Thank you for this. Alarming. Thankfully, I have cut out almost all of these processed foods. So what I wonder is, what level of contamination occurs in the raw ingredients of these? Or various fruits & vegetables I buy at the grocery store, either fresh or frozen. Also, run-off into our lakes & streams... so how much is in fish I may eat? What about the cow that eats the oats that are contaminated? How about the water table... can it seep into it? Things I wonder and just do not know.

It isn't the standard.
If 0.1ppb (and yes, it's a tiny amount) is the set standard,
Arsenic, is really bad. Right? Definitely dangerous. The drinking water maximum is 10.0 ppb.
0.1 ppb is absurd.

The "expert" answer is far from complete. Most of glyphosate is spread in to food chain via ordinary (not GM) wheat where is GLYPHOSATE USED AS DESICCANT FEW DAYS BEFORE HARVEST.
I don't see the point that they prosecute on their patent being relevant any more than I see the product being relevant any more.
That statement was in regard to direct exposure of agricultural workers.
That the WHO, in a very convoluted way now say the Glyphosate is, "probably Carcinogenic" should be enough for most to say no more...get it OTF.
For the herbicide glyphosate, there was limited evidence of carcinogenicity in humans for non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The evidence in humans is from studies of exposures, mostly agricultural, in the USA, Canada, and Sweden published since 2001.
In view of the absence of carcinogenic potential in rodents at human-relevant doses and the absence of genotoxicity by the oral route in mammals, and considering the epidemiological evidence from occupational exposures, the Meeting concluded that glyphosate is unlikely to pose a carcinogenic risk to humans from exposure through the diet.
I am aware of that. I am also aware that it is that industry which it the primary source of articles like the one in the OP.
There is a whole industry that doesn't use synthetics.
