New EWG analysis has found that popular children’s foods like cereal, granola bars, and instant oatmeal come with a hefty dose of glyphosate, the cancer-causing ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup.
Monsanto was recently ordered to pay $289 million in damages after a jury found the pesticide giant liable for causing a school groundskeeper’s cancer. Glyphosate is dangerous, especially for kids. The EPA calculated that 1-to-2-year-old children are likely to have the highest exposure to glyphosate.
Glyphosate is showing up in food made with oats because oats and wheat are sprayed with glyphosate to kill the crop right before harvesting. It is a practice that is not necessary and should be stopped. Companies need to step up and make sure their products are free of glyphosate before they hit store shelves.
We can’t wait for the EPA to take action on glyphosate. Parents shouldn’t have to worry about carcinogenic pesticides in their food at the grocery store.
Use the form below to stand with EWG and tell food companies like General Mills, Quaker and Kellogg’s to get glyphosate out of our food!
Get glyphosate out of our food!
As a concerned consumer, I urge you to make sure your oat and wheat products are free of glyphosate.
Glyphosate is the key ingredient in Monsanto’s signature herbicide Roundup. The World Health Organization and California state scientists have linked glyphosate to cancer.
This dangerous chemical shouldn’t be anywhere near my food, but recent EWG analysis has found glyphosate in at least one of your products.
This is unacceptable.
Consumers expect better of you. I urge you to ensure your products are free of cancer-causing glyphosate!
