Glyphosate In Popular Breakfast Cereals

A third round of testing conducted by the Environmental Working Group confirms that glyphosate is present in popular breakfast cereals! 

 

Glyphosate is one of the active ingredients in Roundup that has been linked with certain types of cancers and developmental disorders. Glyphosate is also a patented antibiotic. So, each time you consume it on your cereal, you are eating a dose of antibiotics.

 

From the article:

“Of the 21 products tested, those with the highest levels of glyphosate include:

Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch (833 ppb)
