Monsanto’s roundup is one of the most widely applied herbicides in agriculture, it also probably causes cancer, according to the World Health Organization. Studies on occupational exposure to Roundup show that it is linked with the development of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma There is also convincing evidence that it causes cancer in laboratory animals. Thankfully, there is a way to protect yourself from Roundup residues: Soaking your produce in alkaline water neutralizes acidic herbicides like glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup.
Why alkaline water can detoxify your produce, and plain water can’t
Herbicides and pesticides used in farming are acidic. Alkaline water’s higher pH their acidity, plain water doesn’t. In fact, farmers who use these chemicals have to compensate for the pH of their water if it is alkaline by bringing the pH of the water down.
Glyphosate is no exception, as used on crops, it’s an acidic herbicide. Because of that, any glyphosate residues on produce will be neutralized if that produce is soaked in alkaline water.
Monsanto’s Roundup a Probable Carcinogen: WHO
The World Health Organization declared glyphosate a probable carcinogen based on definitive animal studies, and evidence that glyphosate exposure among agricultural workers may be linked to development of non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Monsanto pushed back almost immediately, questioning WHO’s findings.
The facts: Glyphosate has been detected in food, water, and in the air after it has been sprayed. However, it’s use is very limited outside of agricultural areas where it is used on farms, so people living in agricultural areas face the greatest risk of exposure.
If you don’t live in an agricultural area, your greatest risk for exposure comes from herbicide residues on your fruits and vegetables. These residues can be neutralized and safely rinsed away using alkaline water.
Some GMO foods are engineered to be “Roundup Ready” which means they are designed to tolerate being sprayed with high amounts of glyphosate. There are other GMOs that are actually designed to make glyphosate in their tissues. Both types of GMO vegetable are likely to expose you to higher amounts of glyphosate than comparable conventionally grown produce.

How to avoid exposure to Roundup: Go organic
The best way to protect yourself from exposure to Roundup is to choose organic produce. By law, herbicides like Roundup are not allowed to be used on organically grown food. Organics also have much higher antioxidant content than non-organic food, so it’s definitely worth it!
Alkaline water pesticide detox – You can actually see it working!
All you need to do to actually see alkaline water detoxify your produce is soak it in alkaline water and watch: In just a few minutes, the water will turn dirty brown! Let your produce soak in alkaline water for about 20 minutes to neutralize herbicide residues. Then, discard the dirty water, rinse your produce with fresh alkaline water, and enjoy! You may also notice that your green veggies stay a lot greener and fresher looking when prepared with alkaline water.
