Glyphosate is not breaking down as promised

In 1996, New York’s attorney general sued Monsanto over the company’s use of “false and misleading advertising” about RoundUp. That case ended with Monsanto agreeing to stop calling Roundup “biodegradable,” and to pull ads claiming that Roundup was “safer than table salt,” “practically nontoxic,” and “stayed where you put it.”

Two decades after the advent of “RoundUp Ready” crops and their dominance in the agricultural marketplace, the evidence of their falsehoods abound: multiple studies have found significant levels of glyphosate in streams, soil, air, rainwater, and groundwater:

In our food: a recent study found that Glyphosate residues in the main foods of the Western diet – sugar, wheat, and genetically modified corn and soy – inhibit critical enzymes in mammals [which] manifests slowly over time, as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body.

In humans (study #1): No surprise, a study done in Germany in 2012 found glyphosate in all of the urine samples it took from non-agricultural workers in Berlin, at levels 5-20 times the limit for drinking water. Source: http://www.ithaka-journal.net/herbizide-im-urin?lang=en

In humans (study #2): in June 2013, another study found traces of glyphosate in the urine samples of individuals across 18 countries in Europe. Summary: http://gmoevidence.com/dr-hans-wolfgang ... ss-europe/ Original Study Report: http://gmoevidence.com/wp-content/uploa ... june12.pdf

In humans and animals (study #3): in January 2014, researchers from Germany and Egypt discovered that animals fed GM feed had much higher levels of glyphosate in their urine and organs than animals fed non-GM or organic feed, which translated into higher levels of the toxic chemical in humans as well.

Glyphosate causes birth defects, tumors, and reproductive disorders in animals, as well as sharp declines in beneficial insects

And often at dilutions far lower than the concentrations used in agricultural and even home garden spraying…

I am surprised that anyone thinks that stuff is safe.

Glyphosate was formulated as an industrial cleaner, to clean rusty, corroded tanks and piping when, no plants grew around or near where they spilled the gunk that was flushed from the pipes, Roundup was born!

Glyphosate, seemed to go away, to biodegrade, it looked as though it was no longer there,where it had been used, but it had entered the plants where it was greatly diluted and combined with mineral earth, but being water soluble it would liberate and leach to water table, stream, pond or river. GMO plant were made first to be able to withstand heavy spraying, that would kill all other plants that volunteer where the GMOs were grown. Weeds that got light over spray accepted and can now be sprayed with Roundup and not be bothered by doses that would kill any other plant.
There are thousands of pound poured onto the ground here every year.
