Due to tremendous marketing efforts by RoundUp’s maker, The Monsanto Corporation, RoundUp is one of the number one selling weed killers in the USA today.
This is true not only for residential private use but also for industrial applications.
Glyphosate, a primary ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp Spray, is designed to be toxic to plants. The problem is that it has also been found to be not only toxic but carcinogenic to humans and animals as well.
Though it has been banned in the European Union it is still freely used here in America. According to Deborah Kurrasch of the University of Calgary in Canada’s research department “Researchers are not only concerned about the immediate consequences of improper use of the chemicals by applicators, but also about potential effects caused by chronic exposure to applicators or animals—via the skin or through inhalation, for instance—as well as what happens when they accumulate in the environment.” The physical effects are felt gradually over time.
This is what South Florida is experiencing right now. A build-up of toxic chemicals. You may have been hearing a lot about Red Tide and Blue Green Algae here in South Florida along both the east and west coasts, but what isn’t often said is that the discharged water being released from Lake Okeechobee contains high concentrations of the chemicals in RoundUp because of the existence of US Sugar Corporation located in Clewiston, Fl.
Why that matters:
US Sugar uses RoundUp to spray on crops not only to deflect and deter bugs but also to help prematurely ripen the crops so they can maximize the potential for income from every crop. Just as the sugar cane is forcefully ripened so are the red tide blooms as well as the algae blooms. This is a good chunk of the reason why the bloom has now lasted a full year. This isn’t influenced by nature and it isn’t normal. Our oceans, wildlife, and residents are paying the price.
While it may be obvious when red tide warnings are posted, not to go in the water, the problem isn’t just at the beaches or around the water. These particles (Red Tide (Brevetoxin), Blue Green Algae (Cyanotoxins), and RoundUp (Organophosphates), are all aerosolized and carried by wind currents, it has been said, up to 10 miles in though it may very well be more.
This means – if you live anywhere near a coast in South Florida, you are breathing these particles in. People who have no contact with RoundUp or any other pesticide or herbicide, have been falling ill with non-specific sources. Doctors have often been at a loss for a diagnosis.
The test for it is called the Cholinesterase RBC and Plasma blood test for pesticide toxicity (organophosphates). It is important to note that those reading the results on this test know that according to the CDC the lab values marked as acceptable (green) are incorrect. Toxicity can present at just 40% of the top acceptable level.
If you do have organophosphate toxicity, it is highly advisable to do a neurotoxin cleanse.
This type of toxicity can present symptom wise in a number of ways including:
- Headache pain
- Frequent feelings of a head cold or flu
- Itching eyes
- Blurry Vision
- Itchy face
- Tinnitus (ringing ears)
- Excess saliva
- A runny Nose
- Watering eye (usually only one side)
- Sensitivity to light
- Glassy eyes
- Memory problems
- Muscle twitches similar to restless leg syndrome
- Brain fog
- Digestion problems
