Roundup Red Alert! What You Need to Know About the Pesticide Poised to "Push Us All Off of the Cliff" The USDA just approved another GMO crop dependent on dousings of the pesticide Roundup. Here's what scientists say everyone who eats needs to know about this not-so-benign chemical.
RODALE NEWS, EMMAUS, PAčLast week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced its decision to allow farmers who favor genetically engineered seeds to grow GMO alfalfa, also known as GE alfalfa, anywhere they'd likečeven right up against a field of organic or non-GMO crops. Due to the very real risk that genes from GMO alfalfa will transfer to and contaminate the nation's organic and non-GMO alfalfa crops through cross-pollination, organic and conventional farming groups, dairies, consumer, and food-safety groups have united to send a clear signal that a large portion of the population doesn't want GMO-laced food.
Roundup creates conditions for estrogenic toxin and neurotoxin buildup in foodčand in us.
Huber, one of the world's top researchers of glyphosate, says we're in "epidemic mode" right now in terms of plant diseases induced by Roundup use. These plant diseases could affect humans and livestock eating the diseased plants, too. As Jeffrey Smith, founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology, points out, some of the fungi that thrive on glyphosate produce harmful toxins that can enter the food chain, either in human food or animal feed. Smith cites a UN Food and Agriculture Organization report that links one such fungus, Fusarium, in the food chain to certain cancers, a blood disorder, and infertility in animals. Smith says USDA researchers have found a 500 percent increase in Fusarium root infection when glyphosate is used on Roundup Ready soybeans. (This toxin can also appear in corn, wheat, and other crops.) "Like glyphosate, Fusarium toxins accumulate in our bodies, too," says Huber.

Roundup is not a pesticide (pesticide is a meaningless word), Roundup is an indiscriminate herbicide, eradicates all plants, pests or not. What's needed is a discriminating pesticide that eliminates widdle ignoranus Billys... a Billycide! LOL-LOL
