I’M CURRENTLY TEACHING A COURSE entitled: “Environmental Toxicology: Ecosystem and Human Health” at IPAK-EDU and today I completed my lecture on Food Pollution. Air pollution and water pollution are serious threats to human and ecosystem health for sure; an unacceptable number of people in the poorest countries - and in so-called “developed” countries - do not have access to potable water. The fact that’s it’s actually raining glyphosate - and many other pesticides - is enough to take one’s breath away. My immediate concern over the fact that it’s raining pesticides is the soil ecosystem - the soil microbes, fungi & creates that together exist as a complex and dynamic soil factory - which we are quite literally pissing on with pesticides from Big Agriculture. Many of the pesticides break down in metabolic product that are toxic, and long-lasting, that threaten, well, everything. The mycorrhizae must be kept healthy not only for crops - but for forests and grasslands and prairie and every other place where plants grow in soil. With so many environmental toxins that are found in rainfall itself, each raindrop is a laboratory for chemical interactions and reactions creating new chemicals that no human laboratory experiment has created - and that we have never faced before in our evolutionary past.
