Glyphosphate Contamination Widespread in USA

2014 Research

We have told you before in Cancer Watch of research into how glyphosphate is NOT broken down by the soil, how it gets into the food chain and damages essential bacteria in the soil and in the gut; and how it is linked to p53 damage and increased cancer risk. No problems at all, really.

The latest study suggests that the presence is spiralling out of control in the USA…

“The most comprehensive research to date on environmental glyphosate levels exposes the widespread contamination of soil and water in the US, as well as its water treatment system. Looking at a wide range of geographical locations, researchers from the US Geological Survey (USGS) analysed 3,732 water and sediment samples and 1 081 quality assurance samples collected between 2001 and 2010 from 38 states in the US and the district of Colombia. They found glyphosate in 39.4 % of samples (1,470 out of 3 732) and its metabolite AMPA (aminomethylphosphonic acid) in 55 % of samples. Water samples included streams, groundwater, ditches and drains, large rivers, soil water, lakes, ponds and wetlands, precipitation, soil and sediment, and waste water treatment plants.”
