Pesticides on the other hand can have a variety of harmful effects on human health, including neurological problems, reproductive problems, and cancer.

Top twenty fast food chains in America were tested, plus In-N-Out Burger in California. The most widely used herbicide in the world, glyphosate, as well as 236 agrochemicals, 4 heavy metals, PFAS, phthalates, and mineral content were examined in 42 samples from 21 different brands. The top ten brands were also examined for 104 commonly used veterinary medications and hormones, as well as for calories, B vitamins, and fat content. The United States is expected to spend $4.7 trillion, or 18% of the national economy in healthcare.

The fact that fast food is so widely contaminated with these chemicals is concerning because fast food is a popular and convenient option for many people, including children.

What Study Says

The study found that glyphosate levels in fast food were highest in Panera Bread, followed by Arby’s, Dairy Queen, and Little Caesar’s. The lowest levels of glyphosate were found in Chipotle.

The study also found that glyphosate levels in some fast food samples were as high as 439.11 ppb. This is significantly higher than the safety limit of 0.1 ppb set by the European Food Safety Authority.

Exposure to glyphosate has been linked to a number of health problems, including liver and organ damage, cancer, and reproductive problems.

What can you do to reduce your exposure to glyphosate?

  • Limit your consumption of fast food.
  • Choose organic produce whenever possible.
  • Wash all fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating them.
  • Peel fruits and vegetables with thick skins, such as apples and potatoes.
  • Avoid processed foods that contain glyphosate, such as breakfast cereals, snack foods, and frozen meals.
  • Cook more meals at home, so you can control the ingredients in your food.

If you are concerned about your exposure to glyphosate, you can also talk to your doctor about getting tested.

Conclusion

The findings of this study are concerning, and they suggest that people who eat fast food on a regular basis may be exposed to harmful levels of glyphosate. It is important to be aware of the risks associated with eating fast food, and to make choices that are best for your health.
