Get glyphosate out of our bread

Vanessa Kimbell: As a baker, the fact that I find most disturbing is that glyphosate is found in the bread we eat. A study in 2013 by Pan UK revealed that 63% of the loaves analysed contained traces of at least one pesticide, and this year tests by the Defra committee on Pesticide Residues in Food (PRiF) have reported that up to 30% of UK bread contains glyphosate. If this chemical was being added to our food by a foreign force, and not our farmers, we’d universally agree that we were under attack. Our most basic food, bread, contains traces of a potentially carcinogenic weedkiller. Suddenly a slice of toast has a 1 in 3 chance of being a contributory factor to a devastating disease that, according to Cancer Research UK, causes more than one in four of all deaths in the UK. So this year I will not be picking blackberries. Instead I wander through the field with the feeling that there is something seriously wrong with our food system.
