even a low level of glyphosate exposure is unsafe

Proponents of GMOs and Glyphosate-based herbicides
and staunch believers in the EPA have long argued that low
levels of glyphosate exposure are safe for humans.
Even our EPA tells us that Americans can consume 17 times
more glyphosate in our drinking water than European residents.

The EWG asserts that 160 ppb of glyphosate found in breakfast
cereal is safe for a child to consume
due to their own safety assessments,
and yet renowned scientists and health advocates have long
stated that no level is safe.
Confusion amongst consumers and the media is rampant.

Glyphosate is the declared active chemical ingredient in Roundup
and Ranger Pro, which are both manufactured by Monsanto,
the original manufacturer of Agent Orange and DDT.
There are 750 brands of glyphosate-based herbicides.
Glyphosate based herbicides are the most widely used in the world
and residues of glyphosate have been found in tap water,
children’s urine, breast milk, chips, snacks, beer, wine,
cereals, eggs, oatmeal, wheat products,
and most conventional foods tested.

The detection of glyphosate in these foods has set off alarms
of concern in households and food manufacturers’ offices
around the world.
Lawsuits have sprung up against companies that make food
products that claim to be “100% Natural” and yet contain
glyphosate residues.
These lawsuits have been successful. Debates, using the
argument that “the dose makes the poison,” have been pushed
by media. Speculation is that these media outlets are funded
by advertisers that make or sell these chemicals or have
sister companies that do, and threatening their profits
would be unwise for all involved – except the consumers.

It is time to set the record straight :
Here are 12 reasons why there is no safe level of glyphosate
herbicide residue in our food or beverages.

Babies, toddlers, and young children have kidneys and livers
which are underdeveloped and do not have the ability to detox
toxins the way adults do.
Their bodies are less capable of eliminating toxins
and therefore are particularly susceptible.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has stated that
children, especially, should avoid pesticides because,
“prenatal and early childhood exposure to pesticides is
associated with pediatric cancers,
decreased cognitive function and behavioral problems.”

Glyphosate does not wash, dry or cook off,
and has been shown to bioaccumulate in the bone marrow,
tendons and muscle tissue.
Bioaccumulation of low levels over time will result in
levels which we cannot predict or determine;
therefore there is no scientific basis to state that the
low levels are not dangerous, as they can accumulate
to high levels in an unforeseeable amount of time.

“There is no current reliable way to determine the incidence
of pesticide exposure and illness in US children.” -AAP

Children are exposed through food, air, contact with grass
and pets. How much they are being exposed to daily from all
these possibilities is simply not something that we have been
able to determine.
Therefore no one is capable of assessing what levels are safe
from any one modality of exposure
because an additional low level from other modalities could
add up to a high level of exposure.

Ultra-low levels of glyphosate herbicides have been proven
to cause non-alcoholic liver disease in a long term animal
study by Michael Antoniou, Giles Eric Seralini et al.
The levels the rats were exposed to, per kg of body weight,
were far lower than what is allowed in our food supply.

According to the Mayo Clinic 100 million, or 1 out of 3
Americans now have liver disease.
These diagnoses are in some as young as 8 years old.

Ultra-low levels of glyphosate have been shown to be
endocrine and hormone disrupting.
Changes to hormones can lead to birth defects, miscarriage,
autoimmune disease, cancer, mental and chronic illness.

The EPA Allowable Daily Intake Levels (ADIs) of glyphosate
exposure were set for a 175-pound man,
not a pregnant mother, infant, or child.

Glyphosate alone has been shown to be chronically toxic
causing organ and cell damage.
Glyphosate herbicides final formulations, have been shown
to be acutely toxic, causing immediate damage at low levels.

The detection of glyphosate at low levels could mean the
presence of the other toxic ingredients in glyphosate
herbicides on our food. Until studies are done, one must
practice the Precautionary Principle.

The label on glyphosate herbicides does not specify the
pesticide class or “other”/“inert” ingredients that may
have significant acute toxicity and can account for
up to 54% of the product.

Regarding the label and low-level exposure:
“Chronic toxicity information is not included, and labels
are predominantly available in English.
There is significant use of illegal pesticides
(especially in immigrant communities), off-label use,
and overuse, underscoring the importance of education,
monitoring, and enforcement.” – AAP.

Exposure to low levels of glyphosate herbicides can occur
through pregnant wives or children hugging the father who
is a pesticide applicator.
The chronic health impacts such as rashes which can,
years later, result in non-Hodgkin lymphoma,
are often ignored, especially by low income or non-English
speaking users dependent on their pesticide application
occupation for survival.
The EPA has admitted to not having any long-term animal
studies with blood analysis on the final formulation of
any glyphosate herbicides.
The EPA cannot state that the final formulation is safe.

For approval of pesticides and herbicides, the EPA only
requires safety studies, by the manufacturer who benefits
from the sales, on the one declared active chemical
ingredient — in this case glyphosate.
Glyphosate is never used alone.

The main manufacturer, Monsanto, has been found to be guilty
on all counts by a San Francisco Supreme Court Jury
in the Johnson v Monsanto.
This includes guilty of “malice and oppression”
which means that the company executives knew that their
glyphosate products could cause cancer
and suppressed this information from the public.

Clearly, it is time for food and beverage manufacturers
to have a zero tolerance for glyphosate residue levels
and for the US EPA and regulatory agencies everywhere
to stop ignoring the science
and to revoke the license of glyphosate immediately.
