You mean they haven’t been all this time?

Heads should roll. Prosecutions for corruption, negligence and malfeasance should go forward.

FDA to Start Testing for Glyphosate in Food

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the nation’s chief food safety regulator, plans to start testing certain foods for residues of the world’s most widely used weed killer after the World Health Organization’s cancer experts last year declared the chemical a probable human carcinogen.

The FDA’s move comes amid growing public concern about the safety of the herbicide known as glyphosate, and comes after the U.S Government Accountability Office (GAO)rebuked the agency for failing to do such assessments and for not disclosing that short-coming to the public.

Private companies, academics, and consumer groups have recently launched their own testing and claim to have detected glyphosate residues in breast milk, honey, cereal, wheat flour, soy sauce, infant formula, and other substances.

    Golly, I thought the FDA was supposed to test the health effects of toxic chemicals before they approved them. Silly me.

    I never knew NZ were so bad, I always thought it was a good source of food. As for the UK it’s pretty bad, but as we had come to realised our government just change the rules and don’t tell anyone so who’s knows! Thats why I try and buy organic but it’s extremely pricy and a big struggle :)
