I try to learn something every day. Today, I learned that oats are not a safe food. Glyphosate, the main chemical in Roundup, is sprayed shortly before harvest to kill the crop, which accelerates the drying process (known as desiccating).
Many people eat oats to help lower cholesterol, improve blood sugar levels, they are full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and relieve constipation. If you plan to continue eating oats for any or all of the above reasons, the safe way is to make sure they are organic.
Roundup has been in the spotlight for many years now, and is known to cause cancers.
