Organic Sulfur, Have You Heard Of It? It’s Time You Have!

Organic Sulfur, have you heard of it? I never had until recently and I think I fell upon it only because I’m a health nut. If you are not a health nut like me, you probably wouldn’t EVER hear of it! This is what I learned, EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW!!

Have you heard over and over that our soil is just not the same as it used to be? I have! So what does this mean? It means our food doesn’t have the nutrients it used to have and NEEDS to have. But have you ever stopped to ask WHY?  I’ll tell ya why, and it’s real simple!

It appears that countries using chemical fertilizers have an increase in disease while those that use organically-based fertilizing methods do not. And, it appears, according to the West Coast Organic Sulfur Study, those who regularly take Organic Sulfur (over the long term) become quite healthy and those who don’t, stay sick, or get worse, and prematurely age.  I believe it is one very important missing link to good health!

In 1860, I.G. Farben first produced chemical fertilizers from coal tar. This resulted (1938) in Nelson Rockefeller and Prescott Bush contracting with I.G. Farben to develop and aggressively market ammonium nitrate and ammonium sulfate as chemical fertilizers. (You know, The Rockefeller’s) This process requires heat and naturally occurring sulfur is one of the most temperature-sensitive of all the elements. When I.G. Farben began its chemical fertilizer production from coal tar and crude oil, temperatures 100 degrees over the vaporization point of sulfur were necessary to produce these chemical fertilizers. Sulfur evaporated in the process. The chemists ignored the elimination of this elemental food. Hmm I wonder why…?

In 1954 chemical fertilizers, which lack bio-available sulfur, were mandated by the government. This appears to have contributed to the decline of our health and mental acuity and our quality of life. Since the mandating of chemical fertilizers all disease rates in the US have gone up approximately 4,000%. We believe when this study has completed its work it will clearly demonstrate the connection between the lack of sulfur (from the use of chemical fertilizers), the inability of body cells to regenerate in a healthy manner, and the related increase in diseases.

The original project, formerly called the Live Blood and Cellular Matrix Study, was organized by the director of the Body Human Project in 1999. That study was inspired by a fatal type of breast cancer which had been reported to respond to organic sulfur. While researching this cancer it appeared that bio-available sulfur played an important role in the health and regeneration of body cells. That early study led us to believe that the use of chemical fertilizers (which do not contain bio-available sulfur) had effectively broken the environmental sulfur cycle in those countries which use chemical fertilizers.

Diseases we haven’t even heard of have become typical; cancer, auto-immune illnesses, diabetes, heart conditions, asthma, etc., have grown at an unprecedented rate, AN UNACCEPTABLE RATE if ya ask me; and the quality of our food has been greatly diminished. MDs, Ph.D.s,  and other medical professionals, when asked about sulfur, stated as if reading a cue card: “We get all the sulfur we need from the food we eat.” That may have been true until governments decided to change the way we grow our food and legalized the 100% use of chemical fertilizers (which began in earnest in 1954).

If you are trapped in a cage of turmoil and illness,
the door to healing always opens from the inside.

The West Coast Organic Sulfur Study believe most, and possibly all MSM  [[(methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic source of sulfur, a mineral that is vital in the formation of collagen, connective tissue, and healthy joint cartilage]] that is commercially available does not contain more than 34% sulfur, the sulfur it does contain is most likely contaminated with additives, and by observation some MSM products contain no bio-available sulfur at all!! Like the fertilizers that have broken the sulfur cycle, packaging and processing contaminates MSM and blocks its bio-availability to our body cells. For MSM retail products, anti-caking agents are necessary for the production of capsules and pills. These additives, and the pulverizing of the sulfur flakes into powder, seriously interferes with the body’s uptake of the sulfur. So what is the best source you are probably wondering at this point…

Organic Sulfur is a critical bio-available form of sulfur that has been missing from our diet since 1954. Finland was one of several countries that authorized the use of chemical fertilizers in the early 1950s. In the early 1980s, alarmed over the increasing disease rate of its population, and fearing the levels of cadmium, Finland took a hard look at chemical fertilizers and banned all of them. At that time, the US and Finland were at the same per-capita marked disease levels. Finland was not aware of the connection of bio-available sulfur to health, its absence in chemical fertilizers, or the Krebbs cycle (chemical reactions in organisms that are part of the process of aerobic cell metabolism). Since 1985, after banning chemical fertilizers, Finland has become a leading supplier of “bio-friendly” completely organic foods. Their disease rates have dropped to one tenth (10%) of the 1985 levels. Finland’s disease rates continue to slowly drop. North America’s disease rates continue to rise and we continue to use chemical fertilizers.

The West Coast Organic Sulfur Study believes that the absence of Organic Sulfur is the mineral deficiency which may be responsible for the greatest increase in disease in North America. Nutrients remain unavailable, amino acid and cellular function is greatly reduced, healthy gas-balances are not maintained (oxygen-nitrogen-carbon dioxide), and toxins remain embedded in the body’s cells. Healthy body cellular metabolism is the basis for cellular regeneration of all of our cells. Without organic sulfur to enable the intracellular oxygen transfer and maintain the efficacy of amino acids, we begin to degenerate and age long before our biologic clock runs out.

It is important to remember:
ORGANIC SULFUR IS FOOD, NOT A VITAMIN OR A DRUG

West Coast Organic Sulfur is not the yellow dirt from mining.
It is not related to the sulfa drugs that some people are allergic to.
This is not the less effective MSM that is available in retail stores.

The West Coast Organic Sulfur comes as a white flake, precipitated from DMSO. No fillers, anti-caking agents, or preservatives are added. This is a pure, uncontaminated form of methylsulfonylmethane which is “fresh” from the precipitator and has no further processing. This is NOT the organic sulfur (MSM) that is purchased in retail outlets. Only pure organic sulfur is supplied to participants.

Instructions for Use:

TAKING WEST COAST PROJECT ORGANIC SULFUR

The following recommended guidelines were developed from interviews with
the participants of the West Coast Organic Sulfur Project.  Be mindful that organic sulfur has a bitter taste; however, within a month or so the taste becomes a non issue
for most people. Ensure organic sulfur is not taken at the same time as prescription medication, vitamins, or nutraceutical products. These products interfere with organic sulfur. Whenever possible take organic sulfur at least 20 minutes before eating or
taking other pills and supplement.

1 measured teaspoon = 4 – 5 g

The standard amount for a person in reasonably good health is:

  • Metric: 5 – 6 g per 45 kg of body weight, twice a day, about 10 hours apart.
  • US Measurement: 1.5 measured teaspoons per 100 lbs of body weight, twice a day, about
    10 hours apart. i.e: a generally healthy 150 pound person would take 2 teaspoons early morning and the same amount again, in the late afternoon (about 30 minutes before the evening meal).

Too much Organic Sulfur has not been demonstrated to be harmful. Actually, it is evident the body works better with too much rather than too little. Adults, under 125 lbs, take a minimum of 1.5 tsp twice a day, about 10 hours apart. If in doubt, always take a little more
than you think you should. Too much organic sulfur has not been demonstrated.

•height and weight —being over-weight for your height requires that you take more than the standard recommended amount —BMI, which is related to heart-mass pressure;
•general weight –if you are height/weight appropriate, the heavier you
are the more you take (larger mass requires more organic sulfur);
•the illness or health conditions you are trying to address: the more chronic and serious the illness, the more you take; and,
•the amount of stress you cope with (a crucial but subjective evaluation). Stress makes greater demands on your physiology; with more stress take slightly more organic sulfur

There are two options for taking it:

•Put the recommended amount directly into your mouth and quickly swallow it with a few sips of water. Follow this with drinking 10 oz of water. This appears to be the most convenient and effective to get quickly past the taste. (or)

•Dissolve the amount in a large (10 oz) glass of warm or room temperature water and drink it. This appears to be the most disagreeable because of the exposure to its bitter taste.

[if a microwave is used to warm the water do not add the sulfur until after the water is
heated. Microwaves use temperatures above 400 F and organic sulfur vaporizes at 270 F]

Healing Crises

Assume for the moment that your body cells, blood cells, blood capillaries, skin cells, cellular oxygen/nutrient transfer, and peptide and amino acid manufacture, aren’t working well. Calcium buildup, plaque, etc., are broken down by organic sulfur, arteries and capillaries soften, blood pressure changes (stabilizes), brain fog dissipates, pain is reduced, free radicals are neutralized, and detoxing/cellular repair begins. In the beginning, all of this will sometimes precipitate an achy flu like series of sensations or a few mild headaches a temporary healing or detox “crisis”.

This is not like the side effects of prescription medication. There are no side effects from organic sulfur. Any healing crisis indicates your body adjusting, in a healing way, to the sudden availability of oxygen and nutrients to your body cells. This sudden change is a shock to your body and the positive shift upsets your biology. These will disappear as your body acclimatizes and stabilizes itself. Any minor healing crisis is evidence that your body is adjusting and healing.

Acclimatization Process

In all but rare situations, everyone should acclimatize when beginning to take organic sulfur. If you are particularly sensitive to foods, have many allergies, or environmental illness and toxic reactions, when beginning to take organic sulfur it is very important that you begin at a low amount and gradually increase to the recommended amount. In a few situations, the gradual increase can take up to 2 months, although it is usually 3 to 4 weeks. At the beginning we recommend this acclimatization process for a reasonably healthy person 130–160 pounds
•Take ½ teaspoon of organic sulfur once a day in the early morning for 4 days, then
•Increase to ½ teaspoon twice a day (early AM and about 9 hours later for 4
days, then
•Increase to 1 teaspoon twice a day (same times) for 4 days; then
•If there are no flu-like symptoms that indicate a healing crisis, go to the recommended amount for your weight and health issues.
If mild upset is experienced at any level go back to the previous, smaller amount for an extra week. Give your body time to adjust. If there are no flu-detoxification symptoms you can increase more rapidly. You be the judge and use common sense. Healing crises are resolved with a very gradual increase in the amount taken. Be patient and persevere.
Our bodies, like the tides and the seasons, work in a gently rhythm. Try and relax into this protocol. Don’t become fanatic about it and try and avoid erratic taking of organic sulfur, which may set up an unhealthy feast-or famine cellular reaction. Ensure the recommended amount is being consumed reasonably regularly and consistently, at least twice a day.
Generalization: For a reasonably healthy adult (20 to 65 years), of about 120–140 pounds
(56–63 KG), between 5’ 4” and 5’ 8” tall (160 cm to 170 cm), with a low to moderate active life, the recommended amount after acclimatization would be 2 teaspoons (2 tsp = about 10 g) twice a day.

Pets

House pets and animals benefit greatly from organic sulfur. It can be sprinkled on their food or dissolve the organic sulfur in their water. Note that for house pets, taking organic sulfur usually will make bowel movements more frequent. As with people, the recommended amounts for pets vary greatly.

Packaging, Storage & Shelf Life

Bulk: Our product is sold in vacuum -packed 454 g(1-pound) packages. This maintains its non-contaminated purity. It has a declared shelf life of five years. Recent tests of “old product”, stored in bulk, vacuum packages, demonstrated it was effective after 10 years of dry, sealed storage. For daily use, store it in a clean glass jar on the counter. The vacuum-sealed packages don’t require special storage. ‘In a cupboard’ is good enough.
Consuming it at the rate of 1½-2 teaspoons twice a day, 1 pound (454 g) will last about 30 days, and one tablespoon twice a day will last about 24 days. Over time, it may clump up (which is natural), just break it apart into flakes when consuming it.

Hydration

Maintaining proper hydration with non-chlorine,non-fluoride, non-calcium water is very important. A person should consume about 1 liter (33 oz) of clear, pure water per 23 kg (50 lbs) of body weight per day. For example, a person who weighs 150 lbs should drink approximately 2½— 3 liters of clear, plain water a day. [Coffee, tea, beer, wine, liquor, juice, soda pop, do not qualify as ‘water’.]
Catalyst Altered Water solution with a high, stable pH (10.6) is recommended.
CAW has a molecular makeup that is similar to cellular cytoplasm, which has
wide ranging benefits related to heart mass pressure and healing.

HOW SULFUR PROTECTS US FROM CHEMTRAILS

No other element including oxygen has more of an ability to combine with other elements than sulfur due to its molecular structure. All the metals except gold and platinum combine with sulfur to form inorganic sulfides. Sulfur combines with Aluminum to form Aluminum Sulfate, it combines with Barium to form Barium Sulfate, and it combines with Strontium to form Strontium Sulfate. None of these compounds can stay in the body, they are safely removed, and so is mercury!

None of the people on the Live Blood Study who are taking organic sulfur who have had blood work done have ever had any problem with heavy metal toxicity!

UN Agenda 21 is a blueprint for population control. The elite have triggered a quantum increase in the incidence of cancer and every kind of degenerative disease by breaking the sulfur cycle in the early 1950s. Now they’re spraying us with toxic levels of heavy metals. They have found a way to reduce sperm counts, to lessen the amount of oxygen getting to our cells, and to decrease our access to essential nutrients.

Sulfur is an inexpensive FOOD, and we can use it to get off every kind of Rx drug we’re being pumped full of!

Also, cancer is a FUNGUS and can be cured NATURALLY! Salvestrols are the natural defense system in fruit and vegetables against fungal attacks and that’s why you only find them in those species subject to fungus damage, like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, blackcurrants, redcurrants, blackberries, cranberries, apples, pears, green vegetables (especially broccoli and the cabbage family), artichokes, red and yellow peppers, avocados, watercress, asparagus and aubergines.

Again, Big Pharma/Big Biotech Cartels know all this and they have done two major things to undermine this natural defense from the fungal attack that is cancer.

Cancer cells have a unique ‘biomarker’ that normal cells do not, an enzyme called CYP1B1 (pronounced sip-one-bee-one). Enzymes are proteins that ‘catalyze’ (increase the rate of) chemical reactions.

The CYP1B1 alters the chemical structure of something called salvestrols that are found naturally in many fruit and vegetables. This chemical change turns the salvestrols into an agent that kills cancer cells, but does no harm to healthy cells.

The synchronicity is perfect. The CYP1B1 enzyme appears only in cancer cells and it reacts with salvestrols in fruit and vegetables to create a chemical substance that kills only cancer cells.

  1. The chemical fungicide sprays used in modern farming kill fungus artificially and this means the plants and crops do not have to trigger their own defense – salvestrols. You only find them in any amount today in organically grown food

  2. The most widely-used fungicides are very powerful blockers of CYP1B1 and so if you eat enough chemically-produced food it wouldn’t matter how many salvestrols you consumed they would not be activated into the cancer-destroying agent they are designed to be

This is not by accident, but by calculated design, as were, and are, the attempts by the establishment to destroy Dr. Tullio Simoncini work, he is the doctor to discover that cancer is a fungus. 

The families [Rockefeller’s] want people to die of cancer, not be cured of it. They are mentally and emotionally as sick as you can imagine and see humans as sheep and cattle.

They don’t care how much distress, suffering and death their manipulation and suppression will cause – the more the better from their insane perspective. And that is what these people are… insane.

Dangers of Glyphosate (used by Monsanto, GMO) World’s #1 Herbicide Discovered in U.S. Mothers’ Breast Milk

Urine Testing also Shows Levels over 10 Times Higher than in Europe

Water Testing shows 70% of American household’s drinking water positive for above detectable levels

In the first ever testing on glyphosate herbicide in the breast milk of American women, Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse have found ‘high’ levels in 3 out of the 10 samples tested. The shocking results point to glyphosate levels building up in women’s bodies over a period of time, which has until now been refuted by both global regulatory authorities and the biotech industry.

The levels found in the breast milk testing of 76 ug/l to 166 ug/l are 760 to 1600 times higher than the European Drinking Water Directive allows for individual pesticides (Glyphosate is both a pesticide and herbicide). They are however less than the 700 ug/l maximum contaminant level (MCL) for glyphosate in the U.S., which was decided upon by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) based on the now seemingly false premise that glyphosate was not bio-accumulative.

Glyphosate-containing herbicides are the top-selling herbicides in the world and are sold under trademarks such as Monsanto’s ‘Roundup’. Monsanto’s sales of Roundup jumped 73 percent to $371 million in 2013 because of its increasing use on genetically engineered crops (GE Crops).

Breastfeeding_mom-work.jpg

The glyphosate testing commissioned by Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse, with support from Environmental Arts & Research, also analyzed 35 urine samples and 21 drinking water samples from across the US and found levels in urine that were over 10 times higher than those found in a similar survey done in the EU by Friends of the Earth Europe in 2013.

The initial testing that has been completed at Microbe Inotech Labs, St. Louis, Missouri, is not meant to be a full scientific study. Instead it was set up to inspire and initiate full peer-reviewed scientific studies on glyphosate, by regulatory bodies and independent scientists worldwide.

The initial testing was done using ELISA tests and due to a high minimum detection level in breast milk and urine, it is possible that even those samples which tested negative contained ‘worrying’ levels of glyphosate.

Moms Across America Founder and Director, Zen Honeycutt, stated Monday, “When I was told by several doctors and labs that I could not test my own or my children’s urine for the most widely used herbicide in the world over a year ago, I became determined to find a way. Parents and citizens deserve the ability to be able to take care of themselves and their families by finding out if herbicides could be impacting their health. The purpose of this glyphosate testing project is to shed light upon the presence of glyphosate in our water, children’s bodies and mother’s breast milk, hopefully inspiring further scientific studies to support the world in being a healthy, safe place to live.

“It is important to note that  the mothers and supporters who participated in this project are mostly familiar with GMOs and glyphosate. The majority of them have been trying to avoid GMOs and glyphosate for several months to two years, so the findings are alarming. We can only wonder what the levels of glyphosate are in those who are not aware of GMOs and glyphosate,” Honeycutt added.

High Glyphosate Levels – Danger for Infants?

There is currently no regulatory limit for the amount of glyphosate in breast milk anywhere in the world. However, the EPA has set a legally enforceable maximum contaminant level (MCL) for glyphosate of 700 ug/l in drinking water, which is 7,000 times higher than the MCL in Europe.

Monsanto and regulatory bodies worldwide have based all of their regulations on the assumption that glyphosate is not bio-accumulative. Senior Monsanto scientist, Dan Goldstein, even recently stated (1) , “If ingested, glyphosate is excreted rapidly, does not accumulate in body fat or tissues, and does not undergo metabolism in humans. Rather, it is excreted unchanged in the urine.”

The discovery of levels of glyphosate in breast milk that are much higher than any reported results for urine samples is a source of concern to both the general public and government regulators worldwide, as the data suggests that glyphosate is bio-accumulative; building up in people’s bodies over a period of time.

Earth Open Source Research Director Claire Robinson said, “Regulators and industry always say it is the dose that makes the poison, and even the increasing levels of glyphosate currently found in food and feed and the environment are not a problem. However, that argument only holds true if glyphosate doesn’t build up in the human body and is excreted as fast as we take it in. These breast milk results suggest glyphosate may bio-accumulate. That means that our body tissues might be exposed to higher levels than the so-called safe levels set by regulators. So the regulations are not protecting us.”

From a total of 10 samples sent in by mothers from states across the U.S., 3 women had detectable levels of glyphosate in their breast milk. The highest glyphosate level was detected in a mother from Florida (166 ug/l) and the other two mothers with ‘positive’ results were from Virginia (76 ug/l) and Oregon (99 ug/l).

Dr Angelika Hilbeck, senior scientist at the Institute of Integrative Biology in Zurich, stated,

“If confirmed in a full investigation, it seems that glyphosate has become a ubiquitous chemical in terms of presence and persistence. This data also offers a first indication of potential accumulation in the human body, giving newborns a substantial dose of synthetic chemicals as a ‘gift’ for their start into life, with unknown consequences. This is reckless and irresponsible conduct in a democratic society, which still has a living memory of previous reckless chemical contaminations, such as DDT. It seems we either did not learn, or we have forgotten, our lessons from Rachel Carson!”(2)

Honeycutt added, “Moms Across America feels very strongly that breast milk should still be the number one choice for mothers and certainly preferred over GMO soy formula ingredients. We just urge all mothers to eat as organic as possible, especially avoiding meat, dairy, oils and grains that are sprayed with glyphosate at harvest as a drying agent.”

“What we have found encouraging is that the women who have been eating organic and non-GMO food only, for several months to two years, did not find detectable levels of glyphosate in their breast milk.”

Why Are Glyphosate Levels in Urine Higher than in Europe?

In 2013 people in 18 countries across Europe were found to have traces of glyphosate in their urine by a test commissioned by Friends of The Earth Europe (3). The maximum levels of glyphosate found in the tests ranged from 0.16 ug/l in Switzerland to 1.82 ug/l in Latvia.

Shockingly, the new US testing by Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse, with support from Environmental Arts & Research, found maximum glyphosate levels in urine over 8 times higher than those found in Europe.

From the 35 samples received from across the U.S., 13 samples were above the minimum detectable level. The three highest levels were all found in women, with the highest in Oregon (18.8 ug/l). Other positive results were found in samples from the states of California, Washington, Maryland, Colorado and Hawaii.

Experts point to the GE Crop industry as being to blame for the results in both breast milk and urine, due to the amount of glyphosate used on ‘Roundup-Ready GE Crops’ in the U.S.

The U.S. has a high percentage of its farmland controlled by the GE crops industry, with many varieties of GE soybeans, GE corn, GE cotton and others, whereas Europe has only allowed one GE Crop – Monsanto’s MON810 maize – which is still not grown in most EU states due to health and environmental concerns.

A 2012 study published by Washington State University research professor Charles Benbrook (4) found that the use of glyphosate in the production of three genetically modified herbicide-tolerant crops – cotton, soybeans and corn – has increased. Benbrook’s analysis was the first peer-reviewed, published estimate of the impacts of genetically engineered (GE) herbicide-resistant (HT) crops on pesticide use.

Benbrook’s response to the findings: “Most genetically engineered soybeans now moving through trade channels worldwide contain 2 ppm to over 10 ppm of glyphosate plus its major metabolite, AMPA. These are extraordinarily high residues that raise concerns, given that many people are exposed to glyphosate through drinking water, the air, and a variety of foods. I am particularly worried by exposures during pregnancy and through the first years of a child’s life, when the risk of harm to developing organ systems is greatest. More research is urgently needed on glyphosate’s capacity to disrupt normal development,” Benbrook stated.

Glyphosate in U.S. Drinking Water

In this initial testing phase 21 samples of drinking water were tested for glyphosate from across the Unites States individually by Moms Across America supporters.

13 of the samples contained glyphosate levels of between 0.085 ug/l and 0.33 ug/l. This is well below the levels found in both urine and breast milk but is still cause for concern, as the European (EU) maximum allowed level for glyphosate in drinking water is 0.1 ug/l.

Regulatory Bodies Urged to Act – Further Testing Needed

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) and other regulatory bodies around the world are being urged to act following the release of this initial testing data, to prevent what is a dangerous public health situation.

Sustainable Pulse Director Henry Rowlands stated, “Regulatory bodies and governments worldwide need to act fast to ban all glyphosate-based herbicides as a temporary measure, while further long-term testing is completed by both them and independent scientists. This is the only way that they can regain the trust and protect the health of mothers, infants and the general public as a whole.”

“It was a huge mistake by both the U.S. government and the biotech industry to promote and release products without long-term independent studies. What we are now looking at with glyphosate-based herbicides is a similar situation to what we all faced in the 20thCentury with PCBs, DDT and Agent Orange,” Rowlands concluded.

Due to the testing results and skyrocketing health issues, as a matter of precaution, Moms Across America calls for a cease and desist of the practice of spraying glyphosate on GE foods and as a drying agent on food crops, increasing the consumption of glyphosate in our food, including but not limited to, wheat, corn, soy, sugar, rice, dry peas and beans and tea. The EPA lists over 160 foods with allowable levels of glyphosate that are unacceptable to mothers.

Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse are also calling for:

  • Adequate long-term independent testing to ensure that glyphosate herbicide formulations as sold and used are not persistent, bio-accumulative or toxic. This testing must include the outcomes most relevant to children’s health.
  • The U.S. Congress should supply funding for urgently needed long-term independent research on glyphosate herbicide formulations, including their health effects, how they get into the human body, and current levels of accumulation in people, animals and the environment. Studies performed for regulatory authorisation up until now have only tested the isolated ingredient glyphosate, not the complete formulations as sold and used, even though the formulations have been found in many studies to be much more toxic than the isolated ingredient. Also these studies are funded by the agrochemical industry, i.e. they are not independent. Finally, they are kept secret under commercial confidentiality rules, so cannot be scrutinized by independent scientists and the public.

PCB Similarities

This case of finding high levels of glyphosate in breast milk is a re-run of the Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) scandal (5) in the 1970s, which ended up in the toxic chemical compound’s production being banned by the U.S. Congress in 1979.

Before the ban Monsanto, the only North American producer, had marketed PCBs under the trade name Aroclor from 1930 to 1977 and had insisted that it was not toxic.

It was not until levels of PCBs in breast milk were found to be 10 times those in blood, obtained from residents in the Osaka Prefecture of Japan (6), that the toxicity of PCBs was questioned by regulators, leading to the 1979 ban.

According to the EPA, PCBs, which were widely used for over 40 years as dielectric and coolant fluids, have now been shown to cause cancer in humans.

Is it not time that regulators learned lessons from past mistakes?

(2) What is Glyphosate?

Glyphosate is the presumed active ingredient of Roundup and other commercial glyphosate herbicide formulations. Glyphosate was developed by John E. Franz of Monsanto Company. It was first used in 1972 as a non-selective, water-soluble herbicide with a specific mechanism of action: the directed interruption of plant development through metabolic poisoning. The chemical is a specific inhibitor of the plant enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS), which does not exist in mammals, including humans. Based on this known mechanism of toxicity, the herbicide has been claimed to have low toxicity for mammalian species. However, glyphosate and its formulations have other mechanisms of toxicity.

Monsanto’s US patent for Roundup expired in 2000 and it ceased production in 2007.  Other glyphosate herbicides manufactured by Monsanto, such as PROMAX and WeatherMAX, are in current use. Moreover, numerous generic glyphosate formulations (e.g. Clearout 41) are now produced by at least 100 manufacturers worldwide.

Glyphosate is:

#1:  A Patented Antibiotic – USPTO # 7777136. Leading to concerns about possible harm, including the killing of beneficial gut bacteria which causes immune system damage.

http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-adv.htm&r=1&p=1&f=G&l=50&d=PTXT&S1=7771736&OS=7771736&RS=7771736

#2: Chelating Agent – Although glyphosate can be rapidly immobilized in soil (also spray tank mixtures, and plants) through chelation with various cat-ions (Ca, Mg, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Zn), it is not readily degraded and can accumulate for years (in both soils and perennial plants). Glyphosate’s chelation properties may lead to possible harm such as vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

Glyphosate has been shown in several recent studies to be an endocrine disruptor.According to the National Institutes of Health, endocrine disruptors could have long-term effects on public health, especially reproductive health. And the “dose makes the poison” rule does not apply to endocrine disruptors, which wreak havoc on our bodies at low doses.

Most genetically modified (GM) crops are engineered to tolerate the herbicide Roundup, Monsanto’s best-selling product. The main active ingredient in Roundup is glyphosate. A number of glyphosate-resistant crops are also produced by Monsanto.

Health Risks

Laboratory and epidemiological studies confirm that Roundup and glyphosate pose serious health and environmental hazards, including possible endocrine (hormone) disruption, cell death, DNA damage, cancer, birth defects, and neurological disorders.

Some of these toxic effects are observed at low, realistic doses that could be found as residues in food and feed crops and in drinking water.

People are exposed to glyphosate though contaminated food, water and air, often as a result of the herbicides application to fields. This is not only the case in rural areas, where ‘Roundup Ready’ GM crops are grown on a large scale. Glyphosate-based herbicides are widely used by municipal authorities on roadsides, pavements, and in public parks and school grounds. It is also widely used by home gardeners.

Roundup and glyphosate and their residues have been detected in previous testing in air, rain, groundwater and even circulating in women’s blood.

Not Enough Safety Tests

Roundup and other glyphosate herbicide formulations as sold and used have been found in studies to be more toxic than the isolated ingredient, glyphosate. However, only glyphosate alone is tested in long-term safety tests for regulatory authorizations. This is a fundamental problem affecting all pesticide authorizations.

The ‘safe’ dose for Roundup exposure set by regulators is not based on up-to-date objective evidence. So, current regulations do not protect the public.

The chemicals used in the GM model of farming are toxic, and the model of farming itself is unsustainable and damaging to the environment – with an increase in herbicides significantly increasing pollution and health risks for citizens, and contributing to biodiversity loss. The only people who stand to gain from this model are those that produce the herbicide-resistant crop the chemicals required to grow them.

The only people who stand to gain from this model are those that produce the herbicide-resistant crops and the chemicals required to grow them.

(3) Quotes from Scientists on Testing

Dr. Don M. Huber, Professor Emeritus, Purdue University.
“It is well established in the scientific literature that glyphosate disrupts the endocrine hormone system, and is toxic to liver and kidney tissues, a strong mineral chelator, and a potent antibiotic that kills essential microorganisms in the gastro-intestinal tract.  The levels observed in breast milk and urine in this preliminary survey indicate that intake of this chronic toxin is highly biologically significant and almost 100 times the amounts documented in peer-reviewed scientific studies to cause birth defects, kidney and liver damage, hormonal disruption, and predispose to cancer. Much higher levels of glyphosate in breast milk than urine indicate a concentration factor that can especially compromise the health and development of an infant through direct toxicity, deprivation of essential mineral nutrients, and dysbiosis of the microbiome essential for immune, neural and physical development. Additional testing is essential to confirm the validity of this data on a larger scale if we are to avoid compromising the health and well-being of an entire generation.”

Jack Heinemann, Professor of genetics and molecular biology in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.

“We have an inadequate knowledge of the effects of real life exposures to the many potentially and actually toxic chemicals that are part of daily modern life. This snapshot of just one pervasive chemical, glyphosate, in the fluids of human bodies is therefore important and timely. No single study of this type or scale is enough to determine if this chemical alone or in combination with the many other “approved as safe if exposed below certain amounts” cause harm. But that this study was initiated by a grassroots campaign rather than government or funded by the industries that profit from mass release of these compounds, says to me how neglected this area of public good research is.

“Glyphosate was measured in parts per billion in urine and breast milk. Are these levels too low to cause harm in people after a lifetime of constant low level exposure? Possibly, but possibly not.

“What does this mean for women who choose to breastfeed? In my opinion, the many good things that breastfeeding does for babies far outweighs the risk of the low level exposures to this pesticide. But it is also my opinion that, until such low level exposures to nursing babies can be determined to be safe there should be an obligation placed on the pesticide industry and the relevant government agencies to reduce exposures that are sufficient to cause accumulation of the pesticide in breast milk.

“Urban lawns and roadsides as well as the farm in America and many other places have become addicted to these agrochemicals. There is far too little emphasis on providing services to agriculture that reduce this dependency and too much emphasis on innovation dependent upon it. Let’s wean the farmer from these chemicals rather than our babies from their milk.”- Heinemann

 Anthony Samsel, a former private environmental U.S. government contractor as well as a member of the Union of Concerned Scientists

“Everyone eating the western diet of food grown, sprayed and desiccated with Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide can expect to find its active ingredient glyphosate in their body. Glyphosate chelates chemical elements important to our existence, disrupts vitamin synthesis and detoxification enzymes like glutathione and CYP 450 enzymes, as well as many essential amino acids. Glyphosate is an antibiotic, capable of killing hundreds of species of bacteria which are directly responsible for our immune function and overall health. It is a chronic toxin, a chemical weapon like no other, which is capable of killing organisms both directly and indirectly. Monsanto’s Roundup-glyphosate based herbicide may in fact be, the most disruptive chemical to our biology and our environment.

“The glyphosate in humans data recently collected from volunteers across the USA serves as a snapshot of the general population… Breast milk samples contained levels from 76 to 166 ug/L, levels that can cause harm. The thought of babies receiving glyphosate through their mother’s milk is particularly troubling as it demonstrates that there is no escape from this antibiotic chemical.

“If the HPLC method was used (High Pressure Liquid Chromatography), it would have yielded an increased statistical result, as this method has a lower range of detection.  However, there is a higher cost associated with the method which would have made it prohibitive for many participants.  The result of my own urine test in this group was below the detection level, as were over 50% of the participants. Dietary exposure is an obvious function in this regard. Not all glyphosate ingested is passed in the urine and feces, a small portion is metabolized to AMPA another toxin. The remainder of the glyphosate continues to circulate in the blood and cerebral fluid where it travels to the cells and causes cumulative, chronic damage. It is deposited in the body’s tissues which include but are not limited to the liver, kidneys, pancreas, heart and other muscles.

“We have got to get glyphosate out of the food supply. Our health and the health of those we love may be in grave danger from exposure to this chemical. It is urgent that people know and time is of the essence. Every moment lost will be a new health casualty.”- Samsel

(4)  Quotes from Mothers on Testing

Jessica M. from Virginia:

“It is frightening to see any glyphosate in my body, especially in my breast milk that will then contaminate my son’s growing body. It’s particularly upsetting to test positive for glyphosate because I go to great lengths to eat organic and GMO free. I do not consume any meats or seafood and only very rarely eat dairy. This really shows me, and should show others, just how pervasive this toxin is in our food system.”

Rachel T. from Illinois:

“I tested negative. I am relieved to know that the time, money, and effort we have spent to source good quality, organic, GMO-free food over the past several years has paid off. This should offer hope and encouragement to many families; that what we eat truly does affect us. I hope that someday in the future the knowledge of how to source these foods becomes more main stream so that others can benefit and heal their bodies from the countless health problems caused by GMO laden foods.”

GlyphosateUsage2009.png

Moms Across America discovered that the quantity of local glyphosate spraying at farms does NOT correlate to positive or negative glyphosate detectable levels in mothers, suggesting the glyphosate is coming from another source, such as national brands of food, which are not connected to local environmental conditions. Manufacturers must be responsible and conduct further testing.

(5)  Similar testing on Urine in Europe

Two full-scale glyphosate testing projects have been carried out in Europe over the last year on urine in humans.

The first was organized by Friends of the Earth Europe and the second was led by Dr. Monika Krüger of the University of Leipzig in Germany.

When looking at the data from both of these tests please keep in mind that the U.S glyphosate testing has already detected glyphosate levels in urine of between 8.1 ug/l and 18.8 ug/l with a much smaller survey.

Determination of Glyphosate residues in human urine samples from 18 European countries: (Medical Laboratory Bremen commissioned by Friends of the Earth Europe)

http://www.gmoevidence.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/glyphosate_studyresults_june12.pdf

In this study, 182 urine samples received from 18 European countries were analyzed for glyphosate and AMPA residues using a new GC-MSMS method. With a LOQ of 0.15 ug/l, on average 44 % and 36 % of the urine samples analyzed were found to contain quantifiable levels of glyphosate and AMPA, respectively. However the frequency of detection calculated for each individual EU-state ranged from 10% to 90%. The highest glyphosate concentration was 1.8 ug/L (Latvia), the highest AMPA concentration was 2.6 ug/L (Croatia). All in all 12 (6.6%) participants of the study significantly exceeded the tentative reference value of 0.8 ug/L for glyphosate.

Detection of Glyphosate Residues in Animals and Humans: Dr. Monika Krüger

http://omicsonline.org/open-access/detection-of-glyphosate-residues-in-animals-and-humans-2161-0525.1000210.pdf

In this study glyphosate residues were tested in urine and different organs of dairy cows as well as in urine of hares, rabbits and humans using ELISA and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS). Cows kept in genetically modified free area had significantly lower glyphosate concentrations in urine than conventional husbandry cows. Also glyphosate was detected in different organs of slaughtered cows as intestine, liver, muscles, spleen and kidney. Fattening rabbits showed significantly higher glyphosate residues in urine than hares.

Glyphosate was significantly higher in the urine of humans who didn’t eat organic food. Furthermore, chronically ill humans showed significantly higher glyphosate residues in urine than in the healthy population.

The glyphosate levels detected Kruger’s study were all under 2 ug/l in human urine.

(6) Independent Science on Glyphosate

There have been a large number of independent studies carried out on glyphosate and Roundup which show why the public and media should be concerned over the possible harm that the herbicide is causing.

The Sri Lankan President has put a ban on all glyphosate-based pesticides following this study.

The study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health links glyphosate (Roundup) to a series of mysterious epidemics of fatal chronic kidney disease of unknown origin (CKDu) affecting several poor farming regions around the world. The current death toll from CKDu is 20 000 and the number of those with the disease number over 400 000.

2012: Teratogenic Effects of Glyphosate-Based Herbicides: Divergence of Regulatory Decisions from Scientific Evidence: Dr. Michael Antoniou (UK)

Malformations were seen from the administration of glyphosate to rabbits and rats in studies commissioned by industry for regulatory purposes. These effects were not found only at high maternally toxic doses but also at lower doses. Statistical significance was not always achieved at lower doses because too few animals are used in such tests. “Historical control data” and other excuses were used to dismiss the findings.

2004: Neural Tube Defects and Maternal Residential Proximity to Agricultural Pesticide Applications: Dr. Rull (US)

This study evaluated the effects of maternal environmental exposure to 59 agricultural pesticides on neural tube defects (NTDs) in babies born in California between 1987 and 1991. Maternal residential proximity within 1,000 meters of crop pesticide applications occurring around the month of conception was assessed using a model based on linking California Pesticide Use Reports (PUR) and land-use survey maps. The study found an association between glyphosate exposure and anencephaly, a type of neural tube defect.

2007: Evaluation of DNA damage in an Ecuadorian population exposed to glyphosate: Dr. Paz-y-Miño (Ecuador)

Ecuadorian people exposed to aerial glyphosate herbicide spraying on coca crops showed a much higher degree of DNA damage in blood cells than a control population living 80 km away. The researchers ruled out tobacco, alcohol, non-prescription drugs and asbestos as causes. None of the individuals had used or been exposed to other herbicides or pesticides when the samples were taken. The study also found acute poisoning reactions to the glyphosate spraying, including intestinal pain and vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, heart palpitations, headaches, dizziness, numbness, insomnia, burning eyes, blurred vision, difficulty in breathing, and skin rash.

http://www.gmoseralini.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Benachoural.AECT_2007.pdf

In these in vitro experiments, glyphosate was found to be toxic to human placental cells and Roundup formulation was more toxic. Glyphosate and Roundup damaged human embryonic cells and placental cells in vitro in concentrations well below those recommended for agricultural use. The study’s authors concluded that Roundup may interfere with human reproduction and embryonic development.

(7) Testing Method

Glyphosate Testing Method: Glyphosate Plate Assay

The testing of drinking water, urine and breast milk was carried out by Microbe Inotech Laboratories, Inc. (MiL inc.)

For the detection and quantitation of glyphosate in water (groundwater, surface water, well water), urine and breast milk, the MiL inc. uses a 96 well microtiter plate assay.  For soil, crop, and foods, additional preparation steps are required but can be processed at a small additional fee.  This assay applies the principles of enzyme linked immunosorbent assay methodology (ELISA) to the determination of glyphosate.

The sample to be tested is derivatized and then added, along with an antibody (binding protein) specific for glyphosate to microtiter wells coated with Goat Anti-Rabbit Antibody and incubated for 30 minutes.  A glyphosate enzyme conjugate is then added.

This particular format is known as a competitive ELISA assay since, at this point in the procedure, a competitive reaction occurs between the glyphosate which may be in the sample and the enzyme labeled glyphosate analog for the antibody binding sites on the microtiter well.

The reaction is allowed to continue for sixty minutes.  After a washing step and addition of a substrate (color solution), a color signal (blue color) is generated.  The presence of glyphosate is detected by adding the “Color Solution”, which contains the enzyme substrate (hydrogen peroxide) and the chromogen (3,3’,5,5’-tetramethylbenzidine).  The enzyme-labeled glyphosate bound to the glyphosate antibody catalyzes the conversion of the substrate/chromogen mixture to a colored product.

After an incubation period, the reaction is stopped and stabilized by the addition of a diluted acid (Stopping Solution).  Since the labeled glyphosate (conjugate) was in competition with the unlabelled glyphosate (sample) for the antibody sites, the color developed is inversely proportional to the concentration of glyphosate in the sample.

Six concentrations (0, 0.75, 0.2, 0.5, 1.0, 4.0 ppb) of glyphosate standards in distilled water with a non-mercury preservative and stabilizers are used to generate a standard response curve.  A control solution at approximately 0.75 ppb of glyphosate is included in every run and treated in the same manner as unknown samples to serve as a positive control within the assay.  The color absorbance is read using a microplate reader (see Figure).

Any results obtained with a calculated glyphosate concentration of less than 0.05 ppb is assumed to be below the detection limit of the assay with glyphosate reported as being absent (7.5 ppb detection limit for Urine) (75 ppb detection limit for Breast Milk).

The highlighted urine glyphosate test results are after a positive glyphosate result in initial testing of one family member and then 2-6 weeks of switching to 100% organic diet. The negative detection of glyphosate coincides with the disappearance of recorded inflammation and autism symptoms in the 8 year old boy after 6 weeks of an organic diet and 2 weeks of Reverse Osmosis Filtered water which tested negative for detectable levels of glyphosate.

Hello and welcome! I am very excited to share with you my knowledge, most of which is through my own life’s experiences but also from my studies. This blog is dedicated to health,mind & body healing connections. Here is the link to my Health Coach Website where you can read about my story on the final straw that brought me to holistic health care.
