A group of U.S. government workers potentially exposed to unexplained phenomena in Cuba have less white matter in their brains and less connectivity in the areas that control vision and hearing than similar healthy people, doctors have found. The findings from University of Pennsylvania researchers are the most specific to date about the neurological condition of the U.S. diplomats, spies and their families who reported strange ...

New Tests Reveal 70% of Fruits and Veggies are Contaminated with Toxic Chemicals

New Tests Reveal 70% of Fruits and Veggies are Contaminated with Toxic Chemicals

Despite the false propaganda of pesticide and herbicide producers who claim agricultural chemicals disappear after being sprayed on crops, a new research project from the Environmental Working Group has found that 70% of U.S. fresh produce is contaminated with pesticide chemicals. All pesticide chemicals are toxic to life. Otherwise, they wouldn’t kill the living organisms that threaten crops. There is no such thing as a “non-toxic” ...

European MPs Peer-Reviewed Study Proves Overturn of Glyphosate in EU was Based on Monsanto Plagiarized Scientific Fraud Paper

European MPs Peer-Reviewed Study Proves Overturn of Glyphosate in EU was Based on Monsanto Plagiarized Scientific Fraud Paper

Controversy over glyphosate has reached an all-time high in the European Union (EU), after researchers accused the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) of plagiarizing a report supporting its safety. The plagiarized sections were largely lifted from a paper written by the pesticide industry, raising serious concerns about the legitimacy of the findings. The scandal asserts that the German risk assessment of glyphosate, the active ingredient ...

Study: Safety of Safety Evaluation of Pesticides (Dow Chemical Faked Safety Studies on Brain-Damaging Chlorpyrifos)

We’ve known for a while that Monsanto buried the truth about Roundup weedkiller by ignoring concerns by its own scientists. Now it seems Dow Chemical Co. has been using the same playbook. Dow (renamed DowDuPont after its 2017 merger with DuPont) likely knew for decades that its widely used chlorpyrifos insecticide is harmful to humans—especially children and developing fetuses. But the company hid that information from ...
