Common Herbicide May Devastate Future Generations

The study provides evidence that glyphosate-induced changes to exposed rats could be used as biomarkers for determining propensity in subsequent generations for prostate and kidney diseases as well as obesity and incurring multiple diseases at once. In fact, by the time third- and fourth-generation rats whose predecessors had been exposed to the chemical were middle-aged, 90% had one or more of these health problems, a dramatically higher rate than the control group.

Organically and Conventionally grown Apples are very different

Organically and Conventionally grown Apples are very different

“Escherichia-Shigella — a group of bacteria that includes known pathogens — was found in most of the conventional apple samples, but none from organic apples. For beneficial Lactobacilli — of probiotic fame — the reverse was true.” And there may even be vindication for those who can “taste the difference” in organic produce.

Pesticide residues on produce associated with poor pregnancy outcomes

Researchers discovered that the EPA permitted level of pesticide residues of Fruits and Vegetables may have a significantly negative effect on pregnancy outcomes.
