UPDATE (09/12/18): the current list has been updated with results from the Environmental Defence group in Canada.

Concern over glyphosate in food is on the rise after Monsanto was found guilty in covering up their cancer-causing product, Roundup. Monsanto has been under scrutiny ever since they were ordered to pay $289 million in damages to plaintiff, Dewayne Johnson.

Just after the first successful trial in taking down Monsanto, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) published a haunting report on the levels of glyphosate in food. According to the independent laboratory tests commissioned by the EWG, popular oat cereals, oatmeal, granola and snack bars come with a heavy dose of the cancer-causing weedkiller, Roundup.

Why Should We Care About Glyphosate in Food?

Glyphosate is the main ingredient found in the popular weed-killer Roundup. Back in 2015, a famous study published by the International Agency for Research of Cancer (IARC) came to the conclusion that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans (1).”

The link between glyphosate and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is particularly strong. One study, published in 2008 by Swedish researchers, found that exposure to glyphosate tripled the risk of a subtype of non-Hodgkin called small lymphocytic lymphoma (2).

Another study published in 2003 showed a suggestive link between glyphosate-based herbicide use and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The more pesticides a subject used, the more non-Hodgkin lymphoma incidences increased. Subjects who used five or more of the nine pesticides were “twice as likely to be NHL cases than controls (3).”

Aside from cancer, glyphosate has been associated with a host of health issues, like kidney disease (3), reproductive problems (4), liver damage (5) and birth defects (6).

Glyphosate also interferes with the ability of a plant to uptake nutrients from the soil. Glyphosate, which is a patented chelating agent, binds with nutrients in the soil, and prevents plants from absorbing them. It also acts as an antibiotic (7), which can kill bacteria both in the soil, and our own guts (both of which are incredibly important for plant and human health).

Regardless of the evidence, Monsanto still states that “Glyphosate has a 40-year history of safe and effective use. In evaluations spanning those four decades, the overwhelming conclusion of experts worldwide, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has been that glyphosate can be used safely.” Despite the lawsuit, it seems Monsanto is still in denial.

Products and Brands Filled with Glyphosate

Aside from the EWG report on glyphosate in food, other companies have also done independent testing for glyphosate residues in everyday food products. In 2016, Food Democracy Now! and The Detox Project commissioned tests that found high levels of glyphosate in many American foods – even products that are certified organic or non-GMO.

Below is a complete list of foods that contain glyphosate residues. I’ve combined data from both the report EWG released, as well as the reports released from Food Democracy Now! and the group’s “Detox Project.” I’ve also updated this list (September 12/2018) with recent results from Environmental Defence in Canada, who also tested various food products commonly found in supermarkets.

How To Steer Clear of Glyphosate in Foods

Glyphosate contamination cannot be removed by washing (it is absorbed into the plant while it’s growing). It also is not broken down by cooking or baking.

In order to avoid glyphosate in food, follow the pointers below:

1. Look for ORGANIC Non-GMO Project Verified Items

If you’re purchasing a processed food item (that is, something boxed, bagged or canned), you can make sure it doesn’t contain GMO ingredients by looking for the Non-GMO Project Verified symbol (see below). While non-GMO verified means the item will be not be “Roundup Ready,” that doesn’t mean that the crop it came from will not be sprayed with glyphosate to dry out the crop (such as the case with oats and wheat). So make sure you follow tip number 2 (below). When buying a non-gmo project verified item, also make sure that item in organic!

2. Certified Organic is Better Than Non-Organic

By purchasing certified organic foods, you’ll be rest assured that your food doesn’t contain any glyphosate-containing chemicals. Unfortunately, glyphosate use is so rampant, that some organic foods may contain small amounts of glyphosate residues (say, from neighboring crops). The good news is that organic foods contain much lower levels of glyphosate compared to their conventional counterparts.

3. Look for Glyphosate Residue Free Labels

The Detox Project, a research and certification platform that uses an FDA-registered food-testing lab to test for toxic chemicals launched their own “Glyphosate Residue Free” label. This label offers more transparency and assures the purchaser that they’re not getting any glyphosate in the food they’re buying. While these labels aren’t mainstream, the Detox Project is working with food manufacturers and grocery chains to get this label on more products.

WE WORDEN VERKOCHT!

RUTTE GAAT OP 11 DECEMBER 2018 -ZONDER OOK MAAR ENIGE INSPRAAK VAN DE BEVOLKING- EEN NEDERLAND VERNIETIGEND DOCUMENT TEKENEN:
HET VN ‘MIGRATIEPACT VAN MARRAKESH’
En de VERRADERLIJKE Tweede Kamer wilde er met uitzondering van de PVV, het FvD en de SGP niet eens over debatteren!

– Wat houdt dit ‘pact’ in?
Immigratie wordt daarin tot ‘mensenrecht’ verheven, wat betekent dat in ons land straks enorme aantallen migranten uit Afrika en het Midden Oosten zullen binnen vallen, zonder dat we er iets tegen zullen mogen en kunnen doen.
Afrikaanse landen zullen, ook al volgens het pact, niemand terug hoeven nemen!
Nederland en andere landen die dit pact ondertekenen worden feitelijk verplicht om iedereen die maar wil komen toe te laten.

Maar verstandige regeringsleiders wijzen dit smerige VN/E.U. plan af.

– Oostenrijk noemt door Nederland gesteunde VN migratiepact van Marrakesh ‘vergif’
Dit land weigert mee te doen aan deze ‘maatschappelijke zelfmoord’ door onbeperkte massa immigratie en de daaraan verbonden islamisering.

– Hongarije noemt de EU-plannen voor immigratie een ‘horror verhaal’
Orbán: “De EU ‘wil onze sleutels van de poort (van ons land) afpakken”.
Hij waarschuwde er ook voor dat de EU onbeperkte massa immigratie er heel snel doorheen wil drukken, omdat ‘Brussel’, de E.U. dus, bang is dat anti-immigratiepartijen na de Europarlement Verkiezingen in 1919 veel groter zullen zijn geworden en dus een stok zullen kunnen steken voor die nefaste E.U. plannetjes.

– Italië sloot zijn zeegrenzen en laat geen nieuwe NGO smokkelschepen toe. Het aantal illegale binnenkomers is dan ook drastisch gedaald.
Het land is ook bezig steeds meer radicale moslims het land uit te zetten.

Maar in Nederland, óns land, worden we door Rutte en zijn trawanten eens te meer belazerd: Iets dat afgelopen week werd bewezen toen de Tweede Kamer met uitzondering van de PVV, het FvD en de SGP niet eens wilde debatteren over het verwoestende pact van Marrakesh.
Daaruit leerden we ook dat partijen als de VVD en het CDA, die bij vorige verkiezingen beloofden een strenger immigratiebeleid te gaan voeren, hun kiezers opnieuw voor de gek hebben gehouden, en nu op een gekende, fascistische, wijze (machtsmisbruik door de zogenaamde ‘élite’) gewoon het tegendeel doen van wat men beloofde. Terwijl het volk er niets over mag zeggen.
WE WORDEN EENS TE MEER VERKOCHT!

5G Network Uses Same EMF Waves as Pentagon Crowd Control System.

The global rollout of 5G is well underway, and we soon may see new small cell towers near all schools, on every residential street, dispersed throughout the natural environment, and pretty much everywhere. But the safety of this technology is in serious question, and there is a raging battle to stop the taxpayer funded implementation of 5G.

The new cell network uses high-band radio frequency millimeter waves to deliver high bandwidth data to any device within line of sight.

Today’s cellular and Wi-Fi networks rely on microwaves – a type of electromagnetic radiation utilizing frequencies up to 6 gigahertz (GHz) in order to wirelessly transmit voice or data. However, 5G applications will require unlocking of new spectrum bands in higher frequency ranges above 6 GHz to 100 GHz and beyond, utilizing submillimeter and millimeter waves – to allow ultra-high rates of data to be transmitted in the same amount of time as compared with previous deployments of microwave radiation. [Source]

One of the ways 5G will enable this is by tapping into new, unused bands at the top of the radio spectrum. These high bands are known as millimeter waves (mmwaves), and have been recently been opened up by regulators for licensing. They’ve largely been untouched by the public, since the equipment required to use them effectively has typically been expensive and inaccessible. [Source]

Among the many potential problems with exposure to 5G radio waves are issues with the skin, which is interesting when you consider that this technology is already being used in the military for crowd control purposes.

This kind of technology, which is in many of our homes, actually interacts with human skin and eyes. The shocking finding was made public via Israeli research studies that were presented at an international conference on the subject last year. Below you can find a lecture from Dr. Ben-Ishai of the Department of Physics at Hebrew University. He goes through how human sweat ducts act like a number of helical antennas when exposed to these wavelengths that are put out by the devices that employ 5G technology. [Source]

The U.S. military developed a non-lethal crowd control weapon system called the Active Denial System (ADS). It uses radio frequency millimeter waves in the 95GHz range to penetrate the top 1/64 of an inch layer of skin on the targeted individual, instantly producing an intolerable heating sensation that causes them to flee.

This video demonstrates:

This technology is becoming ubiquitous in top world militaries, demonstrating how genuinely effective this radio frequency energy can be at causing harm to humans and anything else.

U.S., Russian, and Chinese defense agencieshave been active in developing weapons that rely on the capability of this electromagnetic technology to create burning sensations on the skin, for crowd control. The waves are Millimetre waves, also used by the U.S. Army in crowd dispersal guns called Active Denial Systems. [Source]

Final Thoughts

 

The fight over 5G is heating up at the community level, and awareness of this important issue is spreading fast. For more background on 5G, watch this video from Take Back Your Power, featuring Tom Wheeler, Former FCC Chairman and corporate lobbyist, who delivers a rather intimidating and presumptuous speech praising this new technology. The fight over 5G is heating up at the community level, though, and now is the time to speak out against it.
