As some of you may be aware, I write a monthly nutrition article in our local paper, the Ozaukee News Graphic. Several weeks ago I experienced a first. My article about the dangers of pesticides, particularly glyphosate as found in RoundUp was attacked in a letter to the editor. The headline read, “Rosen column based on faulty science.” Once I read the letter I of course had to see who this guy was, and sure enough he was a local seed distributor of Monsanto products! Of course he failed to mention that little point in his attack on me and the scientist whose work I shared.
As I wrote in my original article, now several months ago, the more I read about it, the more I am convinced that it is the pesticides, perhaps even more so than gluten, is behind so much of the increase in chronic health problems we see today. This issue of the newsletter contains my original article, Mr. Monsanto’s letter to the editor, my reply to him, and some additional reference articles on the dangers of pesticides.
On another note, it’s almost been one year since the most impactful training of my nutrition career – studying advanced muscle testing with Dr. Joe Teff. What I learned from him has not only transformed my practice but has helped an ever growing client population achieve greater health. Thanks again to Dr. Teff. Muscle testing has helped many people and below is the story of the recent Men’s Wimbledon Champion and his personal experience!
Enjoy the rest of the summer!

More Scary Stuff About Pesticides and Glyphosate
Here’s two additional solid articles about the dangers of pesticides and glyphosate.
The first one is from GreenMedInfo.com. This is a great website. Did you know that there are bacteria in the sky? This article explores the possibilities that the same bacteria killing properties of the pesticides on earth (remember glyphosate is also an antibiotic) are impacting the bacteria in the clouds and possibly contributing to the draught conditions being experienced in California.

The second article is from Natural News. This article explains how glyphosate is used as a wheat crop drying chemical to speed up harvesting. So, in addition to being soaked up by the plant in the ground, there is extra being applied directly to the wheat prior to harvest. I guess that’s our bonus dose!

The Power of Muscle Testing
Novak Djokovic is one of the biggest stars in Men’s tennis. After recently winning Wimbledon he is ranked number one. How did he go from good to great? In a recent book he explains it was a result of a dietary change discovered through muscle testing!
