ZEGO will use blockchain to rule out the presence of harmful chemicals in food


ZEGO, a food safety company is using blockchain technology to test products in search of waste of a deadly chemical related to a Monsanto lawsuit with implications of more than $ 289 million, according to a press release.
Earlier this month, Monsanto was forced to pay more than $ 289 million in damages after the Court ruled in favor of the plaintiff’s allegations that the company was using a herbicide containing glyphosate, and that this It would have caused cancer.
In this sense, apparently ZEGO would have a pending patent application for a system based on blockchain technology that would allow companies to test their food in search of glyphosate.
According to the company, the solution would already be in the initial phase of development and would allow consumers to make better informed purchases about what chemicals contain the food they buy.
Also, glyphosate tests can be used as a means to verify the organic and non-GMO certifications of suppliers, which can sometimes be fraudulent.
According to the press release, “glyphosate has been involved in thousands of lawsuits and studies and its correlation with cancer and dangers for celiacs. This has generated many debates regarding how much exposure to this chemical would be safe, but in a purely academic way; because consumers have no idea how much of it they are ingesting. Most companies do not perform glyphosate disposal tests; although numerous studies have shown that it would be present to a large extent even in organic food.“

Crypto is even in the food industry, woow, when McDonald's is going to accept crypto?
More important than acceptance for payment is the logistics and tracking systems being deployed.
