Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is the most popular herbicide used worldwide. Monsanto asserts it is not toxic to humans, but here a new study proves otherwise.
Residue of Roundup are found in the main foods of the Western diet, composed primarily of sugar, corn, soy and wheat. Glyphosate inhibit necessary key enzymes in our bodies which create a toxic effect on beneficial insects, animals and people. These enzymes play crucial roles in biology, one of which is to detoxify xenobiotics, a chemical which is found in an organism but is not normally produced or expected to be present.
Stephanie Seneff , a Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory who uncovered the results of this study, explains the documented effects of glyphosate and its ability to induce disease. And it also shows that glyphosate is the “textbook example” of the disruption of homeostasis (the imbalance of cell regulation which can lead to the cause of many diseases) by environmental toxin such as found with Roundup.
This new study shows that Roundup enhances the damaging effects of other food borne chemical residues and environmental toxins. Far-reaching health implications of this toxic chemical significantly impact the body due to its use in farming and other areas where food may grow. And what this new study has uncovered is the effects of Roundup are insidiously manifesting slowly over time as inflammation damages many different cellular systems throughout the body.
