(NaturalNews) As you all may know, we in Hawaii have been waging a war against Monsanto against its use of Roundup because of the debilitating health effects caused by its active ingredient, glyphosate. To date, no politician will help as most of the key players are themselves genetically modified, including our Governor, Neil Abercrombie, and his Head of the Department of Agriculture, Russell Kokobun.
As a last resort, before seeing if any environmental group or agency would entertain filing a lawsuit, I have sent a complete package to our Attorney General, indicating the scientific findings of glyphosate's adverse health ramifications and safe glyphostae alternatives.
The following is my follow-up letter to our Attorney General. As such, I beg your help. The phone numbers at the Attorney General's office as follows: Main number: (808) 586-1500; Administrative Dep't: (808) 586-0618; Investigative Dep't: (808) 586-1240. And I mean this from the bottom of my heart with all sincerity, bury them with phone calls calling for a thorough investigation on Roundup's glyphosate, which is in clear violation of Hawaii's Pesticide Law.

Mr. David M. Louie, Attorney General Office of the Attorney General 425 Queen Street Honolulu, Hi 96813
Dear Mr. Louie:
Last week I dropped off a package to your office indicating the corruption of various State employees and their overt violation of the Hawaii Pesticide Law, due to their being on Monsanto's "payroll". In the package, information was revealed that Monsanto, since the 80s and the Government regulators, since the 90s, hid the fact that the glyphosate used in Monsanto's Roundup created debilitating health ramifications at any level of exposure.
This means that the children and teachers in the schools, people in general at the beaches, parks, government buildings, and government workers that administer Roundup are at risk of serious illnesses.
Our Pesticide Law says that if a pesticide has been shown to create adverse health effects, a moratorium on its use can be implemented until thorough, independent testing can be done to determine that assertion. To date, other than what I sent to you, which Monsanto has suppressed for years, the only "independent" testing done on glyphosate has been done by Monsanto's scientists.
Glyphosate is as bad, if not worse than DDT.
Recently, representing one of the most agriculturally bio-diverse nations in the world, India has become a primary target for biotechnology companies like Monsanto and Cargill to spread their genetically modified (GM) crops into new markets. However, a recent France 24 report explains that the Indian government has decided to take an offensive approach against this attempted agricultural takeover by suing Monsanto for "biopiracy", accusing the company of stealing India's indigenous plants in order to re-engineer them into patented varieties.
Brinjal, also known in Western nations as eggplant, is a native Indian crop for which there are roughly 2,500 varieties. Millions of Indian farmers grow brinjal and the country grows more than a quarter of the world's overall supply of the vegetable.
In an attempt to capitalize on this popular crop, Monsanto has repeatedly tried to commercially market its own GM variety of brinjal called Bt brinjal. But massive public outcry against the planned commercial approval of Monsanto's "frankencrop" variety in 2010 led to the government banning it for an indefinite period of time.
Despite this, Monsanto is still stealing native crops, including brinjal, and quietly working on GM varieties of them in test fields, which is a clear violation of India's Biological Diversity Act (BDA). So, at the prompting of various farmers and activists in India, the Indian government, representing the first time in history a nation has taken such action, has decided to sue Monsanto.
You can watch the full France 24 video of India's lawsuit at: http://www.france 24.com/en/20110921
Bear in mind that ALL Monsanto's GM crops are heavily sprayed with Roundup, containing glyphosate, putting the entire world at risk.
Please Mr. Louie, initiate a through examination of glyphosate so we can get it out of Hawaii once and for all.

About the author: I have been doing a weekly radio show in Honolulu since 1981 called "Health Talk". In 2007 I was "forced" to get a Masters degree in Nutrition because of all the doctors that would call in asking for my credentials. They do not call in anymore. Going to www.healthtalkhawaii.com enables you, among other things, to listen to the shows. I am an activist. In addition to espousing an organic vegan diet for optimum health, I am strongly opposed to GMOs, vaccines, processed foods, MSG, aspartame, fluoridation and everything else that the pimps (Big Pharma, Monsanto and the large food companies) and the hookers (the doctors, the government agencies, the public health officials, and the mainstream media) thrust upon us, the tricks. After being vaccinated with the DTP vaccine as a child I developed asthma. After taking the organic sulfur crystals (they are harvested from the pine trees in Louisiana) in November of 2008 for 10 days my asthma reversed and has not come back over 4 years later, 18 cases, so far, of autism have been reversed, as has cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, osteoarthritis, joint pain, astigmatism, gum disease, increased sexual activity, heavy metal and radiation elimination, parasite elimination, free radicals elimination, faster athletic recovery time, increased blood circulation, reduced inflammation, resistance to getting the flu, reduction of wrinkles, allergy reduction, reduced PMS and monthly period pain, nausea, migraines and so much more. And it's only possible because of the oxygen it releases that floods the cells of the body. The sulfur, as proven by the University of Southampton in England, enables the body to produce vitamin B12 and the essential amino acids. You can find out more about this incredible nutrient also on my website - www.healthtalkhawaii.com -. My book, "a Sane Diet For An Insane World", has been published.
