Roundup harms beneficial gut bacteria

gut-bacteriaA study by scientists at Leipzig University found that Roundup herbicide negatively impacted the gastrointestinal bacteria of poultry tested in vitro. The researchers found that highly pathogenic bacteria resisted Roundup, whereas beneficial bacteria were moderately to highly susceptible to it. The study provides a scientific basis to farmer reports of increased gastrointestinal disease in animals fed GM Roundup Ready soy, which is tolerant to Roundup.

An interesting video shows how Danish egg producer Claus Storgaard found drastic improvements in the health and egg production of his hens after changing from GM to non-GM soy feed.

  4. My financial guy told me: If you have a property settlement agreement with a former
    spouse, setting forth an expectation that the other partner pays all or part of your children’s expenses or alimony,
    factor this into your life insurance decisions. Should your former spouse die, unless it is clearly in the estate documentation, there is no requirement that the estate will continue to
    pay those expenses. Instead, it may make sense to insure your ex spouse and list
    yourself as beneficiary, in order to protect yourself and your children.

  6. Create a favicon for your website. This tiny little graphic will make your site much more recognizable should your visitor bookmark your
    site. When looking through their lists of bookmarks, a memorable
    favicon will make you stand out. Try to design a favicon that is consistent with
    your logo and theme.

  7. You need to make sure the web design company you are hiring
    is as reliable as they claim to be. There are some people
    who will claim that they know a lot about web
    design when in actuality they know little to nothing about it.
    It is important to contact their references to find out
    if they are truly reliable and know what they are doing.
