Glyphosate is Monsanto’s flagship herbicide, appearing in hundreds of agricultural and gardening products, and although it has been linked to cancer and other serious health issues including birth defects and degenerative diseases, the FDA appears to be withholding the fact that this poison is contaminating many of the foods in your pantry.
Glyphosate has been found in a wide array of popular foods including cereals, staples like corn and soy, Ben and Jerry’s ice creams, and even in human breastmilk, suggesting that the chemical is making it to your table whether you know it or not.
Sadly, however, the FDA, the agency tasked with protecting the American public from unsafe food, has known for sometime that traces glyphosate are found in many more foods, but after two years of looking into this, the FDA still has not issued a warning to the public.
Recently, The Guardian obtained internal FDA documents that researchers within the FDA know full well that common foods are contaminated with glyphosate. In one email, FDA chemist Richard Thompson admits that food from his own home has tested positive.
