Do you know about Glyphosate?

Glyphosate (in Roundup weed killer) linked to terminal cancer.

This is a warning about the dangers surrounding glyphosate. In August 2018 the agricultural company Monsanto was found guilty on all counts in an unprecedented trial. Dewayne Johnson, a groundskeeper, was awarded $289 million by jurors after finding that RoundUp, with its key ingredient glyphosate, caused his terminal cancer.

Glyphosate is a water-soluble toxin that will penetrate the lining of your stomach and so we consider it to be a horrible gut disruptor. Research has shown that it is linked to the rise of many chronic diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes, leaky gut, and obesity.

Keep in mind that it is not only farmers and groundskeepers who apply RoundUp to their crops that are being exposed to this hazardous chemical. Studies have shown that small amounts of glyphosate may still be present on fruits and vegetables being sold at your grocery store, especially if they have been genetically modified (GMO).

The top 5 GMOs you should avoid include corn, zucchini, squash, soybeans, and canola oil. Organic options for these products are available or just be sure that these foods are marked as being NON-GMO verified. You can also take a look at the list of the dirty dozen and clean 15. The Clean Fifteen is a list of 15 fruits and vegetables that were found to have the least concentrations of pesticides. The Dirty Dozen are the ones with the most pesticide residue after washing and peeling.

Please spread the word to your family and friends as well.
