How a harmful weed killer finds its way into your children's food
Every day, Canadians are exposed to many chemicals that are linked to adverse health conditions such as cancer, asthma, diabetes and behavioural problems like ADHD. Glyphosate, Canada’s top-selling weed killer and the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, is of particular concern because of its links to cancer.
That’s why we tested common children lunch food products sold in Canada and found glyphosate in 80 per cent of the samples. To enable families to reduce their exposure, the Canadian government needs to take stronger action on harmful chemicals like glyphosate.
