Comments Off on Monsanto’s Toxic Herbicide Roundup Found in 75 Percent of Rain and Air Samples

Roundup herbicide is toxic, causes insect and weed immunity , and in at least one part of the United States, was found in 75 percent of air and rain test samples. The US Geological Survey recently concluded a study in which samples of a variety of chemicals were traced in the air and rain around Mississippi’s Delta agricultural region. Roundup was the most commonly found toxin in the study during 2007, which means that the potentially carcinogenic compound is in a vast majority of the air and rain surrounding the area.

Comments Off on Remarkable 3D Maps Show Huge Blotches of Toxic Lead in the Atlantic

New 3D maps released at the 2014 Ocean Sciences Meeting in Honolulu show a huge mass of Atlantic seawater infused with traces of lead, a pollutant that was widely used in the automobile industry until a few decades ago. Although using this hazardous substance has been banned in the United States and Europe, maps show that there are places where lead contamination is a continuing problem – especially near southern Africa and Gibraltar.
