This is a very interesting interview with Dr. Erin Stokes. I have learned a lot about the risks of glyphosate (RoundUp) in the course of researching this topic. The emerging worldwide problem with glyphosate is the profoundly negative impact throughout the food chain.
I think we all like to believe that products are thoroughly tested before coming to the market. We are led to believe that chemicals that are new and foreign to the environment are only beneficial and that risks are low. It is over time that the real risks and damage have started to become apparent.
In this interview, Dr. Stokes discusses her concerns about the risks of glyphosate and she discusses why this is important to MegaFood as a company. As you may know MegaFood uses hundreds of thousands of pounds of fresh food in their products. You may also know that they source organic produce and partner with organic growers in order to provide the cleanest and most nutritious products. We have discussed this in great detail in previous interviews.
What you may not know is what MegaFood has done recently to address this concern over glyphosate in the food chain. MegaFood has made a very serious commitment to this issue. MegaFood is serious about confirming that their products do not contain any glyphosate residue. This is how a company puts it money where its mouth is.
MegaFood is the first supplement manufacturer to be certified glyphosate residue free by the Detox Project. The Detox Project Certification: Glyphosate Residue Free certification verifies that food and supplement products do not contain the world’s most used herbicide. MegaFood also spearheaded and delivered a petition to EPA to examine glyphosate and take steps to ensure safety throughout the food chain. Social responsibility is one important marks of a committed company.
