Banned in Russia & Mexico: GLYPHOSATE is Ruining Your Health

Why is Russia & Mexico Banning Our Food?

The ongoing debate on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and chemical herbicides like glyphosate has taken a new turn. It seems that our concerns are not unfounded, and countries around the world are taking action to protect their citizens from potential health risks associated with these substances. A cleaner food supply starts with awareness, and that’s what we’re all about here at MeetJames.

Recently, Russia suspended the import and use of American genetically modified (GM) corn after a French study revealed a potential link to cancer risk. The research conducted at the University of Caen found raised levels of breast cancer, liver and kidney damage in rats that were subjected to a diet containing GM corn and traces of Roundup, a commonly used weedkiller containing glyphosate, both products of US biotech company Monsanto.

Similarly, Mexico has taken a stand against genetically modified corn from the United States, planning to phase out its use and that of glyphosate by 2024. These bold moves have sparked a series of discussions in the international community, raising eyebrows about the potential risks we may be unknowingly exposing ourselves to by consuming GM foods and products containing glyphosate.


Why Glyphosate Is Bad for Us

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in many herbicides, including Roundup, has been linked to a number of health issues. Here’s a list of reasons why glyphosate is harmful:

    1. Cancer: Long-term exposure to glyphosate has been linked to an increased risk of cancer, particularly non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

    1. Ecological Impact: Overuse of glyphosate can lead to ecological damage, affecting natural plant species and pollinators like bees and butterflies.

    1. Resistant Weeds: Continuous use of glyphosate can lead to the development of herbicide-resistant weeds, a major problem for agriculture.

    1. Biodiversity Threat: Glyphosate can potentially affect the biodiversity of an area, especially in places with a large number of endemic species.

Practical Tips to Avoid GMO Products

If you’re concerned about the potential risks of GMOs and glyphosate, there are several steps you can take to reduce your exposure:

    1. Buy Organic: Organic food is produced without the use of GMOs or synthetic herbicides and pesticides like glyphosate. Look for the USDA Organic label when shopping.

    1. Look for Non-GMO Project Verified Products: The Non-GMO Project offers a verification process to certify that products are made without the use of GMOs.

    1. Grow Your Own Food: If you have the space, consider growing your own fruits and vegetables. This allows you to control what goes into your food.

    1. Support Local Farmers: Local farmers’ markets often have fresh, locally grown produce that is less likely to be genetically modified.

    1. Stay Informed: Keep up-to-date with the latest research on GMOs and glyphosate. Knowledge is power!

Let’s remember that change begins with us. By choosing healthier and cleaner foods, we can help push for a food supply chain that values health over profit. Countries like Russia and Mexico have shown us that it is indeed possible to take a stand against GMOs and harmful chemicals like glyphosate.

We owe it to ourselves and our loved ones to demand better and healthier food options. So let’s start today. Let’s choose health. Let’s choose life.

Until next time,

James
