Glyphosate – Deadly to Weeds & YOU!

September 17th, 2019

You may have seen the more than 13,000 lawsuits against Bayer who acquired Monsanto, the company that created Roundup. New research states those exposed to Glyphosate raise their risk of cancer by a monumental 41%.

Glyphosate is an herbicide that remains the world’s most well known and common weed killer. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is a widely used and harmful herbicide used on crops and other plants to kill weeds. 

Glyphosate residue can be found in your food supply — on produce, in meat, and in packaged foods. Glyphosate is the world’s most widely produced herbicide and is the primary toxic chemical in Roundup, as well as in many other herbicides. In addition, it is a broad-spectrum herbicide that is used in more than 700 different products from agriculture and forestry to home use. Glyphosate was introduced in the 1970s to kill weeds by targeting the enzymes that produce the amino acids tyrosine, tryptophan, and phenylalanine. The enzymes of many bacteria are also susceptible to inhibition by this chemical, thus altering the flora of many animals. 

Following are Side Effects of Roundup

  • ADHD
  • Alzheimer’s

August 29th, 2019

Over 100 million Americans have high blood pressure, and it causes approximately 1,000 deaths per day. The threat is real. High blood pressure can lead to heart attack, strokes and even kidney failure. Without proper education, most Americans start taking medications before ever trying other options. Even with medications, there are long term risks. Many patients on medications often times see their blood pressure fluctuating from high to regular, which is another sign the medication may not be working properly.

Mother’s Day Self-Care

May 11th, 2019

The past week I have had multiple memories of past Mother’s Day celebrations pop up in my Facebook Memories.  I have been acutely aware of those who no longer have a mother on this earth to celebrate with, those who have not had the privilege of being a mother, those who desperately want to be mother’s and are physically unable to, and those who may not have had the ideal mother.  And yet, we all exist because we had a mother. It is one of those rare uniting things across all cultures, languages, continents.
