If you weren’t aware of the EWG’s immoral marketing tactics before, you are definitely aware now. They are essentially an activist organization that is funded largely by the organic industry. Their purpose is to make consumers fear non-organic foods in order to increase organic food sales. So, they test foods using non-validated testing methods for one single pesticide that consumers are afraid of. Then, based on the results, they set their own arbitrary safety level, which just happens to be under the levels detected. Now they can tell consumers that the levels they found are over the EWG safety levels.

What they fail to mention is that a 30 lb child would have to eat over 1,000 cups of Cheerios a day to reach the EPA’s extremely conservative maximum acceptable daily intake of glyphosate. Yes, that’s right...your child would need to eat over 1,000 CUPS/DAY for an extended period of time before the glyphosate may have some effect. Do you see how ridiculous this is yet?

To put 833 parts per billion into even more perspective, it would be equivalent to 14 min out of 32 years or 12 ft out of a drive from LA to NYC.

Are you still worried? This is the epitome of #fearmongering. They specifically tested children’s foods because us moms obviously worry about what we feed our kids. Any tiny seed of doubt they can plant will take root and spread, as it already has on social media and among moms. It’s a non-issue.
