oh no not in my wine

i am on a regimen of things that might slow down this alzheimers thing
one of the items is a glass of red wine at night
my wife she and i use that as a time to stop at 500ish to visit relax and sip our wine
we enjoy these few moments
i wonder if that 30 minutes is like doing yoga or meditating
both which is recommended also

the red wine is also in the mind diet that is recommended for conserving your memory
there seems to be a lot of good reasons to sip the wine at night

i read this below
this all ties into my organic gardening thats my other area of relaxation i do

there is an author of organic books on gardening from dallas
his books are the best references for
organic vegetable gardening
insect and pest recognization and organic treatments
organic care of trees shrubs and plants
i had all of those books and used them almost daily
when we moved i donated them to various folks
sort of
passing it on
the knowledge the organic method

now i agree with most of what he says but not everything
on this below im with him

the author has a weekly radio show out of dallas
he has a real good organic website that i have used multiple times
he is called the dirt doctor
he writes a newsletter regularly online which i receive in my inbox
this week it caught my eye

it was about roundup or glyphosates
the stuff that kills weeds and will kill your trees and shrubs and plants and veggies if you happen to spray it on them
some feel like it will even kill you

so apparently there is a normal ppm of roundup or glyphosate that is ok to be in food products and apparently in beer and wine

i always stop and think
why is there a normal or acceptible amount of this stuff in our food and now in our
wine and beer
shouldnt it be like zero or 0.0 ppm

in this article the levels of glyphosate from roundup is discussed in some popular beers and wines
i wont list the names of the wines and beers but they are in the article link
but click here to see them

i have personally consumed two of these five wines tested
i have personally consumed seven of these 14 beers tested and im not a beer drinker

there was only one beer tested without any glyphosate from roundup and it was an organic ipa beer
sadly all the beer i grew up on after of course my teenage years are on the list

what is more bothersome is that it is found in baby formula and has even been found in some breast milk

it is a carcinogenic according to the world health organization
our government doesnt think so
many countries especially in europe outlaw its use

the fda or epa acceptible levels in some crops for glyphosate range from 0.1-310 ppm
these wines and beers and some baby food and baby formualas are in the acceptible range
but shouldnt that range be
zero or 0.0

maybe box wine wont have any of it in there
