Study reveals high glyphosate levels in GMO consumers, chronically sick humans

Posted: March 27, 2014 |   Comments

( A new study published in the open-access Journal of Environmental & Analytical Toxicology has shown that animals and humans who consume genetically modified food frequently display detectable concentrations of glyphosate in their urine. In contrast, humans who predominately eat organic food and animals fed non-GMO feed have lower glyphosate levels in their urine. Glyphosate is the active ingredient of Roundup, an herbicide that also contains other compounds which increase the toxicity of the chemical.

Furthermore, people who are chronically ill were also found to have higher levels of glyphosate in their urine than healthy individuals. The fact that people with higher concentrations of glyphosate in their urine are chronically sick shows that such high concentrations do not mean the chemical is being successfully eliminated from their bodies. Rather, it reveals that glyphosate could potentially bioaccumulate in the human body, thus causing a host of chronic illnesses.

In light of this and other recent studies, the global use of glyphosate severely needs to be re-evaluated, and further investigation into its health effects is certainly warranted.
