Study exposes deadly secret behind GMO weedkiller
Imagine heading over to your faucet for a glass of water — something you probably do every day.
You want to believe that what comes out of your tap is safe. That our government is doing everything it can to protect you.
But it turns out that with each sip of water you may be getting a bellyful of one of the most dangerous weedkillers on the planet.
And the risk is much worse than we’ve ever been led to believe.
A new study out of England is proving that even tiny amounts of Roundup — the herbicide dropped by the ton on genetically modified (GMO) crops — in our water can trigger severe and permanent damage to your kidneys and liver.
For their study, scientists from Kings College London fed rats water containing miniscule levels of Roundup — THOUSANDS of times lower than what our government says is safe.
But within just two years, the rats were already experiencing organ damage. And researchers believe that Roundup may even be behind an epidemic of kidney disease in countries around the world.
Roundup is now the most widely-used herbicide in the world. It’s sprayed all over GMO crops and runs into lakes, rivers and other sources of drinking water when it rains.
And our government has been lying to us about the safety of Roundup for years. First we were told there were no health risks — and then earlier this year, the World Health Organization declared that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, probably causes cancer.
We’ve also been told that small amounts of the weedkiller in our water wouldn’t harm us — but now that’s looking like a lie, too.
Skipping GMO foods won’t be enough to avoid this poison. To keep Roundup out of your life — and your belly — invest in a reverse osmosis water filtration system for at least your kitchen tap.
A good RO system will take out the Roundup — and any of those other nasties that our government keeps insisting are safe.
