GMO and Monsanto: Glyphosate Weed Killer Found in Human Urine across Europe

People in 18 countries across Europe have been found to have traces of the weed killer glyphosate in their urine, show the results of tests commissioned by Friends of the Earth Europe and released today [1].

The findings raise concerns about increasing levels of exposure to glyphosate-based weed killers, commonly used by farmers, public authorities and gardeners across Europe. The use of glyphosate is predicted to rise further if more genetically modified (GM) crops are grown in Europe [2].

Despite its widespread use, there is currently little monitoring of glyphosate in food, water or the wider environment. This is the first time monitoring has been carried out across Europe for the presence of the weed killer in human bodies.

Where are all the pro-GMO people on this post?

Wow.

Can you imagine the levels in poor Americans and Canadians? Anyone who eats a lot of cheap staples like corn, soy, rice, or canola is in danger.

Thanks, LL.

Thanks Dducks

Agreed.
The levels here are probably much higher than in Europe.

We must #StopMonsanto
