In fact, an analysis showed that farmers sprayed enough glyphosate in 2014 to apply 0.8 pounds of the chemical to every acre of cultivated cropland in the U.S., and nearly 0.5 a pound of glyphosate to all cropland worldwide.
As you might suspect, when you use this much of a chemical, it doesn’t simply stay on the fields. Laboratory testing commissioned by the organizations Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse revealed that glyphosate is now showing up virtually everywhere.
Monsanto’s ‘Gift’ to Newborns
The analysis revealed glyphosate in levels of 76 μg/L to 166 μg/L in women’s breast milk. As reported by The Detox Project, this is 760 to 1,600 times higher than the EU-permitted level in drinking water (although it’s lower than the U.S. maximum contaminant level for glyphosate, which is 700 μg/L.)2
This dose of glyphosate in breastfed babies’ every meal is only the beginning. An in vitro study designed to simulate human exposures also found that glyphosate crosses the placental barrier. In the study, 15 percent of the administered glyphosate reached the fetal compartment.
Angelika Hilbeck, Ph.D., senior scientist at the Institute of Integrative Biology in Zurich, told The Detox Project:3
“If confirmed in a full investigation, it seems that glyphosate has become a ubiquitous chemical in terms of presence and persistence.
This data also offers a first indication of potential accumulation in the human body, giving newborns a substantial dose of synthetic chemicals as a ‘gift’ for their start into life, with unknown consequences.
This is reckless and irresponsible conduct in a democratic society, which still has a living memory of previous reckless chemical contaminations, such as DDT.”
Glyphosate Found in Blood and Urine Samples
The analysis revealed glyphosate in additional samples as well, including the blood of non-pregnant Canadian women. Their average level was 73.6 μg/L, which is similar to the concentration found to have endocrine-disrupting effects in vitro.
Further, glyphosate was also detected in urine samples, and U.S. women had maximum glyphosate levels that were more than eight times higher than levels found in urine of Europeans.
Where is the glyphosate exposure coming from? It’s likely coming from food (although it could be in water as well). We don’t know exactly how much glyphosate may be in your food because the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) does not test for it.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just announced in February 2016 that it would begin testing foods for glyphosate, however, which will help to quantify just how much glyphosate Americans are consuming.
For now, the analysis suggests that eating non-organic, genetically engineered (GE) foods (the prime candidates for Roundup spraying) is associated with higher glyphosate levels in your body. The Detox Project explained:4
“Glyphosate levels have been found to be significantly higher in urine of humans who ate non-organic food, compared with those who ate mostly organic food. Chronically ill people showed significantly higher glyphosate residues in their urine than healthy people.
In a separate detailed analysis, glyphosate was found in the urine of cows, humans, and rabbits. Cows kept in a GM-free area had significantly lower glyphosate concentrations in urine than cows in conventional livestock systems.”
Glyphosate Is Contaminating Air and Water
Glyphosate and its degradation product, aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA), were detected in more than 75 percent of air and rain samples collected during the 2007 growing season in the Mississippi Delta agricultural region.5
This could be even higher now, as since 1996 the use of glyphosate has risen nearly 15-fold.6 The testing commissioned by Moms Across America also found glyphosate in 13 of 21 U.S. drinking water samples tested.7
They contained glyphosate levels between 0.085 ug/l and 0.33 ug/l, which is only slightly below the EU maximum allowed level for glyphosate in drinking water of 0.1 ug/l. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standard for glyphosate in U.S. water supplies is 0.7 ppm.
Further, a 2012 analysis used a magnetic particle immunoassay to test for the presence of glyphosate in roughly 140 samples of groundwater from Catalonia, Spain. The analysis found that glyphosate was present above the limit of quantification in 41 percent of the samples.
This suggests the chemical does not break down rapidly in the environment, as its manufacturer claims, and instead it might be accumulating (both in the environment and in people).
Groundwater, which is water from rain, lakes, streams or other bodies of water that soaks into soil and bedrock, can easily become contaminated when chemicals in the soil with low biodegradability and high mobility empty into it.
When groundwater is used as a drinking water source, this contamination poses a risk to animals, plants and humans alike.

“From the moment the first leader of the first clan in human history took charge, he busied himself with this question: ‘What can I say and do that will make my people react the way I want them to.’ He was the first Pavlov. He was the first psychologist, the first propagandist, the first mind-control boss. His was the first little empire. Since then, only the means and methods have changed.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
I include my original article below. I want to provide a new introduction, based on the notion of “expanding thought-forms.”
A thought-form is a picture in the mind that tends to guide behavior. Its presence is usually unknown to the user.
If the behavior results in objective successes in the world, the thought-form expands, takes on more force, and even can pretend to a sense of inevitability.
Sometimes, for example, in war, an Alexander, operating from his thought-form of conquest, and piling up victories, begins to see himself destined to be the “ruler of the whole world.”
The dominant thought-form in Earth civilization today is: universal rule through gigantic, highly organized structures; e.g., mega-corporations that owe no allegiance to any nation.
Imagine a few thousand such corporations with interlocking boards and directorates; colluding with super-regional governments and their honeycombed bureaucracies; combined with regional armies, intelligence agencies and technological elites; hooked to a global surveillance operation; in control of media; cooperating with the largest organized religions on Earth.
Imagine all this as essentially one organization—and you see the thought-form in its wide-screen version.
Top-down as top-down has never been before.
Functions and compartments defined and specialized at every level, and coordinated in order to carry out policy decisions.
As to why such a thought-form should come to dominate human affairs, the simplest explanation is: because it works.
But beneath that answer, for those who can see, there is much, much more.
Individuals come to think that “effective” and “instrumental” and “efficient” are more important than anything else.
Keep building, keep expanding, keep consolidating gains—and above all else, keep organizing.
Such notions and thought-forms replace life itself.
At that point, the civilization is doomed. It may take a thousand years to fall, or it may happen all at once. But it’s finished.
The individual creative-force has gone into hibernation. It’s over.
The Machine has come to the fore. All questions are now about how the individual sees himself fitting into the structure and function of The Machine.
Which cog does he want to be part of? At which level?
Which piece of the latest technology does he want to adhere to, like a barnacle?
—end of introduction—
I’ve spent the past 30 years analyzing, taking apart, and exposing highly centralized structures:
Government, supra-government, corporate, energy, intelligence, education, medical, mind-control, media, organized-religion structures; those are some of the targets.
They all operate on the basis of stimulus-response.
The elite future is stimulus-response. It’s based on the premise that humans are inherently (biologically) programmed to be dangerous and the programming must change. In other words, a better Pavlovian dog must be created.

This bit of good news was shared by Mr. W.M., and it concerns the U.S. Senate’s rejection of a bill that has been dubbed the “Denying Americans the Right to Know Act,” which would have created a federal law rejecting state GMO labelling law requirements:
The bill, authored (not surprisingly) by Kansas US Senator Pat Roberts, has been rejected. But there is a cautionary tale (or perhaps, cautionary tail) here:
Another common message from many Senators was the need to continue negotiating about the contents of this bill. But more compromise will not fix the problem at the core of Sen. Roberts’ approach: Blocking state laws that require GMO labeling will strip away the ability of states to protect the public’s right to know what is in its food. Any version of this bill that would result in anything less than mandatory on-package labeling is unacceptable.
People want to know if the food they buy contains GMO ingredients. It’s time for Congress to create a mandatory on-package labeling requirement so people can decide for themselves whether they want to eat a food that has been produced using genetic engineering.

The critics were befuddled. One critic jumped out of his window and crashed on the street below. Oh well.
The painting hung in a gallery on Madison Avenue. No one who worked at the gallery was there.
People came in. Lots of people. They looked at the painting and screamed and laughed and shrugged and scratched and fell down and ran away and stood transfixed and wept and one doyen of the arts pulled her upper bridge out of her mouth and dropped it on the floor and started talking to it…
Some people said nothing was on the canvas and some people said everything was on the canvas. Looking at it objectively…well, apparently, there was no way to look at it objectively. There was no way to say: this is exactly what’s on the canvas.
A local preacher said the painting was a crime.
A few CIA men showed up, of course. They stood in front of the painting for a minute and then they tore off their clothes and ran around the gallery gibbering, and said, in unison: “we are television.”
A professor then said, “Of course. The painting is television.”
A hooker who dropped by to get out of the rain stood in front of the painting and said, “Mathematics cannot be reduced to logic. Bertrand Russell was wrong.”
A retired astronaut walked in and said, “We never went to the moon. We went to Mars.”
A cameraman for a local TV station said, “I just fell into the painting. Somebody call 911. I’m on the sixteenth hole in the woods looking for my ball.”
Three physicists from Columbia stood there and agreed the painting was a miniature black hole in which the force of gravity was 10 to the 28th power greater than…utopia.
Cops came in, drew their weapons, and shot at the painting, and nothing happened. Apparently.
A student from a local high school said: “Bernie and Trump both agree that trade treaties are killing America. Don’t you people get it?”
A homeless man wandered in, stood in front of the painting, and said: “This is the power of a painter who made his own spontaneous unrolling process or whatever it is stronger than the physical world and in those moments the subjective became objective, which is impossible, but it happened, and this is the problem. The law is, it can’t happen, it’s not allowed to happen, but it did. We’re talking about an addiction to the objective, an addiction so deep that no one wants to cure it, you see? No one. People will die before they admit it could happen. People will kill before they admit it could happen. They’ll go to war and blow other people to pieces to keep it from happening. They’ll elect one idiot after another to public office to keep it from happening. They’ll jump off a cliff. Objectivity of things—that’s the ultimate protection racket and everybody is in on it. All the way. The physical world is what’s real and it has to be real and it has to be the only thing that’s real and we all have to be addicted to that, and if anybody comes along who can make his subjective thoughts and feelings as real as that and even more real…well, that’s impossible, but it just happened. That’s what the painting is. That’s why it’s invisible to us. But it still has an effect. Lots of effects…
