First-ever comprehensive project finds that 93% of Americans have glyphosate in their bodies
Thursday, December 27, 2018 by: Ethan Huff

If you think the proliferation of crop chemicals throughout the environment isn’t all that big of a deal, think again. A comprehensive analysis of glyphosate in particular – glyphosate being the main ingredient in Monsanto’s (now Bayer’s) Roundup herbicide – found that a shocking 93 percent of all people have the chemical lingering inside their bodies.

The research project out of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) involved conducting urine samples on test subjects from all across the country, including in areas far away from crop fields where glyphosate and other chemicals are applied. What they found is that almost everyone nowadays is contaminated with glyphosate, which has been identified as a contributor to cancer.

Lab results for the first 131 test subjects were released in 2015, while more were published in 2016. All of them show that glyphosate is everywhere, including in the general food supply where ingredients like conventional wheat and soy typically harbor substantial levels of not only glyphosate but also atrazine and many other noxious poisons.

Glyphosate destroys human hormones, especially in males

A number of independent studies have confirmed glyphosate’s endocrine-disrupting properties, referring to it as a “hormone hacker.” One particular paper out of India that was published in 2015 found that when male rats were exposed to glyphosate, their male hormones were completely thrown out of whack.

In another paper published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, researchers learned that glyphosate substantially increases one’s risk of developing skin cancer in the form of melanoma. This was specifically linked to farm workers who, while working in open-air sunlight, were developing the disease at much higher rates than others.

Since glyphosate is also sprayed all over public parks and in home gardens to kill weeds, it also affects city-dwellers – this in addition to the glyphosate that everyone is exposed to through the food supply. There’s really no denying it, which is why independent scientists the world over are pushing for an across-the-board ban in the interest of public health.
