Earlier this year, environmental health watchdog, Environmental Working Group, tested 45 conventional oat-based cereal products and found glyphosate in 43 of them.

Should I cut back on my "healthy" oatmeal based breakfast.

Just buy organic....many times bulk organic oatmeal is less than off the shelf boxed stuff anyway....same with most other grains and beans.
And even if it's not cheaper it's well worth it to know you are eating something without the 'additives'.
It's time to boycott those contaminated products completely.
