Coffee May Contain Unhealthy Levels of Glyphosate

Over 100 crops that make up the food we eat are genetically modified to resist the poisonous Roundup herbicide that they are sprayed with

Tuesday, November 26, 2019 - More and more of a fuss is being made by the over 45,000 plaintiffs that claim that using Roundup herbicide has caused them cancer. Not very much, on the other hand, is drawing attention to what eating and drinking plants and beans that have been drenched in glyphosate are having on public health. We are aware that crops like wheat, soy, potatoes, corn and many others are grown from seeds that are genetically modified to produce plants that are resistant to Roundup weedkiller. Now coffee is in consumer watchdog crosshairs as the target of investigations as to how much glyphosate coffee contains and what the effects on the public's health could be. Coffee giant Nestles has become concerned over high levels of the potentially carcinogenic chemical being found in the coffee they purchase and are taking steps to limit the amount of glyphosate that is acceptable in the raw beans that are sold to the company. Monsanto Roundup cancer lawyers representing families and individuals harmed from Roundup herbicide use and offer a no obligation free consultation.

According to, "Nestle will tighten quality controls on the coffee beans it buys, after tests flagged levels of the controversial weedkiller glyphosate that were close to regulatory limits. The world's largest coffee company said in a statement Friday that it had found glyphosate residues close to the maximum allowed in some deliveries of green coffee beans." CNN tells us that Nestles monitoring the situation but is not overly concerned at present as the levels of glyphosate in coffee procured from places like Indonesia and Brazil is within the allowable limit and that the company is merely acknowledging that their coffee suppliers should look at alternative methods of weed management. There is a movement afoot by European countries and US states and municipalities to ban the use of glyphosate but economists feel that the disruption in the food supply could be catastrophic and potentially lead to an economic depression. Moreover, nobody could guarantee that weedkiller that replaces glyphosate is any safer.

Earlier in 2019 scientists said that they had discovered unacceptably high levels of glyphosate in children's cereals and breakfast bars. Other experts are starting to link the proliferation of glyphosate spraying with the explosion of diseases like autism and obesity. Researchers at MIT have stated that glyphosate can damage human gut bacteria as the chemical kills weeds by disrupting the "shikimate pathway" a chain of essential proteins plants need to stay in tack to develop normally. While Monsanto claims that glyphosate only affects plant life, Dr. Stephanie Seneff at MIT claims that our gut bacteria also have this protein and by killing our gut bacteria we are damaging our immune systems. Another reason that glyphosate could be destroying gut bacteria and immune systems is that glyphosate is an antibiotic, and Monsanto originally patented it as such. Some in science are starting to link a weakened immune system caused by eating glyphosate riddled food with the explosion of cases of necrotizing fasciitis, or flesh-eating disease that has been occurring on the east coast the the United States.
