Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

A class activity lawsuit has been submitted versus Monsanto. Cenk Uygur as well as Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why people are taking legal action against. Tell us exactly what you believe in the remark section listed below.

"( CNN) Christine Sheppard fantasizes regarding her life prior to cancer. Prior to she needed to take medicines "regularly." Prior to she needed to seriously fret about when she may pass away.

" I figured out something was incorrect because my best leg inflated tremendously," Sheppard said. "They did an ultrasound as well as found I was completely full of these lymph nodes. It was phase IV large-cell lymphoma."

Difficult chemotherapy treatments have started robbing her of wheelchair. "It's an unusual nerve point," she said. "I do not always recognize where my feet are. I need to overlook to see where they are."

As well as the signs "will certainly be considerably worse. There's no cure. Ultimately, I will probably wind up relatively debilitated."

    There is no risk to GMOs. Hundreds upon hundred of studies have shown no harmful effects of GMOs, at least compared to the crap we usually eat.
    You sound like the vaccine nutjobs.

      If there are hundreds of studies why don’t you show me a list then?

      all these 11 year old morons who can’t accept nuance.. they never said GMOs are bad

      Why are you asking me to do your research? Did you have your mom write your research papers for you?
      There was a cumulative Italian study done a few years ago that looked at over a thousand studies, and couldn’t find a single one showing harmful effects for humans. I’m not looking it up for you, because I already looked it up for myself a while ago.

      you could hand them a print out of every study, with contact details for each researcher, and they’d still complain about it. Some people can’t accept that their beliefs may be based on false information, they’ve spent so much time being angry and upset that they don’t want to realise all that emotion and energy has been wasted. Confirmation bias – they’ll readily accept what an unemployed stoner hippy screams out at a protest, but deny peer reviewed studies as all scientists are paid off by big pharma…

    Okay guys. You scream the right wing are anti science. This is argument Monsanto. You yourself are being anti science with this.

    Knowledge is power. Educate yourself about the topic. You might understand politics. You don’t understand science. GMO does not equal cancer.

    Not a bot here… Assuming this is true, just remember that the alternatives to Roundup are almost universally more dangerous. It’s definitely something worth mentioning. Also GMOs have been SCIENTIFICALLY verified to be safe and will play a pivotal role in feeding the world as climate change and overpopulation become bigger issues. Do not let your anti-corporatism blind you Cenk and Ana.

      Takyr Dai hate to break it to you but you have no idea what you’re talking about. We use herbicides to get rid of weeds. Unless you’re suggesting we hire millions of people to hand-weed millions of acres of land when we can barely get enough illegal immigrants to pick strawberries you have no leg to stand on. And btw the whole point of modern agriculture is to maximize yield per acre. Which btw GMOs do as well. If we used more space as you suggest we would deforest and destroy countless more ecosystems in the process.

      There is plenty of safe pesticides. There’s an organic pesticide that takes the oils from Chrysanthemum Flowers. And you can turn in to a “Tea” you can spray on your crops and will kill/deter any unwanted bugs.

      Here, let me just list some other organic and safe options instead of RoundUp.
      – Ecualyptus Oil
      – Garlic and Onion Spray
      – Citrus Oil + Cayenne Pepper

      That’s just what I found to be the best out of what I did see when I did a little research into it. I knew prior of the Chrysanthemum Flower, but I’m just letting you know there is safe and easy ways to make pesticides that won’t give people risk of cancer.

      Garlic and Onion spray sounds like the easiest to make. So really, is there no other option but RoundUp?

    All toxins will poison you …. Glyphosate is one of the worst …. Eat organic and non-GMO

    • Posted by BestofNate, at Reply

      I think they were indicating that the plants exposed to substance had to be genetically modified to survive and therefore a lot of GMO plants have been exposed to this potentially cancer-causing pesticide and to be safe you should eat non-gmo because you know that these pesticides can’t be used on non-gmo plants.

    • Posted by DeadFishFactory, at Reply

      Even if they were and uptook the roundup, it would be trace amounts and has no harmful effect. The lawsuit TYT is talking about are people who used it an applicator role. Even then, there’s no studies that show that it would cause cancer.

    • Posted by mr rojogo bin, at Reply

      & no long term studies to prove it would not cause cancer, so its safe because monsanto paid scientist said so ?
      back to the middle of the meadow w/the flock & eat your chemical sprayed gmo clovah & enjoy the theory tales

    In Europe, companies have to prove that whatever they produce is SAFE, not the other way around as in the US.

    • Posted by SupaDr00g, at Reply

      Not heard of the FDA then?
      It’s understandable i mean it’s a fairly new thing they only carried out their first chemical analysis of agricultural products in 1848.

    • Posted by Iron Bowtie, at Reply

      The FDA also approved fentanyl, oxycodone and hydrocodone. The FDA suspended testing for glyphosphates in foods last year. The FDA is now a puppet of big pharma and big ag.

    • Posted by SupaDr00g, at Reply

      I guess they figured 46 years of testing was enough, by the way it’s not used in food it’s a herbicide sprayed on crops.
      You would think you mongs would be able to prove your claim after nearly 5 decades but still all you have is accusation and allegation and zero proof and you can’t even spell it.

    • Posted by Harry Twinotter, at Reply

      “In Europe, companies have to prove that whatever they produce is SAFE”.

      Citation please.

      Ignoring the straw man for a moment, it’s problematic if you can ever “prove” anything is safe. More like all you can do is show, to the limits of the testing techniques available, that something is not harmful.

      I’m a huge fan of Myles and I take his assessment of these type of things for the most part as accurate because he cites his sources so I can check for myself and he is always spot on, but in light of this new info maybe he didn’t know about it. Has he addressed these issues yet? Generally curious cos I do have a lot of respect for him.

    TYT fail. There is literally no studies that show GMO is bad. And please do more research before the claims about GM and glyphosate. Bacon and alcohol are mor carcinogenic than glyphosate. Please look in to the dosage before jumping into claims. TYT is lacking its credibility. You guys need someone to do more proof reading and research before making crazy claims. Lastly have you heard of causation and correlation.

    The anti-GMO/pesticide folk have been losing this argument for the better side of more than a decade now, and they STILL have 0 science.
    Only fake science published by big-organic that fails flat on even the most basic of methodologies and scrutiny.

    • Posted by BillNepill, at Reply

      How are we to interpret your lumping together the possible critics to Monsanto in the “anti-GMO/pesticide folk”? Isn’t there a possibility for nuance here – i.e. GMO generally being safe but Roundup not?

    • Posted by MMArtist141, at Reply

      Nope. Roundup has been proven safe time and time again. Hell, even IARC fucked up on the science… and the rest of the Scientific community laughed and proved IARC wrong, it was such a massive clusterfuck that the WHO/FAO had to step in and clean it up:
      http://www.who.int/foodsafety/jmprsummary2016.pdf?ua=1

      Of course the German BfR destroyed IARC as well on the claims made, but still.

    Europe try to ban glyphosate but here is so much lobbying from Bayer and Monsanto that Europe will allow glyphosate for the next 10 years… WTF

      _”Europe try to ban glyphosate”_

      And they failed, because you can’t ban something just because you think it’s “icky.”

    If anyone has watched the movie, The Corporation *.2003*, you will know that Monsanto sprayed pesticides on fruits and vegetables and caused illness for people in foreign countries which also led to deformities in babies because of the chemicals they were using.

    Back then a court issued a class action lawsuit which Monsanto had to pay out billions due to the damages they caused, I guess 15+ years later this stupid corporation has not learned their lesson. You want to talk about an evil corporation, look no further than Monsanto, here is a company I hope files for bankruptcy and goes out of business.

    • Posted by J Bishop, at Reply

      If that court was in Missouri, it doesn’t mean anything. Missouri is home to all spurious lawsuits.

    If Roundup is so safe, let’s have the Monsanto upper brass expose all their own families to it. That should be no problem, right?

    • Posted by Stephen Gant, at Reply

      Last Guy Minn they are exposed to it. It’s in most of the food we eat.

    • Posted by ben richards, at Reply

      Last Guy Minn someone should do some background reasearch on their families. See where theyre getting their food from.

    You guys should just stick to social/economic issues. You guys are just not qualified to discuss scientific subjects. Please stay out of science until you can get someone qualified to talk about scientific topics.

    • Posted by Sumanadasa Wijayapala, at Reply

      What are your views of Monsanto and GMOs?

    • Posted by Woo Cheol Shin, at Reply

      GMO’s are intrinsically safe for consumption. Genetically modified organisms produce different or different levels of certain protein. And once in human stomach, all protein is dissolved into basic amino acids which are harmless. The only way GMO can be harmful is if such change in protein expression leads to how the organism processes other small molecules which may harm human health. But this is rare and routinely studied as part of GMO research.
      Monsanto’s track record is littered with questionable acts. However, based on studies, glyphosate is only mildly carcinogenic at worst. Having said that, the lawsuit may hold up considering Monsanto tried to completely suppress public disclosure of glyphosate’s minor carcinogenic characteristic.

    It may cause cancer, it may not. But Ana’s point about the use of herbicides demonstrates a lack of understanding of farming practices. Farmers don’t want anything but their crop growing in the field to take nutrients from the soil while the crop is growing. It is therefore beneficial to them to use a chemical that will kill all the vegetation in the field EXCEPT the crops. Farmers are always going to use pesticides and herbicides in order to get the highest yield possible form their fields. So Monsanto modified the crops so that farmers can use a Monsanto herbicide. Not a bad idea.

      You mean stating the facts as Monsanto paid you to state them.

    • Posted by hairy hall, at Reply

      There are intrinsic flaws to monocropping as a practice; the paramount issue is having to alter a single crop’s processes in order to withstand the herbicide to kill all else. There are better ways of going about it. Civilization depended on that evolution.

  17. Posted by Rsr Nospam, at Reply

    Glyphosate itself does not cause cancer. It disrupts the molecular processes that protect you from cancer. It binds minerals that are important to physiological processes like mineral dependent enzymes. The main function of glyphosate as an hericide is to disrupt the shikimate pathway that produces the aromatic amino acids (phenylalanine, histidine, and tryptophan). The reasoning behind it being “safe” for humans is that we do not have this pathway, this is why the aromatic aminos are considered essential aminos in the human diet. The problem arises when your gut microbiome gets damaged by the glyphosate because it does utilize this pathway and your gut microbiome happens to produce most of your dietary aromatic aminos like tryptophan which is the precursor to serotonin and phenylalanine which is the precursor to another amino acid (tyrosine) which is a precursor for dopamine among other things. It’s pretty easy to see, if you care to look, that disruption of the gut microbiome can lead to a variety of illnesses including cancer, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and more. There is a great deal of bogus information on both sides of the glyphosate debate, but even Monsanto does not deny the basic function of glyphosate is to disrupt the shikimate pathway, they simply deny that you will suffer any ill effect as a result. Do some microbiome research on your own. Many scientists are now saying that the human microbiome is a virtual vital organ.
