  1. The toxic food for profit is responsible for the drastic decline in the health of the people and animals!

    1. Yeah it is important to mention the animals too. My dogs today do better than my dogs in the past that I used to feed “good brand” dog food to. The “FDA Food Pyramid” was a catalyst to waking me up to many issues in this world.

    2. And one of the major causes of the decline of Monarch (and other) butterflies, as well as weakening and decline of pollinators in general. Monsanto cares nothing about the environment, they only care about making as much money as possible. We should NOT allow them to do this.

    1. Thank you Jen. A woman from another company reached out to me to show me theirs and I need to add them to this list. They’re called ZEGO. This is the link she shared with me to check them out. https://zegofoods.com/double-protein-gluten-free-organic-oats/ I think they look great, so I’ll work them into the article in the future (current commitments have me posting less). Thanks for your comment! Have a good one

      1. Thank you very much for helping regular folks find good nourishing food products for our families and friends.

    2. My daughter eats oatmeal every morning 🌄 she has special needs we were horrified to learn quaker oats loaded with round up and very indignant to change called Costco complained we are switching to from farmers wr know organic this may be secret cause if cancer babies and seniors love the hot oatmeal pray you get to newsmax with this story it’s all about money not healththe lies sicking

      1. Two things to help deal with glyphosate, are spirulina/chlorella, and activated charcoal. Which also help eliminate plastics from the body as well. win-win !

      2. Hi Daniel, thank you for this information. I was not aware of this. Also it goes without saying, but I thought it worth mentioning that when taking those you should have regular bowel movements and no issues there. That or some prunes or dragonfruits to supplement with alongside when you eat these detoxifying foods to make sure you’re not backed up and keeping those toxins in/re-absorbing them. I didn’t know that about plastics! Cheers, thank you for commenting! – John

  2. I just got off the phone with Nature’s Path and they do not test for glyphosate. Please correct this. Now I have to question the rest of the foods listed here.

    1. They are a big brand. It wouldn’t surprise me if they slipped through the cracks with the certified organic produce to meet demands, etc. Interesting comment thread on this article https://www.naturespath.com/en-us/blog/are-you-eating-glyphosate-organic-farming-can-help/. The question is, is there a way to sneak in glyphosated wheat legally when selling certified organic oats, which by definition I assume would exclude glyphosate? Faulty certified organic tests in the name of money sounds more than likely now that I think of it. Thanks for the comment.

      1. There is an issue of “don’t ask, don’t tell” with the farmers that aren’t required to disclose using glyphosate as a desiccant. USDA regulations require disclosure of use of glyphosate as a herbicide, but do not require disclosure as a desiccant or any other “off- label” usage. This is why we are still finding glyphosate in so-called organic food. Until certifications ask about, and test for, glyphosate use in all forms, this will be the result. Gotta love the lobbying for big pharma!

      2. “Gotta love the lobbying for big pharma” – especially with the bogus clown show we have in the world right now that everyone buys into. Fully sponsored by them!

      3. Folks we have the power to fix big pharma’s lies it’s all about a call revolt congress lite the 🔥

  3. We just watched ‘Percy and Goliath’. Canadian farmer taking Monsanto to court. Got us to look up Roundup issues. Saw your blog. My Dad was a dairy farmer and worried way back then about side effects of Roundup. Scary.

  4. Personally, I think a significant amount of gluten intolerance is actually glyphosate intolerance. I have been able to reintroduce grains into my diet at a reasonable level, as long as they are glyphosate free. No more stomach problems no more itchy spots on my skin and scalp, for that matter, almost all of my health problems have vanished.

    1. interested in the answer to this question as our 11 year old is having this same symptom lately…itchy spots on skin and stomach problems

  5. Thanks
    I’m a cancer survivor who watches what I eat, but have for some time been wondering about chemicals in my food.
    How about McCann,s Irish Oatmeal?

    1. Hi Anne,
      This link here shows McCann’s likely having glyphosate and it’s not certified organic.
      https://www.ewg.org/foodscores/products/072463000217-MccannsIrishOatmeal/

      Unless the company is outright telling you they don’t use glyphosate, they’re likely tainted.

      Thanks for the comment and good to hear you survived cancer.

      Something I recently started doing that you may already be well aware of (those on chemo bounce back fast when in ketosis), is fasting. Instead of always using insulin for energy and dealing with highs and lows of hunger and energy, I started eating just once or twice per day within a 6 hour window.

      The other 18 hours I drink just water.

      Sounds horrible, but if you have any body fat then you 100% start using it and you literally don’t feel hungry and can sometimes go a full day.

      Oatmeal and whatever other decent, healthy food (lots of good fat, not too many starches, not too much carbs/fruit/sugars) for the couple meals per day, and then just water the rest.

      I box 5 days a week and for some reason I still couldn’t get rid of some excess visceral fat I’d been lugging around for years until I started doing this.

      It’s used for longevity and helps for many illnesses. I got my mom doing it.

      Just wanted to share because if you’re looking at chemicals in your food (unavoidable in this day and age of weather mod imo), at least you can do other things as well to help counter the bad we face. You can google “intermittent fasting”

      Regards

      1. Hi
        Can I check with you which brands in the market can one buy and tested without glysophate?
        Appreciate a reply
        Thanks
        Jane

  6. Is One Degree Organic oats free of all glycosphate? This is sold at Costco stores claiming it is
    glycosphate free. Thank you for your response.

    1. Hi Carolyn, I’ve taken a look and they do look like a good company. I’ve noticed an increase in exposure to the glyphosate issue, and One Degree seems to be one of the ones raising some noise. I’ll have some more looks at them, but so far I think I should add them to this list. Thank you

  7. Are there ANY gmo and glycophosphate free boxed breakfast cereals available in the U.S. ? I became aware of this aspect of
    Our food supply and am trying to find some safer products. Not easy ! Thanks

    1. The truth of all this must be in-taken in stages, but the answer is that very few are free of it. However, it’s helpful to know the reason why boxed cereal was created. I remember reading it may have been Kellogg’s looking to keep the libido down of young and healthy males, so they created Corn Flakes. Upon a quick lookup of my notes, I have not jotted anything doing about this subject, but I did find another note on Kelloggs which should help to see the type of company we’re dealing with. “In 1877, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes) promoted circumcision as a cure for masturbation. He wrote, “The operation is to be performed w/ out administering anesthetic, as the brief pain attending the operation will have a salutary effect upon the mind, especially if it be connected w/ the idea of punishment.” Now I have not verified this quote, but it’s there for us to look into. Cheers Jack thanks for coming by the blog, much appreciate it!

  8. Farm to Table Foods Organic Ancient Super Grain Whole Grain & Oatmeal – 3 – 14 oz. bags. Ingredients: Organic oats, organic KAMUT khorasan, organic SPELT, organic rye, organic hard red wheat and organic flax seeds.
    .
    “Kamut® is not a grain, but a registered trademark name of an American company… that refers to a selected variety of wheat grown in Canada, that can hide traces of glyphosate.”
    .
    ^ @ https://musa.news/en/Kamut-is-not-a-grain-but-a-registered-trademark-that-can-hide-traces-of-glyphosate
    .
    “Glyphosate is not allowed to be sprayed on organic wheat according to USDA organic standards. Sadly, we did find the presence of glyphosate residue in organic wheat, and other organic grains, including organic barley, oats, SPELT, and einkorn.”

    Sorry to tell you. : ( Thanks for the work you’re doing to inform and warn people, and I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I figure you’d rather know than not.

    1. Thank you! I’m reading into this now after seeing your comment.

      A quick look shows that Kamut does seem to have addressed a glyphosate situation, at least for the public to acknowledge.

      I see glyphosate reports in 2015 and 2017 and then the Kamut® founder, a man named Dan Quinn, was quoted on the subject. Here’s the quote and the link to the interview on the Regenerative Agriculture Podcast: https://regenerativeagriculturepodcast.com/rebuilding-rural-economies-with-ancient-grain-and-regenerative-practices-with-bob-quinn/

      “…Bob goes into detail about how improved testing equipment led to a surprising discovery about minute glyphosate levels in their crops. Kamut International has been organic since its inception, but at one point almost a third of their farmers were sending grain that tested slightly higher than ten parts per billion in glyphosate. Bob was astounded when he discovered that glyphosate is so prevalent in American agriculture that trace amounts can be found in the rain during the growing season. Since this discovery, Kamut International has overhauled their testing protocols and mitigated trace glyphosate levels whenever possible.”

      So I will look more into Farm To Table and this Kamut® “ancient” grain they use, but will leave on this list for now. Do you have anything after 2020 in regards to glyphosate in Kamut®?

  9. Have you investigated Allyssa’s Healthy Oatmeal Bites? My whole family eats theses every morning.
    Thanks for all that you do.
    Julie

    1. Hi Julie, thank you for the compliment and the question! Upon looking I don’t see that Allyssa’s Healthy Oatmeal Bites do any glyphosate testing. I love these too. Years back we’d get the ones from Costco, I forget the brand. Might even be Allyssa’s. I ate so many though that I overdid it and haven’t had them since! But I do love these. However, just because a food is labeled Non-GMO does not make it free of glyphosate. Non-GMO labeled oats still use glyphosate as a desiccant or to quicken wheat ripening. At this point, unless a company is opting to do some type of Glyphosate Residue Free certification, I would assume it will have glyphosate. Thanks again for coming by the blog. I will look for alternatives!

      1. Hi Julie thank you and you’re welcome. Thanks for coming by. I guarantee you will feel a difference if you do. Buckwheat (not everyone’s favorite tasting wheat) or Einkorn wheat are a couple you can look into. Personally I’ve had to cut all wheat/gluten out of my life and I can’t believe it took me this long to try it. Many benefits from doing so.

  10. Hi, I thought it was strange that you added that “related rant” comment about environmentalists appearing to ignore the roundup issue and some others issues. I don’t even know what you are talking about. I’ve seen glyphosate and pesticides and roundup and Monsanto, bees, monarchs, etc. mentioned countless times by various environmental groups. I’ve signed countless petitions about them. There is one group in particular The Center for Food Safety that is all about fighting this stuff. And there is The Environmental Working Group, too.

    And that’s just to name a few off the top of my head.

    1. Yes agreed, I should delete that and any other published tangents my mind goes on when I am writing these posts. I’ve hulled down many, and will get more professional over time I assume.

      However, I was mostly thinking about the stratospheric injections of what, cloud? (i.e. the mention of nanoparticles).. that we all face everyday.

      This one seems hushed or simply ignored. And that’s the reason for that rant. Why?

      Thank you for these links. If you know any environmentalist groups fighting against these metallic, chemical clouds we all live and breathe under, that’d be great too.

  11. Interesting article, thank you!!

    Regarding:

    I’d like to look at the ingredients list of the same cereal box in the 1950’s.
    If you can find one can you please let me know.

    Have you considered searching for the Cheerioats box for the ingredients?

    I found a couple, this seems to be the best (the ingredients do not seem to be as “precise” as today):
    https://www.mrbreakfast.com/cereal_ucp_slideshow.asp?id=772&picid=2236

    Looks like:
    Ground oatmeal (75%), Corn and Rye Flours (20%), together with salt, sugar, sodium phosphate, calcium carbonate, iron, niacin, thiamine (vitamin b1), and riboflavin (vitamin g).

    Here are a couple more

    1. Don, thank YOU.

      I will integrate this information into the article as soon as I can (baby in the house means this year has been not quite productive.. but by choice so that’s ok).

      Very much appreciate it! – John
