Glyphosate is the active ingredient of many widely used, broad-spectrum herbicides and is commonly applied as a broadleaf weedicide in commercial agriculture. Created by Monsanto in 1970 and marketed from 1974 as “Roundup”, glyphosate has been used extensively across the world ever since. Although the USA remains its biggest consumer, the use of glyphosate has also increased in other countries. As such, from 1999 to 2010 glyphosate use in Germany increased by 100%, now being sprayed on nearly 40% of German farmland each year. Due to such extensive use, the genetically modified crop plants called “Roundup Ready” were created, which are resistant to glyphosate. This further increases the use of this herbicide. The majority of soybean, cotton and corn crops grown in the USA today are of this Roundup Ready variety, which is heavily exposed to glyphosate.

Abstract: Amiodarone (Amio), a potent anti-arrhythmic drug, is associated with life-threatening pulmonary toxicity involving fibroses and inflammation. A unique nutrient mixture (NM)
consisting of lysine, proline, ascorbic acid, N-acetyl cysteine and green tea extract has previously been shown to exhibit a broad spectrum of pharmacological, therapeutic, cardiovascular and chemopreventive properties.…

Abstract: Acetaminophen (APAP) overdose is often fatal, leading fulminant hepatic and renal tubular necrosis, in humans and animals. We studied the effect of a nutrient mixture (NM) containing, among other nutrients, lysine, proline, ascorbic acid, N-acetyl cysteine, and green tea extract, which has previously been demonstrated to exhibit a broad spectrum of therapeutic properties on APAP-induced hepatic and renal damage in ICR (Imprinting Control Region) mice.…
