Editor’s note: Eat organics to avoid this dangerous chemical.

(Natural News) A Massachusetts Institute of Technology scientist recently revealed the many ways that glyphosate can cause adverse effects that could weaken the ability to fight off infections, including SARS-CoV-2.
According to senior research scientist Stephanie Seneff, one of the key aspects of glyphosate toxicity is the destruction of immunity. It weakens the immune system’s ability to ward off viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 — the one that causes COVID-19.
She explained that glyphosate toxicity needs the adaptive immune system to kick in a big way, leading to cytokine storms, where the body produces cytokines at a rate much higher than normal, and subsequent organ damage.
Seneff pointed out that while the correlation does not necessarily mean causation, it is also important to note that many chronic diseases have risen over time, especially with the increased use of glyphosate. (Related: Monsanto ordered to pay $87M following reckless disregard of Roundup verdict.)
Glyphosate negatively affects health
Immunity is not the only one negatively impacted by the consumption of glyphosate. It also disrupts the gut biome, causes digestive disorders and even causes cardiovascular disease and other problems. Studies have shown that many chronic diseases start in the gut, and it is important for anyone to eliminate foods contaminated or grown with glyphosate to restore the diversity of the gut’s microbiomes.
The older you are, the more exposed to glyphosate you are, causing your cells to malfunction. Glyphosate is usually present in grains and vegetables as farmers use them often, so even if you don’t believe you’ve consumed them, there are bigger chances that you have, and the chemicals have likely accumulated in your body over the years.
Glyphosate interferes with the body’s immune system, and thus, those who have high levels of glyphosate are likely going to have a difficult time recovering from viruses including SARS-CoV-2.
Glyphosate contamination is rampant because it can travel far when airborne. However, the bigger concern is that many people ingest it regularly. Here are some things you can do to avoid glyphosate exposure and poisoning:
- Look for labels: Some companies certify their products to be glyphosate residue-free, and you can check labels for this guarantee. However, you can also avoid exposure by opting for certified organic foods as well.
- Grow your own food: There are health and environmental benefits to growing your own plants and vegetables, one of which is that you know what chemicals you are or aren’t using to let them grow healthily. If you don’t have time to grow your own garden, you may source produce from local farmers that you trust.
- Avoid weed killers: Weed killers that use glyphosate as an active ingredient should be avoided at all costs. If you get in contact with the substance, wash your hands and body afterward. If you notice glyphosate exposure symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or irritation in the mouth or throat, see your primary care physician immediately.
Protecting one’s self from COVID-19 with masks, vaccines, and social distancing is far less effective than taking care of the immune system. It is especially important to talk about the important role of the immune system as a strong line of defense against microbes that can cause diseases, including the virus causing COVID-19.
It is also important to note that living a healthy lifestyle free from poisonous chemicals could risk the mortality rate of the pandemic, and that everyone must be careful about the dangers of toxic chemicals present in the food supply.
