial Formulation Causes Cytotoxicity, Oxidative Effects, and Apoptosis on Human Cells: Differences With its Active Ingredient,” proposes what most of us have already surmised: Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide du jour – RoundUp – is utterly killing us. What’s more – it kills us in much smaller servings than the Agriculture industry is dishing out in its common GMO and pesticide spraying practices, and it is made stronger by the additional chemicals used in the RoundUp formula.
“Aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA), and a glyphosate formulation (G formulation) were examined in HepG2 cell line, at dilution levels far below agricultural recommendations” and they are causing toxic effects on the human genome. It is the adjuvants in RoundUp working together with the glyphosate which really causes the problem.
“The glyphosate formulation studied also triggered two ‘death proteins’ in human cells known as caspase 3/7, inducing pathways that activate programmed cell death (apoptosis), a clear sign of significant toxicity.”
As many scientists have suspected, glyphosate does not reveal its true toxicity alone – but works in tandem with the other chemicals in RoundUp so that the levels of toxicity on human cells becomes catastrophic. One plausible cause is that the surfactant polyoxyethylene amine within Roundup dramatically enhances the absorption of glyphosate into exposed human cells and tissue.

Another study published in November of last year points to adjuvants working with glyphosate to cause a particularly lethal concoction. “Ethoxylated adjuvants of glyphosate-based herbicides are active principles of human cell toxicity” states:
“. . . Here we demonstrate that all formulations are more toxic than glyphosate, and we separated experimentally three groups of formulations differentially toxic according to their concentrations in ethoxylated adjuvants. Among them, POE-15 clearly appears to be the most toxic principle against human cells, even if others are not excluded. It begins to be active with negative dose-dependent effects on cellular respiration and membrane integrity between 1 and 3ppm [parts per million], at environmental/occupational doses.
We demonstrate in addition that POE-15 induces necrosis when its first micellization process occurs, by contrast to glyphosate which is known to promote endocrine disrupting effects after entering cells. Altogether, these results challenge the establishment of guidance values such as the acceptable daily intake of glyphosate, when these are mostly based on a long term in vivo test of glyphosate alone. Since pesticides are always used with adjuvants that could change their toxicity, the necessity to assess their whole formulations as mixtures becomes obvious”
Argentina has sued Monsanto for its toxic, cancer causing chemicals and GMO, but if you want to be able to sue Monsanto for their dastardly deeds, you better speak up. It is becoming nearly impossible to sue the company in the US, and legal action is just one way of taking down this eugenically motivated monster.

Twelve years after Jeffrey Smith started his campaign exposing the dangers of GMO’s and their associated herbicides and pesticides, which even Government reluctantly concur with, the very fact Monsanto are still giving cash to farmers who buy their stuff is proof enough to me they don’t give a hoot about us OR our environment, and should be forcibly closed down.
