90% Of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Tests Positive For Monsanto’s Glyphosphate


July 26, 2017. Baxter Dmitry. Health, News.

Over 90% of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors test positive for Monsanto’s glyphosphate, according to a new study by the Organic Consumers Association (OCA).

While the levels of glyphosate were below the legal limit set by the Environmental Protection Agency, the Organic Consumers Association argues that any presence of the carcinogenic pesticide product is misleading, unnecessary and very dangerous.

“It’s time for Ben & Jerry’s to announce it will immediately begin transitioning to 100-percent organic,” using zero pesticides in production, the OCA said in a post on its website. “Otherwise conscious consumers have no choice but to launch a national and, if necessary, international protest campaign and boycott.“

MSN reports: The OCA has called for Ben & Jerry’s to stop labeling its ice creams as “natural” because the brand’s dairy cows consume genetically-engineered corn (the brand told the New York Times that it is working to find all-natural alternatives). Add-ins, such as peanut butter or cookie dough, containing ingredients that have been sprayed with the weedkiller may also be the source of the glyphosate in the ice creams, according to the Times.

Glyphosate was listed as a carcinogen in California earlier this month. The World Health Organization has also listed glyphosphate as a “probable carcinogen.” Monsanto continues to fight the charges against its money-making active ingredient, however, arguing that glyphosphate is fit for human consumption.

Despite the continued debate, many customers simply do not want to have a herbicide ingredient in their food. Soon after the Times published its article on the OCA’s ice cream test, the brand began receiving complaints and boycott threats on social media.

Makes me wonder how many of the other 'big boys' such as hagendasz etc, even the giant retailers like tesco's own etc also contain is filth. And we're tipping it down our kids' throats.....and were globally suffering spiking rates of autism, cancer, autoimmune collapse, countless allergies.....oh shut me up

There's a method in the madness Tommo - it all boils down to the implementation of Agenda 21 and of course, the sicker you make the people the more money Big Pharma make. It IS "BLOODY obvious". The world is run by psychopaths - that's obvious by the lack of empathy and feeling displayed by those who murder, starve and make children suffer by the wars they rage against the 'innocents'. AND of course it supports the Industrial Defence Industry. Sickening.
