Why would there by glyphosate in rice fields? There is no rice grown that is resistant to it. Doesn't Arsenic all by its lonesome cause kidney diseases ?

Possible link of Chronic arsenic toxicity with
Chronic Kidney Disease of unknown etiology in Sri Lanka

In the abstract of the above article the below extract is included
"A grochemicals could be the possible source
for this contamination of arsenic since no reported work is available to indicate the presence of arsenic in the
bedrocks of Sri Lanka."

Hopefully this will result in a massive class action lawsuit and put Monsanto out of business and every company like them.

BY THE WAY get out of the Ukraine

causes autism in the west, brain loss in pigs in one farm in the US, causes indian farmers to commit suicide (although less than when it was not used), causes global warming, soil loss even though it allows conservation tillage on and one and one it goes. Mind you dihydrogen oxide is far worse and used by the organic industry

..... and BY THE WAY Russia get out of Ukraine


Tony Davies 28.02.2014 22:43

Or it might be the cause. No evidence just speculation. Apparently glyphosate 50% of which is made by the chinese and mostly sold by the chinese in the east also causes: bee die off even where it is not used, monarch butterflies - somehow more than any other herbicide, causes cancer in cancer prone rats but cures cancer at higher doses in male cancer prone rats,

Would be good if many Yanks put their patriotism and Russophobia on the line by drinking raw Roundup!

No t to prove whether it's safe or anything like that, but simply to show up Putin.

how is it that important information like this we cannot email to anyone or anywhere? I thought Monsanto had experienced all this and had tested all these things they are pushing onto the public and it was not suppose to cause damage to anyone or anything, is that correct?
