But the internal documents obtained by the Guardian show the FDA has had trouble finding any food that does not carry traces of the pesticide.

Weedkiller found in granola and crackers, internal FDA emails show

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been testing food samples for residues of glyphosate, the active ingredient in hundreds of widely used herbicide products, for two years, but has not yet released any official results.

What the hell are you feeding your family?

In America the citizens are treated a lot like the livestock, kept dumb and fattened up enough so that they won’t revolt, and can be led off to any sorts of metaphorical slaughters the powers that be can concoct.  They are shoveled tainted agriculture, tainted energy supplies, tainted meats and fish as well — let’s not forget all that ocean pollution, including Fukushima’s ongoing radiation leaks.

 

Why 160 Countries Say No to US Meats

“Just a few months ago, Russia had joined the rest of the world in banning the importation of American meat. 159 countries took their stance against the meat products that are said to contain drugs which stimulate growth. This issue is about the health dangers of ractopamine that might be the cause of increasing number of Russians dying from cardiovascular disease every year.”

 

Russia to Ban U.S. Meat Over Ractopamine Residues 

“Russia will ban U.S. pork and beef imports starting this month over concerns about ractopamine, a veterinary drug commonly used in North America to boost growth and leanness that is increasingly controversial overseas, according to Russian media reports.”

 

American Beef: Why is it Banned in Europe?

“More than a decade ago, Roy Hertz, then director of endocrinology at the National Cancer Institute and a leading authority on hormonal cancers, warned of the carcinogenic risks of estrogenic additives which can cause imbalances and increases in natural hormone levels. Hertz warned against the uncontrolled use of these potent carcinogens. No dietary levels of hormones are safe and a dime-sized piece of meat contains-billions of millions of molecules.”

I haven’t even touched on MAD COW DISEASE, which is not tested here by law.  If you read Howard Lyman’s book, you probably won’t eat any meat for a few years, and then maybe organic grass fed only.

Washington’s Blog keeps from barfing long enough to look into the genetic mutant SALMON now scheduled for grocery store shelves. I guess a lot of people will swallow just about anything.

This is food fraud, and classic corruption by the FDA.

It is the same type of collusion between government and big business which has caused the financial crisis, the Fukushima nuclear meltdown, the Gulf oil spill and other major disasters  (and see this; and number 9).

As we noted last year:

Given that genetically engineered foods have been linked to obesity, cancer, liver failure, infertility and all sorts of other diseases (brief videos here and here), the burden should be on the … gmo producers to prove it’s safe.
