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, ...

Causes of Cancer Article In NZ Listener 2015 Has Major Omissions

June 2nd, 2015

Cancer Is A Political Disease, as Doctor Samuel Epstein famously wrote. This article about cancer, which featured in this week's NZ Listener,  May 16-22, 2015, was yet another gloss-over of the real, underlying causes of most cancers. Remember that book by Samuel B. Epstein, 'The Politics Of Cancer'?  Epstein's concerns in the 1970,s or early '80's are as relevant today as they were then. One thing the Listener article had right:  Just because you carry a gene which might increase your chances of getting cancer, carrying the gene does not mean that you need to succumb to the disease.  Most cancers can be ...

Bee-Killing Insecticides Banned In Europe, But Now Bayer Sues

January 14th, 2015

Environment:  Food Chain At Risk. Below, see the petition to sign, to keep bee-killing poisons out of our environment and protect environment. Neonicotinoid insecticides were recently banned in Europe, in 2014.  But now Bayer, who makes some of these bee-killers, is sueing the European Commission to have the ban overturned. Bayer and Syngenta are two of the largest companies in the world which market agricultural chemicals.  They both claim that the decision made by the European Commission to ban bee-killers is unfair. To bleat 'Unfair' somewhat weakens the severity of the issue at hand - we are not squabbling over marbles here.  The earth ...
