Glyphosate Secretes a Toxic Effect on the Neurotransmission in Human Cells

Why Does Using Roundup Increase Your Cancer Risks?

The use of the weedkiller Roundup can increase your risks of developing cancers. When Roundup is used in the soil to kill weeds around a home garden, or weeds around crops in the farmer’s fields, the residuals of the dangerous chemicals in Roundup stay in the soil to leach into the water later on. A dangerous ingredient used in Roundup is glyphosate, which is a known carcinogen to humans and animals. If you are exposed to glyphosate in any quantity environmentally you can develop symptoms and side effects from coming into contact with this highly toxic chemical. As a winning Los Angeles Roundup law firm, we can help.

Leaching of Glyphosate into Soil Can Be Affected by the Weather and Ground Conditions

What Are the Effects of Roundup on Human Health and Residuals Found in Foods?

Monsanto Roundup is a chemical weed product that is used globally to reduce weeds in crops. But when Roundup is used near crops, it can also penetrate into the foods that we eat. In those cases, the dangerous chemical of glyphosate can be found in foods, and that can cause cancers in humans. The longer term risks to ingesting glyphosates will risk cancers for people who have this chemical to seep into the foods that we all eat. That means that fruits and vegetables that are sold in produce sections of the local grocery store, can be laced with glyphosates and cause cancers over the long term in human consumers.

Pesticides if safely used can help prolong shelf life for foods and food sources for our nation. But there is a high price to pay for the use of chemical herbicides such as Roundup. Roundup is used in herbicide control both before and after the planning of crops, including rices, wheats and beans. This can help the farmers to harvest easier, with a reduced level of weeds around the crops as they grow. When there re too many weeds, it can prevent a crop from developing its full potential, and the weeds will take the light, nutrients and space around the free growing crop, reducing crop yields and lowering the price for the farmers when they harvest their crops for the markets.

What Are the Cytotoxic Properties of Glyphosate in Roundup?

The chemical glyphosate (n-(phosphonomethyl) glycine) is used as a broad-spectrum type of weed killer. It is used globally to kill unwanted plants, by disrupting the shikimic acid pathway the amino acid of a plant, preventing the binding of phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to the enzymes necessary for the plant to grow. In short, it kills plants dead! The problem with the use of glyphosate is that it goes into the ground and then can be found in our food, drinking water, and can affect humans through exposure to this hazardous chemical. For this reason, glyphosates are toxic and can cause cancers such as:
