Nearly 60% of sperm samples found to contain worrying levels of glyphosate

The global food supply is now so contaminated with toxic glyphosate (Roundup) herbicide that nearly 60 percent of men have contaminated sperm.

Researchers from France published a study in the journal Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety revealing that three out of five sperm samples collected from a French infertility clinic showed high levels of glyphosate, the world’s most commonly used weedkiller.

“The new research also found evidence of impacts on DNA and a correlation between glyphosate levels and oxidative stress on seminal plasma, suggesting significant impacts on fertility and reproductive health,” reported The Guardian (United Kingdom) about the paper.

“Environmental exposure to endocrine disruptors, such as pesticides, could contribute to a decline of human fertility.”

Avoid glyphosate at all costs

The research was undertaken to look for answers as to why global fertility rates are in freefall. Chemicals in general are a known cause, but glyphosate, we now know, is one of the primary drivers.

Glyphosate is used both commercially in factory farming and residentially in people’s yards. It kills weeds, but the stuff is also killing the human race.

Research from 2023 that was conducted by the United States government found that glyphosate is genotoxic. It is especially problematic for farmers who use it on their crops.

The extreme toxicity of glyphosate is at the heart of numerous ongoing legal battles that seek to hold Bayer, glyphosate’s newest owner – glyphosate was originally developed by Monsanto – accountable.

This past December, a team of top U.S. public health advocacy groups petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ban glyphosate. Its defenders say the chemical product is just fine, though.

About a dozen countries have banned glyphosate of their own accord, but of course the U.S. is not one of them.

Compared to glyphosate contamination of the blood, the French researchers found that concentrations of glyphosate in men’s sperm is four times higher, which they described as “worrying.”

“We found GLY (glyphosate) concentrations four times higher in sperm than in blood, corresponding probably to an hemato-testicular barrier alteration,” the researchers further wrote in their paper.

“We detected a strong positive correlation between OSin lipids and DNA and GLY’s amount in blood and sperm. Meanwhile, we can’t exclude the toxicity of the co- formulants of GBHs or other pesticides associated as well.”

In addition to glyphosate, hundreds of millions of people around the world are also contaminated with microplastics. Other newly released research found that in all human testes analyzed, microplastics were present, suggesting that everyone has these poisons hiding at varying concentrations within their bodies.

“Organic is always best,” wrote someone on X about one practical way to minimize exposure to glyphosate in food. “When in doubt, always go organic.”

“This is probably the reason why we have such big infertility problems,” wrote another. “The food we eat is covered in pesticides, making our sperm toxic and inhabitable [sic]. If you want to make babies, make sure you are getting the highest quality food.”

“I wonder if it can cause abnormalities during the conception,” said another. “I can imagine that even slightest problems then would be cumulative.”
