The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Science Based Medicine
One of our regular commenters forwarded to me an email that had slipped by her spam filters. It was from MyMedLab, whose slogan is “Lab Tests the Easy Way.” It starts out:
What is glyphosate?
Glyphosate was patented as an antibiotic Glyphosate kills bacteria in the soil The same bacteria exists in our gut Do you have glyphosate in you?
It goes on to offer tests you can purchase to test your entire family (and your tap water) for glyphosate – at $199 per test.
Glyphosate, of course, is the weed killer sold by Monsanto under the brand name Roundup, a product that has provoked widespread controversy.
Immediately, red flags went up and alarm bells went off. When I went to the website, I was appalled by the huge variety of non-standard and non-indicated tests customers could order for themselves. And by some of the prices.
