Round Up…It’s What’s for Dinner

The Guardian has a good article regarding the prevalence of Round Up (glyphosate) in our food supply. As many of us have long suspected, it’s in just about everything. But the FDA hasn’t completed their study, so the only information available is the internal emails between researchers on this study.

It’s quite telling.

For people who think that Round up actually disappears from the soil once it’s been applied, the contamination across the entire gamut of your food should put that belief to a serious challenge.

Here is an excerpt from the article, but please do go and read it as this is really only a snippet and it is well worth the read.

More than 200m pounds of weedkiller are used annually by US farmers on their fields. It is sprayed directly over some crops, including corn, soybeans, wheat and oats.

……..But the internal documents obtained by the Guardian show the FDA has had trouble finding any food that does not carry traces of the pesticide.

“I have brought wheat crackers, granola cereal and corn meal from home and there’s a fair amount in all of them,” FDA chemist Richard Thompson wrote to colleagues in an email last year regarding glyphosate. Thompson, who is based in an FDA regional laboratory in Arkansas, wrote that broccoli was the only food he had “on hand” that he found to be glyphosate-free.

That internal FDA email, dated January 2017, is part of a string of FDA communications that detail agency efforts to ascertain how much of the popular weedkiller is showing up in American food. The tests mark the agency’s first-ever such examination.

“People care about what contaminants are in their food. If there is scientific information about these residues in the food, the FDA should release it,” said Tracey Woodruff, a professor in the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine. “It helps people make informed decisions. Taxpayers paid for the government to do this work, they should get to see the information.”

The FDA is charged with annually testing food samples for pesticide residues to monitor for illegally high residue levels. The fact that the agency only recently started testing for glyphosate, a chemical that has been used for over 40 years in food production, has led to criticism from consumer groups and the Government Accountability Office (GAO). Calls for testing grew after the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen in 2015. (read entire article here)

    It’s in most rainwater D. If you want to get a real scare read this information that shows that glyphosate, fluoride, and nano aluminum for a tertiary weapon that the powers that be are purposely subjecting us to.

    YOU BE THE JUDGE

    This lady knows her stuff and is also the expert on PIneal gland calcification from glyphosate, fluoride, and aluminum.
