Monsanto’s Round Up NOT tested for cancer in humans

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

SO it seems that Monsanto had to admit in court depositions that they never tested glyphosate for it’s ability to cause cancer in humans. This is the active ingredient in Round Up. That seemed bad enough but their reason for not testing is even more telling. They were never required to by the EPA?

WHAT?!! Yes, true as it sounds.

Check out the deposition image below and this link for more info here: https://www.cancertutor.com/monsanto-roundup-cancer/

 Donna Farmer, Monsanto’s lead toxicologist,  admitted in her deposition that she “cannot say that Roundup does not cause cancer” because “[w]e [Monsanto] have not done the carcinogenicity studies with Roundup.”

 

 

Food Inc.

This movie will open your eyes to how food is produced and marketed in the US. Our industrial production model views animals as units of to be sold instead of gifts of nature who sacrifice their lives for our sustenance.

Farm fresh foods are becoming increasingly available. Local food from small farmers provide grass-fed beef, free range eggs, raw milk, and pastured chickens. Farmers markets are teeming with local organic produce of all kinds. Seek and ye will find!

The film is now in Orlando at the Regal Winter Park Village 20.

E.coli Beef Recall! ( 8th this year)

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Written by Kenda Roberstson and Steve Moreau

Looks like the nation has just identified the 8th beef recall of 2009. The recall involved E. coli O157:H7 and is just the latest in a string of incidents. E. coli O157:H7 was first recognized as a cause of illness in 1982 and today accounts for the majority of food borne illnesses.

Studies have shown that grass-fed cattle are less prone to developing this deadly strain of E. coli. here is the link for more info: http://www.eatwild.com/foodsafety.html.  All the  more reason to buy direct from local farmers who grow grass fed beef,  raw milk and free range eggs.  It should come as no surprise that cattle on the typical grain feedlot are the major source of this problem.  A predominant grain diet has negative effects on the cattle’s  digestive tract and makes them prone to developing this strain of E.coli.

Instead of the draconian National Animal Identification System(http://farmtoconsumer.org/nais.html) how about animal feed reform and changing the feedlot  system.  Better yet find a local farmer who does  grass-fed beef and ask to visit the farm and ask about their feeding program, and do they use hormone implants?  Remember grass is the natural diet for cattle.

National Animal Identification System is the proposed electronic tracking process,which opponents say will be too expensive and not solve the problem of diseased animals coming from other countries. Protect your access to grass-fed raw milk, truly organic chicken, and other farm fresh foods in Orlando and through out Florida.
