    Scientists and environmentalists have been warning us against its use for a decade. Now it's active ingredient glyphosate is actually in our food.

    From the Food Poisoning Bulletin
    Residues of glyphosate are found in sugar, corn, soy, and wheat, some of the main components of the Western diet.

    Inflammatory bowel diseases have substantially increased in the last 10 years in the U.S. and Western Europe; glyphosate may be to blame. In addition, female rats are very susceptible to mammary tumors following chronic exposure to glyphosate, which means “something else may be going on”, according to researchers. Researchers said that the systematic search of the literature “has led us to the realization that many of the health problems that appear to be associated with a Western diet could be explained by biological disruptions that that have been attributed to glyphosate, including digestive issues, obesity, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, Parkinson’s disease, liver disease, and cancer, among others.”
