Roundup

Holland bans Roundup

It's not as bad as they make it seem, mainly due to it's short lifespan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glyphosate
Ingestion of more than 85 ml of the concentrated formulation is likely to cause significant toxicity in adults. Corrosive effects – mouth, throat and epigastric pain and dysphagia – are common. Renal and hepatic impairment are also frequent, and usually reflect reduced organ perfusion. Respiratory distress, impaired consciousness, pulmonary edema, infiltration on chest X-ray, shock, arrhythmias, renal failure requiring haemodialysis, metabolic acidosis, and hyperkalaemia may occur in severe cases. Bradycardia and ventricular arrhythmias often present prior to death.
chronic problems: long term use is more likely to have effects

Code: Select all

Endocrine disruption[edit]
In a study of rats and mice fed diets of containing 0%, 0.3125%, 0.625%, 1.25%, 2.5%, or 5.0% glyphosate for 13 weeks, endocrine effects were observed only in rats and only at the two highest doses. Male rats at the highest dose exhibited reductions in sperm concentrations that remained within the strain's normal range. Female rats in the highest dose group experienced a slight increase in the length of the estrous cycle.

Administering Roundup Transorb orally to prepubescent rats once a day for 30 days reduced testosterone production and affected testicle morphology, but did not affect levels of estradiol and corticosterone.[79]

In 2007, the EPA selected glyphosate for further screening through its Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program. Selection for this program is based on a compound's prevalence of use and does not imply particular suspicion of endocrine activity.[80]

Genetic damage[edit]
Several studies have not found mutagenic effects
I am opposed to the GM products that come with Roundup, due to it being an economic trap that supports overpopulation of the planet. By humans.

Don't drink any weed killer. That's my advice.

I know it's tempting. You see the five litre container, marked "do not drink" and you get an overpowering urge to drink it. You just have to fight it.

They should in fact study Roundup rather than glyphosate. The formulated commercial product is more toxic than the pure chemical.

When you have money and influence anything is possible. Monsanto is using the deflection strategy. It is now owned by Bayer btw. who are using a different approach to pushing the use of Roundup.
The EU parliament has brought in a ban from 2022

EU parliament votes to ban controversial weedkiller glyphosate
The European Parliament Tuesday called for the controversial weedkiller glyphosate to be banned by 2022 amid fears it causes cancer, a day before EU states vote on whether to renew its licence.

The Commission decision this time.

They are still doing the wrong tests. They test glyphosate and say it's safe. Roundup itself has additives that help it get inside weed plant cells. And human cells.

Presumably, whatever additives are in it are well known additives and subject to testing just like everything else.
I never stopped using roundup. When you read the wording of each scare article, it comes across a guesswork.
As in this case.
I've never seen genuine evidence of a real effect. And it's great stuff.

The other thing to bear in mind, is that it's far safer than the current alternatives. Apart from a huge increase in human menial boring labour.

There are statistics on farmers using it year after year for days at a time. The protective suits and filters should be standard.
It’s in the Monsanto book:
