In the U.S. the children are fed cereals with toxic poison

New study finds glyphosate in kids' cereals and snack bars

Lab tests conducted by the left-leaning Environmental Working Group (EWG), a nonprofit advocacy group that specializes in toxic chemicals and corporate accountability, indicated nearly three-fourths of the 45 food products tested detected high levels of glyphosate, which has been identified as a "probable carcinogen" by the World Health Organization in 2015.

For this study, EWG's scientists tested 29 products and found that nearly three-quarters of the samples contained higher levels of glyphosate than deemed safe.

Even five of sixteen organic products tested had traces of glyphosate.

How figured out the experts of the Environmental Working Group, children in the United States are fed cereals with toxic poison with glyphosate, which causes cancer, asthma and other unsafe diseases. However the FDA has not yet released any official results.

Popular children items, including General Mills' Cheerios Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal, Lucky Charm's, Kellogg's Cracklin' Oat Bran and Quaker's Old Fashioned Oats, all had levels exceeding EWG's safety guidelines.

"I was shocked", said Dr. Jennifer Lowry.

Bayer said in a statement: "Bayer is confident, based on the strength of the science, the conclusions of regulators around the world and decades of experience, that glyphosate is safe for use and does not cause cancer when used according to the label".

A recent verdict finding Monsanto's popular weed killer caused a terminally ill man's cancer could be disastrous for the agrochemical giant as thousands of other plaintiffs prepare for their day in court and lawmakers begin to consider bans on the product.

Aretha Franklin's funeral will be four-day event in Detroit
Her recording success continued across the 70s, with 1972's Young, Gifted and Black and 1976's Sparkle both achieving Gold stats. The death certificate also says Aretha will be entombed at Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit, the same place Rosa Parks is buried.

Both Ms Simson and Mr Young said glyphosate formed a crucial part of Australian farmers' tool-kit to control invasive weeds in food crops.

"The draft human health risk assessment concludes that glyphosate is not likely to be carcinogenic to humans".

The amounts found are far below the allowable limits, and anyway, most experts in the field say there's very little evidence that glyphosate causes cancer or any other health problems. The previous version also didn't make it clear that the Environmental Working Group is an advocacy group and its findings have been challenged by scientists.

The scare over a potential link between Roundup and cancer appears to have begun with a now widely-criticized statement put out by a World Health Organization group known as the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in 2015. Farmers spray these crops with glyphosate right before harvest time, as they kill the crop and dry it out, making it ready for harvest quicker.

The manufactures of the food products defended their safety procedures, pointing to regulatory limits that they say they meet.

"I grew up eating Cheerios and Quaker Oats long before they were tainted with glyphosate". Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other regulatory authorities in Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia, Korea, and elsewhere routinely review all approved pesticide products and have consistently reaffirmed that glyphosate does not cause cancer.

"We don't think it does enough in particular to protect children", he said.
