account that a food supply sprayed with glyphosate might be harmful. It also didn’t take into account that Mother Nature can- not be fooled. Increasingly, weeds are developing resistance to Roundup® and crops now have to be saturated with the herbicide to control the resistant weeds. 90% of GMO crops are Roundup® resis- tant. Also, Roundup® does damage the resistant plants. It binds up the minerals in the plants. To complicate matters, many Ameri-

cans don’t hear about the negative effects of GMOs and glyphosate, because re- search into those effects has been actively suppressed in this country and abroad by the companies that create GMOs, most notably Monsanto. At every turn, Mon- santo has interfered with research that explores the harmful effects of Roundup®: refusing to provide seed to researchers, refusing to let farmers conduct experi- ments with the seed, infiltrating the gov- ernment and the FDA, limiting what re- search is performed, blocking publication of negative research, and professional assassination of those scientists who dare to publish research that is not favorable to their business.

In spite of the opposition, there are dedicated scientists working diligently to uncover and spread the word about the dangers of glyphosate and GMOs and how they're impacting our society. Most nota- bly are Stephanie Seneff, PhD, a senior research scientist at MIT, Don Huber PhD, Emeritus Professor of Plant Pathology at Purdue University, Gilles-Eric Seralini PhD, Professor of Molecular Biology at the University of Caen in France and Judy Carmen PhD, lead researcher at Flinders University in Australia. Jeffrey Smith, executive director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, au- thor of

the books Seeds of Deception

(2003) and Genetic Roulette (2007), and producer/director of the 2012 movie, Ge- netic Roulette, and many others like him are leading the charge for further research and for more sustainable, less toxic farm- ing practices.

After a closer look at the data that

these researchers and others like them have been uncovering, it’s easy to see why there is such a growing push for the elimination of Roundup® and GMO foods and, minimally, clear labeling of these foods.

How widespread are GMOs and glyphosate?

GMOs and, therefore, glyphosate are

ever-present in our daily diet—particu- larly in the United States, where Round- up® is the No. 1 herbicide in use. Take a look at some of the crops (XX% of all CROP grown in USA is GMO):

• Corn (88% of all corn grown in USA is GMO) fed to farm animals and used in processed foods. Also made into high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and corn oil

•Soybeans (93%) fed to farm animals

and used in pro- cessed foods. Includes soy bean oil

• Cottonseed (94%) oil used in many processed foods and cotton made into clothes

• Alfalfa (not known %) fed to dairy cows >>>
