USA: Antibiotics in Wine?!

I recommend listening to whatever Dr. Pedram Shojai the "Urban Monk" says. Herebelow is his email re antibiotics and glyphosate in wine. Wine is a huge worldwide business, with China the largest for vineyards (see Wikipedia). This is not a paid testimonial but I have learned a lot from Dr. Shojai and his colleagues since following the Interconnected series.
Having glyphosate and other antibiotics in wine is not a minor glitch. It is horrifying. Sometimes (every day😉) I ponder how non-humans really seem exquisitely superior to humans. They don't make wine or glyphosate, for example, and muck things up. Grape-eaters simply eat grapes.

Hi Liz Marshall,
100% of California wines tested contained toxic glyphosate…
In 2010, glyphosate was patented in the U.S. as an antibiotic… needless to say, this isn't something you want to be ingesting if you care about your microbiome.
The advocacy group Moms Across America sent 10 samples of wine in to be tested by Microbe Infotech Lab in St. Louis…
The samples came from vineyards of all sizes—from very small to very large operations… The vineyards included those that use modern agricultural practices—as well as those that are "organic."
They ALL tested positive for glyphosate.
Even the ones that had never been sprayed with Roundup (the trade name of Monsanto/Bayer's toxic glyphosate herbicide)…
Levels were much higher in crops that were sprayed directly with pesticides and herbicides—but even those that were not fell victim to the reckless use of these toxins on our food supply…
Here's another interesting tidbit…
Glyphosate is patented as an antibiotic… So, as if the fact that it's a known carcinogen isn't enough, we can be sure that it's also disrupting our microbiomes…
Studies have shown that it favors harmful bacteria growth while inhibiting the good stuff…
Obviously, it's becoming harder and harder to avoid glyphosate without sourcing food from remote farms—far away from "modern" agricultural practices…
I am officially on the lookout for safe sources of wine for the wine-lovers among you…
In the meantime:
I have found a safe source (far, far away) for another favorite drink… coffee!
Coffee is one of the crops most heavily-sprayed with toxic herbicides and insecticides…
But not this coffee (because of where it is sourced and how it is handled)… Click that link to see the source and the process for yourself.
To your health,
Dr Pedram Shojai
