I’d rather rub glyphosate on my epidermis that ingest it. Malignancy is probable NOT the pressing issue here. It’s very dangerous to make pronouncements in science or any other technical specialty based only on first-order effects. It is the second and third-order stuff that’ll get you and scientific background shows this mistake again and again.
I remember while I was youngster ulcers were “caused” by stress and acid solution foods and such. Today We know better. If you take a look at medical “truth” from a century ago, you’ll find about half from it was dead wrong. News Flash – the rule still applies. I work as an engineer in a diagnostic capacity and I’m constantly telling younger talent, “The devil’s in the facts” (certain management needs to hear it too). Please, contemplate that we now have more details at the job here than the true assertions that glyphosate doesn’t straight affect pet cells (by design) and it generally does not cause cancer tumor (based on studies to date).
Glyphosate functions by blocking the Shikimate pathway, which is a protein-synthesis pathway used by microorganisms and plants. It interrupts the enzymatic process for the reason that pathway and protein synthesis stop. Kills the plant. Humans and animals don’t have the Shikimate Pathway so we’re OK with the stuff in smaller amounts (according to your authorities and the ag industry). Also, glyphosate virtually will go through you unmodified if ingested, and therefore your body is able to “clear” it with a while.
However, remember that it is “persistent” in both your body and the environment (it doesn’t just breakdown easily). So so good far. GMO work to date has produced “Roundup Ready” plants that are genetically engineered to be resistant to Roundup. Soy, canola, corn, alfalfa, cotton, sorghum, (, and I read that wheat is under development).
- Acrylic Fingernails
- Orange coloring
- “Witches Brew” ~ An Bewitchingly Enriched Facial
- Patanjali Sunscreen SPF 30 With Natural Moisturizers
- Avoid Long, Hot Showers
This allows farmers to apply roundup and nuke the weeds and the Roundup Ready vegetation carry on. Note above, just how many of those crops that are actually available Roundup Ready is fundamental building blocks in our ad system. Lots of cooking in canola oil – alfalfa, sorghum, and soy are pet feeds with people eating soy too – and corn is just about in everything (oils, corn products, as giving food to, sweeteners).
Some of this continual Roundup and other poisons carry through, remaining on the crops and/or feed at “allowable” levels. So we have our meatless burger in the OP with traces of Roundup. Now, back to the other organisms that are influenced by Roundup. Microbes. Done any reading on how important your gut’s microbiota is?
I’m not tackling that here but the info is readily available. Turns out a lot of the beneficial pests in your gut use the Shikimate Pathway, and are easily wiped out by Roundup. Just what exactly happens when otherwise “safe” levels of Roundup (and likely other as toxins) enter your gut? A microbiome die off is a recipe for all sorts of inflammatory and immune mischief. Again microbiome die off is a huge topic but let’s just look at one pathology/result.
Bugs in your gut die or are significantly depressed. The protecting level on your small intestine is in trouble. You now have what they call “leaky gut”. Undigested protein is now able to move across your small intestine straight into your system. Guess what your disease fighting capability thinks of that? Foreign proteins are identified as intruders and now you have an immune a reaction to what used to be food.
