Even though Monsanto has been ‘taken down’ via a buy-out by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the ‘legacy’ of its toxic herbicide, Roundup®, literally has become a chemical scourge upon human health, plus the environment by poisoning soil, ground water, insect pollinators and producing other adverse effects yet to be discovered.

(NaturalHealth365) What do you get when you take a 150+-year-old pharmaceutical powerhouse – Bayer – and allow it to take over a 117-year-old agrochemical company, Monsanto? For starters, how about a cool $40 billion in revenue for the unofficial president of the big pharma club?
This is exactly what happened last year when the drug company bought out Monsanto. But even money may not be enough to ease the minds of higher-ups at Bayer, because it turns out that people are pretty upset with Monsanto (and now Bayer) for being behind the cancer-causing weedkiller Roundup. Unfortunately, Bayer’s idea of damage control involves misleading the public.
(NaturalHealth365) It’s official – glyphosate, the active ingredient in the weed-killer Roundup, has been officially linked to cancer cell growth.
Last summer, a jury awarded $289 million to a school groundskeeper for Roundup’s role in his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma – and hundreds of lawsuits are ongoing. Now, research reveals a stunning – and dangerous – twist in the story of this toxic chemical: the “inactive” ingredients in Roundup are thousands of times more toxic than glyphosate itself.
Dr. Chris Exley is a Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry at Keele University and an Honorary Professor at the UHI Millennium Institute. He is a biologist with a PhD in the ecotoxicology of aluminum, and his research from 1984 until present has focused on an intriguing paradox: “How come the third most abundant element of the Earth’s crust (aluminum) is non-essential and largely inimical to life?” He goes on to explain how investigating this mystery has “required research in myriad fields from the basic inorganic chemistry of the reaction of aluminium and silicon to the potentially complex biological availability of aluminium in humans.” He also explains in his bio how he is “fascinated by the element silicon in relation to living things which, as the second most abundant element of the Earth’s crust, is also almost devoid of biological function. One possible function of silicon is to keep aluminium out of biology (biota) and this forms a large part of the research in our group. We are also interested in biological silicification.” (source)
The aviation industry hangs its hat on air travel being “the safest way to travel.” The truth, however, is that it has harbored a dark secret since its inception: it’s poisoning its passengers and crew due to deeply flawed aircraft design, de-prioritizing safety in favor of profit.
In flight, every crew member and passenger relies on an air supply. The assumption, of course, is that this air is filtered if not fresh. Perhaps you have sensed (and promptly dismissed) that there may be quality control issues around cabin air. The problem goes further than that, however, and astoundingly, this is not by accident but by design.
What’s more concerning is the fact that the industry has known about this completely preventable health hazard for at least 40 years, but no attempts have been made to filter this cocktail of hundreds of chemicals (including organophosphates in the same category as toxic nerve agents like Sarin) out of the cabin air before travelers are forced to breath them in. Nor has the root cause of the problem — unsafe aircraft design and the deprioritization of human safety — been effectively addressed.

The Monsanto corporation’s most notorious product has again been found guilty of causing a man’s cancer. Dealing another major blow to Bayer, who bought Monsanto in 2018, a San Francisco jury has unanimously ruled that Roundup and its primary ingredient glyphosate were the likely cause of a defendant’s cancer.
