ROUNDUP In Wine: Toxic Chemical Glyphosate Found In 100% Of California Wines Tested

It seems Monsanto’s toxic chemical glyphosate has now found its way into wine. It isn’t surprising, however, seeing as how grapes are pesticide and herbicide-laden. Glyphosate has been showing up in foods both directly sprayed, and even foods that haven’t been sprayed, such as organic produce. It is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide and has been used since 1974. Recent research has suggested that glyphosate will “likely remain the most widely applied [herbicide] worldwide for years to come, and interest will grow in quantifying ecological and human health impacts.” The study showed that in 2014, farmers sprayed enough glyphosate to apply 0.8 pounds of the chemical to every acre of cultivated cropland in the U.S. 100 Percent of Wine Tested Contained Glyphosate A supporter of Moms Across...

Monsanto Loses Critical Case Roundup Weedkiller Case; Jury Awards $290M to Cancer Victim

San Francisco jurors just ruled that that Roundup, the most popular weedkillers worldwide, gave a former school groundskeeper terminal cancer. The court awarded him $289 million in damages.  With one main objective - to punish the agricultural company Monsanto. Dewayne Johnson's victory Friday could set a massive precedent for thousands of other cases claiming Monsanto's famous herbicide causes non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Johnson's case was the first to go to trial because doctors said he was near death. And in California, dying plaintiffs can be granted expedited trials. Doctors weren't sure Johnson would live long enough to see his trial. "He's going to live the rest of that time in extreme comfort," Litzenburg said. After the verdict, Monsanto issued a statement saying it stands by the studies that suggest Roundup does not cause cancer. (SUCH...

A Natural Soap Makes a Big Difference – Why natural is so much better…

Soap makers can be anyone from multi-national corporations, small businesses to weekend DIY health fanatics. The way they each produce soap, and the environments they make them in can drastically affect both the quality and benefits of the soap. Most importantly, the soap we use can affect our health. One of the main ways your body acquires nutrients, other than eating, is transdermally— through the skin. Your skin is your largest organ—22 square feet on average—and 60 percent of the substances you put on it is eventually absorbed into the bloodstream. This semipermeable membrane allows us to absorb vitamins and minerals, but, unfortunately, it absorbs harmful chemicals we put on it, too. Chemicals in common soaps are no joke. They can disrupt our hormones, promote allergies, lead...
