A concerning study released last week showed high levels of
Glyphosate/Roundup in human mothers’ indicating bioaccumulation.
The Glyphosate levels were 760 to 1600 times higher in the U.S. human
milk than Europe allows in drinking water. Many of the mothers tested
ate as much organic food as possible.
Glyphosate chelates (binds up) minerals essential to normal
development, including calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron,
zinc and nickel, making them unavailable to the growing cells.
Chemicals including Roundup, sprayed into the air by ground or aerial
application, travel for hundreds of miles. The chemicals, including
three of the most damaging to fetuses, Glyphosate, Chlorothalonil (a
fungicide) and 2,4-D, fall onto all the foliage. All plants and
everything that eats plants are exposed and affected by mineral
chelation. All mammals that consume mostly plant material would
consequently have the highest levels of Glyphosate in their milk,
especially large grazing animals.
Severe Zinc deficiency during fetal development of males causes
underdevelopment of the male reproductive organs on the external skin,
including micro-penises, short scrotum and hypospadia. Increases in
reproductive malformations as determined by measurements of over 500
specimens in Western Montana closely correspond to the increase in use
of Roundup and Chlorothalonil.
Bone malformations, especially underbite because of underdeveloped
premaxillary bones on grazing animals, are caused by fetal manganese
deficiency and thyroid hormone disruption. The astronomically high
underbite prevalence closely corresponds to the increase in use of
Roundup, Chlorothalonil and 2,4-D, all of which cause thyroid hormone
disruption and Glyphosate affects manganese levels. Most concerning,
Glyphosate binds up several minerals that are absolutely essential for
normal brain development. Could high levels of Glyphosate exposure
during fetal development and in milk be the reason autism, ADHD and
other brain disorders on newborns have increased so drastically?
Obviously, baby animals are not ‘Roundup Ready’!
