YEA! Ring of Fire plans to go after Monsanto's Roundup big time in the next few weeks!

Mike Papantonio, America's best trial lawyer and Farron Cousins editor of the Trial Lawyers mag talk about health issues of glyphosate and Roundup. Cousins says it's almost as dangerous as DDT - just watered down a little.

If you put Roundup in your yard, within 30 minutes glyphosate is in your body. It's not just causing cancer - it's causing many other diseases - alzheimers, birth defects, breast cancer, colitius, heart disease, diabetes, ms, etc all linked through studies. "It's a chemical designed to kill living cells."

"EPA just an extension of Monsanto." Ring of Fire plans to be talking about this alot in the next few weeks because they say corporate media is not covering this.

Monsanto’s Roundup has been linked to a myriad of health issues ranging from cancers to neurological defects to infertility. Still, we’re pouring 100 million tons of this toxin into the environment every year. America’s Lawyer Mike Papantonio and Farron Cousins discuss the dangers that Monsanto is hiding from the public.

96. If you're pregnant, make sure to stay away from "pro oxidant" anything

even ones that many are commonly thoughtlessly exposed to

that's the two line executive summary.

Vaccines used to use a preservative called thimerosal, which contains mercury. Mercury is one of hundreds of pro oxidant substances which we're still exposed to, although there is growing recognition of how bad that is. They still have not DONE anything.

One of the largest sources of mercury in the environment is coal burning power plants. Also, dental restorations made with amalgam.

NAC - n-acetylcysteine is an amino acid that is basically a targeted food, it increases something called glutathione.

Glutathione is our body's first line of defense against pro-oxidant chemicals. If enough of it is there, nothing bad happens, if there is not enough there, then bad things happen.

This is a basic fact they should teach everybody in high school, seriously.

The mercury in thimerosal is not the same as what comes out of coal plants and is not the same as what's being discussed in the study you offered. I suggest you better educate yourself before trying to appear informed, and failing. Otherwise people are just going to write you off as another anti-vaxxer pushing complete nonsense they don't understand.

Ascorbic acid is a pro-oxidant.

I've already told you why your paper doesn't say what you think it says.

Meanwhile there's exactly zero causative link between Thermisol and autism. All anti-vax lunacy has managed to accomplish is the discontinuance of Thermisol which has caused many vaccines to be that much more expensive to developing nations who already have to ration limited supplies.

Sometimes ignorance and stupidity manages to kill people. Don't be that guy.

103. Thanks for your intelligent posts -Interesting to read more about NAC - I take it daily

NAC really gives me energy and helps with allergies big time. L'taurine is also good.

In September 1994, my whole neighborhood was poisoned by the Environmental Health Dept of the City of Abluquerque - spraying for mosquitos with some old Malathion they found in a shed when they ran out of pyrethroids. (Hard to believe, but that is what the workers told me.) This was just the topping as my neighborhood block had been sprayed on summer nights for yrs because we were up against the ditch and river.

Due to incompetence, they sprayed Malathion 4 nights in a row - around 3 am without notice. I actually called Monsanto and was told they never even spray that often in the jungle. Many of the kids got asthma - many are my Facebook friends and still have asthma to this day and I got Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. This left me very sensitive to pesticides, chemicals, etc. I'm about 90 percent better as I moved way out to the country - clean air, no farming, no traffic, no businesses, neighbors far away.

Malathion like glyphosate is an organophosphate . My symptoms were extreme salavation (which still happens if I am exposed to a pesticide/herbicide - but now it will end in a day or so- not be continual) , bronchospasm, muscle tremors - esp at night in bed, and muscle weakness where my legs would just give out sometimes.

Organophosphate Poisoning

The organophosphate (OP) pesticides inhibit acetylcholinesterase. Hence, acetylcholine accumulates at nerve synapses and neuromuscular junctions, stimulating muscarinic and nicotinic receptors and the central nervous system.

They are used as pesticides but can also be used as 'nerve gas'. This is prohibited under the Geneva Convention but could be used by terrorists or rogue regimes. There is some suggestion that the use of OP pesticides may have caused some neurotoxicity and be responsible for 'Gulf War syndrome'. Certainly, insecticides were freely used, as were many other chemicals. The syndrome is inconsistent in those affected but is neither simply a post-traumatic stress disorder nor the result of acute OP poisoning and is likely to represent low-level chronic toxicity. This is supported by a case control study which reported that chronic exposure to OP pesticides can lead both to depressive and anxiety disorders and also to cognitive defects (unrelated to psychiatric disorders). This is a significant problem which may also affect children and further research in this field is necessary.


Presentation

The presentation of OP poisoning depends upon whether the poisoning is mild, moderate or severe. The symptoms are basically those of excessive acetylcholine activity.
Mild

Small or pinpoint pupils.
Painful, blurred vision.
Runny nose and eyes.
Excess saliva.
Eyes looking 'glassy'.
Headache.
Nausea.
Mild muscle weakness.
Localised muscle twitching.
Mild agitation.

Moderate

Pinpoint pupils, conjunctival injection.
Dizziness, disorientation.
Coughing, wheezing, sneezing.
Drooling, excess phlegm, bronchorrhoea, bronchospasm.
Breathing difficulty.
Marked muscle twitching or tremors.
Muscle weakness, fatigue.
Vomiting, diarrhoea, urination.

Severe

Pinpoint pupils.
Confusion and agitation.
Convulsions.
Copious excess secretions.
Cardiac arrhythmias.
Collapse, respiratory depression or respiratory arrest.
Coma.
Death

104. Actually, the Vaccine Injury Compensation program has paid out over 3 billion for vaccine injury

The majority kids do well with vaccines, but a small percentage don't so there is a Vaccine Injury Compensation Program run by the US Dept of Health and Human Services.

In very rare cases, a vaccine can cause a serious problem, such as a severe allergic reaction. In these instances, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) may provide financial compensation to individuals who file a petition and are found to have been injured by a VICP-covered vaccine. Even in cases in which such a finding is not made, petitioners may receive compensation through a settlement.

5. The world is awash in glyphosate - most heavily used chemical in history of the world

I doubt it HuckleB - get with the revolution - people are demanding clean food. It's a glyphosate epidemic!! Glyphosate Spreading like a cancer and it's in your bodies folks and mega time in animal food too - I even switched by pets to grain free organic food because of the super high levels of glyphosate on wheat and grains.

The world is awash in glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, produced by Monsanto. It has now become the most heavily-used agricultural chemical in the history of the world, and many argue that’s a problem, since the substance comes with concerning albeit incompletely-determined health effects.

A study published Tuesday in the journal Environmental Sciences Europe reveals that Americans have applied 1.8 million tons of glyphosate since its introduction in 1974. Worldwide, 9.4 million tons of the chemical have been sprayed onto fields. For comparison, that’s equivalent to the weight of water in more than 2,300 Olympic-size swimming pools. It’s also enough to spray nearly half a pound of Roundup on every cultivated acre of land in the world.

Freese adds that EPA's high-end estimate of infant exposure to glyphosate exceeds the level the Agency considered safe for them in 1983.

The rise of glyphosate-resistant weeds has led to the use of yet more herbicides. And companies like Dow AgroSciences are developing crops that are resistant to even more herbicides, such as 2,4-D. But this will just lead to spraying of even more


herbicides, more resistance in the future and the need for more herbicide-resistant crops in the future, Mortensen says. It’s a vicious cycle.

“This is what you call a transgenic treadmill, using ever more herbicides and selecting for greater and greater resistance in weeds, and we are already seeing this happen,” Freese says.

8. So you think DDT will come back if we eliminate glyphosate?

It's getting ever sicker guys! Dow has a new herbicide DUO - glyphosate plus 2,4-d (half of the agent orange formula).
Seems like glyphosate is no longer working that good alone - it needs a duo of toxins.

Agent Orange—or Herbicide Orange (HO)—is one of the herbicides and defoliants used by the U.S. military as part of its herbicidal warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971. It was a mixture of equal parts of two herbicides, 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D.
from WIKI

What kind of a site is "The Credible Hunk" ??

Organic farming works - look at Cuba - and now Russia is going there. Russia wants to be the world's producer of clean food. Where does that leave us? Do you think countries will pick GMO , glyphosate, agent orange US food over clean food? How many countries have already rejected our GMO food?

10. It's is sad that you are on a progressive site quoting articles by GMO shills & right wing mags

Forbes is a right leaning magazine run by a republican - of course, they will be for GMO's and your author Steve Savage - a Dupont guy.

STEVE SAVAGE, GMO SHILL DEBUNKED: One of the most widely published opponents of fair labeling (Prop. 37 and I 522) is Stanford graduate Steve Savage. Steve is comfortably retired from DuPont. DuPont contributed $4 million to oppose the passage of California Proposition 37, which would mandate the disclosure of genetically modified crops used in the production of California food products. Steve shills convincingly for the chemical industry and their pals in bioengineering. His latest project, as you would expect, is to cheerlead for the Arctic Apple. Let's get a jump on this, since it's almost too late and we're about to be screwed again. In 2009, Steve's Greenwash was exposed by Corporate Crime Daily:
"It’s interesting that Steve Savage boasts of his work on natural, biological pesticides while at DuPont and Mycogen. Those companies were among the leaders in bringing GMO “Bt” crops to market, despite concerns raised by scientists, environmentalists and organic growers who noted that the Bt crops threaten to destroy the usefulness of Bt sprays, valued by many as the world’s safest and most important biological pesticide. It’s curious that while Savage was purportedly working on biological pesticides, his colleagues were working to destroy the safest one known.
Savage also says that GMO Bt crops couldn’t present an allergy risk because they contain the same gene found and long-used in Bt sprays. But the version in GMO crops is not the same as in sprays; in crops it is an activated, high-dose (truncated) toxin." read more http://ur1.ca/g49f5

13. It is sad that you can't discuss the actual science and reality of the issues.

And yet you attack me because I am a true progressive who goes with evidence over false belief. Also, the fact that you fail to realize that there are many POVs posted on Forbes, shows that you do not care about basic intellectual honesty, but would rather go with lame character assassination.

Prove the content of the piece to be wrong. You can't, and that's the real problem with folks like you being on a progressive site. You claim to be progressives, but you don't really care to do the actual work it takes to be a progressive.

Remember, that I could have pointed out that your author has posted plenty of ridiculous anti-science, anti-GMO nonsense over the years, and that his web site is linked with a known anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist, but I didn't. Well, since you want to play that ugly game, now I did. So cut the crap.

Meanwhile, evidence demonstrating that Roundup® is carcinogenic continues to pile up. David Schubert, who runs the cellular neurobiology lab at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, recently issued the following statement:

There are a number of independent, published manuscripts that clearly indicate that glyphosate … can promote cancer and tumor growth…it should be banned.

78. Untrue - There is no way you could be a progressive and not LOVE Mike Papantonio

I have to use the word you always use - against my better judgment - DURP. I really am not into name calling - but just this one time.





Mike Pap 4James Michael Papantonio, popularly known as Mike Papantonio, is an American attorney and radio talk show host. He is past president of The National Trial Lawyers, the most prestigious trial lawyer association in America; and is one of few living attorneys inducted into the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame.

Papantonio co-hosts Ring of Fire Radio, a nationally syndicated weekly radio program, with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Sam Seder, where he is referenced as “America’s Lawyer.” He graduated from the University of Florida and received his J.D. from Cumberland School of Law. He was admitted to The Florida Bar in 1982. He is a senior partner in the Pensacola, Florida-based Levin Papantonio Law Firm, a leading national mass torts firm.

Papantonio is noted for his success in mass torts, product liability, personal injury, and wrongful death cases, and has returned numerous jury verdicts of multi-million dollar damages for injured persons. He is a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer by the Florida Bar and the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He is a fellow in the International Academy of Trial Lawyers and the International Society of Barristers. He is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates; the American Association for Justice; the Southern Trial Lawyers Association; and the Florida Justice Association, where he served on the Board of Directors for five years.

Papantonio has been listed in the publication Best Lawyers in America since 1999, and has written several books, including Resurrecting Aesop: Fables Lawyers Should Remember; Clarence Darrow, the Journeyman; and In Search of Atticus Finch, A Motivational Book for Lawyers, as well as Defenses You Can Count on in an Asbestosis Case and How to Prove a Sick Building Case. He also co-authored Closing Arguments–The Last Battle with Fred Levin.

Papantonio says he wrote In Search of Atticus Finch as a “wake-up call to the legal profession that has largely lost its moral compass” and has said that “seventy percent of kids coming out of law school want to represent corporations and get paid exorbitant amounts of money.” “They’re willing to sell their souls to the highest bidder. We need to bring more quality to what we do as lawyers, we need to be better servants to the community and we need to have more political involvement for positive change in the country.”

32. Organic uses a lot of pyrethins - which unlike organochloride pesticides - break down within hrs

Organic cannot use pyrethins with PBO (piperonyl butoxide) - but if you go into any store it is hard to find pyrethins without this chemical - So never spray Pyrethins with PBO on your garden vegetables. The inerts are often worse than the pesticides.

The rectal route of administration is viable for a great many drugs.
Water soluble drugs can be easily administered by this route (see further in this wiki).
Drugs that are only soluble in oil (like cannabis) need more preparation, but can effectively administered via this route after extraction into a suitable medium, or in suppository form.

Yet this doesn't seem to be a deterrent.

♦ Soybeans
The USDA GIPSA laboratory in Kansas City, MO, analyzed 300 soybean samples for 93 parent pesticides, metabolites, degradates, and/or isomers, plus 5 environmental contaminants. Soybean samples were stored at room temperature until time of grinding. Five hundred grams (500 g) of sample were ground thoroughly and tumbled to achieve a homogenous mixture. Extraction of soybean samples was accomplished using an acetonitrile-water solvent extraction and SPE cleanup and analyzed by LC-MS/MS.

The GIPSA laboratory shipped portions of each ground soybean sample to the Colorado laboratory for specialty analysis of glyphosate and its aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) metabolite. Samples were extracted using a method specifi cally
developed for the analysis of glyphosate and AMPA, with residue determinations performed via LC-MS/MS.

42. FDA moving toward testing glyphosate for the 1st time in agency's history

Not testing glyphosate yet - but moving forward. Forced to test by the US GAO.

FDA officials dubbed the issue “sensitive” and declined to provide details of the plans, but FDA spokeswoman Lauren Sucher said the agency was moving forward to test for glyphosate for the first time in the agency’s history.

“The agency is now considering assignments for Fiscal Year 2016 to measure glyphosate in soybeans, corn, milk, and eggs, among other potential foods,” she told Civil Eats. Soybeans and corn are common ingredients in an array of food products and genetically engineered (or GMO) varieties are commonly sprayed with glyphosate.

That really protects the public!

But while the USDA looks for residues of other herbicides, as well as fungicides and insecticides, the agency routinely does not test for glyphosate. It did one “special project” in 2011, testing 300 soybean samples for glyphosate and found that 271 of the samples had residues. The agency said all fell within the range deemed safe by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The agency has said testing for glyphosate is “not a high priority.”

The kinds of cancer we expect to increase the most are—

Melanoma (the deadliest kind of skin cancer) in white men and women.
Prostate, kidney, liver, and bladder cancers in men.
Lung, breast, uterine, and thyroid cancers in women.

We'll ALSO have to return all the land that used to be farmland and is now used for housing to farmland - because non-chemical agriculture takes far more land than chemical agriculture does. You want to be the one to tell my parents (whose house is on a retired strawberry farm) they have to move?

38. As if that makes their case any less hopeless

The conclusions of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), following the peer review of the initial risk assessments carried out by the competent authority of the rapporteur Member State Germany, for the pesticide active substance glyphosate are reported. The context of the peer review was that required by Commission Regulation (EU) No 1141/2010 as amended by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 380/2013. The conclusions were reached on the basis of the evaluation of the representative uses of glyphosate as a herbicide on emerged annual, perennial and biennial weeds in all crops [crops including but not restricted to root and tuber vegetables, bulb vegetables, stem vegetables, field vegetables (fruiting vegetables, brassica vegetables, leaf vegetables and fresh herbs, legume vegetables), pulses, oil seeds, potatoes, cereals, and sugar- and fodder beet; orchard crops and vine, before planting fruit crops, ornamentals, trees, nursery plants etc.] and foliar spraying for desiccation in cereals and oilseeds (pre-harvest). The reliable endpoints, concluded as being appropriate for use in regulatory risk assessment and derived from the available studies and literature in the dossier peer reviewed, are presented. Missing information identified as being required by the regulatory framework is listed. Concerns are identified. Following a second mandate from the European Commission to consider the findings from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) regarding the potential carcinogenicity of glyphosate or glyphosate-containing plant protection products in the on-going peer review of the active substance, EFSA concluded that glyphosate is unlikely to pose a carcinogenic hazard to humans and the evidence does not support classification with regard to its carcinogenic potential according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.

The IARC's minority opinion, even within the WHO, has been rejected by a very wide consensus of the scientific community, but you already knew that. Even if someone, you know like a tort lawyer whose makes his money suing people with money, were to actually put any stock in an opinion that nobody else authoritative this side of Bizzaro World does, the claim that "probable" somehow magically turns into "definite" is worth about as much as a bucket of warm spit in a court of law, but he already knows that.

I'm sure these "new studies" will be quite enlightening seeing as how there's only more than 40 years and hundreds of them already, none of which that are remotely credible suggest anything in the same ballpark as what the IARC is suggesting. One of the studies the IARC referenced as evidence even showed a negative risk, which means glyphosate exposure may actually keep you from getting cancer.

The EPA will soon be coming out with their final determination on the subject which will undoubtedly be the same as the EFSA and the rest of the WHO, which is to say the IARC is quite full of shit. But I'm sure you'll just ignore that one as well just like you ignore every other piece of relevant information that doesn't support the beloved cause of chemophobia.

Meanwhile the IARC, unlike many of the other organizations mentioned does NOT perform risk assessments, only hazard assessments. What does this mean? It means the IARC doesn't consider whether a given substance has a 1 in gazzillion chance of causing cancer or a 1 in 10 chance of causing cancer, nor do they evaluate whether or not a given substance actually is increasing the number of cancer cases. In other words, all they are doing is establishing a baseline for all those other organizations for risk assessment, and the overwhelming consensus is there's exactly zero observed risk of cancer from glyphosate under anything remotely approaching real world conditions.

So certainly to climate science deniers and other assorted cranks, scientific consensus and practical reality doesn't matter, YMMV.

Our idiotic neighbor sprayed this toxin all over an area of her yard that adjoins ours and is a major pass-through.

When I saw what she was doing I politely asked if she had heard that the WHO recently classed Roundup as a probable carcinogen. She asked how can it do that and I said it's absorbed through our skin and lungs. Her reply? "We all have to die sometime."

Ugh. I asked her to please keep it as far away from the property line as possible and immediately closed the door. This was last week. Yesterday I saw her outside pulling the dead weeds out. Can anybody please tell me why a person would pay money for a weed killer (a known carcinogen, no less), spend time spraying it and then pull the weeds anyway??

27. Don't walk where she sprayed or you can track it into your house & it stays on rugs

If it doesn't get sun, it has longer half life - making it dangerous to babies and pets.. Almost all rugs have pesticides tracked from outside - see study below..


From WIKI :The half-life of glyphosate in soil ranges between 2 and 197 days; a typical field half-life of 47 days has been suggested. Soil and climate conditions affect glyphosate's persistence in soil. The median half-life of glyphosate in water varies from a few to 91 days.

Distribution of pesticide residues within homes in central New York State.
Obendorf SK1, Lemley AT, Hedge A, Kline AA, Tan K, Dokuchayeva T.


Residues for 17 pesticides were analyzed in 41 households in central New York State that represented farm, rural, and urban houses. Samples were taken in both summer and winter of 2000-2001 from the same households from four locations; family room carpet; adjacent smooth floor; flat tabletop surface; and settled dust collected in a Petri dish on a tabletop. Pesticide residues were analyzed to identity factors that influence both the transport into and the redistribution of pesticides in the indoor environment. Differences were observed between the various pesticides and pesticide classifications relative to location within and between households as well as by season. Variations in the pesticide residues were related to a number of factors. Higher residues were observed in the farm households, particularly in summer, with the highest amount observed for chloropyrifos in carpet (33 microg/m2). For many pesticides, the frequency of detection and the amount of residues were higher in summer, which relates to usage patterns in agriculture and horticulture; however, larger amounts of insecticides such as mecoprop, resmethrin, and tetramethrin were found on flat surfaces in winter, indicating household use and possible redistribution within the home. Distribution patterns suggest that routines within a household may cause high variation in residues; these practices include indoor pets and treatment for fleas and ticks, use of termiticides, and fastidiousness of occupants. Frequency of pesticide detection was highest in carpet for both summer and winter for all households, indicating that carpets hold pesticides over time. Adsorbent fibrous materials such as textiles hold pesticides by macro- and micro-occlusion in their complex structures. Amounts of pesticide residue were higher in carpets than on smooth floors, particularly for rural farm households where the farmer was a certified pesticide applicator. The maximum amount of pesticide residue on a smooth floor surface was 13.6 microg/m2 malathion while the maxima on wiped surfaces and in settled dust were 1.8 microg/m2 2, 4 D and 3 microg/m2 pendimethalin, respectively. Physical properties of individual pesticides such as vapor pressure influenced the distribution of the pesticide within the households. Evidence of volatilization of pesticides and redeposition on surfaces was observed, indicating that this is a mechanism for contamination of surfaces in addition to adsorption on airborne particles and tracking. High residues in winter are evidence that closure of households in winter that reduces ventilation results in redistribution of pesticides within households.

50. Extreme overexaggeration is never the way to win my heart

According to http://enveurope.springeropen.com/articles/10.1186/s12302-016-0070-0, roughly 8.6 billion kilograms (about 4 million tons) of glyphosate have been applied worldwide since 1974. They believe three-quarters of that have been sprayed in the last ten years, so 300,000 tons of glyphosate have been put down per year.

300,000 tons is a far cry from "100 million tons."

That alone should tell you all you need to know.

Leave it to a trial lawyer not to tell the whole truth. 3 out of 4 WHO agencies that have commented on glyphosate are on record saying it does not present a cancer or human health risk. Yet he represents a minority opinion within the WHO as the only one. Not to mention the EU agency that actually regulates pesticides has specifically said in a peer reviewed study that the IARC was in error, but you won't hear that from the OP or that source. Instead the poster just pretends that doesn't exist.

Like all serious producers we irrigate and if we were to skip the chemicals, go organic, we would be wasting huge amounts of precious water because the yields would be so low and the stand full of weeds.

Round Up is very mild and only kills the weeds it touches. We can spray out an old crop and reseed right away.

What is “pesticide drift,” and should I be worried about it?—Nicole Kehoe, Burlington, Vt.

"If you live near a big farm or an otherwise frequently manicured landscape, “pesticide drift”—drifting spray and dust from pesticide applications—could be an issue for you and yours. Indeed, pesticide drift is an insidious threat to human health as well as to wildlife and ecosystems in and around agricultural and even residential areas where harsh chemicals are used to ward off pests. The biggest risk from pesticide drift is to those living, working or attending school near larger farms which employ elevated spraying equipment or crop duster planes to apply chemicals to crops and fields. Children are especially vulnerable to these airborne pesticides, given that their young bodies are still growing and developing."

141. Prove I've done it.

You can't, because I don't do it. This OP spreads misinformation, and that has been shown, and yet you support it. That's not ok.
