Got Glyphosate?

Want to protect your immune system? Get glyphosate out of your body. 

The best way to reduce your exposure to glyphosate? Switch to an organic diet.

A study published this week in the journal Environmental Research supports previous research showing that an organic diet is an effective way to reduce the burden of glyphosate in your body. 

Reporting on the study for U.S. Right to Know, Carey Gillam writes:

“Notably, the researchers found that the children in the study had much higher levels of glyphosate in their urine than did the adults. Both adults and children saw large drops in the presence of the pesticide following the diet change.”

The study’s release coincided with a report last week by Michelle Perro, executive director GMOScience, highlighting the impact of glyphosate exposure on the body’s immune system. Perro wrote:

“Considering the fact that the average daily diet of most Americans is abundant in glyphosate as well as other pesticides and nutrient deficient (from soil depletion), one can appreciate that chronic dosing of glyphosate will result in an underperforming immune system which is unable to meet the challenges of modern day infections.”

Those “modern day infections” Perro refers to include, of course, COVID-19.

Though U.S. regulatory agencies steadfastly refuse to acknowledge the science, glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto/Bayer’s Roundup weedkiller, is linked to a host of human illnesses, including cancer, liver and kidney disease and chronic gastrointestinal disease.

And new studies highlight once again, the link between glyphosate exposure and infertility.

We can’t stop pushing for a ban on glyphosate. But until we get it, your best line of defense is to make sure you, and your kids, eat organic.
