Here’s a video by Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a professor from MIT who also lives in Hawaii part of the year. She has done amazing research on the effects of glyphosate (the main active ingredient in Roundup© herbicide, the world’s biggest selling chemical). In this video she discusses its connection to major health problems. People have been led to believe that Roundup© is safe, however it is now known to be an endocrine disruptor in parts per trillion! The manufacturer, Monsanto, hid animal studies which resulted in cancer, but the data has now surfaced. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared glyphosate a probable human carcinogen–classified “probable” due to the lack of human studies.
Dr. Seneff has a lot more videos on YouTube and published scientific papers alerting people of the dangers and how to overcome the problems. One of the main things is to eat organically grown foods that are nutrient dense and free of toxic agricultural chemicals. By definition, organic foods are GMO-free. Just avoiding GMOs is not enough because even many non-GMO crops like wheat, other grains, beans, etc. are sprayed with Roundup© just prior to harvest. Roundup© is systemic, which means it can’t be washed off the food. Meat and dairy animals in our country are mainly fed GMO feeds with high levels of glyphosate. This comes through to the consumers of the meat and dairy products. Even fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds can be contaminated.
Also, don’t use Roundup© in your yard! Members of my community are working to stop the roadside spraying of this chemical by the county. Many countries have already banned its use entirely. It needs to be banned worldwide!
