Common crop pesticide is a public health threat causing diabetes
(NaturalNews) Diabetes is brought to you in part by Bayer AG - Germany. You know, the most powerful German corporate cartel in the first half of the 20th century - IG Farben (AKA Bayer) - and the single largest profiteer from World War II. This is the same IG Farben that was intimately involved with the human experimental atrocities committed by Mengele at Auschwitz. This company is in business today because we continue to buy their products.
IG Farben was the only German company to run its own concentration camp. At least 30,000 slave workers died in this camp and a lot more were deported to gas chambers. It was no coincidence that IG Farben built their giant plant in Auschwitz, since the 300,000 people they used there were free. The Zyklon B gas, which killed millions of Jews, Gypsies and other people was produced by IG Farben’s subsidiary company Degesch.
New news is bad news
ScienceDaily (June 25, 2012) - A new study finds that the fungicide tolylfluanid, manufactured by Bayer AG and used on farm crops can induce insulin resistance and provides yet another piece of evidence linking environmental pollutants to diabetes. The results were presented June 23 at The Endocrine Society’s 94th Annual Meeting in Houston. “For the first time, we’ve ascribed a molecular mechanism by which an environmental pollutant can induce insulin resistance, lending credence to the hypothesis that some synthetic chemicals might be contributors to the diabetes epidemic,” said investigator Robert Sargis, M.D., Ph.D., instructor in the endocrinology division at the University of Chicago.
Sargis and co-investigators examined the effects of tolylfluanid on insulin resistance at the cellular level and found that exposure to tolylfluanid induced insulin resistance in fat cells. Sargis says “The fungicide and antifouling agent tolylfluanid may pose a threat to public health through the induction of adipocytic-insulin resistance, an early step in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes… Based on these studies, further efforts should be undertaken to clarify human exposure to tolylfluanid and the possible metabolic consequences of that exposure.”
