Cancer-causing Glyphosate Herbicide Found in Urine of 93% of Americans
The Detox Project, using laboratories at the University of California San Francisco, has found the presence of glyphosate, the most used herbicide in the world, in the urine of 93% of the American public during a unique testing project that started in 2015.
From the project’s public statement on their website:
Glyphosate, labeled a ‘Probable human carcinogen’ by the World Health Organization’s cancer agency IARC in 2015, has now been revealed to be ubiquitous in the first ever comprehensive and validated LC/MS/MS testing project to be carried out across America. Glyphosate-containing herbicides are sold under trademarks such as Monsanto’s ‘Roundup.’
In a unique public testing project carried out by a laboratory at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), glyphosate was discovered in 93% of urine samples during the early phase of the testing in 2015.
Glyphosate was found in 93% of the 131 urine samples tested at an average level of 3.096 parts per billion (PPB). Children had the highest levels with an average of 3.586 PPB.
The regions with the highest levels were the West and the Midwest with an average of 3.053 PPB and 3.050 PPB respectively.
Glyphosate has been linked to cancer by the World Health Organization, and lawsuits against companies using the herbicide, which is prevalent in most conventional foods, have begun.
Selenium & sulfur (MSM) helps detox from glyphosate, etc..
