glyphosate in wine

Story at-a-glance -

  • Glyphosate affects the crops being sprayed, and those in the next fields, as vineyards have discovered when bottles of organic wine tested positive; the herbicide may remain in the soil for more than 20 years
  • Despite mounting evidence glyphosate is responsible for numerous health conditions, one county in California continues to use it, citing a cost-benefit assessment where they count the benefit of weed control over the cost to health and the environment
  • Biodynamic wine often means the vineyard and winery are geographically close as this is part of the overall sustainability of the operation. Look for Demeter or SIP Certification on the back of the label; while a Demeter certified farm may grow different crops, SIP Certification is aimed specifically at vineyards
  • A Demeter Biodynamic certification goes beyond organic principles, treating the farm as an interconnected organism capable of maintaining a healthy habitat using what is produced on the farm

It is no longer a secret there is a serious issue in the food supply. Toxicity levels in food are rising as conventional agriculture continues to be a leading cause of environmental pollution and destruction. Toxins may accumulate during plant growth, as they can be added during harvesting and processing or introduced during manufacturing.

One serious toxin in the food supply is glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup. No other pesticide has come even close to the “intensive and widespread use” it enjoys in agriculture. As I've written in the past, glyphosate has been tested and found in breast milk, water, disposable diapers and honey.
