Honey bees exposed to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, lose some of the beneficial bacteria in their guts and are more susceptible to infection and death from harmful bacteria.

This is despicable. I have been sick not seeing barely any bees, ladybugs, and butterflies for quite a few years now. Wish they'd banned this now.
Thanks Frank

Roundup=death and/or cancer!
When you see it in your local store, ask to speak to the store manager and give him/her the TRUTH about that poison! At least some of them will respond and remove that crap from the shelves!

This good research is being overly hyped according the t authors of the study. Beware jumping to any conclusions before the science is validated. I am not saying glyphosate should not be banned but simply cautioning that this study is a great example of reading more into a study than is there.
