Agricultural Pesticides Linked to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

From Dr. Mercola:

Pesticide exposure has been linked to a number of chronic and devastating diseases, including Parkinson’s, DNA damage, and cancer

A recent meta-analysis, which included 44 papers exploring the impacts of pesticide exposure on non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, concluded there appears to be a strong link between the two
Phenoxy herbicides, including 2,4-D and dicamba, are clearly associated with three distinct types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). The strongest evidence is reported for glyphosate (Roundup) and B cell lymphoma

Mounting research reveals that glyphosate (Roundup) may be one of the most toxic chemicals ever to enter our food supply. Some scientists believe it may be even more toxic than DDT

Carbamate insecticides, organophosphorus insecticides, and the active ingredient lindane—an organochlorine insecticide also used to treat head lice—were also positively associated with NHL

Whether you need help detoxifying from direct exposure (as we who live in a Big Ag area do get directly exposed to pesticides – downwinder’s “syndrome”) or are suffering from having eaten food laced with this poison, give our office a call and see how we can help!

Eating poison?

From Mercola:

Recent research shows that genetically engineered (GE) soy contains high levels of glyphosate along with a poorer nutritional profile, leading the researchers to conclude that GE soy is NOT “substantially equivalent” to non-GE soy

On average, GE soy contained 11.9 parts per million (ppm) of glyphosate. The highest residue level found was 20.1 ppm. No residues of either kind were found in the conventional non-GE and organic varieties

Processed foods undoubtedly expose you to this toxic contamination, courtesy of the GE soy and vegetable oil, GE high fructose corn syrup, and/or GE sugar beets used

Compared to conventionally-grown non-GE and GE soy, organic soybeans contained higher levels of protein and zinc, and lower levels of omega-6

Argentina has become one of the largest producers of GE soy and corn, and along with it, the country has experienced an explosion of miscarriages, fertility problems, and abnormal fetal development

So what does this mean?

If You Eat Processed Food, You’re Eating Glyphosate..
While nearly one billion pounds of glyphosate is doused on both conventional and GE crops worldwide each year, GE crops receive the heaviest amounts. It’s important to realize that processed foods undoubtedly expose you to this toxic contamination, courtesy of the soy and vegetable oil used.

It’s quite crucial to understand that glyphosate contamination is systemic, meaning it is present in every cell of the plant, from root to tip. It’s not just an issue of topical contamination, as with many other agricultural chemicals sprayed on crops.
Normally, you need to thoroughly wash your produce to remove topical residues, but you simply cannot remove glyphosate from your produce. And neither can food and animal feed manufacturers who use GE ingredients in their products.

Birth Malformation Skyrocketing in Agricultural Centers of Argentina.
As noted in the featured BBC radio report14 above, Argentina has become one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of GE soy and corn, and along with it, the country has experienced an explosion of miscarriages, fertility problems, and abnormal fetal development. In the province of Chaco, birth defects have quadrupled in the decade following the introduction of GE crops.

More toxic than DDT and it’s in our food…

Glyphosate—the active ingredient in Monsanto’s broad-spectrum herbicide Roundup which Monsanto has marketed as “environmentally friendly” and “biodegradable” is FAR more toxic than anyone previously suspected, both alone and in combination with other additives (as in the case of Roundup), or in combination with other agricultural chemicals and/or heavy metals. Dr. Donald Huber, one of the premier plant pathologists in the US, views it far more toxic than DDT. Furthermore, according to an analysis conducted by researchers from the University of Sherbrooke Hospital Centre in Quebec, Canada, 100 percent of pregnant women and their unborn babies tested positive for GMO toxins in their blood, proving that transgenic materials are not effectively broken down and eliminated during digestion as we have all been told. Upon observation, they noticed that the non-pregnant women all had high levels of both glyphosate and gluphosinate in their blood, while none of the pregnant women had either of the two chemicals in their blood, illustrating that some type of metabolic change takes place when women become pregnant. As far as the other chemicals were concerned; however, 100 percent of the pregnant women and their unborn babies tested positive for 3-methylphosphinico propionic acid (3-MMPA), a metabolite of gluphosinate, while 93 percent of maternal blood and 80 percent of fetal cord blood tested positive for the Bt toxin Cry1Ab.

This is highly concerning, as it shows not only that these two untested chemicals are effectively bypassing the digestive systems of pregnant women, but that they are also persisting in their bloodstreams for an untold amount of time, where they proceed to infect the bloodstreams of unborn children. The long-term health effects of such exposure are largely unknown, as few formative safety studies have ever been conducted on either Bt toxin or the pesticide and herbicide chemicals used on GMO crops.

Some of the detrimental effects of Roundup delivered by GMO (Roundup ready) food:

  • Causes extreme disruption of your gut microbes’ function and lifecycle; preferentially affecting beneficial bacteria, while promoting the growth of pathogens in your intestines.
  • Inhibits enzymes that catalyze the oxidation of organic substances, which appears to be an overlooked component of glyphosate’s toxicity to mammals. By limiting the ability of these enzymes to detoxify foreign chemical compounds, glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of those chemicals and environmental toxins you may be exposed to.
  • Is toxic to human DNA even when diluted to concentrations 450-fold lower than used in agricultural applications.

How GMO food rots your brain

From Waking Times: http://www.wakingtimes.com/2014/03/28/roundup-weedkiller-brain-damaging-neurotoxin/

“Roundup-induced glutamate excitotoxicity appears to share similar effects to monosodium glutamate (MSG) and aspartame-linked excitotoxicity…

…(By) Increase(ing) the amino acid glutamate into the junctions through which neurons communicate (synaptic cleft), which, when released in excess levels, can exert excitotoxic/neurotixc effects in neurons.

Decrease the neuroprotective antioxidant glutathione.

Increase ‘brain rancidity,’ i.e. lipoperoxidation, characterized by excitotoxicity (over-stimulation of the neurons) and oxidative damage.”

What they’re saying is that Roundup acts like MSG – a known neurotoxin; oxidizing the brain – a process similar to rusting metal.

“The authors also pointed out that their study found maternal exposure to Roundup® resulted in the offspring being exposed to the herbicide because it crosses the placental barrier during gestation and/or it is passed to them through the breast milk.”

This is in keeping with a recent study published in the journal Reproductive Toxicology:

“According to an analysis conducted by researchers from the University of Sherbrooke Hospital Centre in Quebec, Canada, 100 percent of pregnant women and their unborn babies tested positive for GMO toxins in their blood, proving that transgenic materials are not effectively broken down and eliminated during digestion as we have all been told.”
