In a new study conducted by Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse “High levels” of glyphosate herbicides in breast milk from 3 out of 10 women tested. Keep in mind that this is a pesticide that Monsanto assured us is perfectly safe. They were recently quoted as saying that “If ingested, glyphosate is excreted rapidly, does not accumulate in body fat or tissues, and does not undergo metabolism in humans. Rather, it is excreted unchanged in the urine.”
Even more alarming is the fact that the women in this study were all at least somewhat aware of GMOs and pesticides and were trying to avoid them in their diet, many of them for more than 2 years now. In spite of this it was still found to be in their breast milk.
“The glyphosate testing commissioned by Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse, with support from Environmental Arts & Research, also analyzed 35 urine samples and 21 drinking water samples from across the US and found levels in urine that were over 10 times higher than those found in a similar survey done in the EU by Friends of the Earth Europe in 2013.”
There’s a lot more to this study. Read the full article on the Moms Across America website.
