If you?re a fan of the classic Ben & Jerry?s ice cream line, you?re in for a treat. A survey conducted by the Health Research Institute (HRI) laboratories found traces of glyphosate in 13 out of the 14 tubs of Ben & Jerry?s ice cream sampled in the UK, France, Germany, and the Netherlands.

Even if you?re unfamiliar with glyphosate, odds are that you?ve probably consumed it before. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto?s herbicide RoundUp, and it?s sprayed on not only GM crops, but many regular crops as well.

It?s not uncommon to find traces of glyphosate on non-organic foods now, which is a huge issue due to the risks it poses to both the environment and human health. RoundUp  threatens the wildlife living around the crops and their surrounding environment, and the herbicide has helped Monsanto monopolize the North American farming industry, threatening local farmers? livelihoods.
