A global threat? A slight nuisance? Whatever you decide to call it, the U.S. government gave Monsanto a patent for the main ingredient in toxic RoundUp, glyphosate, in 2010. It has been killing a wide range of pathogenic organisms (including the healthy bacteria we need to fight super bugs) even since it first came into use in 1974.
Monsanto will tell you that:
“Roundup® brand herbicides continue to be a perfect fit with the vision of sustainable agriculture and environmental protection. In fact, their use on Roundup Ready® crops has allowed farmers to conserve fuel, reduce tillage and decrease the overall amount of herbicides used.”
These are all claims which have been proven to be untrue.
So why would the company seek a patent for an herbicide to be used as an antibiotic? All the more important to ask is, why is this toxic ingredient allowed to be used when it has been proven again and again to allow toxic bacteria like clostridium to flourish?
In 2013, the Chief Medical Officer for England, Dame ally Davies, announced that antibiotic-resistant diseases posed an ‘apocalyptic’ threat to the world. The CDC has even admitted (finally) that the age of antibiotics must come to an end as antibiotic-resistant bacteria begin to reign supreme over conventional treatments. Has Monsanto purposefully created a healthy bacteria killer?
Dr. Don Huber, a preeminent GMO expert, has said:
“Despite what the media and so-called “experts” proclaim, there are NO peer-reviewed scientific papers establishing the safety of GMO crops.”
To be honest, not a single person has been able to establish that genetically engineered proteins (i.e. the foreign proteins produced by the genetically modified plant), or the chemicals we’re consuming in ever-growing quantities as a result of the genetic engineering process are safe. In fact, the facts point quite clearly in the opposite direction.
Dr. Huber also explains that though glyphosate is an herbicide, it was first patented as a mineral chelator. It mobilizes nutrients so that your body cannot absorb them. Since glyphosate was also patented as an antibiotic, it does double damage. He says:
