Is Your Oatmeal Poisoning You?

Is Your Oatmeal Poisoning You?

Mike Adams (Natural News; naturalnews.com/quakeroats) published the following report. I felt it was so important for you to see this that I’m presenting a good portion of it here.

Quaker Oats, owned by PepsiCo, has been sued over its “all natural” oats containing high levels of glyphosate weed killer (sold as “Roundup” by Monsanto).

The New York Times, forever a defender of Monsanto and GMOs, is blatantly lying to its readers by claiming the glyphosate found in Quaker Oats is nothing more than “traces.” In reality, the glyphosate contamination of Quaker Oats was tested at alarming levels by a St. Louis laboratory using the ELISA technique.

Natural News recently reported those numbers in a previous article. They were also released by the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH-USA.org). The tests revealed glyphosate in whole wheat bread, bagels, hot cereals, coffee creamers, instant oatmeal and more.

Deadly glyphosate now being sprayed on oats, wheat, barley and other crops as a dessicant.

Quaker Oats admits that its oats are sprayed with glyphosate by farmers. This fact is a total shock to most consumers who are completely unaware that glyphosate is now routinely sprayed on non-GMO crops. Via the NY Times:

In a statement, the Quaker Oats Company said that it did not add glyphosate during any part of the milling process but that it might be applied by farmers to certain grains before harvest… Oats are not a genetically engineered crop. But glyphosate is increasingly being used as a “dessicant” to dry out crops to speed harvesting.

The Quaker Oats company, apparently staffed by people who are scientifically illiterate, believes it can “wash off” the glyphosate even though it’s already soaked into the oats. As the NY Times continues:

The company said it puts the oats it receives through a cleansing process. “Any levels of glyphosate that may remain are trace amounts and significantly below any limits which have been set by the E.P.A. as safe for human consumption,” the company said.

“But one thing I’ve come to learn as a food scientist — I’m the lab science director of CWC Labs and the author of Food Forensics — is that glyphosate survives food washing and food processing! That’s how it ends up fully intact in beer, cereals, and other products.”

“Glyphosate residues are neither removed by washing nor broken down by cooking. The herbicide residue remains on food for more than a year, even if processed, dried, or frozen.” – The Dirt Cure Growing Healthy Kids with Food Straight from Soil by Maya Shetreat Klein MD.

Glyphosate Causes Cancer, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s

Check out this large collection of author quotes on glyphosate and cancer. Here’s just a small taste:

Following is a list of toxic effects caused by glyphosate, AMPA, and Roundup as revealed in animal studies, laboratory studies in human cells, and human epidemiological and clinical case studies: Severe liver and kidney damage + Chronic kidney disease; Disruption of hormonal systems which can potentially lead to multiple organ damage and hormone-dependent cancer; Developmental and reproductive toxicity, including damage to sperm and miscarriage and premature birth + Disruption of beneficial gut bacteria, favoring the growth of botulism-causing bacteria in cows; Damage to DNA; Birth defects; Neurotoxicity; Cancer.

Even at very low doses of exposure, glyphosate kills placental, embryonic, and umbilical cells. Glyphosate is associated with genetic damage (mutations), including chromosomal aberrations, even at doses below those recognized as “safe.” The herbicide acts as a potent endocrine disruptor, which can affect future reproductive health of young boys and girls. Glyphosate was even implicated recently in the development of autism, neurobehavioral problems in children, and other neurological diseases, including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Glyphosate – and other components inherent to using GMOs – are linked to conditions such as increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut), imbalanced gut bacteria, immune activation, food allergies, impaired digestion, and damage to the intestinal wall. Eating GMO crops impairs fertility in livestock. Above all, glyphosate impairs detoxification and was called out by the World Health Organization (WHO) as possibly causing cancer.

Glyphosate is toxic According to the Journal of Pesticide Reform, “Symptoms of exposure to glyphosate include eye irritation, burning eyes, blurred vision, skin rashes, burning or itchy skin, nausea, sore throat, asthma and difficulty breathing, headache, lethargy, nose bleeds, and dizziness. Glyphosate and glyphosate-containing herbicides caused genetic damage in laboratory tests with human cells, as well as in tests with laboratory animals. … Exposure is linked with increased risks of the cancer non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, miscarriages, and attention deficit disorder, as well as Parkinson’s disease. Exposure to mouse testicular cells (Leydig cells) resulted in a 94% reduction in sex hormone production. In a study on human cells, a non-toxic concentration of Roundup as small as “100 times lower than the recommended use in agriculture, significantly disrupted the activity of aromatase – an enzyme crucial to sex hormone production.

– Genetic Roulette The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods by Jeffrey M Smith

Monsanto has convinced millions of farmers, the American government, and the European Commission that glyphosate is safe. Yet the picture is not so clear. Studies published in 2010 show glyphosate causes birth defects in frogs and chicken embryos at amounts smaller than farmers and gardeners leave in food. Older studies document other dreadful effects of glyphosate, including cancer, endocrine disruption, damage to DNA, and deleterious malformations of the reproductive, neurological, and developmental systems of animals and humans. Researchers also link glyphosate to miscarriages in humans and livestock. Monsanto and government authorities have known about the toxic effects of glyphosate since the 1980s. And both the industry and regulators have kept the public in the dark. Genetic engineering, in other words, represents imperial politics of the worst kind, aiming at no less than the control of the world’s food by agribusiness.

A report commissioned by the provincial government of Chaco, Argentina, found that the rate of birth defects increased fourfold and rates of childhood cancers tripled in only a decade in areas where rice and GM soy crops are heavily sprayed with glyphosate and other herbicides. A review of studies on the health effects of pesticides used with GM herbicide-tolerant crops concluded that the precautionary principle was being flouted. Studies have linked an epidemic of chronic kidney disease in Sri Lanka and other countries to exposure to Roundup. The authors propose that glyphosate becomes toxic to the kidney when it mixes with “hard” water containing metals, or with heavy metals like arsenic and cadmium, where they are naturally present in soil or added as fertilizers. The authors argue that glyphosate binds to these substances and carries them to the kidneys, resulting in tissue destruction.

Be a Wise Shopper

Only purchase organic oats, wheat, rye, barley, breads, cereals, crackers, and beer, yes beer.  Beer is made with grains that are sprayed. When you eat out, it’s very hard to find organic products.  That is why it’s important to always choose gluten free including gluten free beer.  The products used for gluten free breads such as almond flour, coconut flour, garbanzo bean flour, or tapioca flour are not foods typically sprayed with glyphosate.

Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Carrot Cake

Recipe from The Juice Lady’s Sugar Knockout

Carrot CakeFor your next birthday party or special event, here’s a cake that is both delicious and healthful.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup ground pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. allspice

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut nectar

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Add unbleached parchment paper to the bottom of two 8-inch round greased cake pans. Combine all of the dry ingredients.

Whisk the eggs until frothy in a small bowl. Combine carrots, applesauce, and sunflower seed butter in a large bowl. Stir in eggs and combine. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and stir until well combined. Divide the batter between the two cake pans and bake for 25–30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Dairy-Free “Cream Cheese” Frosting

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup coconut yogurt, unsweetened
  • 1 cup cream off the top of a can of full-fat coconut milk (get coconut milk without
  • additives/emulsifiers like guar gum; you want only the cream off the top)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut nectar

Put all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Allow the mixture to set in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight. When icing has set, divide in two parts and spread a layer on the top of each cake layer. Chill and serve. Serves 8.

Note: If you are not sensitive to dairy, you can use a cream cheese frosting made with a healthy sweetener.


  1. OMGoodness Cherie, why you wanna dangle such a tantalizing and hypnotic pic of carrot cake, my 2nd fav dessert!

    Once I finish the 30-day detox, is this okay? I finish May 30th I think. Perhaps I’ll make it when I relocate to new residence.

    OMGoodness…but your marvelous program has pretty much tamed my love of donuts, cakes, pies. How do I know? While heading this morning to find the Colon Cleanse, Yams, Curry, etc. I passed by Krispy Kreme donuts.

    I could smell the dough cooking BUT I also smelled the immense quantity of sugar and I said “Nope. I’m on Cherie’s Detox and I want my next PET-Scan to reveal clean…as well as body weight continue to reduce!”

    I think I’ll save this for 4th July. But I’ll post it on my website, http://www.DontFearCancer.com for others to learn about Ranger Mike Adams and his warning.

      You can make the carrot cake when you’re done. So glad you’re getting off the sweets. They are so bad for the body. Happy cleansing!

  2. I just thought about it…I’ve been eating Quaker Old-Fashioned Oats for the last gosh 15-20 years. Wish there was a way I connect the dots and sue them.

    I’m throwing out the Quaker in the cabinet…had my son eating them because I didn’t want him to eat the quick-cooking Quaker.

    I’ll show him this article. Guess I’ll head over to Central Market and find an oatmeal he’ll like (mild autism).

    Do you have an oatmeal recipe or a particular product you’d recommend? Also we don’t do butter…he prefers organic peanut butter and raw honey with his.

    I’m trying to figure out how to gradually move him into the detox but at 6’5″/280+ I dunno. But he’s tried several of juices.

    At least he’s juicing oranges/apples…eventually he’ll find the cupboard bare…as soon as my pocketbook is full of organic $$$.

    • Cherie

      Get only organic grown oats. Your health store should have those. Don’t ever use quick cook oats. Happy juicing!

  3. Heather

    I’m curious about Organic Quaker oats and if they are ones to stay away from too??

    • Cherie

      Stay away from all Quaker oats products. But only buy organic oats and any other grain product. Only organic.
