Recent Research has proven that there are two compounds that are being used for cultivating organic soybeans, vegetables and fruits around the worlds that kill kidneys cells directly.
According to a new study that has been published by the Journal of Applied Toxicology, the two pesticides (Roundup and Bacillus Thuringiensis) that are very toxic and they both can directly damage the kidneys cells. Most people probably do not know what Roundup and Bacillus Thuringiensis (Bt) are. Nevertheless, it has become of great importance to realize about this issue. Roundup is Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide which is based on glyphosate. Roundup is currently the most widely sold and used herbicide in the world. Bt is a biopesticide. It means that it is a pesticide that is developed from bacterial species that exist naturally in the wild and other toxic organic matter.
The study that was led by Gilles-Eric Séralini from the University of Caen in France first evaluated the effect of Bt on kidneys cells. The study thrown that a 200-time weaker sample of the amount of Roundup that is used from crops killed half of all kidneys cells. Despite being the only study that has tested and proven the effect of Bt and Roundup on human kidneys cells, the has been a research that proved that they cause hepatorenal on rats which is a kind of kidneys damage that almost in all case leads to complete kidneys failure.
Why isn’t Their Toxicity to Kidneys Cells a Big Surprise?
Scientists have always believed in the Toxicity of Bt and Roundup. This is because of the development of mutated insects as well as environmental damage. Bt is said to be extremely lethal to insect larvae and caterpillars and it can cause severe damage to mammals and its pure form.
The toxicity of Bt is comparable with the toxicity of Roundup. Roundup is known to have contaminated groundwater which led the Denmark Government to completely ban its use. Furthermore, similar studies have proved that Roundup lethality extends to fish, frogs, butterflies and other aquatic life. Two other studies have found that Roundup negatively affect human hormones and can lead to birth defects in humans. The damage and lethality that these two substances possess cannot be overlooked and it is no surprise to find out that they are actually harmful for human kidneys.
How This Affects Fruits and Vegetables You Eat
Monsanto is currently encouraging the use of genetically modified organisms (GMO) crops. These GMO crops are created with a combination of both Bt and Roundup. That the great majority of genetically modified organism crops worldwide are made with Roundup and Bt combined and most of mass produced potatoes, corn, tomatoes, strawberries, cantaloupes, are genetically modified is something that cannot be denied. It makes this a big issue since most junk foods, fast foods, and processed foods have at least one ingredient that has been grown with these toxic elements meaning that avoiding eating massed produced fruits and vegetables will not completely help you avoid them. The only way to avoid eating his toxins is eating locally grown fruits and vegetables and avoiding eating junk and fast foods as much as you can.
