Chlorpyrifos—described by some as “the most dangerous pesticide you’ve never heard of”—is an insect-killing organophosphate. Organophosphates trace their roots back to Nazi-era IG Farben nerve gases; contemporary scientists still describe the compounds as “junior-strength nerve agents” that have a mechanism of action comparable to sarin. Dow Chemical—the company that helped bring the world mustard gas during World War I and napalm and Agent Orange during the Vietnam war—is the manufacturer of chlorpyrifos-containing insecticides.
(NaturalHealth365) You rely on sunscreen to prevent skin damage, painful burns and to reduce the risk of skin cancer caused by overexposure to the sun. But, most people don’t realize that toxic sunscreen products contain chemicals – which cause more harm than good. And, the sunscreen industry would like you to remain uninformed about the health risks.

(Natural News) Decades ago, Australian farmers stopped using glyphosate and other herbicides to get rid of superweeds and seeds in their plots. Instead, they used natural methods of weed control and management that worked much better than toxic chemicals.
Farms in Western Australia raise wheat and barley as the main food crops. The biggest threat comes from ryegrass superweeds that developed resistance to excessively used herbicides.
(NaturalHealth365) Opting for locally sourced, whole foods is a critical step in taking care of your personal health. But, being concerned about what food goes into your mouth is only half the battle. You may be surprised to learn the personal care items you and your family are using – every day – are putting your health in jeopardy because of the toxic chemicals inside.
Stephanie Seneff, a PhD from MIT University, studies glyphosate, the active ingredient in the pervasive herbicide known as Roundup that’s made by Monsanto, the massive agrochemical giant that was recently purchased by Bayer pharmaceuticals. Dr. Seneff and many other scientists from around the world have published several papers outlining the very clear and very obvious dangers that glyphosate poses to human and environmental health. Not only do we have a wealth of data, but there are also numerous court cases (more than 10,000 pending) that have ruled in favour of the people, linking glyphosate with causing cancer. On top of that, we also have information showing the extreme corruption that exists within these corporations in conjunction with our federal health regulatory agencies that allow substances containing glyphosate to be on the market. This type of corruption is worldwide. For example, the substance was recently relicensed and approved by European Parliament. However, MEPs found the science given to them was plagiarized, full of industry science written by Monsanto.

(NaturalHealth365) It seems there’s no escaping glyphosate – the primary ingredient in Roundup, a weed killer manufacture by Monsanto. In 2017, the FDA raised alarm with a bombshell report acknowledging the presence of the pesticide in everyday foods such as breakfast cereals, honey and ice cream. Now, a new report from the California Public Interest Research Group (CalPIRG), reveals that glyphosate residue has also been found in a variety of common wines and beers sold in the United States – including those certified as organic.
