Gut Wrenching New Studies reveal the Insidious Effects of RoundUp

By now, almost everyone has heard of Monsanto and their GMO “foods”, but did you know that Monsanto also makes an herbicide called RoundUp? The main ingredient in RoundUp is called glyphosate, and it’s at least partially to blame for many of Americas numerous chronic diseases among its people, this according to recent research.

This study, published in Entropy, has serious consequences for every single person living in developed countries. This herbicide is used on both conventional, as well as GM crops. More than one billion pounds are sprayed every year in the USA alone.

You should know that if you eat processed foods, most of which are made with GM corn or GM soy, you are eating the residue of RoundUp in every single bite. Perhaps this is why, in tests that have been done in 18 countries across Europe, have glyphosate in their bodies. Everyone should be extremely concerned. Read more about myths GMO companies want us to believe.

Although Monsanto continues to insist that their product is safe, a report that has been reviewed by several research scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) clearly shows how glyphosate ruins the health of human beings.

The residues from glyphosate is found in most commonly consumed foods in the USA, via GM sugar, GM corn, GM soy, and GM wheat. This chemical enhances the damaging effects of other toxins and chemical residues and can disrupt the normal functioning of the body and induce disease.

The company that makes RoundUp, Monsanto, continues to claim that their product is absolutely harmless to humans or animals because the main mechanism that it uses, (which allows it to kill weeds but not the food plant itself), called the shikimate pathway, is absent in all animals. However, what they fail to mention is that the shikimate pathway is present in bacteria. Once you know this, it’s easier to understand how it can cause such widespread harm in all animal life, and that includes humans.

The bacterium that lives inside your body outnumbers all your other cells 10 to 1. For every cell in your body, you have 10 bacteria of various types, and all of them have the shikimate pathway, so all the bacteria in your body will respond to the glyphosate. This chemical causes an extreme disruption of the bacterium’s function as well as its lifecycle.

Estimates say that it would take only 2.2 pounds (1 kilo) to kill off the entire human population. Once chronic inflammation sets in, your body is on its way towards chronic and potentially debilitating disease.

Dr. Seneff from MIT indicates that this chemical contributes to a multitude of chronic diseases and conditions that are now commonly seen in the USA including (but certainly not limited to):

  • Autism
  • Allergies
  • Cancer
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Infertility
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Depression
  • Obesity
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Crohn’s Disease
