Reasons to be wary of glyphosate

People who have lived, studied, and taught school in foreign nations know that US fourth, eighth, and twelve graders have very low math/science PISA scores, compared to other nations like China, Finland, Switzerland, and Korea. Autism, hyperactivity disorders, and school violence is at record levels in US students and adults.

“Neurobehavioural effects of developmental toxicity,” published by the Lancet Neurology, 2014, reviews 12 neuro-toxicants, including chlorpyrifos (as sprayed by Syngenta), and defines correlations to neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments.

Genetically engineered food has not been tested rigorously as required in physics.

President Obama is re-organizing the safety protocols within the FDA, USDA, and EPA for genetic engineering.

Why? Russia, the Chinese military, and 19 nations of the the European Union (EU) are opting out of GE foods. The EU has for the first time not renewed glyphosate’s (Roundup Ready) license.

A false negative is similar to when a court determines a guilty person is innocent from lack of sufficient evidence. This indicates not enough testing was required by the FDA to reveal the actual cause of disease.

You may have noticed in all US hospitals and hospital clinical labs there has never been testing for glyphosate.
