This interview is based on my June 2018 newsletter (you are welcome to subscribe!) ... Glyphosate shuts down the shikimate pathway in plants and bacteria, which critically interferes with their immune defense against pathogens. Human beings and mammals obtain three key amino acids from bacteria and plants' shikimate pathway, and thus a vast swath of biology is harmed by glyphosate's use. In addition, glyphosate takes the place of the basic amino acid glycine in plant and animal proteins, where it causes malfunctions and deep harm to health. We have seen many ailments and diseases rise steeply since glyphosate was introduced into agriculture (as a dessicant and microbe destroyer prior to the late 1990s, and for herbicidal purposes thereafter). Listen to the whole show for one way to combat glyphosate!
