In 2015 the USDA reported orange juice was the most consumed fruit juice in the United States and oranges were the second most consumed fruit overall, just slightly behind apples. The average person in America consumes 2.7 gallons of orange juice and 3 pounds of oranges each year. “100% Pure Orange Juice” is a common claim used by many juice brands that allow consumers to feel safe when serving it to their families daily. However, recent testing revealed that every one of the five top orange juice brands Moms Across America sent to an accredited lab tested positive for glyphosate weed killer. Glyphosate is the declared active chemical ingredient in Roundup, manufactured by Monsanto, and 750 other brands of glyphosate-based herbicides. Roundup is the most widely used herbicide in the world, often sprayed as a weedkiller between citrus trees, found in irrigation water and rain.
Moms Across Americaの創設者Zen Honeycuttは次のように述べています。「オレンジジュースに含まれるグリホサート留物の発見は、特に 世界保健機関は、2年前、2015の春にグリホサートを発がん性の可能性のある物質に指定しました。 。 EPAは、この化学物質のライセンスを取り消し、食品および飲料作物への使用を制限する十分な時間を費やしました。によって確認された アメリカ小児科学会 、私たちの子供（朝食にオレンジジュースを頻繁に飲む）は、農薬に対して特に脆弱であり、それらを保護するために直ちに対策を講じる必要があります。」
Two samples of each of the following brands were tested for both the herbicide glyphosate and its residue AMPA. Positive results ranged from 4.33 parts per billion (“ppb”) to an alarming 26.05 ppb. Chemical farming proponents will claim that these levels are too low to cause harm, and are lower than the EPA's allowable glyphosate residue level of 30 ppm on citrus, but these claims are irrelevant in comparison to new data. Studies have shown that only 0.1 ppm (100ppb) of glyphosate destroys beneficial gut bacteria, weakening the immune system, which can lead to a wide variety of health and neurological issues. Considering the standard American diet high wheat, sugar, oatmeal, soy, and corn, with levels of up to 6000 ppb or 1.67ppm have been detected, a child can easily exceed 100 ppb if a glass of orange juice is added at 26 ppb.
