Are taps contamination? Where do these unsubstantiated reports come from?

What is a “glyphosate” herbicide?

Glyphosate (ingredient name “glyphosateisopropylamine sodium”) is herbicides that are used to combat the spread of pests in agriculture and gardens across the globe and even in Japan. Glyphosate is absorbed from the green parts of plants, like stems and leaves. After spraying, the agent migrates to the root and weakens the entire. Because it’s classified as an “non-selective” herbicide the plants will die when the herbicide is applied to the leaf’s surface. Numerous pesticide companies offer herbicides containing glyphosate because the patent time period for these ingredient has expired. The herbicides that are currently available on the marketplace are safe and have been subjected to rigorous inspection.

One of the attributes of glyphosate (glyphosate) is its “safety”. This chemical is extremely non-toxic to animals, and it inhibits the action of enzymes in plants. The sprayed chemical solution becomes food for microorganisms once it comes in contact with soil. It is later separated into water and carbon dioxide. This makes it unique as it is free of herbicide substances. Because it allows no-tillage cultivation it is acknowledged as a pesticide which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Glyphosate in tap water

Tap water is secure

Do you know if glyphosate is added to tap water?

In April of 2020, Weekly Shincho said, “In Japan, there is no standard value for glyphosate remaining in tap water, only the amount that the government has set as.” Additionally it is more than other pesticides as well as other countries, and it is also drinking water is contaminated by pesticides. In an article, I said that there was. グリホサート 稲 This has led to fears that tap water could contain high levels of glyphosate. This is not true.

First , the reason why glyphosate isn’t have a “standard value” but only an “target value” is that if the standard for draft water quality value (concentration that is safe drinking 2 liters of tap water every day for the rest of your life) is glyphosate and 10 minutes of 2ppm. Tap water has never detected the presence of glyphosate in a concentration greater than 0.2ppm (1). According to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, Japan has never had any reports of glyphosate contaminating tap water. It is not possible to identify it.

Furthermore, the soil will decay in a rate of half one percent within two days following the spraying. The same concentration will transfer into tap water and rivers and will not cause any harm to.

Japanese tap water is safe

Tap water from Japan is considered to be safe. There is no problem if you drink tap water in the way it is. There are 51 strict inspection items that are supplied based on strict quality control as stipulated by law. グリホサート In accordance with the difference in pH in water, it can be classified as “acidic”, ‘neutral”, or “alkaline”. However the Japanese water quality standards stipulate that tap water has to have a pH close to neutral (5.8 or greater and 8.6 or less). There is a chance that iron rust may be found within your water supply pipes.

How does tapwater get made? Tap water typically uses dam and river water as its raw water source. After removing impurities through precipitation and filtration, the water is sterilized in the water purification plants. The tap water produced by the purification plant is then piped to every home.

The Story of Japanese pesticide residue standards value

The glyphosate residue standard value for wheat in Japan is 5 ppm at present, but until December 2017 it was 5 ppm. グリホサート 希釈 There are many views regarding this issue, including “We increased the limit to 30ppm 6 times and deplored health damage.”

Glyphosate is a component of tapwater.

The glyphosate standard that remains has the same amount that is the standard international.

Truth is, we didn’t loosen the standard. We set it to reflect the international residual standard. Japan imports wheat in large quantities, mostly from South America, Canada, the United States and South America. And the importer, the outside producer, naturally oversees the use of glyphosate to the standard international level of 30ppm. However, if the normal amount in Japan is set at 5ppm, it will be higher than the value of the standard and imports are banned. The availability of wheat could be affected, and Japanese food products could be in danger. The standard value is being revised to conform to the standards of international quality. And, of course, there is no problem with safety even using the current standards values.

You need to have a good understanding of glyphosate

To ensure that consumers are not emotional influenced by pesticide residues discussions, it is essential to have the correct knowledge. Experts have conducted research that is scientifically based. Also, you should be able to enjoy your food without being distracted distracted by rumors.
