A research report from Finland is the latest providing evidence that glyphosate is harmful to human health. It shows that it kills many species of the little inhabitants of the human gut. You may or may not know, but the number of beneficial microorganisms in and on your body outnumber the actual human cells. Those tiny bits of life are essential for yours.
In 2018, I reviewed What’s making our children SICK? by Perro and Adams. Michelle Perro is a paediatrician, and her research has traced a great number of severe but vague, hard-to-diagnose illnesses in children to glyphosate intake. The world didn’t listen then, but hey, here is the evidence confirming her theory.
For myself, I am as upset by the implications for nonhuman species as for people. If glyphosate does this to us, it does it to all other mammals, and probably to many other kinds of life as well.
What a good idea to convert Earth into a poison soup!
This came in a few hours later:
Glyphosate has been firmly linked to the extinction crisis.
