From glyphosate to modified human genetic genomes found in vaccines, we and our children are under attack and our health and well-being are at danger. I have posted on some of these risks and hazards hereabouts and now I find this article which is along the same lines. Glyphosate is poison, it kills slowly and through diseases like cancer and it is being sprayed on crops to kill the weeds so it is easier to harvest these crops. Additionally, many of our crops are GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) created in labs to be resistant to glyphosate and its cousins. Problems arise from the fact that they are also heavily sprayed and pick up that chemical into their tissues and then processed as our food or as food for food animals.

Weedkiller found in wide range of breakfast foods aimed at children
Cancer-linked herbicide, sold as Roundup by Monsanto, present in 45 products including granola, snack bars and Cheerios

Significant levels of the weedkilling chemical glyphosate have been found in an array of popular breakfast cereals, oats and snack bars marketed to US children, a new study has found.

Tests revealed glyphosate, the active ingredient in the popular weedkiller brand Roundup, present in all but two of the 45 oat-derived products that were sampled by the Environmental Working Group, a public health organization.

Nearly three in four of the products exceeded what the EWG classes safe for children to consume. Products with some of the highest levels of glyphosate include granola, oats and snack bars made by leading industry names Quaker, Kellogg’s and General Mills, which makes Cheerios.

One sample of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats measured at more than one part per million of glyphosate. This is still within safe levels deemed by the Environmental Protection Agency, although it is currently working on an updated assessment.

The EWG said the federal limits are outdated and that most of the products it tested exceed a more stringent definition of safe glyphosate levels.

“I grew up eating Cheerios and Quaker Oats long before they were tainted with glyphosate,” said EWG’s president, Ken Cook. “No one wants to eat a weedkiller for breakfast, and no one should have to do so.” Cook said the EWG will urge the EPA to limit the use of glyphosate on food crops but said companies should “step up” because of the “lawless” nature of the regulator under the Trump administration.

“It is very troubling that cereals children like to eat contain glyphosate,” said Alexis Temkin, an EWG toxicologist and author of the report. “Parents shouldn’t worry about whether feeding their children heathy oat foods will also expose them to a chemical linked to cancer. The government must take steps to protect our most vulnerable populations.”

The findings follow a landmark decision in a San Francisco court last week to order that Monsanto pay $289m in damages to Dewayne Johnson, a 46-year-old former groundskeeper. A jury deemed that Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller caused Johnson’s cancer and that it had failed to warn him about the health risks of exposure.

Monsanto, which said it will appeal against the verdict, has said glyphosate has been used safely for decades. In 2015, the EPA said that glyphosate has a low toxicity for people but could cause problems for some pets if they consume the chemical.

However, the World Health Organization has called glyphosate a “probable carcinogen” and authorities in California list it as a chemical “known to the state to cause cancer”.
In April, internal emails obtained from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed that scientists have found glyphosate on a wide range of commonly consumed food, to the point that they were finding it difficult to identify a food without the chemical on it. The FDA has yet to release any official results from this process.

There was no indication that the claims related to products sold outside the US.

US farmers spray about 200m pounds of Roundup each year on their crops, including corn, soybeans, wheat and oats. It can also be used on produce such as spinach and almonds.

A General Mills spokeswoman said: “Our products are safe and without question they meet regulatory safety levels. The EPA has researched this issue and has set rules that we follow, as do farmers who grow crops including wheat and oats.”

A Kellogg’s spokesman said: “Our food is safe. Providing safe, high-quality foods is one of the ways we earn the trust of millions of people around the world. The EPA sets strict standards for safe levels of these agricultural residues and the ingredients we purchase from suppliers for our foods fall under these limits.”

Quaker Oats continues to “proudly stand by the safety and quality of our Quaker products”, a spokesman said.

But Cook said that General Mills and Quaker Oats are “relying on outdated safety standards”.

“Our view is that the government standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency pose real health risks to Americans ­– particularly children, who are more sensitive to the effects of toxic chemicals than adults,” he said.

This article was amended on 16-17 August because an earlier version said: “One sample of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats measured at more than 1,000 parts per billion of glyphosate. The Environmental Protection Agency has a range of safe levels for glyphosate on crops such as corn, soybeans, grains and some fruits, spanning 0.1 to 310 parts per million.” This has been corrected to make clear the 1,000 parts per billion is within the EPA range.

I'm curious, are you aware of the types of insecticide that cause cancers?  Is it all of them?  I have a can of Raid that I spray on the outside of my house around doorframes and windows to prevent bugs from getting in.  It's been successful but I do worry about using it at all.

Personally, I treat all insecticides as potentially cancer-causing. If you apply them correctly, even the cancer-causing can be relatively safe. If you have problems in places where people eat and food is prepared, I'd stick to Pyrethrin and synthetic form, Permethrin. Pyrethrin is made from chrysanthemums and can be toxic at high concentrations, but is generally safe for animals and humans.

Have you tried food-grade diatomaceous earth?

Good idea! That stuff works wonders on fire ants and the food grade (only one for consumption by humans/animals) can straighten out your gut too. It does a number on any intestinal parasites, like worms in cats and dogs (and humans). BTW: The general use grade is high in heavy metals and some toxins, but is not toxic to people except if ingested in moderate amounts, not like what one may consume from casual contact.

Oh yeah!  I have an opening to a sewer drain near my back steps and I spread the stuff around it and make a line of it on each step leading to my house when the cockroaches start to appear each spring.  A bit in my kitchen cabinets and around the baseboards of my house has kept the bugman bills at bay.

I'll give the DE a try. I've only heard of it being used in pools so this is a new one to me...

Quote:How does diatomaceous earth kill bugs? With the help of its razor-sharp particles! The diatoms that make up diatomaceous earth have microscopic razor-sharp edges. Although not harmful to large, strong surfaces, these tiny razor blades are detrimental to ants, bed bugs, fleas and other crawling insects.
The sharp edges of the diatoms cut through the insect’s waxy outer layer during contact, allowing moisture to escape from the insect’s body. The absorptive capabilities of DE insecticides like Last Crawl then help to draw moisture from the insect’s body. By disrupting an insect’s delicate balance of water, it is unable to survive, resulting in death by desiccation.
An insects’ movement across the diatomaceous earth also contributes, by helping the sharp edges to lacerate the bug’s body. Essentially, when crawling insects come in contact with diatomaceous earth it is like walking across shards of broken glass.

I pretty much stopped eating cereals a long time ago.  Part of me thinks they are poisoning our food supply by design.  There's a great podcast on Spreaker called "Primal Edge Health" where the guy who runs it does a a whole bunch of interviews and discussions about all things food related.  He's on the Alternate Current Radio network or has a YouTube channel. Not here to shill him but between his work and Jay Dyer's "Globalist Book Series" I'm pretty much a meat and fish only guy, and really think the elites have weaponized food for a long time.
