Some of the most popular orange juice brands found to be contaminated with glyphosate weedkiller

(Natural News) Many people think of orange juice as a health food because it comes from fruit. Although it’s undoubtedly better to eat the whole fruit from a nutritional standpoint, drinking orange juice certainly isn’t bad, right? The scary truth is that if you consume one of the many popular brands of orange juice recently found to be contaminated with glyphosate, you could be drinking poison and possibly putting yourself at a greater risk of developing cancer.

 

A nonprofit group known as Moms Across America recently sent some of the most popular orange juice brands in the U.S. to be tested for glyphosate, a known carcinogen. While many of the brands had lower levels of glyphosate than what they found in similar tests the year before – including Tropicana, Kirkland Signature, and Minute Maid – it was present nevertheless.

 




However, one brand in particular stood out: Florida’s Natural was the highest among all brands tested, with results that were nearly three times those seen in test results from a year prior that were provided to another organization, going from an effective glyphosate level of 5.11 ppb to 14.42. The brand is currently facing a lawsuit for misleading the public. According to the plaintiff, their claim that the product is natural is false because the juice contains glyphosate.

 

Why are orange growers still using this known carcinogen?

 

When you consider the fact that the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen several years ago, it’s hard to believe that orange growers continue to use the chemical, knowing it will make its way into the juice that many families drink on a regular basis. Moms Across America has asked the companies involved to make changes to no avail, and now they are publicizing the results in hopes of drawing attention to the danger.
