"Just days ago, RT.com reported that the U.S. Environmental ?Protection? Agency is set to raise the allowable limits of Monsanto?s best-selling glyphosate pesticide Roundup in our nation?s food crops to ridiculously high levels:

Through the EPA?s new standards, the amount of allowable glyphosate in oilseed crops such as flax, soybeans and canola will be increased from 20 parts per million (ppm) to 40 ppm, which GM Watch acknowledged is over 100,000 times the amount needed to induce breast cancer cells. Additionally, the EPA is increasing limits on allowable glyphosate in food crops from 200 ppm to 6,000 ppm.

Supposedly they were able to do this because a two-month open comment period that began May 1st drew little public resistance.

This is in spite of a flurry of new studies coming out just this month demonstrating the detrimental effects of pesticide on the environment and all manner of things living in it"

It's clear that the EPA has been compromised and literally purchased by Monsanto and other companies.

The health of Ordinary Americans is NOT A CONCERN for the EPA.

Our food supplies up and down the chain, are being destroyed and rendered unsafe to eat.

This is a deliberate, planned genocidal action on the part of the complicit U.S. government & it's numerous agencies as well as companies like Monsanto who are willing to sicken and kill billions of people for monetary profit.
