Beware of eating this pasta: this is what can happen



According to a recent analysis carried out recently, some brands of pasta sold in Italy pose considerable health risks due to the presence of pesticides and glyphosate. In this regard, months ago a really interesting service was broadcast in Striscia la Notizia, a service that aroused the interest of all Italians. The theme was precisely the quality of Italian pasta, analyzed and rated according to the type of grain used and the possible presence of substances. According to the investigation carried out, a large part of the pasta sold in various Italian supermarkets would be contaminated with glycophate, a pesticide increasingly accused because considered carcinogenic even if it is unfortunately still widely used everywhere, including in our country.

During the episode of Striscia la Notizia, Max Laudadio, the journalist employed in this type of service, told about the investigation carried out on Italian pasta and the potential dangers of it, reporting the results that emerged from the analysis and advice to avoid the consumption of certain brands because they are contaminated with mycotoxins and glycophate as a result of imports of wheat from the United States and Canada. Precisely to avoid these contaminations, many big names in Italian pasta have decided to completely forego wheat from these regions in order to reduce any potential risk.

During an interview with experts, an oncologist also intervened who was asked about the real dangers associated with glyphosphorus and mycotoxins. Going back to the analysis carried out, no less than 20 different brands of spaghetti were sent to the laboratory, and based on the results obtained, the hypothesis emerged that this overseas shipment could end up on our plates with its bulky luggage of herbicide probably carcinogenic for the IARC. . In 7 out of 20 types of pasta analyzed, traces of glyphosate were found and in 6 of these 7 wheat was also imported from non-European countries.

Is it Canadian wheat? For some pasta samples, the suspicion was very strong but there is no certainty because the labeling legislation present in the packaging allows companies to generically indicate the origin “EU” and/or ” outside the EU”, without specifying it. Certainly glyphosate is not only used from abroad, as evidenced by its concentration – although it is often contained and always below the legal limits as for many other samples – found in Italian spaghetti with 100% wheat absolutely Italian.
