Weed-Killer Products Containing Glyphosate Deemed Carcinogenic by World Health Organization.

Weed-Killer Products Containing Glyphosate Deemed Carcinogenic by World Health Organization. | Cancer - Advances, Knowledge, Integrative & Holistic Treatments | Scoop.it

Glyphosate, one of the world's most common weed killers, is a "probable carcinogen."

Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

The active ingredient glyphosate of the herbicide ‘Roundup’ made by Monsanto has been classified by WHO as “probably carcinogenic to humans."

Glyphosate is employed in more than 750 herbicide products and has been detected in the air, during spraying and in foods.

This is not the first time such assertions have been made in connection with the use of glyphosate and its detrimental effect on human health. Environmentalists, consumer groups and plant scientists from several countries have warned that heavy use of glyphosate is causing problems for plants, people and animals.

A study done at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reports that “residues [of glyphosate] enhance the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and toxins in the environment to disrupt normal body functions and induce disease. Negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body.”

Agricultural chemicals have also been linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Deterioration of public health and liver cancer has also been shown to parallel the increase in glyphosate use and genetically modified crops, based on US government data.

Herbicides Found in Food Supply and Linked to Cancer

From www.dailymail.co.uk -
The peer-reviewed report, published in the scientific journal Entropy, says evidence shows residues of glyphosate, the chief ingredient in Roundup, which is sprayed over millions of acres of crops, has been found in food.
 
Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

The main ingredient in weed-killer is glyphosate, which is sprayed over millions of acres of crops, lawns, gardens and golf courses. Environmentalists, consumer groups and plant scientists from several countries have warned that heavy use of glyphosate is causing problems for plants, people and animals.

A study done at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reports that “residues [of glyphosate] enhance the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and toxins in the environment to disrupt normal body functions and induce disease. Negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body.” The report links glyphosate to a range of health problems and diseases, including Parkinson's, infertility and cancers.

Monsanto is the developer of the most popular weed-killer herbicide, Roundup, and also a suite of crops that are genetically altered to withstand being sprayed with the Roundup weed-killer.
