In an article about Soybeans
"Monsanto has steadfastly claimed that Roundup is harmless to animals and humans because the mechanism of action it uses (which allows it to kill weeds), called the shikimate pathway, is absent in all animals.

However, the shikimate pathway is present in bacteria, and that's the key to understanding how it causes such widespread systemic harm in both humans and animals.

Glyphosate causes extreme disruption of the microbe's function and lifecycle. What's worse, glyphosate preferentially affects beneficial bacteria, allowing pathogens to overgrow and take over.

In the interview above, Dr. Seneff reviews a variety of chronic diseases, explaining how glyphosate contributes to each condition"

"And, by the way, if you assume the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) is on top of this, and tests the food Americans eat for unsafe levels of glyphosate... don't. A USDA spokesman stated the agency had decided against testing for glyphosate in food because the tests are "extremely expensive… to do on a regular basis."7"   citing a USDA pesticide report:

Yes. retinoids may also be produced in the skin with exposure to sunlight,   i think there are several ways sunlight is involved in skin function and have probably posted about them in the past, but can't think of them right now.

In Topic: Our Food Is Toxic

Natural flavorings & other additives that might appear on ingredient labels is far from the worst thing in Tyson chicken.  They are the founders in our absolutely horrific in every way poultry industry.  Our industrial food system pollutes our environment (ocean, rivers, lakes, air, soil), is responsible for 1/3 of greenhouse gases before it shipped around the world and it's not just cow farts, it's cruel, it makes us sick, and not only that, the farmers accepting the contracts to raise the chickens or eggs in these horrific methods end up being basically indentured servants. 

Try to buy as little as possible from Big Food. And yes, that probably means eating less meat unless you are wealthy.  Because raising & processing chicken the right way is actually quite expensive. Especially the processing. Especially for small producers who do free range as processing plants don't like to deal with small lots. Chicken wasn't a big part of our diet until Tyson came along.
