Heather CallaghanActivist PostA non-regulatory division of WHO called International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) just announced that glyphosate - the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide - is a probable human carcinogen. While that may seem like a tepid statement, it comes after a decision based on the view of 17 experts from 11 countries who recently met in Lyon, France, to assess the carcinogenicity of 5 organophosphate pesticides.Even though Europe is set t [...]

The herbicide glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, was included in the report and was linked to cancer. The agency stated:
For the herbicide glyphosate [...]

Are Annual Tax-payer Funded Reports on Pesticides Producing Useful Information?
The results of government testing of our foods for pesticide residues may not quite be what we expected. Every year the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) targets certain food materials which they consider high risks, collects samples from warehouses and storage facilities, and tests them for [...]
New lab report testing carried out by Moms Across America has found the world’s number one herbicide, glyphosate, to be found in feeding tube liquid which is given to babies and children who are in need of nutrition in intensive care. Specifically, the herbicide was found in PediaSure Enteral Nutritional Drink.
The testing found that 6 of the 20 samples tested contained ‘high’ levels of glyphosate – over 75 ug/l, which was the minimum detection level of the ELISA assay [...]
