Are tap water sources contamination? These unsubstantiated claims are where they come from.

What exactly is a “glyphosate” herbicide?

Glyphosate (ingredient name “glyphosate isopropylamine salt”) is an herbicide that is used in agriculture and gardening all over the world including Japan. Spraying it absorbs from the green parts of plants, like the leaves and stems. It then migrates to the roots, and eventually suffocates the entire plant. Because it’s a non-selective herbicide, all plants will die if the agent is applied to the leaf’s surface. Since the patent time period for the ingredients has expired, many pesticide companies now offer herbicides made of glyphosate. All herbicides containing glyphosate in the marketplace have been thoroughly tested and are therefore reliable.

One of the attributes of glyphosate (glyphosate) is its “safety”. The chemical is extremely non-toxic to animals and blocks the activity of enzymes in plants. Furthermore, when the chemical comes in contact with soil, it is food for microorganisms. This is a pesticide that is widely recognized around the world, which helps reduce greenhouse gases.

Glyphosate found in tap water

Tap water is safe to drink.

Does glyphosate mix with tap water?

Weekly Shincho stated in April 2020 that “In Japan, there’s no any standard value for glyphosate present in the tap water. There is only the value that is targeted.” Furthermore it is more than other pesticides as well as other countries, and drinking water contaminated with pesticides. I wrote an article stating that there’s. グリホサート This has led to fears that tap water might contain excessive levels of Glyphosate. グリホサート This is not true.

The primary reason why glyphosate does not have an “standard value” but only a “target value” is that if the draft water quality standard value (concentration that is safe if you drink 2 L of tap water each day for a lifetime) is glyphosate, 10 minutes of 2ppm. Tap water has not detected glyphosate at a concentration greater than 0.2ppm (1). According to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare There was never a case of glyphosate that was greater than 0.02ppm was found in Japan tap water. It’s impossible to identify it.

In addition that, the glyphosate spray slows down the soil’s metabolism and decays in as little as two days. The same concentration will transfer into tap water and rivers and is not harmful to the environment.

Japanese tapwater is secure

The tap water of Japan is known as safe around the world. You can drink tap water in the current form. There are 51 elements that are subject to strict examination and are provided as per the law. The pH difference between water determines if it’s acidic, neutral or alkaline. Japan’s water quality standards demand that tap water be neutral (5.8+ or 8.6+). There is still the possibility that iron rust can be detected within your pipes that supply water.

How does tap water get created? グリホサート Tap water mostly uses surface water such as dam lakes and river water as raw water. The water collected in the water purification plant is cleaned through the injection of chlorine following removal of impurities by precipitation and filtration. The tap water created in the water purification plant is pumped to each home.

A story about the Japanese standard for residues of pesticides

The current standard value of glyphosate residues for wheat in Japan has been established at 5ppm. It was only 5 ppm at the time of December 2017. There are many opinions about this issue, such as “We decreased it to 30ppm , which is six times more and did not consider health effects.”

Tap water glyphosate from the tap

The standard for glyphosate that is left has the same amount that is the standard international.

But the fact of the matter is that we actually adjusted the standard to the international standard’s residual standard but not loosening it. Japan imports wheat in large quantities, mostly from South America, Canada, the United States and South America. The importer, or overseas producer, controls the use of glyphosate at 30ppm. Nevertheless, if the standard value for Japan is 5ppm, it will exceed the standard value and all imports will be banned. If this happens, the availability of wheat would be hindered and Japanese food products could be at risk. The standard value has been revised to meet the standards of international quality. The current standards are safe and do not cause any problems.

グリホサート Be able to understand glyphosate in a clear manner

To prevent consumers from being unnecessarily in a state of mind by the emotional discussion regarding pesticide residues It is essential for them to be able to get the right information which has been gained through studies conducted by scientists. It is important to be happy with your diet and not be distracted by gossip.
