MONSANTO'S ROUND-UP LINKED TO BIRTH DEFECTS, INFERTILITY, AND CANCER -- NOW BEING FOUND IN OUR GROUNDWATER SUPPLY




More bad news about Monsanto's poisonous ROUND-UP - strongly linked to birth defects, infertility and cancer - now being found in our water supply...
"Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, has recently been detected in groundwater samples (Catalonia, Spain) at such high levels that 41 percent of them exceeded the limits of quantification.

Groundwater feeds springs, wells and aquifers – the natural source of drinking water -- and when contaminated, threatens the health of everyone who depends on it.

Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, has long claimed that Roundup is safe and environmentally friendly, but recent studies show it does not readily break down in the environment and is now contaminating our air, rain, water and food.

Glyphosate has been linked to more than 20 adverse health effects, including birth defects, infertility and cancer.

You can reduce your exposure to glyphosate-containing herbicides by avoiding genetically modified food, which are heavily contaminated with it. It’s also a wise choice to have your well or city water tested for contaminants, and install a whole-house filtration system to remove pollutants."
