Glyphosate, the Main Ingredient in Roundup Could be a Significant Toxin Related to Health Problems
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is the most popular herbicide used worldwide. Distributed as “minimally toxic to humans”, residues from the chemical are found in main foods of the Western Diet, comprised primarily of sugar, corn, soy and wheat. Glyphosate contamination in Midwestern U.S. streams has sharply risen due to the increased role of the herbicide in agriculture.

Claimed to be less toxic than aspirin, measurement of its presence in food is practically nonexistent. However, researchers and scientists believe that many of the health problems that appear to be associated with a Western diet could be explained by biological disruptions that have already been attributed to glyphosate. Such as digestive issues, obesity, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, Parkinson’s disease, liver diseases, and cancer, among others. Many other environmental toxins obviously also contribute to these diseases and conditions, researchers believe that glyphosate may be the most significant environmental toxin, mainly because it is pervasive ad it is often handled carelessly due to its perceived nontoxicity.
