Ever eaten Cheerios or Quaker Oats? Then you probably ingested this toxic chemical

Four out of five Americans are being exposed to a little-known chemical found in popular oat-based foods — including Cheerios and Quaker Oats — that is linked to reduced fertility, altered fetal growth and delayed puberty.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) published a study in the Journal of Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology on Thursday that found a staggering 80% of Americans tested positive for a harmful pesticide called chlormequat.

The ‘highly toxic agricultural chemical’ is federally allowed to be used on oats and other grains imported to the US, according to the EWG.

A decision last year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to allow the use of the pesticide chlormequat has brought a strong rebuke from the EWG.

The nonprofit EWG, a non-governmental organization, said EPA’s decision allows the use of “a highly toxic agricultural chemical for use on crops like oats, wheat, and barley grown in the U.S.” If the decision goes final, EWG said it “would mark the first-ever approval for using the dangerous pesticide chlormequat chloride on U.S. food.”

Interesting comparison, right?
