Why Are There So Many Cancers Now?

cancer-epidemic

by Catherine J. Frompovich, Guest, Waking Times

This is an “anthology” of sorts about the etiology of the current cancer epidemic-pandemic.

C-A-N-C-E-R is the word that strikes horror in the hearts and minds of every human alive.  However, that always was not the case.  I’m old enough to remember when cancer was a rather ‘rare’ disease or condition.  Furthermore, I know medical doctors a little older than my ‘vintage’ who say that when they were in medical school, they were not taught very much about cancer, so much so, that when a cancer patient was in one of the wards in a teaching hospital, the entire class of physicians-in-training was trotted in to see that patient.  How interesting?

Personally, I’m of the belief that there is not very much new under the sun EXCEPT what’s being designed and created by genetic modification and geoengineering.  Cancer, undoubtedly, has been around in some form probably since very ancient times.  However, the current ‘plague of cancers’, even though not an anomaly since just about everyone and his or her brother has or had it, became ‘profitable’ during the latter half of the twentieth century.

There is no doubt that cancer, as an ‘industry’, will become even more problematic—plus profitable—to the point where every person probably will contract cancer in some form or other, almost as if by some ulterior design.  Why do I say that?  Because of how cancer has been made into a “profitable business,” revenue stream and profit center for varied and numerous vested interests, when there actually are cancer cures controlling vested interests suppress or even keep for themselves.  Is that too harsh to hear?  Well, have you recently looked into or checked out the ridiculously-priced costs of cancer treatments and protocols?  Like all wars, the “war on cancer” is profitable for vested interests.

For starters, the average cost of a new cancer drug is over $100,000 per year.

Newly-approved cancer drugs can cost about $10,000 on average per month, while some can top off at around, or over, $30,000 a month.

Contrast those prices with the cost of cancer drugs a decade or so ago, which were a mere ‘smidgen’ of only $4,500 a month.  Talk about inflation, or is it medical-pharma rip-off time?  Owning a ‘cancer insurance’ policy really doesn’t help defray many of those costs either.  Usually a cancer policy will state that it provides a lump sum payment for “a covered cancer” or a recurrence of cancer.   Some policies will provide a lump sum cash payout of X dollars upon diagnosis and that’s it!

This website  gives the “average” medical costs for various types of cancers.

What do you think is the average salary an oncologist pulls in? That salary can range from approximately $294,000 to $383,000 per year.  However, how do doctors feel about taking chemotherapy for themselves? When polled, the results showed “75% of physicians in the world refuse chemotherapy for themselves.”  Isn’t that interesting?

In this article, “If Chemotherapy Fails 97% Of The Time, Why Do Doctors Recommend It?” you may begin to understand that doctors don’t learn to cure anything!  “They learn about chemicalintervention or surgery to suppress symptoms. They don’t go for the root cause.” (That would put them out of business!)

So how did allopathic medicine and humans become ‘partners’ in cancer?

The first documented case of cancer comes from ancient Egypt. According to the American Cancer Society, there are eight documented cases of breast cancer found on papyrus dating all the way back to 3000 B.C. Even the term cancer has been around for centuries— Hippocrates, the Greek physician who is widely considered the Father of Medicine, used the words carcinos and carcinoma to describe tumors. [1]

Incidentally, there is no mention of cancer per se, even though other diseases are mentioned, in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.  However, individual interpretations, though, may lead some to conclude differently.

Cancer as a rarity in ancient times is not disputed, although some fossilized bone tumors have been found in ancient human mummies.  The dreaded disease of antiquity was leprosy or what’s known in modern times as Hansen’s disease.

During the Renaissance in Europe, a better understanding of the human body began to develop and that led to more diagnostics, especially once post mortem operations (autopsies) became more of a routine procedure after death.  The Renaissance’s Michelangelo, sculptor of “David,” was known to perform detailed anatomical dissections of “fresh cadavers,” which obviously led to his ability to ‘create’ a marble man of extreme anatomical elegance.  Additionally, the invention of the microscope moved pathogenesis along to a great degree of sophisticated knowledge regarding diseased tissues.

It wasn’t until the 1900s that the ‘modern’ or current understanding about cancer and things called “carcinogens” began to appear in science and medicine.   Coincidentally, or more accurately I say, parallel tracks relating to certain diseases began to manifest too.  Those parallels encompassed man-made chemicals and cancer demographics!  Currently the ‘buzz words’ also include epigenetics.

What went wrong

Some of the most egregious assaults upon the human organism that contribute to cancers are the inordinate use and amounts of toxic chemicals placed into food and water—deliberately Food growing, processing, preserving, coloring and taste enhancement-chemicals do not belong in food—period!  They adulterate food and our bodies causing biochemical and nutritional imbalances, including genotoxic DNA problems that program cancers.  Neither do most of the man-made chemicals used in water treatment facilities belong in water—the second-most vital element, besides air, for maintaining life.

In my July 2016 book, Eat to Beat Disease, Foods Medicinal Qualities, I devote the Introduction to chronicling how agriculture and the food chain have been polluted chemically, basically since the Industrial Revolution, and especially since World War II when USA businesses and industries went haywire manufacturing, advertising and selling chemicals and pharmaceuticals as ‘needed elements to make life better’—“Better living through chemistry!”  Unfortunately, consumers bought into and ‘embraced’ all the ‘kill’ chemicals for eliminating bugs, vermin, crab grass, weeds, etc.  How hoodwinked were we not to realize that anything that can kill one life form, can and will do irreparable or long-term damage to other life forms higher up the food chain?  Those “can’t do without” lawn chemicals now pollute our drinking water!…

Is the current cancer epidemic-pandemic a ‘man-made’ problem?

As I said in the beginning of this “anthology,” cancer has been around since ‘forever’, but the current rate of contraction is far beyond what could be termed ‘natural chances’.  Everything, including pharmacology, which I’ve not discussed, is implicated in a “cause and effect” with cancer ideologies, especially anything having to do with “man-made” chemicals, a great quantity of which affects our food, water and the air we breathe.

Is it too late to do anything about the cancer epidemic-pandemic?  What do you think?…

Bayer-Monsanto merger is ‘five-alarm threat’ to food and farms: Legal experts

image edited by Web Investigator 

White paper from two former Justice Department officials warns merger would violate antitrust laws and lessen competition

BETRAYED! Whole Foods and the Organic Trade Association just plowed right through American food consumers like the terrorist truck rampage in France (op ed)

Whole Foods

(NaturalNews) By now we’re all sadly aware of the terror atrocity in Nice, France that took the lives of at least 80 people. The attack was insane and horrific, and my prayers go out to all those affected by the senseless violence. Yet it isn’t just ISIS terrorists who are destroying lives in our world, and it’s not just trucks that damage our bodies and cause pain and suffering. The number of lives ripped from our world by the horrific attack on innocent people in France pales in comparison to what Whole Foods and the Organic Trade Association just did to 300+ million people in America as you’ll learn below…

Working in agreement with Monsanto’s devious plan, Whole Foods and the Organic Trade Association just plowed over America’s health-conscious consumers by backing the passage of the “Dark Act 2.0” GMO anti-labeling bill. From Natural News:

“It’s important for the world to understand that it was the Organic Trade Association that killed our state GMO labeling laws by backing Monsanto’s Stabenow-Roberts bill,” Maine organic seed farmer and longtime OSGATA president, Jim Gerritsen, said in a statement.

“It’s clear that Organic Trade Association has come under the control of a small group of lobbyists controlled by giant-food corporations that also own organic brands. … The Organic Trade Association can no longer be trusted, and it’s clear that organic farmers can no longer condone this dubious trade association’s troubling behavior.”

Now passed by both the U.S. Senate and House, this bill outlaws all GMO labeling laws nationwide. It will cause millions of people to unknowingly eat foods containing genetically engineered ingredients linked to cancer tumors, digestive disorders, infertility and death. The bill makes GMO labeling entirely “voluntary” and has zero penalties for non-compliance. Even the FDA has said it would exempt as much as 99% of all foods from being labeled.

Chemical violence is another form of violence against women and children

There are many types of violence that can destroy lives. Kinetic violence is what we just witnessed in France with the mowing down of innocent bystanders by a 10-ton truck. Kinetic violence is what most people imagine when they hear the word “violence” but there’s another type of violence that’s causing widespread harm, suffering and death in our world: CHEMICAL VIOLENCE.

When chemicals damage our cells, our organs, our bodies and minds, that is a type of violence committed against our person, especially when we are denied the right to avoid them by knowing what we’re buying and eating. Chemical violence is a violation of every woman’s body, and I mention women in particular because they are the nurturers of the unborn (and the recently born who are still nursing). Yet “chemical violence” is precisely the kind of violence Whole Foods has tolerated for the last two decades while it continued to sell unlabeled GMOs to unsuspecting consumers, many of whom falsely believed Whole Foods sold no GMOs at all.

Why did so many health-conscious consumers believe Whole Foods’ lies? Because some Whole Foods stores trained their managers to lie to consumers and claim the stores sold no GMOs, even when the store shelves were filled with unlabeled GMOs. This all came out in 2013 with the Organic Spies undercover video fiasco.

Whole Foods has also engaged in systematic marketing fraud by emblazoning its buildings with utterly fraudulent statements like the one you see in the photo below: “Nothing Artificial, EVER.”

That’s Aaron Dykes reporting from a Whole Foods parking lot in Austin, Texas. The claim “Nothing Artificial, Ever” implies that Whole Foods sells no GMOs, as GMOs are of course artificially engineered. This is just one of the multitude of lies and fraudulent deceptions Whole Foods has pulled off over the years, all while apparently plotting to push a Monsanto-favored law that would ban GMO labeling laws nationwide. (Whole Foods and Monsanto both agree that GMO labeling is bad for business… who’s gonna keep buying all their poisons if the labels tell the truth?)

Whole Foods sells products that are laced glyphosate… here’s what it did to lab rats

To this day, Whole Foods continues to sell a multitude of foods that contain glyphosate, the toxic herbicide chemical sold by Monsanto as “Roundup.” I know this because I have already tested products purchased at Whole Foods in my ISO accredited laboratory known as CWClabs.com, which is internationally recognized and accredited for conducting “analytical excellence” in food contamination analysis.

Using a combination of liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry and a sample prep technique involving solid phase extraction, I’ve already seen alarming concentrations of glyphosate in products I purchased at Whole Foods. Later this year, I’m going to publicly publish a list of glyphosate-laced products being sold by Whole Foods for the sake of science conducted in the public interest. No doubt Whole Foods’ lawyers will attempt to stop me from publishing this information, but they will fail. With your support and my laboratory, science will prevail against Whole Foods’ attempts to hide what they are selling and deceive their own oblivious customers.

Now that Whole Foods has conspired to cover up GMO labeling nationwide, independent labs like mine are the only remaining option for the public to know the truth about the chemical composition of products being retailed by Whole Foods. The more they cover it up, the more we publish the truth they don’t want you to know. Real science is Whole Foods’ worst enemy, and thanks to the support of Natural News readers, we now have real science working for We the People instead of the corporate backstabbers and chemical violence pushers. (By the way, if you wish to support our funding of these scientific initiatives, help support my new online store known as HealthRangerStore.com, where everything we sell is laboratory tested for known contaminants. And no, we don’t sell anything that’s GMO. My store is what Whole Foods only pretends to be…)

So just how “violent” is the chemical violence related to glyphosate and GMOs that Whole Foods continues to sell?

As these lab rat photos show from the Seralini Study, GMOs and glyphosate — the cancer-causing herbicide used on GMO crops — results in horrific tumors, intense human suffering and early death.

From Natural News:

The animals on the GM diet suffered mammary tumors, as well as severe liver and kidney damage. The researchers said 50 percent of males and 70 percent of females died prematurely, compared with only 30 percent and 20 percent in the control group.

• Up to 50% of males and 70% of females suffered premature death.

• Rats that drank trace amounts of Roundup (at levels legally allowed in the water supply) had a 200% to 300% increase in large tumors.

• Rats fed GM corn and traces of Roundup suffered severe organ damage including liver damage and kidney damage.

• The study fed these rats NK603, the Monsanto variety of GM corn that’s grown across North America and widely fed to animals and humans. This is the same corn that’s in your corn-based breakfast cereal, corn tortillas and corn snack chips.

Whole Foods CEO Walter Robb caught on video supporting Monsanto-inspired anti-GMO labeling law

The federal law that now pretends to enact “GMO labeling” but actually outlaws GMO labeling was heavily promoted by Whole Foods’ CEO Walter Robb who was caught on video openly supporting the Monsanto-engineered law. To the public, of course, Whole Foods deceptively presented a false narrative that insisted “there is no truth to these claims.” Less than 24 hours later, Whole Foods was caught red-handed in this Natural News investigation.

“Today, Congress trampled on consumer and states’ rights, choosing instead serve the interests of Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers Association,” said Ronnie Cummins, international director of the Organic Consumers Association. “This bill was written bought and paid for by corporations who clearly have something to hide. Replacing clear, on-package labels with a system that is convoluted, inconvenient and discriminates against the elderly, the poor and anyone without a smartphone or internet access is inexcusable, especially when consumers in 64 other countries have the right to that same information.”

Organic Trade Association betrays everyone, goes all-in for Monsanto

The streets of Nice, France are littered with the bodies of the dead and dying tonight, yet the cancer clinics of America will soon be littered with far more expansive suffering from the chemical violence victims of Monsanto, Whole Foods and the Organic Trade Association.

To the dismay of nearly the entire organic industry, the Organic Trade Association has now been entirely infiltrated by Monsanto’s minions — the disgusting factory food giants of the organic industry. At this point, the OTA is now wholly beholden to Monsanto and the interests of chemical agriculture. Essentially, biotech operatives strapped suicide vests to themselves, waltzed into the organic industry and detonated every last echo of credibility or honesty. They are no doubt celebrating the legislative bloodshed just like ISIS Jihadis in France.

Yes, these people really are terrorists

Lest anyone question the comparison of biotech operatives to ISIS terrorist, allow me to assure you they both operate with the same disregard for ethics, morals, human life and the environment. I have personally been death-threated, stalked and systematically defamed by biotech industry operatives and their Monsanto mafia lackeys in the media, some of whom are named on this website MonsantoMafia.com.

These people are the most vile, lawless, despicable destroyers of life ever to walk this world… and Whole Foods just combined forces with them to pass this shameful law that will deny all of us the right to know what we’re buying and eating. With the biotech infiltration of the Organic Trade Association, it’s now probably only a matter of time before GMOs will be redefined as “organic” and allowed into organic foods. That’s their goal: To destroy the very definition of “organic” by overrunning it.

The term “organic” is now very close to being meaningless, and that’s a huge loss for all people who are desperately attempting to protect life, health and the environment. To put in all in perspective, the number of people who are going to be killed by cancer caused by GMO-related herbicide chemicals over the next 10 years dwarfs the number of innocent victims just crushed to death in France. For every one victim of ISIS terrorism in our world, there are no doubt thousands of victims of the chemical agriculture industry that maliciously pushes deadly chemicals by threatening scientists, bribing government officials and fabricating bad science just like Big Tobacco once did to sell its own cancer-causing poisons to the world.

There are many ways that people needlessly die in our world. Whole Foods just contributed to a huge one that will now negatively impact all of us for decades to come. What I now know with certainty is that Whole Foods Market knows no shame and will stop at nothing to plow through the people on its way to corporate profits at any cost. When I see the streets littered with bodies laying in pools of blood and loved ones crying over their lifeless limbs, I can only think of Whole Foods and its malicious, utter betrayal of the very concept of what makes a food WHOLE to begin with. The corporation mocks us all — and mocks itself — by selling out to the interests of Monsanto and the chemical poisoners of our world.

The streets of France may be dripping with blood, but the food shelves of America are saturated with poison. And a huge quantity of that poison is sold inside buildings that carry the utterly false, misleading and fraudulent name of “Whole Foods.”

One of the best ways you can help stop chemical violence against women and children is to stop shopping at Whole Foods.

How Monsanto invaded, occupied and now CONTROLS government regulators

Monsanto

(NaturalNews) If you’ve ever wondered why corporations seem to hold so much sway over our government, look no further than who’s making all the decisions in Washington – and more importantly, where many of these people worked before being handed comfy, high-level positions at top government agencies.

You might be surprised at the number of senior advisors, chiefs of staff, judges, commissioners and others employed at agencies like the Department of Justice (DoJ), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) who all have one thing in common: they used to hold executive-level positions at multinational corporations like Monsanto.

The infographic below depicts a revolving-door relationship between Monsanto and the federal government that dates back many decades. You’ll probably recognize many of the names on the list, but chances are you had no idea these folks used to work for Monsanto or advocate for its interests before taking key positions of power on the taxpayer dime.

image

Both conservative and liberal politicians share history of affiliation with Monsanto

Donald Rumsfeld is one of the more prominent names that probably jumps out at you, as this former Secretary of Defense under both Gerald Ford and George W. Bush is remembered as one of the key Bush administration warmongers who helped propel forward the “War on Terror” following 9/11. Rumsfeld also just so happens to have been a former CEO for G.D. Searle, a pharmaceutical company that has since merged with Monsanto.

Another prominent, and probably surprising, name on the list is Clarence Thomas, a U.S. Supreme Court justice who many conservatives respect for his supposedly far-right stances on most issues. Thomas is a former lawyer for Monsanto who cast the deciding vote to hand the contested 2000 election over to George W. Bush.

Michael Taylor, who recently resigned from his position as deputy commissioner of the FDA, is another former attorney for Monsanto who fought on behalf of the company’s interests for seven years. Taylor also served as head of Monsanto’s Washington, D.C., office, an obvious conflict of interest considering the FDA’s job is to regulate the activities of corporations like Monsanto.

The very first Chief Administrator for the EPA, William D. Ruckelshaus, is another Monsanto hack who served on the company’s Board of Directors. Ruckelshaus, who was appointed back in 1970, later went on to become the acting director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and even held the position of Deputy U.S. Attorney General.

The EPA, as you probably already know, has a reputation for being lax in regulating chemicals manufactured by large corporations, and now you know why – from the beginning, the agency was steered by Monsanto operatives to push a very different agenda than environmental protection.

Other key names include:

• Michael Kantor, a Monsanto lawyer and board member who served as campaign chair for the Clinton-Gore campaign in 1992, U.S. Trade Representative from 1993–1996, and U.S. Secretary of Commerce from 1996–1997.

• Margaret Miller, a top Monsanto scientist who oversaw getting the genetically-engineered growth hormone rBGH commercially approved despite a lack of evidence assuring its safety, and who in 1991 was appointed Deputy Director for the FDA.

• Islam Saddiqui, former vice president of CropLife America – a Monsanto affiliate – who was later appointed as Chief Agricultural Negotiator for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.

• Anne Veneman, a former board member for the Monsanto biotech subsidiary Calgene, who in 2001 was appointed as head of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

• Rufus Yerxa, former Chief Counsel at Monsanto, who in 1993 was nominated as U.S. Deputy to the World Trade Organization.

• Richard J. Mahoney, former Monsanto CEO for 14 years, who served as Director of the U.S., Soviet, Japanese and Korean Trade Councils, as well as member of the U.S. Government Trade Policy Committee.

The 8 most SURPRISING places you’ll find GMOs

Hidden GMOs

by: S. D. Wells

(NaturalNews) Half of all Americans will get cancer in their lifetime, and only half of them will survive. That’s at least one fourth of all Americans who will die from a preventable disease that virtually did not exist in America a century ago.

Now here comes a big question: Why will the other half never get cancer? Easy, simple answer that the half who get cancer never believe – organic food and natural medicine. Yet, medical doctors in America have totally convinced all the sheeple that the only way to prevent, treat, or cure any disease or disorder is with chemical medicine – another cause of cancer.

The naive, uneducated, stubborn junk-science eaters use all the same excuses, over and over and over. They say: “Organic food is too expensive,” or, “Those anti-vaccine fanatics are crazy,” or, “There’s no way food is going to heal my cancer,” or, “Cancer runs in my family,” or, “It’s all genetics,” or, “I’m going to a ‘world class’ cancer treatment center,” or, “We all die some day.” Sure, but who wants to die early, and from cancer?

Eating clean could never be more important than it is right now. The FDA approves all genetically modified foods and requires no labels, while nearly every other developing country in the world boycotts everything GMO, including U.S. food exports like corn and soy; just check Russia and Japan.

Western “science-based” medicine has never been more polluted, experimental, dangerous and cancer-causing than it is right now. The FDA accepts any drug where the corporation pays millions to have it “fast-tracked” into approval and distribution by rogue MDs, who know nothing but how to juggle multiple chemical medications for patients who are experiencing cancer cell mutations from the toxic food, water and other medications they’re already consuming, injecting and applying to their skins.

Organic food is not that hard to find, and it’s not expensive, especially when compared to cancer surgery, CAT scans, mammograms, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments. However, most people would expect healthy food to be located in the places where the government and the medical system should be looking out for citizen health and wellness, but that’s where you’ll find the worst kind of food a human being can consume. Also known as genetically mutated Frankenfoods, these foods are laced with bug-killing pesticides and weed-killing herbicides never meant for human consumption. If you don’t have cancer now, it’s not because you’re lucky, or because you have “good genes.” Have no doubt, nearly all cancer cases are caused by chemicals, and many of them show up in the places you would least suspect.

Here are the 8 most SURPRISING places you’ll find GMOs

#1. Hospital food: In the cafeteria and what is brought to your bedside. Sure enough, there’s that cancer-causing poison, right there at the hospital, where your body is desperate for clean food and clean water. But it won’t be getting any, unless your thoughtful, well-informed relatives are bringing you organic food and spring water at least three times a day.

#2. School food for children: At public schools across the country, what gets dropped on your child’s tray is no better quality than the food served in prisons. Pink slime for red meat, hormone and antibiotic-laced dairy products, artificially colored and synthetically flavored junk food snacks, and hydrogenated oil-soaked fries.

#3. Vaccines and flu shots: Your child is less immune and more vulnerable to infectious diseases if they get vaccinated, because today’s vaccines are lumped too close together, and full of neurotoxins that cause central nervous system disorders (like autism), extreme allergies for life (like peanuts, eggs, dairy, MSG and latex), and spread the very diseases they are injected with (like measles and polio)!

#4. Military rations: Can you believe it? Those men and women in uniform who have pledged to protect our country experience nervous disorders, depression, anxiety, immune deficiency, infections and brain fog, and it’s not all PTSD to blame, although the government would have everyone believe that’s the case. From diet sodas with aspartame, to nutrient-void rations that contain nothing but genetically modified soy, canola and corn materials, the strength and intelligence of the U.S. military is severely compromised by toxic food.

#5. Animal feed: Yep. Not only are most of the staple crops and produce grown in America infested with pesticides, but the food given to the animals – the very animals and their byproducts that all the carnivores will be consuming – that food is laced with cancer-causing toxic glyphosate and other known carcinogens.

#6. Top notch, fine-dining restaurants: You think because you’re eating under candlelight and you ordered the Filet Mignon, or the $50 plate of salmon or tilapia, that your meat isn’t tainted by genetically modified organisms? Did you know, if the meat is not organic and the cow wasn’t “grass-fed” that it was probably fed GM feed, and shot up with hormones and antibiotics? Did you know that “farm-raised” fish means they are raised in a lake or indoor tank where it’s over-crowded and the fish are also given artificial growth hormones and antibiotics? Plus, the FDA has approved genetically modified salmon that contains eel genes, and it’s not even labeled as such.

#7. Whole Foods supermarket (especially at the food bar): Want some GMO oils that cause cancer? Try the chicken salad, tuna salad, pasta salad, or potato salad at the Whole Foods prepared food bar.

#8. Foods labeled “gluten-free”: Most of these foods contain monosodium glutamate, which is genetically modified and causes migraine headaches and brain damage in infants.

No wonder cancer and Alzheimer’s are massive epidemics in the USA. At least, from now on, you won’t be so surprised, when you ask the food preparers where the food comes from!

Over 80 percent of popular bread brands contain cancer-causing chemicals

Bread

 by: Daniel Barker

(NaturalNews) Before you make that next sandwich, you may want to read the list of ingredients on your bread bag label – because there’s a very good chance that it may contain carcinogens.

A food additive used in bread called potassium bromate has been in the international news lately. Indian health officials have recently called for a ban on the use of the additive, which has been shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals.

A testing of products in India found potassium bromate in 84 percent of 38 popular brands of bread, buns, pizza crusts and other baked goods.

Potassium bromate has already been banned in numerous countries, including the entire EU, the UK, Canada, China and Brazil.

Potassium bromate not banned in the U.S.

However, the use of potassium bromate has not been banned in the United States, and although all states require the listing of ingredients, only California requires a warning label for the additive to be included.

Potassium bromate is added to dough to make it stronger and more elastic. It also speeds up the bread-making process and gives baked products a white color.

Genotoxic effects of potassium bromate

Clinical studies measuring the effects of potassium bromate on humans have not been performed, but studies on human cells suggest that the chemical may indeed cause cancer.

In 2015, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) published a report on potassium bromate.

From Tree Hugger:

“‘Obviously there haven’t been any intentional studies that expose humans to high levels of potassium bromate,’ said Jose Aguayo, EWG database analyst and co-author of the report. ‘But there have been studies done on human cells.’

“Aguayo told TreeHugger that in studies of human cell cultures, potassium bromate has been seen to have a genotoxic effect, or in other words, causes damage to the cell’s DNA. Aguayo said that while this doesn’t prove potassium bromate causes cancer in humans, it suggests that it could.

“Manufactu[r]ers say that the baking process converts potassium bromate into a salt, potassium bromide. But if ingredients aren’t mixed at the correct ratios, or aren’t cooked properly, the original compound may remain. The EWG report cites testing in the UK where some samples of finished bread products were found to have potassium bromate residues.”

Other dangerous bread additives

Potassium bromate, however, is just one of many chemicals found in commercial bread products. Baked goods found on grocery store shelves in the U.S. and elsewhere typically contain numerous additives that are not only potentially harmful, but actually unnecessary.

As Vani Hari, the Food Babe, noted: “It only takes 4 ingredients to make bread – flour, yeast, water and salt, there’s really no need for all that other nonsense.”

As reported by Food Babe:

“Commercially available grain-based products that line grocery store shelves and are served at restaurants are unhealthy. They are full of ingredients that are not food, like azodicarbonamide (the same chemical in yoga mats and shoe rubber), other chemical dough conditioners, added sugars, artificial flavorings or coloring and GMOs. Flour can be treated with any of the 60 different chemicals approved by the FDA before it ends up on store shelves – including chemical bleach! Also, the industrial processing destroys nutrients, such as Vitamin E and fiber.”

Even many of the bread products that look healthy are actually loaded with sugar and other questionable additives. The label may say “100% Wholewheat,” but upon closer inspection you’re likely to find high fructose corn syrup and numerous preservatives on the list of ingredients.

When you buy bread products at the grocery store, always check the ingredient list – or better yet, learn to make your own delicious natural bread at home. You’ll save money while eating healthier and – believe me – your hot, homemade bread, fresh from the oven, will smell and taste better than anything you’ll find on the supermarket shelf!

STUDY: ULTRA-LOW DOSES OF MONSANTO’S ROUNDUP CAUSE MASSIVE GENE ALTERATIONS IN LAB RATS, LEADING TO OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS

image edited by Web Investigator

New research shows that ultra-low dose exposure to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, causes massive gene alterations in lab rats, according to a study published in the journal Environmental Health.

The report is the first in a series of studies observing the effects ultra-low doses of glyphosate have on gene expression profiles and the subsequent epigenetic changes, or changes that become inherited patterns of gene function, which can lead to other health problems down the road.

The research is being led by Molecular Geneticist Dr. Michael Antoniou with King’s College in London, and Cellular and Molecular Biologist Dr. Robin Mesnage, who successfully reverse-engineered the co-formulants in Roundup.

This was a major achievement considering that the identity of the herbicide’s “inert ingredients,” as well as their health effects on humans, were unknown and poorly understood prior to Mesnage’s discovery, which found that these supposed “inactive” ingredients may be more dangerous to humans than glyphosate alone.

RESEARCH GROUP STUDIES IMPACT OF LOW-DOSE CHEMICAL EXPOSURE ON GENE EXPRESSION

Currently, Dr. Antoniou is using a bioinformatics software program called Qlucore Omics Explorer to analyze the effects ultra-low doses of glyphosate have on “gene expression profiles (transcriptomes), protein profiles (proteomes), and small molecule metabolite profiles (metabolomes) in rats and cell cultures.”

His research group, Gene Expression & Therapy Group, uses “cell and molecular analytical approaches to investigate transcriptional and post-transcriptional events that regulate gene expression including in response to various environmental stimuli,” such as commonly used pesticides and other chemical pollutants.

GETG is particularly interested in how brief chemical exposure during fetal development and early on in life permanently impacts gene control, as well as the effects of low-dose chemical exposure on the endocrine system.

“Such a fixed change in gene expression pattern can lead to all kinds of problems later in life ranging from obesity, diabetes, a propensity to certain cancers and so on,” said Dr. Antoniou.

COULD HERBICIDES BE THE CAUSE OF ANIMAL DEFORMITIES IN ARGENTINA?

If glyphosate, even in ultra-low doses, can alter gene expression during fetal development, is it possible that the herbicide can also cause severe deformation in animals?

On Monday, the Daily Mail published a shocking report revealing horrific animal mutations occurring in Argentina, the world’s largest user of glyphosate.

The mutations have quadrupled since Argentina upped its production of genetically modified soy, a crop designed to withstand high doses of Roundup. Farmers and the local media are blaming herbicides.

RATS EXPOSED TO ULTRA-LOW DOSES OF ROUNDUP SUFFER GENE ALTERATIONS

Earlier studies showed that ultra-low, environmental doses of Roundup caused damage in lab rats, which was observed in their urine, blood chemistry and anatomy.

Dr. Mesnage analyzed the transcriptomes of the livers and kidneys of ten rats exposed to ultra-low doses of Roundup for two years, as well as ten unexposed controls. The team used principle component analysis (PCA) visualization, heat map visualization and statistical analysis to observe the effects.

“Rats have around 28,000 genes, only a subset of which will be switched on in the liver and in the kidney. Each gene is a dimension of analysis so you have 28k variables, which you need to reduce to something manageable,” explains Dr. Antoniou.

“Using a PCA visualization, Qlucore allows you to graphically represent all these variables in just three dimensions, so that each animal occupies a particular location. Very quickly you can see how each animal relates to another and any treatment-related effect. If a number of animals are clustered together, you know that the effect is the same.”

HEAT MAP VISUALIZATION HIGHLIGHTS GENETIC ACTIVITY IN RATS’ ORGANS

“Heat map visualizations show the activity of each gene for each rat organ so you can see the variation in the group and whether it is homogenous,” Dr. Mesnage adds.

Using these techniques, researchers observed that the rats treated with Roundup had massive alterations in gene expression, while the control group did not.

Dr. Antoniou and Dr. Mesnage will continue their research using technology that allows them to “make predictions based on molecular ‘signatures.'”

“If you see an alteration in a certain pattern of gene function, you can compare that pattern to another batch of genes to see if the signature matches. By taking those alterations and looking at them collectively, you could predict over time that a certain health problem will be the outcome,” says Dr. Mesnage.

If such signatures can be identified, researchers will be able to conduct animal studies much faster, in a matter of months compared to years.

“Even though the exposure would be short, we are interested in whether we might still see an alteration in gene expression patterns in the blood, liver and kidney, even if the animal doesn’t show any overt health problems,” Dr. Mesnage adds.
