Are you aware that 1 in 8 American families at present cannot have a family? Fertility issues are a major concern in this world, and not because we need more citizens, but because infertility is a sign that there are deeper imbalances within the body.
According to a recent study, however, one contributing factor may be Monsanto’s glyphosate, the main ingredient in its RoundUp herbicide.
You don’t need us to tell you twice that glyphosate is far from good. Remember when Dr. Oz made waves by sharing his concern on glyphosate (and then got smear-campaigned by Monsanto)? Or how about when the WHO declared it to be “probably carcinogenic”? If you still have any doubt that glyphosate NEEDS to be banned from all countries, just keep reading.
In a study conducted by a team of scientists including respected Professor Gilles-Eric Séralini at the University of Caen, France, it was found that RoundUp chemicals altered testicular function after only 8 days of exposure.
Exposure at concentration levels of only .05% were found to be harmful to sperm function and caused abnormal sperm mutations varying in time spans from 2,3, and 4, months after brief exposure to the herbicide.
It is to be noted that the toxin did not alter the viability or mobility of sperm, but it did ignite a change in gene expression in the sperm cells, which altered the sex hormones androgen and estrogen High estrogen levels are another known contributor to infertility, as well as a myriad of other health concerns.
In the study, altered sex hormones caused a negative impact on sperm quality, raising serious concerns about a man’s reproductive health.
As shared by the researchers, the doses of herbicides used in the study “were much lower than the levels used in the fumigations,” and so the situation “is much more serious” than the study suggests because “glyphosate does not degrade.”
In addition, glyphosate has also been found to alter gene expression in human DNA. Add these two together (and many other researched concerns), and it is a huge wonder why this toxic compound has yet to be taken off the market.
If you’re against the rampant spraying of glyphosate, we urge you to take action and share this article. The more people educated on Monsanto and their dirty dealings in general, the better.
