Study Finds Almost All Sanitary Cotton Products Contaminated with Probable Carcinogen

85 percent of sanitary cotton products tested in a new study were contaminated with glyphosate, which was recently ruled a “probable carcinogen” by the World Health Organization and is the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, used worldwide.

Roundup is applied to cotton plants “when the bud is open and the glyphosate is condensed and goes straight into the product,” one of the researchers reported.

The studied products were purchased in Argentina, which receives them from Brazil, including via the US.

RT notes that “[s]cientific studies have linked the chemicals in Monsanto’s biocides [such as Agent Orange] to Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, autism and cancer.”
