According to the WHO health organization, glyphosate is a possible carcinogen. This chemical ends up in our groundwater through the use of weed killers. CWC Labs was commissioned by Health Ranger Store to perform an independent test to filter glyphosate from the water using various water filters.
CWC Labs is the only laboratory worldwide that has performed this water filter test with glyphosate. They conduct these types of tests for consumers to demonstrate how effective water filters are, so that consumers can make an informed choice.
How does glyphosate end up in groundwater?
Glyphosate is a chemical used in crop protection products. It ensures that unwanted plants between the crop, such as weeds or grass, die. It’s a weed killer. In agriculture, this liquid agent is sprayed over fields. As a result, it can seep into the soil and can subsequently end up in the groundwater. Water purification companies purify a large part of glyphosate from the groundwater, yet small particles still remain in our drinking water. Glyphosate is harmful to humans, animals and nature.
Glyphosate filter test results
Some water filters filter out a large amount of glyphosate from the water, according to CWC Labs. This proves that water filters are effective in removing this chemical from the water. Some filters reduce the glyphosate content by 20%, while others remove 100% from the water. Water bottles with filters, water filter jugs and larger filter systems with a water reservoir were used in this test. The water filter jugs as a group performed better than the filter bottles filtering glyphosate from the water. The ZeroWater water filter jug performed best in the glyfosaat water test, it removed 100% of the glyphosate from the water.

What’s unique about CWC Labs is the in depth knowledge the founder Mike Adams has, he’s also known as “Health Ranger”. He has extensive knowledge about nutrition, the composition of food and toxins in chemicals and elements. The lab tests almost all liquid or solid samples for more than 25,000 known chemicals, including pesticides, industrial chemicals, recreational drugs and food additives. CWC Labs is able to determine exactly what is in a product, up to a few parts per billion (GDP) concentrations.
Much attention to glyphosate
Glyphosate has been under scrutiny for a long time. Health organization WHO and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) have identified glyphosate as a possible carcinogen. This has led to many new studies and analyzes. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has concluded that the relationship of glyphosate with cancer at current exposure is unlikely. The EU countries decided in November 2017 that the product can be sold in Europe for another 5 years.
Do you want to be sure that glyphosate is filtered from your drinking water? Then use a ZeroWater water filter jug. ZeroWater filters 100% glyphosate from the water. This means you are assured of clean water for good health.
