Breast cancer and herbicides and how they work. What causes breast cancer? These herbicides in our food supply? While the EPA limit is 7,000 times the levels to be proven in causing health effects in animals? I have read articles and witnessed the images of a result to a new French study that was conducted on rats for two years. This is the equivalent of a human lifespan, rats to humans. The rats had dramatically shortened life spans because of organ damage and organ failure. Shocking massive tumors had developed after 90-days. These were prominently breast or mammary tumors in female rats. Previous studies had been done and the scientists behoved the fact that the required 90-days was not enough to select evidence needed in the report of toxicity to health and human health by the herbicide glyphosate ingredient that is in Monsanto’s Roundup and numerous other brands. And now we have it. Images, no one wanted us to see on the Monsanto side. But they cannot be erased.
While the debate rages on as to the toxicity effects of glyphosate on humans health, the increase allowed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency has hit 7,000 times the limit found to have caused liver damage in animals. Since this was a scientific study based on the European tests, then perhaps that is why it is not considered by the U.S. EPA to be a conclusion that could reel in these health effects for Americans.
“Once marketed as “safe as table salt” by Monsanto, the original patent holder and manufacturer of this glyphosate-based herbicide, evidence now indicates (glyphosate) is toxic to human DNA at concentrations diluted 450-fold lower than used in agricultural applications.” from GreenMedInfo.com
Glyphosate – Does it cause estrogen breast cancer, obesity and birth defects?
The active ingredient in the majority of herbicides and that is inside the molecular / genetic cells of GMO foods is glyphosate or a resistance to this herbicide. There are enough pubmed reports , studies, articles, books and film to make our brakes screech. Have we even been given pause?
Glyphosate stimulating estrogen and breast cancer hormone-dependent cell lines is effected
“What’s wrong with glyphosate? Bought is a film dedicated to uncovering, exposing and highlighting the facts all individuals have a right to know. Facts about things like glyphosate and its link to:…..”
“Breast Cancer – In a study just released this month, researchers found that glyphosate stimulates hormone-dependent cancer cell lines in what the study calls low and environmentally relevant concentrations. (iv)” Roundup and the other weedkillers containing glyphosate are being ingested by humans and stimulating the estrogen that in line stimulate cancer to grow when they have hormone based cancers.
Can you wash off glyphosate weedkillers and herbicides?
If we just washed the food better does the glyphosate herbicide come off?
“It’s important to understand that the glyphosate sprayed on conventional and genetically engineered crops actually becomes systemic throughout the plant, so it cannot be washed off. It’s inside the plant. For example, genetically engineered corn has been found to contain 13 ppm of glyphosate, compared to zero in non-GMO corn. At 13 ppm, GMO corn contains more than 18 times the “safe” level of glyphosate set by the EPA. Organ damage in animals has occurred at levels as low as 0.1 ppm. If that’s not reason enough to become a label reader to avoid anything with corn in it, such as corn oil or high fructose corn syrup, I don’t know what is.” Nutritionally, corn vs. GMO corn “Non-GMO corn contains 437 times more calcium, 56 times more magnesium, and 7 times more manganese than GMO corn.” from Mercola.com
Glyphosate in urine and effects on kidneys
“Friends of the Earth Europe (FoE) commissioned a series of urine tests on people in 18 countries across Europe. The results were released on Thursday and FoE is asking, “Why is there weed killer in our bodies?”” Glyphosate in urine samples across Europe…..
Considering the studies of 82 in 180 with the weedkiller in their urine, multiply that by nearly half of European city dwellers. And with the lower amounts of this weedkiller allowed in Europe than in the United States, consider the jaw-dropping citizens affected by the glyphosate toxicity.
“In the NK603 study, statistically significant strong urine ionic disturbances and kidney markers could be explained by renal leakage , which is well correlated with the effects of glyphosate-based herbicides (like Roundup) observed on embryonic kidney cells . This does not exclude metabolic effects indirectly due to insertional mutagenesis linked to the plant transformation.”
What causes breast cancer? When breast cancer is accelerated by herbicide and Roundup ingredient glyphosate? Do we have a guess?
“Roundup adjuvants even stabilize glyphosate and allow its penetration into cells, which in turn inhibit estrogen synthesis as a side effect, cytochrome P450 aromatase inhibition . This phenomenon changes the androgen/estrogen ratio and may at least, in part, explain differential impacts in both sexes.”
“The study found that breast cancer cell proliferation is accelerated by glyphosate in extremely low concentrations: ppt to ppb. The greatest effect was observed in the ppb range, including single-digit ppb such as 1 ppb…… 1,000 times higher than the amount now shown to cause a 500% to 1300% increase in cancer cell proliferation. What’s even more shocking is that California’s allowable exposure level was nearly 50% HIGHER than the federal (EPA) level — 700 ppb.” from Natural News
As a woman who is allowing treatment with aromatase inhibitors of Arimidex and Faslodex, I wonder….. but I cannot say what I really wonder. Read between the lines.
If you want to know more of what it causes, here are the others.
Neorodegenerative diseases from pesticides with glyphosate?
“In this latest study, Monsanto’s Roundup was determined to be a primary factor in causing neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s, which is particularly interesting in light of another recent study which found that, even when diluted by a factor of 99.8 percent, Roundup chemicals are still fully capable of destroying both human cells and DNA. Together, these findings speak volumes in regards to rising disease rates, and lend solid credence to the notion that crop chemicals are a primary cause of chronic disease in today’s world.
“….growing body of scientific evidence documenting glyphosate toxicity. For example, a study published two years earlier — in 1995 — in the Journal of Pesticide Reform (Volume 15, Number 3, Fall 1995) written by Caroline Cox concluded:
Glyphosate-containing products are acutely toxic to animals, including humans. …In animal studies, feeding of glyphosate for three months caused reduced weight gain, diarrhea, and salivary gland lesions. Lifetime feeding of glyphosate caused excess growth and death of liver cells, cataracts and lens degeneration, and increases in the frequency of thyroid, pancreas, and liver tumors. Glyphosate-containing products have caused genetic damage in human blood cells… reduced sperm counts in male rats… an increase in fetal loss…” Glyphosate by Monsanto and health effects
“Farmers and others in Argentina use the weedkiller primarily on genetically modified Roundup Ready soy, which covers nearly 50 million acres, or half of the country’s cultivated land area. In 2009 farmers sprayed that acreage with an estimated 200 million liters of glyphosate.
“The Argentine government helped pull the country out of a recession in the 1990s in part by promoting genetically modified soy. Though it was something of a miracle for poor farmers, several years after the first big harvests residents near where the soy cop grew began reporting health problems, including high rates of birth defects and cancers, as well as the losses of crops and livestock as the herbicide spray drifted across the countryside.” from Huffington Post
Toxins from the root disease of “Fusarium on various types of food crops have been associated with disease outbreaks throughout history. They’ve “been linked to the plague epidemics” of medieval Europe, “large-scale human toxicosis in Eastern Europe,” oesophageal cancer in southern Africa and parts of China, joint diseases in Asia and southern Africa, and a blood disorder in Russia. Fusarium toxins have also been shown to cause animal diseases and induce infertility.” from Natural News
“….. the EPA’s increase is 7,000 times the limit found to have caused liver damage in animals, based upon the European tests.” Glyphosate causes liver damage in animals…
“Not yet enraged? You should be. The HR933 bill, dubbed the Monsanto Act by many, was signed into motion on March 26, 2013 and it allows biotech companies, like Monsanto, to bypass federal approval tests and plant their GMO crops despite well known health risks. This provision frees biotech companies from their liability to the people and from judicial accountability. (xi)” from the PRWeb release on ‘Bought’ the film below.
Articles and books about Monsanto glyphosate, videos and documentaries, what to do?
Read more at Wikipedia for the weed resistance that glyphosate has incurred and the extreme means used to stop the new superweeds that are growing in all countries that have used the Monsanto herbicide. There are references galore at the bottom. But considering the issue of entitlement to privacy for whatever the testing that has been done concluded, then it seems that one cannot trust anything said about Monsanto and cancer unless it is deemed harmless.
The glyphosate MSDS is a real wake-up read. Mull over the information on disposal of remnants and use of container then consider that the product has just been applied to our food. You will find many glyphosate msds and Roundup msds variations here — which are not to be confused with label information. The MSDS is the tell-all and the toxicology and carcinogenic information is at the bottom.http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/09/monsanto-roundup-herbicide.aspx http://www.naturalnews.com/Roundup.html http://www.amazon.com/World-According-Monsanto-Marie-Monique-Robin/dp/1595587098 http://www.amazon.com/Deconstructing-Monsanto-ebook/dp/B00CMLP460
About Bought the GMO and weedkiller film
“Bought is a film about the issue of health being sold out from underneath individuals through big pharmaceutical companies, dangerous vaccinations and a food supply chain contaminated by the use of GMOs. Jeff Hays started Capstone Entertainment in the mid-nineties and built a production/distribution company to a multi-million dollar level and won numerous awards in children’s programming. One of Jeff’s most notable films was Fahrenhype 9/11, which he produced in 2004 featuring Ron Silver, Dick Morris, Senator Zell Miller, Mayor Ed Koch and others. This film generated millions in revenue and was widely accepted by the public and received positive reviews from the NY Times, Variety and other media. In 2005, Jeff produced On Native Soil where he was short-listed for an Academy Award. He also produced My Workout on Lifetime Television for a year and most recently released Doctored which has already sold over 150,000 copies. Bought is currently scheduled to be released Spring 2014.

What causes breast cancer? We do not know all of it. But the revelations are here in front of us that there are some things worth avoiding. Herbicides, glyphosate and Roundup, in particular.
