Roundup Herbicide Causes Host Of
F atal Diseases New MIT Study Concludes

David Lawrence Dewey - May 8th, 2013 © copyrighted

A scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and her colleagues have found that, contrary to in what the indusrty wants you to believe that Roundup is NOT deadly to the human body, this new MIT study concludes that the active ingredient in Roundup, glyphosate, interferes with human digestion and the biosynthesis of nutrients, which can cause a host of fatal diseases.

Journalists and Physicians can NO LONGER ignore this! This has to be reported to the public !

This is a public health hazard. And these pesticides need to be removed from our seeds and its use on crops banned !

To come to the conclusion the MIT scientists have, independent scientist and consultant Anthony Samsel and MIT researcher Stephanie Seneff evaluated a plethora of scientific research on glyphosate, including data showing that the toxin disrupts microbial balance in the gut; impairs the transport of sulphate; and suppresses the normal activity of various members of the cytochrome P450 (CYP) family of enzymes, which are used by the body to break down toxins and produce blood. And in the process of their quest, these two inquiring minds determined that the negative effects of glyphodsate on mammals, which includes humans, have been greatly underestimated and have been ignored.

"Glyphosate's inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes is an overlooked component of its toxicity to mammals," write the authors in their abstract. "Residues are found in the main foods of the Western diet, comprised primarily of sugar, corn, soy and wheat ... Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet which comprises mainly of genetically modified food, those diseases include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer's disease."

The discovery that glyphosate directly inhibits CYP enzyme activity is noteworthy, as this class of enzymes is responsible for regulating proper metabolism. When CYP enzymes are blocked from functioning as intended, in other words, a condition known as gut dysbiosis can result, which in turn can lead to inflammatory bowel disease and other chronic gastrointestinal disorders. Such disorders, as you may already know, are often linked to autism spectrum disorders and various other brain conditions.

Beyond this, glyphosate has also been shown to directly interfere with reproductive function. A known chelator, the spraying of Roundup on crops has been shown to not only deplete nutrients from crops, but also block their absorption from soil. When ingested, glyphosate and glyphosate residues can cause similar damage in humans, as it both depletes and decreases the bioavailability of important reproductive nutrients like cholesterol sulfate and zinc. Glyphosate has also been shown to cross the placental barrier and damage developing human life in mothers' wombs.

"Contrary to the current misconception that has been put out by the industry and even our own FDA that glyphosate is relatively harmless to humans, the available evidence shows that glyphosate is the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies," explain the authors in their discussion.

"While glyphosate is obviously not the only environmental toxin to contribute to these diseases and conditions, glyphosate's ability to disrupt the gut bacteria, to impair serum transport of sulfate and phosphate, and to interfere with CYP enzymes, logically progresses to this multitude of diseased states, through well-established biological processes."

Because it inteferes with the absorbtion of nutrients the human body needs, especially, amino acids, minerals, proteins, trace element minerals, fatty acids, all which are required to produce healthy immune cells and to provide nutrients to all organs in the human body, this toxin needs to be banned immediately and our seeds need to returned to how nature made them, not mankind inserting pesticides into the seeds !

It is time to broadcast this widely. Send this to your family and friends and ask them to do the same.

Here is a .pdf of the actual MIT study, MIT STUDY

Below pretty much sums this up very simply, is this what you want to put in your body, in your children's bodies?

pesticides in GMO foods

And if you have not read my previous articles on food warnings, Foods To Avoid and GMO crops, please do so, it will save your life. Did you know that approximately 80% of both corn and soy are genetically modified ? And there are many foods that have been genetically modified ! Read my column below on Monsanto !

Foods To Avoid

And corn has other pesticides in it as well !

GMO foods

And did you know that GMO foods have a virus inserted into them like formaldehyde?

Also, please take another 46 minutes and watch this video recently made by Geneticist Engineer Scientist, Dr. David Suzuki.

Dr. David Suzuki

Dr. David Suzuki presents
What are Roundup Ready and Pesticide GMO crops? What You Need To Know !

Dr. Suzuki was a Geneticist Engineer Scientist for 25 years. He has recently decided to speak out against GMO ( Genetically Modified Organisms - Foods ) and narrates this 46 minute documentary to educate people on the serious issue of genetically modified foods. You have a life to live that goes well beyond 46 minutes. I strongly recommend that you watch this documentary since it is in regards to our global food supply, our planet's health and the health of human beings which include you, your children and their grand children, we are creating GMO foods that causing diseases!

After watching both, help spread the word, since emails to you family and friends of these articles.

The links are :

It cannot be said any simply than this of what GMO foods does to the body.

One voice can become MILLIONS !

And my warning to ALL major media outlets... do not ignore this and fail to report on it, otherwise history will not be kind to you of what you ignored by NOT warning the public about this deadly toxin !

Also, if you have not read about this below, then read it please. This must stop!

A Farmer Faces Jail Over Raw Milk !. Yes, you read that right ! This poor farmer was arrested for selling raw milk instead of processed milk. Doesn't the Department of Agriculture have better things to do like inspecting filty meat and chickens operations instead of going around and arresting poor farmers for selling fresh raw milk !

Until next time....

Improve your health with these amazing water wands !


The water wand introduces passive natural energy waves into clean drinking water, fruit, vegetable and vitamin drinks. This process causes water molecules to shed excess minerals and other substances, which break down into finer more usable nutrients. Since the water molecule becomes lighter, you can drink more liquids. This process balances pH, transports nutrients, and absorbs more waste in the body at a faster rate. Drinking more water and fluids helps increase your rate of hydration, assimilation of nutrients and elimination (detoxification). This subtle energy is discernable and gives a feeling of well-being.

Watch actual videos of how this transformed water affects
red blood cells before and after use.
