The allowable level of glyphosate should be the lowest possible. Testing has turned up glyphosate in samples of honey, soy sauce, infant formula and even breast milk. Studies have shown that higher glyphosate levels during pregnancy correlated with with lower adjusted birth weights and earlier births, including premature births. Numerous other studies link glyphosate to different forms of cancer, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. This toxic chemical does not belong in our food and water – especially that of pregnant women. Please set levels to keep glyphosate out of our food and water.
