The Deal with Glyphosate...

Glyphosate is a widely used herbicide that was first licensed for use in the mid-1970s.  Since then, it  has emerged in many common foods, and is implicated in the development of cancer.  It's worth examining what foods may contain this harmful chemical.

Is a Granola Bar 'Natural' if There's a Pesticide in it?

The new litigation against General Mills isn't focused on glyphosate's health effects, whatever they may be. Their claim, said lead attorney Kim Richman, is much simpler- that oats can't be "100% natural" if they're grown with a synthetic pesticide, and that calling them such misleads consumers.

The complaints allege that Post and parent company  Post Holdings Inc . tout their Shredded Wheat cereals as "100 percent natural whole grain wheat" and a "natural source of fiber" when they actually contain a chemical called glyphosate, a controversial weed killer that the  World Health Organization  said last year likely causes cancer.
