Monsanto’s “Roundup” Herbicide is Destroying Our Bodies

argylesock says… This is one of the reasons I fear the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) now being negotiated between the European Union and the United States. I don’t want the TTIP to provide a back door for Monsanto to gain more control over European farming than it already has. I’d like also to remind people that Roundup has been called a ‘pathway to modern diseases’. Here’s the science about that.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.

    Hello Sam, I’m with you, I don’t like TTIP either. And coming along with the surge of anti-European feeling expressed over the weekend I think we are putting ourselves as a nation in an increasingly perilous situation! Scary times.

    At the human level, there are nothing but losers in any of these multinational treaties. Standards never go up, they always go down. Some local industries on both sides win, but the people always lose. Look at the loss of German beer purity laws as an old example. If on your side of the pond your concerned about having to eat Roundup, I can’t help but wonder what crap we will be importing in compensation for that deal.

      I can’t say that I know anything about German beer purity laws.

        Originally passed in 1516, in I Bavaria, it originally required that been only contain barley, hops and water. Hops being a safer preservative than most then in use. Yeast was later added, as was wheat, but chemical preservatives were banned until the formation of the EU. then non German producers claimed that since chemical preservatives were perfectly safe, banning them was restraint of trade. EU official agreed, and Germans can now drink all the chemical preservatives then want when drinking cheap imported beer.
