Doused with Cancer-causing
right Before Harvest...
and You are Eating It!
Now that the World Health Organization
(WHO) has publicly condemned
glyphosate herbicide as "probably
carcinogenic to humans," awareness of this insidious chemical's
contamination of the human food supply is suddenly exploding among
Most people, however, have no awareness at all that commercial wheat
products are saturated with glyphosate before harvest.
They think glyphosate is only used on
genetically modified crops like corn and soybeans. But it turns out
that glyphosate is routinely used as a wheat crop drying chemical to
speed up harvesting. (Monitor breaking news headlines on glyphosate

The very chemical that was designed to kill weeds, in other words,
is so toxic to plant life that commercial farmers are using it to
accelerate the death of wheat crops, thereby reducing the delay
between cutting the crop and delivering it to market.
The upshot is that the commercial wheat products you're buying in
the store are saturated with deadly, cancer-causing glyphosate weed
Commercial loaves of bread
sold at the grocery store
Donuts, cakes and pastries
Pasta products (spaghetti,
noodles, etc., that are made with wheat)
Hamburger and hotdog buns
Wheat-based breakfast cereals
such as wheat flakes
Biscuits, scones and flat bread
Essentially, much of the entire
non-organic wheat-based food supply is now heavily contaminated with
glyphosate, a toxic chemical now widely recognized as being
genotoxic (damaging to your DNA and potentially leading to cancer).
To protect yourself from glyphosate, it
is crucial that you only purchase and consume certified organic
Wheat, by the way, contains gluten. It is my belief that many of the
complaints people have been voicing against gluten are really
symptoms of glyphosate toxicity and not directly caused by gluten
itself. This issue needs serious further investigation, but a simple
way to test this yourself is to switch to organic wheat products
and see how those work for you.
See the full presentation on glyphosate and wheat products in "Glyphosate
in Our Bread", from the Soil Association.
Glyphosate poisoning of
wheat crops has increased 400% in the last two decades
"[N]ew figures analyzed by the Soil Association were released at
a scientific briefing in London showing Glyphosate use in UK
farming has increased by 400% in the last 20 years and it's one
of the three pesticides regularly found in routine testing of
British bread - appearing in up to 30% of samples tested by the
Defra committee on Pesticide Residues in Food (PRiF),"

Glyphosate sprayed on UK wheat as a pre-harvest weedkiller and

Many wheat crops are
sprayed multiple times with toxic glyphosate right before harvest
Wheat crops are sprayed with glyphosate
not just once, but often three times before harvest.
This douses the wheat with a known
cancer-causing chemical, saturating the crop and causing the
glyphosate to be present in the finished food products made from the
Peter Melchett, Soil Association policy director, explained:
"If Glyphosate ends up in bread it's
impossible for people to avoid it, unless they are eating
organic... This is why the Soil Association is calling for the
immediate ending of the use of Glyphosate sprays on wheat
destined for use in bread."
The glyphosate sprayed on wheat crops
ends up in your food.
When you eat glyphosate-sprayed wheat, you
inevitably absorb this
cancer-causing chemical into your own body.
"[T]his chemical doesn't break down
immediately, and can follow the grain into food manufacturing
processes," explains the
"Tests by the Defra committee on
Pesticide Residues in Food (PRiF) have found that as much as 30%
of UK bread contained this weedkiller. UK wheat will also be
used for lots of other foods including biscuits."
If you're eating
non-organic wheat, you're swallowing weed killer!
The bottom line?
If you're eating products derived from
wheat that isn't organic, you're probably eating cancer-causing weed
killer. In the UK, a recent study found that
70% of the population had traces of glyphosate in their urine.
In the United States, the corporate-sellout EPA has
known for decades that glyphosate causes cancer, but they
actively hid this data from the public.
Because it's so widely used in conventional agriculture, glyphosate
found in 75% of air and rain samples. This means you'll even get
glyphosate raining down on your own home garden! (Although the
resulting concentration is thousands of times less than what you'd
find in commercial crops that are directly sprayed with it.)
If there was ever a reason to buy organic bread, this is it!
That's why I'm now issuing a Natural News Food Contamination Red
Alert and urging all Natural News readers to immediately stop
buying and consuming all non-organic wheat products.
From this day forward, limit your consumption of wheat products
exclusively to certified organic.
Glyphosate is not allowed to be sprayed
on certified organic crops, and although there is some
cross-contamination due to wind drift, organic foods will
consistently contain far less glyphosate than non-organic foods.
