We all know that alcoholic drinks are not a health food and alcohol itself is linked to cancer. But, these new findings are just further evidence that this hazardous weed killer is ending up in almost everything that we eat and drink. How much weed killer are we each eating every day?
Breaking new tests conducted by the consumer interest group U.S. PIRG finds that many popular beer and wine brands are contaminated with glyphosate (the main ingredient in Roundup).

Could probably find that much feces in it.
I rather doubt the National Addiction News would be biased against alcohol, don’t you agree?...
Lets see, glyphosate has been in use since around 1974 and I’ve been drinking beer since around 1968. I’m still alive......And the brain cells that survived my many drunken escapades are the strongest of the herd......
I have Guinness Stout in my fridge right now. Man, even though I’m not a beer drinker that stuff is delicious.
And if you’ve ever wanted to try that recipe for making beef stew with it, do! It’s comes out the best beef stew. Makes the meat tender and tasty. Great gravy with it.
As soon as I saw the source,
I thought, uh-huh, sure. Wait
until they find out how many
insects parts are allowed in
their favorite munchies.
The highest level was 60-ish ppb, most were in the mid to low 50 ppb, and then 30, 20, zero.
You had to scroll twice to get to the actual information, which is such a chore, I know.
The beer brands that tested positive for glyphosate are Budweiser, Coors Light, Miller Lite, Sam Adams, Samuel Smith (organic), New Belgium, Corona, Heineken, Guinness, Stella Artois (beer and cider), Ace Perry, Sierra Nevada, and Tsingtao. The beer with the most glyphosate was Tsingtao at 49.7 ppb, followed by Coors Light, Miller Lite, Budweiser and Corona.
Good news. If you find a beer that you don’t like, apply it to your weeds.
And insect parts
You may be entitled to a large cash settlement if you drank any of these beers.
Guinness Stout works well with Corn Beef/Cabbage/taters, etc.
“Notice the article omits the actual concentration found?”
Actually, it mentions 51 parts per billion and others 5ppb.
That is so low is might as well not even be mentioned.
“Good news. If you find a beer that you dont like, apply it to your weeds.”
I do that after I’ve rented the beer.
I guess Frank Booth was right about Heineken.
WHO and FAO issued a report in 2016 stating the use of glyphosate formulations does not necessarily constitute a health risk, and giving admissible daily maximum intake limits (one milligram/kg of body weight per day) for chronic toxicity.
The reported amounts are many milllions of times less than this limit.
The report gets a bit hysterical, using words like “contaminate”, “lies”, “hiding the danger”, etc.
It says that Roundup is “strongly linked to cancer”. That is flat out false and the article fails to back that statement up.
In fact, Roundup is used on about 80% of all the crops grown in the US and is responsible for the incredible productivity of our farms.
Shouldn’t we be a bit more concerned about the amount of alcohol being consumed?
We have far bigger fish to fry.
Seafood you buy at the grocery store has a thousand times that level of mercury.
Just because you can detect something at the PPB level doesn’t make it a hazard.
