Follow up…

This post is a follow up to the 020916 post on Round Up… The World Health Organization has declared the herbicide-glyphosate(Round Up)-a probable carcinogen in humans.The FDA will begin testing corn,soybeans,and other foods for glyphosate.In other words it may cause cancer.Also in short, what percent ends up in our food supply?In tandem with genetically engineered seeds, the herbicide can be sprayed on the plant to kill the weeds. Monsanto claims this is safe.The Center for Biological Diversity is citing that the demise of the monarch butterfly  is due to glyphosate.No shocker here-Monsanto keeps it lawyers busy.It filed a lawsuit to prevent California from adding glyphosate to it’s list of known carcinogens.Stay tuned.
