WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR CHILD A COOKIE IF IT CONTAINED GLYPHOSATE?
Before you get into the meat of things, let’s answer a question that you don’t have yet but that you will have about 2 minutes into reading this article:
“Really? It can’t be that bad, can it?”
It’s natural to be skeptical about glyphosate being a threat your health. The FDA and other food regulatory agencies come out with a “safety” report every year that regurgitates the same message that you will find on any huge biotech conglomerate’s website: glyphosate has not been found to be harmful.
And the fact that the head of the FDA for the past 8 years was a former huge biotech conglomerate Vice President is certainly no conflict of interest. In the vein of protecting ourselves, we won’t name names (you can probably guess who we are referring to) but we will refer to the propogators of glyphosate as HBC (huge biotech conglomerates).
Back to your impending skepticism – yes, from what we know now, it is that bad. Scarier still, it may be a lot worse. Initially I was extremely skeptical, as I tend to be distrustful of statistics (they seem to always be heavily manipulated) and have an aversion to zealous opinions.
But the growing body of evidence is undeniable. The facts are presented as objectively as possible, and sometimes there are multiple presentations of data to show that no matter how you slice it, glyphosate is one toxic soup.
For the skeptics out there, just think about cigarettes in the 1950s and early 1960s. Remember then? Cigarettes were “not found to be harmful” by health organizations, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary – more on this in the next section. Or remember dioxin (Agent Orange) and DDT? Ask a Vietnam vet about them.
