Glysophate (Roundup) and Cardiovascular Disease

By Tucson Functional Medicine on November 29, 2021 0 Comments

Glyphosate is a worldwide commonly used herbicide and is the primary toxic chemical in Roundup™, as well as in many other herbicides.

A growing number of clinical studies have discovered glyphosate exposure to be a cause of many chronic health problems, including heart disease.

It can enter the body by being directly absorbed through the skin, eating foods treated with glyphosate, or drinking water contaminated with glyphosate.

Some studies have shown cardiac electrophysiological changes associated with glyphosate.

Glyphosate exposure has been implicated as the potential cause of diffuse electrophysiological depolarization and repolarization conduction abnormalities, including prolonged QTc, intraventricular block, and AV conduction delay. In addition, these changes can lead to the development of life-threatening arrhythmias.

Some studies suggest that glyphosate has atherogenic potential, regardless of the concentration and route of exposure. Therefore, you should consider getting tested, if you are suffering from cardiovascular challenges, for glyphosate exposure.


There are several things you can do to minimize — and even eliminate — glyphosate contamination.

The most effective way to reduce glyphosate exposure is to avoid living in areas where glyphosate is applied and to avoid eating GMO foods or animal products such as milk or meat for which GMO foods were used to feed the animals.

The following should also be included in your glysophate detox protocol:

  1. Citrus pectin
  2. Alginates (purified from kelp)
  3. Glycine
  4. Gingko Biloba
  5. Organic Iceland kelp
  6. Probiotics and prebiotics
  7. Infrared sauna






Here is another blog that I did on how roundup (Glyphosate) relates with non-hodgkins lymphoma. Just click the picture below and read that blog article.
