This past week Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut introduced legislation to dramatically limit American children’s exposure to glyphosate by introducing the bill, which would ban late-harvest spraying on oats and also require the federal government to test foods popular with children for the cancer-linked herbicide.
Her bill would also lower by 300-fold the permissible level of glyphosate residues on oats, restoring the legally allowed level to just .1 parts per million (ppm), according to a report from the Environmental Working Group.
The bill would also require the Department of Agriculture to regularly test fruits, vegetables and other foods routinely fed to infants and children for glyphosate residues. “We applaud Rep. DeLauro for advocating on behalf of children’s health,” said Colin O’Neil, EWG’s legislative director.
