Zach Bush: Glyphosate has interrupted and interfered with the essential amino acids plants were providing to humans.
How did it do this? It did it thru blocking an enzyme pathway called the shikimate pathway.
The shikimate pathway (shikimic acid pathway) is a seven step metabolic route used by bacteria, archaea, fungi, algae, some protozoans, and plants for the biosynthesis of folates and aromatic amino acids (phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan).
This pathway is not found in animals and humans. Animals and humans require these amino acids. Hence the products of this pathway represent essential amino acids. They must be obtained from organisms which are not animals; or, from animals whose diet includes lower organisms who do have the shikimate pathway and can make these amino acids.
Monsanto claims Roudup is safe because it interferes with an enzyme pathway only present in bacteria, archaea, fungi, algae, some protozoans, and plants .
So Gly kills the pathway in plants that makes teh essential amino acids humans need.
