Recently Monsanto was court ordered to pay almost 300 million to a groundskeeper who used glyphosate while working for a school. He had developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma because of the glyphosate and through winning this case has now opened the door for hundreds of cases like his own.

Chances are, you’ve heard about his story but if you haven’t you can click here to learn all about it. If you didn’t already know, Glyphosate is the main ingredient in Roundup and is something people all across the world use. Chances are you’ve gotten your hands on it a time or two without even realizing the damage it could and does do.

Glyphosate has been listed as carcinogenic for quite some time now and is even banned in some places. It is toxic and many studies have proven as such. Monsanto has been stating for years on end that glyphosate is safe all the while going against research. Glyphosate residue can be found in most of the foods we consume commonly and when it comes to the western diet, you can’t usually get away from it.

Dr. Mercola wrote as follows on his website in regards to Roundup and cancer:

To get a bit more in-depth on just one of the chronic diseases highlighted by Dr. Seneff, consider the reports showing that glyphosate may stimulate hormone-dependent cancers even at extremely low “environmentally relevant” amounts.

In a study published last year, researchers concluded that glyphosate is a xenoestrogen that is functionally similar to estradiol, the most potent human estrogen, and concentrations in the parts-per-trillion range had carcinogenic effects.4

Adding insult to injury—in light of the fact that more than 90 percent of soybeans grown in the US are genetically modified—they also found that the phytoestrogen genistein, naturally found in soybeans, heightened the estrogenic effects when combined with glyphosate. According to the authors:

“This study implied that the additive effect of glyphosate and genistein in postmenopausal women may induce cancer cell growth. In this present in vitro study, we showed an estrogenicity of pure glyphosate…

Furthermore, this study demonstrated the additive estrogenic effects of glyphosate and genistein which implied that the use of glyphosate-contaminated soybean products as dietary supplements may pose a risk of breast cancer because of their potential additive estrogenicity.”

Below you will find a list of some of the products and foods in general that have been found to contain traces of glyphosate Waking Times has managed to really narrow things down. These are things you may want to stay away from or at least pay attention to the sources. Considering the controversy in regards to roundup and the things coming out about glyphosate, you should be better safe than sorry.
