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.
This month - from 14th to 16th October and coinciding with World Food Day (16th October), a special People's Tribunal focusing on Monsanto takes place in The Hague, in the Netherlands.
Founded in 2002, the UN-backed International Criminal Court (ICC) started out by prosecuting war criminals. But the Monsanto Tribunal will open up a whole new Pandora's Box. Although it has no power of enforcement, The Hague tribunal aims to set a precedent for prosecution for the crime of Ecocide - the deliberate destruction of entire ecosystems.
That opens the way for the successful prosecution of corporations for crimes such as illegal deforestation, and land grabbing for the purposes of resource exploitation. Since corporations can be state-run (as in China), this casts the net even wider for prosecution under Crimes Against Humanity.
Six questions are under consideration at the Monsanto Tribunal in The Hague. Question 5 relates directly to Agent Orange: "Is Monsanto complicit in the commission of a war crime ... by providing materials to the United States Army in the context of operation 'Ranch Hand' launched in Vietnam in 1962?"
Question 6 relates to the crime of Ecocide: "Could the past and present activities of Monsanto constitute a crime of ecocide, understood as causing serious damage or destroying the environment, so as to significantly and durably alter the global commons or ecosystem services upon which certain human groups rely?"
As GMOs laced with glyphosate are commonly fed to farm animals

I'm thinking that maybe this Glyphospate is addictive. Look at the products-people get hooked on most of these. Then there is this statement
As GMOs laced with glyphosate are commonly fed to farm animals.
Coincidence? Could GMOs get animals hooked on grain and food so they constantly want to feed and grow fatter to serve the masses? It might be wild speculation but if true it could have broader implications. What if the big three-McDonalds, KFC, Burger King-are getting their meat from animals hooked on grain and wheats laced with this glysophates to speed up the meat factory, and therefore passing on those addictive qualities to humans through consumption?
Why are some people "addicted" to fast food? convenience? laziness? The big three make me sick and I'm lazy but somehow I want to go back even though it tastes horrible. I might be going down the rabbit hole here but the GMO's used in the meats might be one of the problems and it could've spread to the sweet section of the mega-mart isle.
I've seen free range chicken breasts bigger than my hand, what was being fed to those chickens, the blood of Barry Bonds? the links might be dubious and I might be wrong but I believe it warrants further investigation.

In this case she's just sharing something she read from elsewhere but she is, indeed, a piece of work. An ignorant one.
When your body is in the air, at a seriously high altitude, your body under goes some serious pressure. Just think about it – Airplanes thrive in places we don’t. You are traveling in a pressurized cabin, and when your body is pressurized, it gets really compressed!
It gets better.

Oh my! that is so utterly deplorable and really very scary. How on earth can Government bodies pass this food as safe with such levels if only 1ppb is deemed unsafe? Makes no sense
Here's a link to the full independent report

As for the fast food? People are so busy - and - look at the cost of food that's good for you in the store? SO expensive it's sick, which makes the 2 for $6.00 at BK tempting.
