The cancer-causing chemical azodicarbonamide (used in yoga mats) is found in nearly 500 grocery store items

Azodicarbonamide considered as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by FDA is commonly used as bleaching agent in baking white bread, cakes and pastries. Azodicarbonamide improves the flour’s strength and elasticity and helps to keep the bread soft and fresh, even after many days. Azodicarbonamide is also used in making yoga mats and as a foaming agent in plastic and rubber industry.

roundup-herbicide-glyphosate-atrazine-pesticide-found-in-rain-air-samples

Thanks to giant biotech and chemical companies, Glyphosate and pesticides like atrazine are raining down on us

According to a research by US Geological Survey, pesticides and agrochemicals have ended up in our air and rain samples and glyphosate pollution continues to rise in Mississippi River. Also a recent study published in the journal of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry has released data comparing pesticide content in rain samples of Mississippi between the year 1995 and 2007. According to researchers, in 1995, seven different pesticides were found in more than 50% of rain samples, and in 2007, five pesticides were found in more than 50% of rain samples. The 2007 samples contained glyphosate (the main ingredient in Roundup), metolachlor, propanil, atrazine, and gyphosate’s derivative, AMPA and glyphosate was found in more than 75% of rain samples. ... roundup-herbicide-glyphosate-atrazine-pesticide-found-in-rain-air-samples

Sri Lanka joins El Salvador in banning herbicide Roundup linked to a wide range of diseases including fatal chronic kidney disease

Sri Lanka joins El Salvador in banning herbicide Roundup linked to a wide range of diseases including fatal chronic kidney disease

Both countries of Sri Lanka and El Salvador are now moving forward in banning Monsanto’s popular weedkiller Roundup, after a recent study linked Roundup to chronic kidney disease. Fatal Chronic Kidney Disease (CKDu) is the second leading cause of death among males in poor regions of Sri Lanka, and in El Salvador. According to a new study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, the active ingredient in Roundup known as glyphosate becomes highly toxic when mixed with ‘hard’ water or heavy metals like arsenic or cadmium that naturally exists within the soil or added as fertilizer ...Sri Lanka joins El Salvador in banning herbicide Roundup linked to a wide range of diseases including fatal chronic kidney disease

High level of pesticides, toxins and heavy metals in non-organic foods, superfoods and herbs imported from China

Countless numbers of research and studies have confirmed that most conventionally-grown herbs imported from China have high levels of heavy metals and residue of toxic pesticide in them. With the growing interest for healthy lifestyle in Western societies, the import of Chinese herbs has grown rapidly to 2.3 billion dollars in just 2011, with an annual increase rate of 36.48% compared to last year. However, a recent research by Greenpeace has revealed that non-organic Chinese herbs sold in North America and Europe have alarming levels of pesticides and heavy metals that exceed the maximum allowable limits in Europe. “Honeysuckle China purchased in Canada even reached the second largest product containing the most pesticides”, says Eric Darier, the campaigner on sustainable agriculture Greenpeace International ... cancer-casuing-chemicals-toxic-ingredients-in-deodorants-antiperspirants

Although there are still people who regard climate change as a hoax (despite the fact that glaciers are melting in an alarming rate), more and more people in the world are becoming aware that the rapid changes in the climate is real. 90% of scientific studies all agree that climate change is real and in fact, according to a recent study published in journal Science, with title of “Global Warming and This Winter’s Cold Weather,” the researchers say that human-induced global warming is happening and without mitigating measures, the Earth will continue to get warmer over the next century with serious consequences ... factory-farms-extensive-use-of-chemicals-pesticides-are-major-contributors-to-climate-change-greenhouse-gasses

More and more studies are revealing the fact that biotech toxic pesticides and herbicides are bio-accumulating in our bodies and effecting our health and longevity long-term.

New study suggests that Monsanto’s popular weedkiller Roundup is linked to fatal kidney disease (CKDu)

A recent study published in the British medical journal (BMJ) Quality & Safety, concludes that one in 20 patient or 12 million adults who visit doctors in US are being misdiagnosed annually. According to researchers, most medical errors (such as delayed cancer diagnoses or unnecessary surgeries) could lead to serious health issues and chronic conditions. Keep in mind that conventional medical system is one of the leading causes of deaths in the United States. In US alone, annually 12,000 people die due to unnecessary surgeries, 7,000 people die due to medical errors, 20,000 people die due to other errors, 80,000 people die from infections acquired at the hospitals and 106,000 people die from adverse side effect of medications ... 12-million-people-in-US-are-misdiagnosed-annually-nutrition-healthcare

CDC records show a culprit for stomach-flu after 4,600 outbreaks: about 50% are caused by norovirus, a highly contagious bug transmitted often through restaurant waiters or food handlers

Foodborne illnesses are among one of the major priorities in United States since they can be a major threat to the health of its citizens as well as causing negative economical effects, which combined, place it at a high national security threat. These illnesses are acquired through foods and food handling and it is generally regarded as preventable (mostly), if the regulations and the practices are adhered to. There is however only so much United States can do if food is also imported from other countries, which is often the case. One thing that can be regulated better is the food distribution practices and the labor force handling of food ... Seattle Restaurants

Like bees and butterflies, lady bugs are also an important part of our ecosystem and are essential to the biodiversity of our food supply. "Lady Bugs are tremendous carnivores that can eat lots of significant agricultural pests including aphides and mites without posing other risk to human health” says Doug Taron, curator of biology at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Chicago.

Chemotherapy and FDA-approved anti-tumor drugs can backfire by inducing the growth of cancer cells, recent studies suggest

A team of researchers led by Harvard Medical School and University of Massachusetts Amherst have discovered that anti-tumor drugs like chemotherapy have the opposite effect on stem cells, causing them to divide too rapidly and spread out in the body. The paper is published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. According to researchers, the anti-tumor drugs including chemotherapy (that initially might seem effective in eliminating cancer cells), will eventually backfire by causing even more cancer ... chemotherapy-FDA-approved-anti-tumor-drugs-can-backfire-by-inducing-growth-of-cancer-cells
