There are a lot of suspected symptoms which are caused by Roundup. Side effects can range from stomach issues, to cancer, and many more in between. Only a physician can diagnose disease, so do your own research and start a dialogue with your physician.

According to Jeffrey Smith, Author of Genetic Roulette The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Food:

""Symptoms of exposure to glyphosate include eye irritation, burning
eyes, blurred vision, skin rashes, burning or itchy skin, nausea, sore throat, asthma and difficulty breathing, headache, lethargy, nose
bleeds, and dizziness. Glyphosate and glyphosate-containing herbicides caused genetic damage in laboratory tests with human cells, as well as in tests with laboratory animals."

Though it has long been speculated by many people, glyphosate has only recently been recognized as a probable human carcinogen. This recognition was proposed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2017

1. Roundup and Gut Bacteria

Just as glyphosate blocks the shikimate pathway in
plants, it disrupts a similar pathway in humans. Though shikimic acid is unique to plants and not produced in humans, glyphosate interrupts the functions of several amino acids and enzymes. One of these
enzymes, cytochrome P450, is crucial for proper gut function. This enzyme is produced by the gut microbiome, and is absolutely necessary for helping the body detoxify from xenobiotics, and environmental toxins. Over the long term, this inhibition of the cytochrome P450 can lead to a range of diseases, most commonly perhaps is celiac disease. Gut health is one of the most important aspects to maintaining a healthy body. Recently coined the "second brain" by Dr. Michael D. Gershon's, it has been found that the gut is directly
linked to the brain, and cognitive well being.

2. Roundup Mimics Estrogen

Like many synthetic chemicals present in our modern environment, glyphosate is known to mimic estrogen. This makes glyphosate an endocrine disruptor. Other endocrine disrupters include DDT, atrazine, BPA, and many phyto-estrogens such as those found in soy.

The largest side effects causes by glyphosate as an estrogen mimicker
are seen at the higher doses a lawn care professional or groundskeeper might be expected to be exposed to. It is critical to remember that we are exposed to a wide range of endocrine disruptors already. At all costs avoid endocrine disruptors.

Estrogen mimickers are known to cause a wide range of disease in both men and women including:

Cognitive issues
Reproductive problems
Weight gain in men
Hormonal imbalances
Cancers (especially breast)

3. Glyphosate is a Xenobiotic

Glyphosate is defined as a Xenobiotic, meaning its a synthetic chemical, and is foreign to your body. Because your body is unfamiliar with the chemical it has a stress response. Stress can cause a range of responses from your immune system. One of these responses is inflammation, and chronic inflammation, along with other stress responses, can lead to cancer.

Roundup and Lymphoma

Lymphoma is a a type of cancer that begins in the cells of the bodies immune system. Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is the most commonly associated cancer linked to glyphosate. This is the side effect has lead to the nearly 9,300 lawsuits against Monsanto, including the one for Mr. Johnson in California.

Early in June of 2018,the first day in court of Dewayne Johnson was heard. Johnson, who is 43 years of age, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma after a bad rash began to cover his body. Johnson was a school
groundskeeper that regularly used Roundup.
