(NaturalNews) It has been in constant and increasing use for more than 50 years. But glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, isn't at all safe for humans. 

And a new film project known as A New Resistance seeks to make this fact known on a wide scale, warning the public that this deadly chemical is now present in water, soil, air and food, and is slowly killing us all.

Since 1974, conventional farmers have been dousing their crops with what they were told is a completely safe, broad-spectrum weedkiller. 

This weedkiller has since become the number one selling herbicide in the world, but a growing body of independent science now shows that it is destroying human health, promoting obesity, infertility, cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, autism and dementia.

While supposedly making farming "easier," Roundup has become ubiquitous throughout the environment and in the modern food supply. Homeowners and gardeners alone use over 100 million pounds of it every single year just to keep their lawns free of weeds and their golf courses perfectly manicured. But the result is that glyphosate is now present in nearly every person's body.

"Glyphosate is an antibiotic, a chelator, and an endocrine disruptor," 
explains an announcement about the film project.

"It is being found inside of our bodies, and is entering the bodies of our newborn children through breast milk. A host of recent studies have linked Roundup and glyphosate to an alarming number of diseases threatening animal and human health, including obesity, diabetes, depression, infertility, cancer, celiac disease, gluten intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome, autism, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease."

You can watch the trailer for A New Resistance here:

EPA has raised allowable glyphosate limits by 3,000 percent to accommodate chemical industrySince it was first introduced, Roundup use has increased dramatically all around the world, and so has the amount of Roundup pollution present in the environment. 

Consequently, in July 2013, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) decided to raise the maximum allowable residues of glyphosate in food to accommodate this increase in use.

The result? There can now be up to 3,000 percent more glyphosate in your food before a food manufacturer will be scrutinized by the nation's food safety agencies. This is despite numerous recent studies showing that glyphosate destroys gut microbiota and accumulates inside the body.

 Nearly every study not published by the chemical industry itself suggests that glyphosate is "Satan's molecule," as it literally destroys all life with which it comes into contact.

"It's time to stop raising the residue limits for a chemical that has potentially harmful effects on our health,"
insist the minds behind the A New Resistance project.

 "It's time to stop the use of glyphosate altogether, unless and until peer-reviewed independent studies of glyphosate prove its use to be unquestionably safe."

Watch A New Resistance trailer and support this important projectThose who understand how dangerous glyphosate and Roundup really are also recognize that it is absolutely vital to spread the word to others. 

This is especially critical as rates of infertility, autism, and many other conditions associated with glyphosate exposure continue to skyrocket with no end in sight.

** By 2034, claim some estimates, one in every two children will likely have autism!

This needs to stop, and A New Resistance can help make it happen by educating people through film. Once released, the final project will be free for everyone with no strings attached. But in order to get the film made, funds still need to be raised. 

As of this writing, the project has achieved $46,414 of its final goal of $50,000, so let's help it through the final stretch:

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

Alphonso (mango)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor. 

It has considerable shelf life of a week after it is ripe making it exportable. 

It is also one of the most expensive kinds of mango and is grown mainly in Kokan region of western India.

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST

Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.

However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.

Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
