FDA Ignores New Report Indicating Cancer-Causing Herbicide Detected In Organic Foods
Your family likely ingested Monsanto’s cancer-causing herbicide with their breakfast this morning and the FDA couldn’t care less.
The FDA is demonstrating their incompetence yet again by completely ignoring a new report that shows how ubiquitous Monsanto’s carcinogenic Roundup has become.
According to the report released by the Alliance for Natural Health USA, detectable levels of glyphosate, the chief ingredient in Roundup, were found in numerous breakfast food items. Glyphosate, which has been linked to cancer by the World Health Organization, was found in bagels, cereals and coffee creamers.
What is really concerning, and exemplifies the need for an immediate ban on the carcinogenic herbicide, is that some of the highest levels of the toxic chemical were found in organic foods, such as eggs and breads. The organic eggs tested were especially tainted with glyphosate, far exceeding regulatory standards.
Microbe Infotech Laboratories, founded by former Monsanto scientist Bruce Hemming, conducted the testing. For 25 years, Microbe has been well-respected and is the go-to lab for glyphosate testing by food companies and consumer groups.
The report confirms what many have feared for a long time. Glyphosate is making its way into our food in ways that we may not realize. For example, last year a separate study found 75% of rain and air samples tested positive for Monsanto’s cancer-causing poison. What kind of ramifications do you think this will have for those growing organic gardens?
The ANH’s report also discusses how farmers are using Roundup to speed up the harvest for crops like wheat and that its testing confirms “Americans are consuming glyphosate in common foods on a daily basis.”
The ANH admits that the samples detecting glyphosate did register at levels lower than what U.S. regulating agencies deem safe. But this should not give anybody any kind of relief.
Unfortunately for Americans, the ANH goes on to point out that the levels considered safe in the U.S. are substantially higher than European standards. The report also touched on the fact that glyphosate alone is not nearly as toxic as herbicide formulations. The combination of glyphosate with other compounds in Roundup has never been tested. Not once. Not ever. (You can read more about that here.)
But it’s doused on the food supply. Over 75% of ‘foods’ in the U.S. have been genetically modified. Roundup is requisite for GMOs to grow. So, it’s safe to say 3/4 of the food in our grocery stores are tainted with Roundup.
“The fact that it is showing up in foods like eggs and coffee creamer, which don’t directly contact the herbicide, shows that it’s being passed on by animals who ingest it in their feed,” said Gretchen DuBeau, executive director of ANH-USA. “This is contrary to everything that regulators and industry scientists have been telling the public.”
So the FDA must be in a panic to ensure the safety of the food supply and the people consuming it.
Wrong. In fact, the FDA is doing everything possible to NOT talk about glyphosate.
In February, Carey Gillam (research director for U.S. Right To Know), broke the story about the FDA’s decision to finally begin testing for glyphosate residues in food. But of course, a complete lack of transparency was demonstrated and the FDA was as stingy as possible on the details, only stating that it was “considering assignments… to measure glyphosate in soybeans, corn, milk, and eggs, among other potential foods.”
The FDA tests the food supply for radiation, toxic chemicals, and various pesticides but refuses to test for glyphosate, which was recognized recently as the most widely used herbicide in the history of global agriculture.
It’s no secret that Monsanto has infiltrated the FDA and other agencies, as well as the U.S. government. It’s also no secret that Monsanto’s glyphosate-herbicide related profits were over $5 billion dollars last year alone.
It’s pretty evident why the FDA is refusing to do its job.
