Chemical Glyphosate/Roundup Found in California Wine
The action group, Moms Across America, posted in a press release that they received results from an anonymous supporter which commissioned Microbe Inotech Lab of St. Louis, Missouri that showed all ten of the wines tested positive for the chemical glyphosate, the declared “active” ingredient in Roundup weedkiller and 700 other glyphosate-based herbicides.
The press release also said, “It is important to note that the detection of glyphosate is an indicator of the presence of many other co-formulants in glyphosate-based herbicides which have recently been shown by French scientist Seralini’s team to be endocrine hormone disruptors and to be 1,000 times more toxic than glyphosate alone.”
It is important to note that the tests on the wines were not a scientific study, but point to the fact that independent testing is necessary to keep everyone safe.
