Glyphosate May Contribute to the Epidemics of Obesity, Autism, and Others

Scientists think glyphosate, a patented antibiotic, may be behind the epidemic of many diseases as well as cancer

Thursday, July 5, 2018 - In addition to lawsuits that allege Monsanto Roundup herbicide is responsible for causing non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, a rare and deadly form of cancer, people are also suing the company claiming that Roundup is harmful to human beings in many other ways. A US District judge in Madison, Wisconsin recently approved a class action lawsuit alleging Monsanto engaged in false advertising when the company represented that Roundup herbicide kills only plant enzymes and is safe for humans.

At the core of the plaintiffs' allegations is glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide. Glyphosate was patented as an anti-biotic by Monsanto in 2010. Monsanto's antibiotic patent states clearly that the company has been aware of glyphosate's potential to affect human gut bacteria. Monsanto's glyphosate-antibiotic patent was originally intended for the company to profit from marketing glyphosate in combination with polyvalent anion oxalic acid in order to treat malaria. According to the glyphosate patent, "parasites from the phylum of Apicomplexa are often responsible for diseases in humans and other animals - and glyphosate is capable of inhibiting the growth of these parasites." Monsanto has covered-up its knowledge that glyphosate targets the same essential enzyme that is produced by human gut bacteria and Monsanto's assertion that Roundup is "safe for pets and people" is false advertising. The judge has approved the precedent class-action lawsuit alleging that glyphosate, disrupts human gut bacteria necessary to maintain human health.

In support of the science connecting glyphosate with the list of diseases mentioned below, researchers at Massachusettes Institute for Technology (MIT) have been studying the chemical's antibiotic effect on human gut bacteria and reached the conclusion that glyphosate may contribute to a long list of human diseases such as the epidemics of obesity and autism. Dr. Stephanie Stenett has studied glyphosate's connection to autism in particular and concluded that there could be no genetic change in humans to account for the hyperbolic rise in the rate of autism and that environmental changes must be the cause. There has been no greater change in the environment than the proliferate of the use of glyphosate on an ever-increasing variety of GMO farm crops the world over. Other diseases and conditions that glyphosate could be exacerbated include, "asthma, bacterial vaginosis, cardiovascular disease, cancer, Crohn"s disease, depression, inflammatory bowel disease, leaky gut syndrome, multiple sclerosis, obesity, Type 1 and 2 diabetes and Parkinson's disease," according to the executive director of Beyond Pesticides.

If the class action lawsuit against Monsanto is successful it could open an entirely new avenue for people suffering from autism or have children with autism to file a claim against the company for failing to warn consumers of glyphosate's deadly side effects. It is recommended that people contact an experienced Monsanto glyphosate cancer lawyer to determine if they qualify to file a claim against Monsanto. Pending lawsuits seek reimbursement for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other related expenses.
