Toxic Bayer Deception: Poisoning farmers while posing as their ally

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


glyphosate-controversy(NaturalHealth365)  Bayer, a multinational enterprise, claims to stand in solidarity with America’s hardworking farmers.  However, the company’s latest public relations effort doesn’t align with those who grow our food.

The unsavory truth is that Bayer is selling toxic materials to the farmers we depend on for healthy food.  This disconnect between Bayer’s public image and its actions raises serious questions about the company’s commitment to agricultural sustainability and public health.

Bayer promotes glyphosate, while concealing the ugly truth

Bayer, the so called “health care” and agricultural corporation, has been accused of manipulating public, governmental, and farmer perceptions of glyphosate, a toxic chemical herbicide.  The company’s influence extends to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which has been persuaded to support Bayer’s stance on glyphosate’s safety.

However, farmers and pesticide applicators are questioning Bayer’s claims.

The Lee Johnson lawsuit: A turning point

The alleged link between glyphosate and health issues came to the forefront with Lee Johnson’s lawsuit against Bayer.  Johnson, diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, claimed that Bayer’s Roundup product, which contains glyphosate, caused his cancer.  After a three-day deliberation, the jury forced Bayer to pay nearly $300 million in damages.

This landmark case revealed thousands of pages of internal documents from Monsanto, the original manufacturer of Roundup (later acquired by Bayer).  These documents allegedly contain evidence linking glyphosate to cancer as far back as the 1980s.  Furthermore, they expose a multi-million dollar public relations campaign aimed at shaping the narrative around glyphosate and preventing governmental regulation.

Health concerns surrounding glyphosate

The use of glyphosate has been associated with a tenfold increase in cancer rates across the United States.  Other health issues linked to glyphosate exposure include:

  • Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • Neurodevelopmental challenges
  • Preterm births
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Leukemia

Despite these concerns, Bayer continues to defend its product, even purchasing full-page advertisements in major newspapers to promote Roundup’s supposed benefits and safety.

Consumer action and alternatives

As a consumer, you have the power to make informed choices:

  1. Dispose of any Roundup products you may have at home.
  2. Use natural alternatives for weed control:
    • Mix dish soap, Epsom salts, and vinegar
    • Use white vinegar alone (effective for surface weeds)
    • Try horticultural vinegar for perennial weeds
    • Pour boiling water directly onto weeds
  3. Be aware that glyphosate is used on various crops, including wheat, corn, beans, and soy.
  4. Support organic farmers by purchasing produce from local farmers’ markets.
  5. Advocate for change by petitioning lawmakers to ban products containing glyphosate.

By making conscious choices and raising awareness, you can play a crucial role in addressing the glyphosate problem and promoting safer agricultural practices.
