It has been revealed by numerous scientists that herbicides and pesticides bioaccumulate in the body – meaning the traces of chemicals we are exposed to in foods consumed daily end up adding up to larger loads of toxicity in the body long term.
One recent study published in the Journal of Environmental & Analytical Toxicology has now proven that animals and humans who consume GMO foods – those that are loaded with glyphosate chemicals, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp – have extremely high levels of glyphosate in their urine. Conversely, people who eat primarily organic foods, and animals that are given feed from non-GMO plants, have lower levels of glyphosate in their urine.
While Monsanto and the biotech corporations would like us all to believe that GMO foods are the ‘same’ as non-GMO foods, the study also shows that people, who are often sick, have higher levels of glyphosate in their urine than healthy people.
The study abstract concludes:
“The presence of glyphosate residues in both humans and animals could haul the entire population towards numerous health hazards, studying the impact of glyphosate residues on health is warranted and the global regulations for the use of glyphosate may have to be re-evaluated.”Acute toxicity is when someone is exposed to a toxin to such a degree that it causes bodily damage. This can cause numerous unwanted reactions, from a mild rash to a headache, to organ and cell damage that leads to death.
The acute toxicity level for accidentally ingesting glyphosate is relatively low. This means that if you inadvertently ate some GMO corn chips at a restaurant every blue moon, you likely wouldn’t end up being ill, because the body would find ways to divest itself of the toxin. However, this study now proves that chronic, repeated exposure to glyphosate and GMO causes long-term and devastating harm to both animals and humans. The chemical interferes with the biochemistry of bacteria, leading to diseases like obesity, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and cancer.
