Many have been suspicious of the use of glysophate for quite some time. The reason is that a staggering number of people who work in the agricultural and farming industries who substantially use glysophate tend to develop cancer. While Monsanto has denied and continues to deny that glysophate is linked to cancer, lawsuits continue to pile up. After significant testing, it has been discovered that many of the foods we commonly eat contain Monsanto’s glysophate.
What is Glyosphate?
It is the active ingredient in Roundup weed killer. It is commonly used to kill unwanted weeds and vegetation. Farmers use glysophate to kill weeds without harming crops. Genetically modified crops or GMO’s were developed to resist glysophate naturally, making Roundup and glysophate much more effective for the farming industry. However, with so much heavy use of Monsanto’s glysophate, it shows up in traces in many of our foods. To understand the extent of glysophate use in our agricultural industry, this quote from Newsweek sums it up:
“Americans have applied 1.8 million tons of glyphosate since its introduction in 1974. Worldwide, 9.4 million tons of the chemicals have been sprayed onto fields. For comparison, that’s equivalent to the weight of water in more than 2,300 Olympic-size swimming pools. It’s also enough to spray nearly half a pound of Roundup on every cultivated acre of land in the world.” ~Newsweek

Why is Glysophate found in so many foods?
If you notice, there is a pattern to the types of food where glyosphate is most commonly present, which is grain and corn. Those are the most common crops among farmers. The grain or corn is used in corn puffs, corn and grain-based cereals, grain-based snacks, cereals, cereal bars, oats, oatmeal, crackers and more.
Additional Foods That Contain Glysophate
In addition to cereals and foods of this nature, there are other w=foods where glysophate shows up when tested. According to the Environmental Working Group glysophate is also found in foods such as pizza and pasta. This means that Monsanto’s glysophate extends far beyond wheat and oat products. It may be contained within any wheat or flour-based product or anything plant-based.
How is Glysophate allowed in so much of our food?
The Environmental Protection Agency has come to the conclusion that Glysophate is likely not carcinogenic, which means that it isn’t doesn’t cause cancer. There is a huge debate on this, simply due to the sheer number of cancer cases from people who were exposed to it on a long-term basis. The FDA trusts the EPA, which means that as long as it is not deemed harmful, then the FDA will allow up to a certain amount of glysophate to show up in our food. According to them, glysophate is harmless in trace amounts.
