Glyphosate Study Finds

Inhabitat’s Lacy Cooke covers the new landmark study which has documented very troubling “probable human carcinogen” glyphosate content – from Monsanto weed-killer Roundup – in iconic American processed foods. Jim

“San Francisco laboratory Anresco tested 29 foods for glyphosate at the request of Food Democracy Now and Detox Project. In the report, the two organizations detail new evidence revealing humans could be harmed with glyphosate levels above 0.1 parts per billion (ppb). Anresco testing meanwhile found foods contained far greater amounts of the herbicide than considered safe. Cheerios contained a whopping 1,125.3 ppb, Ritz Crackers contained 270.24 ppb, and Kashi soft-baked oatmeal dark chocolate cookies contained 275.57 ppb. Other foods tested include Wheaties, Oreo cookies, Goldfish, Lay’s potato chips, Whole Foods 365 crackers, and Annie’s cookies, among several other brands (you can see a full list on pages eight and nine of the report here).”
