FDA to Begin Testing for Pesticide Glyphosate, Probable Human Carcinogen, in Food

PORTLAND, Ore. - The Food and Drug Administration will finally begin testing food for glyphosate, the world’s most commonly used pesticide, according to Civil Eats. This marks the first time that a U.S. agency will routinely test for glyphosate residue in food. It comes after the Government Accountability Office released a report condemning the FDA for failing even to disclose its failure to test for glyphosate in its annual pesticide residue report.
