Monsanto in Epic Fail with Attempted Attack on Global Glyphosate Study

Sustainable Pulse – May 22nd, 2018

The peer-reviewed accepted manuscripts from the pilot phase of the Global Glyphosate Study were revealed last Wednesday in a Press Conference at the European Parliament.

The results of the short-term pilot study showed that glyphosate-based herbicides (GBHs) were able to alter certain important biological parameters in rats, mainly relating to sexual development, genotoxicity and the alteration of the intestinal microbiome, at the ‘safe’ level of 1.75 mg/kg/day set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

As is normal practice for Monsanto, their Public Relations department was soon in action to try and crush the scientists involved and the study results, which could cause major damage to the product that supports their whole business model – the glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup.

However, this time their PR campaign against the Study was only met with contempt and disdain from journalists, politicians and the public in countries across Europe.

The Global Glyphosate Study involves The Ramazzini Institute, the University of Bologna (Faculty of Agriculture, Veterinary Science and Biostatistics) the Genoa Hospital San Martino, the Italian National Institute of Health, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York and the George Washington University.

Documentary: Modified (2017) – (87 min) Why are GMO foods not labeled in North America?

‘Modified’ is a first-person feature documentary that questions why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the United States and Canada, despite being labeled in 64 countries around the world. Shot over a span of ten years, the film follows the ongoing struggle to label GMOs, exposing the cozy relationship between the biotech industry and governments. The film is anchored in the intimate story of the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, a prolific gardener, seed saver, and food activist who battled cancer while the film production was underway. Interweaving the personal and the political, the film uses family archives, animations, and mouth-watering vignettes from the filmmaker’s award-winning PBS cooking show to create a moving account of family legacy, grassroots activism, and the journey for a more sustainable and transparent food system.

Dr. Stephanie Seneff Lecture: Glyphosate, Sulfate Deficiency & Degenerative Diseases

We are so excited to share this with you! Friends of the late John Balatinecz and Dr. Shiv Chopra have collaborated to bring Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist, MIT Computer Science and AI Laboratory to Toronto, ON, Canada once again for a special lecture. This event is to honor their memory and mission to help educate the public on the many health risks from dangerous toxins in our environment and in our food from the use of RoundUp.

Since you attended Dr. Seneff’s last lecture on April 28, 2016 we thought you would be interested in the opportunity to see her again and be one of the first to hear about her latest research and insights on this controversial subject. You will learn about a mineral deficiency (that no one talks about yet) that appears to be a result of these toxins which affect some very important functions in our body, how we function (or struggle) daily and disease development. Read more about the subject of Dr. Seneff’s talk here.

NEW EXPERT PANEL DISCUSSION:

New this year to the event is an expert panel discussion with some alternative health and environmental experts. What questions will you have? How can we get changes in regulation to happen? See the Event page for all the details and who is on our expert panel. You have to be there to participate in this discussion!

There is no charge for tickets once again, thanks to our amazing sponsors (see below) who are supporting this initiative and some attendees who have kindly sent us donations. This is a “pay what you can” event, and cash donations may be made at the door.

This year, our event will be at Glenview Presbyterian Church, just south of Yonge & Lawrence. To reserve your ticket to the live event in Toronto, sign up on the Eventbrite link at the bottom of the event web page here. (Map and directions on Eventbrite.) Save your seat now!!

We are excited to see you at this very important lecture on March 27! Doors open at 10:30 am, lecture will begin at 11:00 am! Come early and meet our sponsors who will have important information and opportunities for you.
