• Papaya from Hawaii (75%)

• Canola (90%) oil for cooking and salad dressings

• Sugar Beets (90%) fed to farm animals and 54% of “sugar” in processed foods • Squash- some yellow and zucchini

• Milk (17%) dairy cows treated with Recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH))

• Aspartame (100%) is a GMO

There has been a huge expansion of GMO corn, soy, cotton, sugar beet and canola crops in the last decade, which has led to sharp increases in glyphosate usage. Even meat, eggs and dairy supplies contain GMO and glyphosate because livestock regularly consume GMO glyphosate- treated food.

What about non-GMO foods and glyphosate?

Completely separate from the use of glyphosate on GMO treated crops is the application of this herbicide just prior to harvest of numerous conventional non- GMO crops. Monsanto explains how to

do this to control certain weeds AND to enhance yields at harvest. Monsanto rec- ommends that Roundup® be sprayed several days prior to harvesting wheat, barley, oats, canola, flax, peas, lentils, soybeans, and dry beans to enhance yield and dry up the seeds or beans. “This Pre- harvest Staging Guide provides informa- tion on how to maximize the efficacy and benefits of Roundup WeatherMAX® and Roundup Transorb® HC herbicides in a preharvest application.” After the publica- tion of this manual, rice and sugar cane are also frequently sprayed preharvest to desiccate or dry out the plants and improve the harvest. The problem is that these Roundup® products do not wash off if it rains. Just the opposite, other chemicals in the product, surfactants, enhance penetra-

tion of glyphosate inside the kernels or beans to be harvested. So every bite of these conventional non-GMO non-organ- ic foods or animal

feeds will contain

Roundup® also. What’s the problem with Roundup®?

The reason there is concern about Roundup®-treated crops is that glyphosate has numerous documented negative ef- fects in the human body. Roundup® is worse than glyphosate by itself since the surfactants in Roundup® allow glyphosate to penetrate deeper into cells across cell membranes in plants, bacteria and ani- mals. First, glyphosate inhibits enzymes in the shikimate pathway in plants, which is involved in the synthesis (or production) of the aromatic amino acids tyrosine and tryptophan. Monsanto has argued that glyphosate is safe for humans because we don't have a shikimate pathway. This is true, but it is a deceptive statement be- cause our friendly gut bacteria, which exist in our bodies, do have this pathway! The human body depends on its gut bacteria, or gut microbiome, to supply it with these essential amino acids. They cannot be produced without them. When bacteria are disrupted by glyphosate and produce lower levels of these amino acids the impact is significant:

• Tyrosine is converted into dopamine, then into norepinephrine, and in turn into epinephrine (adrenaline), and mela- nin. Without a sufficient supply of tyro- sine, deficiencies occur in these three neurotransmitters and pigment, and can result in fatigue, obesity, ADD, ADHD, Parkinson's disease and skin cancer. • Tryptophan is converted into serotonin and melatonin. Without a sufficient sup- ply of tryptophan, deficiencies occur in this neurotransmitter and hormone, and can result in food cravings, obesity, au- tism, Alzheimer's disease, depression, insomnia and violent behavior. • If the bacteria have a pathway blocked by glyphosate, their biochemistry shifts into producing toxins including ammo- nia.
