SInce the inquiring monds have asked---

Swiss researchers of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich confirm earlier findings that the Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) toxin Cry1Ab produced for pesticidal purposes by genetically modified (GM) Bt maize increases mortality in the young ladybird larvae (Adalia bipunctata L., two-spotted ladybird) in laboratory tests.

Organ toxicity? How will America feel about having atrazine in their water supply?

Pointing to what it called "strong" epidemiological evidence linking atrazine to thyroid cancer, the panel states that the agency is currently acting with "inadequate information to assess carcinogenic potential." The European Union banned atrazine in 2004, based mainly on its tendency to run off into drinking water. A similar move by the EPA would cut into Syngenta's profits in the United States, where atrazine sells briskly as an herbicide for our massive corn crop.

Don't know about developing nations leaping ahead of America in GM planting, looks like GM crops are increasing year after year in America despite the shrill cries of FUD from the naysayers........

Wrong. Dead wrong. RoundUp is NOT a soil-based pre-emergent herbicide.

RoundUp is a CONTACT herbicide, with no lingering residual effect. It kills what it touches (unless you're talking about RoundUp Ready crops) then dissipates.

The only way that there is "land saturated with RoundUp..." is if somebody did something horribly stupid and wrong - and expensive - with the herbicide.
