As more and more scientific evidence regarding the dangers of Roundup, a weedkiller developed by Monsanto in the 1970s, is released, so too is public opinion beginning to shift away from a passive acceptance of the pervasive use of both Roundup and glyphosate.
In this context, a new study published in JAMA is garnering more and more attention.
The study tracked people in Southern California over the age of 50 from 1993-96 to 2014-16, periodically collecting urine samples during that time.
A team of researchers led by Paul Mills, Professor of Family Medicine and Public Health at the University of California, San Diego, discovered a 500% increase in the amount of people who tested positive for glyphosate during the course of the study.
The levels themselves had spiked by 1208%.
The level to which this study demonstrates harm to humans is unclear at this time.
However, studies conducted on animals have been extremely concerning and the evidence pointing toward a connection between glyphosate and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is solid.
“From my perspective, it’s remarkable that we’ve been ingesting a lot of this chemical over the last couple of decades,” says Mills.
