Glyphosate exposure during pregnancy linked to autism spectrum disorder

The weed killer glyphosate has been found by peer reviewed independent studies to be a carcinogen, DNA mutagen and a antibiotic and endocrine disrupter. Recent research has found that children born of women with high exposure to glyphosate during pregnancy have 30% higher rate of autism spectrum disorder than mothers who do not.  If your are thinking that you do not use weed killer, so you must be ok, please understand that our farms use products that contain glyphosate on their crops that become our food. Glyphosate levels are very high in soybeans, oats, wheat and corn. Please realize that these crops are basically in every food that you eat.  Glyphosate has even been found in eggs due to the chicken feed.  This is why it is extremely important to eat organic foods.  Organic foods do not contain pesticides, herbicides or any harmful chemicals.
