Is The Alkaline/Acid Theory A Scientific Myth?


There is NO ALKALINE/ACID MYTH!
The human body in its perfect health (pH) is alkaline by design although acidic by function.
There is only one sickness, one disease and one treatment. The one sickness and one disease is the over-acidification of the blood and then tissues due to an inverted way of living, eating and thinking.
The one treatment is to prevent and/or reverse any acidic condition or sickness and disease by restoring the body's alkaline design with an alkaline lifestyle and diet.
The restoration of the alkaline design of the body to perfect heatlh (pH) is accomplished in four steps:
1) Open the channels of elimination - urination, perspiration, defecation and respiration.
2) Detox the congestion and constipation of the crypts of the intestinal villi where stem cells and new blood are made.
3) Build healthy stem cells and new blood with your 4 new food groups, chlorophyll, oil, water and salt, I call this the COWS food plan.
4) And finally, hyper-perfuse the tissues via the blood with alkalinity (alkaline mineral salts such as sodium and potassium bicarbonate) to buffer tissue acidosis which will provide an alkaline environment for the healthy regeneration and restoration of organs, tissues and glands.

Glenn Stone's pH Miracle for Cancer Story


Glenn Stone’s pH Miracle Story
I was born August 22nd 1956 in Brooklyn, New York as a completely healthy baby. According to my mom at 11 months I spoke a few words and was crawling without any challenges. At 15 months old I had a complete vocabulary and was already walking normally. At 18 months I developed (hosted) baby Roseola and ran a high fever of 104 degrees F for three days straight. During that time the doctors told my parents to place me into cold baths and keep cold cloths on my joints and body several times a day.
After the baby Roseola, for the next 2 years western medicine tried to figure out what was wrong with me. They labeled me with the possibility of MS (Multiple Sclerosis), Cerebal Palsey, and other neuromuscular diseases. At approximately 24 months old I was walking up a flight of stairs and my mom noticed that I was limping and asked me if I had any pain. I replied: What is pain? My mom explained to me that it was a burning, aching, pulling, stabbing or sharp feeling and I said it was all of those things.
At the age of 3 my mom took me to the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. She reported to the Dr. that I had pain, inflammation and swelling in all of my major joints. They then recommended a specialist in rheumatology. Dr. Roguff ordered a Sed Rate and RH-Factor test of my blood. Both were high off the charts positive. I was then diagnosed me with JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis). The treatment for JRA in 1959 was unfortunately the same as it is now. High doses of anti-inflammatory medication, auto-immune builders, and cortisone.
Also at 3 years of age, the Doctors immediately put me on highly acidic St. Joseph’s chewable aspirin for children: 8 at a time, 5 times a day for a total of 40 pills a day. One year later they increased the dose from 8 to 12 pills at a time for a total of 60 pills a day. They continued this dosage until I was finally able to swallow Bayer aspirins and it was 2 of them every 3-4 hours. This later on all proved to wreak havoc on my entire digestive system. At age 5-8 years old they were giving me gold injections, yes that’s real gold, one CC of it in the hip once a month. Luckily for me the nurse was really cute but the injection really hurt and took almost a half hour to administer. At about 8 ½ years old we were up visiting my grandparents in the Catskill mountains in Mountaindale, New York after finishing a passover dinner I complained to my parents that I had a slight belly ache. The slight belly ache turned out to be an appendix that was about to burst inside of me.
After I complained about the belly ache, my mom proceeded to put a heating pad on my belly and giving me milk of magnesia. Unknowingly, both of these remedies made the situation a lot worse. When the pain got worse for me my mom knew that if I complained about it, something was really seriously wrong, due to my high pain tolerance. She called the local doctor and this countryman came in wearing his pajamas and slippers. He proceeded to do a rectal appendix test with his finger and said that the appendix was extremely swollen and ready to burst. My mom paged the doctors at HSS and asked them if we could drive back to the city from the Catskills, which was about a 2 ½ hour drive at night, safely enough for them to treat me. The doctor in the Catskills told my primary doctors that he felt that I would not make the trip back. My parents agreed to take me to the local hospital where they are really equipped for skiing, hiking and outdoor accidents. My parents were concerned about their ability to deal with an erupting appendix. By the time I got to the hospital the pain had quadrupled and my blood test showing that it was appendicitis. They immediately prepped me for surgery. During the surgery the appendix blew up and I had a drain in the side of my chest for almost 4 weeks. The best thing about this was my Aunt and Uncle drove up that night with Rockem Sockem robots for me to play with at the hospital. Later on western medicine figured out that the gold shots blew up my appendix. That put an end to the gold shots. They then started to put me on cortisone for the inflammation and pain. The cortisone made my body, face, hands and arms look like somebody hooked me up to an airpump and blew me up.
For the next few years western medicine had been increasing my anti-inflammatory “acidic” medication and cortisols. When I was 10 years old my mom and dad took me off all the cortisones and for the next few years I continued to take the other acidic medications. Later that year we moved out of Brooklyn to New Jersey so that I could attend school without having to walk up and down stairs with crutches. All of the public schools either had an elevator or were single floor. At age 13 my body went through puberty and the Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis symptoms seemed to dissipate but I was left with all of the deformities.
For most of my high school years I had bleeding ulcers, continual heartburn and was diagnosed with reflux esophagitis and I had difficulties swallowing. As a byproduct I became anemic. The doctors gave me iron pills which caused chronic constipation and rectal bleeding. It took three hiatal hernia repair surgeries to alleviate many of my symptoms. I was in intensive care for most of my seven week stay. The third operation was done by a specialist in Boston who invented the Nissen Wrap. During this time I also had the Gastroenterologist continually dilate my esophagus by inserting mercury filled rubber tubes down my esophagus to keep it open enough for me to swallow food. My doctor also advised that I drink chocolate and vanilla milkshakes with raw egg for energy and to neutralize the acid in my stomach and esophagus. All this did was create more mucus, more congestion and more health challenges. They kept trying to treat the symptoms instead of getting to the root cause.
Throughout my high school and college years, the Orthopedic Doctors put me on pain narcotics such as Tylenol-3 and Percocet to alleviate my functional pain and inflammation due to the deformities in my body. No one told me at this point that all I needed to do was to take different kinds of healthy oils to lubricate my joints.
At 17 years of age I drove a regular car with no special equipment and in 1974 I attended Rutgers University studying pre-medicine. I dropped out of college my third year because I did not want to be associated with the doctors of the future. I then went on to become an entrepreneur and established my own sound, communications and DJ company. In March of 1982 I met my significant other and soul partner Lori Gilmore and by September 10th 1984 I was engaged to be married.
I brought Lori to my yearly checkup to meet my Orthopedic Surgeon from 1962 to 1986 whose Father pioneered the first total hip replacement in the United States. He recommended two total hip replacements because my hips were locking every time I went to the bathroom or bent over, and to be able to easily perform sexually. I had two total hip replacements and was up walking with crutches in two weeks. I was featured in the New York Times magazine May 5th 1985 in an article titled “Redesigning Human Bones”. Both surgeries were performed in record time. Just when I thought I was ready to start my new life with Lori, on the day of discharge a resident Orthopedist working four days straight without sleep dropped me off of an X-Ray table during my final X-Ray and broke the right thigh completely in half. It took five major procedures over the course of one year for me to recover. During one of the procedures they put me into skeletal traction and a full body cast which caused me to eat and drink laying down which re-aggravated my esophagus. In order to take me home for the summer in a body cast, Lori had to learn how to give me high doses of Morphine Sulfate injections seven to nine times a day. In 1986 Lori and I made a dream come true by committing our lives to each other and I was able to stand for the entire ceremony.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is when I met Dr. Young and started making major shifts in my life.
In 1998 I went to an Anthony Robbins seminar and little did I know my life would never be the same again. In addition to doing a 10 foot hot coal firewalk, transformation was about to begin for Lori and I. We were taught a paradigm shift about our lifestyle and diet. We went from eating the Standard American (SAD) diet to starting a 10 day challenge where Lori and I moved away from all animal products, dairy, sugars and processed foods. We continued to live on a fruit and vegetable way of living and we never felt better. I was now able to cut my pain medication from 480mg a day to less than 200 mg a day. I also resigned from going to a pain psychologist and neurologist and told them it was time to take charge of my own health. Later on that year in September at another Anthony Robbins Event called Life Mastery, Tony introduced us to Shelley and Dr. Robert O. Young. Tony asked Dr. Young to demonstrate microscopy personally on Lori and I. Dr. Young did my live and dry blood and told me I was loaded with yeast, fungus and mold. My colon was a mess and that my esophagus had a lot of inflammation. From looking at my blood, he suggested that I eliminate the sweet fruits and carbohydrates that were feeding the yeast and go on an alkaline lifestyle and diet. I was feeling so good that I did not listen. Lori on the other hand, embraced the program, started drinking the greens and other supplements that Dr. Young had created and ran the New York City marathon with only two months training from Stu Mittleman. Six months later I had blood in my stool and food got stuck in my esophagus. I was rapidly losing weight and it was apparent that anything I was eating was not being assimilated or eliminated properly. Anthony Robbins found out about my situation through a mutual friend and called us. Using the power of questions Tony convinced me to go into the hospital to use western medicine for diagnostics and to get my essential body fluids back to normal. He also suggested that we contact Dr. Young to offer us support and guidance. In the hospital I was diagnosed with Digestive Failure/Stage 4 Colon Cancer and Stage 3 Esophogeal Cancer. I went from a 34 inch waste down to a 28 inch waste and from 134 lbs down to 65 lbs. I literally looked like a skeleton. Dr. Young suggested that we get Glenn strong enough so he can leave the hospital and start a 100% alkalizing program. The treatment suggested by my gastroenterologist and nutritionist was chemical therapy (chemo), radiation and a colostomy bag. When we declined this treatment and were ready to check ourselves out of the hospital they would only allow us to do so after we agreed to be seen by a hospital psychiatrist and take full legal responsibility for signing ourselves out. Lori had to borrow another patients wheelchair in order to transport me from the hospital bed to the car. Upon leaving, the Gastroenterologist admitted that Dr. Young’s colloidal liquid lightning vitamin and mineral drops as well as alkalizing supplements kept me alive and sustained me during this hospital stay. Once we left I immediately started drinking and eating 100% alkaline liquids: soups, shakes, smoothies and a gallon of water with pH drops per day. I went on what would be a one year liquid feast. Dr. Young told Lori and I that in order to get rid of all the acid that was in my body for so many years that I was going to possibly lose additional weight because fat binds to acid. We had blind faith in Dr. Young and Shelly and in 12 weeks both cancers were gone. I am proud to say in October 2013 I have been cancer free for 16 years, lowered my pain medication from 400mg down to 78mg and living an awesome alkalarian with the love of my life. I am a pH Miracle.
Two other times Dr. Young has saved my life
On one of my gasping for air trips to the hospital, Dr. Young and Tony Robbins called to wish me a happy birthday. Tony told me that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. He suggested that an endocrinologist and a kidney doctor take me completely off of the hydrocortisone and fludrocortizone and monitor my condition while I was in the hospital. Within 24 hours my blood pressure went down to 120/70. I eliminated the fludrocortizone and lowered the hydrocortizone from 50mg to 5mg in the morning and 2 ½ at night. My last microscopy showed my adrenal glands were 90% better.
In 2009, 4 years ago, my sodium levels due to all the metal in my body, went down to 107 and I went in a coma for almost 5 days. Western medicine told us that the blood sodium should be 130-139. Dr. Young suggested that my blood sodium should be 142 or higher. When I got out of the coma, Dr. Young created the 4 salts, the pHlavor Salts and the pHlush supplements to help everyone by providing the body with alkalizing sodium. He also created the COWS program which stands for Cholorophyll, Oxygen, Oil, Water and Salts. This program saved my lfie once again. In the last 16 years since I have known the Youngs, they have helped save and change my life 7 times, all due to western medicine screw ups. In 2007 the doctors put me on higher doses of hydrocortizone and fludocortizone for what I was labeled with having addisons disease and adrenal insufficiency, besides the JRA which arrested itself at age 13. Both uncurable according to western medicine. These doses of medication caused congested heart failure and a very high blood pressure of 180/120.
_____
Dr. Young taught me that all of our organs and cells can regenerate within 120 days. He was right. There has been a total of 7 times that Dr. Young has saved my life due to mistakes that western medicine has made. I strongly recommend this program and lifestyle to anyone at any age. The biggest life lesson I have learned is to ask lots of questions and don’t assume that just because they wear a white coat that they are god and can determine whether you can live or die. You must be your own self advocate. Our bodies are alkaline by design, acidic by function and will heal itself when it’s properly supported with alkalizing foods and drinks.
In 2008, Lori and I moved from New Jersey to San Diego in order to spread this message around the world, and Lori and I worked at the Ranch for 3 years. We continue to do cleanses for Dr. Young every three months with our friend Brian Claypool teaching other people how to become their own pH Miracle.

Lightening Always Strikes Its Opposite Polarity - ACIDIC EARTH OR PEOPLE!


The earth is ionized and alkalized when struck by lightening to maintain its healthy alkaline design. The human body is also alkaline by design although acidic by function. The following video shows a man being ionized and alkalized when struck by lightening twice. Another good reason to avoid a sick and dis-ease causing proton-rich acidic lifestyle and diet and embrace a healthy, electron-rich alkaline lifestyle and diet.

Every 10 Seconds Someone Dies From Diabetes - A Preventable and Reversable Acidic Condition!



All Sugars Are Acidic Waste Products of Metabolism and/or Cellular Breakdown That Cause Disease (Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer, Dementia) If NOT Eliminated!

Americans consume close to 50 billion liters of soda per year, which equates to about 216 liters, or about 57 gallons per person. That is a colossal amount of sugar. And not just any sugar, but one of the worst we know of – fructose, in the form of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).


Tragically, high fructose corn syrup, found in most soda drinks and energy drinks, has become the number one source of dietary acid in the United States, and it is very clear that it is the primary cause of the obesity and diabetes epidemic.

If you want to see what happens to a 5-year-old girl who has already consumed 1460 sodas in her short lifetime than watch the following YouTube video:

New Study Links GMOs To Cancer, Liver/Kidney Damage & Severe Hormonal Disruption


In November 2012, the Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology published a paper titled Long Term Toxicity of Roundup Herbicide and a Roundup-Tolerant genetically modified maize by Gilles-Eric Seralini and his team of researchers at France’s Caen University. (source) It was a very significant study that made a lot of noise worldwide, the first of its kind under controlled conditions that examined the possible effects of a GMO maize diet treated with Monsanto’s Roundup Herbicide.
After the research was completed, it went through rigorous reviews, as well as a four month review process by scientists and researchers. It was eventually approved and published, only to be retracted by request of the Journal. Although hundreds of scientists around the world condemned the retraction, and the researchers addressed the criticisms, it was to no avail.
There is great news to report however, as this major GMO study has now been republished following its controversial retraction (under strong commercial pressure), with even more up to date information and a response to previous criticisms. You can read more about that here.
The study has now been published by Environmental Sciences Europe. (source)
The chronic toxicity study examined the health impacts on rats of eating  commercialized genetically modified (GM) maize, alongside Monsanto’s NK603 glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup.
The study found severe liver and kidney damage as well as hormonal disturbances in rats fed with GM maize in conjunction with low levels of Roundup that were below those permitted in most drinking water across Europe. Results also indicated high rates of large tumors and mortality in most treatment groups.
The republished study also has a section describing the lobbying efforts of GMO crop supporters to force the retraction of the original publication. This is scientific fraud at its best. The authors express how the previous retraction was “a historic example of conflicts of interest in the scientific assessments of products commercialized worldwide.”
“We also show that the decision to retract cannot be rationalized on any discernible scientific or ethical grounds. Censorship of research into health risks undermines the value and the credibility of science, thus, we republish our paper.” –  Seralini
“Censorship on research into the risks of a technology so critically entwined with global food safety undermines the value and the credibility of science.” - Seralini
This study has now successfully passed through multiple rounds of rigorous peer review. Again, the study shows that Roundup-treated GM corn as well as the herbicide used on it increases cancer in rats. There are a number of studies that demonstrate the potential health risks of GM plants, this one in particular drew heavy criticism from industry scientists.
“The major criticisms of the Seralini manuscript were that the proper strain of rats was not used and their numbers were too small. Neither criticism is valid. The strain of rat is that which is required by the FDA for drug toxicology, and the toxic effects were unambiguously significant. In fact, Monsanto published a similar study in the same journal eight years before using the same number and strain of rats. Their study was for 90 days and claimed no harm. In contrast, the Seralini study was for two years and did not see any tumors until after nine months. Therefore, it is clear that the short 90-day feeding paradigm is not sufficiently long to detect the carcinogenic effects of GM products. It takes a long time before low-level exposure to environmental toxins affect health. For example, a recent associated press report documented the dramatic increase in birth defects and cancer in areas  of Argentina that have grown GM soy for a decade. Given these facts, what was the justification of the editorial decision to retract the Seralini Manuscript?”  (source)

Other Studies Regarding GMOs and Herbicides

There is a reason that multiple countries all over the world have been banning GMOs and the pesticides that go with them. More information is emerging everyday from scientists and researchers all over the world that clearly points to the fact that we just don’t know enough about GM’s to deem them totally safe for human consumption.
By slipping it into our food without our knowledge, without any indication that there are genetically modified organisms in our food, we are now unwittingly part of a massive experiment.The FDA has said that genetically modified organisms are not much different from regular food, so they’ll be treated in the same way. The problem is this, geneticists follow the inheritance of genes, what biotechnology allows us to do is to take this organism, and move it horizontally into a totally unrelated species. Now David Suzuki doesn’t normally mate with a carrot and exchange genes, what biotechnology allows us to do is to switch genes from one to the other without regard to the biological constraints. It’s very very bad science, we assume that the principals governing the inheritance of genes vertically, applies when you move genes laterally or horizontally. There’s absolutely no reason to make that conclusion – Geneticist David Suzuki (source)
Below is an excerpt from a previous article I wrote. For more information on this subject you can use the search bar on our website to find what you are looking for.

1. Multiple Toxins From GMOs Detected In Maternal and Fetal Blood

Research from Canada (the first of its kind) has successfully identified the presence of pesticides -associated with genetically modified foods in maternal, fetal and non-pregnant women’s blood. They also found the presence of Monsanto’s Bt toxin. The study was published in the Journal Reproductive Toxicology in 2011.(1) You can read the FULL study here.
“Given the potential toxicity of these environmental pollutants and the fragility of the fetus, more studies are needed, particularly those using the placental transfer approach. Thus, our present results will provide baseline data for future studies exploring a new area of research relating to nutrition, toxicology and reproduction in women. Today, obstetric-gynecological disorders that are associated with environmental chemicals are not known.  Thus, knowing the actual concentration of genetically modified foods in humans constitutes a cornerstone in the advancement of research in this area.” (1)
The study used blood samples from thirty pregnant women and thirty non-pregnant women. The study also pointed out that the fetus is considered to be highly susceptible to the adverse affects of xenobiotics (foreign chemical substance found within an organism that is not naturally produced.)  This is why the study emphasizes that knowing more about GMOs is crucial, because environmental agents could disrupt the biological events that are required to ensure normal growth and development.

2. DNA From Genetically Modified Crops Can Be Transferred Into Humans Who Eat Them

In a new study published in the peer reviewed Public Library of Science (PLOS), researchers emphasize that there is sufficient evidence that meal-derived DNA fragments carry complete genes that can enter into the human circulation system through an unknown mechanism.(2)
In one of the blood samples the relative concentration of plant DNA is higher than the human DNA.  The study was based on the analysis of over 1000 human samples from four independent studies. PLOS is an open access, well respected peer-reviewed scientific journal that covers primary research from disciplines within science and medicine. It’s great to see this study published in it, confirming what many have been suspected for years.
“Our bloodstream is considered to be an environment well separated from the outside world and the digestive tract. According to the standard paradigm large macromolecules consumed with food cannot pass directly to the circulatory system. During digestion proteins and DNA are thought to be degraded into small constituents, amino acids and nucleic acids, respectively, and then absorbed by a complex active process and distributed to various parts of the body through the circulation system. Here, based on the analysis of over 1000 human samples from four independent studies, we report evidence that meal-derived DNA fragments which are large enough to carry complete genes can avoid degradation and through an unknown mechanism enter the human circulation system. In one of the blood samples the relative concentration of plant DNA is higher than the human DNA. The plant DNA concentration shows a surprisingly precise log-normal distribution in the plasma samples while non-plasma (cord blood) control sample was found to be free of plant DNA.” (2)
This still doesn’t mean that GMOs can enter into our cells, but given the fact GMOs have been linked to cancer (later in this article) it is safe to assume it is indeed a possibility. The bottom line is that we don’t know, and this study demonstrates another cause for concern.

3. New Study Links GMOs To Gluten Disorders That Affect 18 Million Americans

This study was recently released by the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), and uses data from the US department of Agriculture, US Environmental Protection Agency, medical journal reviews as well as other independent research. (3)(4) The authors relate GM foods to five conditions that may either trigger or exacerbate gluten-related disorders, including the autoimmune disorder, Celiac Disease:
  • Intestinal permeability
  • Imbalanced gut bacteria
  • Immune activation and allergic response
  • Impaired digestion
  • Damage to the intestinal wall
The Institute for Responsible technology is a world leader in educating policy makers and the public about GMO foods and crops. The institute reports and investigates on the impact GM foods can have on health, environment, agriculture and more.

4. Study Links Genetically Modified Corn to Rat Tumors

In November 2012, The Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology published a paper titled ‘Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize’ by Gilles-Eric Seralini and his team of researchers at France’s Caen University. (5)
It was a very significant study, which obviously looks bad for the big bio tech companies like Monsanto, being the first and only long term study under controlled conditions examining the possible effects of a diet of GMO maize treated with Monsanto roundup herbicide.
This study has since been retracted, which is odd, because the journal it was published in is a very well known, reputable peer reviewed scientific journal. In order for a study to be published here it has to go through a rigorous review process.
It’s also important to note that hundreds of scientists from around the world have condemned the retraction of the study. This study was done by experts, and a correlation between GMOs and these tumors can’t be denied, something happened.
The multiple criticisms of the study have also been answered by the team of researchers that conducted the study. You can read them and find out more about the study here.

5. Glyphosate Induces Human Breast Cancer Cells Growth via Estrogen Receptors

A study is published in the US National Library of Medicine (4) and will soon be published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology. Several recent studies showed glyphosate’s potential to be an endocrine disruptor. Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can interfere with the hormone system in mammals. These disruptors can cause developmental disorders, birth defects and cancer tumors. (6)
Glyphosate exerted proliferative effects only in human hormone-dependent breast cancer. We found that glyphosate exhibited a weaker estrogenic activity than estradiol. Furthermore, this study demonstrated the additive estrogenic effects of glyphosate and genisein which implied that the use of contaminated soybean products as dietary supplements may pose a risk of breast cancer because of their potential additive estrogenicity. (6)
Researchers also determined that Monsanto’s roundup is considered an “xenoestrogen,” which is a foreign estrogen that mimics real estrogen in our bodies. This can cause a number of problems that include an increased risk of various cancers, early onset of puberty, thyroid issues, infertility and more.

6. Glyphosate Linked To Birth Defects

A group of scientists put together a comprehensive review of existing data that shows how European regulators have known that Monsanto’s glyphosate causes a number of birth malformations since at least 2002. Regulators misled the public about glyphosate’s safety, and in Germany the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety told the European Commission that there was no evidence to suggest that glyphosate causes birth defects. (7)
Our examination of the evidence leads us to the conclusion that the current approval of glyphosate and Roundup is deeply flawed and unreliable. In this report, we examine the industry studies and regulatory documents that led to the approval of glyphosate. We show that industry and regulators knew as long ago as the 1980s and 1990s that glyphosate causes malformation – but that this information was not made public. We demonstrate how EU regulators reasoned their way from clear evidence of glyphosate’s teratogenicity in industry’s own studies to a conclusion that minimized these findings in the EU Commission’s final review report (7)
Here is a summary of the report:
  • Multiple peer-reviewed scientific literature documenting serious health hazards posed by glyphosate
  • Industry (including Monsanto) has known since the 1980′s that glyphosate causes malformations in experimental animals at high doses
  • Industry has known since 1993 that these effects could also occur at lower and mid doses
  • The German government has known since at least 1998 that glyphosate causes malformations
  • The EU Commission’s expert scientific review panel knew in 1999 that glyphosate causes malformations
  • The EU Commission has known since 2002 that glyphosate causes malformations. This was the year DG SANCO division published its final review report, laying out the basis for the current approval of glyphosate
Another study published by the American Chemical Society, from the university of Buenos Aires, Argentina also showed that Glyphosate can cause abnormalities.(8)
The direct effect of glyphosate on early mechanisms of morphogenesis in vertebrate embryos opens concerns about the clinical findings from human offspring in populations exposed to glyphosate in agricultural fields (8)

7. Study Links Glyphosate To Autism, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s

When you ingest Glyphosate, you are in essence altering the chemistry of your body. It’s completely unnatural and the body doesn’t resonate with it. P450 (CYP) is the gene pathway disrupted when the body takes in Glyphosate. P450 creates enzymes that assist with the formation of molecules in cells, as well as breaking them down. CYP enzymes are abundant and have many important functions. They are responsible for detoxifying xenobiotics from the body, things like the various chemicals found in pesticides, drugs and carcinogens. Glyphosate inhibits the CYP enzymes. The CYP pathway is critical for normal, natural functioning of multiple biological systems within our bodies. Because humans that’ve been exposed to glyphosate have a drop in amino acid tryptophan levels, they do not have the necessary active signalling of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which is associated with weight gain, depression and Alzheimer’s disease. (9)

8. Chronically Ill Humans Have Higher Glyphosate Levels Than Healthy Humans

A new study out of Germany concludes that Glyphosate residue could reach humans and animals through feed and can be excreted in urine. It outlines how presence of glyphosate in urine and its accumulation in animal tissues is alarming even at low concentrations. (10)
To this day, Monsanto continues to advertise its Roundup products as environmentally friendly and claims that neither animals nor humans are affected by this toxin. Environmentalists, veterinarians, medical doctors and scientists however, have raised increasing alarms about the danger of glyphosate in the animal and human food chain as well as the environment. The fact that glyphosate has been found in animals and humans is of great concern. In search for the causes of serious diseases amongst entire herds of animals in northern Germany, especially cattle, glyphosate has repeatedly been detected in the urine, feces, milk and feed of the animals. Even more alarming, glyphosate was detected in the urine of the farmers.  (10)

9. Studies Link GMO Animal Feed to Severe Stomach Inflammation and Enlarged Uteri in Pigs

A study by scientist Judy Carman, PhD that was recently published in the peer reviewed journal Organic Systems outlines the effects of a diet mixed with GMO feed for pigs, and how it is a cause for concern when it comes to health. (11) Scientists randomized and fed isowean pigs either a mixed GM soy and GM corn (maize) diet for approximately 23 weeks (nothing out of the ordinary for most pigs in the United States), which is unfortunately the normal lifespan of a commercial pig from weaning to slaughter. Equal numbers of male and female pigs were present in each group. The GM diet was associated with gastric and uterine differences in pigs. GM pigs had uteri that were 25% heavier than non-GM fed pigs. GM-fed pigs had a higher rate of severe stomach inflammation with a rate of 32% compared to 125 of non-GM fed pigs.
The study concluded that pigs fed a GMO diet exhibited a heavier uteri and a higher rate of severe stomach inflammation than pigs who weren’t fed a GMO diet. Because the use of GMO feed for livestock and humans is so widespread, this is definitely another cause for concern when it comes to GMO consumption. Humans have a similar gastrointestinal tract to pigs, and these GM crops are consumed widely by people, especially in the United States.

10. GMO risk assessment is based on very little scientific evidence in the sense that the testing methods recommended are not adequate to ensure safety. (12)(13)(14)

Deficiencies have been revealed numerous times with regards to testing GM foods.
The first guidelines were originally designed to regulate the introduction of GM microbes and plants into the environment with no attention being paid to food safety concerns. However, they have been widely cited as adding authoritative scientific support to food safety assessment. Additionally, the Statement of Policy released by the Food and Drug Administration of the United States, presumptively recognizing the GM foods as GRAS (generally recognized as safe), was prepared while there were critical guidelines prepared by the International Life Sciences Institute Europe and FAO/WHO recommend that safety evaluation should be based on the concept of substantial equivalence, considering parameters such as molecular characterization, phenotypic characteristics, key nutrients, toxicants and allergens. Since 2003, official standards for food safety assessment have been published by the Codex Alimentarius Commission of FAO/WHO. Published reviews with around 25 peer-reviewed studies have found that despite the guidelines, the risk assessment of GM foods has not followed a defined prototype.(12) (15)
“The risk assessment of genetically modified (GM) crops for human nutrition and health has not been systematic. Evaluations for each GM crop or trait have been conducted using different feeding periods, animal models and parameters. The most common results is that GM and conventional sources include similar nutritional performance and growth in animals. However, adverse microscopic and molecular effects of some GM foods in different organs or tissues have been reported. While there are currently no standardized methods to evaluate the safety of GM foods, attempts towards harmonization are on the way. More scientific effort is necessary in order to build confidence in the evaluation and acceptance of GM foods.” (12) (15)
