Scientists didn’t pay much attention to mycotoxins until 1960, when a form of mycotoxicoses related to animal feed called turkey X disease began sickening farm animals in England. The one positive thing that came from the crisis was that scientists discovered that mycotoxins are hepatocarcinogens – agents that cause cancer of the liver. 
The presence of mycotoxins in crops is determined by temperature, humidity, amounts of rainfall and other environmental factors, and cannot be avoided entirely. This is why mycotoxins are permitted in small amounts in food.
There are more than 750 products for sale in the USA alone which contain glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide that has been selling since the 1970s.
The agency is comprised of an international review board which determined that glyphosate is indeed carcinogenic. Considering that more than ‘80% of the biotech-created GM crops’ throughout the world were manufactured to be used with this herbicide – it would logically follow that the majority of our food supply is now contaminated by a cancer-causing agent(s).
Following the release of the report, the country of Sri Lanka decided to ban glyphosate completely, and other countries are considering a similar move. Is this information just too much to swallow for more immediate action to follow, or have governments been infiltrated so completely by biotech that the announcement that most of our food is covered in poison will simply be ignored?
