If you participated in the glyphosate test project launched last year by The Detox Project (formerly Feed The World) and Organic Consumers Association, you probably failed.
A staggering 93 percent of Americans tested positive for glyphosate, according to the test results, announced yesterday (May 25, 2016).
What makes that figure even more alarming is that many of you who sent in urine samples for testing probably eat more organic than non-organic food. Which suggests that either your organic food has been contaminated and/or you’re being exposed to glyphosate via unknown sources.
Worse yet? Children had the highest levels.The testing, carried out by a laboratory at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), was the first-ever comprehensive and validated LC/MS/MS testing project to be carried out across America. According to the results, people who live in the west and mid-west tested higher than those living in other regions of the country.It’s way past time for the world to wake up and smell the poison.

Dated several days ago but this particular link is a very good perspective on the situation and the report. Organic consumer organizations have your best interests at heart. You don’t have to blindly trust them, do your searching and see for yourself.
Here’s more about OAC
Organic Consumers Association (OCA)
The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) is an online and grassroots non-profit 501(c)3 public interest organization campaigning for health, justice, and sustainability. The OCA deals with crucial issues of food safety, industrial agriculture, genetic engineering, children’s health, corporate accountability, Fair Trade, environmental sustainability and other key topics. We are the only organization in the US focused exclusively on promoting the views and interests of the nation’s estimated 50 million organic and socially responsible consumers.
The OCA represents over two million online and on the ground network members, including several thousand businesses in the natural foods and organic marketplace. Our US and international policy board is broadly representative of the organic, family farm, environmental, and public interest community.
When it comes to information about food, who would you believe more: OCA, TV and other media commercials, family & friends,
Just a word of caution that family and friends are often influenced by media… do your own research and maybe you can return the favor and give them some good, vetted, advice.
