'Glyphosate is definitely genotoxic' quote

The Soil Association warns that up to 30% of UK bread tested contained glyphosate, the main ingredient in most commercial weedkillers.  Only certified organic bread can guarantee it does not contain glyphosate.

a recent study found that in the UK 7 of 10 people had traces of weedkiller in their urine400% increase in 20 yearsGlyphosate is the most widely sold weedkiller in the world. You may recognise it as the active ingredient in Roundup.
