A New Resistance film to expose dangers of Roundup in food, water and all around us

(NaturalNews) It has been in constant and increasing use for more than 50 years. But glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, isn’t at all safe for humans. And a new film project known as A New Resistance seeks to make this fact known on a wide scale, warning the public that this deadly chemical is now present in water, soil, air and food, and is slowly killing us all.
Since 1974, conventional farmers have been dousing their crops with what they were told is a completely safe, broad-spectrum weedkiller. This weedkiller has since become the number one selling herbicide in the world, but a growing body of independent science now shows that it is destroying human health, promoting obesity, infertility, cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, autism and dementia.
While supposedly making farming “easier,” Roundup has become ubiquitous throughout the environment and in the modern food supply. Homeowners and gardeners alone use over 100 million pounds of it every single year just to keep their lawns free of weeds and their golf courses perfectly manicured. But the result is that glyphosate is now present in nearly every person’s body.
“Glyphosate is an antibiotic, a chelator, and an endocrine disruptor,” explains an announcement about the film project.
