All the Breakfast Foods That Contain Glyphosate, the Weed-Killing Chemical Linked to Cancer
A 2018 report from the Environmental Working Group found that glyphosate, a common weed killer that has been linked to cancer, was found in a large amount of oat-based breakfast foods. Although the FDA and EPA insist some amounts of glyphosate are safe in food, it has been linked to cancer by the World Health Organization and scientists in California.
The report found that all but two of the 45 samples (some products were sampled multiple times) made with conventionally grown oats contained glyphosate, and nearly three-fourths of those tested had levels that were higher than what the EWG scientists consider safe: 160 ppb.
