Tests Reveal That High Levels Of Weed Killer Is In Our Food, Including Baby Food.

High Levels Of Weed Killer Is In Food, Including Baby Food.

Tests Reveal That High Levels Of Weed Killer Is In our food supply, and that Includes Baby Food! An FDA-registered Food Safety Testing Laboratory found very high levels of the pesticide glyphosate (the active ingredient in round-up weed killer, which is made by Monsanto) in some popular brand foods. This includes: Cheerios, Oreos, Doritos, and Ritz Crackers! (1) Scientific research shows that levels as low as 0.1 part per billion (ppb) can cause extreme health damage. Cheerios measured as much as 1.125.3 ppb! (2)

Because children’s organs, bones, brains, etc. are forming until about age 21, the quality or toxic nature of their food and body care products are more critical and can be extremely harmful.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, is the most heavily used chemical weed-killer in history. “U.S. regulators allow a very high level of daily glyphosate residue in America’s food. The acceptable daily intake (ADI) limit is set at 1.75 milligrams per kilogram of bodyweight per day (written 1.75 mg/kg bw/day) in the U.S., versus a more cautious 0.3 mg/kg bw/day in the European Union.

Tolerances have been set through the submission of corporate-sponsored studies and industry influence on the regulatory process. New research shows that Roundup causes liver and kidney damage in rats, as reflected in changes in the functions of 4,000 genes at only 0.05 parts per billion (ppb) glyphosate equivalent, indicating damage.” (3)

Recent studies on the Toxicity of Glyphosate (Roundup) found this herbicide carcinogenic.[4]

They found glyphosate:

  1. Causes cell cycle dysregulation, which is a hallmark of tumor cells and human cancers. It’s deemed a carcinogen by the World Health Organization’s team of international cancer experts. Strong evidence from animal studies has linked the chemical to various forms of cancer, and “limited evidence” from human studies has linked it to non-Hodgkins lymphoma in particular. (5)
  2. Inhibits DNA synthesis in certain parts of the cell cycle—the cells’ reproductive process, which underlies the growth and development of all living organisms. It disrupts hormones and leads to reproductive problems, early onset puberty, obesity, diabetes, and some cancers. (6)
  3. Impedes the hatchings of sea urchins. (Sea urchins were used because they constitute an appropriate model for the identification of undesirable cellular and molecular targets of pollutants.) The delay was found to be dose dependent on the concentration of Roundup. The surfactant polyoxyethylene amine (POEA), another major component of Roundup, was also found to be highly toxic to the embryos when tested alone, and could therefore be a contributing factor. [7)[7)

I would like to let our voices be heard, so that the news will report these findings, and so that the FDA and the USDA will put a ban on this chemical that is leaching into our water and our environment, and is poisoning our food supply. If we do nothing, they assume we do not care.

The only way they will listen is if we demand they listen. Please share this story with your friends, family, etc.  The only way this injustice will be corrected is if enough of us stand up and demand that something be done to stop the poisoning of our food supply.

Here is a detailed list from Food Democracy Now, showing the test results. (8)

We should all be outraged that this weed killer is in non-GMO and organic food?

It’s because the widespread use of this chemical has seeped into the water supply, the soils, and the air. Glyphosate is not just used on GMO crops, even though most GMO crops were developed to withstand huge amounts of this chemical herbicide to be dumped on them in the field. There are quite a few farmers, who are not organic farmers, who use it to help dry their oat and wheat crops. In all of these types of crops, the round-up is then in the food, and is not able to be washed off.

They also use these toxic herbicides, containing glyphosate, extensively in public areas like parks.  They are neurotoxins and can cause nerve damage. They can go right through the skin and directly into the blood stream. Think of your baby crawling on the grass or your pet’s nose sniffing it. Look at the rise in cancer in pets and children in the US. I find this incredibly alarming.

The American Cancer Society states on their website that Cancer is the second leading cause of death in children aged 1 to 14 in 2016.

Likewise, the Veterinary Cancer Society states that cancer is the leading cause of death in 47% of dogs.

Everyone seems to act as if this is something that is normal, but I firmly believe it to be a direct result of the toxins (like carcinogens such as glyphosate) in our environment, food and water.

Pollinators travel all over the place gathering food from flowers. Even though “there is no legal tolerance level for glyphosate in honey in the United States,” (10) Glyphosate is used so extensively, that the FDA found it in every single honey they tested. (11)

“Even though the FDA annually examines foods for residues of many pesticides, it has skipped testing for glyphosate residues for decades. It was only in February of this year that the FDA said it would start some glyphosate residues analysis. The government and Monsanto have maintained that any glyphosate residues in food would be minimal enough to be safe. But critics say without robust testing, glyphosate levels in food are not known. And they say that even trace amounts may be harmful because they are likely consumed so regularly in many foods.” (12)

Bees are so sensitive that these toxins are one of the reasons the bee population has declined by over 90% in the last few years, and those are only the hive bees that can be counted. We can’t effectively count the wild bees  or other pollinators, who live singularly.

Can we even guess how many people have glyphosate-filled foods in their pantry? In my opinion, this can be one of the reasons half the men in the US have cancer. One third of women have cancer. The leading cause of death in the US of children is cancer.

So, my question is: why isn’t our government protecting our food supply from these cancer-causing chemical and herbicides?

Why isn’t this type of information being reported on major network channels or newspapers?

This is in my opinion the slow poisoning of Americans, and it’s being allowed by our own government.

I just wonder how much money is changing hands from Monsanto and other companies that manufacture these glyphosate herbicides, to these agencies or the people who are in charge of regulating the toxins in our environment and our food supply. I can’t imagine any other reason for them to allow this kind of continued use to happen, especially after being shown time and time again that they are harmful.

I feel we need to ban lobbyists, and also demand that our government regulators start protecting us from these harmful poisons that are saturating our food, our environment and our water supply.

According to EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) archives in the United States, it has been documented that Monsanto knew of the potential of glyphosate to cause cancer in mammals as long ago as 1981. (13)

Why would the EPA create a cover-up, or continue to allow Monsanto and other companies to use these documented cancer-causing herbicides on crops?

I personally am so disgusted with the regulations for our food in this country.

I think it’s disgraceful what our country’s regulatory agencies allow to happen to our food, (including baby food!), our environment and our water. (14)

I don’t think it will stop until we demand it.

We need to share this story and other ones like the Food Democracy Now’s documented studies, until they can’t deny it any longer, and must do something about it.

Just remember that you, your family and your friends’ health depends on what you ingest.  Avoid the herbicide-laden foods by choosing certified organic foods. These toxic chemicals, including glyphosate, are prohibited on organic crops.

In closing, I’m asking for a call to action.
Please share this story on twitter, facebook, etc.
We need to demand that our food be safe.
The government should take action on this, because it’s the ethical thing to do.
