Cancer-Linked Monsanto Chemical Found in Five Major Orange Juice Brands | by Nick Meyer | July 20, 2020 | AltHealthWorks.com

As far as healthy drinks go, few are more popular in the United States than a glass of orange juice with breakfast. The average American consumes about 2.7 gallons of “OJ” per year, and about 2/3 of limited-service restaurants offer it as a beverage choice.

When properly made (especially fresh-squeezed and organic), orange juice can be extraordinarily healthy for a wide variety of reasons.

It’s rich in vitamin C, fiber, and contains antioxidants that help protect and nourish the skin among many other benefits.

But if you drink orange juice in the United States, you may be getting far more than you bargained for — a surprisingly high dose of one of the most controversial chemicals in the world, one that happens to be linked to cancer, and also serves as the main ingredient in Monsanto’s flagship herbicide.

And unfortunately for the many thousands of people who drink them every day, the most popular brands in the United States are among those most affected.

Lab Tests Reveal Glyphosate in Orange Juice Samples

The grassroots non-profit Moms Across America has made a remarkable impact in the world of food activism, helping to expose the Monsanto Company’s link to the American Pediatrics Association (they’ve since been given the boot) and keeping its members up-to-date on how to protect their families from toxic chemicals in the food supply.

Recently, the organization made waves with an announcement that caught the attention of orange juice drinkers everywhere: samples of five major U.S. brands tested positive in lab results for glyphosate.

The chemical, deemed a “probable human carcinogen” by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer in March 2015, was found in amounts ranging from 4.43 parts per billion to 26.05 ppb by the group’s tests.

As noted in this post from Moms Across America, research has shown that as little as 0.1 ppb of glyphosate is capable of destroying beneficial gut bacteria. Repeated exposure is capable of weakening the immune system and potentially leading to a host of health problems down the road.

The post also included research that glyphosate may stimulate breast cancer at amounts as little as 1 part per trillion, and that the American diet far exceeds government standards for most people, especially children (who are most at-risk considering their developing bodies).

The five major brands that tested positive according to lab tests are:

1. Tropicana, with amounts of 26.05 ppb and 25.12 ppb in glyphosate residues. Both samples were purchased from Target stores.

2. Minute Maid, with amounts of 13.54 and 12.65 ppb, purchased from Jack in the Box stores.

3. Stater Bros., with amounts of 4.93 and 4.43 ppb, purchased at the stores of the same name.

4. Signature Farms (sold at Safeway), with amounts of 6.33 and 5.78 ppb, purchased at Vons stores.

5. Kirkland, with amounts of 5.96 and 4.33 ppb, purchased at Costco stores.

What It Means for Shoppers

Kirkland orange juice, found at Costco, is among those that tested positive.

Considering that organic alternatives like Uncle Matt’s are widely available, it’s almost always a good idea to pay a little extra in order to avoid the potential contamination of glyphosate and other harmful substances in non-organic orange juice.

In addition to glyphosate, numerous orange juice companies may contain additives including synthetic vitamins (in an attempt to make up those lost due to processing and pasteurization), as well as so-called “flavor packs” that are likely to be chemically altered and are not required to be listed on product labels.

Truckers and Vegans For a Free World | From Judy Carman | PeaceToAllBeings.com

To those of you who are working so hard to create a vegan world of peace and freedom for all beings, I want to say how much I love and admire every one of you for your selflessness and for demonstrating with such grace how to live as Homo Ahimsa. But I am also in awe of the many people who are selflessly sacrificing their time and nonviolently enduring the viciousness and violence of those bent on the control of us all. They may not be vegan yet. They may not have connected all the dots yet, but neither have we.

 

A few days ago in Canada an elderly man was pulled out of his vehicle, handcuffed and forcibly taken to jail. His crime? He honked in support of the 60,000 (and counting) truckers who are currently rallying in Canada in an ongoing peaceful protest for freedom. Like activists for peace, animals, and the environment, the truckers and this elderly man are considered terrorists.

Why?

  • Because they believe all human beings have an inalienable right to freedom from government control and freedom of speech and assembly.
  • Why are animal activists and vegans considered terrorists, subject to jail and fines for protecting suffering animals? Because we believe that all beings, including the human ones, deserve absolute and inviolable freedom.
  • Why are peace activists considered terrorists? Because they think war is a very bad idea—useful to governments, the war machine and central banks, lethal for us.
  • Why are activists for the earth considered terrorists? Because they want to stop the reckless destruction of the earth by the power elite.
