The EPA Allowable Daily Intake (ADI) for glyphosate is set at 1,750 µg (1.75 mg) per kg of bodyweight. and the EWG's glyphosate benchmark is160 ppb.

But, many health experts warn that there is no safe glyphosate level.

Bio:  

Howard Vlieger is a third generation family farmer who has been a “student of the soil,” studying why and how the soil works as it does, since 1989.  Howard lives on the family farm where he was born and raised in northwest Iowa, and assists his son with the duties on their diverse family farm. Since 1992 Howard has been a crop and livestock nutrition adviser. He founded three companies to help family farmers reduce their dependency on chemical- based farming and transition to biological and/or organic crop production methods.  Howard has been privileged to work with crop and livestock operations all over the US and Canada.

Howard also works with scientists and researchers around the world investigating problems caused by GMOs and the chemicals used in growing them and developing effective solutions, based on the latest science, to solve the real-life problems farmers are experiencing because of the GMO crops and glyphosate herbicides. Howard is the first co-author and the primary coordinator of a first of its kind scientific study: the feeding of Non-GMO grain and GMO grain to pigs for their lifetime as a meat animal.  Howard is an internationally recognized educator and speaker on the topic of GMOs.

   Howard serves on the board of directors for the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance (FARFA) and the Council for Healthy Food Systems (CHFS). Howard serves on the advisory board for GMO Free USA.

 “It is an amazing opportunity to be a caretaker of the soil. The good Lord made an amazing creation when He created the soil. It is a true joy to continue the never ending learning experience of working with all of the biological and elemental components of the soil to produce a clean, nutrient dense food for all deserving families to eat. It is an even greater privilege to work with family farmers to help them gain a better understanding of crop and livestock production (nature’s way) to produce a premium quality food.”

Howard’s greatest accomplishment is that of being a Christian husband to his wonderful wife Pamela of 38 plus years, a father to 3 young adult children and proud grandfather of three.

Please help ban Roundup and stop the epidemic of cancer and other health issues caused by this deadly pesticide.
