A recent study from Germany found that 16 mothers in several different areas of the country tested for high levels of glyphosate in their breastmilk.
Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse also released a study last year which found 3 out of 10 moms tested had levels ten times higher than were allowed in drinking water. But wait –Monsanto has conducted their own test through Washington State University, and found that American mothers’ breast milk is glyphosate-free.
In Germany, mother’s tested were found to have traces of glyphosate amounting to between 0.210 and 0.432 nanograms per mililitre. Approximately 0.100 nanograms is what is allowed in drinking water there. Yet we are to believe that in the US of A, where more glyphosate and GMOs are grown arguably than almost anywhere else in the world, mom’s are glyphosate free?

That’s what Dr. Michelle (Shelley) McGuire and a team of researchers from Washington State University (WSU), including Monsanto, is telling us in a study that has allegedly found US mothers’ breast milk to be without traces of the chemical most often found in Monsanto’s Round Up.
In a WSU Press Release, Mcguire said their study:
“. . .strongly suggests that glyphosate does not bioaccumulate and is not present in human milk.”
This isn’t the first time WSU has sided with biotech, though one researcher from the University said that modified crops increases the use of hebicides – like Round Up. Conflict of interest anyone?
The McGuire family have long been very close to Monsanto and Dr. Shelley McGuire’s husband Dr. Mark McGuire, Animal and Veterinary Science Department Head at the University of Idaho, who was deeply involved in the scientific promotion of Monsanto’s infamous recombinant bovine growth hormone Posilac.
Sustainable Pulse also reports other nefarious ties:
“Dr. Mark Mcguire is also a close personal friend of Dr. John Vicini, Monsanto’s Food Safety Scientific Affairs Lead.
Dr Mark McGuire’s research is also funded by the Gates Foundation, which is strongly promoting GM crops and their associated pesticides including glyphosate, especially in Africa.
Dr. Shelley McGuire is herself the spokesperson for the American Society of Nutrition, which has disclosed massive conflicts of interest. The list of food companies for which they consult or advise includes Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, The Sugar Association, The National Restaurant Association, ConAgra, McDonald’s, Kellogg, Mars, and many others.”

I read this rubbish yesterday. They didn’t hide the fact that she worked in conjunction with Monsanto researchers, but where the lying and bogus wording comes in is where they call this “AN INDEPENDENT STUDY” which is a flat out lie. Numerous professors over there champion Monsanto’s side of things, especially the Landscaping & Gardening Extension Professors who have always demonized anyone through the usual tactics of speaking from authority and citation bluffing anyone who would be against GMOs. So not surprise here. Curious as to how much money the university receives. As for personal monetary contributions to authoritative academic supporters and other researchers, well that’s why numbered bank accounts and blind trusts were created.
Monsanto and others in the agri/chem/biotech industry have also bribed or intimidated formerly reputable journals into Refusing to accept scientifically truthful anti-GMO ads.
Monsanto lies and is deliberately, knowingly poisoning people worldwide with its falsely advertised (as ‘safe’) carcinogenic glyphosate-laden GMO crops. Monsanto personnel should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity and treason. I note this every time I contact ‘my’ legislators, but they’re all too cowardly to introduce a call for investigation.
Yeah we shouldn’t trust this, yet to be published, study. We should always take at face value a study never published if it agrees with us.
Trust this home realtor. Didn’t you see her car selfy? I’m sure her degree in not science can inform her on spectometric identification of organic compounds.
Monsatan and Biotech days are numbered because they corrupting and poisoning life on earth.
They will be here long after your gone, have no fear.
Keep dreaming, Monsatan Robert, because that won’t happen when The King Of kings will arrive very soon, He will change all that and eliminate all these corrupt human governments.
The King of Kings is within all of us…
It is frightening that money controls our world, but it’s nothing new, is it? Ever since WW2 and probably before, the people making weapons and bombs of war are not making things to kill us and our planet!!!
MAA admits their “study” was a pilot, not a true scientific study that will ever be peer-reviewed and published in a scientific journal. The science-based study by WSU will be published due to its rigor and use of the scientific method.
