Doctors Refuse To Test For Round-Up

by Tami Canal

Glyphosate, the chief component in Round-Up, is one of the most widely used pesticides in the United States. Studies point to its link in Parkinson's, infertility and many cancers as well as playing a major role in the decline of the bee population. As concerns mount about farming practices and biotech influence within the food supply there is a growing demand for answers.

The EPA recently raised the allowable amount of Monsanto's best selling glyphosate pesticides to a ridiculous level, one that is over 100,000 times the amount needed to induce breast cancer cell growth. In a statement, independent scientist Anthony Samsel and MIT's Stephanie Seneff conclude, "Negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests itself slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body. Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer's disease."

People across the country have requested urine testing to determine glyphosate exposure and doctors are telling them they cannot do it. They have asked independent labs to perform the tests and have been told no. Citizens of this country are being told they cannot have their own urine tested for the most widely used pesticide on the planet. This is especially alarming as glyphosate has been known to contaminate ground water which would affect even those that live in large cities away from rural areas.  Studies have also discovered traces of it in our blood and found that it even crosses the placental barrier to enter unborn fetuses.

Moms Across America, an organization among the non-GMO movement, has found an independent lab that is willing to test urine and water. Microbe Inotech Laboratories is a custom contract lab specializing in biochemical testing. They are offering supporters reduced rate tests through January 31st.

All over the country, a debate rages on as consumers stand up for food labeling and the right to know what’s in their food, whether it contains ingredients that have been genetically engineered, and the amount of toxic chemicals being ingested. The fight for human health has never been so urgent.
