glyphosate vs roundup

Hello world!
noiembrie 26, 2016

I can point to 7 studies that fully complied with the OECD-453 (Combined Carcinogenicity and Chronic Toxicity) protocols (For review see Griem et al., 2015; Monsanto 1990, Cheminova 1993, Feinchemie Schwebda 1996, Arysta LS 1997, Syngenta 2001, Nufarm 2009). Yes, wearing the mask is a socially responsible thing to do because it will MINIMIZE transmission and is something we can all do. Even though the anti-biotech groups have had decades to perform a compliant study, we see nothing of the sort. I have no faith in our products any longer. In reference to your article concerning glyphosate causing cancer, after I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma about 2 years ago I began researching the causes of multiple myeloma. When green liberals fail to use facts to drive their agenda, it undermines our ability to actually do anything constructive, and we and our (unfounded) opinions become worse than the RU itself. Quite literally, everything can cause harm under the right conditions, and this is why we do not assess the acute and chronic toxicity to determine if something is safe; we assess it to show when something causes harm. This isn’t a joke, and simply reading over the materials and methods shows this. One Roundup product marketed in Europe is vinegar with no glyphosate, and some products contain both glyphosate and another herbicide. The current gold standards for this are the OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals (Section 400), and to date glyphosate has been assessed many, many times. Spray this in your face. After publication she was harassed and vilified by activists. Glyphosate is an aminophosphonic analogue of the natural amino acid glycine and, like all amino acids, exists in different ionic states depending on pH.Both the phosphonic acid and carboxylic acid moieties can be ionised and the amine group can be protonated and the substance exists as a series of zwitterions.Glyphosate is soluble in water to 12 g/l at room temperature. I have begun to select information sources that do this, because, as civilized humans, we ought to leave that behaviour in the school yard. The WORLD wide struggle should be your clue. And what are those numerical risk estimates? I have been told by nursery people that it’s so safe you could drink it. I did read some articles in the media at some stage that claimed that Roundup (= Glyphosate + Surfactant) was more of a health concern than Glyphosate alone. I only have 10-years of gardening experience but like so many people of my generation, I also have an increased sensitivity to certain chemicals and certain surfactants. …Did you actualy read the Wang et al In general (without specific reference to Roundup), I found the odds of a person getting multiple myeloma range from 1/132 to 1/161. So many people here say “I don’t need science to tell me that…xyz is bad.” Science is how we got to our ultra-comfortable lifestyle…science is how we got out long life. Court vs Science. Answer why their factory employees must wear PPE equipment but it doesn’t say to on the bottles? You do not know who is carrying it. What a wonderful time to tell those who are unaware of this ingredient. People the think Monsanto is the villain really don’t understand farming. Hi David, I really do get a good laugh at snow flakes “I will be unsubscribing”. You left out the data that farmers suffer elevated rates of non hodgkins lymphoma. Our scientific instruments are so good these days that we can find just about any chemical in water and milk. KILLS EVERYTHING,just like I wanted. Thank you so much Mr. Pavlis! These were conducted by industry, academic, and government groups in the US, UK, Italy, Poland, India, and Japan. Great article. They have no evidence of the untruths they believe in and have no intension of facing reality. Care 5o guess how many studies that meet the standards in toxicology to test for causal effects have shown harm below this point, let alone the ADI, which is 1mg/kg/day in the US and Canada? The one that youted the 41% increase in NHL that made waves among the anti-biotech community, but when it hit the scientific community, barely made a ripple. Potting Up – Which Pot Size is Correct for Potting On? Over the last 45 years there have been thousands of studies by labs all around the world. Many of these claims have been made by Samsel and Seneff. Go and look at the sterile “countryside” outside your garden. Glyphosate targets a broad range of weeds and is important in the production of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and glyphosate-resistant field crops such as corn and soybean. To suggest that the science is clear on this matter is negligent, and makes your piece come across as propaganda rather than “busing myths”. We always use 5oz per 2 gallon with 4oz ammoniumm sulphate (21-0-0). Robert you have either been bought or are brainwashed or both. Should You Compost Dog Waste or Cat Waste? What is Glyphosate? Roundup (a trade name used by Monsanto) and other herbicides based on glyphosate (its generic name) are some of the most commonly applied weed killers in use today in the U.S. Chickweed, yellow wood sorrel, and purslane also plants that are edible...and considered common lawn weeds. Look that one up once. In the face of lack of science literacy, we are left with lore and the stories we tell ourselves to try to make sense of the universe, to look for culprits to blame when things don’t go right for us. I am having a difficult time finding these facts you speak of regarding Cuba’s use of pesticides. Thanks Robert. It may also result in Glyphosate being better absorbed by us. With out chemicals the number of farmers that are out there making food. Cause chemicals are a product that is made to destroy for whatever reason it’s made and if breath in or gotten on the skin only those who experience the use of these chemicals knows how dangerous it is to themselves after they get sick! Is Compostable Plastic Really Compostable? Alas this doesn’t happen because hubris also sets in. I believe there are a few stories and obituaries as well. 3) I make no money on writing these posts, except that you might buy one of my books. Dr. Seneff is a computer programmer with no experience in chemistry, plant science or health science. The choice should always be according to the person, and it seems wrong that others would suffer from those choices. But PPE or not, on an industrial level it makes no sense that everyone has to switch to a GMO soy because some farmers want Roundup ready soy. If you hate Monsanto – that is fine. We’ve been using soap for millennia because it performs this very task, and you’d get the same results if you swapped out RoundUp with Dawn dish soap. You can’t blame that on Roundup. Just the track record of Monsanto makes me hate them for their crimes against humanity. The farmers need to use roundup to make a living. Glyphosate vs RoundUp. There’s a depressing amount of willful ignorance and scientific illiteracy in this comment thread…. Your statement is completely false – You simply can’t get poisoned this way.

This has been studied thousands of times and there is no such evidence. Whirlpool Enthusiast reference: The degree of filtration will be determined by: the material your mask is made of, how clean you keep it, how well it fits your face, how well you avoid touching its outer surface (where “germs” will accumulate), and how much you are exposed to other people. The European Union prohibits the use of herbicides containing glyphosate on the grounds that it is an environmental hazard. and think that is the whole truth. The emails make no indication that any of the toxicity or carcinogenicity testing to date is in error, or has been manipulated. I suppose the 20 + global organizations that agree with my analysis have also been bought and brainwashed? This gives enough pause that even scientists should ask themselves “do I really know enough about these things beyond a shadow of doubt?”. They do nothing but propose hypotheses and then never test them experimentally to see if they can be validated. There just so many different views. This problem goes so much deeper than just Glyophosphate! As Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist Richard Feynman famously said, “It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If you had experienced chemical sensitivities yourself then I suspect you would take a more cautious view also. The study did not reach any conclusions about glyphosates effect on our health, even though the news reported it with sensational headlines. Roundup has been paying for fake research for decades, if it’s so safe take drink. Two days later, those weeds are dead. Who paid you to write this? I was trained to use protective gear, and taught the proper use of chemical application. Don’t let the dummies get you down. Monsanto is funding scientists but we need the truth. Generally, I have been cautious about exposure to the herbicide. So how do you feel about Roundup ready soy? I have learned that unless you have the cash to lay out for a commercial type riding lawn mower (weed eaters more so) you will end up with a $1500 piece of crap and that no amount of maintenence will stop the constant aggravation and cost of keeping a mower deck operating ( somebody has to make those yacht payments ) But it's no longer me.

I find it so frustrating when people hear only a headline (usually a false one!) The general public is more convinced than ever that glyphosate (Roundup) causes cancer because of the recent court cases. Thanks for noticing the math error. Everyone who has ever used them would say no. Roundup is a brand-name herbicide that contains the active ingredient glyphosate. Depending on the succession of plants you want to grow, it is counterproductive to allow them to die off. I appreciate the topic and the comments. It kills weeds by blocking essential amino acids necessary for the photosynthesis process. It kills your gut biome. Conversations that go something like this, “Roundup is toxic because I hate Monsanto” are illogical. Unfortunately, Monsanto (now Bayer) has decided that since this brand name is so well known, they could use it to promote other products, some of which don’t even contain glyphosate. In fact, when Europe banned the use of Roundup, many farmers returned to more toxic products, and people were fine with it, because they don’t understand. Thanks for article, especially knowing some of the responses it would generate. Yum. I do want to make one addition. Nobody is spraying Roundup on wild fields – it costs money. You Are Eating Poisonous Fruits & Vegetables Even If They’re Organic! This is something the general population does not understand. Some studies have looked at bee behavior after exposure to glyphosate, and have reported some learning disabilities in bees. How likely is that? Or maybe, I’ve looked at the scientific evidence, and came to a scientific conclusion, based on the facts available. By smashing all these together, they caused for there to be variability in the data sets. A study sprayed honeybees with a normal concentration of glyphosate and found no harm to the bees. But the plan truth is. Just be sure you are getting a product with at least 41% glyphosate when shopping for a weed killer deal. Could not grow enough to feed the world. Reality casts a very different light on this topic, and you might want to actually learn about how things work in toxicology, because you clearly have no clue, and an axe to grind in relation to Monsanto. In every case, they do not show any significant increase in negative health effects until the dose was far, far above the current limit…which makes sense as we used these studies to determine that limit in the first place. I think what you are doing to explore garden myths is amicable. Well water (and some city water) that has a fairly high mineral content should be conditioned with AMS BEFORE adding the Glycophos. This doesn’t mean that the is no data relating to its toxicity, as there have been multiple studies that fully complied with the OECD-Section 400 methods, with an overall LOAEL (Lowest Observed Adverse Effect Limit) of 175mg/kg/day (for review wee Griem et al. (2) I personally will not touch the stuff nor advocate its use, (a) out of an abundance of caution, (b) because I don’t want to pay for it; there are other methods available to the home gardener, and (c) because no study to my knowledge has looked at the effects of multiple agents when combined, even in the recommended dosages – for example, all of the additives in food may be safe at the levels prescribed individually, but what happens when they are mixed over time? In the last two years Bayer is getting their butts handed to them. Monsanto, an American agricultural chemical company, first sold the herbicide commercially in 1974. Unfortunately your article did not address the effects of Round Up on DNA. And I am not saying you are. ( Even worse than DDT and you should know how that played out.

No discussion of safety should ignore the long- and widely-discussed controversy over glyphosate’s toxicity to fish and humans. Int J Environ Res Public Health 2015 Feb: 12(2): 1548 – 1559. The funny part is that the authors themselves indicate that their findings are questionable. 1g/kg (w/v) is ridiculously high, and the authors evenake it a point to indicate that the exposure they used is extrely high, even when compared to provious studies. The supreme court in California has forced mass amounts of Monsanto emails to be submitted and it has been shown that some very bad corporate practices have been occurring to cover up data, and push the teleological thinking far towards their side.

The scientific research is available to show this article to be misinformation. For instance, one of the more comprehensive methods for determining chronic effects is OECD-453, a combined carcinogenicity and chronic toxicity study examining oral exposire. Ah, let me guess, Zhang et al., (2019), right? Quite the opposite in fact. One of the reasons glyphosate is so safe is that it only affects a well understood biochemical pathway called shikimate, which is found in plants but not animals. The shikimate pathway is found in some bacteria that live in our gut. I don’t think so and I welcome you to sip down a glass if that’s what you believe. Insect numbers have declined catastrophically in recent years in Europe and the US- this is due to several factors, but the ability of farmers to now exclude all plants except their crop is surely one of them.

It is turning out to be a fact (the science is emerging) that bird feeders are not actually good for birds…people HATE the idea of giving up those, even if it may mean birds do better. There's a lot of 'Junk Science' claiming glyphosate causes cancer: Not sure if any of you had experience with this product, but here goes. My opinion is that it’s not safe most people don’t even wear gloves or masks,my neighbour was using it all the time to kill weeds I even asked her why she didn’t wear a mask or gloves and she just said it’s just a weed killer, she was 39 and eventually died of aggressive stomach cancer they had to remove her stomach,I still think it was from using that hideous roundup it should be banned. Another difference in glyphosate products is whether a surfactant needs to be added to the spray solution or if the formulated glyphosate product has a built-in adjuvant package. Keeping in mind, the LOWER the number, the HIGHER the toxicity. However, this is only a useful number if we know our typical exposures. I read a bit of good news from Taiwan – the school curriculum now includes a subject to teach kids how to identify fake news, propaganda, myths and conspiracy theories. We as humans are part of a linked ecosystem dependent on each other and having private companies patenting life forms and spreading their products not only through you spraying something from a bottle but the accumulation in our water, soil, seeds and air. Now it is blamed for causing cancer. Here a summary of one of those studies. So much so that I have, and will continue to use it as a teaching example on how not design a study.

How about these super weeds that are becoming resistant to Round-Up? That means the result was an accumulation of the ideas and thoughts of the members of the jury. You mentioned the human microflora and the potential for interfering with the respiration of some of those organism. The anti-Roundup movement is quick to claim that there has not been enough testing, and that the existing testing was done by labs hired by Monsanto. RU is a product which helps us produce food on a massive scale to support 7 billion people! Two things: (1) There is a risk that stopping the use of glyphosate will lead to more toxic substances being used. I know is difficult to fathom the idea of so many organizations being bought to turn their faces away, but I believe it was done. Including the surfactant in the discussion was simply a way to move the goalposts.

Didn’t even have labels at that time. Weeds will grow back after several weeks or months in the same area. “”However, given the heterogeneity between the studies included, the numerical risk estimates should be interpreted with caution.”. Roundup contains several other ingredients, called inerts, that help increase the herbicide’s potency—and potentially its toxicity. The method and the results were published in two peer-reviewed articles. I am not going to argue in this on a scientific basis even though I am on the “there exists enough scientific study that gives enough doubt to keep the conversation going”. Additionally, the lack of transport in the plant means that any tissue that is not directly exposed with be unharmed. To date, not a single study that complies with the international standards in toxicolgoy to conclude any causal relationship exists between glyphosate exposure and any negative health effects at or below the current regulatory limit (ADI-1mg/kg/day in the US and Canada). Could you please provide some references for these claims? At some point you have to accept the results. Do Marigolds Stop Cabbage Worms – Is this Good Companion Planting? My gardener uses it and my concern was growing to the point I wanted him to stop. Thank you for your report. Studies have found glyphosate in drinking water and in mothers breast milk.
