Glyphosate is the active ingredient that’s made to be especially conducive to genetically modified crops. It’s said that about 75% of GM crops are designed to tolerate the active ingredient Glyphosate. It appears that human placental cells are sensitive to high concentrations of this substance. Roundup cancer lawsuit settlements assist the general public to know more about Monsanto products and its effects.
Professor Gilles-Eric Serallini at the University of Caen in France found that the trends appear to suggest that the use of the active ingredient may actually alter the growth of the placenta.
Quite dangerously an epidemiological study using the Ontario farming communities discovered that the use of Glyphosate doubled the risk of spontaneous abortions. Studies continued to indicate the ingredient may kill placental cells within eighteen hours of exposure.
In fact, the study team had exhibited an elevated rate of premature births and miscarriages. Such a trend would be worrisome for any farmers who intend to incorporate the “Round Up” weed killer within their GM crops. It indicates that there is a severe threat to human lives at various stages of development.
More concerning was that the finding that the additives inside the “Round Up” weed killer served the purpose of growing the damaging impact of Glyphosate on placental cells. Thus in effect, the finished weed killer was more detrimental than its active ingredients on their own. The adjuvants were the facilitators for its disastrous consequences by the active ingredient.
This is a surfactant or detergent representative that enables the chemical to be used as droplets. As part of this “Round Up” weed killer, it’s a necessary conduit for some of the damaging effects which have been identified.
