Monsanto is Messing With Animals’ Sperm

Animals exposed to the commonly-used pesticide Roundup are more likely to have an impaired sperm structure, suggests new research from the University of Caen, France.

The scientists investigated the effects of Roundup after an eight day exposure in adult animals. They found a significant difference in the expression of a compound called aromatase in the testis of animals.  Aromatase is an enzyme involved in a key step in the synthesis of estrogens in the body.  They also found a reduced expression of genetic material in sperm, and a change in hormonal balance (male hormone to estrogen balance) and the resulting quality of sperm.  The scientists concluded that “The repetition of exposures of this herbicide could alter the mammalian reproduction.

Roundup is a glyphosate-based pesticide developed and sold by Monsanto. Earlier research in the journal Entropy linked the chemical pesticide to other health problems, including gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer, and Alzheimers disease.  The Entropy study showed that glyphosate impairs the functions of enzymes in the body that are essential to detoxification as well as increases the damaging effects of other environmental toxins and foodborne chemical residues.  The scientists who conducted this study indicated that glyphosate residues are found in common foods eaten regularly, including corn, soy, wheat and sugar.

Monsanto is not just the developer of the herbicide Roundup; it also created the genetically-modified seeds that have been altered to withstand being sprayed by Roundup.  For years, environmentalists, consumer groups and plant scientists from several countries have warned that our current heavy use of glyphosate is causing problems for plants, people and animals.

Earlier research found that glyphosate is linked to infertility, Parkinson’s disease, and cancer. Meanwhile, the US Environmental Protection Agency is conducting a review of glyphosate and has set a deadline of 2015 for determining if glyphosate use should be limited.

Roundup isn’t the only Monsanto-created pesticide that has been in the news for possible toxic effects. The company lost a court battle two years ago after a judge ruled it was guilty of chemical poisoning. Paul Francois, a French farmer, sued Monsanto after he suffered neurological problems including memory loss, headaches, and stammering after inhaling another of the company’s chemical pesticides known as “Lasso.”

Perhaps that is why the most common Google search term linked to “Monsanto” is “Monsanto evil”?

Tell the EPA to set stricter limits on the use of Roundup by adding your name to this petition.

Glyphosate, Contd;... Sodium is the main electrolyte found in extracellular fluid and is involved in fluid balance and blood pressure control.

All known higher lifeforms require a subtle and complex electrolyte balance between the intracellular and extracellular environment...

Such gradients affect and regulate the hydration of the body as well as blood pH, and are critical for nerve and muscle function.

Glyphosate, is it a Mineral Chelator, inhibiting mineral absorption from food?

With gmo crops using Glyphosate on RoundUp Ready Crops which inhibits the grains from assimilating nutritional minerals and its AntiBiotic effect, humanity is under Nutritional Terrorism. Glyphosate was first discovered in 1960 by Stauffer Chemicals.

Contd; Quote; Dr. Thierry Vrain; University of Victoria, BC: The Glyphosate molecule was first discovered in 1960 by Stauffer Chemicals as a De-Scaling Agent for Boiler Tubes & piping, in 1964 it was Patented in the US as a powerful and very broad spectrum descaling agent. Meaning it binds to metals indiscriminately and does a great job at "dissolving and preventing minerals from being reactive or bioavailable in solution". When the descaling agent was disposed of in nature it was obvious that it killed plants. The chemical company Monsanto promptly bought the molecule , patented it as a herbicide in 1969, and got it commercialized in 1974.

With a diet of gmo mineral deficient grains, our bodies are under attack. We have our basic Electrolytes for bodily functioning,‎
In physiology, the primary ions of electrolytes are sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca2+), magnesium (Mg2+), chloride (Cl−), hydrogen phosphate (HPO42−), and hydrogen carbonate (HCO3−)... Sodium is the main electrolyte found in extracellular fluid and is involved in fluid balance and blood pre

Nature was given to us so we could live in and on it. It had everything we could ever need. By changing/modifying this we break a lot of nature laws and therefor nature will no longer supply what we need to survive........
