What Roundup (Glyphosate) Does To Your Body
It's primary poison is called glyphosate. Glyphosate was patented as a chelator. It chelates with all sorts of minerals making them unavailable, and these are the minerals we want to have available. . The reason it was patented, it was patented as a descaler to clean the mineral deposits inside industrial boilers and pipes. So it was a cleaning chemical. It kills the beneficial bacteria in the soil and also in our guts, but not the nasty pathogens. It blocks the shikimate pathway which is a seven-step metabolic route used by cells to function. The shikimate pathway is used by gut bacteria to produce the precursors to; serotonin, melatonin, dopamine. Causes a leaky gut. “When you take human cells in a Petri dish that are bound tightly together with tight junctions, and you add Roundup in that Petri dish, they separate. So it loses the tight junctions. If that happens inside our gut, that's leaky gut.” Linked to birth defects. Linked to increased cancer numbers.
