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 ...

Brodifacoum Pesticide Killing Birds In New Zealand

November 9th, 2017

Toxic Chemicals: New Zealand Parklands Being Poisoned This article was first published in 2010.  I removed it to another website, but decided to republished it on this website, since I have been writing lately about the effects of poison drops in the Kaikorai Valley area, Dunedin.  I know the local council have supported the use of 1080 drops in the past few months, and have suspected that sudden faintness, bone pains, general debilitation and sick pets is the result of these 1080 drops.  I do not know whether the council here is using brodifacoum, but this is another deadly poison, and, ...

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 ...

Is 1080 Responsible For Sick Cat, Dead Birds, Kaikorai Valley Dunedin

October 29th, 2017

Environment And Health At Risk 1080 is, I am sure, threatening our health, the health of animals, and also the very birds it is meant to be protecting.  It is getting into our waterways, which will kill fish and the life which fish are dependent on for food.  This contaminated drinking water will be a danger to our own health too.  As well as 1080, we have toxic herbicides, such as glyphosate in RoundUp, being sprayed vociferously about the country roads and city parks and reserves.  These poisons also end up in the waterways and affect our health. Today is Sunday, 29th ...

Glyphosate RoundUp Weedkiller Has Name Change To G360

May 19th, 2017

Toxic Agricultural Chemicals Glyphosate has been proven to be harmful to people, yet Monsanto have happily sold their 'RoundUp' poison for decades, telling their customers that it is 'safe'. Last year, WHO, World Health Organization, made an announcement that glyphosate 'probably' causes cancer.  Many governments over the world are in the process of banning herbicides which contain glyphosate, such as we call RoundUp in New Zealand. Last Monday, 15th May, 2017, I saw a man spraying what was obviously weedkiller around our council-owned apartments in Dunedin.  I asked him what the poison was which he was using - 'Is it RoundUp?', I asked. 'No', he ...
