Why Roundup is dangerous to your health

Roundup is one of the world’s most wide­ly used her­bi­cides. And it’s made a pile of mon­ey for Mon­san­to.

But is it safe?

The active ingre­di­ent in Roundup is gly­cophos­phate. Gly­cophos­phate residues are found every­where – includ­ing in soy, corn, wheat and sug­ar, the four major com­po­nents of the west­ern diet. If you take a sam­ple of your urine, it’s almost cer­tain to con­tain gly­cophos­phate residues.

Gly­cophos­phate dam­ages your enzymes. In par­tic­u­lar, it dam­ages enzymes that pro­tect your body from oth­er tox­ins. So expo­sure to gly­cophos­phate leaves your body vul­ner­a­ble to the effects of oth­er chem­i­cals in the envi­ron­ment. Expo­sure to gly­cophos­phate also dis­rupts the healthy bal­ance of bac­te­ria in your intesti­nal tract.

These effects of Roundup almost cer­tain­ly con­tribute sig­nif­i­cant­ly to the world­wide epi­dem­ic of inflam­ma­tion-relat­ed chron­ic con­di­tions, includ­ing heart dis­ease, can­cer, obe­si­ty, dia­betes, and demen­tia.
