Fish Oil by Eating a Fish vs. Fish Oil supplements/pills in a Jar

Hundreds of research studies have been conducted over the past 30 years and they’ve all concluded that fish oil is good for you.

toxicity-of-glyphosate-roundup-Monsanto-health

Monsanto’s Roundup is more toxic than what the majority believe

More and more studies are revealing compelling evidence on the toxicity of Monsanto’s best selling weed-killer Roundup. In 2004, a study published in the Journal of Pesticide Reform, showed toxicity of “glyphosate” (active ingredient in Roundup) and how it’s designed to deprive plants from essential nutrients, kill useful insects and microorganisms and pollute the earth. However, as toxic as glyphosate is, the only problem with Roundup isn’t only glyphosate but the fact that Roundup has many other “insert” ingredients that are not properly labeled. Studies show that these insert ingredients increase the toxicity and harmful side effects of glyphosate .... toxicity-of-glyphosate-roundup-Monsanto-health
