Instant oatmeal, granola bars and cereals are among foods tested and found to contain potentially harmful amounts of glyphosate, a herbicide linked to cancer by California state scientists and the World Health Organization (Click here to read about chemical company Monsanto being ordered to pay $289 million to a school groundskeeper who got terminal cancer after using glyphosate-based Roundup, one of the world’s most popular weed killers).

The researchers in the study, conducted by The Environmental Working Group (EWG) and released last week, found glyphosate in all but 5 of the 29 oat-based foods tested.
