Be careful, because depending on the oatmeal brand that you purchased, your oatmeal may be killing you. Quaker Oats is being sued for $5million by a man who claims they use a dangerous weed killer during production.

As reported by DailyMail:

Lewis Daly from Brooklyn, New York, has filed a lawsuit against the company, saying their advertising is ‘false, deceptive and misleading’.

He says the carcinogenic substance, glyphosate, is used to grow the oats and is sprayed on them during harvest.

The chemical, he says, undermines the Chicago-based firm’s claim their products are ‘100 per cent Natural, the New York Post reports.

Glyphosate is a widely used herbicide which the World Health Organization declared as ‘probably carcinogenic to humans’ in 2015.

It has been linked to a number of cancers, including breast, thyroid, kidney, pancreas, liver, bladder and myeloid leukaemia.

As well as using the chemical as a weedkiller in growing the oats, more ‘is sprayed on the oats as a drying agent shortly before harvest,’ claims Daly in his Brooklyn federal court lawsuit.

In April, a new series of tests by the Alliance for Natural Health-USA has revealed popular breakfast foods including eggs, bagels, wholewheat bread and coffee creamers include ‘alarming’ levels of a widely-used agricultural herbicide.

Ten of the 24 foods – both organic and regular – tested contained traceable levels of glyphosate.

It is the active ingredient in the world’s most widely used herbicide, Roundup, developed by Monsanto and first released in 1974.

Increasing scientific studies point to glyphosate residues being ubiquitous in the environment, raising fears it could be common in foods.

Glyphosate and its analogs are known endocrine disrupters for humans.

  1. Before I read the article, I was curious as to WHAT glyphosate is. After doing about 15 minutes of research, I have a much better understanding. Personally, I understand this person’s reason for suing the business. But it’s ABSURD as almost ALL major companies are using GMO products. You may as well sue the farmers for using Roundup on their crops!
    Clearly, we now know there is a problem with the product, now it just needs to be removed from the market. If it’s linked to a large amount of health problems, it doesn’t need to be in our grocery stores. Lawsuits may be a way to discourage other companies from using the product in the future, but that ripple effect will not hit for a long time. (Going on a limb, this wasn’t the plaintiff’s intentions to do this for a higher cause.)

    1. I partially agree with what you said, but I don’t think that it is absurd at all what he did. I also want to say that I feel like he took a stand and had the courage to sue this company for putting this harmful chemical in the product. It does spread awareness of GMO products and the health problems they can cause, and I do hope that all major companies will be taught a lesson from this and start removing these chemicals that will cause health problems in products as more people have the courage to take a stand and sue them for it, while spreading awareness at the same time. And while it was just one company that he sued, while all of them has this type of chemical and GMO products, that’s how things start to change better. When ONE person has the courage to take a stand to change things around for the better and expose these issues starting with one company, then more people are aware of these issues and then we continue to move up and expose TWO companies, THREE companies, FOUR companies, FIVE companies, etc. Until we expose all of them, and teach them a lesson to not use these chemicals that can kill us all, or else we will expose them, sue them, and fight back. It’s not absurd at all what he did, I COMMEND and APPLAUD him for what he did, because he stood up and exposed Quaker Oats for what they are doing with their products, and this is how a chain reaction starts. If one person can take a stand and fight back, then maybe we can all do the same. That’s how things start at times. And just like you said, BECAUSE of what he did, now we know that there is a problem with the product, and that it needs to be removed from the market. Nevertheless, thank you p2d2 for your comment, stay safe, and God bless!

      1. Oh yeah, course! When it’s used as a measure to give power back to the people, I’m 10,000% for it. Just tired of our western society abusing the tort laws we have in place. Not saying this is an example of this. Let’s hope this makes a positive change in the food that is produced.
