Glyphosate May Be Responsible For a Host of Diseases Not Only Cancer

Glyphosate sprayed on the crops that go into everyday packaged breakfast cereals may be harming our children

Tuesday, August 21, 2018 - Now that a jury has found that glyphosate caused cancer that is killing California school landscaper DeWayne Johnson, awarding him $250 million in punitive damages, it is only logical to ask if there are other ways that glyphosate might be harming us. The first question that comes to mind is "Are our children at risk from Monsanto/Bayer's glyphosate cancer?" That is the question being asked as scientists are finding trace amounts of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup Ready herbicide in everyday packaged cereals that we as a nation feed ourselves and our children. According to an article in the New York Times the other day, "An environmental research and advocacy group has found traces of a controversial herbicide in Cheerios, Quaker Oats and other breakfast foods that it says could increase cancer risk for children." Scientists tested 45 different packaged breakfast items and found that approximately 75% of them had elevated levels of glyphosate. Monsanto attorneys have argued that the levels are within the government's own threshold levels for the safe consumption of glyphosate, however, researchers argue that glyphosate bioaccumulates in the body and that the government's level is too lenient.

Cancer may be the least of our glyphosate concerns. Researchers have found that glyphosate bioaccumulation in our bodies and could be responsible for other health problems such as autism, obesity and gut bacteria. According to "Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer's disease." Monsanto originally patented glyphosate as an "anti-biotic" knowing full well that although spraying glyphosate effects plants only, the substance also interferes with the production of human gut bacteria essential for human health.

One of the leading scientists on the subject of glyphosate bioaccumulation is MIT professor Dr. Stephanie Senoff. Dr. Senoff has pointed out, and I am summarizing, that the geometric rise in instances of autism globally parallels the geometric increase in gross volume of glyphosate sprayed on our food and feed crops around the planet. Dr. Seneff rightly points out that such a steep increase in autism and obesity cannot be attributed to genetic factors which take decades or centuries to manifest but only due to a change in the environment. The most prevalent change that we have made to our environment and to the global food supply for that matter is the level of spraying glyphosate, a known antibiotic on virtually everything we eat. Dr. Seneff also points out that the healthy reproduction of human gut bacteria relies on the "shikimate-pathway" enzyme, the same "plant-only" enzyme that Monsanto acknowledges glyphosate disrupts. Monsanto Roundup lawsuits will serve to secure needed compensation for families harmed by Roundup cancer.
