Stone-Age industry funded science suggested that the higher the dose of a chemical the more dangerous it was, however modern independent science has discovered that many toxic chemicals have as much or more of an influence on our health at low doses – these chemicals are known as hormone hackers (endocrine disruptors).
A study from March 2015 stated that the health costs to the European Union of hormone hacking chemicals is over $ 150 Billion per year! The study stated that lower IQ, adult obesity and 5% or more of autism cases are all linked to exposure to endocrine disruptors.
Glyphosate is likely to be one of these hormone hacking chemicals according to independent science. Find more information on this here.
Glyphosate in Numbers
(parts per billion – ppb)
0.1 ppb: altered the gene function of over 4000 genes in the livers and kidneys of rats.
0.1 ppb: severe organ damage in rats
0.1 ppb: Permitted level for glyphosate and all other herbicides in EU tap water
10 ppb: toxic effects on the livers of fish
700 ppb: alternations of kidneys and livers in rats
700 ppb: Permitted level for glyphosate in U.S. tap water
11,900 ppb: found in Genetically Modified (GMO) Soybeans
