Belizeans: What You May Want to Know about Monsanto's Round Up, Glyphosate and Cancer
On June 7th, 2017 an article was published in the Amandala newspaper - BELIZEANS: A TICKING TIME BOMB.
the article stated:
"The facts and statistics tell the true story of the condition of our flour here in Belize, the grain for which is imported by ADM (Archer, Daniels, Midland, a US company out of Chicago, Illinois (USA), and milled by the same company under the name of Belize Mills Ltd. in Belize City. The Belize Mills, ADM online website states that the grain supplied to Belize Mills originates in the US."
It also went on to state:
"Many independent, peer-reviewed published scientific papers have demonstrated the relationship of glyphosate to many diseases, in particular the maladies that most affect Belizeans, diabetes, cancer and stroke."
Today, June 27, 2017 CBS published an article - INGREDIENT IN ROUNDUP WEED KILLER GOING ON LIST AS POTENTIALLY CANCEROUS.
The article stated "FRESNO, Calif. -- Regulators in California took a pivotal step on Monday toward becoming the first state to require the popular weed killer Roundup to come with a label warning that it's known to cause cancer."
"Officials announced that starting July 7 the weed killer's main ingredient, glyphosate, will appear on a list California keeps of potentially cancerous chemicals."
In Belize we are consuming more and more imported food.
It is important that we closely monitor and pay attention to what we are eating.
It is not a coincidence that diabetes, heart disease and cancer are the # 1, #2 and #3 killer of Belizeans.
May God bless and save Belize.
