We’ve often revealed to you the dangers of glyphosate, a substance found in RoundUp Ready Weed Killer and all around us. This chemical was recently labeled by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a probable cause of cancer. The real question is how can we know if our families, especially our children, are being exposed to this toxin?
The Science About the Dangers of Glyphosate is Adding Up
How much of a danger does glyphosate pose to American families? Henry Rowlands, Director of Feed The World stated Thursday; “Glyphosate is the backbone of our current agricultural system that supplies us with toxic food, water and air.” That’s why it’s no surprise that studies have found this chemical in the breast milk of moms (even those who eat organic), drinking water, air, soil, and of course, in the food we feed our children.
While the FDA claims that glyphosate is safe and has actually debated the WHO’s claims, more scientists are joining in the warnings about the how toxic this chemical is for people and children. Dr. Michael Antoniou, Molecular Geneticist, London claims there is “increasing evidence that glyphosate may be toxic at very low doses … can lead to serious illness in all age groups.” Dr. Paul Winchester, Clinical Professor at the Division of Neonatology, Indiana University School of Medicine and the Director of the neonatal intensive-care unit at St. Francis Hospital stated, “RoundUp is used to kill weeds but also to desiccate crops prior to harvest. It is found in ground water, river water, rain, snow, soil, and food and the levels are rising. Is RoundUp in you? Is it in your baby? Is this weed killer imprinting our descendants’ DNA? These are the questions we hope you will help to answer.”
Now You Can Test Your Family for Glyphosate Exposure
How can we help answer that question? Feed the World is proud to announce the release of the world’s first validated public glyphosate testing set! If you live in the U.S., you can now test your urine, breast milk or tap water for glyphosate contamination. If you live outside the U.S., you can send urine or tap water samples only in the U.S., however, Feed the World is aiming to form partnerships with labs in your country so that testing can be more affordable for you. Now you can discover how much glyphosate your children are being exposed to.
Feed The World believes that testing for glyphosate in our bodies is just the first step. Rowlands says that the organization aims “to ban glyphosate by allowing the public to inform themselves about what levels of glyphosate are found in their own and their family’s bodies.”
