As if we needed more reasons to avoid Roundup, yet here we are: a new study shows a causative link between supposedly “low” and “safe” doses of the infamous weedkiller and a serious liver disease:

Cutting-edge molecular profiling analyses reveal that the popular weedkiller Roundup causes serious liver damage to rats at low doses permitted by regulators. The findings suggest that residues of glyphosate-based herbicides in food could be linked to rises in the incidence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, obesity, diabetes and ‘metabolic syndrome’.

The study was led by Dr. Michael Antoniou at King’s College London and was recently published by Nature. Read more about the worrying results by clicking HERE and remember: when it comes to getting Roundup out of our food system, we cannot bend!
