Traces Of Weed Killing Poison Found In Popular Breakfast Food

New study finds glyphosate in kids' cereals and snack bars

New study finds glyphosate in kids' cereals and snack bars

A new report found glyphosate, a weed-killing chemical that some health authorities link to cancer, in a number of popular breakfast foods and cereals marketed to children.

Roundup is the most popular weedkiller in the USA, and last week a court in California ordered the company to pay $39 million in compensation and $250 million in punitive damages to a school groundskeeper who developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after years of using Roundup at work.

The Environmental Working Group said it tested 45 samples of breakfast foods and found traces of glyphosate in 31 of them.

In its ruling, the court found that the company's Roundup and Ranger Pro products presented a "substantial danger" to consumers and that the company knew-or should have known-the potential risks they posed.

The company faces more trials involving other plaintiffs.

21 year old girl turns youngest to receive face transplant
Ms Schneider had a hard life, born with drugs in her system to a drug addicted mother who died when she was only 13-years-old. That patient, Connie Culp, underwent a 22-hour transplant surgery at Cleveland Clinic and debuted her new face in 2009.

The World Health Organization's cancer research agency classified glyphosate as "probably carcinogenic to humans" in 2015. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the European Union view Roundup as safe.

Unfortunately, we have no idea if a product needs to be recalled or is unsafe for consumption if we're not informed. But several researchers have said the IARC's determination was bogus because there is no evidence that glyphosate causes cancer.

Back to Nature Banana Walnut Granola Clusters, Cheerios Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal, and Quaker Old Fashioned Oats were among the products that contained the highest levels of glyphosate, according to the EWG.

Monsanto's reaction in a statement was that the company was "sympathetic to Mr Johnson and his family" but it would "continue to vigorously defend this product, which has a 40-year history of safe use".

General Mills responded Wednesday saying, "Our products are safe and without question they meet regulatory safety levels".

CHARLES: What I find most interesting is the fact that the jury did not believe or give credibility to the sort of the official institutions that are responsible for evaluating safety of a chemical. "The agency's assessment found no other meaningful risks to human health when the product is used according to the pesticide label".

The trader also referred to a report published today in the German economic daily Wirtschaftswoche, according to which Monsanto is also threatened with other million penalties in the United States because of the weed killer Dicamba. "The EPA has researched this issue and has set rules that we follow". Glyphosate is commonly used by farmers across the industry who apply it pre-harvest.

"I was shocked", said Dr. Jennifer Lowry, who heads the Council on Environmental Health for the American Academy of Pediatrics and is a toxicologist at Children's Mercy Kansas City. Quaker does not add glyphosate during any part of the milling process.

Simply stated, there is far too much glyphosate in their products for parents to feel comfortable feeding them to their kids. Once the oats are transported to us, we put them through our rigorous process that thoroughly cleanses them (de-hulled, cleaned, roasted and flaked).
