Collagen triple-helix

Add the dots up!  Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, found in muscles, joints, bones, blood vessels, tendons and ligaments.  

Simply described by Dr. Seneff: Collagen folds into a beautiful triple-helix structure that gives it its strength, flexibility and ability to hold water. Large parts of the molecule have a GxyGxyGxyGxy pattern, where every third amino acid is a glycine residue. These glycines are what hold the triple helix in place. When they are substituted with glyphosate, it disrupts the folding of the collagen, and therefore disrupts the physical properties of bones and joints, causing a much higher susceptibility to injury damage.
