Cheerios, Nature Valley cereals contain Roundup poison

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day — how about adding some Roundup to that?

Products including Cheerios and Nature Valley cereals, granola and snacks contain “troubling levels” of the cancer-causing chemical glyphosate, which is found in Roundup, a study published Wednesday said.

“Glyphosate is used mostly as a weedkiller on genetically modified corn and soybeans. But it is also sprayed on oats just before harvest as a drying agent, or desiccant. It kills the crop, drying it out so it can be harvested sooner, which increases the likelihood that glyphosate ends up in foods children love to eat,” the study said.
