Arizona Science Institute Launches First Ever Glyphosate Testing Biobank

MetricBio have launched the first ever Glyphosate Biobank, to help shed further light on the levels of glyphosate in the U.S population and to help researchers to investigate human health issues surrounding the World’s most used herbicide, The Detox Project reported on Tuesday.



The new study being performed by MetricBio is again involving the general public but this time we are not only giving people the opportunity to find out the level of glyphosate in their urine, we are also enabling them to be part of a ground-breaking Glyphosate Biobank, which will aim to help this and future generations to find out details about the health effects of glyphosate.

ADD YOUR NAME: Tell the EPA: Don’t Let Dow Chemical Poison our Kids!

In November 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finally took steps to ban chlorpyrifos, an agricultural pesticide known to be especially harmful to farmworkers and children.

Then along came the Trump Administration. Intent on prioritizing corporate profits over public health, Trump’s EPA reversed the ban—just 20 days after EPA Chief Scott Pruitt met with the CEO of Dow Chemical.

New Groundbreaking Research Shows Glyphosate Persists in Soil

The research study by the Dutch University of Wageningen and Rikilt laboratories, jointly with the JRC, reveals that among 317 EU soil samples of arable land, 42% contained AMPA, the most toxic metabolite of glyphosate, while glyphosate was found in 21% of the soils; 18% of the samples had both. The study was conducted in six crop systems along 11 EU member states comprising soils under different geographical and climatic conditions.

Latham: “Neonicotinoid insecticides and the environment - Open Letter from the World's Scientists. Sign or read or share please.”

An open letter to policy makers and regulators

t is the view of the undersigned scientists that the balance of evidence strongly suggests that these chemicals are harming beneficial insects and contributing to the current massive loss of global biodiversity. As such, there is an immediate need for national and international agreements to greatly restrict their use, and to prevent registration of similarly harmful agrochemicals in the future.

Failure to respond urgently to this issue risks not only the continued decline in abundance and diversity of many beneficial insects but also the loss of the services they provide and a significant fraction of the biodiversity heritage of future generations.

Social Media Manager - The Farmer's Dog - New York, NY


The Farmer’s Dog is a subscription-based pet health brand on a mission to disrupt the pet food industry. Our primary service reimagines the food we feed our pets by delivering fresh meals made with healthy, whole food ingredients in personalized meal plans.


We launched after our co-founder Brett’s battle to cure his Rottweiler Jada’s stomach issues illustrated the power of fresh food. After testing every pet food on the market without success, Brett resorted to a fresh, home-cooked diet at his vet’s recommendation. The results were staggering — Jada was cured. Once we realized how poor the state of commercial pet food was, we set out to develop a fresh alternative and created the product we wished existed for our own dogs (and dogs everywhere). Utilizing smart technology and an innovative business model, we are bringing peace of mind to our customers, health to their companions, and fundamentally changing the way people think about feeding their pets.
