    Weed-killing chemical linked to cancer found in some children's breakfast foods
    Breakfast With a Dose of Roundup?

    For those of us suffering MCS, this could be valuable information. ;)

    these chemicals are much worse than being merely "carcinogens"
    also, as I've warned over the years, the synergistic effects of poisons are vastly under rated for enormous harm
    for example

    my area was deluged with pollution form enormous steel factories
    AND cars were belching out tetraethyl lead in their fumes
    AND other poisons form poorly regulated and often criminally run factories (very easy to bribe or ignore problems here back then, especially when so many form police to judges were part of the same Masonic lodge...)
    they burned RADIUM waste from clock making factory my dad worked in, they didn't know, bosses sure as hell did, and officially it was "safe"...right next to 2 housing estates, a school and a fairy farm.
    hence, we have life expectancy worse than North Korea.

    Roundup is everywhere! Could be one of worst cases of compromised oversight ever! Well, not ever, but globally. I live in New Mexico where they experiments with detonating atomic bombs during WWII thinking that about 5 miles was a safe distance for observers. :mad:

    This is horrific - another reason to go keto!

    I know that Roundup is sprayed everywhere. My neighbors use it, it's sold at Home depot so it must be safe, right?

    I saw the story about the $289 million award the other day and also that there are thousands more lawsuits against Monsanto in the pipeline - I'm just wondering what will happen on appeal.

    These are not just "children's foods," many of these are consumed by adults, although children are the most vulnerable.

    Thank you for posting that list of products @CFS_for_19_years and I brought the Nature Valley granola bars (oats & honey or chocolate chip) with me as a snack when I did IVIG infusions for two years b/c they are so easy to put in my purse. Those mother f*ckers at Monsanto. I had no idea Glyphosate was in our foods. I will never buy this product again. I am so happy Monsanto just lost that lawsuit although they have destroyed so many lives.

    This is the reason we bake our own bread using organic flour.

    I wish I had the knowledge or skill to do something like that but I am in the process of learning how to cook some pretty basic stuff right now! It seems like the affected products all involve oats (which I will no longer be buying).

    We cheat by using an automatic bread making machine. Very easy!

    Would this work for someone who is gluten-free? I feel like even with a machine, I still would not have a clue what to do! At the moment, I am cooking basic thinks like soups, salads, omelets, buying ground beef, lamb, or turkey and making them into patties which I freeze, etc.

    Having Celiac disease has taught me that oats contain wheat cross contamination due to being stored in the same silos and harvested with the same equipment as wheat. Why? Because they CAN be grown on the same fields in rotation. Purity protocol oats are grown and harvested by growers that only produce oats and no wheat. However, I suspect (just a theory) that if wheat can be grown in the same field as oats that we may find out later it is also contaminated. If we are fed information in small doses, it's easier to swallow. Like the Equifax breach, which was revealed in stages.

    Also, are we certain that this stuff does not stay in the soil or contaminate water supplies?

    There is a huge learning curve to baking GF versus wheat-based. I think you would be surprised by some of the gums and fillers in GF breads to get them to "rise". Gluten is what make bread light, airy, and tall. Recreating that in a GF loaf is an accomplishment. I found that I felt much better not eating GF replacements bc most of them are just junk food masquerading as healthy, but that is my opinion as I could not digest them well.

    If you can eats almonds or like coconut, you may find some of the keto "breads" easier to prepare and more palatable. Not saying you should go full keto, just that you may like some of the "breads".

    Juries reach conclusions based on who has the most charismatic argument, not who has the best scientific evidence. Talcum powder doesn’t cause cancer to any appreciable extent, It’s simply rock dust. it does not have the special properties of black asbestos fibers which are 100% natural and quite dangerous. If you torture the statistics hard enough, you can find a link between just about anything and cancer. California was about to place winnings on coffee cups, but they had so many legislators who rely on coffee every day that they squashed that one.

    The deep pocket is always the target in a lawsuit, and lawyers spend their entire lives finding the most talented teams to recruit & manipulate juries who want to play Robin Hood.

    Nothing is 100% safe, people have died from drinking too much water.*
    Glyhosphate is safer than other herbicides, much safer than most. It’s safer than copper sulfate, which is used in organic farming. There is no magic garden of Eden to go back to.

    * A recent case happened after a contest sponsored by radio station in California KDND-FM (107.9). The radio station have been told that such a contest could be fatal, but they swatted away the warning, saying “we have them sign a waiver”.
    The deceased was a 28-year-old woman, with no existing health problems.

    I believe they only tested oats in this study. There are plenty of other crops that get douced with glyphosate. Monsanto should be burned at the stake for poisoning everyone and covering it up to make money. Jerks.

    The "organic" label is no guarantee, judging by the number of organic products on the above list found to contain glyphosate.

    Our neighbour is an organic farmer. Has he been known to spray his crops with chemicals prohibited on an organic farm? Yes, you bet. He advertises his cattle as "organic grass-fed beef" and rakes the money in. Where does he buy his winter fodder to feed his cattle? From cheap, non-organic sources, that's where. Claims all the subsidies allowable for organic farmers and sells his "organic" produce at a premium. He is not alone.

    Agreed.

    That makes it even more horrifying thinking you are shopping at Whole Foods and buying "Organic, grass-fed, hormone & antibiotic free" meat but you might be buying products with glyphosate and toxic ingredients after all :bang-head:

    That would explain a few things.

    I suspect this has happened with soya as well. I used to be able to eat it and then sometime in the late 90's and early 20's it started making me ill.

    Truth or consequences, nm
    Not likely on foods labeled "gluten free". At least not likely to exceed 20ppm the limit set by authorities for foods carrying that label.

    I'm not a certified celiac, but I often wonder weather I react to GF Oats also.

    Then why not buy some soy from your usual source(s) and send it to a certified lab to find it has any meaningful amount of glyphosphate residue? Just guessing whether this contains that will only give you worries, and zero information you can act on.
