Why the FDA's announcement of glyphosate testing is a total science SHAM

Glyphosate testing

(NaturalNews) As I explain in my latest podcast (below), the FDA's announcement that it will test foods for glyphosate is more of a SHAM than SCIENCE. In my view, the agency's announcement is nothing more than "scientific theater" to pretend to test foods for glyphosate, all while claiming glyphosate is completely safe no matter what levels are found.

This is why it's so important that other, non-governmental labs take up the testing of glyphosate at the same time. It's obvious to nearly everyone that we can't trust the FDA's glyphosate tests any more than we can trust the EPA's tests on lead in municipal water supplies. In every case -- FDA, EPA, USDA -- these government agencies have systematically used science to deceive the public, not inform us.

Given that the FDA is pro-GMO and pro-glyphosate, it is irrational to think that they would approach glyphosate testing without a pro-glyphosate bias (and all the accompanying political maneuvers that go with it). In precisely the same way the CDC altered vaccine trial data to hide the truth about autism risks in African-American boys, the FDA is very likely to alter its glyphosate testing data to hide the truth about glyphosate in the food supply. (I've already warned Natural News readers about glyphosate being sprayed on wheat crops and ending up in breads, cakes, muffins, donuts, breakfast cereals and other wheat-derived foods.)

How the FDA will fake its glyphosate testing

As the director of an analytical food science lab, I am intimately familiar with food contamination testing methods and state-of-the-art scientific protocols. I can tell you how the FDA will likely fake their tests to produce artificially low results: They will use an inappropriate glyphosate method with low "recoverability" in order to produce artificially low findings.

There are at least three ways they can pull this off in the lab:

1) They can deliberately use a bad extraction technique that fails to extract glyphosate from foods. (Most pesticides are easily extracted from foods, but glyphosate is particularly difficult. If you use the same methods that might be used for something like atrazine, you'll get artificially low results or no results at all.)

2) They can deliberately use an analytical method that demonstrates very poor recoverability. In particular, they can choose LC mobile phase solutions that demonstrate poor chemistry in LC columns, and they can also choose methods that fail to ionize the glyphosate molecule, resulting in no measurable signals on LC/MS systems. (The glyphosate molecule is highly polar, meaning chemists must use appropriate analytical techniques and equipment to isolate it from other molecules.)

3) They can commit straight up scientific fraud by diluting samples after extraction, for example, or by entering the wrong sample mass into the software that calculates the quantitative results. This is precisely what the CDC and EPA routinely do when it suits their political interests, and we know the FDA has a long history of engaging in scientific fraud to cover up the deadly side effects of drugs like Vioxx and Rezulin.

For all these reasons, you should fully expect to see private labs producing far higher glyphosate numbers than the FDA, even for the same foods tested.

Even if the FDA does manage to report some glyphosate findings in foods, it will almost certainly declare any concentration it finds to be "safe." If the agency keeps finding higher and higher levels in foods that it tests, it will simply raise the "allowable" level of exposure to match that concentration, once again proclaiming that glyphosate is safe in essentially unlimited amounts. (In truth, glyphosate can cause cancer at part per trillion concentrations.)

Scientific theater at the FDA, EPA, USDA, CDC and other federal agencies

Make no mistake: When it comes to glyphosate, the FDA, EPA and USDA are all engaged in "scientific theater" designed to deceive the public and protect the profit interests of Monsanto, Syngenta, DOW Chemical and other poison pushing corporate giants. This is the role of modern-day corrupt government: to deceive the public at every opportunity while pretending to be doing something important. In the same way the TSA engages in totally useless "security theater" at the airports, the FDA pretends to be interested in protecting the public from toxins in the food supply.

But if that were true, the agency would have banned sodium nitrite in the 1980s and trans fats in the 1990s. Yet sodium nitrite -- a potent, cancer-causing chemical used in processed meat -- is still ridiculously deemed "safe" by the FDA, even as countless millions of people have likely been stricken with cancer over the past three decades from eating sodium nitrite. (For the record, it's a simple chemistry equation that sodium nitrite + meat proteins + HCl in stomach acid produces nitrosamines which cause colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, brain tumors and other forms of cancer. This is irrefutable and not disputed by anyone other than corrupt bureaucrats who are totally illiterate in chemistry.)

Like every other federal agency in existence, the FDA makes a mockery of its stated public mission, and it systematically uses science to deceive the public rather than protect it. If you think the FDA protects the food supply, you must also believe the Federal Reserve protects the money supply... (hilarious!)

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
