GLYPHOSATE IN L.A. RIVER CAUSES CONTROVERSY, LAWMAKER RESPONDS | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


GLYPHOSATE IN L.A. RIVER CAUSES CONTROVERSY, LAWMAKER RESPONDS

Glyphosate poisoning of the L.A. river has become so bad and such a contentious issue that a congressman from the area has urged the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to stop using the weedkiller.

Over the last few years, the use of glyphosate to control weeds and other vegetation around the L.A. river has become controversial, with many concerned over the links to cancer, birth defects and reproductive issues.

The EPA claims that glyphosate is not carcinogenic but pretty much everyone else disagrees and it is likely that the EPA would approve agent orange for use as a fertilizer if Monsanto ramped up its lobbying efforts just a little more.

Representative Adam Schiff of Burbank wrote a letter to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers urging the agency to stop using glyphosate and look toward using safer alternatives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to wonder with what Monsanto bribed or threatened the decision-makers at the FDA with, to claim that "glyphosate is not carcinogenic."

I would like to invite everyone who believes that everything the FDA tells us is absolutely true, to look at the following article:

Scientist Attacked for Proving GMO Dangers Wins Defamation Suit in French Court

The article goes on to state:

"Remember Professor Giles-Eric Seralini and his research team at the University of Caan in France? They provided pictures of rats fed Monsanto GMO corn saturated with Roundup weed killer. That’s why the corn is genetically modified, to survive the most dangerous herbicide on the planet.

Their study discovered that rats fed GMOs developed tumors and died prematurely. But that wasn’t the purpose of their study. It was set up to examine the long term toxicity potential of eating Monsanto’s GMO corn along with the inherent exposure to Roundup."

Seralini and his team are among my pantheon of heroes from the Scientific Community, for having had the "male attributes" to continue with this study, and take it to its logical conclusion.

Of course, Monsanto attempted a "hit job" on Seralini's reseach and credibility
( read: character assassination by pressuring a respected medical journal to redact Seralini's research), he and his team came out vindicated.

And House Representative Schiff, even though I deplore your Trump-bashing in Congress, and the utter nonsense you have spewed with which to attempt to verbally assassinate this President, you are welcome to use this information in your dialogue with the Army Corps of Engineers.

I remember Burbank very fondly, and in THIS instance, believe you are doing the absolute right thing.
