CT Water Testing for Glyphosate (Round-up)

Glyphosate is the world’s most widely used herbicide and the primary toxic chemical Roundup™ which is utilized by homeowners, municipalities, and farmers throughout Connecticut to prevent the growth of weeds and grasses. Studies have linked glyphosate exposure to chronic conditions and various types of cancer, such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma, renal tubule carcinoma, pancreatic islet-cell adenoma, and skin tumors. Glyphosate is also known to disrupt the balance of gut bacteria, reducing the ratio of beneficial to harmful bacteria.

Water Testing Connecticut for Glyphosate (Roundup)

There is a strong correlation between glyphosate usage and several chronic illnesses. While correlations do not necessarily imply causation, these findings do raise concerns about the widespread use of a chemical that affects all life on earth.

In Connnecticut, studies have found high correlations between glyphosate exposure and diseases and conditions like:

  • Acute kidney failure
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Autism
  • Cancers such as thyroid, liver, bladder, pancreas, kidney, and myeloid leukemia
  • Diabetes Disorders of lipoprotein metabolism
  • End-stage renal disease
  • Hypertension
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Intestinal infections
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Obesity
  • Parkinson’s
  • Senile dementia
  • Stroke

Treatment of glyphosate toxicity is usually determined by discovering the route of introduction and avoiding future exposure to it. Eating non-GMO (genetically modified organism) foods and drinking reverse osmosis water are two of the best ways to avoid glyphosate.
