Read this: The tragic magnitude of the chronic kidney failure epidemic afflicting Chichigalpa, Nicaragua, is nearly impossible to overstate - in the last 10 years, roughly half of all male deaths there were caused by the mysterious illness.
It's so bad that the tiny village of La Isla, a community of Chichigalpa sugar cane field workers, is now more commonly called La Isla de Viudas - The Island of Widows..

And the epidemic isn't limited to Nicaragua, or even Central America. It's been afflicting agricultural workers in rural pockets of El Salvador, Costa Rica, India and Sri Lanka for roughly 20 years.

Now, a World Health Organization study has discovered a culprit - glyphosate, an herbicide sold by Monsanto under the trade name "Roundup."

The point: Meanwhile in the US, the EPA recently amended their standards to allow much higher trace levels of glyphosate in food crops - from 200 parts per million to 6,000 ppm.

What is EPA doing??? It appears they are so lowly educated with primary focus in Race + Equality behaving like all minimum wage incomers!!! It makes me wonder? Before long, who cares about Kidney Failures - Starvation is the only concern! We need technically able and scientifically sound minds in Fed!!!

Don't sue Monsanto in Supreme Court...The focus in Race and Equality in the society is a well established and time honored
idiom in US! Despite the fact, I am among the class of minority with the fewest numbers in America (<1-2%), I don't feel it is the way to go forward!!!

It is a waste of time and money to challenge EPA or Monsanto now... Besides, how many people in US understand the chemical named Glyphosate and show concern???

Let us hope things will get better in years to come!!!
