Poison Planet

I recently reviewed What’s Making Our Children SICK? by Michelle Perro and Vinceanne Adams. Their work shows that it’s the way the food industry combines genetic engineering with pesticides.

Just now, I’ve read about another line of research that more than confirms their findings. Indeed, the same villains are implicated in actually affecting the genes. The human-made toxins we breathe, drink and eat are not merely poisoning us, but also our descendants. Children ingesting poisons now are altering their future children and grandchildren.

Ken Roseboro in EcoWatch reported on the work of Indiana medical scientists, Paul Winchester and Michael Skinner, and their team.

This is a must-read.

I never trust a popularized article about research, but check the scientific report. Having read one of their many studies, I am satisfied that this is genuine, and serious.

This research group have tested a great many environmentally common poisons, including atrazine and glyphosate, the two most frequently used pesticides in the USA. They found that all of these substances have effects on the children and even more on the grandchildren of rats exposed to them during gestation. These effect increase over generations.

This is a new finding, but not a new thing. I suspected it nearly 50 years ago, when my children all developed problems with their secondary teeth. Neither my wife nor I, nor our families, have a history of such things, but our kids have them. Also, my son has a mutation in the way his femur has grown.

I think if you did a minute examination of every person, you would find a wide variety of random mutations in everyone born since the 1950s. Just another way we are killing ourselves.

The issue of Bobbing Around containing the book review I mentioned above starts with a quote from Jane Goodall: How could we have ever believed that it was a good idea to grow our food with poisons?

She was right.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.

    I remember a post a few years (?) ago about a family moving down to Central America from the States and how all their “illnesses” (digestion and allergies) had cleared up in 6 months because they weren’t being “poisoned” by all the s—t we accept as part of life.

    And…remember when Monsanto sued farmers along the Canadian border for “stealing” copywritten seeds when the bees cross border pollinated the farms with the Monsanto seeds?

    Don’t get me wrong here. I’m anti Monsanto regarding stuff like this and especially the plagues on the bees. And, my uncle worked for them for most of his life too. But hearing that asbestos traced back to them is popping up in generic crayons?!!!

      I have a friend who has multiple digestive problems while at home in Australia, including gluten intolerance. When he visits his wife’s family in the Philippines, he can eat everything including bread.
      So, this is exactly the same thing.
      but of course, it’s one planet, and the toxic soup is getting to be everywhere.

    I felt I just had to. I’ve even drawn Avaaz’s attention to this research, in case they haven’t heard of it, since they are in legal conflict with Monsanto, right now.

    Thank you for posting.


  4. Dr Bob Rich says:

    Oh, it’s Bayer now. They’ve changed the name because of all the hate directed at Monsanto. Quite unjustified of course. After all, if the people running it want to commit suicide, why shouldn’t they take the entire ecosystem with them?


  5. Florence Weinberg says:

    Monsanto is the monster masquerading as a saint (Get it? MONS[ter] and monSANTO). In all seriousness, though, Monsanto with its genetic engineering and production of pesticides that remain forever in the environment if killing the planet and, as you say, Bob, you, me and our descendants along with all other living things.
