According to a press release and corresponding blog posts, a new study published by the Alliance for Natural Health tested several popular breakfast food items and they were positive for residues of the popular herbicide. Most concerning is that the residues are even showing up in organic products. (Interestingly enough, the only products that had higher residue levels than allowed by the EPA were actually organic products.)

AmandaMy name is Amanda. I’m the proud daughter (and sister!) of conventional farmers in Southwest Michigan. I’m also a practicing attorney. For 26 years, my family ran and supplied a roadside market selling our own fresh fruits and vegetables. We now farm corn and soybeans.

Unfortunately, misinformation about food and agriculture is pervasive these days. My goal is to help educate consumers about conventional farming and give people a glimpse into how our food is raised and why certain production methods are used.
