New report on Glyphosphate (Roundup)

Greenpeace has released this report on the effects of Glyphosphate on humans and the environment. This herbicide is marketed by Monsanto as Roundup and is touted as the wonder cure for weeds. They have released genetically modified crop varieties known as “roundup ready” that resist glyphosphate. They are marketing a combination of the GM crops and Roundup herbicide to farmers while claiming they will have a negligible effect on human health and the environment. Have a look at this report and see how you feel.
