Glyphosate Crosses Blood-Brain Barrier: Exposure Correlates With Alzheimer’s Symptoms
“In a new study, Arizona State University (ASU) and the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGEN) have explored the effects of glyphosate exposure on the brains of mice. The research demonstrates, for the first time, that glyphosate successfully crosses the blood-brain barrier and infiltrates the brain. Once there, it acts to enhance levels of a critical factor known as TNF-α.
TNF-α is a molecule with two faces. This pro-inflammatory cytokine performs vital functions in the neuroimmune system, acting to enhance the immune response and protect the brain. When levels of TNF-α are dysregulated, however, a host of diseases linked with neuroinflammation can result. Among these is Alzheimer’s disease.
Neurodegenerative illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s disease, are among the most perplexing in medical science. The underlying causes of such diseases range from genetic factors and overall cardiovascular health to dietary influences and lifestyle choices. Various environmental contaminants have also been implicated as possible players in the development or advancement of neurodegenerative disease. Among these is a broad-spectrum herbicide known as glyphosate. Glyphosate is the most used pesticide in the world.” To learn more, go to Sustainable Pulse’s full article.
We are down to the wire with the EPA and glyphosate. This past week the EPA appealed to the Supreme Court to extend the deadline for their decision on whether or not to renew or revoke the license glyphosate. Preposterous. They have had 13 years to review glyphosate.
In the meantime, people are getting sick and dying. Our pets, pollinators, babies, and neighbors are dying. Our health care costs are skyrocketing.
Now is the time to take action and contact the EPA. This is so important and we need your help. Please go to Moms Across America to Inundate the EPA with your calls, emails, mail and tweets.
This is a historic moment. This is the time in history when the EPA will decide to affect millions of lives and wildlife species. Recently, the Supreme Court rejected the EPA’s interim glyphosate approval and ordered the EPA to review available science and come to a decision by Oct 1, 2022.
We only have less than two months to communicate with the EPA and urge them to do the right thing.
When 10,000 moms called the EPA regarding Moms Across America’s findings of glyphosate in breastmilk, urine, and tap water none years ago, one of the more relatable staffers said to Zen:
“We encourage your moms to communicate with us by any means necessary.”
Let’s do that! Let’s INUNDATE the EPA! Go here to take action.
Thank you for taking action! Your children, family and grandchildren will thank you! We thank you too!
