The widespread use of Roundup in our agricultural practices has infiltrated into our food.
The study was conducted in 2016, so it’s a few years old, but Roundup, or specifically glyphosate (the ingredient that kills weeds) is still being used.
Just because the label says Organic or Gluten Free it doesn’t mean that its free of glyphosate!
The two groups that did this study, Food Democracy Now and The Detox Project, called out the respective corporations and regulatory agencies to take action to address consumer safety.
I know that General Mills’ new Sustainability Officer has started an initiative to “advance regenerative agricultural practices on 1 million acres of farmland by 2030”, and is contracting with farmers who are using regenerative agricultural practices. So that’s a positive step!
This concern, as well as others, are part of the reason that we use regenerative agricultural principles on the ranch to raise our products!
Take away: it’s so important to know where your food came from and how it was raised! Your health depends on it!
