This article was not written by researchers. It was written by two people who do not have any life sciences education whatsoever, who tried to link glyphosate to every bad thing under the sun (okay, I exaggerate a bit) without conducting a single experiment to support their assertions. Although this article is labeled as a review, I cannot even call it that. A review article merely compiles the known information on a specific subject. It is not a collection of extrapolations as this piece is.
OK. I am not so familiar with research articles and how they’re written as to spot one that is not genuine.
It sounds so much like the Alar stuff, and DDT before that.
Now, mind you, I do have a problem with food companies trying to breed Round-Up resistant produce for human consumption so they can use Round up on the plants and not have them die. I don’t relish the idea of eating something that has been sprayed THAT much.
HOWEVER, I certainly think the danger is overblown.
The problem is, if someone reads the Gospels at all, one can immediately see that there was no shortage of people for Jesus to heal of any number of various diseases. If the organic food people were correct in their idolization of organic foods, then theoretically, those people in Jesus’ day should have been healthy as all get out. They certainly ate an all natural, no additive, high fiber, organic diet.
And they weren’t.
There is no one cause for most human disease, although diet can be a contributing factor.
THe dose makes the poison, not the substance itself.
