Glyphosate is the main active ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide, RoundUp®. Monsanto claims — and the Food and Drug Administration concurs — that glyphosate is excreted from the human body, despite numerous studies that show it causes health problems.
But studies are finding that glyphosate and other herbicides and pesticides are accumulating in humans and other animals and creating a toxic overload of possibly cancer-causing agents and toxins.
One study in Germany has found extremely high concentrations of glyphosate in all urine samples tested. In each sample, concentrations of glyphosate exceeded that established for drinking water by five to 20 times. Another study, published in the Journal of Environmental & Analytical Toxicology, found that people who are chronically ill have higher levels of glyphosate in their bodies than healthy people.
Glyphosate has been found in human breast milk in 18 different countries. And researchers have found that glyphosate and other chemicals in RoundUp® lead to “significant” negative effects on red blood cells.
