The use of Glyphosate on wheat crops has increased by 400% over the past 20 years. Did you know that commercial wheat products are saturated with glyphosate (read Roundup) to dry the crops prior to harvest. Sometimes the crops is sprayed up to 3 times. Many South American countries, as well as countries in Europe are calling for a ban on the commercial use of Roundup – and are pulling it from the shelves for domestic use. This article, on Natural News, presents a disturbing picture of the use of toxic chemicals, and how the toxicity is being measured in most humans and animals. The article contains a link to a a pdf from the Soil Association. It is a long file, but worth the read if you have time (start at slide 38 for the findings).
Now that the World Health Organization has publicly condemned glyphosate herbicide as “probably carcinogenic to humans,” awareness of this insidious chemical’s contamination of the human food supply is suddenly exploding among health-conscious consumers.
Most people, however, have no awareness at all that commercial wheat products are saturated with glyphosate before harvest. They think glyphosate is only used on genetically modified crops like corn and soybeans. But it turns out that glyphosate is routinely used as a wheat crop drying chemical to speed up harvesting.
