One of the UK's largest home improvement chains, Homebase, is considering dropping Monsanto's Roundup line of weedkiller products amid growing concern over their use, after a California jury awarded dying former school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson $289 million in damages in a lawsuit alleging Roundup caused his advanced stage cancer.

Mike Adams, Natural News 8-11-18… “Monsanto hit with $290 million cancer liability ruling in Roundup (glyphosate) herbicide trial”

A San Francisco jury found Monsanto (now owned by Bayer) liable for the glyphosate-induced cancer of Dewayne Johnson, who is dying from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Johnson sprayed glyphosate 20-30 times per year on public school grounds (near children, no less), and he was twice “doused” with glyphosate due to malfunctioning equipment.

Monsanto — which has been responsible for the mass chemical poisoning of our world going back more than 40 years — hid scientific evidence proving glyphosate caused cancer, pretending that glyphosate was as “safe as salt.”

“This jury found Monsanto acted with malice and oppression because they knew what they were doing was wrong and doing it with reckless disregard for human life,” said Robert F. Kennedy Jr., founder of the World Mercury Project. “This should send a strong message to the boardroom of Monsanto.”

Vaccine Corruption Exposed To Washington State Board of Health

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Bernadette Pajer, co-president of Informed Choice Washington, made the most exceptional presentation before the Washington State Board of Health regarding fully informed medical consent and choice, full-disclosure regarding vaccine science and ingredients, plus Big Pharma’s apparently illegal tactics that deprive citizens of their inherent and indisputable rights to self-determination regarding their health, their children’s health and vaccines/vaccinations.

Iranian, Kazakh Presidents Discuss Replacing Dollar-Based Trade with National Currencies

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev in a meeting in Kazakhstan on Sunday conferred on ways to increase economic cooperation, emphasizing the need for both countries to use national currencies for trade instead of dollar.

Tehran and Astana can take more effective steps on the path of development of bilateral relations by establishment of more brokering ties and using their national currencies," President Rouhani said during the meeting on the sidelines of leaders of Caspian Sea littoral states' summit in the Kazakh port city of Aqtau on Sunday.

He also underscored the necessity for strengthening banking relations between the two countries to further expand bilateral economic ties.

School groundsman, 46, with weeks to live, is awarded $289M by jury that found weedkiller Roundup DID give him lymphoma - and says cash will support his wife, who works two jobs, and children when he dies

Roundup does cause cancer, a jury has declared in an unprecedented trial into the health dangers of Monsanto's weedkiller.

After three days of deliberations, jurors on Friday sided with terminally-ill groundsman Dewayne Johnson, 46, who has just weeks to live, awarding him $250 million in punitive damages, plus nearly $40m in compensatory damages, bringing the total to $289m.

Specifically, in eight weeks of proceedings, the jury was left convinced that Monsanto's product caused Johnson's cancer.

Addressing a press conference on Friday evening, Johnson thanked his legal team, his wife, Araceli, and their two sons.

'It’s taken a lot of prayer, I’ve taken energy from a lot of people. I’m glad to be here to help. Hopefully this thing will start to get the attention it needs. This case is way bigger than me,' he said.

Monsanto owners call weed killer 'safe' after jury orders big payout

Monsanto's German owners insisted Saturday that the weed killer Roundup was "safe", rejecting a California jury's decision to order the chemical giant to pay nearly $290 million for failing to warn a dying groundskeeper that the product might cause cancer.

While observers predicted thousands of potential future claims against the company in the wake of Monsanto's defeat, Bayer -- which recently acquired the US giant -- said the California ruling went against scientific evidence.

"On the basis of scientific conclusions, the views of worldwide regulatory authorities and the decades-long practical experience with glyphosate use, Bayer is convinced that glyphosate is safe and does not cause cancer," the company said in a statement.

'They will f*ck up': Company involved in Flint water crisis bids to serve largest city in Africa

Activists are concerned that Veolia, the company linked with the Flint, Michigan water crisis, is on the shortlist to manage two-thirds of water system in Lagos, Nigeria, where many children die from water-borne diseases.
"I feel Veolia is a snake, and they slithered over to Lagos to try to increase their profit margins," Nayyirah Shariff, director at Flint Rising activist group, told BuzzFeed News. "They have a history of poisoning black communities in the US, and they should not be poisoning the largest African city on the continent."

The campaigner said she was "shocked and extremely angry" when she found out that the French-owned water management company is among the three bidders for the Adiyan II project in the Nigerian capital, Lagos, which is the seventh largest city in the world.

Monsanto “Taken To The Cleaners” In Jury Verdict Dwayne Johnson v. Monsanto

The Media Relations personnel of the law firm of Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman, PC emailed me at 6:20 PM Friday, August 10th, the verdict rendered by the jury in the 8-week trial whereby “the jury found unanimously that Monsanto’s glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer caused Mr. Johnson to develop NHL, and that Monsanto failed to warn of this severe health hazard. Importantly, the jury also found that Monsanto acted with malice, oppression or fraud and should be punished for its conduct.”...

Monsanto may soon face “FLOOD” of lawsuits from cancer victims of Roundup herbicide

Monsanto, the maker of the world’s most popular weed killer Roundup, could soon be facing an unrelenting flood of lawsuits from people who got cancer from their product.

On Tuesday, a federal judge decided to allow three expert witnesses to give their testimony pertaining to Roundup’s carcinogenicity. U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria ruled that the three experts could testify, and he even went so far as to say that their opinions were not “junk science.” The judge will be presiding over more than 400 of the lawsuits against Monsanto.

In his opinion, Chhabria wrote: “So long as an opinion is premised on reliable scientific principles, it should not be excluded by the trial judge; instead the weaknesses in an unpersuasive expert opinion can be exposed at trial, through cross-examination or testimony by opposing experts.”

First Monsanto-Roundup Cancer Trial Goes To Jury In San Francisco

In a historic first, a California Jury is now deliberating whether Monsanto's Roundup weed killer gave a school groundskeeper terminal cancer, after lawyers for both sides delivered their closing arguments on Tuesday.

Groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson is one of more than 5,000 plaintiffs across the United States who claim Monsanto’s glyphosate-containing herbicides, including the widely-used Roundup, cause cancer. His case, the first to go to trial, began in San Francisco’s Superior Court of California four weeks ago. -Reuters

On Tuesday, Johnson's attorney Brent Wisner urged jurors to hold Monsanto liable and slap them with a verdict that would "actually change the world" - after arguing that Monsanto knew about glyphosate's risks of cancer, but decided to ignore and bury the information.

Roundup is accused of causing cancer in America and is being banned across Europe: So could Britain's most popular garden spray be killing more than your weeds?

We eat it in our food and spray it on our gardens and allotments. It is all over our parks and farmers’ crops.

Roundup is the UK’s most widely used weedkiller and globally the most popular in history.

When the U.S. company Monsanto launched the product in 1974, its marketing men proclaimed it to be a technological breakthrough that killed almost every weed without harming humans or the environment.

But since the Nineties, the safety of Roundup — and its active ingredient glyphosate — has been challenged by studies that suggest that the weedkiller is linked to serious conditions including liver and kidney disease, infertility, birth abnormalities and cancer.

French Oncologist Analysis of Gardasil Vaccine Finds Higher Rates of Cervical Cancer Associated with High Vaccination Rates

A medical doctor in France, Dr. Gérard Delépine, an oncologist, has published an analysis of the HPV vaccine Gardasil on the independent news site, Agora Vox, showing how increased rates of Gardasil vaccinations are actually correlated with a higher rate of cervical cancer.

The analysis was published as an Open letter to parliamentarians, and to all citizens in response to a recent meeting between French President Emmanuel Macron and “thirty leaders of the world’s largest pharmaceutical groups,” and to the call among some politicians to make the HPV vaccine Gardasil mandatory in France.

Pointing out that Gardasil only targets 2 to 5% of the 200 known strains of the human papillomavirus, Dr. Delépine explains that there is no evidence that Gardasil protects against cancer.

Instead of reducing the risk of invasive cancer of the cervix, HPV vaccines keep it at a high level or increase it!

FACEBOOK TO BANKS: GIVE US OUR USERS' FINANCIAL DATA AND WE'LL LET THEM BANK WITH FACEBOOK

Facebook wants to "deepen user engagement" with Messenger, and to that end, it's been pitching America's giant banks on joint enterprises where Facebook will get to see all your financial info (especially info on where you're shopping and what you're buying) to help it suck you into using Messenger for longer.

In return, Facebook offered to let the banks do business through its platform, allowing Facebook users to transact business and manage their finance through Facebook Messenger.

However, it promised the banks that the financial data they turned over wouldn't be shared with third parties.

The news that Facebook might be able to access all this financial data resulted in a massive share-price surge, with shares up 3.5%, recovering much of the ground lost during Facebook's share-price bloodbath last month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering how horrendous a track record they have regarding transparency and privacy, were my bank to start doing this, I would be obliged to cancel my services from them, and start from scratch.

Most Americans don’t eat real food anymore; they consume cheap, lab-concocted, genetically modified, junk-science food-like “stuff”

Processing American food began after World War II, when we started canning produce and adding preservatives and additives. In 1950, scientists figured out that adding antibiotics to animal feed increased the livestock’s growth rate. Then, in the early 1980s, the U.S. began extensively using hormones for livestock, and genetically engineering crops to contain bug-killer and weed-killer DNA. Artificial sweeteners became popular that decade also, when super-models featured the tall-skinny-no-figure look. Next, add in some industrial-based artificial food coloring, high fructose corn syrup, chemically-conditioned gluten, and glyphosate-ridden wheat, and what have you got? A country full of sickly humans dying young from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s disease.

PayPal WARNING: Hackers are using a fake fraud prevention email to trick users into installing a dangerous computer virus, security experts warn

PayPal users should be on the lookout for a scam email designed to install malware on their computer, security experts have warned.

The malicious email is disguised to look like an official communication from PayPal, and even appears to be sent from the address 'service@paypal.com'.

Users who open the email, which is often sent with the subject line 'PayPal account warning', are prompted to open an attached Word document laced with malware.

The computer virus appears to only hit Windows machines, with Mac, iPhone and Android users unaffected by the virus — even if they open the fraudulent email.

It's unclear how many people have been targeted in the latest malware attack.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest has put together a list of the unhealthiest meals in America, known as the " Xtreme Eating " list. These highly calorific, artery-clogging meals make a KFC family bucket look like child's play.

The list is collated by nutrition experts who reviewed menus at 200 restaurant chains in the United States to find the meals heaviest in calories, saturated fat, sodium, and sugar.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, the daily recommended intake is 2,000 calories, 20 grams of saturated fat, 2,300 milligrams of sodium, and 50 grams of added sugar.

Secret Documents Reveal Monsanto’s War on Cancer Scientists

On Tuesday, July 24, the Johnson vs. Monsanto trial resumed with video testimony from Monsanto’s toxicologist, Donna Farmer, who leads the chemical company’s deceptively named Product Safety Center, and who has been a lifelong nemesis of environmental, safe food and farming advocates.

It wasn’t easy getting Farmer’s videotaped testimony. Here’s the backstory. When our legal team sent a process server to Farmer’s home in St. Louis, to subpoena her testimony, Farmer was observed fleeing through a backyard fence. We had the block staked out and successfully served the summons.

But to spare her the risks of live testimony, Monsanto fought Farmer’s subpoena to a standoff in Missouri’s Supreme Court. Monsanto’s stonewalling meant that our San Francisco jury saw only clips of Farmer’s videotaped deposition taken by my colleague, Mike Miller of The Miller Firm.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s Article: Plaintiff Testifies in Landmark Monsanto Roundup Trial

On Monday morning, July 23, the jury in Johnson vs. Monsanto heard testimony from Dr. Ope Ofodile, the Plaintiff Dewayne "Lee" Johnson's dermatologist. Dr. Ofodile described beginning her treatment of Lee in 2014, shortly after Lee was diagnosed with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Her affection for Lee and her passionate devotion to his treatment was evidenced throughout her surprisingly moving testimony; she even wrote to Lee's employer, the Benicia District School Board, on Lee's behalf and "requested that he not be exposed to [Roundup] as that could exacerbate his condition."

An email from Lee to Dr. Ofodile after she performed surgery on his squamous cell carcinoma illustrated his affection for and gratitude toward her: "Thanks again for slicing me up and getting the poison out." Odofile responded, "Great, my pleasure."

Smartphones are killing teenagers' memories, study says

New research suggests that radiation from smartphones is negatively impacting teenagers' memories, leaving them with short-term memory loss. The concern is that a year's worth of radiation could be enough to damage the part of the brain that interprets images and shapes.

According to the study, which was published Monday, researchers found that there is a negative impact on memory performance after exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) radiation.

"This may suggest that indeed RF-EMF absorbed by the brain is responsible for the observed associations." said Martin Röösli, Head of Environmental Exposures and Health at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) in a statement, announcing the findings.

Vaccine scandal in China hits drug sector shares

A Chinese vaccine scandal intensified on Monday, sending ripples across the drug market and threatening Chinese ambitions to play a larger role in the global pharmaceutical arena.

Chinese police have launched an investigation into Changsheng Biotechnology, its chairwoman and four executives over suspected criminal behaviour, the official Xinhua news agency said on Monday.

Changsheng has been found to have falsified production documents related to a rabies vaccine that is given routinely to Chinese babies as young as three months, underscoring the challenge the drug market faces cleaning up its image as it aims to promote its vaccines globally.

According to the China Food and Drug Administration, Changsheng fabricated production records as well as product inspection records, and arbitrarily changed process parameters and equipment, in "serious violations" of the law.

Top 10 medical treatments that can make you SICKER than before you took them

What medical doctor has ever asked their patient at consultation whether they’re consuming genetically modified organisms (GMOs)? Why not? That refers to produce that contains chemical insecticides and chemical herbicides that can interact dangerously with chemical medications. What medical doctor analyzes the adverse affects of mixing mercury and formaldehyde with blood thinners or anxiety medications? Why not? Flu shots are often loaded with those toxic ingredients, and heavy metal toxins can certainly interfere with neurons in the brain and the central nervous system. Even the toxins in tap water can affect the central nervous system, so what happens when you wash down those anxiety medications with tap water, consume an artificial sweetener like aspartame, eat some food containing MSG, and then get a flu shot?

Notes of nuclear? Fukushima radioactivity found in California wine

Radioactive levels are increasing in wine from California's Napa Valley, thanks to the radioactive cloud that drifted from the Fukushima disaster in 2011.
Researchers from the University of Bordeaux Centre d'Études Nucléaires de Bordeaux-Gradignan (CNRS) in France tested California wine from before and after the Fukushima disaster and found there was double the amount of cesium-137 in its Cabernet Sauvignon after the 2011 tsunami caused the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors to leak.

The radioactive cloud released by the plant drifted all the way to California’s Napa Valley. There, trace amounts of cesium-137 made its way into the vineyard grapes.

The levels varied depending on the wine, researchers found, with Cabernet Sauvignon reds having a higher amount and rosé having the least.
