Over the past 25 years we have seen two things rise together – the use of Roundup in our food supply and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The connection between glyphosate, Roundup’s main ingredient, and liver disease in animals was already well known. A new study, the first of its kind, has confirmed that there is also a link between Roundup and liver disease in humans.
The study was conducted by a team of researchers at UC San Diego, led by Paul J. Mills, Ph.D. It was published on May 14, 2019 in the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology. The team looked at urine samples from patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and a group of people who do not have the disease. They found higher levels of glyphosate residue in the urine of people with the liver disease.
NASH is the most severe form of NAFLD.
Roundup Is in Your Food
Unless you have managed to switch to an all organic non-GMO diet, you’re probably eating Roundup every day. Most Americans are. Testing had found glyphosate residue in most foods. It’s found in the more obvious culprits, such as cereal, corn and granola bars, but also in baby formula and in foods consumers tend to think of as “healthier” including honey and fruit juice.
