While the FDA does testing on a lot of the things that we use, not all of the information they collect is available for us to see. Everything we ingest has been tested on at one point or another, right? Or has it been?
According to some documents that the Guardian, along with the help of the organization US Right to Know last year some very important documents became available to the public through the Freedom of Information Act but you most likely have not heard about them. In one of those released documents, FDA chemist Chris Thompson wrote to his colleagues that the only thing he had not found Glyphosate in was broccoli.
“I have brought wheat crackers, granola cereal, and cornmeal from home and there’s a fair amount in all of them.”
Another important tidbit mentioned in these released documents is that when speaking about their findings this is written:
“Re the over the tolerance finding of glyphosate in corn, the author of the glyphosate method (Narong
Chamkasem) did publish such a finding in one of his LIBs he wrote (attached). While developing his method he
tested grain corn and found one sample to contain 6.5 ppm. The corn he tested was not an official sample,
therefore no regulatory status can be assigned. The LIB has been made public through FOIA and it is the source
of these requests. I am not sure if Narong published a journal article with this finding. I will ask him.” Now to most this would not be important but if you know anything about Glyphosate regulations the legal limit is 5.0 parts per million, this meaning the things that were ‘not officially tested’ were in fact over the limit and yet nothing was done about it.
They try to get around this by saying that because it was not an official sample but of course, that is complete bullshit regardless. To go over the rest of these documents please click here. Do your best to be as informed as possible on the things you are ingesting. Glyphosate (RoundUp) is very toxic even in the legal amount of ppm. It has proven to be deadly to human cells and causes things like cancer.
]What do you think about all of this? I for one am not as shocked as most people would be, in this day and age everything is made to kill us.
