Glyphosate
(NaturalNews) Residues of the toxic herbicide glyphosate can be found on many popular breakfast foods, some of them in levels higher than maximums set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), according to an analysis conducted by the Alliance for Natural Health USA (ANH-USA).

The foods found to be tainted included breakfast cereals, eggs and bagels. Additionally, the researchers discovered evidence that glyphosate can accumulate in the human body.

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, the top selling herbicide in the world. Roundup was first introduced in 1974, but its use did not explode until the introduction of the first Roundup-resistant genetically modified (GM) crops in the 1990s.

Residue on nearly half of foods tested

When it was introduced, glyphosate was touted as biodegradable and harmless to humans and the environment alike. Accepting this claim, neither the FDA Pesticide Residue Monitoring Program and the USDA Pesticide Data Program ever bothered to collect information on glyphosate or its presence in food products.

Numerous studies have in fact demonstrated dangerous effects from low-level glyphosate exposure, including hormonal disruption, organ damage and birth defects. But regulators largely ignored these risks — until in 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate as a probable carcinogen.

Following the IARC's warning, the FDA announced it would begin testing for glyphosateresidue on corn and soybeans — nearly all of which, in the United States, are GM. Yet according to ANH-USA, this will overlook many foods likely exposed to large amounts of Roundup. So the group contracted an independent, accredited lab to test both conventional and organic versions of 12 different breakfast foods: corn flakes, instant oatmeal, cream of wheat, flour, bread, bagels, potatoes, frozen hash browns, eggs, yogurt, and both dairy and non-dairy creamers. Of the 24 samples, 10 came back with detectable glyphosate residue. From most residue to least, these were: instant oatmeal, whole wheat bagels, whole wheat bread, cream of wheat cereal, organic eggs, organic bagels, organic whole wheat bread, organic dairy creamer, large eggs and organic soy creamer.

Half of these contained levels above the EPA's Allowable Daily Intake (ADI) of 1.75 mg per kg of bodyweight. Even among these, there was wide variation: Organic eggs contained 179 parts per billion (ppb) of residue; bagels and bread contained 400–500 ppb; and instant oatmeal contained more than 1,300 ppb.

The only way to avoid poison is to eat 100% natural food from a small farmer you know or from your own garden. No GMO

And keep up with body cleansing to purge toxins and parasites. Fasting is also important is one can do it.
