Roundup (Glyphosate) and Nerve Damage. – Rainbow Grocery

“The Herbicide Glyphosate Causes Behavioral Changes and Alterations in Dopaminergic Markers in the Male Sprague-Dawley Rat.”

Glyphosate* is a powerful herbicide which has been reported to be neurotoxic. Male rats were injected with glyphosate of 50 mg, 100 mg, or 150 mg over two weeks, and the effect on dopamine neurotransmitter activity was evaluated in the rats to determine the effect on nerve activity.

Dopamine Pathways. In the brain, dopamine plays an important role in the regulation of reward and movement. As part of the reward pathway, dopamine is manufactured in nerve cell bodies located within the ventral tegmental area (VTA) and is released in the nucleus accumbens and the prefrontal cortex. Its motor functions are linked to a separate pathway, with cell bodies in the substantia nigra that manufacture and release dopamine into the striatum.

CONCLUSION: Glyphosate (as found in Roundup herbicide) alters dopamine neurotransmitter activity of the brains of rats. This is most likely to be true for humans as well. Further testing is needed to see if other neurotransmitters are altered by glyphosate.

Recipes and Tips To Fight M.S.: Dangers of High Fructose Corn Syrup


From the Recipes and Tips to Fight Multiple Sclerosis Blog on the dangers of HFCS.

We concur!

High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) is found in many processed foods and is one of the leading causes of obesity. A few food products with HFCS include soda, jellies, icecreams, popcorn, cereals with heart healthy claims (a total bummer), yoplait yogurt, and flavored drinks. Some times it is called high fructose corn syrup and the other times it is referred to as “Corn Sugar” and it probably has many other fancy names. If you cannot understand an ingredient from the ingredient list on any food products, simply avoid buying that food!
