NON-ALCOHOLIC LIVER DISEASE
Seneff: "Why am I not surprised?"
UCSD STUDY: MONSANTO ROUNDUP LINKED TO LIVER DISEASE

IS THIS THE NEW WAVE OF ROUNDUP LAWSUITS?
San Diego, CAA new study, conducted by researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine, suggests an association between glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s weed killer Roundup, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in human beings.
The pee test said liver disease. It also suggested Roundup.
These findings were consistent with an earlier rat study at King’s College in London. That study focused on the molecular composition of female rats’ livers after they were fed an extremely low dose of Roundup weed killer for more than two years. The glyphosate dose from the Roundup-given rats was thousands of times below the level permitted by regulators all over the world. Animals in the study suffered from a form of liver disease similar to that found in the more recent human study. The accumulating evidence is worrying, despite Monsanto’s continued insistence on the safety of its flagship product.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease can lead to increased risk of more serious liver diseases like cirrhosis and an increased risk of diabetes, heart attacks and strokes. In the United States, it is the most common form of chronic liver disease, affecting an estimated 80 to 100 million people. Symptoms may include an enlarged liver, fatigue, pain, abdominal swelling and enlarged breasts in men. The condition is increasingly common around the world, especially in Western nations.
It’s in the Weeds: Herbicide Linked to Human Liver Disease
Exposure to glyphosate, the primary ingredient in the popular weed killer Roundup, correlates to more severe cases of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease May 14, 2019 | Debra Kamin
Glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s popular weed killer Roundup, has been linked to liver disease in animal models. In a new study, the first of its kind, researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine report an association between the herbicide and negative effects upon the human liver.
In a study published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology , a team led by Paul J. Mills, PhD, professor and chief in the Department of Family Medicine and Public Health at UC San Diego School of Medicine, examined...
