To find out, we tested 26 popular beers in our mass spec laboratory, using LC-MS-MS instrumentation that's sensitive below 1 ppb. The findings may surprise you, because they contradict what the media is dishonestly reporting about glyphosate in beer. (See full chart of results and video below...)
We began to suspect the media was being dishonest about glyphosate in beer when we saw the media claiming beer products "tested positive" for glyphosate. But "testing positive" is scientifically meaningless, because it says nothing about the concentration of glyphosate in the beer products. Just one molecule of glyphosate could qualify as "testing positive," yet one molecule by itself has zero risk of harm. Like other agricultural chemicals, glyphosate's toxicity is directly proportional to its concentration in your blood. This is determined by the concentration of glyphosate in the products you are consuming or putting on your skin.
When media outlets don't report the concentrations but say a product "tests positive" for glyphosate, they are being deceptive and utterly non-scientific. That's not surprising, considering that nearly all mainstream media journalists are scientifically illiterate, which is why they've all been stupidly brainwashed to believe that carbon dioxide is bad for the planet. In truth, CO2 is the "miracle molecule" for plant life that's re-greening the planet, even according to NASA.
Here's a video frame showing our triple quad mass spec instrument, alongside the beers being tested:
For glyphosate and other pesticides or herbicides, by the way, food scientists describe concentrations in units of micrograms per milliliter. (?g / ml). A microgram is one millionth of a gram. A milliliter is one one-thousandth of a liter. One ?g / ml equates to 1 ppm in common lab science language. So when someone says a pesticide is present in water at 1 ppm, what they means is 1 ?g /ml. (Note carefully that ?g is a unit of mass, while ml is a unit of volume, which means this expression is mass / volume, meaning it's the mass of the herbicide that's present in a volume of liquid.)
A nanogram per milliliter (ng / ml) is 1 ppb, or one part per billion. If a liquid such as beer or water contains 1 ng / ml of glyphosate, it means there is 1 part per billion of glyphosate in the liquid.
Glyphosate herbicide purchased at retail outlets for use on lawns and landscape applications is often 41% glyphosate, which is equal to 41 parts per hundred, or 410 parts per thousand, or 410,000 parts per million, or 410,000,000 parts per billion. (Those are all equivalent expressions.)
If you spill just one milliliter of 41% glyphosate on your skin, you are exposed to 410,000 ?g of glyphosate, which goes right through your skin and into your blood. In contrast, if you drink a full liter of beer that contains just 10 ppb of glyphosate, your total exposure is just 10 ?g.
Thus, you would have to drink 41,000 liters of beer to equal the same glyphosate exposure as spilling 1 milliliter of glyphosate concentrate on your skin. (A milliliter is just a few drops.)

P.S. CWC Labs will soon announce glyphosate testing to the public.
Here's the full chart of what we found. Note that all of these results would essentially be considered "zero" by food scientists:
Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called "Food Forensics"), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics.
Mike Adams also serves as 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.
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.
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.
