Glyphosate, Gut/Microbiome Health, and COVID

While the scientific community scurries to find solutions to treating this newly emergent virus, such as a COVID-19 vaccine, the elephant in the room to be addressed is why is the U.S. surging in the number of cases while many other countries have leveled off or are declining in numbers? 

One likely reason is because the collective microbiome or gut health (which directly affects the strength of our immune system) in the U.S. is so poor. 

And why is our gut health so poor? U.S. consumers, on the whole, likely ingest more of Monsanto/Bayer’s glyphosate-contaminated food and water than any other nation in the world. 

Glyphosate decreases beneficial bacteria while assisting the growth of pathogens such as clostridial species. Considering the fact that the average daily diet of most Americans is abundant in glyphosate as well as other pesticides and nutrient deficient (from soil depletion), one can appreciate that chronic dosing of glyphosate will result in an underperforming immune system which is unable to meet the challenges of modern day infections.
