Report from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry claims Monsanto’s Roundup linked to brain cancer in children.
The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, a branch of the US Department of Health and Human Services, recently claimed that Roundup could cause brain cancer for potential offspring. The report explained that children born from parents who were exposed to Roundup for up to two years, have an increased risk of developing brain cancer.
It said: “We included 526 one-to-one–matched case–control pairs. Brain cancer cases were diagnosed at < 10 years of age, and were identified from statewide cancer registries of four U.S. Atlantic Coast states. We selected controls by random digit dialing. We conducted computer-assisted telephone interviews with mothers. Using information on residential pesticide use and jobs held by fathers during the 2-year period before the child’s birth, we assessed potential exposure to insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides. . .”
Researchers concluded that exposure to Roundup from both parents would negatively impact the child before birth, not just the mother.
As more research is revealed regarding Monsanto’s toxic chemicals and GMO products, one must wonder how long it will take before the United States joins the many other countries who banned their products. Being a vigilant citizen encompasses more than just being skeptical of government, it involves being cognizant of the food you are eating and where it comes from. It involves voting with your dollar to help end food tyranny in America, and prove to big criminal organizations like Monsanto that we will not stand for their poisonous substances. It involves exposing special interests in the USDA and FDA, while educating yourself on the toxic ingredients commonly used in foods that could be killing you.
Most of all, it involves supporting websites like March Against Monsanto who are fighting to make our country a healthier place for ourselves and our children.
