Alarming Levels of Monsanto’s Weedkiller Glyphosate Found in popular American foods!
A new report by Food Democracy Now! and the Detox Project,
“Glyphosate: Unsafe On Any Plate”, exposes shocking levels of glyphosate contamination in popular American foods, including Cheerios, Doritos, Oreos, Goldfish and Ritz crackers and Stacy’s Pita Chips.
New scientific evidence shows that probable harm to human health could begin at ultra-low levels of glyphosate e.g. 0.1 parts per billions (ppb). Popular foods tested for glyphosate measured between 289.47 ppb and at levels as high as 1,125.3 ppb.
The overuse of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide on our food is causing glyphosate toxicity and it is now being considered as the single most important factor in development of autism and other chronic disease. At a recent panel discussion about GMOs, a senior scientist has stated that one in two children will be autistic by 2025.
If you started your day with a bowl of oatmeal, Cheerios or even organic cage-free eggs, there’s a good chance you consumed a small amount of glyphosate residue along with it. Likewise, if you’ve recently snacked on popular brands of crackers, tortilla chips and pita chips, or consumed beer or wine, you have consumed glyphosate.
As the results of increasing numbers of independent tests come in, it’s becoming increasingly clear that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, is showing up virtually everywhere — in our food, water and even in baby food and women’s breastmilk.
It’s not altogether surprising — glyphosate is the most heavily-used agricultural chemical in history — but it is incredibly concerning. The health risks of glyphosate, though downplayed by the chemical’s makers, are accumulating daily.

We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact.
I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.
The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.
It Is Not Working!
These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.
The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences. (more…)
In an interview with Dr. Strand, he reveals why women tend to struggle with weight loss more than men.
He says that at certain points in our lives, we tip over into an abnormal metabolic state and all of a sudden we are not as sensitive to our own insulin anymore.
Insulin’s job is to get the food we eat (glucose) into our cells to be stored as energy (or fat).
When you become less sensitive to your own insulin, the body compensates by producing even more insulin and as your blood insulin levels rise, you can’t utilize calories normally anymore.
Those calories you used to utilize in the muscle as energy are now being diverted to the fat cells of the abdomen and you start putting on this tremendous amount of weight.
Insulin not only converts glucose (sugar) to fat but it also blocks the release of that fat.
This is the frustration many women are dealing with when it comes to struggling with weight loss. The key is getting your insulin levels under control.
You do this by eating the correct foods (like what is recommended on our weight loss program).
Once your insulin levels come down your fat burning hormone, glucagon will come up and you will be able to have effective weight loss.
Do you become more and more overwhelmed by the staggering dependence our society and medical community places on prescription medication and over-the-counter drugs? Our first thought when we become hurt or ill is to immediately turn to medication hoping for relief of our problem or symptoms.
Few of us, however, seriously consider the poor lifestyle habits that may be the underlying cause of the problem. Excessive weight alone may account for painful knees, painful hips, high blood pressure, diabetes, increases in reflux acid symptoms, and fatigue.
Smoking causes increased risks in high blood pressure, heart disease, emphysema, and lung cancer. Poor eating habits contribute to high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. Lack of physical activity can lead to osteoporosis, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, decreased immune function and high stress levels. When people come to the physician’s office for help after developing these problems, invariably they are placed on medication while little attention is given to the underlying lifestyle that may be the main culprit.
