Roundup: Birth Defects Caused By World's Top-Selling Weedkiller, Scientists Say | Common Dreams

The study, published in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology in 2010, found that glyphosate causes malformations in frog and chicken embryos at doses far lower than those used in agricultural spraying. It also found that malformations caused in frog and chicken embryos by Roundup and its active ingredient glyphosate were similar to human birth defects found in genetically modified soy-producing regions.
"It is well-documented that glyphosate [Monsanto's Roundup herbicide] promotes soil pathogens and is already implicated with the increase of more than 40 plant diseases; it dismantles plant defenses by chelating vital nutrients; and it reduces the bioavailability of nutrients in feed, which in turn can cause animal disorders," he wrote.
"We have documented time and time again scientists who have been fired, stripped of responsibilities, denied funding, threatened, gagged and transferred as a result of the pressure put on them by the biotech industry," he added.

Money is the problem, people's greed for money and the power and control they gain at the direct, negative expense of their fellow human beings. Such greedy souls are the curse on this planet.

If I were not a Christian, I would say exterminate them rather than the "weeds" killed by Roundup. What I want though is for them to change their greedy, lying hearts.

Monsanto, you stink. Monsanto executives and investors, you stink the place up. Convert, repent, and atone before it's too late for your souls!
