The Dangers of Weed Killer


Glyphosate is a potent weed killer and is the main ingredient in brands such as Roundup.  First introduced into the U.S. Market in 1974, within the next 40 years glyphosate use increased more than 250 -fold.   In 1993, few people had detectable levels of glyphosate in their urine.  In 2016, 70% of the population had detectable levels.  Glyphosate is not just used to kill the weeds around your house, but it is widely used in all agriculture on all of our food crops.  Emails found within the Food and Drug Administration reveal that all foods tested including granola, oatmeal, crackers and honey found glyphosate levels inside the food.  Independent testing has found glyphosate in many foods such as legumes, beans, orange juice, wine and ice cream.  This is now a major reason why people need to be buying organic pesticide free food.  Glyphosate is a major toxic chemical, one which it’s manufacturer was sued for millions and millions of dollars due to glyphosate causing cancer in farmers.  Another major concern is the household use of glyphosate for weed killing.  The chemical seeps through the soil and can end up in our ground water.  Also, rain water run-off from you curbs and side walks into the streets sewer pipes causes glyphosate to enter our bays, oceans, rivers lakes and streams.   Just say no to using glyphosate products like Round-up.  Try white vinegar instead.  White vinegar kills weeds and is harmless to the environment.

Breast feeding benefits:  Despite overwhelming scientific research stating that breast feeding is the best nutrition for newborns, infant formula manufacturers are claiming infant formula strengthens immune health and brain development.  The World Health Organization and the Academy of Pediatrics support breast feeding for a minimum of the first 6 months of life.  The benefits of breast feeding last a lifetime, as breast fed infants have a lower risk of obesity, asthma, ear infections and sudden infant death.  Mothers who breast feed have a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, ovarian and breast cancer.  There are also mental health benefits, as mothers who breast feed experienced reduced stress and anxiety in the early months of caring for their newborn.

According to a 2022 covid-19 data analysis performed by a Portuguese research firm, in the US, covid-19 vaccines injured more than 6.6 million people, disabled 1.36 million people and caused more than 300,000 excess deaths and cost the economy an estimated 147 billion dollars in damages.  Utilizing data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and other official government sources, The Portuguese researchers split the impact of the COVID-19 vaccines into four categories of human cost: no effect/asymptomatic, injuries (mild to moderate), disabilities (severe injury) and death.  According to the project’s findings, approximately 81% of the population falls into the “no effect or asymptomatic” group, which “comprises those individuals who did not experience adverse events following the COVID-19 inoculations.”  Using the “excess rate of related adverse events in vaccinated individuals obtained from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vaccine-safe database, versus the placebo baseline (5.98%) in the Pfizer clinical trial,” the researchers concluded, “the pool of possibly injured individuals due to the vaccine is about 18% of the population.”
