    Quaker Oats sued over glyphosate found in its 'all natural' oats...

    Not that we have this product in the house but ...

    Quaker Oats sued over glyphosate found in its 'all natural' oats... the truth is starting to come out about widespread glyphosate contamination of the food supply

    Quaker Oats, owned by PepsiCo, has been sued over its "all natural" oats containing high levels of glyphosate weed killer (sold as "Roundup" by Monsanto).

    The New York Times, forever a defender of Monsanto and GMOs, is blatantly lying to its readers by claiming the glyphosate found in Quaker Oats is nothing more than "traces." In reality, the glyphosate contamination of Quaker Oats was tested at alarming levels by a St. Louis laboratory using the ELISA technique.

    Natural News recently reported those numbers in a previous article. They were also released by the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH-USA.org). The tests revealed glyphosate in whole wheat bread, bagels, hot cereals, coffee creamers, instant oatmeal and more.

    Deadly glyphosate now being sprayed on oats, wheat, barley and other crops as a dessicant
    Quaker Oats admits that its oats are sprayed with glyphosate by farmers. This fact is a total shock to most consumers who are completely unaware that glyphosate is now routinely sprayed on non-GMO crops. Via the NY Times:

    In a statement, the Quaker Oats Company said that it did not add glyphosate during any part of the milling process but that it might be applied by farmers to certain grains before harvest... Oats are not a genetically engineered crop. But glyphosate is increasingly being used as a “dessicant” to dry out crops to speed harvesting.

    The Quaker Oats company, apparently staffed by people who are scientifically illiterate, believes it can "wash off" the glyphosate even though it's already soaked into the oats. As the NY Times continues:

    The company said it puts the oats it receives through a cleansing process. “Any levels of glyphosate that may remain are trace amounts and significantly below any limits which have been set by the E.P.A. as safe for human consumption,” the company said.

    But one thing I've come to learn as a food scientist -- I'm the lab science director of CWC Labs and the author of Food Forensics -- is that glyphosate survives food washing and food processing! That's how it ends up fully intact in beer, cereals and other products.

    "Glyphosate residues are neither removed by washing nor broken down by cooking. The herbicide residue remains on food for more than a year, even if processed, dried, or frozen." - The Dirt Cure Growing Healthy Kids with Food Straight from Soil by Maya Shetreat Klein MD.

    It has been done for some time in the UK. It is done to wheat and other grains.
    We are being poisoned all the time by dodgy practice's. It will be even worse if we come out the EU the conservatives will give the farmers a free hand.

    ... Although it is more expensive - perhaps we are better to buy organic foods?

    All the best Jan

    "But it's natural glyphosate" said a company spokesman from his private jet en route to the Seychelles
