Obesogens are known as “endocrine disruptors” because they interfere with the chemical messaging of hormones to cells by turning on, shutting off or modifying signals. The endocrine system consists of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, and more. Some obesogens affect the number or size of fat cells, while others impact hormones associated with metabolism. Fetal and early life exposure to obesogens may alter fat-cell makeup and metabolism. Adults are at risk, too.
Environmental pollutants may alter the body’s metabolism and predispose some individuals to weight gain.
Glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s popular Roundup brand of pesticides, is one of the world’s most widely used weed killers. It has been determined to be safe, if applied properly, by many regulatory agencies, including those of the United States and European Union.
On May 1, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency even raised the allowable levels of glyphosate residues in food, concluding that based on studies presented by Monsanto, “there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result to the general population or to infants and children from aggregate exposure.”

As the once-vilified drug becomes more accepted, researchers around the world are trying to understand how it works and how it might fight disease.
THERE NO SUCH THING AS #Organic!!!! #WakeUp #ToxicCrops
The USDA's National Organic Program (NOP) presently regulates the definition of organic. According to NOP guidelines, any multi-ingredient product that contains 95% or more organic ingredients (excluding water and salt) may be labeled "organic." Therefore the Copper Sulfate in example, used in EVERY Organic Soil mix as a nutrient... Yet unfortunately, its toxicological classification you will find that, according to the Dangerous Substance Directive (one of the main European Union laws concerning chemical safety), Copper Sulfate is "Harmful (Xn), Irritant (Xi) and Dangerous for the environment (N).
But it gets even more interesting. Part 205.601 of the NOP's guidelines specifies that copper sulfate is a "synthetic substance allowed for use in organic crop production," as long as it is used in a way that "minimizes accumulation of copper in the soil."We can assume, therefore, that its classification as an acceptable synthetic substance for use in organic crop production, it has evaded raising red flags among regulators....
Faced with chemically-watered down USDA Organic Standards, the time has come to look to truly organic agriculture (you know, what our grandparents simply called "food"), produced locally, and whenever possible with permaculture and biodynamic farming practices, which do not allow chemicals of any kind into their self-sustaining systems.
#WeThePeople need to hold manufacturers accountable. Advocate the Precautionary Principle, and put the burden of proving copper sulfate, sodium selenite, and various other chemicals being used, turning exposed populations into guinea pigs by using animal-based toxicological risk assessment models to determine the highly Orwellian "acceptable level of harm."
6 SCARY SUNSCREEN INGREDIENTS
1)Oxybenzone This penetration enhancer (i.e., chemical that helps other chemicals penetrate the skin) undergoes a chemical reaction when exposed to UV rays. When oxybenzone is absorbed by your skin, it can cause an eczema-like allergic reaction that can spread beyond the exposed area and last long after you're out of the sun. Experts also suspect that oxybenzone disrupts hormones (i.e., mimics, blocks, and alters hormone levels) which can throw off your endocrine system. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 97 percent of Americans have this chemical circulating in our bodies, as it can accumulate more quickly than our bodies can get rid of it.
2)Octinoxate One of the most common ingredients found in sunscreens with SPF, octinoxate is readily absorbed by our skin and helps other ingredients to be absorbed more readily. While allergic reactions from octinoxate aren't common, hormone disruption is: the chemical's effects on estrogen can be harmful for humans and wildlife, too, should they come into contact with the chemical once it gets into water. Though SPF products are designed to protect skin from sun-induced aging, octinoxate may actually be a culprit for premature aging, as it produces menacing free radicals that can damage skin and cells.
3)Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A Palmitate) Just like the vitamin A we eat, retinyl palmitate is an antioxidant. As an ingredient in sunscreen, it's function is to improve the product's performance against the aging effects of UV exposure, However, certain forms of vitamin A found in sun protection products—namely retinyl palmitate, a combination of retinol (vitamin A) and palmitic acid, an ingredient found in tropical plants such as palm and coconut—can be cause for concern. When exposed to the sun's UV rays, retinol compounds break down and produce destructive free radicals that are toxic to cells, damage DNA, and may lead to cancer. In fact, FDA studies have shown that retinyl palimitate may speed the development of malignant cells and skin tumors when applied to skin before sun exposure, so steer clear of skin sun products that harbor the stuff.
4)Homosalate This UV-absorbing sunscreen ingredient helps sunscreen to penetrate your skin. Once the ingredient has been absorbed, homosalate accumulates in our bodies faster than we can get rid of it, becomes toxic and disrupts our hormones.
5)Octocrylene When this chemical is exposed to UV light, it absorbs the rays and produces oxygen radicals that can damage cells and cause mutations. It is readily absorbed by your skin and may accumulate within your body in measurable amounts. Plus, it can be toxic to the environment.
5)Paraben Preservatives Associated with both acute and chronic side effects, parabens (butyl-, ethyl-, methyl-, and propyl-) can induce allergic reactions, hormone disruption, developmental and reproductive toxicity. While butylparaben was reported to be non-carcinogenic in rats and mice, but it has been previously suspected that parabens and other chemicals in underarm cosmetics may contribute to the rising incidence of breast cancer.

We must have medical freedom of choice. For us to achieve those changes, we have to overcome a far tougher opponent than cancer.
Alan C. Nixon Ph.D., past president of the American Chemical Society writes, "As a chemist trained to interpret data, it is incomprehensible to me that physicians can ignore the clear evidence that chemotherapy does much, much more harm than good." In addition, it is alarming to note that very few doctors would take their own medicine if they contracted cancer. In one survey of 118 doctors, 79 responded. Fifty-eight (73%) said they would never take any chemotherapy due to its high toxicity and ineffectiveness.
Let's now discuss the cancer establishments. Or who I like to call the "U.S. Cancer Mafia". The agencies involved are the National Cancer Institute (NCI), American Cancer Society (ACS), Federal Drug Administration (FDA), and American Medical Association (AMA).
1) National Cancer Institute (NCI):
A little known fact is that many drugs developed by the NCI, at taxpayer expense, are then handed over to pharmaceutical companies who reap the massive profits. A good example of this is the anticancer drug Taxol which was approved in 1992. The NCI had spent a fortune on clinical trials and developing the drugs' manufacturing process. They then gave exclusive rights to Bristol-Myers Squibb who charge us $4.87 per milligram, twenty times what it costs to make.
2) The American Cancer Society (ACS):
About half of the ACS board is comprised of oncologists, radiologists, clinicians and others with a vested interest in traditional cancer research. Key ACS and NCI officials often sit on each others committees. ACS board members and their colleagues receive grants from one or both institutions. Which guarantees that the vast majority of funding stays within orthodox medicine.
What happens to the hundreds of millions of dollars the ACS collects every year? Well in September 1990, a study by Dr. James T. Bennett of George Mason University concluded; "The American Cancer Society...had a fund balance of $426.2 million in 1988, and it held net investments (after depreciation) in land, buildings and equipment of $69 million. That same year, the ACS spent only $89.2 million, or 26% of its budget on medical research."
3) The Federal Drug Administration (FDA):
In 1970, former FDA commissioner Dr. Herbert Ley said, "The thing that bugs me is that the people think the FDA is protecting them. It isn't. What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it is doing are as different as night and day."
In 1974 eleven FDA scientists testified in the Senate "...That they were harassed by agency officials...Whenever they recommended against approval of marketing some new drug."
Last year, nearly 75% of the drugs approved by FDA lacked any proof that they extended life. Instead, they were based on approved surrogate measures. Critics say that using surrogate measures to determine if a drug should be approved can backfire. Surrogates can mask complications that work against survival or quality of life, said Richard Deyo, a professor of evidence-based medicine at Oregon Health and Science University.
Experts say the FDA has set up a system that favors technical benefits over proven longevity and quality-of-life improvements. It is a system that turns out expensive cancer drugs that often offer little benefit, said Leonard Saltz, chief of gastrointestinal oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. "If we set a higher standard, we're going to walk away and make ourselves do better," he said. "But that's not what's happening."
4) The American Medical Association (AMA);
The AMA is responsible for licensing of all Doctors in America. They play an important role in suppressing alternative treatments by networking with the ACS and FDA in identifying and punishing doctors that step out of line.
On February 6, 1973, two former chairman and one vice chair of the AMA's council on drugs testified before Congress and said that the AMA was, "...A captive of and beholden to the pharmaceutical industry." In 1987 the AMA was found guilty of conspiring for 20 years to destroy the profession of chiropractitioners.
The supposed "war on cancer" is little more than a grand illusion conjured up by the cancer establishments propaganda gurus. There is a war of protectionism. Protecting the status quo, protecting the grant money trough, and above all, protecting the pharmaceutical cartels' monopoly. There never was a determined, no holds-barred war on cancer. The formula is eons old. Repeatedly chiseled the message into peoples psyches; "cancer breakthrough", "scientists say they are "...Turning the tide on cancer." We've become unwitting human satellites, bouncing the deception from one person to another...
There is a fanatical and hate-filled war being waged against the few courageous doctors and innovative healers who prescribe natural treatments. They all have two things in common. The people advocating the therapy are branded charlatans or quacks, and the treatment is denounced as worthless by scientists who have been selling us out for generations.
A radical change in cancer research is needed. The natural, nutritional and other innovative approaches should be studied and made available to cancer patients immediately. This battle Royal against the $110 BILLION a year cancer industry. Which ultimately, our greatest enemy is apathy.
To succeed, we will need people willing to step up to the plate and speak out, undeterred by being labeled "politically incorrect". We will prevail. It's inevitable. Because when good women and men put their minds to something, the mightiest walls of oppression can and will be shattered.
