(Natural News) Rachael Ray’s dog food brand, Nutrish, is now facing a $5 million lawsuit filed by Markeith Parks, who claims that her dog food is contaminated with glyphosate herbicide.

According to E!News:

Parks states in the documents that while Rachael Ray Nutrish “aggressively advertises” and promotes the products as “natural,” these “claims are false, deceptive, and misleading.”

“Instead, the products contain the unnatural chemical glyphosate, a potent biocide and endocrine disruptor, with detrimental health effects that are still becoming known,” the documents claim.

According to the lawsuit, “Tests conducted by an independent laboratory revealed that glyphosate is present in the Products.” But as I explain in my food science video below, it’s almost certain that glyphosate contamination could be found in nearly all pet food products and brands.

Glyphosate has become so ubiquitous that nearly every food item in the grocery store — pet food, human food or otherwise — can test “positive” for glyphosate when a sensitive enough instrument is used. That’s the problem with this deadly molecule: It gets into everything, contaminating water, soils, foods and even the air.

According to media reports, the plaintiff in this lawsuit is seeking to block all sales of the Nutrish dog food brand. But to what end? Every alternative would also contain glyphosate, unless it were certified organic. This idea that Rachael Ray’s dog food brand is the only dog food containing glyphosate is flatly ludicrous.

As I explain in my video below, the basis of this lawsuit seems flimsy, given that Rachael Ray’s dog food brand isn’t labeled “organic” or claiming to contain zero pesticides / herbicides. Also, as I explain, nobody is reporting the actual concentration of glyphosate supposedly found in these pet food products. That’s a big red flag. Is it one molecule of glyphosate? Is it 50 parts per trillion? If it’s anything under 1 ppb, I’m not worried about it. There’s probably at least 100 parts per trillion of glyphosate in everything these days, because it literally falls right out of the air. (Yes, there’s glyphosate in the atmosphere now. It’s impossible to grow food that isn’t contaminated with it at some level…)

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
