Environmental group found traces of Roundup in breakfast cereals


A new report from the Environmental Working Group has found trace amounts of a controversial weed-killer in nearly 30 cereals and breakfast bars. 

The group tested the breakfast foods for glyphosate, an herbicide used in Roundup. It found 26 of the 28 cereal, snack bar, and oat products tested had trace amounts of glyphosate. 

EWG scientists say it was higher amounts than what is considered safe for children. 

Monsanto, which is the manufacturer of Roundup insists its product is safe. 

But a judge told Monsanto to pay a landscaper $78 million. That landscaper successfully argued Roundup gave him Cancer.
