From the past two articles written about Monsanto, its Roundup and the corruption by Hawaii’s Genetically Modified Politicians (those that became “hookers” for Monsanto by accepting campaign contributions from them), which included our Governor and other aspiring politicians, it has become apparent that the politicians will do nothing.
When we approached the Hawaii Department of Agriculture and told them they were in violation of the Hawaii Pesticide Law, they hung up on us. That’s not surprising because Russell Kokobun, the Head of the Hawaii Ag Department, accepted $20,000 from Monsanto to remain a good little “lap dog”.
What we next are in the process of doing is putting together a package that includes the actual scientific report that proves disastrous health effects to humans and animals when coming into any contact whatsoever with Monsanto’s Roundup and the fact that it has been covered up by Monsanto for 30 years and by the government agencies for 20 years. In addition we are including the everyday language report of the original report by a noted Professor at the University of Hawaii and his list of safe alternatives to Agent Orange, aka Roundup.
Also to be included is a very recent and disturbing report that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, has a detrimental effect on bananas. This is extremely relevant to Hawaii as bananas are one of our most prolific crops.
When all this is put together it will be delivered to the Attorney General’s office in the hopes that a moratorium on the use of Roundup will take place and an investigation will ensue. The report will also be delivered to the State offices of the Parent, Teachers Association, the Hawaii Government Worker’s Union, and the Hawaii Teacher’s Union.
How can a company knowingly and willingly jeopardize the health and lives of children and adults by exposing them to disastrous ramifications after exposure to their main product simply because they do not want to lose money?
In addition, to solidify their profits, they “buy off” politicians in the guise of campaign contributions to solidify their allegiance. In the case of Russell Kokobun, he was blatantly paid off to insure that under all circumstances Roundup would never cease to be used.
Imagine selling your soul to the devil for a measly $20,000!
In my last update I listed our Governor’s telephone number and he was inundated with calls. Unfortunately, it had no effect. Hopefully, our Attorney General, the PTA, and the unions will change that.
Anyway, here goes:
As you all may know, we in Hawaii have been waging a war against Monsanto against it’s use of Roundup because of the debilitating health effects caused by it’s active ingredient, glyphosate. To date, no politician will help as most of the key players are themselves genetically modified as revealed in previous articles.
As a last resort, before seeing if any environmental group or agency would entertain filing a lawsuit, I have sent a complete package to our Attorney General, indicating the scientific findings of glyphosate’s adverse health ramifications and safe glyphosate alternatives.
The following is my follow-up letter to our Attorney General. As such, I beg your help. The phone numbers at the Attorney General’s office as follows: Main number: (808) 586-1500; Administrative Dep’t: (808) 586-0618; Investigative Dep’t: (808) 586-1240. And I mean this from the bottom of my heart with all sincerity, bury them with phone calls calling for a thorough investigation on Roundup’s glyphosate, which is in clear violation of Hawaii’s Pesticide Law.

Dear Mr. Louie:
Last week I dropped off a package to your office indicating the corruption of various State employees and their overt violation of the Hawaii Pesticide Law, due to their being on Monsanto’s “payroll”. In the package, information was revealed that Monsanto, since the 80s and the Government regulators, since the 90s, hid the fact that the glyphosate used in Monsanto’s Roundup created debilitating health ramifications at any level of exposure.
This means that the children and teachers in the schools, people in general at the beaches, parks, government buildings, and government workers that administer Roundup are at risk of serious illnesses.
Our Pesticide Law says that if a pesticide has been shown to create adverse health effects, a moratorium on its use can be implemented until thorough, independent testing can be done to determine that assertion. To date, other than what I sent to you, which Monsanto has suppressed for years, the only “independent” testing done on glyphosate has been done by Monsanto’s scientists.
Glyphosate is as bad, if not worse than DDT.
Recently, representing one of the most agriculturally bio-diverse nations in the world, India has become a primary target for biotechnology companies like Monsanto and Cargill to spread their genetically modified (GM) crops into new markets. However, a recent France 24 report explains that the Indian government has decided to take an offensive approach against this attempted agricultural takeover by suing Monsanto for “biopiracy”, accusing the company of stealing India’s indigenous plants in order to re-engineer them into patented varieties.
Brinjal, also known in Western nations as eggplant, is a native Indian crop for which there are roughly 2,500 varieties. Millions of Indian farmers grow brinjal and the country grows more than a quarter of the world’s overall supply of the vegetable.
In an attempt to capitalize on this popular crop, Monsanto has repeatedly tried to commercially market its own GM variety of brinjal called Bt brinjal. But massive public outcry against the planned commercial approval of Monsanto’s “frankencrop” variety in 2010 led to the government banning it for an indefinite period of time.
Despite this, Monsanto is still stealing native crops, including brinjal, and quietly working on GM varieties of them in test fields, which is a clear violation of India’s Biological Diversity Act (BDA). So, at the prompting of various farmers and activists in India, the Indian government, representing the first time in history a nation has taken such action, has decided to sue Monsanto.
You can watch the full France 24 video of India’s lawsuit at:
Bear in mind that ALL Monsanto’s GM crops are heavily sprayed with Roundup, containing glyphosate, putting the entire world at risk.
Please Mr. Louie, initiate a through examination of glyphosate so we can get it out of Hawaii once and for all.

I have been doing a radio show in Honolulu since 1981 called “Health Talk”. To listen to the show please tune into 1080 or 108 am or go to www.kwai1080am.com on your computer at 8am Hawaii time. FYI, 8 am Hawaii time is 10 am on the West coast and 2 pm on the East coast. To call in, the number is (808) 524-1080.
Now, American Voice Radio will be picking up my streamed show and playing it all week until the next one takes place. To listen, go to americanvoiceradio.com and click on my link at AVR 2. Starting in December I will be doing another radio show on AVR at 9:00 am Hawaii time on Thursday mornings. Just go to the website, click on AVR 1, and listen live or tune in later and listen via the archive to Health Talk with Hesh.
See you on the radio!
In 2007, I was “forced” to get a masters degree in Nutrition to stop all the doctors from calling in asking what my credentials were. Besides that, they never liked it when I asked them what their credentials were that would enable them to treat an illness without drugs or surgery.
If you go to www.healthtalkhawaii.com and click on Podcasts and Articles, there are years of shows there as well as hundreds of health related articles that are completely free to listen to and read.
I am an activist. I am vehemently opposed to GMOs, vaccines, processed foods, MSG, aspartame, fluoridation, and everything else that the “pimps” (big pHarma, Monsanto, and the large food companies), and the “hookers” (the doctors, the government agencies, the Public Health officials, and the mainstream media) thrust upon us, the “tricks”.
At 76, I am in 3 softball leagues, racewalk, do stand-up paddling, hike, swim, do weights and cardio, and teach women’s self-defense classes based upon 20 years of Wing Chun training. I have been a vegetarian since 1975 and a vegan since 1990, have no illnesses and take no meds.
After being vaccinated with the DTP vaccine as a child, I developed asthma, which plagued me until 2008 when I learned about and started taking the organic sulfur crystals. My asthma was reversed in 3 days and has not come back.
So far, 26 cases of autism that we know about have been reversed, as has cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, asthma, osteoarthritis, joint pain, gingivitis, and erectile dysfunction. The sulfur has increased sexual activity, eliminated toxins, heavy metals, radiation, and parasites. It speeds up athletic recovery time, increases blood circulation, reduces inflammation, increases resistance to the “flu”, reduces wrinkles, allergies, PMS, monthly period pain, migraines, nausea, lowering high blood pressure, raising low blood pressure and way more, because the oxygen that the sulfur releases floods and heals the cells in the body.
The sulfur, as proven by the University of Southampton in England, enables the body to produce vitamin B12 and the essential amino acids.
You can find out more about this on my website under Products.
My book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”, which has been published, can be viewed and purchased at www.asanediet.com. The book clearly explains why what you eat, for the most part, is designed to keep you in a state of declining health.
I have recently discovered two amazing super foods – Zeal and Shakeology – Zeal contains 30 amazing probiotics, anti-oxidents and more, all designed to build and strengthen the immune system and Shakeology contains 42. What’s great about Shakeology is that it is filling, replaces one meal and keeps you full for hours and helps with weight control and loss. For more info about Shakeology please email me or go to www.beachbodycoach.com/heshgoldstein. The good news about Shakeology is if you are not satisfied after 30 days the company will refund you.
And now I have come across an amazing bee pollen that is so soft it melts in your mouth and has so many benefits. It is rich in vitamin B12 and all B vitamins, proteins, minerals, beneficial fatty acids, carotenoids, bioflavenoids, antioxidants, antihistamines, enzymes, antibiotics, and natural phenylalanine, which acts as an appetite suppressant, and more.
My daily regimen consists of one teaspoon of the crystals twice a day, one scoop of the Zeal in cold water, one packet of Shakeology either in 8 to 12 ounces of water or added to my smoothie and a heaping tablespoon of bee pollen. For more about Shakeology please go to www.beachbodycoach.com/heshgoldstein.
