“Extreme” Levels of Roundup Detected in Food—Are You Eating This Toxic Contaminant?

Dr. Mercola Waking Times In 2009, a French court found Monsanto guilty of lying; falsely advertising its Roundup herbicide as “biodegradable,” “environmentally friendly” and claiming it “left the soil clean.” We’re now starting to understand just how false such statements are.
