Monsanto’s Roundup Herbicide – The Ultimate Killing Machine



  • Two key problems caused by glyphosate in the diet are nutritional deficiencies, especially minerals, and systemic toxicity
  • Glyphosate is possibly “the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies,” according to researchers

[The more we hear about Monsanto the more we realize they are basically a state sponsored killing machine. Makes you wonder what they really mean by “Roundup” – sounds like what they do when exterminating large numbers of people. They’re sure doing it in every way possible. And if genetic engineering isn’t bad enough, for decades they’ve been loading the plants up with this horrific herbicide (and now others since the plants are developing a resistance to it) compounding the disastrous effects on the human body. Now add the indiscriminate residential use to the massive commercial use of Roundup – all since the 1970’s! – and we start to see the degree of horror these evil, greedy bastards have perpetrated on the human race. All while assuring everyone it was safe. Of course. – Zen]

By Dr. Mercola


In recent weeks, we’ve learned some very disturbing truths about glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s broad-spectrum herbicide Roundup, which is generously doused on genetically engineered (GE) Roundup Ready crops.

GE crops are typically far more contaminated with glyphosate than conventional crops, courtesy of the fact that they’re engineered to withstand extremely high levels of Roundup without perishing along with the weed.

A new peer-reviewed report authored by Anthony Samsel, a retired science consultant, and a long time contributor to the Mercola.com Vital Votes Forum, and  Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), reveals how glyphosate wrecks human health.

In the interview above, Dr. Seneff summarizes the two key problems caused by glyphosate in the diet:

  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Systemic toxicity

Their findings make the need for labelling all the more urgent, and the advice to buy certified organic all the more valid.

The Horrific Truth about Roundup

In 2009, a French court found Monsanto guilty of lying; falsely advertising its Roundup herbicide as “biodegradable,” “environmentally friendly” and claiming it “left the soil clean.”

Mounting evidence now tells us just how false such statements are. I don’t believe that Monsanto is one of the most evil companies on the planet for nothing. The company has done absolutely nothing to improve their worldwide influence on human and environmental health.

In the video above, Jeffrey Smith, author of the bestseller Seeds of Deception, says Monsanto, during some reflective moment, must have asked “What would Darth Vader do?” Because what they’ve come up with is a way of pretending that they’re beneficial and then insinuating themselves into the food and agriculture industry, and now it turns out that what they have is very, very dangerous.

Indeed, according to Dr. Seneff, glyphosate is possibly “the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies,” including but not limited to:

Autism Gastrointestinal diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrhea, colitis and Crohn’s disease Obesity
Allergies Cardiovascular disease Depression
Cancer Infertility Alzheimer’s disease
Parkinson’s disease Multiple sclerosis ALS, and more

How Glyphosate Worsens Modern Diseases

While Monsanto insists that Roundup is as safe to humans as aspirin, Seneff and Samsel’s research tells a different story altogether. Their report, published in the journal Entropy1, argues that glyphosate residues, found in most commonly consumed foods in the Western diet courtesy of GE sugar, corn, soy and wheat, “enhance the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and toxins in the environment to disrupt normal body functions and induce disease.”

Interestingly, your gut bacteria are a key component of glyphosate’s mechanism of harm.

Monsanto has steadfastly claimed that Roundup is harmless to animals and humans because the mechanism of action it uses (which allows it to kill weeds), called the shikimate pathway, is absent in all animals. However, the shikimate pathway IS present in bacteria, and that’s the key to understanding how it causes such widespread systemic harm in both humans and animals.

The bacteria in your body outnumber your cells by 10 to 1. For every cell in your body, you have 10 microbes of various kinds, and all of them have the shikimate pathway, so they will all respond to the presence of glyphosate!

Glyphosate causes extreme disruption of the microbe’s function and lifecycle. What’s worse, glyphosate preferentially affects beneficial bacteria, allowing pathogens to overgrow and take over. At that point, your body also has to contend with the toxins produced by the pathogens. Once the chronic inflammation sets in, you’re well on your way toward chronic and potentially debilitating disease. In the interview above, Dr. Seneff reviews a variety of chronic diseases, explaining how glyphosate contributes to each condition. So to learn more, I urge you to listen to it in its entirety. It’s quite eye-opening.

  1. I just picked the greenest, most perfect head of romaine from the garden just now. organic soil mix, never sprayed it with anything…. it just became PERFECT all on its own. I DID IT I DID IT I DID IT! i should say: thank you mother nature, I am in awe of you!

    FUCK YOU ROUND UP. Hey I just saw an FBI poster flash before me (I’m watching the HC2 channel’s “Ten Things You Didn’t Know About _________. J. Edgar Hoover is on now) it reads RED ROUND UP and they’re talking about Hoover’s obsession with “bugs”. Creepy

  2. I saw an ad poster for Roundup last Thursday near a home improvement market. Just thought: “Holy fucking shit!!! When even my small home town gets this propaganda, the Endgame must be here!”

    …think I need to sing along some more times to Omnia’s “curse”. 😀

    * This one’s for Monsanto:
    Double double toil and trouble
    Fire burn and cauldron bubble
    Double double trouble you
    Bubble in a witches’ brew *

  3. My song for the day —

    Colin Hay playing Overkill for FOXNews com (oh the irony)

    I can’t get to sleep
    I think about the implications
    Of diving in too deep
    And possibly the complications

    Especially at night
    I worry over situations
    I know I’ll be alright
    Perhaps it’s just imagination

    Day after day it reappears
    Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
    Ghosts appear and fade away

    Alone between the sheets
    Only brings exasperation
    It’s time to walk the streets
    Smell the desperation

    At least there’s pretty lights
    And though there’s little variation
    It nullifies the night from overkill

    Day after day it reappears
    Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
    Ghosts appear and fade away
    Come back another day

    I can’t get to sleep
    I think about the implications
    Of diving in too deep
    And possibly the complications

    Especially at night
    I worry over situations
    I know I’ll be alright
    It’s just overkill

    Day after day it reappears
    Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
    Ghosts appear and fade away

  4. someone needs to write an article and outline the people who really own Monsanto.

    Hint around 95% of the private shareholders are Jewish and Jewish companies. Israelis owns around 7% of this company.

    The various counties and districts of the USA own a whopping 15% of Monsanto. You can check out the online CAFR reports. Someone needs to do this article.

    The government owns a huge chunk of Monsanto and the overwhelming ownership and leadership of the company is outrightly JEWISH.

    Monsanto is another branch of the beast alright. We gotta hack at the root though to bring them down.

  5. Hey Zen, ironically, there’s a Roundup ad that drops down on your homepage. It’s for “stoppoisonivy.com”.
    I took a screen shot of it and will send it to you if I can get your addy.

    • OK, get it now. I responded to your second post – try to understand I’m in a far away time zone and can’t moderate 24/7 although I try to keep up. Thank you for catching this – setting parameters with these guys is a big deal but I’ll notify my web guy. Thanks again.

  6. Well heck Zen, I gave you a heads-up about stoppoisonivy.com sneaking a roundup ad on your site and didn’t even get a “thanks”. I did notice you took it down, though……. you’re welcome anyway. If you had acknowledged my message, I probably wouldn’t have come away “just wondering” about you. Now, well……………….

  7. But that’s not all. Dr. Stephanie Seneff has been conducting research at MIT for over three decades. She also has an undergraduate degree in biology from MIT and a minor in food and nutrition, and I have previously interviewed her about her groundbreaking insights into the critical importance of sulfur in human health. Not surprisingly, this latest research also touches on sulfur, and how it is affected by glyphosate from food.

    “[W]e show how interference with CYP enzymes acts synergistically with disruption of the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids by gut bacteria, as well as impairment in serum sulfate transport,” the authors write.

    “Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. … [T]he recent alarming increase in all of these health issues can be traced back to a combination of gut dysbiosis, impaired sulfate transport, and suppression of the activity of the various members of the cytochrome P450 (CYP) family of enzymes.”

    That right there is the reason I’m taking organic sulfer crystals daily. I’ve been taking them for a week now, and I already feel the difference! My body LOVES this stuff! It also helps that I’ve been clearing house mentally and releasing old relationships that no longer serve my highest good 😉 I recommend buying it from Ener-Chi.com, beware there are a lot of rip offs out there advertising the real deal, but it’s not the good stuff.

    • the one I take is MSM (organic sulfur) Powder from SunfoodNutrition.com, rawfood.com. my local heath food store carries it. food grade DE (diatomaceous earth) is also VERY helpful for detox, pets, garden etc.
