Have you ever considered that the majority of cotton particularly in the U.S. is genetically modified, and as such, it might be tainted with cancer-causing, endocrine-disrupting, infertility-promoting glyphosate?
Well it appears following a study carried out in Argentina earlier this year that found that 85% of tampons, cotton, and other hygiene products contain traces of a cancerous chemical linked to one of the world’s most controversial pesticides.
The potential health implications from glyphosate are mounting, and it’s been linked to cancer by the World Health Organization (WHO). This is what millions of women are exposing themselves unknowingly to every day.
Monsanto’s Roundup is the world’s most popular weed killer and most of the cotton in countries like the US and Argentina use Roundup-resistant GM cotton. This is also the case with much of the corn and soy we consume. Glyphosate being the key ingredient.
Traces of this toxic herbicide can also be found in our food and, now we know, feminine hygiene products, despite the WHO being aware it was a carcinogen.
