One of the greatest threats to human health today is a violent chemical called glyphosate, which is the main ingredient in the famous weedkiller, Roundup. Glyphosate is sprayed on lawns and gardens all across America, with little regard to what it’s actually doing to the cellular health of men, women and children. The top genetically modified crops in the world, such as corn and soybeans, are genetically modified for a reason – to withstand glyphosate spraying, year after year.
As glyphosate accumulates in the environment, and as it’s introduced into the human body through the food supply, how does it affect the nervous, immune and endocrine systems of humans?
Glyphosate is a violent chemical because it goes to war with the natural functions of the human body, including the endocrine system. The human endocrine system is made up of glands that produce hormones. Hormones are chemical messengers that signal for the balance and homeostasis of important bodily functions. When hormones are disrupted by glyphosate, important functions such as metabolism, behavior and fertility are adversely affected. Glyphosate goes to war with the human ability to reproduce.
The chemical glyphosate also acts much like an antibiotic in the human gut, destroying beneficial microbes that aid in digestion and initiate immune system functions.
Mixed with emulsifiers and surfactants, glyphosate becomes a powerful force, penetrating to kill not only plant cells, but also microbial cells interacting with human cells. This causes genetic damage, changing human DNA in ways that people cannot understand. When pregnant woman are exposed to glyphosate early in gestation, the chemical adversely affects the sexual differentiation stage of embryonic development.
