Does Glyphosate Detrimentally Affect the Nervous System in Humans?

Yes, Glyphosate Is a Detrimental Chemical to the Human Nervous System

The herbicide Roundup uses the chemical glyphosate, which is a strong toxin to the human body. It affects the human central nervous system, and can cause cancers, complications and other breakdown in bodily functions with exposure to glyphosate chemicals. Many people are exposed to glyphosate and don’t realize it, as it can be used in residential and commercial applications to kill weeds in outside environments. If you are exposed to glyphosate or Roundup, you might later develop a cancer or other problems related to serious illnesses on account of that exposure.

How much is your Los Angeles Roundup Lawsuit Worth?

The value of a California Roundup lawsuit can vary greatly depending on the specific circumstances of the case. Factors that can affect the worth of a Roundup lawsuit include:

  • The severity and extent of the plaintiff’s injuries: Roundup has been linked to various types of cancer, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, so plaintiffs who have developed these serious health conditions may be entitled to larger compensation amounts.

Many People Are Accidentally Poisoned by Roundup and Glyphosates Today

You can be accidentally poisoned by Roundup and glyphosates quite easily, if you are anywhere in the vicinity of where these dangerous chemicals are being administered and used in outdoor applications. Roundup is commonly used as an herbicide to manage weeds in residential and commercial settings. The herbicide Roundup is especially potent, and can be deadly if ingested or exposed to it. You can be “minding your own business” and still be exposed to glyphosates. That is because once it is unleased into the environment, it is highly toxic and can affect you if you are even exposed to it for a short amount of time. Glyphosates are dangerous in all types, and can cause serious reactions to anyone exposed to these hazardous chemicals. Many times, there will be some concern with the exposures to Roundup, in regard to know how to treat the exposed areas or to manage any poison control if the herbicide is accidentally ingested. This concern is because the formulas for glyphosates and surfactants can vary widely by manufacturer and by herbicide, it is difficult to know the exact formula that is used in any one application. Children as well as adults are susceptible to poisoning from Roundup and glyphosate use and applications in the environment.1

People are accidentally poisoned by glyphosate when it gets into their food, on their hands and they touch their mouths or food resources or it is airborne and they inhale it in contaminated environments. Anywhere that there are agricultural and industrial uses of Roundup, as well as in residential home environments where weed killers are used, there is a risk of an accidental poisoning of glyphosate. Technically, whether you are outside or inside, you can still be susceptible to being poisoned by Roundup, if it is stored in an area that you may be near, pass by, or have access to in a storage area. This can apply to an area where the chemicals are stored in a commercial or residential area. That means, if you are working in an office or near a home, you can accidentally be poisoned by someone else using Roundup and glyphosates in that environment. A person can accidentally ingest Roundup in any season, summer and winter included, when there is an improper storage of the chemicals and containers of the herbicide.

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:

 Liver cancer

Common Los Angeles Hernia Mesh Injuries?

If you have ever heard of a condition called a hernia or had one yourself, you understand that it is a painful condition that does deserve urgent medical attention. Hernias are ultra-common diseases, whereby there is a protrusion of the intestines, abdominal fatty substances, or the urinary bladder that come out of a weakness or opening in muscles lining the abdomen wall.

When you go to the doctor for an annual physical or when you do suspect that you have a hernia, that is when it will be diagnosed. It is usually found by your primary care provider by feeling the skin, to reveal either an anatomical defect or a definite connective tissue disorder. Hernias don’t often happen as the usual result of one event, but rather become a multifactor process where an anatomical weakness, defects and a possible increase in abdominal pressure make the perfect conditions to harbor a hernia defect.
