Glyphosate in ‘Roundup’ weedkiller is ubiquitous in conventionally produced foods and beverages – worldwide!

My partner and I are becoming stricter by the day. We are aware of the enormous amount of this poison being dumped on our food-growing land and into the water systems. ALL conventional food is suspect and I recommend a diet made up totally of organic produce.
Our local Tesco Extra is brilliant in that I can obtain everything I need organically and local farmers markets have plenty of organic foods. We now have two organic eateries in town! And a local organic brewery!
The long term effects of this poison must rank up there with the inclusion of Fluoride in some of the UK water systems. Basically we are under attack on multiple levels but once we become aware of the threat it is at least possible to ameliorate the consequences by buying the best we can. Organic products cost a lot more but they contain far more nutrients and give the body what it needs thus we don’t always need so much. And we feel so much better!
Below is the relevant article from Natural News. Yes, its from the US but Roundup is everywhere here too and showing up in the urine of most Europeans.
Brand name processed foods found laced with glyphosate weed killer include Kellog’s Cornflakes, a staple breakfast cereal given to children. In the study linked below you will find a list of problems building up for our children due to Roundup.
I am calling for a total, immediate ban on this dangerous poison.

(Natural News) Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide and many other commercially available weed killers. Due to the widespread adoption of genetically modified (GM) crops, glyphosate has become the most commonly used weed killer in the conventional farming industry. GM glyphosate-resistant crops are now grown on more than 175 million acres in the United States and more than 440 million acres worldwide. Each year, more than 300 million pounds of glyphosate-based herbicides are sprayed on American food crops, lawns, and gardens.

Recently, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared glyphosate as a “probable carcinogen.” As more health risks associated with glyphosate exposure start to emerge, the European Union remains uncertain whether it will renew its authorization of glyphosate in commercial products in Europe.

Furthermore, recent safety testing has shown that glyphosate residues can cause harm to human health, even at ultra-low levels. While the evidence is clear, the U.S. authorities, unfortunately, keep allowing this dangerous toxin to end up in our food chain at worrying levels. Safety testing of glyphosate residues in Roundup-sprayed crops is often ignored and unreliable.

While Monsanto has continuously claimed that Roundup is harmless to our health, multiple studies are painting a different picture. Regular exposure to glyphosate has been linked to chronic conditions such as autism, Crohn’s disease, allergies, depression, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and infertility.

Glyphosate found in many processed foods

Anresco Laboratories in San Francisco, an FDA-registered food safety lab, recently conducted their own research to see whether glyphosate can be found in commonly consumed processed foods. And their tests revealed the worst. Previous research has shown that glyphosate or glyphosate residues of only 0.05 parts per billion (ppb) can cause damage to at least 4,000 genes, while 10 ppb may cause serious health effects, such as kidney and liver damage. Anresco’s results, however, indicated that some of the tested foods had up to 1,000 times that amount.

The testing and analysis were requested by Food Democracy Now! and The Detox Project, who bundled the results in a 29-page report called “Glyphosate: UNSAFE ON ANY PLATE.” According to the report, U.S. regulators currently allow a very high level of daily glyphosate residues in our food. The authors hope their report can serve as a strong wake-up call for all Americans to reconsider their consumption of some of their favorite processed foods.

Furthermore, Food Democracy Now! has called for a federal investigation into the damaging effects of glyphosate and the relationships between the industry and the regulators that allow these toxins to end up in our food chain.

Below you’ll find an overview of common brand names and the amount of glyphosate that was found in some of their products, with General Mills Cheerios topping the list with an astonishing 1,125.3 ppb.

To steer your family clear of glyphosate-tainted foods, eliminate all processed foods from your daily diet. Always opt for whole organic foods, locally or homegrown if possible. Only then you can be absolutely sure that you are feeding your family a healthy, toxin-free diet.
