Glyphosate Poses Many Difficult Questions

It may be too late to ban glyphosate and also too risky to continue to use it

Thursday, May 30, 2019 - There are so many potential problems with using glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide that it is hard to know where to begin. Glyphosate has become so ingrained in the financial profile of farmers throughout the world that to ban it would potentially cause a major disruption in the global food supply, driving prices through the roof, and causing famine and starvation in third-world countries. That may be putting it a little overly-dramatic, but glyphosate is used in such enormous quantities around the world that I may even be understating the problems. Monsanto Roundup herbicide cancer lawsuits represented by national attorneys offer a no obligation and free consultation to families and individuals harmed by Roundup herbicide.

Banning glyphosate could cause a global economic depression. Farmers are operating on razor thin financial margins in order to survive and to tell them that they must instead weed their crops mechanically would drive up costs so much that they probably would go out of business. Farmers say that without glyphosate their water bills would also skyrocket not to mention that the seeds for the entire next crop would have to be repurchased and also the new weedkiller that they would have to resort to could be much more expensive.

In addition to farmers, municipalities, and cities, especially in green states like California, are eager to be politically correct and ban glyphosate from being used to kill weeds and keep their properties looking neat. Several major cities in California, as well as in Florida, have banned the chemical. Florida not only uses glyphosate to eliminate weeds it also sprays the chemical directly into the waterways to fight their blue-green algae problem.

Of all of the reasons that glyphosate should at least be studied more thoroughly is that it may not even work in the long term. Farmers are reporting that they have to spray an ever-increasing quantity of glyphosate on their crops as their weeds are developing glyphosate resistance and last years dose of Roundup does not put a dent in them. This is a permanent problem and if glyphosate is sprayed in greater quantities humans will also be exposed to greater and greater levels of glyphosate and eventually will go over the tipping point. Glyphosate is already showing up in dangerously high levels in the food chain as most "natural" packaged breakfast cereals and health bars already contain border-line acceptable levels of the chemical. Think of the level of glyphosate that will be found in our foods in ten, twenty and thirty years! Most children's breakfast cereals are already over the limit as it pertains to containing unhealthy levels of glyphosate and environmental organizations are concerned that we could be poisoning the entire next generation. As frightening as that may be, even more, concerning is the potential for glyphosate to damage the chromosomes and DNA and adversely affect generation after generation.

Suing Monsanto into oblivion could financially destroy the company, and banning glyphosate could be an economic food calamity. Glyphosate alternatives could be even more harmful to the environment or to human health not to mention more expensive yet if we continue to use glyphosate we are truly rolling the dice on the health of the next generations. We may already be at a point of no return.
