Singing in the Rain

“Roundup herbicide, also known as Glyphosate (a major component of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide) is the most widely used herbicide around the world. A number of scientific studies surrounding Roundup have shed light on the dangers and health effects that are associated with it.

A new study from the U.S. Geological Survey, titled “Pesticides in Mississippi Air and Rain: A Comparison Between 1995 and 2007,” reveals that Roundup herbicide (aka glyphosate) and its toxic degradation byproduct AMPA were found in over 75% of the air and rain samples tested from Mississippi in 2007. Researchers weren’t surprised given the fact that 2 million kilograms of glyphosate were applied statewide in 2007. (0)(5)

“So, what is the toxicological significance of the discovery of glyphosate in most air samples tested? In the month of August, 2007, if you were breathing in the sampled air you would be inhaling approximately 2.5 nanograms of glyphosate per cubic meter of air. It has been estimated the average adult inhales approximately 388 cubic feet or 11 cubic meters of air per day, which would equal to 27.5 nanograms (billionth of a gram) of glyphosate a day.”  (source)

You can read more details about the study here.

Significant concentrations of glyphosate were also found in the urine of people across Europe. You can read more about that here.

When you ingest Roundup, or glyphosate, you are altering the chemistry of your body. It’s unnatural, and the body doesn’t resonate with it. Scientists have demonstrated that glyphosate interrupts the CYP pathway. CYP enzymes have many important functions. They are critical for normal, natural functioning of multiple biological systems within our bodies. Because humans that’ve been exposed to glyphosate have a drop in amino acid tryptophan levels, they do not have the necessary active signalling of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which is associated with weight gain, depression, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. (1)

Another report linked glyphosate to birth defects. The report provides a comprehensive review of the peer-reviewed scientific literature documenting the serious health hazards posed by glyphosate and roundup herbicide formulations.(2)(3) ….”

    good for you drummerboy,
    hard habit to kick for sure.
    i read a book about wheat and it discussed during WW1 how wheat shipments were cut off to the U.S. and for almost 6 months there was no wheat available here. Oddly enough across the country insane asylums reported a 60% recovery from various psychosis observed in the patients.

    Once the wheat shipments were on and the asylums could serve bread and such the psychosis came back to all the patients.
