Sure I do...it was relative to the seed inputs derived from cross pollination and or 3rd party purchasing, basically Monsanto was able to force alot of conventional farmers into their game...again because of mono cropping. naturalsociety.com...

of course Monsanto agrees with you:www.monsanto.com...

key phrase: Monsanto had a long-standing public commitment that “it has never been, nor will it be, Monsanto policy to exercise its patent rights where trace amounts of our patented seeds or traits are present in a farmer’s fields as a result of inadvertent means.”

When many plants cross pollinate over a mile its very easy fora farm to rise above the threshold of "trace amounts" when considering square miles of mono-crops

Well, those guys that bought the soybean seed from the elevator, they knew what they were doing, trying to skirt around the law.

Thing is, if you want to grow Roundup Ready Soybeans or Canola, you are stuck with buying Monsanto's seed.

You can't skirt around this by selling to the elevator and then buying it back.

It's expensive yes, but there are alternatives.

The way the law stands now, if you are growing Roundup Resistant crops, you have to have signed a contract with Monsanto. You don't want to grow Roundup Resistant crops, you buy certified seed of another variety or carry your own non GMO seed over from year to year.

Round Up isn't the only non selective herbicide, there is a brand called "Liberty Link" by Bayer. Yes there's Liberty Link "ready" crops just like "Round Up Ready" Crops. You can't mix the two or you will kill the whole crop. It's not similar to Glyphosate, but different since it's a contact herbicide. Anyone know if this has been studied in animals and humans too? Differences?

I'm aware of the liberty link stuff but have done little research on it.

I'm sure it's going to be more and more pervasive in our food supply as well, as it too is used as a pre harvest weed control/dessicant.

From what I know, Liberty herbicide is worse than Roundup.

Well doesnt Bayer own Monsanto now? Theres also Syngenta and Cargill etc...sadly whats most important is what this crap is doing to our soil and water...

Thats the real issue...not lawsuits

Yes, and they fight any kind of labelling laws tooth and nail so we can't even make informed buying decisions.

Many people would pay more to know that their food supply has no residues in it.

Yes, yes, and yes. Give us some labels so the people can decide for themselves.

I think monsanto knows what the outcome would be if those labeling laws came to pass, that is why they are fighting them so hard.

So many swear by top name brand foods. What they don't realize is what's in them.


Currently, U.S. regulators allow a very high level of daily glyphosate residue in America’s food. The acceptable daily intake (ADI) limit is set at 1.75 milligrams per kilogram of bodyweight per day (written 1.75 mg/kg bw/day) in the U.S., versus a more cautious 0.3 mg/kg bw/day in the European Union. Tolerances have been set through the submission of corporate-sponsored studies and industry influence on the regulatory process.

Good article you linked.

You can drink a whole quart of it and it won't hurt you was the claim made by Patrick Moore, kinda funny video.
He certainly backed of on his claim when it became apparent there was some there ready for him to drink.

Even the Wikipedia entry looks pretty ugly.
The most noteworthy issues are bactericidal effects (because these are likely to upset the gut flora and cause disease through that, and especially neurotoxic effects in reasonably low doses.

www.fao.org/fileadmin/templates/agphome/documents/Pests_Pesticides/JMPR/Report12/Glufosinate.pdf

The enzyme targetted is one also relevant to human metabolism, though higher doses would be needed to affect internal metabolism.
from wikipedia:



The herbicide is also persistent; it has been found to be prevalent in spinach, radishes, wheat and carrots that were planted 120 days after the treatment of the herbicide.[2] Its persistent nature can also be observed by its half-life which varies from 3 to 70 days depending on the soil type and organic matter content.[2] Residues can remain in frozen food for up to two years and the chemical is not easily destroyed by cooking the food item in boiling water.[8] The EPA classifies the chemical as 'persistent' and 'mobile' based on its lack of degradation and ease of transport through soil.

Hot off the presses- the first attempt to bring data quantifying glyphosate residues in food into the reach of the public.
The book is pretty rough as there were difficulties in getting the data and the author has pushed it through to get into the public domain fast:

The FDA was supposed to do a similar study but suspended the program saying they didn't have adequate testing procedures, which I find hard to believe.


Food has never been less safe and more contaminated in the U.S.A. It was a meltdown up there in the perishables food industry which is curiously populated with professional sports players and crazy military personnel and evil cultists. Since the second half of Obama's presidency, mainly since around 2012, a major contamination crisis has been quietly ignored by the American media and all the government agencies. There were countless reports of an endless array of contaminations in nearly all the major food companies. We got human remains such as ground up bones in dry foods such as crackers and cookies. Reports of human remains in about every food type, notably chopped up intestines passed off as peppers. Reports of tiny glass shards in Nabisco crackers. Particle board grounds and wood chip grounds used as fiber substitutes in packaged snack foods. Human fat being blended with cooking oils. Urine in soda. Feces in cold coffee drink. The list goes on and on and this problem has no signs of slowing down. Who knows what else they're putting in the food?

The problem became so bad that some countries such as Russia cut off all imports of American perishables. If you make a report to any government agency it gets dutifully ignored. This makes you wonder who is in control, because it is obviously not Americans running the food industry anymore. There was a huge food supply rush by the government right before the contamination crises began.

So when you say you find that hard to believe now you know why. The FDA doesn't function.

On a side note it was recently reported that Coca-Cola employees in ireland were contaminating the company product with human waste. It's like that in the U.S.A. but 100 times worse.

To add insult to injury there's countless innuendos being printed on the packaging and labeling that allude to the contamination. Sort of like a tease. But what can the average middle class American do about it? Not a damn thing. Question is... who? And why? I kept my ears to the ground and picked up on some hints that the U.S.A. was secretly invaded by Russia and China but that was a rumor. Whatever it is it isn't the American way.

I'm not aware of any of that!

Do you have any links?
