Stop using dangerous herbicides

New Study Finds Roundup Herbicide To Be 125X More Toxic Than Regulators Claim

Stop-using-dangerous-herbicides

A new report has actually found that Roundup, manufactured by Monsanto, is way more poisonous than ever thought. Many countries have banned this toxic cocktail – why not the US?

Roundup is one of the biggest selling herbicides sold around the world. Many studies in the past (i) have reported links to a range of diseases such as cancer, kidney disease, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, autism, birth defects and many more. It is also blamed for the catastrophic loss to the bee population.

Its main ingredient is glyphosate and many countries have banned its use. Russia have recently gone one step further and actually taken moves to classify using such products to damage the population as ‘acts of terrorism’. The US still allows it to be sold and used in vast quantities.

However, a new study published in the journal Biomedical Research International (ii) states that Roundup herbicide is 125 times more toxic than its active ingredient glyphosate studied in isolation. This is shocking.

The introduction to the report says:

“Pesticides are used throughout the world as mixtures called formulations. They contain adjuvants, which are often kept confidential and are called inerts by the manufacturing companies, plus a declared active principle, which is usually tested alone. We tested the toxicity of 9 pesticides, comparing active principles and their formulations, on three human cell lines. Glyphosate, isoproturon, fluroxypyr, pirimicarb, imidacloprid, acetamiprid, tebuconazole, epoxiconazole, and prochloraz constitute, respectively, the active principles of 3 major herbicides, 3 insecticides, and 3 fungicides.

Despite its relatively benign reputation, Roundup was among the most toxic herbicides and insecticides tested. Most importantly, 8 formulations out of 9 were up to one thousand times more toxic than their active principles. Our results challenge the relevance of the acceptable daily intake for pesticides because this norm is calculated from the toxicity of the active principle alone. Chronic tests on pesticides may not reflect relevant environmental exposures if only one ingredient of these mixtures is tested alone.”

We are being poisoned en masse. The true dangers have been masked by previously only focusing on individual components, the so called ‘active principles’. This new report is effectively saying that it is now impossible to calculate the ‘acceptable level of harm’ if we only consider the toxicity of one single ingredient. The results of the research are emphatic. They found that with the exception of one pesticide (Matin),

“All formulations were cytotoxic and far more toxic than their APs [active principles].”

The US needs to wake up and join the other countries that recognize this extreme toxicity and have already banned it’s use.
