Tell the USDA to test food for glyphosate
To Bruce Summers, Acting Administrator for the Pesticide Data Program, and Michael Young, Acting Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture:
In April, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) was set to begin testing foods for glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup. But just before testing was going to start, those plans were cancelled and agency officials now say foods will not be tested for glyphosate this year.
The USDA is tasked with the job of protecting our health and the safety of our food. We simply cannot know whether our food is safe without testing for glyphosate, the most widely-used herbicide in U.S. history, which has now been linked to serious health problems.
Please move forward with the tests of glyphosate as originally planned.
