Glyphosate weedkiller found in all 5 popular orange juice brands

 
24

This week, Moms Across America released test results that revealed glyphosate– the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup- is present in all of the five popular orange juice brands. This is incredibly troubling, especially given that a branch of the WHO designated glyohosate a “probable carcinogen” two years ago. What is it going to take for the EPA to ban this toxic poison?

“The average person in America consumes 2.7 gallons of orange juice and 3 pounds of oranges each year. ‘100% Pure Orange Juice’ is a common claim used by many juice brands that allow consumers to feel safe when serving it to their families on a daily basis. Finding glyphosate in food and beverages is becoming less of a surprise and more of a serious health risk, as honey, cereals, bagels, eggs, snacks, wine, beer, and most recently Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream have tested positive for glyphosate. The EU is currently reviewing evidence of coverups by the manufacturer and is considering banning the use of glyphosate herbicides.”1

Two samples of each of the brands listed below were tested for both the herbicide glyphosate and its residue AMPA, with the results ranging from 4.33 parts per billion (“ppb”) to an alarming 26.05 ppb.

Studies have shown that just 0.1 ppb of glyphosate can destroy beneficial gut bacteria and weaken the immune system and 1 part per trillion (ppt) has been shown to stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells. For context, 1 ppt is equivalent to 1 drop in the water of 22 Olympic swimming pools combined. This stuff is dangerous.

Also, to drive the point home, the USGS has shown that counties in Florida had as much as two tons per square mile of residual glyphosate/AMPA in their soil. Scary.

The Health Research Institute Laboratories routinely undergoes independent, third party proficiency testing of its methods. The lab is also certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments act of 1988 (CLIA-88) to perform high complexity clinical testing. 3

If you are angry and want to do something about this, you can ask orange juice brands to switch to “organic regenerative agriculture practices to protect our children, the farmers, wildlife, soil, and water.”4
