So what exactly is Glyphosate in Roundup?
Glyphosate and Roundup is an herbicide for weed control that was introduced back in 1974. It has been used as an antibiotic and mineral chelator that immobilizes the soil and steals nutrients from foods. Corn, oats and soy aren’t what they used to be. Studies prove that there is less lycopene (bright red carotene and carotenoid pigment and phytochemical found in tomatoes and other red fruits and vegetables) in a tomato today, prior to the introduction of Glyphosate/Roundup.
This toxic chemical that has been listed as a carcinogenic (cancer causing ingredient) by the World Health Organization and mimics Glycine., an amino acid in our bodies (Glycine is a neurotransmitter with the ability to be both excitatory and inhibitory, meaning it can function both to stimulate brain and nervous system activity, or to quiet it.) and cross over the blood brain barrier. Because Glyphosate/Roundup mimics Glycine and crosses over the blood brain barrier, studies show that it can lead to ADD/Anxiety/Depression which can lead to addiction. Other symptoms it may cause are related to Cancer, Parkinson’s and even Autism.
