Small amounts of glyphosate can cause cancer, inhibit proper endocrine function, cause birth defects, and inflict infertility upon unsuspecting women. Rats fed Monsanto’s maize developed massive breast tumors. EPA has proposed to hike allowable limits of glyphosate in GMO crops and in animal feed.
Much of the focus of late has been on the toxicity of the main ingredient in Roundup ‘weedkiller,' namely, glyphosate. And rightly so: far from being ‘practically non-toxic,' as advertising copy once bragged, the chemical has recently been shown to exhibit toxicity in the parts-per-trillion concentration range, and is being found literally everywhere: in the water, soil, air, rain and our food.
But very little research has been performed on its metabolites and so-called ‘inactive ingredients' until now.
A new study, published in Pesticide Biochemistry and Physiology titled, “The effect of metabolites and impurities of glyphosate on human erythrocytes (in vitro),” reveals that the problem with the growing global contamination of the biosphere with agrichemicals used in the farming of genetically modified foods is far worse than most will either admit or acknowledge.
The researchers describe the background context of their study:
Today, the dissemination …
The study minimizes the use of glyphosate and does not include the significance of other chemicals in RoundUp. There is a synergistic and cumulative toxicity level that this particular concoction can cause. The ‘other’ ingredients cannot be ignored, and used in connection with glyphosate itself can cause over 40 different adverse health conditions. The researchers do at least admit a previous study noted glyphosate forumalations – meaning the whole of the RoundUp product – can indicate
