A recent study showed the toxic herbicide glyphosate (Roundup) in the breast milk of a significant percentage of American women, even those actively trying to avoid chemical contaminants
Glyphosate was also found in urine and drinking water samples at levels 10 times higher than those in the EU when tested in 2013
A Canadian study found Bt toxin in the umbilical cords and circulating blood of 93 percent of pregnant women tested
US corn and soy fields are creating an ecologic crisis, turning grasslands into lifeless, barren expanses, ruining topsoil, and decimating already endangered wildlife

Whoa, get your facts straight.  It was found in 3 out of 10 samples sent in.  That is a long way from a significant percentage of Am. Women.  Significant - yes, for the 10 people in the sample only.  And the sample was not random and really has no statistical reliability.

A bold new study has shown that the herbicide glyphosate passes through breast milk. Glyphosate is used in agriculture on genetically modified crops and is best known as the main ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp. This study, facilitated by Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse, is the first of its kind. The research team found “high” levels of glyphosate in 30 percent of breast milk samples tested.

  This is a quote from the study in Sustainable Pulse.  "In the first ever testing on glyphosate herbicide in the breast milk of American women, Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse have found ‘high’ levels in 3 out of the 10 samples tested."  Note that your study never mentioned that only 10 people were tested.   the trouble with getting your news from, "Inquisitr's daily viral news" is that it is just that - viral with not a lot of extra research done.
     I have no trouble with doing more research into breast milk contamination.  I do have a problem with the lead sentence of, "A recent study showed the toxic herbicide glyphosate (Roundup) in the breast milk of a significant percentage of American women, even those actively trying to avoid chemical contaminants ."    10 people does not represent a significant percent of American women.  And the fact that the samples came from women who are actively actively trying to avoid chemical contaminants.  That is scary.  But, "The highest glyphosate level was detected in a mother from Florida (166 ug/l) and the other two mothers with ‘positive’ results were from Virginia (76 ug/l) and Oregon (99 ug/l)."   This really leads to many more questions about where the mothers lived in relationship to fields (since they avoided GMO foods, etc). So yes, more research is definitely needed.  I just don't like scary headlines.
