Ninety five percent of sugar beets grown in the U.S. are genetically modified and doused with glyphosate (Roundup) and other pesticides. There is a very strong correlation between exposure to glyphosate formulations and the risk of various cancers, including non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. The World Health Organization has also published a summary on glyphosate and has classified it as “probably carcinogenic in humans”… some good reasons to avoid sugar altogether!
