Glyphosate Causes Cancer: EPA “Trade Secret” Sealed Files Reveal Cancer Link Known Back in the 1970s
"Dr. Anthony Samsel was recently interviewed by Tony Mitra, where he discussed certain documents he has in his possession from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that allegedly show Monsanto knew about research connecting glyphosate to cancer since the 1970s."
Glyphosate Rising – Cancer Projected to Increase
"The EPA is set to raise “safe” glyphosate contamination levels. Notwithstanding several documented reports of the current dangers of glyphosate exposure, including one from international plant pathologist, Dr. Don Huber, the EPA sets out to dupe the public once again and declare that the current set levels for “safe” consumption of glyphosate should be raised. Expect this figure to rise periodically as levels of glyphosate contamination rise in proportion to the expansion of genetically engineered crops and their herbicide-resistant counterparts around the world."

German Beer Primer for Beginners, Why German Beer is Special
Beer Purity Law
"German beer labels always carry the inscription "Gebraut nach dem deutschen Reinheitsgebot" or "Gebraut nach dem Bayerischen Reinheitsgebot von 1516" (brewed according to the German Purity Law or the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516). This "beer purity" law is one of the most remarkable and perhaps most misunderstood pieces of legislation. The original law was a ducal decree issued on April 23, 1516, by the Bavarian co-rulers Duke Wilhelm IV and Duke Ludwig X (below). It was introduced at a meeting of an assembly of the Estates of Bavaria, at Ingolstadt, some 60 miles north of Munich. Initially only in feudal Bavaria, but later in all of Germany, the Reinheitsgebot gave government the tools to regulate the ingredients, processes and quality of beer sold to the public (and to levy taxes on beer!). The Reinheitsgebot is the oldest, still valid food safety law in the world."
