    • However, Roundup is actually 125X more deadly to human cells than Glyphosate
  • Many countries now ban Glyphosate
  • Some bio-fuels for airplanes, trucks, and autos contain glyphosate
  • A crop can be called organic even if Roundup was used to dry it
        wheat, oats, beans, lentil, sunflower, soy, rapeseed oil, etc

Even Low Levels of Glyphosate Alter Your Gut Microbiota - Mercola includes 2 videos with references

  • "Since mammals do not have the shikimate pathway, it was suggested that glyphosate would not affect human health. However, some microorganisms do have the shikimate pathway, and it’s via this link that many of glyphosate’s adverse effects in humans may occur. According to the study"

The Defender

  • "New research by top U.S. government scientists found that people exposed to the widely used weed-killing chemical glyphosate, a key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, have biomarkers in their urine linked to the development of cancer and other diseases."
  • "The CDC reported that out of 2,310 urine samples taken from a group of Americans intended to be representative of the U.S. population, 1,885 were laced with detectable traces of glyphosate."
  • "The EPA now is revisiting its glyphosate evaluation and expects to issue a decision for glyphosate in 2026."

US court bands Dicamba (again) - Feb 2024

US court bans three weedkillers and finds EPA broke law in approval process

  • "This is the second time a federal court has banned these weedkillers since they were introduced for the 2017 growing season. In 2020, the ninth circuit court of appeals issued its own ban, but months later the Trump administration reapproved the weedkilling products, just one week before the presidential election at a press conference in the swing state of Georgia."
  • "Bury wrote that the EPA did not allow many people who are deeply affected by the weedkiller – including specialty farmers, conservation groups and more – to comment."
  • "Syngenta is also facing nationwide litigation over its paraquat herbicide, which thousands of plaintiffs claim causes Parkinson’s disease.""

Monsanto’s New Weed Killer, Dicamba, Divides Farmers - NYT Sept 2017

UNew York Times
The replacement may be worse than Roundup in many ways

  1. More expensive
  2. Damages trees in addition to killing weeds
  3. Drifts farther
    "Because genetically modified crops allow dicamba to be sprayed later in the year, after crops emerge from the ground, and in hotter and more humid weather, the chemical is susceptible to what is known as “volatility” — it can turn into a gas and drift onto whatever happens to be nearby."
  4. Health problems?
    "“For both dicamba and 2,4-D, the reproductive risks and birth defects” are “most worrisome.”

    "Particularly, EU lawmakers asked for an immediate ban for non-professional use and use in public parks, gardens and playgrounds, and a five-year phasing-out period for all agricultural use."

    "So, there are a number of different uses and a number of different applications. It’s used in our citrus groves in Florida. The farmers there are spraying it around the root structure to try and keep weeds from competing for things like moisture and nutrients. The science on that I have read … is more the impact on the soil because glyphosate kills the beneficial microbes in the soil that help the plant to remain healthy. So, when you’re killing those beneficial microbes in the soil, the plant is more susceptible to disease, or perhaps needs more fertilizer,"
    "There currently are about 3,500 plaintiffs who are suing Monsanto, alleging specifically that Roundup gave them non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and that Monsanto knew and covered up the risks."

Perhaps can flush Glyphosate from body with high dose Glyscene for a few months

Top Tips to Detox Your Body Mercola Jan 2019

  • "To eliminate glyphosate, you need to saturate your body with glycine. Klinghardt recommends taking 1 teaspoon (4 grams) of glycine powder twice a day for a few weeks and then lower the dose to one-fourth teaspoon (1 gram) twice a day. This forces the glyphosate out of your system, allowing it to be eliminated through your urine."
  • "I personally have been taking 1 gram twice a day for some time now. The glycine is inexpensive and actually tastes sweet. Ideally it is best to take it around the time you are eating food that might be contaminated with glyphosate."
  • quote from expert
    • "At least for a while, we use high doses of glycine. There are no issues with it. There are no problems with it. The other one that has been published is admittedly only a chicken study that shows that humic acid and fulvic acid can completely clean up the organ systems of a chicken …
    • "So, we do the glycine for a while. We monitor the urine output of glyphosate. When that slows down — in some people two months, in some it's six months — we back off on the glycine and go on a smaller dose."
