Canadians may be shocked to learn that every time they eat a Timbit or enjoy a bowl of cereal, they are also eating a little bit of weed-killer.
A recent study by the Environmental Defence and Anresco Laboratories tested 18 random Canadian foods and found traces of the popular weed-killer, called Roundup, in 14 of them.
Among the foods confirmed to contain a big amount of glyphosate are Tim Horton’s bagels, Timbits, Kraft Dinner, Sabra hummus,Cheerios and other cereals, Oreos and Arrowroot cookies, Quaker Oats, and Pogos.
The bad news for Canadians is that the amount of chemical found in each of these foods was within the level that Health Canada considers not safe.
The group that ordered the study, Environment Defense, says that they are just trying to let Canadians know the facts that these chemicals are in our food and they are very dangerous.
