Is a perfectly manicured lawn more important to you than your health? That is the question!
In recent decade, more research and data have come forward to help us to realize the danger of glyphosate weed killer or herbicides while manufacturer of the herbicide had been challenged with more than 13,000 U.S. lawsuits and lost billions of dollars in legal judgement related to suspected risks of the glyphosate herbicide products. Check out what the Detox Learning Center had to say about the harms glyphosate can do to your health, summarized below:
- Rob you of minerals
- Could damage your liver (through inhibiting ability to make detox enzymes & developing scarring and unwanted fat deposits in liver)
- May lead to gut issues
- May kill off your good bacteria and increase risk of leaky gut
- Could damage your kidneys (increased heavy metal toxicity, overgrowth of environmental pathogens, reduction in antioxidants, decrease in vitamin D activity
- Could increase your risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma by up to 41%
- Could increase health risk in: breast, intestines, kidneys, pancreas, skin, stomach, thyroid gland
- Glyphosate-based herbicide can cause DNA damage in less than 20 minutes
- May contribute to brain and nervous system issues (increased anxiety, Parkinson, areas in the world where sugar beets are grown have the highest rates of MS in the world because sugar beets are highly sprayed with glyphosate.)
- Could disrupt mitochondrial function (may inhibit part of the energy-making process therefore less ATP or energy for you; glyphosate herbicides may also increase the production of damaging free radicals in your mitochondria, partly due to glyphosate’s interference with manganese, and make your mitochondria more vulnerable to injury.)
- May affect your heart and arteries (poisoning accident involving glyphosate herbicide could cause electrical abnormalities leading to arrhythmia (irregular heart beat) or atherosclerosis or artery stiffening)
- Could alter fertility and healthy development (reduce fertility by reducing ability of sperm to swim upstream to fertilize an egg, and alter the healthy development of babies)
- May cause prion diseases (example such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is a brain disease marked by symptoms similar to dementia as well difficulty in walking and talking (prions bind copper in the body and this helps to prevent prions from causing disease. But glyphosate is especially good at binding copper. So the herbicide could tie up copper, leaving one without the protection from prion disease. The only other mineral that binds the prion is manganese. But glyphosate oxidizes manganese, making it toxic. When prions bind the toxic manganese, it may trigger more proteins to misfold in one’s brain. The mineral may also cause prions to clump and this is toxic to one’s brain.
Glyphosate herbicides are often used to produce: soybeans, corn, cotton (such as cottonseed oil), wheat, alfalfa (for livestock feed), sorghum, barley, sugar beets, canola oil, citrus fruits.

Dr. Stephanie Seneff discusses one of the most important health issues of our time – glyphosate toxicity. It’s in most non-organic foods and is ruining your health, causing autism, gut dysbiosis, problems detoxing and even cancer. Glyphosate weed killer or glyphosate herbicide is much more common than you think. Is glyphosate 41 safe? And what do you do when you’ve been exposed to too much glyphosate? How do you actually get rid of it (and prevent it from happening again)? Tune in to hear all about: – How glyphosate causes chronic fatigue, autism, dementia, gut -dysbiosis, cancer and more – Glyphosate causes mineral deficiencies and oxalates – Glyphosates contributes to sulfur sensitivity – How glyphosate makes vaccines more toxic – How to detox glyphosate, in the video published on Aug 25, 2016, “Glyphosate and How to Detox It with Dr. Stephanie Seneff“, below:

In the video published on Oct 9, 2018, “The secret tactics Monsanto used to protect Roundup, its star product| Four Corners“
Monsanto had been sold to a German company by the name “Bayer”. Since the patent for glyphosate herbicide has expired, there are many companies from different parts of the world now selling glyphosate herbicides, under different names beside Roundup. Hundreds of millions of pounds of glyphosate, a “probable human carcinogen,” are used on farmland across America every year. We are exposed to this toxic chemical in our food, air, and water every day. Glyphosate herbicide is now banned in many countries, many states in U.S., and many counties in Florida. Check to see if your community has banned the use of glyphosate herbicide.

Consider Regenerative Farming for it is much healthier for every one and it allows farmers to make $400/acre instead of $40 now. The mission of https://farmersfootprint.us/ is to reclaim 5 million acres of land. Regenerative agriculture would lead to healthy soil, healthy bodies-minds, while generating more profits for farmers too. Check it out. It could be the solution!
Consider using alternative (alternative to Roundup or glyphosate herbicide) methods , such as homemade weed killer (vinegar+salt+water) to kill off weeds on your driveway or lawn.
Best to use natural homemade weed control because it actually WORKS! See how to make it yourself and get rid of weeds in your yard and lawn. Watch the video to understand the benefits and things to be aware of when using this highly effective mix. Always follow the label on any product shown in the video and use proper protective equipment and handling according to the manufacturer, in the video published on July 25, 2019, “Best Homemade Organic Weed Control – Natural & Safe Vinegar Boosted“, below:
Be sure to periodically detox your body of glyphosate to protect your health.
This film series explores scientific findings from Dr. Zach Bush and soil health expert Dr. Allen Williams of Soil Health Consultants, LLC that identify the root cause of the current chronic disease epidemic and its connection to chemically dependent agricultural practices. This film features the trials, learnings and victories of the four generation Breitkreutz family from Stoney Creek Farm transitioning from conventional farming to regenerative agriculture in Redwood Falls, Minnesota. Using conventional methods they saw their soils degrade and their input costs rise every year. Transitioning to regenerative practices has helped their row cropping operation and significantly reduced their input cost for their cattle. This film tells the story of how they did it, in the video published on Dec 31, 2020, “Farmer’s Footprint: Regeneration – The Beginning (Full Film)“, below:
As more people are moving to Florida, more houses have been built. Windermere Sun would like to convince as many new and old Florida residents to use harmless homemade weed killers (vinegar+salt+water as indicated in the earlier video above in “Best Homemade Organic Weed Control – Natural & Safe Vinegar Boosted” video) rather than glyphosate herbicides on their lawn or driveway. Be sure not to indiscriminately spray herbicides. Be sure to remind your landscapers not to use Roundup or glyphosate herbicide because it is harmful to any one using it or exposed to it. Besides all potential negative effects on our health, glyphosate herbicides’ negative impact on fertility rate and children’s development are particularly alarming because this may present problem for survival of human species in the future. We all need to care and try to avoid the use and spread of glyphosate herbicides for it is now every where, in our food as well as in our water and air. We would like to convince all Florida counties to review and compare data of rate of auto accidents, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Parkinson, heart disease, thyroid disease, prion diseases, etc. between counties that have banned vs. those that have not yet banned the use of glyphosate herbicides. We’d also like to ask farmers to consider regenerative farming, especially given that higher rate of return or profit level per acre is associated with regenerative farming these days. Finally, it is a good idea to try to consume organic food, take probiotics, eat more fermented food such as sauerkraut and yogurt, and regularly detox our body of glyphosate herbicides (Talk to your doctor, osteopath, acupuncturist, chiropractor, nutritionists, etc. about this and view videos above) to avoid non-Hodgkin lymphoma, various cancers, heart disease, thyroid disease, etc.
Some of our readers did not think that glyphosate herbicide or Roundup is being used on the lawn. But the truth of the matter is that there are many landscapers using Roundup or glyphosate weed killer on edging or in the yard or in conservation area because their clients complaint about weeds at the border/edge or wanting more orderly look in the conservation area. So Windermere Sun encourages every one to either tolerate a bit of weed at the edge or convince your landscapers to try vinegar+salt+water first to avoid harm to the landscapers as well as to the property owners (after all, most of the health damages occurs in those who handle glyphosate herbicide or Roundup.). In the long run, being glyphosate-free is a much healthier way to maintain our land’s health as well as our physical health.
Yes, glyphosate herbicide is largely used in agriculture for many reasons. Windermere Sun simply wants to call attention to the fact that regenerative farming/agriculture is much more profitable per acre these days and worth considering.
