Roundup Could Be Killing Us
Roundup is the most used herbicide in the world and could be killing us. Here in South Dakota you can find a bottle of Roundup in just about everybody’s garage. A new study is linking Roundup to many health problems and diseases, including Parkinson’s, infertility and cancers.
A report published in the scientific journal Entropy points to a residue called “glyphosate” as the ingredient that is thought to cause the health problems. It is the chief ingredient in Roundup weed killer and has been found in many food samples.
If you take care of a lawn, garden, or flower bed, you have probably used Roundup. Just about every farmer in South Dakota and the rest of the free world has used it. And here is the interesting part: I’m guessing even though this study links the herbicide to some rather nasty diseases, that because it would not be economically prudent for our food producers, we will not see any reduction in its use. Will you stop using Roundup? [Source]
