Coincidence? Monsanto patented glyphosate as an “antibiotic” drug, claiming weed killer is medicine


In news you'd only believe from Monsanto, the agrochemical giant has actually claimed glyphosate is a medicine - despite all the evidence that it's a carcinogen.



Back in 2003, Monsanto filed patents to claim gyphosate as an antibiotic. That patent was granted in 2010.

In particular, Monsanto patented the combination of glyphosate and polyvalent anion oxalic acid as a method for preventing and treating pathogenic infections like malaria. As the patent explains, parasites from the phylum of Apicomplexa are often responsible for diseases in humans and other animals — and glyphosate is capable of inhibiting the growth of these parasites.

Given the Bayer-Monsanto merger, this only opens up more questions about just how evil Monsanto is willing to be for the sake of profit. In fact, it could be asked whether glyphosate may actually be contributing to the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria?

A new study says it just might be.

Scientists from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand have piloted new research that shows glyphosate is not just an herbicide, but a potential vector for antibiotic-resistant disease.

The study is the first of its kind. Professor Jack Heinemann, from the university, says that while herbicides may be tested for their ability to kill bacteria, they are not tested for what other effects they may have on microbes.

Later research conducted at Massey University yielded the same results as that done by the University of Canterbury.

What their research shows is that glyphosate residue may destroy natural resistance in the gut and contribute to the rise of antibiotic resistance.

It seems that the more we learn about glyphosate, the more dangerous it becomes.
