What if I told you that you’re being bombarded by a specific toxin day in and day out that’s threatening your health now and in the future? In today’s episode, we’re going to talk about glyphosate – the most widely used herbicide in the world. We’ll discuss what it is, why it poses health risk, and how to protect yourself from its damaging effects. 

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in RoundUp, the most-used chemical fertilizer in the world, and has been linked to various diseases. Initially, chemical fertilizers seemed like a good idea in theory: help farmers get control over weeds, grow more food, faster. But now, research shows that what was initially good in theory may now pose serious health risks including cancer. 

Problems associated with glyphosate: 

  • Damages healthy gut bacteria in humans and animals (CAFO rely on GMO corn for animal feed) 
  • Antibiotic resistance 
  • Interference with biochemical processes like methylation and detoxification 
  • Bioaccumulation of chemicals in body affecting gene expression 
  • Prevents detoxification 
  • Probable human carcinogen 

How to avoid exposure to glyphosate: 

  • Reduce intake of GMO foods 
  • Buy all Dirty Dozen foods organic and non-GMO if possible  (linked below) 
  • If on a budget, check out the Clean 15 list (linked below) 
  • Avoid biggest GMO foods: corn, soy, canola oil 
  • Opt for grass-fed and finished meats and poultry 
  • Supplement with probiotics and prebiotics 
  • Glycine supplementation: collagen or bone broth 
  • Avoid processed foods 
  • Regular detoxification through sweat, exercise, supplements (apple cider vinegar and activated charcoal)
