Dr. Weeks’ Comment: Again, my friend and colleague Robert Cohen, the “not milkman” offers valuable information. http://www.notmilk.com

USDA has our backs right? Just in case you believe
that to be true, don’t leave home without enough gauze
and bandages to prevent your shirts from becoming
bloodstained by USDA daggers, just in case UDSA exists
to protect the bad guys instead of American consumers.
Who is trading what to whom and why?
How much does it cost to betray a trusting American?
Insiders at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)
recently proposed a rule that would have given state
agencies (health regulators) inside information regarding
those farmers who spray their crops with glyphosates
contained in herbicides to treat genetically modified
Glyphosates are the active ingredient in Monsanto’s
genetically engineered Roundup Ready herbicides and
are used to treat GMO crops. Glyphosate builds up
over time in a woman’s body, and can also be found
in American drinking water up to ten times more than
in European drinking water where GMO crops are illegal.
Glyphosate has been shown to double the risk of non-Hodgkin’s
lymphoma. Glyphosate use in Central America, India and Sri
Lanka is the cause of new debate, as it has recently (July,
2014) been linked to Chronic Kidney Disease epidemics by
many doctors and researchers.
On April 6, 2014, the most toxic of herbicides (glyphosate)
was detected in breast milk from American mothers. Urine
from those mothers also showed glyphosate levels ten times
higher than European mothers. In June, 2014, the journal
Food Chemistry included a study that found “Glyphosate
accumulates in Roundup Ready GMO soybeans.”
On Thursday, July 17, 2014, at the direction of USDA
Secretary Dan Glickman, USDA withdrew the rule which
will benefit Monsanto, DuPont, and Dow Chemical, the
three major GMO food crop companies. USDA’s betrayal
will cause harm to consumers who eat such cancer-causing
In betraying American consumers, USDA published in
the Federal Register:
“We have decided to withdraw the proposed rule to
ensure that our ability to protect confidential
business information from disclosure is maintained.”
When it comes to intimidation and betrayal,
USDA is one big bad brute.
