Study Shows Roundup Herbicide Causes Antibiotic Resistance in Bacteria

This is the first study of its kind in the world. Research lead by a team from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand has found that commonly used herbicides, including the world’s most used herbicide Roundup, can cause bacteria to become resistant to antibiotics.

The team at the University of Canterbury investigated what happens to species of disease-causing bacteria when they are exposed to common herbicides such as Roundup, Kamba and 2,4-D.

Bt Toxins Toxic to Blood of Mice

Study shows that BT toxins Cry1Aa, Cry1Ab, Cry1Ac or Cry2A have toxic effects in the blood of mice.

Abstract

Roundup Destroyed Renal Tissues

A study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health proposes a link between the herbicide known as glyphosate-based Roundup and a series of mysterious epidemics of fatal chronic kidney disease of unknown origin (CKDu) affecting several poor farming regions around the world.

Abstract

Insecticidal Bt toxins

Insecticidal Bt toxins such as those produced in genetically engineered plants can be detrimental to human cells. This is a result of recent research led by researchers at the University of Caen (France). Their experiments showed that toxins produced in, for example, the genetically engineered maize MON810, can significantly impact the viability of human cells.

Beekeeping

Neonicotinoid pesticides are used to coat corn seed with air seeders resulting in the pesticide dust being blown into the air when planted.

The death of millions of pollinators was studied by Purdue University. They discovered that honeybees exhibited neurotoxic symptoms and found that traces of thiamethoxam/clothiandin were present in each case. The only major source of these compounds are seed treatments of field crops.

Common Pesticide Turns Honeybees into 'Picky Eaters'

Biologists at UC San Diego have discovered that a small dose of a commonly used crop pesticide turns honey bees into "picky eaters" and affects their ability to recruit their nest mates to otherwise good sources of food.

Honeybees must feed their young 1300 times a day in order to survive.

Illinois Seizes Beekeepers Research that Monsanto's Roundup Kills Honeybees

An Illinois beekeeper with more than a decade's worth of expertise about how to successfully raise organic, chemical-free bees is the latest victim of flagrant government tyranny. According to the Prairie Advocate, Terrence "Terry" Ingram of Apple River, Ill., owner of Apple Creek Apiaries, recently had his bees and beehives stolen from him by the Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDofA), as well as more than 15 years' worth of research proving Monsanto's Roundup to be the cause of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) destroyed.

Poland Bans GE Corn to Protect Honeybee Population

Poland has banned a strain of genetically engineered Monsanto corn, citing a link between the pervasive crop and the rapid decline of honeybee populations.

The Folly of Big Agriculture: Why Nature Always Wins

Large-scale industrial agriculture depends on engineering the land to ensure the absence of natural diversity. But as the recent emergence of herbicide-tolerant weeds on U.S. farms has shown, nature ultimately finds a way to subvert uniformity and assert itself.
