Danger Hiding In Your Home .. 10 Products Linked To Cancer


10 Products Linked To Cancer That Are Hiding In Almost Every Home

Do you ever walk through someone’s home and take note of items that could potentially be hazardous to their health? I know I do! I don’t mean to judge, but I can’t help but notice when people have fluoride-filled toothpaste sitting on their bathroom counters or chemical-ridden cleaners hiding in their cabinets. But, what if some of these items are sitting in your own home?

Most people have toxic products linked to cancer in every corner of their homes, often without even realizing it. It’s not like the labels of these products all have a huge warning sign that reads, “I can cause cancer!”

Nevertheless, whether people knowingly purchase these cancer-causing products or not, we need to educate one another on their potential harmful effects.

The following list highlights some of the most popular products found in North American homes that are linked to cancer:

1. Shampoo

One of the most common items hiding in most people’s homes are chemical-ridden hair products, particularly shampoos and conditioners. Some of the typical chemicals within conventional shampoos include sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), parfum/fragrance, parabens, synthetic colours, and more.

Parabens are a known carcinogen, as they’re directly associated with different types of cancer; for example, one study found that 99% of breast cancer tissues tested had parabens in them. Some common ingredients in parfum/synthetic fragrances are benzene derivatives, aldehydes, phthalates, and many other toxins associated with cancer, birth defects, nervous-system disorders, and allergies.

Non-GM crops will feed the world; GMOs decrease yield, enslave farmers and destroy the environment

 

Monsanto's Roundup is a potent poison which can only be used GMO crops that are resistant, causing ba worldwide massacre that illustrates the dangers of GMO foods.

In fact, observations in Africa have found that smallholders in South Africa are actually burdened by genetically modified maize, which was forced on them through government program interventions starting in 2001. A paper in the South African Journal of Science by researchers Klara Fischer, Johnnie van den Berg and Charles Mutengwa found that South African smallholders would benefit more from a diverse selection of seed that is suitable to various growing conditions and changing pest pressures.

GMO Industry abuses Gullible Celebs to launch false ”Golden Rice Blocked by Greens” campaign

It’s easy to demonstrate (see below) that this is  a campaign of lies.  ‘Golden Rice’ has been a total flop, still doesn’t exist and so hasn’t even been presented for legalisation, never mind blocked.GMO-Rice_Filipinos-oppose_735_350_2-735x350But the damage is done.. GMO big money allies with the right wing popular media and gullible celebs to broadcast the populist message, repeated forever in the media and in homes and bars worldwide ..that ‘stupid reactionary greens are causing millions of deaths by blocking GMO ‘miracle rice’.

By the same token if anti-GMO activists had the same money and influence they could send a true and proven  message.. That by allowing and promoting GMO crops designed to work with the ‘probably carcinogenic’ glyphosate weedkiller the industry is profiting from a crime against humanity and nature, no less than a huge and continuing massacre worldwide, and has been knowingly doing so for decades! .

Pro-GMO campaign exploits Nobel laureates to attack Greenpeace and fool the people.

Golden Rice Dreams

Greenpeace is being criticized for blocking GMO golden rice – even though the crop is years away from being ready, reports Claire Robinson

A new pro-GMO propaganda campaign has been launched in which, in the words of a Washington Post article, “more then 100 Nobel laureates have signed a letter urging Greenpeace to end its opposition to genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Monsanto, los transgénicos en España y la compra de políticos..Wikileaks

monsanto550x394

  Según reveló Wikileaks la empresa Monsanto y el gobierno de EEUU ‘compraron’ secretamente el permiso de políticos españoles para introducir su  OMG Maíz, que depende de su producto cancerígeno Roundup Ready. Luego presuraron la EU con el lema Si España cae, el resto de Europa va a seguir. “ 

Nota sobre peligros del maiz transgénico

El maiz transgénico en España es de las variedades BT que matan el European Bore Beetle y mejoran algo la cosecha. ( Son de Monsanto, Sygenta y Bayer). Sin embargo son más caros y muchas veces hay que usar insecticida  también, y cada vez más debido a la creciente resistencia de los bichos. Además falta la herbicida, o la tradicional, muy tóxico o la herbicida Roundup (glifosato y el glufosinato de amonio ) según la variedad. 

Hay peligros de efectos imposibles de saber o rectificar a largo termino. Además campos de maiz normal y orgánico quedan contaminados por polinización a mucha distancia, y varios formas de vida beneficiosos quedan eliminados, especialmente mariposas y la fauna aquática. Según los nuevos hallazgos, Roundup, del que se rocían decenas de miles de toneladas al año en todo el mundo, sigue siendo tóxico para el ADN humano incluso si se diluye a un simple 0,02 por ciento , es decir un 99,8 más de lo que se hace cuando se utiliza normalmente para su uso en los cultivos transgénicos.

Sigue la presión politica y comercial para extender el ‘experimento de España’ a otros paises de la UE, argumentando que el uso de plantas genéticamente modificado puede ser algo menos peligroso porque a veces disminuye el cóctel de herbicidas, insecticidas y nitratos que ya está destruyendo la tierra cultivable.20121202_152520

Monsanto and Obama in chemical warfare against Nature

Juan Luis Berterretche ( special ARGENPRESS.info )
The US is deciding a military aggression against Syria, justified by the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad government . Here in South America for over a decade we’ve suffered chemical warfare attacks against our territory by Monsanto and their cronies, with the consent, complicity and promotion of the governments of the USA .In 2010 Obama made a shift in agricultural development policy in the U.S. and  in  foreign markets .

Monsanto Health Catastrophe in Cordoba: the worst is yet to come

montsanto in Cordoba

Diseases on the Rise: A report warns of the danger of installing a plant biotech company Monsanto in a locality in Argentina.

According to Arnulphi Cristina, member of the Union of Citizen Assemblies, the installation would have catastrophic consequences.

The survey, conducted by the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Cordoba, concluded that it was recommended that Monsanto NOT build the plant in the municipality of Malvinas Argentinas, located about 35 kilometers from Buenos Aires, due to its current health situation.

Researchers detected at that site congenital malformations, spontaneous abortions and respiratory and skin diseases, caused precisely by the spraying of the fields found in neighboring towns. Continue reading “Monsanto Health Catastrophe in Cordoba: the worst is yet to come”

Boycott Top 10 GMO foods (in US)

 

(NaturalNews) We here at NaturalNews.com pride ourselves in providing our readers with the most valuable, up-to-date news and information on a wide range of health-related issues, but we especially like to discuss nutrition because so much of our health depends on what we put in our bodies – and what we don’t put in them.
With that latter thought in mind, we’ve developed an infographic to highlight the top 10 GMO (genetically modified organism) foods to avoid, in no particular order:

1. Zucchini: It goes without saying that many biotech companies say genetically modified foods are safe for you, but as GMO science expands, reseachers are finding more evidence that such foods can harm your health. One of those is zucchini. While not as potentially harmful as other GM foods, zucchini is nonetheless “engineered” to resist some strains of virus.

2. Cotton: Considered a food item because its oil can be consumed, cotton – in particular, genetically modified Bt cotton, common to India and China – has damaging consequences. According to recent Chinese research, while Bt cotton is capable of killing bollworms without the use of insecticides, its decreased use has increased the presence of other crop-harming pests. Also, Bt cotton production has been linked to drastic depletion of soil nutrients and lower crop yields, as well as much higher water requirements.

3. Canola: This is probably one of the most misunderstood, misguided “healthy” food choices out there right now, but there is little about canola – and similar oils – that is good for you. Extracted from rapeseed, canola oil and others must be chemically removed from the seeds, then deodorized and altered, in order to be utilized in foods. They are among the most chemically altered foods in our diets.

4. Aspartame: An artificial sweetener found in a number of products, aspartame – discovered by accident in 1965 by a chemist testing an anti-ulcer drug – accounts for as many as 75 percent of adverse reactions to food additives reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), according to some reports. Some seizures and even some deaths have been blamed on aspartame.

5. Dairy: A disturbingly high number – as many as one-fifth – of dairy cows in the U.S. today are given growth hormones to increase milk production, a figure that has been rising since the FDA approved a genetically engineered recombinant bovine growth hormone known as rbGH or rbST for use in dairy cows in 1993. While said to boost production by 5-15 percent, scientists have expressed concern that the increased levels of IGF-1 (insulin growth factors-1) from hormone-treated cows may boost the risks of colon and breast cancer. Since 2008, Hiland Dairy has stopped using milk from dairy farmers who inject their cows with growth hormone.

6. Corn: Modified now to create its own insecticide, as many as half of all U.S. farms growing corn for Monsanto are using genetically modified corn, with tons of it now being introduced for human consumption, according to the FDA. Doctors at Sherbrooke University Hospital in Quebec recently found Bt toxin from modified corn in the blood of pregnant women and their babies, as well as in non-pregnant women.

7. Papayas: Genetically modified papayas have been grown in Hawaii commercially since 1999, designed to combat the Papaya Ringspot Virus. Approved for sale and consumption in the U.S. and Canada, GM papayas cannot be imported or sold in the European Union.

8. Sugar: Sugar from genetically modified sugar beets hit the market in the U.S. in 2009. They were modified by the Monsanto Corporation to be resistant to the company’s Roundup herbicide. In 2010 a group of Oregon farmers sued to stop planting that year of Monsanto’s genetically altered sugar beets over fears the crops could cross-contaminate other nearby fields.

9. Soy: Like other foods, soy, too, has been genetically modified to resist herbicides. Soy is included in soy flour, tofu, soy beverages, soybean oil and scores of other products, especially baked goods and pastries. According to one report, “[a]fter feeding hamsters for two years over three generations, those on the GM diet, and especially the group on the maximum GM soy diet, showed devastating results. By the third generation, most GM soy-fed hamsters lost the ability to have babies. They also suffered slower growth, and a high mortality rate among the pups.”

10. Yellow squashLike zucchini, yellow squash is also a fast-rising GMO crop in the U.S., and as such, should cause you concern. If you like squash – and scores of Americans do – check out a farmer’s market that doesn’t sell GMO squash or grow your own using non-modified seed.
