An international team of experts has concluded, based on the results of a comprehensive new animal study, that #glyphosate, the primary active ingredient in #Monsanto’s #Roundup herbicide, is highly toxic to humans – even at the very low doses that both Monsanto and the #EnvironmentalProtectionAgency (#EPA) claim are completely “safe.” Monsanto is trying to discredit the findings.
According to the research, exposure to relatively small doses of glyphosate directly interferes with normal sexual development. It also damages genes and disrupts the body’s delicate microbiome, which represents the community of beneficial bacteria that live inside the gut and help digest food, while also supporting a healthy and robust immune system.
Researchers administered to rats drinking water tainted with glyphosate at levels that the EPA has declared to be a “safe limit.” The team kept track of the rodents’ health from before their birth until their death – a well-designed format that allowed them to carefully study any potential adverse effects in a proper context.
After accounting for various outside factors that may have also influenced the rats’ health, the research team concluded that exposure to “safe” levels of glyphosate resulted in “significant and distinctive” changes to their internal bacterial compositions while still in the womb. The overall population of Lactobacillus in particular, a “friendly” bacteria, was significantly decreased in the rats as a result of glyphosate, while populations of “unfriendly” bacteria were observed to increase dramatically.
Interestingly enough, the glyphosate-exposed mothers did not appear to be affected in this way by the deadly chemical. But their offspring were, suggesting that the chemical poison inflicts harm in ways that are still poorly understood by science.
These findings, declared study co-author Dr. Daniele Mandrioli, a researcher at The Ramazzini Institute in Bologna, Italy, are “quite remarkable” and “shouldn’t be happening” – at least if what Monsanto and #America’s corrupt regulatory bodies insist is true about glyphosate. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾#FuckMonsanto
