Glyphosate Girl, Kelly Ryerson – How to protect yourself from agrotoxins in food

“Glyphosate does not wash off of food. It is a systemic herbicide absorbed and transported through the plant. Then we eat it.” -Kelly Ryerson

Kelly Ryerson is an environmental health writer, filmmaker, public health advocate, and founder of

After healing her own chronic health issues with a gluten-free and organic diet, Kelly discovered that toxins and chemicals like glyphosate in Roundup are contributors to many chronic diseases in the U.S.

Kelly’s mission is to educate the public on how our food system, soil, and the health of millions of humans have been affected by the use of toxic pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides.

In this interview, we discuss the harms of glyphosate, atrazine, GMOs, and more. How they damage our bodies and simple ways you can reduce your exposure and minimize the harmful effects.

I’m thankful for the work that Kelly is doing to bring awareness of the harms of agrotoxins to the public and her mission to influence farmers, food producers, and policy-makers in our country. Enjoy!
