Glyphosate & Human Health
Toxic environmental chemicals impact health. Deficiencies and destruction of gut bacteria can lead to mental and physical illnesses.

Glyphosate, an herbicide used to kill weeds and grasses that compete with crops, presents significant danger to helpful gut bacteria. It’s supposed to be safe for humans but adequate impact studies were not completed before the chemical was released for food use.

Amino acid glycine is one of the basic building blocks of protein. Glyphosate may be recognized by the body as glycine, even though one is harmful and the other is helpful. Glyphosate has very different properties from glycine and interrupts cellular function.

Listen as Dr. Stephanie Seneff joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to discuss the molecular composition of glyphosate and its impact on the human body.
