(HP) If you started your day off with a whole wheat bagel and a bowl of instant strawberries and cream-flavored oatmeal today, you might think you made some fairly healthy breakfast choices.
You might want to think again.
According to a report released Tuesday by the Alliance for Natural Health USA, testing procured from an independent laboratory found detectable levels of the herbicide glyphosate in oatmeal and bagels as well as coffee creamer and seven more products, for a total of 10 out of 24 breakfast food items showing levels of glyphosate – a chemical the World Health Organization’s cancer experts have linked to cancer.
Notably, some of the highest levels of the chemical were detected in organic food products, including eggs marketed as “organic, cage-free, antibiotic-free” eggs; and in organic bagels and bread. Indeed, the organic cage-free eggs contained more glyphosate than regulators allow, the group said. The group also tested flour, corn flakes, instant oatmeal, yogurt, frozen hash browns, and coffee creamers.
The laboratory that conducted the tests was Microbe Inotech Laboratories in St. Louis. Microbe, founded by former Monsanto Co. scientist Bruce Hemming, has been sought out by an array of food companies, consumer groups and others to conduct glyphosate residue testing over the last few years.

(Natural News) ANH-USA results, found at this link, use generic descriptors of food samples, without their brand names. But Natural News can now exclusively report the brand names behind these foods which tested positive for glyphosate, according to lab results provided to Natural News:
• 1327.1 ppb – Quaker Instant Oatmeal, Strawberries and Cream
• 491.9 ppb – Thomas’s Whole Wheat Bagels
• 151.5 ppb – Rudio Multibagels
• 403.0 ppb – Pepperidge Farm Whole GrainBread, 100% Whole Wheat
• 136.4 ppb – Dave’s Killer Whole Wheat Bread
• 34.4 ppb – OreIda Hash Brown Potatoes
• 24.1 ppb – Russet Potato
• 260.6 ppb – Cream of Wheat Hot Cereal Whole Grain
• 104 ppb – 365 Coffee Creamer
• 86 ppb – Original Silk Soy Creamer Non GMO
In addition, results of over 100 ppb were also found in eggs, but extracting glyphosate from eggs hasn’t yet been validated with the ELISA method, so we’re not including those results here.
