Dog Dies From Lymphoma Six Months After Eating RoundUp Spray

December 7th, 2017

The young dog of a friend of the family's has recently died of lymphoma.  The dog was not old - around six years. Six months ago, the man of the house sprayed RoundUp on their grass verges and roundabout the garden.  The dog went over and ate some of the grass which had been sprayed.  It became sick - not just regurgitating the grass, which cats and dogs like to do to clean out their stomachs, but was clearly feeling unwell.  He remained sick and was not his usual self for many days.  So they took him to the vet, who ...

Food Glyphosate Levels From RoundUp Increased 500 Times Since 1994

December 6th, 2017

Environment and Health RoundUp, which contains glyphosate, is not biodegradable.  Interesting, I think, that Monsanto had to be taken to court a couple of years ago, to get them to remove their false claim of 'biodegradable' from the packaging of their RoundUp weedkiller. RoundUp weedkiller, and Monsanto's related RoundUp Ready seeds and plants, are a multi-billion dollar industry. For over 20 years, they have marketed their RoundUp weedkiller as 'biodegradable', happily duping farmers, agriculturalists, city councils, governments, and the general public about the safety of RoundUp, which contains glyphosate, an ingredient which WHO,  World Health Organization,  last year declared is a 'probable ...

Shop-Bought Comfrey Is Ruined Medicinally, And Is Inedible

October 30th, 2017

Natural Remedy Gone Wrong The old, traditional comfrey with a broad leaf was a great healer, and it was edible.  Recently, I have tried eating a shop-bought, genetically modified comfrey, which I now have in my garden, adding a small leaf of it to a mound of silver-beet, just as I used to do in the old days.  It gave me a mild stomach-ache for several days. This new comfrey is dry, compared to the old, healing comfrey, which dripped with silica-rich mucilage when you broke off a stem.  Modern comfrey has almost no silica-containing mucilage. Shop-bought comfrey is recommended by plant shops ...

Glyphosate Ban In Europe Still To Be Fought June 2016

June 21st, 2016

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 ...

NZ Grass Develops Immunity To Glyphosate Herbicide Round Up

May 14th, 2016

Environment Agricultural Chemicals and the use of Toxic Herbicides and Pesticides In New Zealand: This post was first published in 2012 on this website and has just been restored. New Zealand's TV1 reported on 13th December 2012 that a rye grass grown in the South Island has developed a resistance to the glyphosate weedkillers. Monsanto's RoundUp weedkiller is one such weedkiller which contains glyphosate. Good to bring this herbicide into the spot-light again, More knowledge about glyphosate and its harmful effects might cause people to think twice about using it. WHO have declared glyphosate a probable cancer risk since first publishing this article. Merrilyn's new ...
