Here are more examples why we should boycott Monsanto--
April 17th 2012 ~ Monsanto's Roundup is creating new weed resistance to glyphosate
Glyphosate use in agriculture has tripled since 1997 because farmers have wanted to use so-called "Round-up ready" crops. The glyphosate in Roundup was supposed to keep these crops weed free. However, USA Today quotes a Mississippi farmer, John McKee, who grows corn, cotton and soybeans on his 3,300-acre farm:.
"I've gone from budgeting $45 an acre just two years ago to spending more than $100 an acre now to control weeds."
According to the weed management technical lead at Monsanto, Rick Cole, the answer is for farmers to use "multiple modes of action," i.e. using more chemicals and start tilling the soil.
But Bill Freese, science policy analyst at the Center for Food Safety in Washington, D.C., says that herbicide-resistant crops are "taking us in the wrong direction. It's just not sustainable...It increases the chances they will get into our food and water."
Weed resistance to herbicides is now happening at a much quicker rate.
In a fully referenced and concerned paper Roundup and birth defects Is the public being kept in the dark? published by Earth Open Source in 2011, we read "Scientific research published in 2010 showed that Roundup and the chemical on which it is based, glyphosate, cause birth defects in frog and chicken embryos at dilutions much lower than those used in agricultural and garden spraying."
Among its recommendations are that EU regulators "look critically at the applications for GM Roundup Ready crops that are in the EU approvals pipeline instead of repeating outdated and misleading assurances about the safety of glyphosate and Roundup."
February 20th 2012 ~ Human health and fertility - and Monsanto's Roundup
A German university study has found significant concentrations of glyphosate in the urine samples of city dwellers. Glyphosate, it will be remembered, is the carcinogenic chemical found in herbicides such as Monsanto's Roundup. It is systemic poison preventing the formation of essential amino acids, weakening and killing plants ("weeds" are the ones intended) . We read today on GMWatch
"The address of the university labs, which did the research, the data and the evaluation of the research method is known to the editors. Because of significant pressure by agrochemical representatives and the fear that the work of the lab could be influenced, the complete analytical data will only be published in the course of this year."
The analysis of the urine samples apparently found that all had concentrations of glyphosate at 5 to 20-fold the limit for drinking water. Glyphosate-based weedkillers often also get sprayed onto railway lines, urban pavements and roadsides. Last year also saw the publication of two US Geological Survey studies (here and here) which consistently found glyphosate in streams, rain and even air in agricultural areas of the US.
Researchers tested Roundup on mature male rats at a concentration range between 1 and 10,000 parts per million (ppm), and found that within 1 to 48 hours of exposure, testicular cells of the mature rats were either damaged or killed.http://projectagentorange.com/boycottMonsanto.html
