KOSA Acupuncture in Gaithersburg, MD describes why GMO is unhealthy.
Root Problems and Root Causes
While acupuncturist (incl. other type of medical practitioners) is responsible for treating patients’ root problems (or organs),
patients are responsible for elimination of root causes as shown in below table.
Unfortunately, many acupuncturists believe their responsibility is limited to dealing with root problems and even worse, they don’t know and are not interested in knowing what root causes have been harming their patients.
Therefore, it looks like acupuncturists’ goal is to help their patients just enough to make them feel better so that they have to keep coming back and acupuncturists don’t want to lose their patients.

KOSA Acupuncture in Gaithersburg, MD is happy to present what is GMO.
Chelation is a type of bonding of ions and molecules to metal ions. It involves the formation or presence of two or more separate coordinate bonds between a polydentate (multiple bonded) ligand and a single central atom. These ligands are called chelants, chelators, chelating agents, or sequestering agents. They are usually organic compounds.
Chelation is useful in applications such as providing nutritional supplements, in chelation therapy to remove toxic metals from the body, as contrast agents in MRI scanning, in manufacturing using homogeneous catalysts, in chemical water treatment to assist in the removal of metals, and in fertilizers.
Glyphosate and Roundup
Glyphosate is absorbed through foliage, and minimally through roots, and transported to growing points. It inhibits a plant enzyme involved in the synthesis of three aromatic amino acids: tyrosine, tryptophan, and phenylalanine.
Glyphosate was first synthesized in 1950 by Swiss chemist Henry Martin, who worked for the Swiss company Cilag. The work was never published.
Stauffer Chemical patented the agent as a chemical chelator in 1964 as it binds and removes minerals such as calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper, and zinc.
Somewhat later, glyphosate was independently discovered in the United States at Monsanto in 1970. Monsanto chemists had synthesized about 100 derivatives of aminomethylphosphonic acid as potential water-softening agents. Two were found to have weak herbicidal activity, and John E. Franz, a chemist at Monsanto, was asked to try to make analogs with stronger herbicidal activity. Glyphosate was the third analog he made.
GMO is born
Glyphosate works by preventing plants from being able to make the proteins they need to survive. Since virtually all plants make these essential proteins the same way, glyphosate affects nearly all plants. For this reason, glyphosate is deemed a “broad-spectrum” herbicide.
The gene allowing resistance to glyphosate was taken from a type of bacteria called Agrobacteria. With the introduction of this organism’s relevant gene into the desired plant genetics, a Roundup Ready crop is born.
