How does Roundup affect your liver?

In 2015, glyphosate was finally labeled asprobably carcinogenic to humans,” by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

Glyphosate is believed to be very present in foods such as genetically modified corn and soy. According to Charles Benbrook, Ph.D., of Washington State University, in 2014 U.S. farmers used the equivalent of three-quarters a pound of glyphosate per acre of farmland. “When a single pesticide is used that widely, people can’t help but be exposed to it,” Benbrook explains.

According to, a small USDA study found “glyphosate residues on about 90 percent of 300 soybean samples.”

New research from King’s College London shows that glyphosate can do significant damage to your liver.

In the study, rats were exposed to glyphosate. After a two-year period, the rats showed signs of liver damage, especially alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and progression to non-alcoholic steatohepatosis (NASH).

Study author Michael Antoniou, Ph.D., told Sustainable Pulse:

“The findings of our study are very worrying as they demonstrate for the first time a causative link between an environmentally relevant level of Roundup consumption over the long-term and a serious disease — namely non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Our results also suggest that regulators should reconsider the safety evaluation of glyphosate-based herbicides.”

The researchers believe that glyphosate exposure may cause liver damage by mimicking estrogen and interfering with mitochondrial and enzyme function.

Glyphosate is also a patented antibiotic (Patent No.: US 7771736),” the researchers said, “and can inhibit the growth of susceptible bacteria by inhibition of the shikimate pathway and could cause dysbiosis in the gastrointestinal tract.”

The study was published in the journal Scientific Reports.
