Glyphosate May Indirectly Threaten the World's Food Supply

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide may be on the verge of causing a global health crisis many times greater than the risks of developing cancer

Thursday, August 29, 2019 - Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide and others could be causing a dramatic decline in honey bee populations that plants and crops rely upon for cross-pollination and thus fruit and vegetable production. According to Epoch, "For the past decade, the University of Maryland's nonprofit Bee Informed Partnership has conducted its annual, nationwide honeybee survey: Bee colonies continued their steep decline, plunging 40.7 percent, year over year." The US honey bee population has been declining at around 30% per year. The report continues to state that the vast majority of the world's staple food crops rely on cross-pollination to survive and that the annual trends for bee depopulation put global food production at risk. Researchers are equally concerned that nothing is being done to stabilize or reverse the downward trend in the bee population and that Monsanto and other companies that use glyphosate have failed to address the issue. Honey bee populations around the world are monitored by the University of Maryland using with the colony loss survey.

Researchers at MIT are finding that glyphosate affects human gut microbes and can cause mutations in DNA in spite of Monsanto's claims that glyphosate is safe for human consumption. Dr. Stephanie Steneff, a leading biologist at MIT are claiming that glyphosate is may be the cause of the hyperbolic increases we are seeing in autism and obesity in the current generation of humans by damaging human DNA. Glyphosate is the only industrial chemical whose usage has increased proportionally to the increases in these diseases. Countries throughout the world have increased spraying glyphosate many hundred-fold since the turn of the century and the chemical may be the most probable cause of these problems. Researchers argue that there have been no other known environmental changes that could be responsible for the increases in autism, obesity, and bee population collapse occurring simultaneously. Glyphosate is the key that opens every door.

In addition to causing autism and obesity, Dr. Steneff has discovered that bee populations can also be harmed by glyphosate for the following reasons. According to The Epoch, "Glyphosate is a synthetic molecule. Bees can't metabolize it. They can't detoxify the neonicotinoids [contained with glyphosate in Roundup], whose definition is a systemic agricultural insecticide resembling nicotine. Bees depend critically on their microbiome to help digest food and boost immunity, just as is the case for humans. Furthermore, multiple species of lactobacillus [friendly bacteria] help to suppress fungal growth in the nectar and pollen that bees collect from flowers and insert into chambers in the honeycomb where the eggs are laid. Studies on poultry microbiota have shown that lactobacillus strains are especially sensitive to glyphosate."

If nothing is done to stop the declining trend in the honey bee population human extinction is a possibility. Global summarizes the problem facing humanity in a chilling report published recently. "The consequence of a dying bee population impacts man at the highest levels on our food chain, posing an enormously grave threat to human survival. Since no other single animal species plays a more significant role in producing the fruits and vegetables that we humans commonly take for granted yet require near daily to stay alive, the greatest modern scientist Albert Einstein once prophetically remarked, "Mankind will not survive the honeybees' disappearance for more than five years."
