Thousands of articles are published about the inherent dangers of toxic herbicides to people, soil, water and food safety, and the lack of oversight by governmental regulatory agencies.
Here are some to Learn More About It!
WILPF does not confirm that all of these studies and articles are accurate.
This list is meant to provide an overall awareness of the kinds of statements being made by scientists about Glyphosate and other toxic chemicals used on our food, in order to open the dialogue and make the public aware of the controversy.
In doing so we want to point towards the strategic alliance between
- BIG AG (using power and influence to put profits ahead of sustainability, using power and influence to OWN the patents and seeds the world relies on for food),
- BIG PHARMA (drug & chemical corporations which stand to gain much by continually developing new medicines and treatements for ills that may be caused by the way we eat today),
- BIG OIL (producing the foundations for much of these chemicals) and
- BIG FOOD (limiting the choices of Americans by consolidating ownership of distribution channels and campaigning aggressively to prohibit GMO labeling and to keep the status quo in place without regard to safety and future impact for the environment, clean water, soil nutients and biodiversity.

Making It Illegal To Save Seeds.
Farmers have saved seeds from one crop to the next to replant for eons. There is safety in keeping seeds, as well as economy. Seeds have traditionally carried within them the spark of life that can reproduce new plants. But Monsanto’s “Terminator Seeds” are designed to carry the spark of life only for one crop season. These new patented seeds are unable to be saved and replanted, guaranteeing that farmers will buy seeds year after year. Where are the ‘pro-life’ voices objecting to this form of life-killing food crop seed? Instead Monsanto has paid big money to make saving seeds illegal in America and other countries.
Monsanto Behind Legislation That Would Police Rural Communities and Intimindate Seed-Saving Farmers , Rural Advancement Foundation International. March, 1999. About Ohio, this policy is now being pushed in every state and many countries. Monsanto has even been able to link the exclusive sale of terminator seeds to trade agreements, world bank loans and foreign aid packages. So much for the ‘myth’ of a free market.
