Research has found a link between Glyphosphate (the active ingredient in Roundup weedkiller) and human breast cancer.
The study, which was accepted for publication in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology last month, indicates that glyphosate, the world’s most widely used herbicide due to its widespread use in genetically engineered agriculture, is capable of driving estrogen receptor mediated breast cancer cell proliferation in a parts per trillion concentration range.
What it essentially means is that if you eat something that is genetically engineered, or that has been grown with the use of Roundup, you stand an increased risk of getting breast cancer. This could be a reason why breast cancer is becoming increasingly more common.
I wonder what Monsanto will say about this – with all their “Roundup ready” seeds.
As far as I am concerned, this is the best reason ever to only eat organic produce and to avoid ALL GMO crops and anything that might contain GMO ingredients, especially since most processed food manufacturers don’t have to reveal that they use GMO ingredients in their products in the USA.
