EPA Approves Rise in Glyphosate Residue for Monsanto’s Herbicide
The new EPA rule comes despite independent studies that show glyphosate can be harmful to human health as an endocrine disruptor, according to The Cornucopia Institute.
The institute said a June 2013 study concluded glyphosate “exerted proliferative effects in human hormone-dependent breast cancer.”
Another study, released in April, concluded that “glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of other food borne chemical residues and environmental toxins Negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body.”
