How Widespread Is Roundup®? Is It In Your Urine?

by Catherine J. Frompovich, Activist Post:

According to urine tests taken in the European Union rather recently, 48 members of the EU Parliament volunteered to have their urine tested and ALL tests came back positive! [1]

According to the article titled “We are pissed off” [1],

The Biocheck lab in Leipzig that carried out the ‘Elisa test’ concluded: “All participants excreted glyphosate by urine. This means that glyphosate could be also a health problem of EU-parliament members.”  [….}

On average, the MEPs had 1.7 micrograms/litre of glyphosate in their urine, 17 times higher than the European drinking water norm (0.1 microgram/litre). This means that everyone we tested was way above the limit for residues of pesticides in drinking water.

Additionally, No less than 99.6% of all citizens who took part in this survey had higher residue levels. This means that virtually all citizens are contaminated with glyphosate. [….]

Its use around the world keeps increasing, especially due to its link to genetically engineered glyphosate-tolerant crops. Since the introduction of “Roundup Ready” in 1996, glyphosate use has increased 15-fold. In 2014, global use was 825,000 tonnes of which 76% was for agricultural use and 24% non-agricultural uses (e.g. public gardens, railways, private gardens).

What’s happening elsewhere, like in California, USA?
