The new glyphosate study is hard to swallow. Food toxicity is a tough topic to digest. To doubt your food provider is to subconsciously doubt your childhood caretaker. Deep in the emotional cortex, the family is the last refuge we can count on. This is why we refuse to believe in the possibility of the unconscious provider who sells us a heart-shaped dream laced with poison, just to nudge up the ROI. Yet we also need a critical, objective evaluation of the food supply system, and particularly some of the chemicals we use to grow food with.
We’ve talked a lot about the GMO weed killer in the recent years, but nothing could have prepared us for the highlights from the new Glyphosate Study by Food Democracy Now and The Detox Project. The results are nothing short of a horror drama by the genre’s best-known director, Monsanto. Yet the study is not getting the attention it deserves, just like a dozen previous studies on glyphosate.
Independent, peer-reviewed scientific evidence now shows that glyphosate’s harm to human health could begin at the ultra-low levels of 0.1 parts per billion (ppb). As little as 0.05 ppb of glyphosate causes liver and kidney damage in rats, along with changes in the functions of more than 4,000 genes.
Meanwhile, the “allowable” level of glyphosate found in U.S. drinking water is 700 ppb of glyphosate.
