The hidden weed killer in your BREAD: Commercial wheat doused with cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide right before harvest... and you're eating it!


Glyphosate
(NaturalNews) 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. (Monitor breaking news headlines on glyphosate in real time at Glyphosate.news, part of the new FETCH.news network.)

The very chemical that was designed to kill weeds, in other words, is so toxic to plant life that commercial farmers are using it to accelerate the death of wheat crops, thereby reducing the delay between cutting the crop and delivering it to market.

The upshot is that the commercial wheat products you're buying in the store are saturated with deadly, cancer-causing glyphosate weed killer. This includes:

• Commercial loaves of bread sold at the grocery store

• Donuts, cakes and pastries

• Pasta products (spaghetti, noodles, etc., that are made with wheat)

• Hamburger and hotdog buns

• Wheat-based breakfast cereals such as wheat flakes

• Biscuits, scones and flat bread

Essentially, much of the entire non-organic wheat-based food supply is now heavily contaminated with glyphosate, a toxic chemical now widely recognized as being genotoxic (damaging to your DNA and potentially leading to cancer). To protect yourself from glyphosate, it is crucial that you only purchase and consume certified organic wheat products.

Wheat, by the way, contains gluten. It is my belief that many of the complaints people have been voicing against gluten are really symptoms of glyphosate toxicity and not directly caused by gluten itself. This issue needs serious further investigation, but a simple way to test this yourself is to switch to organic wheat products and see how those work for you.

See the full presentation on glyphosate and wheat products in this PDF presentation document from the Soil Association.

Glyphosate poisoning of wheat crops has increased 400% in the last two decades

"[N]ew figures analysed by the Soil Association were released at a scientific briefing in London showing Glyphosate use in UK farming has increased by 400% in the last 20 years and it's one of the three pesticides regularly found in routine testing of British bread - appearing in up to 30% of samples tested by the Defra committee on Pesticide Residues in Food (PRiF)," reports the Soil Association.

Because of how widely glyphosate now contaminates wheat products, the Soil Association is calling for a ban on its use as a pre-harvest weed killer. "The Soil Association is now calling for a UK ban on the use of Glyphosate sprayed on UK wheat as a pre-harvest weedkiller and its use to kill the crop to ripen it faster," says the association.

Many wheat crops are sprayed multiple times with toxic glyphosate right before harvest

Wheat crops are sprayed with glyphosate not just once, but often three times before harvest. This douses the wheat with a known cancer-causing chemical, saturating the crop and causing the glyphosate to be present in the finished food products made from the wheat.

Peter Melchett, Soil Association policy director, explained: "If Glyphosate ends up in bread it's impossible for people to avoid it, unless they are eating organic... This is why the Soil Association is calling for the immediate ending of the use of Glyphosate sprays on wheat destined for use in bread."

The glyphosate sprayed on wheat crops ends up in your food. When you eat glyphosate-sprayed wheat, you inevitably absorb this cancer-causing chemical into your own body. "[T]his chemical doesn't break down immediately, and can follow the grain into food manufacturing processes," explains the Soil Association. "Tests by the Defra committee on Pesticide Residues in Food (PRiF) have found that as much as 30% of UK bread contained this weedkiller. UK wheat will also be used for lots of other foods including biscuits."

If you're eating non-organic wheat, you're swallowing weed killer!

The bottom line? If you're eating products derived from wheat that isn't organic, you're probably eating cancer-causing weed killer. In the UK, a recent study found that 70% of the population had traces of glyphosate in their urine.

In the United States, the corporate-sellout EPA has known for decades that glyphosate causes cancer, but they actively hid this data from the public.

Because it's so widely used in conventional agriculture, glyphosate is found in 75% of air and rain samples. This means you'll even get glyphosate raining down on your own home garden! (Although the resulting concentration is thousands of times less than what you'd find in commercial crops that are directly sprayed with it.)

If there was ever a reason to buy organic bread, this is it!

That's why I'm now issuing a Natural News Food Contamination Red Alert and urging all Natural News readers to immediately stop buying and consuming all non-organic wheat products.

From this day forward, limit your consumption of wheat products exclusively to certified organic. Glyphosate is not allowed to be sprayed on certified organic crops, and although there is some cross-contamination due to wind drift, organic foods will consistently contain far less glyphosate than non-organic foods.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose descendents include Africans and American Indians. He self-identifies as being of American Indian heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
