Natural Health and Agriculture At Risk Because of Monsanto’s Glyphosate:
Avaaz need our help to continue the battle against Monsanto’s glyphosate, which is marketed as ‘RoundUp’ by Monsanto.
Glyphosate-containing ‘RoundUp’ is probably Monsanto’s main money earner. It has for many years been falsely marketed as a ‘safe’ weedkiller, or herbicide. Farmers and householders, and town and city councils all over the western world widely use glyphosate weedkillers, believing that it does no harm.
But WHO, World Health Organization, last year in May, 2015, declared that glyphosate ‘probably’ causes cancer. After all these years of governments ignoring the issue, it is really something for WHO to hint at the danger to health.
In my experience, glyphosate poisons also disturb the natural intestinal flora of humans and animals alike, leading to conditions such as candida, or yeast infection, and excacerbating conditions such as arthritis depression and obesity.
Glyphosate is destroying flora and fauna all over the world: It helps to kill off bees and other insects and spiders which are important in the natural scheme of things for the pollination of plants. A ban on Monsanto’s glyphosate poison will help save our bees.
Glyphosate will eventually kill off everything except the Monsanto-made genetically engineered seeds, which means the planet will potentially be over-run with Monsanto’s genetically modified crops to the exclusion of everything else.
Monsanto’s glyphosate-containing RoundUp poison will eventuate in Monsanto, and other major agricultural companies, dominating the agriculture of the world. Only their genetically modified seeds, known by Monsanto as ‘RoundUp Ready’ crops will survive, and we will have to pay to grow any of these crops. We will not be allowed to use any old seeds we have around, but will have to pay for the seed giants’ patented seeds.
Wild herbs and flowers are already at risk because of glyphosate RoundUp weedkiller. Already, these plants which can cure disease, such as dandelions, plantains, self-heal and comfrey, are being destroyed on our waysides and even in our lawns and parks.
Healing through natural herbal medicine will be a thing of the past, and people will be even more reliant on pharmaceutical drugs than they are now.
People’s health will suffer if glyphosate is not banned for good: Glyphosate gets into our organs and pollutes our bodies, making us less resistant to diseases. It is also a likely cause of obesity.
No heritage plants or trees will be available – the chemical and seed giants will make us pay for their patented seeds and fruit trees too. And the quality of these new hybrid plants and seeds will most likely be inferior to our older type, more disease-resistant plants and seeds.
Food sources should not be owned by anybody. – Food and water are basic human rights of all mankind, and it is deplorable that these chemical and seed companies are working towards controlling humankind and profiting by making them dependent upon their system of agriculture.
Donate if you can, to Avaaz, who are actively working towards a world ban on Monsanto’s glyphosate-containing herbicide.
