An international team of experts has concluded, based on the results of a comprehensive new animal study, that glyphosate, the primary active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, is highly toxic to humans – even at the very low doses that both Monsanto and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claim are completely “safe.” Monsanto is trying to discredit the findings.
According to the research, exposure to relatively small doses of glyphosate directly interferes with normal sexual development. It also damages genes and disrupts the body’s delicate microbiome, which represents the community of beneficial bacteria that live inside the gut and help digest food, while also supporting a healthy and robust immune system
Interestingly enough, the glyphosate-exposed mothers did not appear to be affected in this way by the deadly chemical. But their offspring were, suggesting that the chemical poison inflicts harm in ways that are still poorly understood by science.
Survival, body weights, food and water consumption of SD rats were not affected by the treatment with glypho- sate and Roundup. Clinical changes in the animals were not observed in the various groups. Overall, both gly- phosate and Roundup treatments seemed to be well tol- erated, which is consistent with previous experiments performed by the US NTP
Monsanto and Bayer are responsible for much of the toxic bastardization of our planet. Funny isn't it.

Monsanto and Bayer are responsible for much of the toxic bastardization of our planet. Funny isn't it. It's our Planet yet, these people, these companies seem to think they own it.
When Microsoft became 'too big' the big boys stepped in. I haven't seen them stepping up to the plate since, certainly not for the environment. Oh wait, could it be that they own them, therefore, It's no longer a # issue? Yeah.
I'm not sure there's a good ending to any of it. Not in our life time anyway.
Johnson’s lawyers have argued in court that Monsanto has “fought science” over the years and worked to “bully” researchers who have raised concerns about potential health risks of its herbicide product. At the start of the trial, the attorneys presented internal Monsanto emails that they said revealed the corporation’s repeated efforts to ignore expert’s warnings while seeking favorable scientific analyses and helping to “ghostwrite” positive papers.

Yup and here is where I find that the entire "Climate Change" community do not give a damn about the environment. A general consensus of shills, is all they are, covering up science such as this study by simply ignoring it.
Not one word ever mentioned about these toxic AgriChemical companies and their horrific destruction of this beautiful planet.
Monsanto/Bayer needs to be held accountable for their crimes.
The answer may come when we're all sick dying or dead. And by that time, none of this will matter. Because we'll be D.E.A.D.
