There are givers of life and there are takers of life. Probiotics give life. Antibiotics take life. Glyphosate is an antibiotic which takes life. Originally used for cleaning steam pipes of scale build up, it is a chelator that inhibits mineral uptake in plants and the microbiological life in the soil and our gut.

Most of the genetically modified (GMO) foods that we are talking about today are bred to withstand glyphosate spray. It is also used as a harvest aid for many of non-GMO crops like wheat and barley, where it is taken by the plant and placed directly in the seed, as the maturing plant tries to pack as much nutrient density into its seed as possible.

Like most of the “cides” we use in fields today, it is not a targeted killer. It is an indiscriminate killer. As we know more about beneficial and “pest” insects, than we know about companion planting of crops, I will use the example of insecticides. For every bad insect in our fields, there are 1,700 beneficial. When we target a bad bug with an insecticide, normally we also kill many of the 1,700 beneficial. In order for the beneficial to repopulate, they need food; so the bad bugs have to repopulate first for the good bugs to eat and reproduce, causing us to need to spray again because when we killed our targeted “pest” insect, we also killed the natural defense system that works to keep that “pest” under control. A perfect setup for the chemical companies to increase profits.

Science postulated when you change one gene, you only change one aspect of the life form. This is failed science. When you change one gene, you change many things that that one gene helps to control.

Genes control the building blocks of life. Genetic expression depends on mineral uptake. Glyphosate does not disrupt that uptake of nutrients in human cells. It does however, disrupt that uptake in the cells of the biological flora that inhabit our digestive system. Without these living probiotic organisms, we cannot digest our food properly to get the proper nutrition for proper genetic expression.

Why has the mineral content in our food fallen by up to 65 percent since the 1950s?

Why are cattleman starting to question why corn doesn’t have the nutrient density to keep their cows alive as they see protein and mineral levels fall as yields are increased?

Most blame it on breeding of plants and that has contributed. Few get down to the real reasons.

Why is glyphosate so prevalent in our world today it is found in things as diverse as rain water and mother’s breast milk? Check out the work being done by Gabe Brown and the Burleigh County NRCS in North Dakota. A little education can go a long way.
