Your daily dose of poison

Let’s clear up confusion relating to Monsanto’s Roundup (active ingredient glyphosate).

We likely all received a dose of it today. How can I be sure? Because to date, every study in which they test people and animals for glyphosate has come up 100% positive. Not just high rates. Every person. Every animal:

     Toxic Alert: Herbicide Now Detected in Human Urine

According to the German journal Ithaka, every single urine sample collected from city dwellers around Berlin tested positive for glyphosate, with values ranging from 0.5 to 2 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml) – that’s between five and 20 times the permissible upper limit for glyphosate in German drinking water, which is set at 0.1 ng/ml.

     Toxic glyphosate (Roundup) found to be harming dairy cows

According to this latest indictment of the Monsanto-owned chemical, glyphosate, the primary active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, was identified in 100 percent of urine samples collected from dairy cows all across Denmark…

According to this study published in the Journal of Environmental and Analytical Toxicology, glyphosate levels in animals raised in conventional industrial husbandry were 20 times higher than those in GMO-free countries. Also:

In the present study, the median glyphosate concentration in urine of people consuming predominantly organic food was significantly lower than in urine of people consuming conventional food. Thus, the prohibition of herbicide use in organic agriculture greatly reduces the intake of glyphosate….

Glyphosate in urine of a generally healthy population was significantly lower than in urine from a chronically diseased population…

So while it is clearly advantageous for a person to eat organic food, preferably in a GMO-free country, even that doesn’t preclude one’s having some glyphosate in one’s system. How could that be? Continue reading
