“Glyphosate: Negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body,” they wrote in a study published earlier this year.
“Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.”
While being the most popular herbicide in global use, Glyphosate may also be the most deadly. And yet the USDA purposely avoids testing for it on foods, claiming that such tests are too costly and impractical.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity to Reuters, a cowardly USDA spokesman stated that tests for Glyphosate are “extremely expensive” to perform on a regular basis, so the agency simply doesn’t conduct them.
