Recently, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Review of Cancer declared that glyphosate – the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s bestselling weedkiller Roundup – was a “probable carcinogen” and linked to cancer in humans.

Each year more than 280 million pounds of glyphosate are sprayed on farmers’ fields across the country, and the U.S. Geological Survey has found glyphosate in more than 75% of air, rain and stream samples taken across the Midwest.

In addition to being linked to cancer, numerous studies have connected glyphosate with liver and kidney disease, and being responsible for wiping out more than 90% of the monarch butterfly population.

Now, the state of California has gotten involved and its Environmental Protection Agency has said that it intends to declare that glyphosate “causes cancer”.

Yes, that it CAUSES CANCER.

This would be a huge blow to Monsanto and would add to the existing lawsuits against the company, which claim that glyphosate has caused these individuals cancer.

Not only that, this would be a massive step in increasing transparency in our food supply. Consumers would be much better informed about the type of food that they are putting into their bodies.

As I mentioned above, the state of California intends to declare that glyphosate causes cancer, and it is not a done deal yet.  Today is the last day the state is receiving comments about this issue, and it is essential that you allow your voice to be heard.

So, please tell the state of California today to label glyphosate as a cancer-causing chemical by clicking HERE.

Thank you so much for your concern.

  • Odom almost cost us the game and we shouldnt say anything? Our defense was all around bad again except from some plays..Kobe 4th Q heroics saved the day again.anyone recognising a pattern hier? How are we different from last year? It is really not too early in the season , something needs to change.At times in the 4th when we played 1on1 D we did much better than trapping and rotating.

  • I’m not sure what you mean by “always been familiar”? Harvest came out on Valentine’s Day, 1972; you were 7. Do you mean you were listening to bootlegs before you ever heard Harvest?Correct, of course, about only 90 seconds being “ruined”: though some might argue that ruins the song (in the same way that Tom Morello’s cheesy guitar solo nearly ruins “Killing in the Name Of”).

  • That is so sad. I’m sorry for your loss. I’ve gone through it a couple of times. Last timek, it was my 12 year old cairn terrier, “Becky.” She had kidney and liver failure and was going downhill fast. We had her euthanized and she died in my arms. I can’t even describe the sadness I felt then.Our current pet, who we found on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere as a puppy, is now between 10 and 11 years old. I don’t even like to think of the fact that she too won’t be with us much longer. Again…so sorry about Tucker.Kmi

  • nikinikajBrittany, my luv, have i told you how much I FRKN LUVVV YOUR VID!?!?!!!!! And in case you have not heard it lately: YOU ARE THE SHIZ!!! THE WAY YOU PUT THIS ALL TOGETHER – SKILLS GIRL, SKILLS :O)

  • It’s always a relief when someone with obvious expertise answers. Thanks!

  • Craig says:

    Excellent job informing us of this. I mentioned this day to dozens of people to comment on the California issue. The tide is shifting in favor of non-GMOs.

  • Jerry says:

    Guess what, the same group that declared glyphosate causes cancer declared that red meat does the same. Remember folks, the dose makes the poison. Something may cause harm at high concentrations in artificial systems. This does not correspond to real life risk. Be smart with science.

  • Darla says:

    The public deserves a vote in its favor. And, we deserve a voice!!!

  • William Brice says:

    Please no more toxins in our food and ground!

  • Alex Jones says:

    In Western Australia, we look to California as a leader in the protection of public health and the natural environment. Your Health Department’s Pesticide Emergency, recognizes Pesticide Illness, its flu-like symptoms, its acute and often life-threatening adverse effects. Armed with the scientific evidence that various cancers and neurological diseases are linked to many pesticides, even the falsely claimed ‘safe’ and ubiquitous herbicide, “Glyphosate”, please act in the public interest. Do the right thing! Our kids and theirs will thank you!

    Ban or properly label these toxic products so that there will be no doubt in people’s mind that they can cause chronic and life- threatening illnesses.

  • Sharesa says:

    What I do not understand is why “we” are even wasting time discussing this!! Come on people this is a “NO Brainer” as my son would say!!! Other countries have already banned this OR never even considered it an option!? What does this say about “US”???? It is obvious! I Have the constitutional right to decide what I eat and to know what is “IN” the food I eat. PLEASE stop the use of Round up in our city, state, Country! Thank you!

  • D Bedard says:

    I hope this happens because we all need to clean up our eating habits and this is a good start.

  • Bianca says:

    My stepdad would get sick every time the council came round the streets to sparay the council lawn strip. GET RID OF THE TOXINS PEOPLE

  • Judy says:

    My health soon began to recovery when I eliminated GMO foods completely. I have no doubt that my digestive disease was a consequence of glyphosate. It is with no hyperbole that I urge you for the health of our nation, the world and all babies and children exposed to glyphosate it it imperative to remove it from our food supply. It is a scientific and moral imperative. I urge you to do the right thing.

  • Julie says:

    GMO’s are made in labs not nature. Herbicide use has increased by 527 million pounds from 1996 to 2011. Farmers must now spray more and more toxic chemicals on their crops.
    There is absolutely no scientific proof that GMO’s are safe to people and the planet. Companies that manufacture GMO crops conduct their own research and provide it to the USDA. At present, there is no multi-generational, unbiased evidence confirming beyond a doubt that GMO foods are safe for humans.
    Please DO NOT participate in the destruction of human health and the planet.

  • Martha Garriott says:

    Please help us to get these dangerous chemicals off the market! At the very keast give us more control.

  • Bobbie says:

    Lead the way California!!!!!! Who really benefits from poisoning our food and water and planet? Follow the money trail!! I strongly suggest watching the docu-series now playing by Ty Bollinger called A cure for Cancer -A global Quest.. Very eye opening!!! If that doesn’t shake you up enough watch Food Inc! Get informed and take action do not support Monsanto -shut them down! Do not buy anything that is not labeled -period!!!

  • Rosaria mercado says:

    We need to get back to the right away to make food. With people in mind.

  • Susan King says:

    Ban glyphosate. Possibly the biggest threat to our food and our survival.

  • Robert Kahn, M.D. says:

    As a pediatric oncology safety scientist with a large biotech (in San Francisco and Basel, Switzerland), I am keenly aware that the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon, France has published that Glyphosate has been linked to tumors in mice and rats — and there is also what the IARC classifies as ‘mechanistic evidence’, such as DNA damage to human cells from exposure to glyphosate. (ref: Scientific American, 25 March, 2015)
    It is not part of the IARC’s process to quantify any increased risk of cancer due to a chemical, or to recommend a safe exposure level, although its studies can be influential. Rather, regulatory agencies around the world will have to decide what to do with the agency’s finding. The Environmental Protection Agency is currently conducting a formal review of the safety of glyphosate (which it does not consider carcinogenic in humans) and said that it would give “full consideration” to the IARC study.
    As part of the effort to achieve further review, it is essential to lend our strong support to the legislative process in California as we await the regulatory process to proceed at it’s usual glacial pace.

  • Michelle Jack says:

    Please take poisons out of our food like glyphosate in Roundup. We deserve clean food.

  • Benjamin R Harris says:

    Poisoning our bodies, our food, our environment, and our planet is simply not acceptable. Not only should California acknowledge that glyphosate causes cancer, but the entire nation should do the same. Glyphosate should be banned for all possible uses.

  • Valerie Brackett says:

    We have a right to have healthy non-poisoned food! Who wants round-up in their food?

  • Eco Patrol says:

    Monsanto you have caused lots of havoc on planet Earth. This is NOT your planet! Humans do not own the Earth nor do you have the right to destroy it because of greed. Polluting other innocent beings bodies is not an OPTION anymore. You will be stopped! Your not GOD! How dare you destroy the Earth and the lives of many beautiful beings on this planet. Stop causing this unnecessary pain and health effects in lives. We hope your Karma is close.

  • Fran Salisbury says:

    It is imperative that glyphosate is banned now as DDT was banned in the past… for the same reasons!

  • Connie Long says:

    Please remove carcinogens and toxins from our food! And we have the right to know!

  • Margie says:

    Please stop the poisoning of our food.

  • Gary Favero says:

    Please get rid of these carcinogens and toxins in
    our food.I don’t want to die making someone
    else rich.

  • Erika Knowles says:

    Please label we have the right to know.

  • Victoria Gustafson says:

    Indeed, all consumers have the right to know exactly what is in the foods the we buy.

  • Cindy says:

    I hope the State will do the right thing. Consumers have the right to know.

  • Joy says:

    Please help protest our future and stop contaminating our lives with roundup.
