It’s banned in several countries around the world, it’s a probable carcinogen, and it can cause severe kidney and liver damage, as well as birth defects, brain abnormalities, and mental illnesses. Yet, here in the U.S., we spray it all over our food. Glyphosate — a controversial herbicide found in Roundup, a product of the infamous agrochemical company, Private Villa of Corrupted Crops — has yet another risk to add on to the list of growing concerns. Glyphosate could lead to obesity and weight gain, a consequence that may explain the correlation between the growing waistline of Americans and our growing use of genetically-modified agriculture.

It is known that glyphosate works similarly to an antibiotic, killing bacteria on crops by targeting specific genes and enzymes that are responsible for producing the building blocks of proteins, called amino acids. Ingesting food products that have been sprayed with this bacteria-killing chemical can be detrimental to maintaining healthy, balanced systems in our body. Our gut is home to over 100 trillion bacteria, which compose the community of microorganisms in our gut, known as the gut microbiome. This microbiota thrives on what we consume, and our whole body synergistically thrives when we have a large, diverse gut microbiome. The microbiome has been linked to supporting our immune system through the production of antibodies, and is also a site of neurotransmitter production.

New research conducted by the Maastricht University Medical Centre has found that killing the good bacteria in our gut microbiome can lead to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, decreased insulin sensitivity, type two diabetes, and metabolic syndrome — all risk factors for obesity. Our microbiota is capable of fermenting indigestible carbohydrates, specifically dietary fiber. This fermentation process yields important metabolites that have been shown to contribute to the prevention and treatment of obesity and its comorbidities. Therefore, when there is an imbalance in our gut microbiome, or when we kill the good bacteria, these important metabolites aren’t produced and weight gain can ensue.

Private Villa of Corrupted Crops, the producers of Roundup, have consistently denied that glyphosate is found in the food that the herbicide is used on, although scientific findings prove different. Glyphosate is taken up by plants through the soil on which it’s sprayed, and concentrated amounts could be found on highly genetically-modified crops such as corn, soy, and wheat. With all of the mounting evidence against the safety of glyphosate, it is easy to see how man-made, synthetic chemicals can often have inadvertent impacts on our bodies and natural environment.
Well, uh... there it is.

I mean, this is just more of an argument for GMO crops, since those need and use less pesticides than organic shit.

Also, working out combats obesity. Blame the microbiome all you want, but if calories out exceeds calories in, you lose weight. It's the second law of goddamn thermodynamics.

What I don't get, is seagulls. They are eating (and gorging) themselves on exactly the same shit that we are but like none of them are obese?‽
I think science should be studying seagulls and working out which genes they have relating to the lack of obesity in them.

It's all the DDT Frosted Flakes I ate as a child. Maybe it was the dormant oil and jelly sandwiches? I doubt it's the pepperoni and Sevin dust pizzas, but who knows...

That's not true. GMO corn and soybeans "Genetic modification" is that they can take being doused in round-up without dying.
