VIDEO: How Monsanto’s Glyphosate Attacks our Core Cellular Functions

Fueling numerous diseases

Monsanto’s Round Up herbicide, containing the likely-carcinogenic glyphosate, is causing widespread mitochondrial dysfunction in cells. This is associated with a long list of degenerative disease and chronic health conditions including autism, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, type 2 Diabetes, Parkinson’s, and obesity.

The mitochondria of our cells complete some of the most important functions of cellular respiration. This is how our cells eat, excrete, and repair themselves. Mitochondria are like the batteries of the cell. They create metabolic energy through ATP.  If the mitochondria, well-defined cytoplasmic organelles of the cell are damaged, the cell cannot function.

As Pamela Coleman, PhD from Farm and Food Policy and an Analyst for the Cornucopia Institute has said:

“Contrary to the current widely-held misconception that glyphosate is relatively harmless to humans, the available evidence shows that glyphosate may rather be the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies.”

We’ve been exposed to this chemical since the 1970’s and the bioaccumulation is killing our cells’ ability to heal themselves. Folks over at the Institute for Responsible Technology have posted a wonderful video that explains this seeming complexity in simple terms.

The list of diseases that are caused by mitochondrial dysfunction is long. Two experts discuss just how toxic Round Up is and how it affects mitochondria in your body. You could read dozens of books on this topic, but you can also obtain a quick understanding from an under-utilized video that represents vast quantities of data on the subject in a nutshell, presented by Stephanie Seneff and Alex Vasquez.

    This is an important video if a bit complicated for some of us non-biologists out there. Thanks for posting this it will be helping a lot of people to understand better why they may be feeling ill and what they could do about it

    Monsanto is trying to own the food by patent.
    Plants and heirloom seeds cannot be patented. So they are fooling no one now. Epic fail.

    Patent Laws. A subject that has been at the heart of many of the problems we face, The missuse of law.
    I for one would promote a new law.
    Any Individual, Corporation, Government. Whatever outfit. That uses patents to the detrement of Mankind and our advancement be severely punished.
    That includes the continued burying of non polluting free energy technologies (And pesticide and agrochemical alternatives like Mr Schaubergers electric charge producing plough head). Demanding the payment of reperations to every soul on the planet for their greed driven power seeking destructive ways. and the sequestration of all funds held until that is fulfilled.
    A law that does not bring shame on the legal profession as so many currently being snuck in is doing.
    Much to the annoyance of the police it would seem.
    Had an enlightening chat with a local policeman recently. They to are not happy with the current state of affairs. All the having to cover up the abuse by that foul class currently usurping power through electoral fraud.

    “It’s Not The Zika Virus” —

    Doctors Expose Monsanto Linked Pesticide As Cause Of Birth Defects

    FEBRUARY 14, 2016.

    As fear mongering about the Zika epidemic runs rampant, separate organizations of doctors from Brazil and Argentina are directly challenging the notion that the Brazilian Zika virus outbreak is at the root of the recent increase in microcephaly birth defect cases.

    After the dramatic increase in congenital malformations, the Brazilian Ministry of Health moved quickly to link the phenomena to the Zika virus epidemic. Microcephaly is a congenital condition in which a baby’s head develops abnormally small.

    In spite of all the media hype surrounding the mosquito-borne Zika virus and microcephaly, there has yet to be a scientific link proven between the two.

    In a recent report by the Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns (PCST), the group revealed that the area in which most of the afflicted persons live had been sprayed with a larvicide known to cause birth defects.

    The chemical, pyriproxyfen, was added to the state of Pernambuco’s drinking-water reservoirs in 2014, by the Brazilian Ministry of Health, in an effort to stop the proliferation of the Zika-carrying Aedes aegypti mosquito.

    The report by PCST revealed that the pesticide, sold under the commercial name SumiLarv, is manufactured by Sumitomo Chemical, a Japanese subsidiary of Monsanto.

    Pyriproxyfen is a growth inhibitor of mosquito larvae,
