Environment and Pollution


Did Monsanto, General Electric, Westinghouse, and Bayer cause a generation of children with ADD?

There is no debate that Monsanto created an industrial toxin called a PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl), and with the help of major license holders such as GE, Westinghouse, and Bayer produced over 1.5 billion pounds of PCBs, an environmental disaster which is now directly linked to the cause of learning disabilities and ADD in children.



How PCBs Damage the Developing Brain

Researchers from UC Davis have published a collection of studies demonstrating once and for all the mechanisms explaining how PCBs, which are a widespread contaminant in the US food supply, directly alter the shape and function of brain cells causing excitotoxic changes in cells that are associated with ADHD, learning disabilities, mental retardation, and other forms of cognitive impairment.



Pollution is One Major Cause of Diabetes and Obesity

In the January 25, 2008 issue of the Lancet an article appears, which if followed up on, would positively change the health of all Americans for generations to come. The article is titled Environmental pollution and diabetes: a neglected association. It is based on a solid scientific link between insulin resistance and pollution, especially compounds like PCBs and many pesticides used on food. The industry-friendly FDA and EPA have been assuring consumers these poisons are safe to consume over the course of a lifetime – when it is very clear they are not. The scientists are making the case to massively expand research in this area – something the FDA and EPA should have demanded long ago.



“Normal” Air Pollution Poses Stroke Risk

Chemical particles in the air from cars, trucks, and industrial pollution are now linked directly to an increased risk of stroke or mini-strokes. Lynda Lisabeth, lead author and assistant professor in the University of Michigan School of Public Health stated. “The vast majority of the public is exposed to ambient air pollution at the levels observed in this community or greater every day, suggesting a potentially large public health impact.”



Common Pollution Disturbs Thyroid Health

Monsanto is one of the most disgusting corporate citizens to ever inhabit planet earth. They knowingly poisoned the world with PBCs for profit; and then went through numerous corporate reorganizations to shed legal liability. Now they are in the Frankenfood seed business; and along with their partner, Cargill, are destroying the biodiversity of crops around the globe while splicing multiple toxins into the DNA of food – tampering with the very essence of our food supply.
