Scientific research group US PIRG has conducted a study that tested five wines and 15 beers for glyphosate which is a popular herbicide used in the ‘Roundup ‘ chemicals used for killing weeds.
The Beer brands that were tested are: Coors Light, Miller Lite, Budweiser, Corona, Heineken, Guinness, Stella Artois, New Belgium, Sierra Nevada and Samuel Adams.
The Wine brands that were tested are: Beringer, Sutter Home, Barefoot, Inkarri and Frey Vineyards. The cancer causing Glyphosate was detected in 19 of the 20 beverages tested.
PIRG told USA TODAY:
‘The levels of glyphosate we found are not necessarily dangerous, but are still concerning given the potential health risks,’
