Glyphosate is an herbicide applied to leaves of grasses and broad-leaf plants all over the United States. The herbicide’s main purpose is to kill weeds, however, its presence in nature is introducing a new epidemic of toxicity to animals, as well as humans. The herbicide applied directly onto our fruits and vegetables can spread to plants and even our own drinking water. This chemical has been found to be linked to chronic diseases such as cancer, autism, facial deformities, hypothyroidism, hormone imbalances, etc. Even the most basic tabletop water filters can help to reduce exposure to glyphosate.
Recent studies have found that glyphosate has been inducing brain abnormalities that affect facial development, causing faces to shrink. It is important to recognize the adversity that accompanies this toxicity in our bodies, as it worsens into respiratory complications that may obstruct the pathways of our breathing. Underdevelopment of the upper jaw can further develop into nasopharyngeal airway restriction, sleep apnea and snoring. If you or someone you know has problems with breathing or is experiencing sleep disturbances, we can help. Call us at 310-205-0900 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Dayan.
