Glyphosate, labeled a "probable human carcinogen" by the World Health Organization's cancer agency IARC in 2015, has now been revealed to be ubiquitous ...
The European Union is currently in the process of putting restrictions on the use of glyphosate due to health concerns, with member states so far unable to agree on the re-approval of the chemical beyond June 2016.
Glyphosate-containing herbicides are sold under trademarks such as Monsanto's Roundup.
In a unique public testing project carried out by a laboratory at the University of California San Francisco, glyphosate was discovered in 93 percent of urine samples during the early phase of the testing in 2015.
The urine and water testing was organized by The Detox Project and commissioned by the Organic Consumers Association.
