Levels of glyphosate, a controversial chemical found in herbicides, markedly increased in the bodies of a sample population over two decades, a study published Tuesday in a US medical journal said.

COMMENT

Glyphosate is the active ingredient of many widely used, broad-spectrum herbicides and is commonly applied as a broadleaf weedicide in commercial agriculture. Created by Monsanto in 1970 and marketed from 1974 as “Roundup”, it has been used extensively across the world ever since. Although the United States remains its biggest consumer, the use of glyphosate has also increased in other countries over the years.

A recent study conducted by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute evaluated the effects of glyphosate at various doses on cell viability, and examined if there are ways to protect against the harm it causes. The results confirmed the extreme cellular toxicity of this chemical and showed that specific micronutrients applied in proper combinations and dosages can provide some protective effects against it. You can read about this important study in this article on the Online Journal of Cellular Medicine and Natural Health website.
