WHEN WILL PEOPLE LEARN?
Our children are at risk, the risk of cancer in pets is increasing, kidney and liver cancer is on the rise, and yet homeowners as well as commercial industry continue to use known carcinogenic products irresponsibly. Think of the chemicals used on lawns and gardens/landscapes alone, and wonder about all the dogs you’ve heard die of cancer. Where are their noses most of the time? Because these chemicals get into the water table, scientists believe it contributes to the epidemic of bee decline as well.

“After two decades of planting glyphosate-tolerant crops, resistant weeds have overtaken farm fields across the U.S., leaving farmers to battle an increasingly difficult situation. At least 35 weed species are now resistant to glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s broad-spectrum herbicide Roundup.1
Studies2 have also linked glyphosate to increases in Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS), a deadly plant disease that causes plants to turn yellow and die — including crops that have never been sprayed with the herbicide but were planted in a field that received an application the previous season.
In an effort to skirt disaster, Monsanto developed a new breed of genetically engineered (GE) seeds tolerant to other pesticides besides Roundup. This, they claim, is the answer to rising weed resistance — a side effect the company said would not occur from the use of their GE seeds in the first place.
We now know, without any shadow of a doubt, they were wrong. And there’s every reason to believe they are wrong about their next generation of GE seeds as well. If anything, it will likely boost weed resistance, continue driving the increase in pesticide use and make our food even more toxic.”
