Omega-6 Apocalypse: From Heart Disease to Cancer and Macular Degeneration, Are Seed Oil Excesses the Unifying Mechanism? Over the past two hundred years, we’ve witnessed the evolution of pandemics of chronic degenerative, metabolic, and noncommunicable disease (NCD). Ample evidence supports the conclusion that coronary heart disease, cancers, type 2 diabetes, obesity, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and metabolic syndrome, among other chronic diseases, have risen from medical rarities to the most common causes of chronic disease and causes of death. Whereas the top three causes of death in the year 1900 were all infectious, by year 2000, seven of the top ten causes of death were secondary to chronic NCD. During the same time frame, we’ve witnessed industrially produced seed oils, rich in omega-6 fatty acids, elevate to occupy up to a third of human consumption, or more. Such oils rarely existed anywhere prior to the American Civil War, globally. Virtually all chronic degenerative diseases of civilization have in common one primary metabolic defect, namely, mitochondrial dysfunction. Could omega-6 rich seed oils, consumed to excess, be the common precipitating factor through multiple mechanisms, including prooxidative and proinflammatory pathways, cytotoxicity, mutagenicity, and genotoxicity? The evidence is compelling.

Will Monsanto’s Roundup Herbicide Soon Be Banned?

From Natural Society … this article recapitulates the progress so far in terms of recent mounting evidence:

“It’s not just the WHO that has raised the alarm over Monsanto’s Roundup and its devastating effects on human and environmental health. Instead, the WHO announcement was simply the most widely reported on Roundup study that we have seen. Sadly, it’s not even the most concerning.

It was back in September of 2014 that the  International Journal of Toxicology published a much more alarming piece on the dangers of Roundup entitled “Glyphosate Commercial Formulation Causes Cytotoxicity, Oxidative Effects, and Apoptosis on Human Cells: Differences With its Active Ingredient.” As you can gather from its name, the study highlighted the multitude of ways in which glyphosate is wreaking havoc on human cells…”

For Kiwis, remember, New Zealand is an avid user of Roundup and glyphosate. It is recommended in our Tertiary Agricultural textbooks, and touted as being completely harmless. Therefore it is sprayed liberally onto pastures and eaten by the stock headed for the market and our consumption. Hence it is found now in human urine, blood and breast milk. It is used by the keepers of our roads and public spaces in towns, by large contractors as well as small.

Educate yourself, read the data and spread the word. There are currently two petitions circulating in NZ, one for Auckland and one for the Rangitikei. I note that one may be coming for all of NZ, the better option really as it is at government level it needs addressing. Councils continue to repeat that glyphosate is government approved. In the meantime however, please consider signing the petitions and stop the ongoing poisoning of our future.
