Just a heads up - the article found HERE is a little disturbing. 
Here are some of the highlights:

  • Roundup Ready soy is being cultivated on a massive scale across the globe, having devastating effects in many countries; one of the hardest hit is Argentina due to its dependence on soy as a source of revenue.
  • In Argentina, widespread reports exist of immediate illness from massive glyphosate spraying operations, but physicians and regulatory authorities continue turning a deaf ear.
  • One Argentinian scientist confirmed what other scientists had already found - that glyphosate (Type "glyphosate" into google and see what pops up!) can potentially cause birth defects, sterility, and neurotoxicity - but they attempted to silence him by threats and public ridicule.
  • Legislation requiring the labeling of genetically engineered (GE) ingredients is a key to slowing and stopping the production of GE foods by Monsanto and other biotech companies; one 2012 California ballot initiative has the potential for national impact, but victory depends on you - find out how you can help it pass, even if you don’t live in California.
