THE CEREAL BAR
In 2018, EWG released two reports confirming the presence of the harmful pesticide glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, in popular oat-based cereals, like Cheerios and Quaker oatmeal.
So we went to the public to see how they felt about eating a cereal containing the notorious Monsanto weedkiller.
Do you want glyphosate in your cereal?
ABOUT THE RESEARCH
In 2018, the Environmental Working Group, or EWG, submitted a range of oat-based cereals and snacks to an independent laboratory to test for glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. Of the 73 conventional product samples that were tested, all but two contained the weedkiller.
The World Health Organization has found links between glyphosate and cancer, and the state of California now classifies the weedkiller as a chemical known to cause cancer in people. Glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicide ingredients in the world, used on genetically modified, or GMO, crops and sprayed on non-GMO crops such as oats.
