Monsanto have come under more pressure recently after the WHO defined the main ingredient in their popular weedkiller ‘Roundup’ as a ‘probably human carcinogen’.
They are still trying to pick up the pieces from the PR disaster, but it turns out Monsanto may have been aware of the link between glyphosate and cancer for up 35 years.
Research Scientist Dr. Anthony Samsel has studies the effects on glyphosate on the human body for years, and has revealed the harmfulness of its nature. He has worked with a Dr. Stephanie Seneff, who released the warning that as many as half of all US children could be autistic by 2025 (in large part due to glyphosate exposure).
Samsel was recently able to get a look inside a file, sealed away since 1981 as a “Trade Secret” at the request of the Monsanto Company due to his field of study, and although he is not allowed to reveal the file to anyone, he is allowed to talk his thoughts on what he found, that is what might be a massive cancer cover-up that has been going on for decades.
Journalist Tony Mitra interviews Samsel in the video below about what he found. He talks of shocking evidence that showed “significant incidences of cell tumors of the tests and tumor growth in multiple organs and tissues” in lab animals.
He talks about evidence that glyphosate enters bone marrow almost immediately, which prevents the formation of new cells in living organisms.
Samsel also highlights a higher incidence of adenomas (benign tumors) and carcinomas (cancerous tumors that begin in outer tissues) is almost every single case.
In the video he says how he believes glyphosate should be considered an “unequivocal” carcinogen, rather than a “probable” one.
Watch the video and hear what Samsel has to say about the secret file:

The content of this article has potential to radically shift the world in a variety of positive ways.
And as Monsantowould love for this article to not go viral, all we can ask is that you share, share, share the information being presented so that it can reach as many people as possible.
In 2006, a patent was granted to a man named Paul Stamets. Though Paul is the world’s leading mycologist, his patent has received very little attention and exposure. Why is that? Stated by executives in the pesticide industry, this patent represents 'the most disruptive technology we have ever witnessed'. And when the executives say disruptive, they are referring to it being disruptive to the chemical pesticides industry.
What has Paul discovered? The mycologist has figured out how to use mother nature’s own creations to keep insects from destroying crops. It’s what is being called SMART pesticides. These pesticides provide safe & nearly permanent solution for controlling over 200.000 species of insects – and all thanks to the ‘magic’ of mushrooms.
Paul does this by taking entomopathogenic Fungi (fungi that destroys insects) and morphs it so it does not produce spores. In turn, this actually attracts the insects who then eat and turn into fungi from the inside out!
This patent has potential to revolutionize the way humans grow crops - if it can be allowed to reach mass exposure.
To tolerate the use of pesticides in modern agriculture is to deny evidence proving its detrimental effects against the environment. Such ignorance really can no longer be tolerated. For example, can you imagine a world without bees?
Monsanto’s chemical concoctions which are being sprayed all over farmers’ fields around the world are attributed to the large-scale bee die off. While a growing number of countries are banning Monsanto, it’s still being used in in nations who should be aware of its dangers. To say that new methods need to be implemented before it is too late is an understatement…
Monsanto presently generates USD 16 billion dollars per year (as reported in 2014), therefore you can be certain they do not want anything interrupting that flow of revenue. Such income gives them nearly limitless resources and abilities to suppress information that may be damaging their reputation.
But by becoming educated on the benefits of growing sustainable, organic, and bio-dynamic food, sharing articles like this, and boycotting GMO & herbicide-sprayed crops, the corporate demon may soon get the message.
Here are helpful links to understand more about the incredible patent discussed above:
Most of the truly important news of our times goes unnoticed, under-reported or ignored by the corporate media, and as they focus on the ever-evolving narrative of human political drama, we are missing opportunities to participate in the most important struggles of our time. Seven generations from now, the destruction of the world’s seed diversity by corporate greed will have a much greater impact on the human condition than as much as anything else we can fathom.
Seeds are absolutely vital to life on earth, but once a crop has gone extinct there is no way to revive it. In the last century alone, the world has lost at least 93% of all seed types, which had been cultivated by individual farmers around the globe for millennia providing a robust array of nutrition and sustenance.
“Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind, these subtle flecks of life are the source of all existence. Like tiny time capsules, they contain the songs, sustenance, memories, and medicines of entire cultures. They feed us, clothe us, and provide the raw materials for our everyday lives. In a very real sense, they are life itself.” [Source]
This infographic gives a startling sense of just how many varieties of seeds we’ve already lost since the early 1900’s alone.
A New Type of Agriculture
A major part of the problem is the shift toward industrial, corporate sponsored agriculture and monocultures which is now heavily dependent on corporate seed manufacturers who have through corporate business practices consolidated the seed industry and recruited the enforcement of government policy to ensure that farmers have few choices.
“Once considered to be the property of all, like water or even air, seeds have become largely privatized, such that only a handful of companies now control the global food supply.
Agriculture has been around for 10,000 years, but the privatization of seeds has only occurred very recently. In that short time, seed diversity has been decimated, farmers have been put out of business due to rising seed costs… and the pesticide companies that control most seeds today have flourished.” [Source]
In addition the rise of genetically modified seed has given corporations the power to patent seed, which is literally patenting life itself. Today, the seed industry is much like the corporate media, entirely owned by just a handful of transnational corporations.
“In 1996, there were still about 300 independent seeds companies left in the US. By 2009, there were fewer than 100.8 With the rise of GM crops and seed patents, meanwhile, the pesticide industry has been snapping up an ever-growing share of the seed industry.
Just four agrichemical companies own 43 percent of the world’s commercial seed supply, and 10 multinational corporations hold 65 percent of global commercial seed for major crops.” [Source]
Of all the burgeoning and seemingly too big to approach problems emerging in our world, saving seeds is actually one of the few that anyone can participate in, and there is a growing revolution to bring back small farm and home garden farming. Gardening and seed saving is fun, very fulfilling, and you get free fruits and vegetables. There is an abundance of online resources to help even the nive gardener participate.
If enough ordinary, conscious people make the shift and begin gardening and saving seeds, we can quickly change the course of the history, providing future generations with the freedom inherent in the access to home-grown, nutritious foods. On the other hand, if this effort is left to corporations like Monsanto and the global elite, then only the rich will have quality foods in the very near future. Already, a Doomsday Seed Vault has been constructed and stocked in the frozen wilds of Norway, supported in part by Bill Gates and the titans of GMO’s. In a dark future, this seed will be reserved, and thus life itself reserved, for the rich.
A new documentary aims to bring awareness to the issue of seed extinction and inspire people to make a difference by participating in the global effort to save seeds. Watch the trailer for the upcoming film here:
