Your Kid’s Cereal Might Have Same Ingredient As Weed Killer
At least two major boxes of cereal contain the same ingredient used to kill the weeds in your yard. In fact, just recently, a man sued to argue the weed killer gave him cancer and he won almost $300 million dollars.
Do you eat Cheerios, Lucky Charm’s, Cracklin’ Oat Bran or something similar? Some are claiming they contain a cancerous ingredient.
Lab tests conducted by the left-leaning Environmental Working Group (EWG), a nonprofit advocacy group that specializes in toxic chemicals and corporate accountability, indicated almost three-fourths of the 45 food products tested detected high levels of glyphosate, which has been identified as a “probable carcinogen” by the World Health Organization in 2015.
Most of the name brand cereal makers are assuring they follow regulatory safety rules. General Mills told FOX32 they "work closely with farmers, suppliers, and conservation organizations to minimize the use of pesticides on the crops and ingredients we use in our foods." Some farmers do use glyphosate (the same ingredient in weedkiller, Roundup) for pre-harvesting purposes.
