FDA-Registered Lab Finds Alarming Levels Of Glyphosate In Major Food Brands
Infographic – herbs-info.com Info – foodbabe.com

In the United States, glyphosate was deemed safe for public use in 1974 and since then has been applied on crops by farmers. The most popular product that contains glyphosate as a main ingredient is Roundup, a product made by Monsanto. It is marketed not only towards farmers, but also heavily promoted towards people who have gardens at home. However, glyphosate, may not be as safe as the marketing claims suggest. Different studies have actually linked this herbicide to cancer and other health problems. [1]


According to a 2013 study published by Thongprakaisang, et. al., glyphosate caused the growth of breast cancer cells in humans. Glyphosate was found to be an “endocrine-disruptor”, meaning it has detrimental effects on the body’s hormones, specifically on estrogen. High levels of estrogen is known to cause hormone-dependent breast cancer, where in breast cancer cells multiply and spread in the presence of estrogen. [2]

According to an FDA- registered laboratory, popular American food contained worryingly high levels of glyphosate. Recent evidence suggests that glyphosate can pose a threat to human health at very low levels of 0.1 parts per billion (ppb). The laboratory found that popular snacks sold in most supermarkets had glyphosate levels between 289.47 and 1,125.3 ppb. [3]



Other countries all over the world, specifically the European Union, are more strict regarding glyphosate exposure – with the “safe” limit placed at 0.3 mg per kilogram of body weight per day compared to the US 1.75 mg/kg/bw/day. Here are the values of glyphosate content reported by the laboratory:

General Mills products:
– Original Cheerios: 1125.3 ppb
– Honey Nut Cheerios: 670.2 ppb
– Wheaties: 31.2 ppb
– Trix: 9.9 ppb
– Annie’s cookies: 55.13 ppb

Kellogg’s products:
– Cornflakes: 78.9 ppb
– Raisin Bran: 82.9 ppb
– Organic Promise: 24.9 ppb
– Special K: 74.6 ppb
– Frosted Flakes: 72.8 ppb
– Original Cheez-It: 24.6 ppb
– Whole grain Cheez-It: 36.25 ppb
– Kashi cookies: 275.58 ppb

Nabisco products:
– Ritz crackers: 270.24 ppb
– Triscuit: 89.68 ppb
– Original Oreo: 289.47 ppb
– Oreo Double Stuf Chocolate: 140.90 ppb
– Oreo Double Stuf Golden: 215.40 ppb

PepsiCo products:
– Stacy’s Simply Naked Pita Chips: 812.53 ppb
– Lay’s Kettle Cooked chips: 452.71 ppb
– Doritos Cool Ranch: 481.27 ppb
– Original Fritos: 174.71 ppb


Campbell Soup Company products:
– Goldfish crackers original: 18.40 ppb
– Goldfish crackers colors: 8.02 ppb
– Goldfish crackers whole grain: 24.58 ppb

Other products:
– Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Crème Pies: 264.28 ppb
– Lucy’s gluten-free Oatmeal Cookies: 452.44 ppb
– Whole Foods 365 Organic Golden Round Crackers: 119.12 ppb
– Back to Nature Crispy Cheddar Crackers: 372.22 ppb

As you can see, all these values are well-above 0.1 ppb of glyphosate. You may even have several of these snacks inside your pantry right now. However, don’t assume that other brands are necessarily “clean”. In general, it is to be expected that non-organic products contain traces of pesticides/herbicides.

Remember, these are real results of an actual study by a laboratory – Anresco Laboratories founded in 1943 to ensure food quality.

Because of the demand for low-cost food, many corners have been cut in terms of food production – often in the name of safety. Instead of purchasing these snacks, opt for organic fruits and vegetables instead.

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

>> Click here to find out about them now

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:

    Can you share the name of the lab that did the testing?

  • By admin, February 15, 2019 @ 9:46 pm

    We did. It is in the reference [3] on the article:

    Anresco Laboratories was founded by Dr. Sylvan
    Eisenberg in 1943, with the goal of ensuring food
    quality. Their food safety analyses span a variety
    of areas, including Pesticides, Microbiology and
    Nutritional Labeling. Since 1980, Anresco has been
    focused on pesticide and herbicide testing. They
    perform routine testing on imported samples
    detained by the FDA, samples to be exported,
    as well as domestic samples for many major US
    companies. In addition to foods, they have also
    tested herbal products, water and soil.
    LC/MS/MS is the method used for testing for
    glyphosate levels in food products. LC/MS/MS
    stands for liquid chromatography tandem mass
    spectrometry (LC-MS/MS), which “has been well
    recognized by regulators and scientists worldwide
    as the “gold standard” for both quantification and
    semi-quantitative screening of food contaminants,
    such as pesticide residues.” 29
    Their instrumentation includes Gas Chromatography
    (GC-FID, GC-FPD, GC-TSD, GC-ECD, GCMS,
    GCMSMS) and Liquid Chromatography (LC-FD, LCUV, LC-RID, LC-MSMS).
    The laboratory is an independent, ISO-17025
    accredited, FDA-registered private laboratory
    headquartered in San Francisco, U.S.A.
    Anresco Laboratories Co-laboratory Director Vu
    Lam says, “We use LC/MS/MS to detect Glyphosate
    and AMPA. With our modifications to various
    methods, we are able to detect many levels of
    contaminants in food products at levels as low as 5
    ppb, and even lower.”

    Thank you, and what is the study that was done showing “Recent evidence suggests that glyphosate can pose a threat to human health at very low levels of 0.1 parts per billion (pub).” ?

  • By admin, February 21, 2019 @ 2:39 am

    This is also in reference [3]

  • By Tracie Blackstock, April 27, 2019 @ 1:19 pm

    Are there lab results for alternative organic foods that we assume are healthier? Is there a comparison to show the difference.
