ALERT: Deadly Herbicide Found in HIGH AMOUNTS in These Breakfast Cereals – Get Rid of Them ASAP!

cereal danger


The Environmental Working Group just published a controversial new report, which shows that high levels of glyphosate, a dangerous herbicide linked to cancer, have been found in dozens of America’s most popular breakfast foods that may be in your kitchen.

Most people associate glyphosate with things like tomatoes or blueberries, but it turns out that farmers sometimes spray their oats with glyphosate, which in turn can wind up in your cereal, granola, and oatmeal if you’re not careful. This has caught many people off guard, but fortunately you’ve been warned.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, which have all been associated with glyphosate poisoning, please contact your primary care physician immediately:

  • Bloody Urine
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Mouth Ulcers
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Respiratory failure

You can find a full list of the symptoms of glyphosate poisoning here. Children under the age of 10, senior citizens, and anyone with a compromised immune system should meet with a doctor immediately if these symptoms arise. Glyphosate poisoning is a serious condition and should be treated immediately to prevent further sickness.

According to the official report published by the Environmental Working Group, only 2 of the 45 tested breakfast foods were safe to eat:

Glyphosate, an herbicide linked to cancer by California state scientists and the World Health Organization, was found in all but two of 45 samples of products made with conventionally grown oats. Almost three-fourths of those samples had glyphosate levels higher than what EWG scientists consider protective of children’s health with an adequate margin of safety. About one-third of 16 samples made with organically grown oats also had glyphosate, all at levels well below EWG’s health benchmark.

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup, the Monsanto weed killer that is the most heavily used pesticide in the U.S. Last week, a California jury ordered Monsanto to pay $289 million in damages to a man dying of cancer, which he says was caused by his repeated exposure to large quantities of Roundup and other glyphosate-based weed killers while working as a school groundskeeper.

EWG tested more than a dozen brands of oat-based foods to give Americans information about dietary exposures that government regulators are keeping secret. In April, internal emails obtained by the nonprofit US Right to Know revealed that the Food and Drug Administration has been testing food for glyphosate for two years and has found “a fair amount,” but the FDA has not released its findings.

The products which have been contaminated with glyphosate have not been recalled, despite posing a risk to consumer health. Many are furious over Monsanto’s continued marketing of their deadly herbicide, which has been proven to cause cancer.

Pictured below are several of the products that tested positive for the deadly herbicide:

The tests were conducted by an independent, third party laboratory, meaning that there was no financial bias or political reason to tamper with the evidence. Surprisingly, out of 45 samples an incredible 43 came back testing positive for glyphosate. This means that only 2 were determined as being “safe to eat.”

Some doctors and pharmaceutical representatives have suggested that glyphosate is not as dangerous as the media is claiming it is. They often cite studies funded by their own corporations, and quack doctors. According to most scientists, doctors, and researchers however, glyphosate is extremely dangerous and should be avoided at all costs.

In fact, according to KCRG Channel 9 ABC News, Monsanto was just ordered to pay $289 in fines for damages that their glyphosate-laden “Roundup” weedkiller product has caused:

Monsanto lost a key case in a California court last week because of its product glyphosate, opening up more lawsuits across the country.

The company will have to pay $289 million dollars to the plaintiff Dewayne Johnson, $39 million dollars in compensatory damages and $250 million in punitive damages.

While not every single breakfast food product was tested, it is recommended that you be very careful when consuming anything with oats. Consumers who have purchased these contaminated products are advised not to consume them, due to potential adverse health effects of glyphosate poisoning.

Consumers can contact Monsanto directly to file a complaint at (314) 694-1000 or by submitting the form found here on their website.
