Glyphosate interferes with many enzymes in the human body. It interferes with the body’s ability to detoxify environmental toxins. It chelates (read: depletes) trace minerals in both plants and animals. It damages healthy gut bacteria. It is estro- genic and causes breast tumors in rats that have been bred to mimic human breast cell responses. It damages human DNA. Farmers use Roundup® to kill weeds, which are harmful to their crops. In the


past, it couldn't be sprayed indiscrimi- nately because it would destroy the crops as well. That's where GMOs (genetically modified organisms) came into play. Sci- entists began to genetically modify crop seeds to grow into plants that would be resistant to glyphosate. While the safety of GMO technology and seeds is hotly de- bated, this article does not address these issues.
