USA today said that herbicide has been found in over a dozen cereals and snack bars. Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup was found in 26 of the 28 products. This story was very easy and interesting to read, because USA put the scientifically words in the article that no one would understand and put it into words that make since.
