Glyphosate – Great Plains Laboratory

$214.00

Glyphosate is the world’s most widely produced herbicide and is the primary toxic chemical in Roundup™, as well as in many other herbicides.  In addition, it is a broad-spectrum herbicide that is used in more than 700 different products from agriculture and forestry to home use. Glyphosate was introduced in the 1970s to kill weeds by targeting the enzymes that produce the amino acids tyrosine, tryptophan, and phenylalanine.  It is estimated that 6.1 billion kilograms of glyphosate has been applied worldwide over the last decade.

Description

Recent studies have discovered glyphosate exposure to be a cause of many chronic health problems.  Exposure to glyphosate has been linked to autism, Alzheimer’s, anxiety, cancer, depression, fatigue, gluten sensitivity, inflammation, and Parkinson’s. The causes for these disorders have been linked to glyphosate’s impact on gut bacteria, metal chelation, and P450 inactivation. It can enter the body by direct absorption through the skin, by eating foods treated with glyphosate, or by drinking water contaminated with glyphosate.

A recent study stated that a coherent body of evidence indicates that glyphosate could be toxic below the regulatory lowest observed adverse effect level for chronic toxic effects, and that it has teratogenic, tumorigenic and hepatorenal effects that can be explained by endocrine disruption and oxidative stress, causing metabolic alterations, depending on dose and exposure time.   A Canadian study found the toxin in the umbilical cords and circulating blood of 93 percent of pregnant women tested.
