Glyphosate "herbicides" as a carcinogen

You may have heard of glyphosate as it is a chemical that is approved to be used in herbicides. But did you know that it could lead to cancer!!

Glyphosate is a chemical chelator that binds tightly to minerals. Therefore when applied on crops as a herbicide it removes minerals from the food we eat which cause mineral deficiency which is linked to cancer.

Minerals are also essential for specific pathways to occur as the cytochrome p450 pathway which on disruption could lead to cancer.

Glyphosate also damages the mitochondria and can degrade into other chemicals that are known to be carcinogenic.

Even the tiniest amount of glyphosate could have a tremendous effect on health and may lead to cancer.

Watch this video to understand more the dangers of glyphosate.
