Glyphosphate-based herbicides all work on the same biochemical principle -- they inhibit a specific enzyme that plants need in order to grow. The specific enzyme is called EPSP synthase. Without that enzyme, plants are unable to produce other proteins essential to growth, so they yellow and die over the course of several days or weeks. A majority of plants use this same enzyme, so almost all plants succumb to Roundup.
It is the image that was posted with the article. ( Or the one that was linked to the one linked in the OP ) It is the Fear of Monsanto... I love it too. It looks like an ant with arms in the mouth...
