This podcast made me both sad and MAD. I interviewed Glyphosate Girl, Kelly Ryerson about the damage glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup) does to our environment and our bodies.
Kelly Ryerson has spent years in the trenches explaining to anyone who would listen why this chemical is so dangerous. It’s such an easy default to just use a heavy load of chemicals to kill weeks. Did you know that there are simple alternatives to using such a large amount of chemicals in farming?
Kelly also explained to me that while this product is sold in Europe, the company that makes Roundup has created a less toxic alternative for sale in Europe. This to me is mind-blowing! If they can make a less toxic version for Europe that still works, can’t one be made for the US as well?
Kelly Ryerson works at the intersection of agriculture and health. She regularly collaborates with farmers, scientists, policymakers, and media to address agrochemical damage to our soil and bodies. She also started the news site Glyphosate Facts, which explains the link between chemical agriculture and the explosion in chronic disease. Kelly has contributed to several documentaries and news publications, co-hosts the morning show on CHDtv, and is a frequent podcast speaker. She is an Ambassador for The Rodale Institute. She has a BA from Dartmouth College, an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and completed training in integrative health coaching at Duke Integrative Medicine.
Check out Kelly’s website GlyphosateFacts.com, where she has multiple studies listed.

I love using Bison! It’s very nutrient dense and contains conjugated linoleic acid (I know, what the heck does that mean?), which means Bison has anti-inflammatory properties.
Here are the other reasons why I love using Bison in place of ground beef:
- Higher amounts of omega three fatty acids.
- More b12, zinc, iron, and selenium than beef.
- Some studies show it’s got four times the vitamin E compared to beef.
- Lower in calories and cholesterol.
- It is lower fat, so it will cook faster than ground beef.
