3. This gets to the heart of the REAL problem with the GMO crops

 

It's not the genetic modification that is the issue. It is the reason BEHIND the genetic modification that is the issue.

The environmental consequences of glyphosate heavy use was never taken into account. The long term effects of constant microdoses of glyphosate have never been studied and are unknown.

We cannot say definitively that glyphosate is the actual cause of CKDu, but it certainly qualifies as a suspect and the research that was never done in the 70s when Monsanto introduced it as an herbicide needs to be done now.
