April 25 (Reuters) – Heavy use of the world’s most popular herbicide, Roundup, could be linked to a range of health problems and diseases, including Parkinson’s, infertility and cancers, according to a new study.

The peer-reviewed report, published last week in the scientific journal Entropy, said evidence indicates that residues of “glyphosate,” the chief ingredient in Roundup weed killer, which is sprayed over millions of acres of crops, has been found in food.

Those residues enhance the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and toxins in the environment to disrupt normal body functions and induce disease, according to the report, authored by Stephanie Seneff, a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Anthony Samsel, a retired science consultant from Arthur D. Little, Inc. Samsel is a former private environmental government contractor as well as a member of the Union of Concerned Scientists.

  1. Well the obvious thing to do is boycott them but that won’t be enough in the long run. Here’s a small list.

    Googling Boycott Monsanto will provide more extensive list of products that include foods that use their GMOs. Unfortunately it seems to have grown to a shocking percentage of the market and alternatives will be necessary simple things like Prego, Rice a Roni and Pringles and much more are on the list. For me Pringles will be easy to abandon and I suppose I can give up the others but then what.

    Buy local for one thing this can be more \natural and at least during the harvest season we can trace it. using more basic ingredients and cooking at home helps too. .
