Glyphosate Ban In Europe Still To Be Fought June 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 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.

Bayer Says Stop Campaign To Save Bees Or We Will Sue

Environment Crisis: Bees Are Dying By The Millions

SumOfUs, who are working hard to save the bees, have been threatened by Bayer because of their campaign to stop the use of harmful-to-bees pesticides.

Bayer is already on the warpath of the European Commission, who have banned some insecticides because of the evidence which shows them to be harmful to bees.

Bayer want the European Commission’s ruling overturned so that they can continue right on with making and selling and profitting from their evil toxic sprays.  I wrote about Bayer’s incredibly irresponsible response to the EC’s ruling on:

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

Heading for a Major Environmental Disaster:  We need bees and pollinating insects to fertilize our crops, orchards and gardens.  Without enough of these pollinators there will be world-wide famine and we will all starve.

Many insecticides and herbicides currently on the market are killing bees by the millions, as well as many other pollinating insects.

Alexis Hope wrote me last week:  ‘The short haired bumble bee in NZ has gone extinct in the UK where it was originally imported from. They’re trying to reintroduce it from NZ back to the UK.
There are other varieties which have died out that can’t be reintroduced. Tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers (that whole night shade family of veg) are all pollinated by bumble bees from buzz polination. Something honey bees can’t do.’

Neonicotinoid insecticides are mainly to blame for the rapid decline in bee numbers across Europe, America and New Zealand.

Of course, there are other factors involved in the phenomenon of a declining bee population, such as lack of diversity in agriculture, and climate change, but there is plenty of evidence to show that neonicotinoids really do affect bees in a devastating way.  Read my post on Bee Colony Collapse Disorder from way back in 2011:

Bee Colony Collapse Disorder

Nicotinoid Insecticides Kill Bees And Harm Humans

The trouble is that these multinational corporations, which manufacture the harmful agricultural chemicals used the world over, do not wish to stop profiting from the sale of their harmful chemicals.  It is a multi-billion dollar industry.

So these big greedy companies are fighting all the way to keep their products on the market.

Save The Bee campaigners SumOfUs have received a letter from Bayer which threatens legal action unless SumOfUs stop their campaign to save the bees.  SumOfUs desperately need funds to help fight the legal battle against ‘the deep-pocketed Bayer’ on the issue of their campaign to protect the bees.

See if you can donate a little.  SumOfUs, who have influence because of their international following and their website ‘voice’, are fighting this legal battle for the rest of us.  If we all give just $5 or $10, we are doing our bit to help gain a good result.

Read about  New Zealand parliament’s concerns over bee welfare and their suggested moratorium on the use of neonicotinoid poisons .  Thankyou Alexis for posting me this link:

Alexis wrote me:

‘While the Nats go to war, looks like the Greens are trying to stop the use of neonicotinoids in NZ.’

Sue Kedgley respectfully requests
“Stop the use of pesticides that are implicated in bee deaths until an ERMA reassessment finds that they do not pose a risk to bee health.”
“It is argued that, unlike older pesticides that evaporate or disperse shortly after application, neonicotinoids incorporate themselves into the plant’s tissues and emits toxins from its roots, leaves, stems, pollen, and nectar.”
