Another Atrazine Moment Brought to You by the IFC

The industrial food complex (IFC) is faced with another study showing the ills of atrazine on the human body, specifically the female anatomy.  There seems to be more evidence showing reduced levels of estrogen and other abnormalities. 

I read this in the Environmental Health News article. It started with this paragraph: 

Women who drink water contaminated with low levels of the weed-killer atrazine may be more likely to have irregular menstrual cycles and low estrogen levels, scientists concluded in a new study. The most widely used herbicide in the United States, atrazine is frequently detected in surface and ground water, particularly in agricultural areas of the Midwest. The newest research, which compared women in Illinois farm towns to women in Vermont, adds to the growing scientific evidence linking atrazine to altered hormones.

In early 2010, another published study revealed atrazine was castrating and feminizing bullfrogs.  Before that, it was the feminization of bass.  Both the bullfrogs and the bass are known as predictor species.  That means their organs and other internal workings are much like that of humans.  What happens to them is an indication that it can happen to humans.

Ask yourself, how long and how many of us will have to suffer because the IFC continues to make profits off the demise of our environment and to the detriment of our bodies?  Do not forget we have still yet to hear anything about Nano-Titanium-Dioxide.  I cannot help but think it is here and in our food supply.  Just as we found out about GMO corn, my bet is we will find out about NTD the same way.
