Glyphosate, a common herbicide used in many agricultural and urban settings, has been linked to various health risks, including cancer, endocrine disruption, and organ toxicity. While the use of glyphosate has been controversial for some time, it is still widely used due to its effectiveness in controlling weeds.
However, recent research has shown that using soluble zeolite can help reduce the toxicity of glyphosate by adsorbing and immobilizing it, thus reducing its potential to cause harm to humans and the environment.
This is especially important when glyphosate is used in high concentrations, as is often the case in agricultural settings.
The following sections offer further insight into the reaction between glyphosate and zeolite.

Even if things appear to be changing in America, the country still trails behind other countries in understanding the underlying hazards of glyphosate. Germany declared in September 2019 that it would phase out the herbicide with the goal of outright banning it when its EU approval period ends in 2023.
Seventeen nations, including Denmark, Austria, France, the Netherlands, Malawi, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Italy, Belgium, the Czech Republic, and Bermuda, have already banned or placed restrictions on the use of the contentious weed killer.
In 2015, six Middle Eastern nations coordinated a global ban on the chemical, and more and more American towns and counties have since done the same.
Effects of Glyphosate on Health
The International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization stated in 2015 that “Glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans.”
Independent research has repeatedly linked glyphosate-containing herbicide exposure to a variety of health problems, including the following:
- Skin tumors
- Renal tubule carcinoma
- Pancreatic islet-cell adenoma
- Kidney disease
- A twofold increased risk of birth defects in the offspring of mothers who live close to fields where Round Up is sprayed
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism have both been linked to glyphosate exposure.
Additionally, it disrupts the body’s hormone signaling pathways and acts as an endocrine disruptor. It affects beneficial and required bacteria in the gut biome but has minimal effect on dangerous bacteria like salmonella, which is resistant to it.
According to studies, glyphosate may prevent you from properly absorbing antibiotics, decreasing their capacity to treat illnesses and infections.
More research indicates that the herbicide might obstruct adequate mineral absorption, resulting in mineral deficits that might cause illnesses, including chronic renal disease.
Due to their capacity to absorb heavy metals and other chemicals, zeolites have been used to remediate contaminated wastewater for a long time. The mineral is a great and affordable choice for both wastewater treatment and soil conditioning due to its open-framework structure, huge cavities, and negative magnetic charge.
Even pollutants that are generally too tiny to be cleared by other detoxification techniques can be effectively removed from the body by soluble zeolite.
Glyphosate molecules, which are referred to be “polar” because they have a positive charge on one end and a negative charge on the other, are first drawn to their magnetic charge by glyphosate.
Glyphosate is trapped inside the zeolite’s honeycomb-like structure by the same charge that makes it so good at adhering to the soil. The collective grows large enough to travel through your body as urine, feces, or sweat as more particles are pulled together.
Avoiding glyphosate entirely is not a possibility in the present day. If you continue to eat, breathe, and go outside, there is a significant possibility that you will eventually have some quantity of a harmful substance in your system.
That does not obligate it to remain there, though. Glyphosate and many other toxins can be removed from your body using soluble zeolite in a secure and efficient manner.
