Investigation on Roundup - glyphosate at VitaminDWiki

This is an attempt to see if Roundup/Glyphosate causes problems with Vitamin D - started May 2013

Hypothesis: Glyphosate ==> disrupt enzyme ==> one of the causes of vitamin D reduction

Reasons to think that the hypothesis is correct

  1. Glyphosate ==> disrupt enzyme: conclusion of one study (would really like more . . )
  2. In the past 40 years that Glyphosate has been increasing, vitamin D has been decreasing.
  3. The close association between increased use of Glyphosate and increased diseases that are associated with low levels of vitamin D - such as Autism

Looking for data to support or refute the hypothesis
1) There are only a few countries with total bans on GMO foods for 10 years
Have those countries had fewer problems with low levels of vitamin D and associated diseases?

Note: I believe that many things reduce vitamin D besides Glyphosate
- examples include latitude, skin color, season, air pollution, being indoors, etc. http://is.gd/lowvitamind
So I do not expect to see a smoking gun, that is, lots more vitamin D in the countries which have banned GMO foods.

2) Cattle that have been fattened (last 3 months of their lives) on corn (with Glyphosate) seem to have very low levels of vitamin D in the meat
How much vitamin D is in the meat of organic cattle?
Suspect that it should be similar to what cattle had 80 years ago. (1000 IU per kg??)
How much vitamin D is in the cattle meat in the countries which ban GMO foods
This assumes that the GMO ban applies to animal feed as well as human food

"Bayer faced tens of thousands of claims linking the weedkiller to cases of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Some of the money is set aside for future cases."
"Bayer, a German company, inherited the legal morass when it bought Roundup’s manufacturer, Monsanto, for $63 billion in June 2018. It has repeatedly maintained that Roundup is safe and will continue to sell the product without adding a warning on the label."

Number of Bayer Lawsuits May Increase to 45,000 Mercola Oct 2019

GMO Apples approved by USDA Feb 2015

GMOs invade fruit industry: Apples, pears, cherries and peaches to all become unlabeled GMO Natural News and others.
Uses gene silencing is used to turn down the expression of polyphenol oxidase (PPO), thus preventing the fruit from browning.- Wikipedia
USDA approved after only looking into the possibility that GMO apples might contaminate other plants
UDSA did not, apparently, consider that

  1. GMO apples might have some harm to humans
  2. GMO apples might be less able to deal with pests ( the deleted browning response)

Good news - retailers afraid consumers will reject all of their products if they feel they might contain GMO - 2015
