And you need to protect yourself…
Glyphosate is the most common weed killer in the world, the active ingredient in Roundup. The glyphosate problem is so huge, it is hard to know where to begin to describe it. Here is the problem: Glyphosate wreaks havoc with the body’s fundamental control systems that regulate every aspect of your health. The research to date is truly alarming, your body goes out of control, and glyphosate has become one of the major drivers of our epidemic of chronic disease. Among other things, it is an endocrine disrupter and has been shown to drive breast cancer proliferation in the parts-per-trillion range. Every year, U.S. farmers spray more than 400,000 tons of this dangerous toxin into our environment, mostly to grow GMO food crops. Adding to the problem, homeowners use it on their lawns and gardens.
Glyphosate has been associated with ADHD, autism, diabetes, obesity, fatigue, immune system problems, mental disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, and every type of cancer. Glyphosate damages gut flora, and kills useful bacteria in the soil. Our health is dependent on these bacteria, and disrupting them can have a profound effect on our biology. Our unprecedented problems with intestinal health may be the result. In addition, glyphosate promotes the development of antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
Glyphosate is increasingly being measured in blood, urine, and breast milk. It contaminates all kinds of foods including breakfast cereals, yogurt, potatoes, eggs, and baked goods—some with shockingly high levels. In one study, an instant oatmeal product measured 17 times the EPA-allowable daily intake. Even some organic products tested above the allowable limit. Glyphosate has invaded our food supply. Add it all up, and by the end of the day, you are being poisoned!
Cell damage and even cell death can occur at the levels found on Roundup-treated crops. Roundup is toxic to human DNA even at extremely low concentrations. Making matters worse, its so-called inactive ingredients including solvents, preservatives, and surfactants work synergistically to dramatically enhance glyphosate toxicity. Swedish scientists have linked non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma to glyphosate. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma used to be one of the rarest cancers. It is now one of the most common. Miscarriages, fertility problems and birth defects are skyrocketing in Argentina, where glyphosate spraying has been massive. Towns close to farms have miscarriage rates 100 times the national average. Organ damage in animals has occurred at levels as low as 0.1 ppm, yet Roundup-treated GMO corn can contain as much as 13 ppm of glyphosate. The average American consumes 193 pounds of GMO foods per year. Catastrophic!
The bottom line is this: glyphosate is a massive unfolding disaster, having a profound effect on your health and it’s helping to drive our epidemic of chronic disease. The food supply is loaded with glyphosate, and even some organic products are contaminated. Glyphosate has even been found in organic grains, especially wheat, barley, oats, spelt, and einkorn, and in eggs. It is thought that wind drift, rainwater, and irrigation water are responsible for the organic contamination.
Over 80 percent of the U.S. food supply is now contaminated with glyphosate. How do you protect yourself? First, stop eating glyphosate-contaminated foods—buy only organic foods. Don’t use any glyphosate on your lawn or garden. Filter your tap water with a high-quality reverse osmosis system, such as the Beyond Health system. Sauna on a regular basis to eliminate toxins stored in your fatty tissues. Avoid all corn, soy, and canola products as 90 percent of them have glyphosate residues. More than half the sugar on the market comes from contaminated GMO sugar beets.
Read my book The Great American Health Hoax. Government action is needed to outlaw these toxic chemicals.
