A recent study* conducted by a German university found very high concentrations of Glyphosate, a carcinogenic chemical found in herbicides like Monsanto’s Roundup, in all urine samples tested. The amount of glyphosate found in the urine was staggering, with each sample containing concentrations at 5 to 20-fold the limit established for drinking water. This is just one more piece of evidence that herbicides are, at the very least, being sprayed out of control.
Glyphosate in Monsanto’s Roundup Impacting Global Health
This news comes only one month after it was found that glyphosate, contained in Monsanto’s Roundup, is contaminating the groundwater in the areas in which it is used. What does this mean? It means that toxic glyphosate is now polluting the world’s drinking water
through the widespread contamination of aquifers, wells and springs.
The recent reports of glyphosate showing up in all urine samples only
enhances these past findings.
Monsanto continues to make the claim
that their Roundup products are completely safe for both animals and
humans. However many environmentalists, scientists, activists, and even
doctors say otherwise. Glyphosate radically affects the metabolism of
plants in a negative way. It is a systemic poison preventing the
formation of essential amino acids, leading to weakened plants which
ultimately die from it.
A formula seems to have been made to not
only ruin the agricultural system, but also compromise the health of
millions of people worldwide. With the invent of Monsanto’s Roundup
Ready crops, resistant superweeds are taking over farmland and public health is being attacked. As it turns out, glyphosate is also leaving behind its residue on Roundup Ready crops, causing further potential concern for public health. Glyphosate is even contributing to escalating rates of mental illness and obesity through the depletion of beneficial gut flora that directly regulates these functions. But it certainly doesn’t stop there.
Researchers tested roundup on mature
male rats at a concentration range between 1 and 10,000 parts per
million (ppm), and found that within 1 to 48 hours of exposure,
testicular cells of the mature rats were either damaged or killed. Even
at a concentration of 1 ppm, the Roundup was able to affect the test
subjects by decreasing their testosterone concentrations by as much as 35%.
