Another Disastrous Side Effect of Monsanto’s Notorious Roundup Pesticide Discovered

The controversial main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup is being connected to algae blooms that have fouled drinking water and killed wildlife.

Glyphosate, the controversial main ingredient in Monsanto‘s Roundup and other herbicides, is being connected to Lake Erie’s troubling algae blooms, which has fouled drinking water and suffocated and killed marine life in recent years.

Phosphorus—attributed to farm runoff carried by the Maumee River—has long been identified as a leading culprit feeding the excessive blooms in the western Lake Erie basin. Now, according to a new study from chemistry professor Christopher Spiese, a significant correlation has been established between the increased use of glyphosate to the percentage of dissolved reactive phosphorus (DRP) in the runoff.

Another Disastrous Side Effect of Monsanto’s Notorious Roundup Pesticide Discovered.

Below is a photo taken last week of the collapsing, poisoned with Glyphosate, Coral trees next to the road and the creek. The root system of the Coral tree will be holding the road edge together. Lets hope an intensive effort to replant urgently.
