I’ve often questioned, is the cotton we are wearing good for us? Are the sheets and mattresses we lie on healthy?
I’ve been blessed to have been invited into an amazing group of researchers including Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Dr. Anthony Samsel and Dr. Stephen Frantz who have shared a large amount of information with me.
This is some of what Stephan Frantz has shared with me when I asked if the cotton is safe:
According to a 2013 ISAA (International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-Biotech Applications) report, 70% of the world’s cotton production is biotech. For U.S. farmers, Monsanto has three varieties of GE cotton (there may be others outside the U.S.?):
- Bollgard II® (insect protection): Bt toxin, expressed by the transgene inserted into the plant’s genome, targets many insect larvae, including the bollworm.
- Roundup Ready® Flex (herbicide tolerance): GE transgene extends the application period for Roundup® herbicides up to seven days before harvest and helps target more grass and broadleaf weeds to reduce pressure on yield. Yea, more glyphosate gets sprayed!
- Bollgard II® with Roundup Ready® Flex (both): Combines (stacks?) the insect control with the herbicide-tolerant traits all in one seed. I think this is the variety that’s used most these days. For example, in 2012, over 6 million acres of this variety were planted in the U.S. Cotton Belt (USDA. 2012 Varieties Planted report).
Do you see number 3? “I think this is the variety that’s used most these days.” I’m still trying to wrap my head around BT, but as for glyphosate, I’ve known for a while how Roundup Ready seeds impact the human genome.
Roundup Ready seeds when ingested, destroy our gut microbiome as they attack the shikamate pathway of our “gut bugs” we need to have a functioning ecosystem in our body. Glyphosate mammalian metabolism yields two products: Aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) and glyoxylate in research that research scientists Stephanie Seneff and Anthony Samsel have done.
Again according to Stephen Frantz,
Glyphosate concerns: With Bt cotton varieties 2 & 3 (above), there will be plenty of glyphosate throughout the cotton plant and in contamination of the final cotton products. A 2015 study in Argentina found 85% of all cotton products sampled (sterile gauze, swabs, wipes, tampons & sanitary pads) tested to be positive for glyphosate (62% were positive for AMPA). Concentrations in raw cotton were 13 PPB for glyphosate (39 PPB for AMPA). Sterile gauze contained glyphosate at 17 PPB (nothing for AMPA).
Understandably, much more study of glyphosate contamination of commonly used cotton products is needed; however:
- Has anyone investigated glyphosate contamination of cotton cloth and clothing?
- What would be the health impact of the glyphosate contamination concentrations such as that found in sterile gauze (above)?
BT endotoxin & glyphosate concerns (combined): Many tons of cotton are produced every year (in 2015/2016 = 100.2 million 480 lb bales worldwide), and at least 70% of that is GEcotton. Since much GE cotton is thrown “away” every year.
- What is the ultimate environmental impact of the massive amounts of discarded GE cotton products (e.g., effect on the soil microbiome, as in a refuse dump)?
As you all know, my studies are about diet and environmental toxins impacting our DNA.
So far we know that when consuming glyphosate it does indeed disrupt sulfation. We now see that nine out of ten people have sulfation issues. Here are some of my articles that I have written so far on timelining what is going on with the human genome and what DNA is being compromised because of glyphosate found in Roundup Ready seeds.

I’m asking all practitioners in Europe where glyphosate is restricted to have an open mind here. We know that Europeans are most likely getting glyphosate in their prescription drugs and vaccines. Now the big question is are they getting glyphosate toxicity from the clothes that they are wearing? Are they getting these toxins in their bloodstream by laying on mattresses and sheets at night?
This is concerning because many of the European practitioners that follow my research are finding that most of their chronically ill patients have hyperoxaluria and poor sulfation which can be directly linked to glyphosate.
The same with Australia. Even though Australia does allow GMOs, they do have strict labeling laws. Many of the chronically ill in Australia who avoid GMOs are being diagnosed with pyroluria that can now be linked backed to hyperoxaluria and poor sulfation in which glyphosate can be the culprit in many cases.
What everyone should know.
- Roundup Ready cotton once made into clothing, linens, diapers, tampons, mattresses and used in other furnishings that the pesticide cannot be heated or washed out. The seed itself contains glyphosate.
- Our skin is the largest organ in our body. Our skin is porous and fed with capillaries. Are we soaking up glyphosate through our skin?
- The world should be very concerned about our cotton. Knowing that poor sulfation of D3 can be linked back to glyphosate (Roundup Ready seeds) and these are the children being vaccine injured, we need more research on genetically engineered cotton.
- Europeans and Australians who have strict guidelines on GMOs in their countries should find this alarming and I would suggest that practitioners in these regions – who have patients with pyroluria, hyperoxaluria and poor sulfation – find a reputable resource and start testing for glyphosate toxicity in their patients.
- Know that MTHFR is a part of methionine synthase and poor sulfation impacts methionine synthase in a negative way.
- Monsanto found that most of the glyphosate is absorbed by the bone and bone marrow.
