A number of popular breakfast cereals, granolas, oatmeal and snack bars could possibly contain a dangerous weed killer called glyphosate, produced by the Monsanto company, according to a report broadcast on New York’s ABC Channel 7 Eyewitness News.
A former school grounds keeper was awarded $289 million last week after he sued Monsanto, claiming that his terminal cancer was caused by the company’s weed killer, which contained glyphosate.
Now an organization called the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has tested a list of popular breakfast foods and snack bars — and has found that many of them contain this dangerous chemical.
In fact, only five of them did NOT test positive for the weed killer. For a list of all the foods that tested positive for containing glyphosate, click here.
