Improve Your Health by Avoiding Pesticides and Herbicides

Story at-a-glance -

  • “Whitewash” tells the compelling story of how corporations such as Monsanto created global pesticide dependence, leading to a massive increase in the use of glyphosate and other herbicides
  • Farmers now apply nearly 5 billion pounds (over 2 billion kilograms) of glyphosate onto farm crops each year, worldwide. Approximately 300 million pounds are applied on U.S. farmland
  • Pesticide exposure has also exponentially increased. Urine output of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, shot up by more than 1,200 percent between 1993 and 2016
  • The “gly” in glyphosate stands for glycine, a very common amino acid your body uses to make proteins. Your body can substitute glyphosate for glycine, which results in damaged frequently nonfunctional proteins
  • In March 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a research arm of the World Health Organization, reclassified glyphosate as a Class 2A "probable carcinogen"
