If you think Kellogg’s Kashi GoLean cereals are healthy, you might want to think again.
A recent finding has shed light on the fact that glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, along with its metabolite AMPA (aminomethylphosphonic acid), exist in the cereal.
It’s no secret that the chemical violence Monsanto engages in through continued use of its glyphosate is horrific; many people are aware that a research division of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the ingredient as “probably carcinogenic to humans.” Even more recently, Professor Christopher Portier, who was involved in the aforementioned finding, said that he has “no doubt” that glyphosate causes cancer, destroys healthy cells and leads to genetic problems. It’s “definitely genotoxic,” he says.
Unfortunately, this genotoxin has been found in Kashi GoLean. Yes, you read well, this genotoxins sits on the shelves in the supermarkets, waiting for you to ingest its health-destroying crunchiness.
An independent lab has carried out experiments which showed that a box of Kellogg’s Kashi GoLean Original cereal, which was not verified by the Non-GMO Project, was discovered to have high levels of glyphosate residue (0.68 ppm, shocking six times higher than the levels detected in previous independent experiments that GMO Free USA commissioned on Froot Loops). Moreover, the experiments also revealed even higher levels of AMPA:, 0.81 ppm.
Glyphosate in Kashi GoLean “shameless attempt” to unleash GMOs on customers
“This is a shameless attempt to unload Kashi’s GMOs onto unsuspecting customers,” says Luan Van Le, GMO Free USA’s Communications Director. “There are likely thousands of boxes on store shelves across the nation and we’re calling on the public to demand that store managers remove those boxes immediately,” said Luan Van Le, GMO Free USA’s Communications Director.
GMOFreeUSA.org also states that “The EPA has incrementally increased the allowable tolerance levels of glyphosate residues in crops since their introduction into our food supply.”
The site also aligns itself with experts who hone in on the fact that glyphosate causes health problems by mentioning its “endocrine (hormone) disruptive capability” and ability to tamper with embryonic kidney and placental cells, smooth muscles, organ function and more.
