Glyphosate is a commercially popular weed killer that has been shown to cause cancer, endocrine disruption, and liver disease.
The MAA study revealed a staggering 95.3% of the samples tested had detectable glyphosate levels. It was especially prevalent in wheat products,100% of which tested positive for glyphosate.
Of the 220 most harmful pesticides tested, 74% of school lunch samples contained at least one of them. Two notable pesticides were found in high levels:
Thiabendazole (TBZ), an immunosuppressant, was found in 27.9% of samples, especially fruit, such as red and green apples.
Piperonal Butoxide (PBO), which causes birth defects and brain dysfunction, was found in 41% of samples. Its highest levels were found in a hamburger.
Heavy metals, such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury, cause significant harm to children’s brain development.
