RoundUp ready crops are designed to withstand copious applications of RoundUp, a highly toxic, non-selective herbicide produced by Monsanto.
Contrary to what Monsanto would have us believe, RoundUp ready crops require far more chemical applications than traditional seeds.
With the same large, money hungry company responsible for selling farmers both seeds and herbicides, it is no surprise that Monsanto’s GM plants need more RoundUp to thrive.
The application of RoundUp to our food has direct implications for the health of both people and planet.
Let’s roundup RoundUp.
Say no to the genetically engineered foods; say no to the patenting of seeds; and say no to the corporatization of agriculture.

The full report of the World Health Organization’s cancer agency IARC, concluding that glyphosate is a “probable carcinogen”, has been published and is available for download: http://templatelab.com/iarc-monographs-112-02/ It’s clearly written and provides a useful document in support of individuals and groups campaigning against glyphosate herbicide spraying.

ISIS (Institute of Science in Society) Report, 24 March 2015 […] A Working Group of 17 experts from 11 countries met at IARC headquarters 3-10 March 2015 in Lyon, France. The meeting followed almost a year of review and preparation, including a comprehensive review of the latest available scientific evidence. The experts were selected on the basis of their expertise and most importantly, the absence of real or apparent conflicts of interest. The Working Group considered “reports that have been published or accepted for publication in the openly available scientific literature” as well as “data from governmental reports that are publicly available”.

International Agency for Reasearch on Cancer, 20 March 2015
[…] For the herbicide glyphosate, there was limited evidence of carcinogenicity in humans for non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The evidence in humans is from studies of exposures, mostly agricultural, in the USA, Canada, and Sweden published since 2001.
In addition, there is convincing evidence that glyphosate also can cause cancer in laboratory animals. On the basis of tumours in mice, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) originally classified glyphosate as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group C) in 1985. After a re-evaluation of that mouse study, the US EPA changed its classification to evidence of non-carcinogenicity in humans (Group E) in 1991.
The US EPA Scientific Advisory Panel noted that there-evaluated glyphosate results were still significant using two statistical tests recommended in the IARC Preamble. The IARC Working Group that conducted the evaluation considered the significant findings from the US EPA report and several more recent positive results in concluding that there is sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals. Glyphosate also caused DNA and chromosomal damage in human cells, although it gave negative results in tests using bacteria. One study in community residents reported increases in blood markers of chromosomal damage (micronuclei) after glyphosate formulations were sprayed nearby.[…]
