Questions about the safety of a popular herbicide made by Monsanto Co have resurfaced in a warning from a U.S. scientist that claims top-selling Roundup may contribute to plant disease and health problems for farm animals.

I've been scared of Roundup for quite some time, as well as the GMOs. It's time people that can actually do something about it (if even they can) get more involved. Thanks, Cal.

That'd be right after all they are the monsters of the chemical and food chain market. Yep think about what artificial sweeteners do to your body and people ingest it by the tons daily across the world in diet coke, zero and artificial sweeteners called Aspartame YEP this is the wonderful company who invented it. Shame on them! They kill indirectly thousands of people daily or if not they create such potent diseases and mostly no-one realizes that these so called food sweeteners are a silent poison so why not this..huh? After all Monsanto decided to create Roundup but it failed to bring in the desired money, so they took it back to the lab, scientists fell upon another way and bingo its in OUR FOOD...as artificial sweeteners..www.sweetpoison.com check it out. So nothing surprises me with this evil inhuman company. They're laughing all the way to the bank....oh gosh i could go on.... but i wont. Never use such a pesticide but create a great one with a litre of water to 10 teaspoons or so of dishwashing liquid... organic would be good. or squash a garlic, add some water and a bit of vinegar and bingo another cheap way of killing off bugs rather than killing yourself off.

In an odd kind of way this is very good news.

Many farmers from numerous countries have found that animals fed round up ready or BT crops are prone to spontaneous abortions and sterility. This study seems to show the mechanism by which it is happening. I don't know if the info will just be ignored or buried but if I were a farmer harmed by these products I would be using this study as the basis or a lawsuit. That can only help others to see how harmful anything made by Monsanto really is.

I am but one individual. But, I vote with my wallet. If Monsanto is the parent company, I will not buy it.
