Cheerios yay or nay?



How many times do you get "feed your baby cheerios because it is good for the finger grasping development"


I have never been the type of person to not question every little thing, even before health was a thing for me.


Here are my reasons to just say NO!


INGREDIENTS:

Whole Grain Oats (includes the oat bran), Modified Corn Starch, Sugar, Salt, Tripotassium Phosphate, Wheat Starch, Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols) Added to Preserve Freshness.





WHY IS WEED KILLER IN OUR "BABY SAFE" CEREAL?


It’s first important to understand how a chemical like glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, gets into our food supply.

You’ve probably heard of Roundup, a weed killer sprayed on genetically engineered corn and soybeans. But Roundup is also used as a desiccant – a drying agent sprayed just before harvest on oats and other grains to make harvesting cheaper and easier. This use of Roundup is what caused the high levels of glyphosate in the oat-based foods we tested.

Based on our research and other studies, glyphosate is likely present in foods other than oats. The full extent of glyphosate contamination remains to be discovered. The Food and Drug Administration has been testing foods for glyphosate since 2015, but has not made its data public.









Food Lobby Spends $101 Million in 2015 to Avert GMO Labeling.


The food companies that spent the most last year for anti-GMO-labeling legislation and other issues were Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Kellogg’s, Kraft Heinz Co., Land O’Lakes and General Mills. Disclosures filed by these companies reported $20.6 million in expenditures on K Street lobbying to fight GMO labeling and other legislative priorities.

Since 2013, the same six companies have spent a whopping $47.9 million to lobby against GMO labeling, among other issues.
