Cancer-causing' weed killer found in 26 of 28 United States cereals | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Cancer-causing' weed killer found in 26 of 28 United States cereals

The weed killer was recently at the center of a trial in which a California jury found Roundup was responsible for giving groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, 46, terminal cancer.

None of the products in the new report had levels above what is allowed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), but the EWG argues that customers should be concerned that any levels are being detected in products consumed by children everyday.

In August, the EWG conducted its first study, which found the presence of glyphosate in 45 samples of breakfast cereals from producers Quakers, Kellogg's, and General Mills.

On the heels of this study, the group wanted to dive further and test specifically Quaker Oats and Cheerios products, because high levels of glyphosate were found in the first study and they are two of the most popular cereal brands.

The EPA itself released a statement saying the report should not leave consumers concerned.

But Dr Alexis Temkin, a toxicologist at the EWG who worked on the report, says the results are disconcerting.

"Just because something is legal doesn't mean it's safe or that it provides that extra level of protection for children," she told Daily Mail Online.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have any of these products in your home, deep-six them now, and go to an organic equivalent, which states, on its label, no gmos, no pesticides.

Even if it just a little bit of poison your kids are ingesting, it is still...poison.
