FDA Finds Glyphosate Herbicide in U.S. Honey

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:

It took years of begging and pleading, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally agreed in February to start testing for glyphosate in food. The agency announced just a few days ago that U.S. honey samples tested positive for the chemical, which is an ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. [1]

The agency checks foods for pesticides every year, but for decades had refused to test for glyphosate. The decision to start checking for the chemical was made only after many independent researchers started conducting their own testing on various foods 2 years ago and found glyphosate in flour, cereal, oatmeal, and a host of other products.

The discovery of glyphosate – declared a probable human carcinogen in 2015 by the World Health Organization (WHO) – lends more credence to a growing number of studies that show the chemical is pervasive, as honey is not produced with the use of the chemical – at least not knowingly.
