An alarming pattern has been distinguished through meticulous scientific study and research. It concerns the rise of different human diseases that matches the increasing use of Roundup, with the active ingredient responsible being glyphosate.
Epidemiological patterns studied by Dr. Don Huber of Perdue University have illustrated a perfect fit, he says, for over 30 different human diseases that demonstrate a pattern identical to the increased use of glyphosate on food crops in the US.
Other scientists and researchers have discovered the same pattern. Information concerning the tremendous rise in autism which perfectly matches the use of glyphosate has been done by Dr. Nancy Swanson, PhD. She has meticulously collected and analyzed all of this data for people to read about. You can access her published articles and reports on Sustainable Pulse.

All of these studies and research point to the bioaccumulation of the ingredient glyphosate. Over the years, Monsanto has strongly asserted that glyphosate is not dangerous to human health because the body excretes it. However, it becomes clear that the epidemiological patterns of human diseases with increased use of glyphosate clearly indicate otherwise. In other words, there is increasing evidence that bioaccumulation of glyphosate is a VERY real health hazard.
The most recent evidence for the bioaccumulative effect of glyphosate that I'm aware of involves a study of American women's breast milk. The pilot study was conducted by Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse. The study proves without doubt that Monsanto's assertions are wrong. For in fact, the study found that mothers had glyphosate that had accumulated in their bodies to such an extent that they were passing the toxin onto their babies via their breast milk. The really alarming point for me is that even those women who have been actively avoiding glyphosate by eating organically still have evidence of bioaccumulation. As a result, they too are passing on this terrible health hazard to their infants.
Two doctors by the names of Dr. Anthony Samsel and Dr. Stephanie Sneff have studied and written about the link between Roundup and celiac disease and gluten intolerance. You can read more about their article and work on the Sustainable Pulse website mentioned above.
So, what can you do? You can write to the FDA, USDA and the EPA and demand that this toxin be banned because of the evidence we now have of its accumulation in human beings to the destruction of their health. It's time for Americans to put pressure to bear on government agencies, whose mandate is to protect health. We must let them know that we insist on getting rid of this environmental health hazard.
