[Warning] Protect Your Grandbabies from This Poison
There’s nothing like welcoming a new grandchild into the family.
And when your daughter or daughter-in-law is pregnant, it can be an exciting time for everyone.
But one of the most popular weed-killers around could be turning many pregnancies into nightmares.
New science shows that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, could be leading to shorter pregnancies and premature babies.
Here’s everything you need to know to keep your precious grandkids safe.
For years we’ve known that the glyphosate in RoundUp may be linked to cancer.
But it looks like the risks don’t stop there.
A new study published in Environmental Health examined 71 pregnant women living in Central Indiana, the heart of the Midwest.
Almost all of them had glyphosate in their urine.
That’s scary enough… but the women with the most glyphosate present in their bodies ultimately had shorter pregnancies.
It looks like glyphosate shaved a full week off of pregnancies… and keep in mind, that’s just the AVERAGE.
And none of these women worked in agriculture.
Instead, most of their exposure came from food.
Genetically-modified (GMO) foods are being absolutely drenched in glyphosate, putting us all at risk.
In fact, 300 million pounds of RoundUp are applied every year in the U.S. alone.
Among pregnant women, in particular, glyphosate can cause oxidative stress which may lead to premature labor.
Expecting mothers should do all they can to avoid herbicides like glyphosate – eat organic foods, and never ever buy GMO products.
It may cost a few more dollars now, but it’s a small price to pay to protect our families.
