Monsanto Toxicologist Donna Farmer recently made the following statement regarding the toxicity of Glyphosate:
“I’ll give you an example of one of the studies,” she said during the debate, which was aired as part of The Doctors, an award-winning TV show. “They actually injected the Round-Up formulation into the abdomen of the animals and they did have an effect. But that’s not a relevant route of exposure for somebody who is going to be spraying that herbicide. So that’s what we look at and the regulatory agencies look at and, like the other bodies at the World Health Organization. IARC only looks and says, “If I inject it there’s a hazard.” So there’s different ways we look at the data.” (March Against Monsanto)
This is a very interesting statement. Let’s read it again: “IARC only looks and says, “If I inject it there’s a hazard.””
“If I inject it there’s a hazard.” Let that sink in. Then, let’s ask the question: Why does Glyphosate Patent US7771736 include injection as an acceptable means of administration?
Glyphosate Patent US7771736
Compositions of the present invention can be administered by any means that produces contact of the active agent with the agent’s site of action in the body, for example, suitable means including, but not limited to, oral, parenteral (e.g., intravenous, intraarterial, subcutaneous, rectal, subcutaneous, intramuscular, intraorbital, intracapsular, intraspinal, intraperitoneal, or intrasternal), topical (nasal, transdermal, intraocular), intravesical, intrathecal, enteral, pulmonary, intralymphatic, intracavital, vaginal, transurethral, intradermal, aural, intramammary, buccal, orthotopic, intratracheal, intralesional, percutaneous, endoscopical, transmucosal, sublingual and intestinal administration. They can be administered by any conventional means available for use in conjunction with pharmaceuticals, either as individual therapeutic agents or in a combination of therapeutics. Preferably, composition of the present invention is administered as a pharmaceutical formulation comprising at least one compound of the present invention, as defined above, together with one or more pharmaceutically acceptable carriers. It can be co-administered in the form of a tablet or capsule, as an agglomerated powder, or in a liquid form, or as a liposome. (Farm Wars)
But an argument could be made that it is the herbicidal formulation that is hazardous if injected, and this must be a different Glyphosate formula. Uh huh. So, what about all of the vaccines that are contaminated with the herbicidal formulation?
Interestingly enough, Glyphosate is a known vaccine contaminant in vaccines deemed “acceptable” by the FDA.
This list of vaccine ingredients indicates the culture media used in the production of common vaccines and the excipients they contain.

Here is the Codex list of allowable amounts of Glyphosate contamination for food and feed, which is fed to the animals which are used to make the vaccines. No, the Glyphosate does not magically disappear once animals or humans eat it. It remains in the ingredients derived from these animals, which in turn, is injected into your body every time you take a contaminated vaccine.
The bottom line is, whether or not Glyphosate is purposely put into a vaccine or whether the ingredients used to make the vaccine contain Glyphosate, it is in the vaccines.
So, Donna, which is it? Is Glyphosate an acceptable ingredient in vaccines, or if injected is it a hazard?
According to those in charge of food, feed and vaccine safety, as well as a Monsanto patent, it is acceptable. Consider the following facts:
The FAO says Glyphosate contamination in food and feed is acceptable, and products made from animals that eat the feed are contaminated with Glyphosate.
The Glyphosate residues that end up in vaccines from using ingredients contaminated with Glyphosate are approved, and therefore acceptable.
A Glyphosate patent says it is acceptable for injection.
Yet, Monsanto’s own Toxicologist says: “If I inject it there’s a hazard.”
Yes, Donna, there is a hazard. And there is no safe level of Glyphosate in the human body, whether ingested or injected.
Anthony Samsel gave evidence to the California Environmental Protection Agency on 07/06/2017 to advise them on the safe levels of glyphosate. He wrote:
“There are no safe levels of glyphosate. Glyphosate is a synthetic amino acid and analogue of our canonical amino acid glycine and participates in plant and animal biology. One microgram of glyphosate technical acid ( N-phosphonylmethyl glycine) contains 3.561 trillion molecules each capable of integrating with a protein altering shape, folding and function. I am a US scientist and hazardous chemicals materials consultant and expert on the subject of Glyphosate. I am one of few people to have received all of the Monsanto’s trade secret sealed studies on glyphosate from the US EPA. The federal agency supplied these documents in excess of 100,000 pages to me under the FOIA with special consideration for my research into this chemical. I now have six peer-reviewed papers on the subject of glyphosate and several more papers on the glyphosate in progress, a short list to some of these studies links are appended. The full series of peer-reviewed glyphosate papers may be found at ResearchGate in the author file under Anthony Samsel.
I call on the California Environmental Protection Agency to immediately ban the chemical glyphosate based on the latest scientific research conducted here in the USA. Glyphosate has recently been found to integrate with structural proteins as well as animal i.e. human enzymes that include digestive enzymes pepsin, trypsin and lipase as well as lysozyme.”
After some technical details he finishes the document:
“The fact that glyphosate integrates with human enzymes should be reason enough to ban this chemical completely. There should be no glyphosate or glufosinate in the food supply nor in drinking water, air or soil. Glyphosate is a synthetic amino acid that should have no place in biology. We are but one biosphere, what affects one affects all.“

I repeat: Yes, Donna, there is a hazard. There is a hazard of you breathe it, eat it, drink it, inject it, or in any way use it. And you, along with the company you work for and represent, are subjecting the people of the world to this hazardous substance without conscience, remorse, or accountability to government agencies supposedly put in place to protect the rest of us from people like you. Or maybe you simply meant that it is hazardous only if YOU inject it. The rest of us must be, well, to put it mildly, somehow inhuman and not subject to the laws of nature.
So, let’s get this straight. According Donna Farmer, we should just ignore all those pesky studies that disagree with Monsanto’s bottom line and listen to what she says. And what she says is straight from the PR department at Monsanto. The message she is conveying is:
Trust me, I’m a mom and I say it’s safe. P.S., just don’t inject it, silly!
Brilliant strategy. Too bad it’s so transparent. At least to those who do a bit of research outside of the Monsanto domain.
