The Ever-increasing Presence Of Glyphosate

By Catherine J. Frompovich, Natural Blaze

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s ‘flagship product’ Roundup®–now owned by Bayer Pharmaceuticals [1], apparently has contaminated every last bastion of healthful food production and naturally-grown field crops.

The latest and most unfortunate producer of clean and organic grain products, Bob’s Red Mill of Oregon, has been sued over the findings of glyphosate in its “organic oatmeal.”

“Bob’s Red Mill Faces Class Action Lawsuit over Glyphosate Weedkiller Contamination”

The ever-increasing confirmation of glyphosate in just about everything consumers put into our bodies, i.e., food, water, medicinal products—even vaccines, now is being confirmed in organic foods!   Grains, in particular!

Dr. Anthony Samsel, PhD, is the researcher who verified finding glyphosate in vaccines, as he reports in the following video.

For those who want to do your own research regarding glyphosate “loads” within your foods and/or your bodies, here are some resources The Detox Project offers:

Watch this short, entertaining and “learning-curve” video wherein the facts about glyphosate become obvious! The gentle persistence of the interviewer is precious!

Currently, there is an online Petition “Tell the National School Boards Association: No More Monsanto Roundup Weedkiller!,” which consumers—parents, in particular—may want to sign here.

The above Petition claims,

In the U.S., more than 26 million pounds of Roundup are sprayed every year on school grounds, public playgrounds and gardens.

[Is that a form of corporate- and government-officially-sanctioned child endangerment?]

Someone should get a similar Petition going for all states road maintenance, etc. departments NOT TO SPRAY Roundup or any carcinogenic product(s) to destroy/kill roadside vegetation.

Personally, I think that’s a logical and public health issue, which should be made federal law enacted by the U.S. Congress.  Where are the EPA and HHS on that national public health-impacting issue?

Finally, are there any remedial programs to eliminate the soil, earth and growing fields from glyphosate and its residues besides stop using it?

I found the following posted in December 2011by Sweet Bay Farm (TURNING DEPLETED CROPLAND INTO FERTILE PASTURE):

Our Remediation Plan

Glyphosate remediation was a big conversation topic at the Acres USA conference.  By the end of the conference, the consensus landed on a “silver buckshot” approach.  The approach was to do everything possible to (1) rejuvenate the beneficial soil organisms that will eventually degrade glyphosate and (2) add soil amendments that can help with detoxification.  We were happy to learn that we’re already doing most of them!  Here’s our plan:

  1. Inoculate seeds with beneficial microbes such as mycorrhyzae, nitrogen-fixing bacteria for legumes, etc.
  2. Spray microbe inoculants on the fields, especially inoculants that contain pseudomona bacteria.  Pseudomona are easily wiped out by glyphosate, and some species are known to be detoxifiers.
  3. Include a microbe stimulant, such as molasses or sugar, in the spray mix.  This gives the microbes an extra leg up.
  4. Bring back tillage.  No-till farming, especially when combined with GMO crops, glyphosate, and few to no winter cover crops, tends to shut down the soil biology.  Open the soils up to counteract this effect and to wake up the microbes.
  5. Amend the soil with humates.  Humates are ancient organic matter that has decomposed as far as possible.  It’s soft coal, known as leonardite or lignite in the drilling professions.  Each microscopic humic acid molecule contains dozens of functional molecular groups and around 100 negatively charged sites that can bind with agricultural chemicals.  Humates also add black organic matter (humus) to the soil and provide a nice home for microbes.

Is there hope for ridding the Planet of glyphosate, its toxicity and carcinogenic potentialities?

Yes, but only if farmers, all food growing and processing-manufacturing establishments demand certified glyphosate-free crops; and home gardeners STOP purchasing glyphosate-containing products to use like water, because it’s not safe.  The lobbyist in the above video, when asked to drink it, said, “No, I’m not stupid!”

So, let’s take his admonition about being not stupid to heart: STOP USING ALL GLYPHOSATE-CONTAINING PRODUCTS.

Herbicides containing glyphosate consumers may want to know:

Roundup Promax
Ranger Pro Herbicide
Monterey Remuda Full Strength
Gly Pho Sel Pro Dry 75SG
Weed Impede 2 in1 Concentrate
Alligare Phosphate 5.4 Herbicide
Eraser Max Herbicide
Hi-Yield Killzall 365
Aqua Star Aquatic Herbicide 53.8% Glyphosate
Eraser Foaming Weed Killer
Aqua Neat Aqua Herbicide
Agrisel Gly Pho-Sel Pro 41% (Glyphosate Herbicide)

However, if you think your health has been damaged by the use of Monsanto’s Roundup products, take note of the following law firm’s designation by the California Superior Court for the County of Alameda. The law firm has offices in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Washington, DC.

Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman attorney R. Brent Wisner on March 15, 2018, was appointed administrator and co-lead counsel for the Roundup Products Cases filed in the JCCP. known as the Roundup Judicial Council Coordination Proceedings or simply Roundup JCCP)  www.baumhedlundlaw.com

The nature of pre-harvest glyphosate use means that applications are made close to harvest. Users should aim to ensure residues of glyphosate are kept to a minimum and follow Good Agricultural Practice to ensure residue levels are below the MRL (Maximum Residue Level)…
