“Satusteam™ and Weedtechnics: Pioneering a Credible Solution”

 

Introduction

 

Recent research conducted by top US government scientists has revealed alarming links between glyphosate, a widely used weedkiller chemical, and the development of cancer biomarkers and oxidative stress in the human body. This study, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, has sparked renewed concerns about the safety of glyphosate, the primary ingredient in herbicides like Monsanto’s Roundup.

 

Glyphosate and Its Prevalence

 

Glyphosate is one of the most extensively used herbicides in history, both in the United States and globally. It has been in use for over four decades, with assurances from manufacturers that it poses no threat to human health. However, a recent study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has challenged these claims.

 

The Study’s Findings

 

The NIH and CDC study found that individuals exposed to glyphosate, including both farmers and non-farmers, had elevated levels of the chemical in their urine. More significantly, these high levels of glyphosate were associated with oxidative stress, a condition known to cause DNA damage and considered a key characteristic of carcinogens. The study’s authors concluded that their findings contribute to the mounting evidence linking glyphosate exposure to oxidative stress and potentially to hematologic cancers such as lymphoma, myeloma, and leukemia.

 

The Regulatory Implications

 

This study has raised questions about the safety of glyphosate just as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and European regulators are completing updated assessments of its safety. Health advocates are advocating for stricter regulations and labeling requirements for glyphosate-based products.

 

The EPA has historically considered glyphosate as “not likely” to be carcinogenic, but a federal appellate court invalidated this assessment, citing issues with scientific guidelines and reasoning. As a result, the EPA is reevaluating its stance on glyphosate’s safety.
