Chemicals In Your Cereal

Many genetically modified crops (GMO's) were made to be resistant to glyphosate (Roundup Ready crops) so that when Roundup which contains glyphosate was sprayed all over the fields it would kill basically everything in the field except for the crops.
This seems like a good solution for farmers to control weeds however it's a chemical disaster waiting to happen for our health. Humans are not resistant to glyphosate and GMO crops are unnatural.
"Out of 61 food samples tested, 48 had some glyphosate in them. The most heavily contaminated were made with conventionally grown -- as opposed to organically grown -- oats."
