Excerpted:

WASHINGTON -- The chemical at the heart of the planet’s most widely used herbicide -- Roundup weedkiller, used in farms and gardens across the U.S. -- is coming under more intense scrutiny following the release of a new report calling for a heightened regulatory response around its use.


Critics have argued for decades that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup and other herbicides used around the globe, poses a serious threat to public health. Industry regulators, however, appear to have consistently overlooked their concerns.

A comprehensive review of existing data released this month by Earth Open Source, an organization that uses open-source collaboration to advance sustainable food production, suggests that industry regulators in Europe have known for years that glyphosate, originally introduced by American agricultural biotechnology giant Monsanto in 1976, causes birth defects in the embryos of laboratory animals...."


MAJIA HERE: I wonder what the synergy is across round-up, ionizing radiation and Bt (GM pesticide in corn and soy)???? Ever see Children of Men...?

One wonders how much time do we have left as a species?

  1. Can I make a joke....
    Maybe we will be like 150,000 different species because each "human" will be so different from each other in form.

    I estimate the potential release will be between 500 to 10000 of the WW2 nuclear bombs.

    Thats alot.
