tests documented the presence of glyphosate, the main chemical in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller food in Kellogg's Fruitloops
"'Independent DNA lab testing has verified that 100% of the corn in Kellogg’s Froot Loops is genetically modified corn, containing DNA sequences known to be present in insecticide producing Bt and Roundup Ready corn. The soy also contained DNA sequences known to be present in Roundup Ready GMO soy. What’s more, tests documented the presence of glyphosate at 0.12 mg/kg, the main chemical ingredient of Monsanto’s best-selling Roundup weedkiller.

Bt crops, such as Bt corn, have been shown to cause serious health problems.The EPA has registered Bt corn as a pesticide as the crop makes its own insecticide. The makers of Bt corn, primarily Monsanto and Syngenta, are responsible for selling this food-stuff to companies like Kellogg’s, but they have the choice to source their corn from organic farmers, and simply don’t.

“. . .a toxin called Bacillus thuringiensis or Bt, designed to attack a corn pest called the corn rootworm. Rats fed Mon 863 developed several reactions, including those typically found with allergies (increased basophils), in response to infections, toxins and various diseases including cancer (increased lymphocytes and white blood cells), and in the presence of anemia (decreased reticulocyte count) and blood pressure problems (decreased kidney weights).”

In-vitro studies have found that the insecticides in the corn used in Froot Loops may be toxic to human kidney cells. At only 100 parts per million (ppm), Monsanto’s biopesticide led to cell death. Furthermore, they found that Roundup at 57.2ppm killed half of the cell population – 200 times below agricultural use.[...]"

Think about that the next time you reach for cereal when you get the munchies, or when you serve your chiildren breakfast.

i don't have to...

think about it.... it wouldn't be allowed here :)
And if by some weirdness it was it would have to be clearly labelled as GM food.
BUT it wouldn't be

And that is why

they are called fruitloops.
You have to be one to eat them...
And even if you aren't, you soon will be.

Fruitloops did make me think of...

Wallowitz from big bang theory :P

I'm betting Fruit Loops aren't the only

Kellog's cereal with GMO. The founder is spinning in his grave.

They certainly aren't... but

They certainly aren't... but the fact that they're showing up with detectable levels of Round-Up after all the processing they go through is pretty disturbing.

Why do you say that ?

With the added combination of a surfactant and many people not diluting it with 98% water, what else would you expect ?

What I find interesting is the verbage used in he Herbicide Technical Fact Sheet like :
Moderately and Slightly...
And WTF does "Practically non toxic" mean ?
It either is, or isn't toxic.

Anyway the sheet I was looking at may be found here :

ah but JFK...

And WTF does "Practically non toxic" mean ?

what it means is ''this was a vague enough term to keep our dog wanking fuckstick lawyers happy'' :P

on the effects of roundup, published 2009:


“Roundup has one of the most extensive human health safety and environmental data packages of any pesticide that's out there,” said Monsanto spokesman John Combest. “It's used in public parks, it's used to protect schools. There's been a great deal of study on Roundup, and we're very proud of its performance.”

That explains the ADD and ADHD epidemic.
