Have you noticed that nauseating “perfume” smell coming from new trash bags and other plastic items like gardening ground cloth these days? You might think that it just smells bad, but it’s probably toxic as well. You might also think that it’s just a misguided marketing gimmick, but it may actually fulfill a purpose. Think big.
Reproductive sterility and other symptoms of endocrine disruption are already epidemic in this country, and this is certainly one of the reasons for it. Draw your own conclusions.
Is that Smelly Plastic from China Toxic?
Ever wonder why some plastic goods made in China have that awful smell? This is especially the case with many rubberized plastics.
The agri-chemical giant has a storied history of using shady tactics to attack critics and influence the media.

This is an excellent article and this is the conclusion. Link to the full article is at the end of this post.
The full nature and extent of this “weird shit” are still unknown, but Monsanto’s emails and internal documents released during litigation have brought it into sharper focus. In a January deposition, a Monsanto representative said that in 2016 the company spent “around $16 or 17 million” on activities to defend glyphosate. A July 2019 Monsanto document released during litigation details the company’s broad plan to combat Freedom of Information Act requests that have uncovered ties between the company and third-party spokespeople in academia, noting that Byrne was tasked with working with academics to support Monsanto.
Eamon Javers is the Washington correspondent at CNBC and author of “Broker, Trader, Lawyer, Spy: The Secret World of Corporate Espionage,” which traces the history of corporate spy firms such as Hakluyt. “The techniques we most often see in corporate espionage ― dumpster diving, physical surveillance, and false identities ― can supplement more staid documentary and informational research on a target,” he said.
Javers added that the public remains unaware of how these espionage efforts can help shape the news and damage a company’s critics. “Reporters are more often interested in whether the information is true or not than where it comes from.”
It’s truly unbelievable that, in this day and age, education has turned into brainwashing. Science is corrupted, altered, changed, ignored, and swept under the rug just because it threatens the interests of a few powerful people and the corporations they hide behind.
It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (source)
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s pesticide Round Up, is a perfect example, as science has been showing for decades how incredibly harmful it is for human health and the environment, yet it’s approved as ‘safe’ for use in the western world. It’s no mystery why glyphosate is illegal in the majority of countries around the world. The same goes for genetically modified foods, which is what Round Up was designed to be used on. Years ago, a lawsuit forced the FDA to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods.
Study blames Roundup herbicide for gluten intolerance and celiac disease epidemic.
“Celiac disease, and, more generally, gluten intolerance, is a growing problem worldwide, but especially in North America and Europe, where an estimated 5% of the population now suffers from it,” researchers wrote in a meta-analysisof nearly 300 studies.
“Here, we propose that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide, Roundup®, is the most important causal factor in this epidemic,” they add.
Now that glyphosate is getting the attention it deserves, being named as the culprit in a $280 million cancer lawsuit and labeled as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization and the state of California, it may be time to look at the chemical’s role in a related disease:..
Many organic farmers are going back to older practices by cultivating an environment where natural pest predators can live. They’re growing flowers amongst their other crops, creating a home for creatures like parasitic wasps, who eat aphids in their larval state. It’s been a common practice to grow flowers around the perimeter of farmland acres, because it encourages biodiversity. But agriculturalists are experimenting with strips of flowers within their crops, creating a highway for bugs to travel farther and cover more ground for pest control…
Known as “the Monsanto papers”, the evidence presented in legal cases against Monsanto includes email correspondence and corporate documents that create a comprehensive narrative of the corporation’s malfeasance and collusion with U.S. regulatory agencies.
The Australian documentary, “The Monsanto Papers” (featured below), reveals the secret tactics used by global chemical giant Monsanto (now owned by Bayer AG), to protect its bestselling herbicide, Roundup.
The film starts out with a quick history of Roundup and how its now-clearly absurd safety claims (such as “it’s biodegradable,” “safe enough to drink,” and “safer than table salt”) made it into the worlds’ most widely used weed killer, used by farmers and private gardeners alike. Indeed, it was at one time known as “the world’s most trusted herbicide,” but those days are now long gone.
Between 1974 — the year glyphosate entered the U.S. market — and 2014, glyphosate use increased more than 250 fold in the United States. Today, an estimated 300 million pounds are applied on U.S. farmland annually, and globally, nearly 5 billion pounds (over 2 billion kilograms) of glyphosate are applied to some 70 types of farm crops each year.
Roundup Is Far From Harmless
Mounting evidence suggests Roundup is far from harmless, and evidence unearthed during legal discovery shows Monsanto has been well aware of its product’s toxic nature, and has been covering it up…
Monsanto Papers Reveal Company’s Efforts to Squash Evidence of Carcinogenicity
August 10, 2018, a jury ruled in favor of plaintiff Dewayne Johnson in a truly historic case against Monsanto. Johnson — the first of 9,000 pending legal cases — claimed Monsanto’s Roundup caused his Non-Hodgkin lymphoma…

Fluoride in the water can harm more than it helps. Here’s just one more reason why we would be better off without fluoride (a toxic byproduct of the aluminum smelting industry) in our drinking water. Workers who add fluoride to the water have to wear hazmat suits to protect themselves from this caustic substance – and we are drinking it?
So what is a pineal gland and why is it important to the quality of human life?
If you’ve ever wondered where all the alpha males have gone, the interaction between chemistry and biology may offer a clue.
Gender bending chemicals are everywhere, literally impossible to avoid. They act as endocrine disruptors (EDs) that block, decrease, or overstimulate hormones. Most commonly, EDs mimic estrogen, lower testosterone and prevent the male hormone from doing its job, causing males to exhibit more female traits. The resulting hormonal imbalances may be at the root of disturbing worldwide trends for males that include delayed puberty, falling sperm counts, shrinking size of genitals, far fewer boys with far more genital deformities being born than ever before, and a rise in gender fluidity as boys are increasingly feminized. A similar effect is seen across the planet in wildlife, with reports of a rise in hermaphrodite amphibians, male fish developing eggs in their testicles and complete sex change in species with ED exposure. Governmental-industrial alliances have unleashed weapons of mass feminization throughout Planet Earth, involving all inhabitants in a dangerous and uncontrolled experiment whose results point to a dystopian future, the likes of which make Soylent Green look tame.
The NIH National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences says this about EDs:
Mass experimentation with hormones began early in the 20th century, but the term “endocrine disruptor” wasn’t coined until 1993…
Aerial spraying of insecticide to combat the spread of the Zika virus in South Carolina has resulted in the deaths of millions of bees, according to local reports…
The aerial spraying began on Aug. 28. County officials usually opt for truck spraying, but the recent spread of Zika prompted officials to use a new method—one that was detrimental to local beekeepers.
