An FDA-registered Food Safety Lab tested a range of different food products and the pesticide was found to be present in some of the products up to 1,000 times more than what is considered the safe amount!
Health implications start to occur when just 0.01 ppb of glyphosate is ingested by humans, but a thousand times more than this was found in certain products.
Monsanto has tried to explain that ingesting this pesticide will not harm your health, but there are lots of reasons to believe that this is not the case. Independent studies have linked glyphosate to cancer development, and the World Health Organisation has deemed it as a ‘probably human carcinogen’. It has been linked to reproductive problems, obesity, diabetes, and is thought to be an endocrine disruptor.
The chemical is found to be so widespread that it is even being found in food products labeled as ‘organic’.
The media has not reported anything near the extent of the contamination, so it is important that you share this article in order to get to the timeline of your family and friends.
The chemical was found in many common brands like Ritz Crackers, Cheerios, Kellogs, Oreo’s … How many people do you know that eat these famous products every day? They could be consuming harmful amounts of pesticide that is designed to kill insects, not be in your food!
Monsanto makes billions of dollars every year through the sale of glyphosate-based products. Of course, they don’t want any media publicity that will damage their monopoly in the industry. The less the people know, the more they can get away with.
In 2013 the level of glyphosate that was considered ‘safe’ to be in food was increased by the EPA. You may think they were acting in the interest of public safety, but the EPA has a long history of jumping through hoops for whatever Monsanto wants. The government agencies and industry have been scratching each other’s backs for hundreds of years, and of course, it is sill happening today.
The FDA are not to be trusted either. After years of avoiding the issue of testing for glyphosate in foods, they announced in February they would begin testing. What will be, will the test be done, will Monsanto be happy?
The extent of the problem is breathtaking and it seems that you are at risk of this chemical whatever you buy, but the safest option is to buy from the organic market, from people you know and trust. Find out exactly where your food is coming from, only then can you be sure it hasn’t been tainted at the hands of Monsanto.
