New Test for Glyphosate Free Residue Certification

This new certification is great news for food manufacturers who want to certify their food with this important quality attribute: food free from Glyphosate residues! Consumers will benefit as well because organic and nonGMO Verified Project labels do not necessarily mean foods are Glyphosate or Roundup-free.  Glyphosate is the most used and abused herbicide in history!  Roundup is a pesticide toxin sprayed on GMO crops as part of the pesticide-dependent GMO crop system,  but many people are unaware it is often used as a pre-harvest crop ripener on nonGMO crops.   In this application, it essentially kills the plant to facilitate harvesting of many conventional crops like beans, peas, chick peas, and other plants.  The Glyphosate toxin remains on the food part of the plant and accumulates on foods, lacking Federal government review or limits on residue accumulation from multiple sprays. So many people have no idea they are regularly ingesting a pesticide toxin (which has also been patented by Monsanto as an antibiotic) at their dining tables.  Over time, the sublethal chemical doses of Glyphosate can lead to a myriad of health problems.
