Glyphosate, we filter that.
Glyphosate (N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine) is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop desiccant. It is an organophosphorus compound, specifically a phosphonate. It is used to kill weeds, especially annual broadleaf weeds and grasses that compete with crops. It was discovered to be an herbicide by Monsanto chemist John E. Franz in 1970. Monsanto brought it to market for agricultural use in 1974 under the trade name Roundup, and Monsanto's last commercially relevant United States patent expired in 2000.
According to a small research study cited by the national coalition Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse, the amount of glyphosate (Roundup) allowed in American drinking water is much higher than the limit should be.
According to the study, close to 70 percent of household drinking water tested contained between 0.085 and 0.33 parts per billion of glyphosate. The current limit in the United States is 0.4 parts per billion, which might not sound like much, but research shows that even with only one-fourth of that amount, which is the limit in the European Union (EU), glyphosate can damage 4000 genes and can cause many serious health problems. The higher allowable amount of glyphosate translates into ten times higher amounts of glyphosate found in urine tests in Americans than in Europeans, which is serious cause for alarm.
Laboratory and epidemiological studies confirm that Roundup and glyphosate pose serious health and environmental hazards, including possible endocrine (hormone) disruption, cell death, DNA damage, cancer, birth defects, and neurological disorders.
