What is Glyphosate?
In modern times, with the pollutants and agro-chemicals in our environment, detoxing the body is as important as cleaning a house. One of those is glyphosate.
This popular herbicide weed killer was introduced by Monsanto in 1996 and sold under the name ‘Round Up’. Monsanto also created and popularized the use of GMO crops to go with their weed killer. While glyphosate has been around since the 1970s, most of it (about 75 percent) has been sprayed in the last 10 years, about 2.4 billions pounds in just the U.S.
Last year the International Agency for Research on Cancer, an arm of the World Health Organization, classified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen.
This made big news, raising concerns about the safety of farmworkers who apply massive amounts of Round Up to fields. It also raised questions about the health of people living in agricultural communities where Round Up is heavily used.
Dangers of Glyphosate
Unless you eat a clean, 100 percent organic diet, most likely you’ve eaten Monsanto’s GMO crops that have been sprayed with glyphosate.
The idea behind Round Up was to reduce the amount of herbicide farmers needed to spray on weeds. Instead the use of glyphosate have created “super weeds” that are resistant to most herbicides. Monsanto is working on a new chemical combination of herbicides and new GMO crops to combat this problem.
Some health experts have correlated the sharp rise of conditions like autoimmune disease and inflammatory bowel disease with the introduction of GMO crops. However, no one knows to what extent GMO crops and glyphosate can harm human health.
