So my question for today is this . . . Is there a connection between "glyphosate" and this "virus"???????
Okay . . . so first let's talk about what "glyphosate" is . . .
"Glyphosate" is a synthetic (manmade) amino acid that is the most widely "biocide" used on the "planet". And its presence in our food consumption and animal feed is found everywhere!!!!
Simply said . . . "glyphosate" is an herbicide that is applied to the leaves of plants to kill both broadleaf plants and grasses. It's the most widely used "pesticide", and Americans have applied 1.8 million tons of "glyphosate" on their gardens and grass since its introduction in 1974.
And the reason the founding company and/or FDA approves this deadly chemical . . . is due to the fact that "pure" glyphosate" claims to be low in "toxicity" . . .
But, the problem is this . . . other companies purchase this ingredient and mix "glyphosate" with other ingredients that help "glyphosate" get into the plants.
And this . . . now makes "glyphosate" very, very toxic!
So what does "glyphosate" do to the human body?
Well . . . products containing "glyphosate" can cause eye or skin irritations. If you breathe in this chemical, it can irritate the nose and throat. And by chance someone gets some in their mouth . . . it will increase saliva, burn the mouth and throat, and cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
That doesn't sound deadly . . . right???
Wrong . . . the International Agency for Research on Cancer categorizes "glyphosate" as a probable "carcinogen" for humans.
Okay . . . so I guess the best solution would be to eat all "organic" grown foods . . . right???
Well . . . that would help . . .
But . . . this toxic product is in many other element other than just our soil, plants and ultimately our food . . .
"Glyphosate" is a primary drinking water contaminant registered by the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. And in animal studies . . . "glyphosate" caused developmental effects, such as reduced infant body weight and skeletal changes. So what does it do to us???
Well . . . science goes on to say . . . the positive aspect of this toxin, is that "glyphosate" DOES NOT build up in the body . . . so I guess they're trying to tell us that supposedly the human body has the ability to dispose of it and flush it out.
BUT . . . recent research studies indicate that regular exposure increases the risk for developing (NHL) Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, which is a cancer that originates in the "lymphatic system".
Now . . . listen up people . . . the "lymphatic system" as we know from previous Health tips, is the body's flushing system of toxins, waste material, toxic chemicals and cancer cells.
So logically speaking . . . if this toxic chemical called "glyphosate" . . . through regular exposure increases the risk for NHL . . . then obviously this toxic chemical "DOES" build up in the body . . . THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM!!! Which can cause cancer.
And other risk factors include age (being over 60), immunosuppressive medication and exposure to certain bacteria such as HIV or Epstein-Barr infection.
And guess what??? It also is a concern with certain viruses!!! Which we'll talk about in a moment.
Okay . . . so what "products" contain "glyphosate" other than food and water???
Well . . . that would be our air!!!!
You see . . . "glyphosate" as we now know, is the active ingredient in one of the most heavily used herbicide in the world, especially the U.S. And the increased use on our GMO corn acreage makes this the problem . . . But . . . it's not what you think.
This corn is what's used to produce the ethanol that's added to our gasoline.
So it's not the overspray of toxic "glyphosate" that gets into our air . . . as much as the gas fumes that are everywhere.
Okay . . . so why do so many of us have a compromised system in the first place???
Well first . . . our Western diet and the fact that so much of that food comes in contact with this toxin. There was a study done that found 750 food products contained over the regulated about of "glyphosate" in them, with Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch, all Nature Valley Granola Bars, Multigrain Cheerios, Doritos, Oreo's, Goldfish, Ritz crackers, Coffee beans, Corn products, Soy products and "Canola oil" being at the top of that list.
And second . . . because of the heavy pollutants in the air we breathe in populated areas.
Okay . . . so if you're still having a hard time believing this . . .
Tomorrow we'll continue to research . . . if there's a connection to this virus.
