For the last few months the battle of Monsanto’s cancer-linked weed killer has been in the forefront of news, conversation and debates. Glyphosate is an herbicide that is applied to the leaves of plants to kill both broadleaf plants and grasses. *The sodium salt form of glyphosate is used to regulate plant growth and ripen specific crops. Glyphosate was first registered for use in the U.S. in 1974.

Disturbingly, Glyphosate has been found in various foods & cereals and continues to undergo further investigation. Sadly, the EPA still considers this herbicide as “safe”. Three courts in California have ordered Bayer-Monsanto to pay more than $2 billion after each of the juries found glyphosate caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma in four people who used Roundup.

So what do we do now? This blog is to alert you to the issue but also to provide you with the list (as released through EWG) to inform you of the foods where traces of glyphosate have been detected. If you eat any of these it is advised that you stop immediately. The health risks are literally fatal.

Below is the list of foods that have been detected thus far:

All of these products were tested above the level of the EWG’s safety standard (160 ppb).
