Thanks to environmental reporter Wes Thomas for this disturbing report on the herbicide RoundUp.  According to “Cure” reporter Beth Ford Incolligno, “RoundUp has caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other health problems in farmers and others.”  Several high-profile lawsuits claim that Monsanto knew that glyphosate, the main ingredient in RoundUp, was a health risk but “led a prolonged campaign of misinformation to convince government agencies, farmers and the general public that RoundUp was safe.”  In March 2015, The World Health Organization said glyphosate was “carcinogenic to humans.”  Monsanto denies that the ingredient causes disease. Monsanto faces a long series of trials to prove its products are safe.  Many nations, including the Russian Federation, are moving away from Monsanto-supported GMO crops.  Russian President Vladirmir Putin says his country will be GMO-free by 2020. Aloha, Russ.
