WEED KILLER INGREDIENT FOUND IN CHEERIOS, QUAKER OATS AND OTHER BREAKFAST CEREALS
By Cammy Harbison – August 15, 2018
Eating your Wheaties may not be as healthy as you once thought. A recent study conducted by The Environmental Working Group (EWG) found potentially unsafe amounts of the herbicide glyphosate in a number of popular breakfast cereals and snacks including Cheerios and Quaker Oats.
The study tested 29 different grain-based products, with all but five testing positive for trace amounts of glyphosate. Glyphosate is the main ingredient in weed killers such as Roundup and has been labeled a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization.
The report comes one week after chemical giant Monsanto was ordered by a court to pay $289 million to a terminal cancer patient whose illness, the jury ruled, could be attributed to using its Roundup weed killer. According to USA Today, hundreds of similar cases have been filed against Monsanto and are currently working their way through the court system.
