An American public interest research group has discovered a small amount of glyphosate in some beers and wine.

Glyphosate is a pesticide or weed killer.

The study investigated 5 wines and 15 beers and found trace amounts of the poison in them. The study examined popular wines like Miller Lite, Budweiser, Corona, Heineken, Guinness, Stella Artois and Coors Light.

While the pesticide levels discovered were not dangerous, they are concerning.

The World Health Organisation has said glyphosate can cause cancer however the amount discovered in wine and beer are below what the Evironmental Protection Agency considered a health risk.  Source: https://wgno.com/2019/02/26/pesticides-in-your-alcohol-study-finds-trace-amounts-of-glyphosate-in-some-beers-wines/
