Latest bad news for Monsanto: the main ingredient in Roundup weed killer, glyphosate, has been linked to liver disease, according to research results found by the University of California, San Diego. Paul Mills, the Director of UCSD’s Center of Excellence for Research and Training in Integrative Health, found that a group of patients suffering from a specific type of liver disease had elevated levels of glyphosate in their urine. Dr. Mills said those patients with more severe liver disease had higher levels of glyphosate excretion, which means that they had higher levels of exposure to glyphosate, probably from their diet.
This latest research adds at least one more "found" disease linked to Roundup. The other widely known disease caused by glyphosate exposure is non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), a deadly form of cancer that’s been found in people with long-term exposure to Roundup weed killer.
Traditional medicine, such as Chinese medicine, has for centuries linked all systems in our bodies - which means that breathing in or ingesting a poison may not only harm one's lungs (respiratory system), but will also injure, for instance, one's liver, gallbladder, kidneys (endocrine system, digestive system, urinary system), and brain (nervous system). It's no surprise to those of us who have studied Chinese medicine to hear of this latest research from UCSD.
