“The Herbicide Glyphosate Causes Behavioral Changes and Alterations in Dopaminergic Markers in the Male Sprague-Dawley Rat.”

Glyphosate* is a powerful herbicide which has been reported to be neurotoxic. Male rats were injected with glyphosate of 50 mg, 100 mg, or 150 mg over two weeks, and the effect on dopamine neurotransmitter activity was evaluated in the rats to determine the effect on nerve activity.

Dopamine Pathways. In the brain, dopamine plays an important role in the regulation of reward and movement. As part of the reward pathway, dopamine is manufactured in nerve cell bodies located within the ventral tegmental area (VTA) and is released in the nucleus accumbens and the prefrontal cortex. Its motor functions are linked to a separate pathway, with cell bodies in the substantia nigra that manufacture and release dopamine into the striatum.

CONCLUSION: Glyphosate (as found in Roundup herbicide) alters dopamine neurotransmitter activity of the brains of rats. This is most likely to be true for humans as well. Further testing is needed to see if other neurotransmitters are altered by glyphosate.

USA Today: Relationship between sugar and cancer is now clearer, scientists say

Belgian scientists say they’ve made a research breakthrough in the relationship between sugar and cancer.

Researchers found yeast with high levels of the sugar known as glucose overstimulated the same proteins often found mutated inside human tumors, making cells grow faster. The finding, published in Nature Communications on Friday, aims to shed light on how cancer develops.

Oh gee , what a surprise. For 10 dollars you would have understood this problem by reading Sugar Crush. Yes, the food pyramid is a fraud, constructed by the collusion between the USDA and Monsanto.  Sugar in the form of High Fructose Corn Syrup produced and grown by Monsanto with the active ingredient Glyphosate is fueling this epidemic. Wearing Pink ribbons and pouring ice water on your head might be a great gesture to bring awareness to the problem but in reality is a fools approach to the issue. The issue is Sugar.  Read the book.

The Gene Revolution, The Future of Agriculture

Dr. Thierry Vrain retired 10 years ago after a long career as a soil biologist and ended head of a department of molecular biology running his own research program to engineer nematode resistance genes in crops. In his retirement career as a gardener he learned five or six years ago how the soil ecosystem really functions and have been preaching ever since. He find himself with a good knowledge of genetic engineering technologies surrounded by people in fear of being hurt by the food they eat. He found that he cannot ignore them anymore and has joined the campaign to educate consumers about the potential health problems reported in the recent scientific literature.
