The Alliance for Natural Health-USA has released the results of food safety testing on several breakfast foods. Of the 24 samples tested, 10 had the presence of glyphosate.
ANH-USA executive and legal director Gretchen DuBeau stated that they “expected that trace amounts would show up in foods containing large amounts of corn and soy. However, we were unprepared for just how invasive this poison has been to our entire food chain.”
The chemical was found to be in oatmeal, bagels, eggs (even organic eggs), potatoes, and non-GMO soy coffee creamer. The presence of glyphosate in dairy products may be due to bioaccumulation, which is the accumulation of the chemical in the tissue of animals.
Glyphosate was developed by Monsanto in the 1970s and is one of the primary ingredients in Roundup, one of the most popular herbicides in the world and the object of controversy regarding its effects on both the environment and human health. It was recently revealed to be a probably carcinogen by the World Health Organization (WHO).
DuBeau says that “Glyphosate has been linked to increases in levels of breast, thyroid, kidney, pancreatic, liver and bladder cancers and is being served for breakfast, lunch and dinner around the world. 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. This is contrary to everything that regulators and industry scientists have been telling the public.”
