“This one tiny molecule is now gumming up the gears of life, it’s stopping, on so many levels, all normal functions of resilience, and we’re becoming a very unresilient species and damaged species, and we’re dying very quickly. ” - Zach Bush, MD
A former cancer researcher, Zach Bush had been taught that cancer was a genetic disease.
No more. Bush now believes that we’ve done something to our food and our environment that is causing cancer and other illnesses. That something, he says, is glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller.
In this “Farmer’s Footprint” video, Bush explains that glyphosate is killing the microbiome in the soil, and in humans. And because it’s water soluble, it’s destroying our waterways, especially all those connected to the Mississippi River. (Last year, a judge ruled that our lawsuit against Monsanto, for claiming that Roundup weedkiller targets a (plant) enzyme “not found in humans and pets,” could go forward. The case is still working its way through the courts).
Bush doesn’t mince words. Glyphosate is killing us, he says.
