Alachlor is an herbicide from the chloroacetanilide family. Its mode of action is elongaseinhibition, and inhibition of geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate (GGPP) cyclisation enzymes, part of the gibberellin pathway. It is marketed under the trade names Alanex, Bronco, Cannon, Crop Star, Intrro, Lariat, Lasso, Micro-Tech, and Partner. Use of alachlor as a herbicide has been banned in the European Union.

Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov and his team fed three generations of hamsters varying diets (one without soy, one with non-GM soy, one with GMO soy, and the final with higher amounts of GMO soy). By the third generation, the pups from the fourth group suffered a high mortality rate and most of the adults were infertile or sterile.
Earlier in 2010, Surov co-authored a paper in Doklady Biological Sciences, recording the incidence of hair growing in recessed pouches in the mouths of hamsters, most prominently in those of third-generation hamsters fed GM soy. “This pathology may be exacerbated by elements of the food that are absent in natural food, such as genetically modified (GM) ingredients (GM soybean or maize meal) or contaminants (pesticides, mycotoxins, heavy metals, etc.)
Just five years earlier, Irina Ermakova (also with the Russian National Academy of Sciences) noted in her study that within three weeks, over half of the babies from mother rats fed GM soy died—over five times the mortality rate in the non-GMO soy control group. The pups from the GM group were also smaller. Later, Ermakova fed all the rats in her laboratory a GM soy diet. Two months later, the infant mortality rate reached 55 percent. The testicles of male rats fed a GM diet, where once pink, turned blue.
I'm only asking because you guys recently signed the Monsanto act which makes them exempt from being sued.

Of course. But as I stated above, which I missed in the OP, was that Monsanto did not have any labels saying how to handle this stuff.
Just direct people to spray it on their crops..
**Addition to OP**
I am on a tablet; this thing acts up sometimes, and that is why I was not able to post the pictures I wanted too. I also wasnt able to quote the first link (copy >quote>paste) because the website+tablet wouldnt let me copy the text.
You would of seen it in the link if you read it. .

So I ask you again, how do you feel about not being told the truth about what you seem to be constantly defending?
I don't like being lied to by anyone.
Who am I "constantly defending"?
