Is tapwater contaminated by the herbicide glyphosate? Where are these unsubstantiated rumors coming from?
What exactly is Gryphosate herbicide you may ask?

Glyphosate ("ingredient name "glyphosateisopropylamine-salt") is a herbicide that is widely used in agriculture and gardening throughout the world and in particular Japan. When it is sprayed, it gets absorption from the green parts like stems and leaves, migrates to the roots, and eventually withers the whole. It is classified as non-selective because it kills all plants when applied to the leaves' surfaces. The herbicides based on glyphosate are typically sold by pesticide companies because the patent period for their ingredients has expired. All herbicides containing glyphosate that are being sold are examined by a rigorous inspector.

One of the attributes of glyphosate (glyphosate) is its "safety". The chemical is not toxic to animals, and it inhibits the enzyme activity in plants. The sprayed chemical solution becomes food for microorganisms when it comes in contact with the soil. グリホサート It is then differentiated into water and carbon dioxide. This makes it unique because it contains no herbicidal ingredients. It is a pesticide recognized around the world, and it contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gases because it enables no-tillage cultivation.

Is there glyphosate in tap water?

Weekly Shincho stated that there was no set value for glyphosate present in Japan's tap water. Only the target value. In addition, the value is higher 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. This raised questions about the possibility that tap water may contain high concentrations. However, this is not the case.

Firstof all, glyphosate doesn't have a target or standard value. This is due to a concentration greater than 0.2ppm (1) has not been found in tap water. According to a Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare survey, Japan has not seen any cases of glyphosate in tap water with concentrations that exceed 0.02ppm. グリホサート The truth is that there is no risk of it being detected.

In addition that the glyphosate sprayed is degraded in soil in a manner that can be halved in two days. グリホサート cas Thus, it is transported into waterways and the tap at the same concentration and won't be a source of pollution.

Japanese tapwater is secure

Tap water in Japan is considered as safe around the world. Tap water can be drank in its entirety. There are 51 inspections to be completed prior to the sale of tap water. They are subject to strict quality control as mandated by law. In accordance with the difference in pH the water is classified as "acidic" or neutral" or "alkaline". グリホサート However the Japanese water quality standard stipulates that tap water should be close to neutral (5.8 or higher , and 8.6 or lower). There is a possibility that iron rust could be discovered in the pipes that supply water.

How does tapwater get made? Tap water is made primarily from water sources , such as rivers and dam lakes. The water collected in the water purification plant is sterilized through the injection of chlorine following removal of impurities via precipitation and filtering. The tap water is carried to every household via water pipes.

Story about Japanese standard value for pesticide residues

The standard value for glyphosate residue for wheat in Japan is currently 5 ppm as of December 2017. However, prior to that, it was at 5 ppm. There are numerous opinions on this issue, such as "We decreased it to 30ppm 6 times and ignored health risks."

Glyphosate is a component of tapwater.

The glyphosate standard that remains remains the same value that is the standard international.

グリホサート But the truth is we did not lower the standard. Instead we adjusted it to meet the residual standard of international standards. Japan imports huge quantities of wheat from South America. The importer, who is the main producer of wheat from overseas, regulates the use at 30ppm. However, Japan's normative value for glyphosate will be 5ppm. This will mean that all imports of this substance will be banned. If this occurs, the supply of wheat will be impacted and Japanese food production could be endangered. In order to meet international standards, we have changed the standards for these values. グリホサート 稲 Also, safety is not an issue with the current standards.

グリホサート An understanding of Glyphosate is essential

To avoid consumers being affected by the emotional discussions concerning pesticides' residues, it is essential to collect the right information based upon scientific research conducted by experts. It is important to be satisfied with your diet and avoid getting distracted by the rumors.
