Residents of 18 European states have been tested positively to traces of glyphosate, a globally used weed killer, the study says. It remains unclear how the chemical used on Monsanto GMO corps got in people’s bodies.
It turns out that 44 per cent of volunteers had it in their urine, but it is yet unclear how the herbicide got into their systems.
“These results suggest we are being exposed to glyphosate in our everyday lives,” Adrian Bebb, spokesperson of environmental group Friends of the Earth (FoE) said in a statement.
The study, carried out between March and May 2013, showed that proportions of positive samples varies between countries, with Malta (90 per cent) , Germany (70 per cent), UK (70 per cent) and Poland being “the most positive samples” and Macedonia and Switzerland – “the lowest”.
“Our testing highlights a serious lack of action by public authorities across Europe and indicates that this weed killer is being widely overused,” the group said.
Glyphosate is essentially used on plants including grasses, sedges, broad-leaved weeds and woody plants as well as great variety of genetically modified crops. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, which is sprayed in large amounts on genetically engineered, so-called “Roundup Ready,” crops.
“It is crucial for growing genetically modified (GM) crops, many of which are modified to withstand glyphosate,” FoE said.
All volunteers, who provided their urine samples, are people from European cities; they had no contact with glyphosate or used products containing it in the run-up to the tests.
The company that’s been playing God with all of us is giving up its influence in Europe.
Monsanto epitomizes all that is evil in the world of Corporatocracy we are all in.
We should be aware that this company is everywhere.
It’s almost surreal, but it’s true. Monsanto has officially give up its fight to spread genetically modified seeds and plants throughout Europe.
In a time when the power and political influence of Monsanto Co. seems nearly insurmountable, this is a huge victory for opponents of genetic engineering. For those in the U.S. and other countries where Monsanto’s stranglehold is palpable, it serves as a rally cry to keep up the good fight.
“We’ve come to the conclusion that this has no broad acceptance at the moment,” Monsanto Germany spokeswoman, Ursula Lüttmer-Ouazane, told Taz, a Geman newspaper. According to Reuters, European officials for Monsanto also told Taz “that they were no longer doing any lobby work for cultivation in Europe and not seeking any new approvals for genetically modified plants.”
Just as in the United States, millions of European citizens have spoken out against Monsanto’s unchecked control of agriculture through the use of patented, genetically-modified seeds and plants.
A recent poll in Europe found that 60% of respondents considered “Frankencrops” a threat to public health. In 2007, the United States launched a planned retaliation against European countries for refusing to take GMOs into their food chains. In 2009 Monsanto sued Germany because it banned these products, reported FarmtoConsumer.org in late 2012.
Vermont seemed more likely than ever to become the first US state to mandate the labeling of genetically modified food (GMO) after a bill passed the state house, though legislators worry about a lawsuit threat from biotech giant Monsanto.
Similar bills seeking to provide consumers with labels at the grocery store that highlight what products contain GMOs have recently failed. In California, a ballot initiative which bypassed Congress after receiving 850,000 signatures was defeated in 2012 after a large consortium of biotech companies including Monsanto spent some $50 million on an ad blitz against the legislation.
As RT reported in late April, a new federal bill which would mandate the labeling of GMOs, the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act, was introduced by Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR). Though few expect such laws to pass on a national level, the bill was notable for its inclusion of a wider base of bipartisan support, with nine Senate co-sponsors and 22 cosponsors in the House.
Though sixty-four other countries, including EU members, China, Russia, Brazil, India and Japan already have existing regulations in place to label GMOs for consumers the issue is a highly contentious one in the US, both at the federal and state level.
According to Senator Boxer, more than 90 per cent of Americans support the labeling of genetically engineered products. Though the Food and Drug Administration requires the labeling of over 3,000 ingredients, additives and processes it does not consider GMOs to be “materially” different as they cannot be tasted, smelled or identified by consumers by other means.

Legally, part of the argument for labeling GMOs rests on the US Patent and Trademark Office determination that GMOs are in actually materially different and novel, at least for patents filed by the biotech companies that produce and sell these products.
The primary technology and method described in our eBook are patented to work as claimed. We have also verified the same and we find them very effective for all types of diseases even to those classified as incurables, e.g. hepatitis, vasculitis, leukemia, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, hypertension…
The eTreatments are uncompromisingly very effective and the recovery is very decisive. Please read the Frequently Asked Questions [FAQ] for more explanations and precautions.
You can have the same experience when you follow all instructions in our fully illustrated DIY eBook that ensures healthcare freedom for all!
Practical and doable solutions, that’s the awesome qualities of the technologies presented in this groundbreaking book. However, those same qualities are the reason why the would be reader, conditioned with the “complicated approach must be good” mindset, is skeptical at first.Getting past the conventional assumptions, and really implementing the protocol erases all doubt forever.
We have tested it on countless individuals. Dr. Robert C. Beck himself tested it, in collaboration with doctors and a laboratory, on more than a hundred AIDS and cancer patients.
And if our words are not enough, extract a dish of your blood and electrify it. Peek through a microscope before and after this procedure. If there are still microbes moving around then, don’t use this protocol.
It’s that easy to verify the reliability of this method.
Don’t get us wrong though. The protocol described in this eBook is not that invasive. There’s no need for blood extraction during the treatment or for diagnostic purposes. Your body will stay intact throughout the whole exercise.
There’s no possibility for blood contamination either as is common with conventional methods, e.g. haemodialysis.
Dr. Kaali has solved this problem for us, as early as 1993.
This patent covers a solution to AIDS and cancer, and yet the mainstream media are still parroting that such discovery does not exist. So why are you still listening to them?
Act for your own self, and be the captain of your own soul. Don’t let the Corporations dictate the fate of your own lives.
I already read 125 pages the first night after I discovered your book. You saved me a lot of work! It is the type of book I wanted to write, so thanks for saving me the trouble.
After I was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago I started my research and turned down the allopathic therapies, although I was operated on twice because I could learn fast enough and was like everybody else naief. I see the big picture like you.
Take care and I hope my donation helps in cracking the free energy puzzle 🙂
Just purchased your Ebook order # 967.Bought with the hopes of being able to print it off. Reading the fine print it sounds like it might be allowed.
I asked the question at an earlier date and you said it was O.K. I could do it myself but for the amount of pages i would rather take it to a printing company, but in reading the copyright to them over the phone ( the one at he start of the book and the one that’s at the bottom of most of the pages) they question if it is right to make a copy, and would need to read the copyright themselves.I prefer reading hard copies of books so if you could confirm if it is O.K. to make a copy, and if so how can i convince them it is all good.
Book looks great i can’t image the time putting it all together, keep hungering for the truth.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! Link worked great. Downloaded a copy to my phone and computer so I can have access at my convenience.
I like the new additions to the book. They make the information more user friendly.
I very much look forward to getting a copy of the alternative energy book you are working on. Any idea about a finish date?? Can you send me an e-mail notification when it is ready for purchase? That would be great. I am in the process of reading the new edition and digesting the new info. Great work!! Keep it up!!
Thanks for all your help!
What a fantastic book, it is going to take me sometime to digest all the info, some of info I have known since 1974 and it is hard to show the sheep, what is going on, this book will help greatly in that endeavor. I need a hard physical address to donate, thank you.
