The Environmental Working Group said the levels of glyphosate it found in cereals were many times lower than the safe levels set by the EPA years ago, and even below the much more stringent levels set by California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment.
A government website listing federal regulations shows the minimum glyphosate residue allowed on cereal grains is 30,000 parts per billion, far higher than the EWG recommendations.
Amnesty: Kabul attack on Shiites is 'war crime'
The spokesmen for the health and interior ministries both said that many people were killed and 35 others wounded. No group has claimed responsibility, but the bombing resembles previous attacks that have been claimed by ISIS .
Roundup is the most popular weedkiller in the U.S., and last week a court in California ordered the company to pay $39 million in compensation and $250 million in punitive damages to a school groundskeeper who developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after years of using Roundup at work.
"We don't know a lot about the effects of glyphosate on children", Lowry said. However the FDA has not yet released any official results.
In a statement to FOX Business regarding the report, a General Mills' spokesperson says, "Our products are safe and without questions they meet regulatory safety levels". "Comparatively, from everything that I see, this is a small risk", said Gould, who led a committee studying the safety of genetically engineered crops for the National Academy of Medicine.
The Environmental Working Group is disappointed that General Mills and the Quaker Oats Company have brushed aside consumer health concerns raised by new research that found the cancer-causing weed killerglyphosate in Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, Quaker Dinosaur Egg Instant Oatmeal and Cheerios.

Both Ms Simson and Mr Young said glyphosate formed a crucial part of Australian farmers' tool-kit to control invasive weeds in food crops. It didn't matter what the EPA says, the Environmental Protection Agency or the European Food Safety Agency (ph).
The environmental group said it made a decision to add a tenfold "margin of safety".
In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the World Health Organisation's cancer agency, concluded that glyphosate was "probably carcinogenic to humans". "The government must take steps to protect our most vulnerable populations", said Alexis Temkin, Ph.D, a toxicologist at the organization. In 2017, California listed glyphosate in its Proposition 65 registry of chemicals known to cause cancer. Glyphosate is commonly used by farmers across the industry who apply it pre-harvest. "And essentially we're just throwing it at them". "Monsanto said it is aware of about 5,200 cases where plaintiffs claim that they have been exposed to glyphosate-based products", one trader in Frankfurt told EURACTIV on condition of anonymity.
The EPA and the Food and Drug Administration say they are studying the current guidance for safe levels of glyphosate in food. But in a swift rejoinder, the NFF said the USA court decision was "in blatant ignorance" of science.
