Herbicide Resistant Crops Pose Nutrient Deficient Animals

Are we shooting ourselves in the foot with a silver bullet? Minimum tillage practices
have forced extensive applications of Glyphosate (Roundup). Increase of herbicide
resistant plants through genetically modified engineering have exhausted nutrient
availability and increased crop diseases.

Glyphosate has changed the face of crop production and researchers are becoming aware
of potential serious problems.

Glyphosate 101 simply demonstrates the sole purpose as weed control.
Dr. Don Huber, a retired plant pathologist from the University of Purdue states, "to
understand why glyphosate impacts micronutrients and how it can have secondary effect
on crops, you need to look first at how it does its job".

Glyphosate is a phloem mobile chemical, meaning it moves downward in conducting
tissues in the leaves, stems and roots until it is exuded into soil and groundwater.
Meristermatic tissues in plants are the areas of high physiological activity requiring high
availability of essential nutrients for cell division and growth.

Glyphosate is a strong broad spectrum chelate, meaning it shuts down the ability to
utilize micronutrients necessary for enzyme function and defend against disease. Nothing
in a glyphosate plant operates on Glyphosate itself. It simply chelates with a host of
elements in plants immobilizing them in a non selective mode.

Glyphosate is non biodegradable, accumulating in soils for long periods of time.
Glyphosate has negative impact on nutrient availability, disease resistant and other
physiological functions for life of the plant. Genetically modified engineering is an alternative enzyme inserted that is blocked by
glyphosate in the meristematic tissues.

Nutrient Availability. Nutrient values in feedstuffs are solely dependant on the
inventory and availability of soil nutrient levels which are the regulators, inhibitors on
activators of every physiological process in the plant. This determines the nutrient values
of feedstuffs for animals Health Concerns. By introducing such an intense mineral chelator through accumulation in feeds, forages and foods and exudation into groundwater’s poses a significant health concern for humans and animals.

Chelation immobilization of elements creates an unequally yoked field of energy in the
body. This brings up the question of the role these elements play in the body. Calcium
(bones) Fe (blood) Mn Zn (liver and kidneys) Cu Mg (brain). 

Plant Energy

Glyphosate reduces photosynthesis or carbon dioxide fixation meaning lowered energy to the plant. Low energy increases plant disease. Invading organisms and pests can then deplete nutrient availability.

Antimicrobial effect. Being a strong broad spectrum chelator, glyphosate becomes a
potent antimicrobial agent effecting the functions of numerous plant enzymes by
inhibiting enzymes, a plant becomes highly susceptible to soil borne pathogens such as
fusarium, phythium phytophthora, rizoctonia and others that can be carried into the food

This causes deficiencies and relates to an unequally yoked field of energy to the body.
“You can trace every disease and every infection to an unequally yoked of field energy”.
Crops and Livestock Jeopardized. Crop production and the livestock industry could
become jeopardized sooner than later without making any attempt to use glyphosate in a
more judicious manner and delay its broad-spectrum chelation mode of essential
