Internal Emails Show FDA is Withholding the Fact that Foods in Your Pantry are Laced with Toxic Weedkiller

Glyphosate is Monsanto’s flagship herbicide, appearing in hundreds of agricultural and gardening products, and although it has been linked to cancer and other serious health issues including birth defects and degenerative diseases, the FDA appears to be withholding the fact that this poison is contaminating many of the foods in your pantry.

Glyphosate has been found in a wide array of popular foods including cereals, staples like corn and soy,  Ben and Jerry’s ice creams, and even in human breastmilk, suggesting that the chemical is making it to your table whether you know it or not.

Sadly, however, the FDA, the agency tasked with protecting the American public from unsafe food, has known for sometime that traces glyphosate are found in many more foods, but after two years of looking into this, the FDA still has not issued a warning to the public.

Recently, The Guardian obtained internal FDA documents that researchers within the FDA know full well that common foods are contaminated with glyphosate. In one email, FDA chemist Richard Thompson admits that food from his own home has tested positive.

“I have brought wheat crackers, granola cereal and corn meal from home and there’s a fair amount in all of them,” FDA chemist Richard Thompson wrote to colleagues in an email last year regarding glyphosate. Thompson, who is based in an FDA regional laboratory in Arkansas, wrote that broccoli was the only food he had “on hand” that he found to be glyphosate-free.

That internal FDA email, dated January 2017, is part of a string of FDA communications that detail agency efforts to ascertain how much of the popular weedkiller is showing up in American food. The tests mark the agency’s first-ever such examination.

Furthermore, the documents show that the FDA is also aware of levels of contamination in popular foods which exceed levels considered safe for consumption.

Separately, FDA chemist Narong Chamkasem found “over-the-tolerance” levels of glyphosate in corn, detected at 6.5 parts per million, an FDA email states. The legal limit is 5.0 ppm. An illegal level would normally be reported to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), but an FDA supervisor wrote to an EPA official that the corn was not considered an “official sample”.

In other words, the FDA is doing the testing, but in an unofficial capacity, which therefore does not warrant a public warning. You and your family are consuming an unregulated amount of glyphosate.

Other findings in the documents obtained by The Guardian show that the FDA has also found glyphosate in numerous samples of honey and even oatmeal.

The decision to not inform the public is based on the complex relationship between Monsanto and the government, and the government has long demonstrated its will to stand by Monsanto who suggests that studies showing the toxicity of glyphosate are inconclusive. Never-the-less, the dangers are real, as further noted by The Guardian.

Street drug laced with BUG SPRAY transforms casual users into crazed ZOMBIES

(Natural News)
One of the least expensive but deadliest street drugs available today is known as KD, Katie or Zombie. This drug may contain different ingredients, but the common denominator is always bug spray. Users take marijuana, banana leaves, tobacco or spice and lace it with a bug spray, most often Raid. This concoction is then smoked, giving users a 45-minute high that leaves them virtually unconscious. Some people choose to make their own drugs, while others buy it for around $20 a bag. Irrespective of where they get it, however, it is incredibly addictive and absolutely lethal.

In recent weeks, Indianapolis medics have had to deal with around a dozen KD overdoses each day, with some people overdosing repeatedly on the same day. Even for those users who don’t actually overdose on KD its effects are incredibly disturbing and cause what have been described by authorities as “zombie-like” reactions.

Onlookers describe users who become “slow and lethargic,” drool, and lose all motor function or the ability to communicate with others. In short, while in the throes of a high, KD users become totally unaware of and utterly unable to control their actions.

“We find them with their clothes off, eating the grass, pulling dirt out of the ground and trying to put it in their mouth,” Fire Department Captain Chris Major told CBS-affiliate WTTV.

This is perhaps unsurprising considering the ingredients in a typical bug spray like Raid. Inquisitr reported that these sprays generally contain piperonyl butoxide, permethrin, cypermethrin and imiprothrin, among others – all of which are incredibly harmful chemicals. And, when mixed with other ingredients and smoked, this cocktail becomes even more toxic. (Related: Commonly used insecticides impair child brain development even at low exposure levels.)

“You look at what it does to a bug,” firefighter Scott Lebherz told the Indy Star, “and then you got to think what it’s doing to your brain, and your body and everything else.”

Health officials have warned that smoking this drug carries an “extreme risk of fatality,” but users become addicted so quickly that few have heeded the warnings. The fire department reports that the drug is so fast-acting that many overdose victims are found with the drug still in their hands. (Related: Is your insect repellent made from toxic ingredients?)

Men’s Health recently reported:

Bug sprays often have high concentrations of pyrethroids, a pesticide that is meant to knock out or kill bugs like roaches. According to a 2014 study by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, “Animal studies of pyrethroid toxicity have shown hyperglycemia and elevated plasma levels of noradrenaline and adrenaline” — meaning the drug will give users one big adrenaline rush before having a rapid comedown. This quick high can make it highly addictive.

Indianapolis authorities are urgently trying to determine the source of the KD being sold on the city’s streets.

The Real Reason Police Push Debunked ‘Drug-laced Candy’ Myth on Halloween

CANDYCANDY

Law enforcement across the country have taken to social media and to local news outlets to once again to “warn parents of the dangers of drug-laced Halloween candy.”

For decades, every year at this time, police and their irresponsible echo chambers in the media set out to sound the alarm that evil people will attempt to drug your kids. Over the past several years, as marijuana has become more legal throughout the country, these warnings have intensified.

The sheer lack of critical thought in blindly accepting the wholeheartedly asinine idea of people giving away expensive drugs to somehow taint the innocence of children is shocking.

Marijuana-infused candy is not cheap. The idea that a pot user would want to spend their hard earned money on the small chance that their suspiciously wrapped candy may be eaten by a child is laughable. However, the urban myth—in spite of the fact that there has never been a documented case of a child receiving tainted candy from a stranger on Halloween—continues to be rammed down society’s throat year after year.

This is no accident either.

Moral panic of this kind bubbles up every year in mid-October, and the legalization of marijuana across the country – which can take the form of edibles that resemble brownies, cookies, or candy – has added a new flavor to that familiar witches’ brew. However, as MTV News reported, “we’ve been to this dance before. The myth of poisoned or drugged Halloween candy has been going around at this time of year since at least the ‘60s. Before marijuana candies, Americans have been scared of everything from heroin to metal shards in their kids’ sugary loot.”

Despite this annual outbreak of alarm, “there’s never been a proven case of some random madman intentionally poisoning random trick-or-treaters. In fact, children are more likely to be poisoned by a family member than a stranger around Halloween.”

“I have always been skeptical of claims that maniacs try to poison kids’ treats,” observes Joel Best, a professor of sociology and criminology at the University of Delaware. “Why would they do that?”

The implicit answer, as TFTP’s William Grigg writes, from the perspective of those promoting the panic, is that drug fiends are motivated by a sadistic desire to defile childhood innocence. Just as “war on terror” propaganda cultivates a directionless fear of swarthy, savagely bearded foreigners who “hate us for our freedom,” agitprop conducted in the “war on drugs” endlessly recapitulates similar themes put into circulation decades ago by the arch-prohibitionist Harry Anslinger.

In testimony under oath before Congress in 1937, Anslinger insisted: “Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind.” As head of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, Anslinger maintained a “gore file” replete with lurid stories — many of them entirely fictitious — of marijuana-crazed people committing hideous crimes, including rape, murder, and “miscegenation.” Anslinger was endlessly preoccupied with the idea that black people are particularly susceptible to marijuana, and that one particularly acute danger posed by the demon weed was its role in breaking down the barriers against “race-mixing.”

The most important reason to outlaw marijuana, Anslinger insisted, “is its effect on the degenerate races.” Marijuana was nothing less than the drug used to seal the bloody covenants sworn by members of the ancient Order of Assassins, Ansligner tremulously informed a credulous public, and even today it plays a central role in the never-ending plot by dark and devious men who seek to steal the innocence of “Our Children.”

“There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers,” Anslinger reportedly said on one occasion. “Their Satanic music, jazz, and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.”

Following World War II, after it was documented that marijuana did not promote outbursts of violent, aggressive behavior, Anslinger reversed field entirely. By 1948, he insisted that the same drug that turned men into paranoid, predatory criminals and white women into aggressive sluts would somehow turn young people into weak-willed pacifists unwilling and unable to obey the muster call to take up arms against the Communist Menace. Sadly, the public followed in lockstep.

It is important to note that while there has never been a single case of a random child being poisoned by a stranger’s Halloween candy, the ones pushing this ridiculous myth have killed thousands—including innocent children. Police in America kill over 1,000 people a year, many of them are unarmed and innocent. But we are supposed to fear candy.

Parents whose children participate in trick-or-treating should exercise discretion and supervise them carefully, but they shouldn’t fall prey to officially-promoted urban myths. Practicing adults should know better than to be spooked by the ghost of Harry Anslinger.
