Internal emails from the FDA show that their chemist found glyphosate weed killer, a “probable carcinogen”, in every food sample that he tested, except broccoli. Separately, another FDA chemist found that corn contained 6.5 ppm glyphosate, while the legal limit is 5 ppm. A trial is set for June 18 in San Francisco that pits more than 300 farmers, landscapers and gardeners against Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, claiming that exposure to glyphosate in the product caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
