IN JUST ONE STATE, ROUNDUP FROM MONSANTO FOUND IN OVER 75% OF ALL RAIN/AIR SAMPLES
FOR ALL OF YOU WHO SOOOO LOVE THE GOVERNMENT "STUDIES", HERE'S ONE FOR THE RECORD BOOKS...
U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY... KNOWN LIARS THAT OFTEN ATTACK THEIR OWN WHO SHOW EVIDENCE OF THINGS CONTRARY TO WHAT THE OWNERS OF GOVERNMENT WANT US TO KNOW (SEE THIS STORY OF RUINED CAREERS AS JUST ONE SMALL EXAMPLE) , BUT SOME FOLKS NEED THAT "U.S." TO CONVINCE THEM THINGS ARE A-OK...
ALAS, IN THIS CASE, THINGS ARE NOT OKAY...SORRY, THOSE OF YOU WITH ROSE-COLORED GLASSES, GO BACK TO YOUR TVs NOW...
SAYER JI ALWAYS OFFERS IMPECCABLE DOCUMENTATION ON HIS ARTICLES, BUT THOSE OF YOU WHO FAVOR "SCIENTISTS" WITH YOUR PARTICULAR VIEW OF THINGS AND DISMISS OTHER, PERHAPS MORE QUALIFIED SCIENTISTS, DON'T EVEN BOTHER READING ANY OF THIS, EVEN THOUGH IT COMES FROM BIG BROTHER, I MEAN, THE FEDERAL GOVERN-MINT'S L'IL "SURVEY GROUP".
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HATE THE TRUTH, GO WATCH FOX "NEWS" OR PUT IN A TEA PARTY DVD AND ROCK ON...
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO RECOGNIZE MR. JI's DEDICATED RESEARCH AND CONTINUED WORK TO INFORM THE PUBLIC, GO READ THIS.
THEN, MAYBE YOU MAY WANT TO CALL YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS AND DEMAND SOME ACTION TO CLEAR OUR AIR AND DETOXIFY OUR WATER SUPPLIES?
I CAN DREAM...
A new study from the U.S. Geological Survey, accepted for publication online ahead of print in the journal Enviromental Toxicology and Chemistry, titled, "Pesticides in Mississippi air and rain: A comparison between 1995 and 2007,"[i] reveals that Roundup herbicide (aka glyphosate) and its still-toxic degradation byproduct AMPA were found in over 75% of the air and rain samples tested from Mississippi in 2007.
The researchers evaluated a wide range of pesticides currently being used through weekly composite air and rain sampling collected during the 1995 and 2007 growing seasons in the Mississippi Delta agricultural region.
The researchers discovered the following:
Thirty-seven compounds were detected in the air or rain samples in 2007; 20 of these were present in both air and rain.
Glyphosate was the predominant new herbicide detected in both air (86%) and rain (77%) in 2007, but were not measured in 1995.
The longer period of exposure adds to growing concern that this
ubiquitous toxicant represents an unavoidable body burden and that even
small daily environmental exposures may be causing significant harm
through their cumulative and synergistic effects with other toxicants.
THE ARTICLE CONTINUES:
So, what is the toxicological significance of the discovery of glyphosate in most air samples tested? In the month of August, 2007, if you were breathing in the sampled air you would be inhaling approximately 2.5 nanograms of glyphosate per cubic meter of air. It has been estimated the average adult inhales approximately 388 cubic feet or 11 cubic meters of air per day, which would equal to 27.5 nanograms (billionths of a gram) of glyphosate a day. Of course, when one considers the presence of dozons of other agrichemicals found alongside glyphosate in these samples, the interactions between them are incalculably complex and produce far more harm together than glyphosate alone (i.e. synergistic toxicity). Also, now that recent cell research has shown that glyphosate may act as an endocrine disrupter exhibiting estrogenic-like carcinogenicity within the part-per-trillion range, there is all the more reason to raise the red flag of the precautionary principle -- especially since inhaled toxicants evade the elaborate detoxification mechanisms of ingested toxicants which must pass through the microbiome, intestinal lining and liver before entering the blood and only a long time later the lung far downstream.
Ultimately, findings like these reveal just how illusory is the perception of choice and health freedom when it comes to the GM/non-GMO debate, and the consumer's right to avoid harm from GMOs by refusing to buy or consume them. Not only are consumers in the U.S. not allowed to know what is in their food with accurate and truthful labeling of ingredients, we now know that biopollution from GMOs produces uncontrollable and irreversible changes in the genomes of affected organisms when their transgenes escape into them, and we know that even beyond their genomic/proteomic differences the contamination of GM foods with herbicides like Roundup (glyphosate) makes them non-substantially equivalent in chemical composition to their non-contaminated alternatives.
The reality is that the environment is becoming so saturated with the 'fall out' from the ever-expanding GM agricultural/agrichemical farming grid that even if you somehow find a way to avoid eating contaminated food, you will be forced to have to deal with its adverse health effects, as long as you need air to breath and water to drink.
Ultimately, unless our food production system moves through its present chemical war-modeled phase of GM monoculturing, even non-GM food will end up being contaminated with these chemicals and transgenes, because nothing 'natural' lives in a vacuum - and if it does, then it really shouldn't be called "organic," and maybe shouldn't even be called food.

DID THE USGS BOYS GO STUDY OTHER STATES?
LIKELY NOT...THEY'RE PROBABLY STILL TRYING TO FIND WAYS TO DENY THE RESULTS OF THIS ONE, PROPAGANDIZE AWAY THE FACT THAT THIS WILL "ADVERSELY AFFECT THE HEALTH OF AMERICANS"...WE CAN'T HAVE PANIC OVER SUCH THINGS...DAMAGE CONTROL, DAMAGE CONTROL, CALL FOX FOR A QUICK FIX! BRING IN THE "AD-MEN", MAKE THIS PALATABLE FOR THE SHEEPLE!
