Glyphosate and Bone Health: Unraveling the Connection

November 14, 20231 min read

Glyphosate, an herbicide designed to enhance crop yield by eliminating weeds, poses a health concern in our food system. While beneficial for business, its impact on health, specifically in relation to bone health, is troubling. This article explores the connection between glyphosate consumption and its adverse effects on the liver's ability to convert vitamin D, potentially leading to osteoporosis.

Glyphosate and Vitamin D Conversion:

  1. Crop Benefits, Health Concerns: Glyphosate boosts crop yield by eliminating competition from weeds, but its presence in our food system raises health alarms.

  2. Liver's Role in Bone Health: Glyphosate consumption hampers the liver's ability to convert vitamin D to its active form, crucial for calcium absorption and bone strength.

Vitamin D Insufficiency:

  1. Global Deficiency Statistics: The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association reports that 15% of the world's population, around 1 billion people, suffers from vitamin D deficiency.

  2. Challenging the Inevitability of Bone Deterioration: Contrary to common belief, bone deterioration with age is not inevitable; it often results from cumulative insults to the body, including years of consuming glyphosate-infused foods.


Understanding the link between glyphosate and bone health is crucial for making informed dietary choices. Subscribe to our Health Newsletter for ongoing insights into achieving optimal well-being through nutrition.
