How would a GM crop,invented in the USA ,be tested on pollinators in Europe.? It is illegal to grow unregistered (tested) GM crops in most EU countries..or so I believed.

You do realise glyphosate is made by a large no of chinese companies, we get the 50% commercial grade for about 10 us a litre. Its out there - forever - but dont worry, murica will be eating gm everything instead.

Who /what is Murica?

You seem a tad annoyed that people are trying to limit the amount of pesticides they are ingesting?

Its not the ultimate answer to spray everything with Round Up you know.. It solves the immediate problem,but you have no idea about the long term-damage
It stuns me that in less than 50 yrs people have gone from being horrified about deaths from cancer, .to accepting it as something they will get before they die. That it is a legacy passed on to their kids and grandkids. They watch benign looking adds on TV to 'bake cakes to raise money for cancer nurses' They never ask why do we have this? and why is it getting worse not better.

Science is NOT solving it...

The link between pesticides and cancer is solid, As is the link between the food chain and cancer (cakes ? are people mad) As was the link between smoking and cancer.. we tackled that... but left the food chain and big agri alone..

We need to wake up and realise that we are the collateral damage involved in a few people making obscene amounts of money. People who don't give a damn about the planet or the future

Like me, live somewhere where there are is no poisonous fauna, but several types of flora that can and do main and even kill, try growing edible crops there, then tell me not to use herbicides, for now i suggest you go to your local supermarket and protest loudly there, or even better on facebook where nobody of adverse views is listening.

Try complaining about the generically modified food you already eat too...

Murica is a country south of canada eh, i hear the locals talking about it all the time, the ones with sunburnt necks, wearing white silk pajamas with hoods, or pretending to be policemen.

Relevant phrase "superweeds that have grown resistant to Glyphosate"
And the circle continues

Bollocxx, as i said you clearly know nothing about the stuff in the tropics. A thorn tree will kill you, a manchineel will kill you and any livestock around, a logwood tree cant be cut down with anything less than a tungsten carbide chainsaw. Nothing to do with chemicals, everything to do with the warfare that is nature.

If we want to control nature we have to effectively fight it, to grow the things we want, to be the super predator that we are. If you disagree thats fine, but stop posting on the net, go catch yourself an animal or plant some grass seeds, wrap yourself in the fur/plants and start chewing on it...

Please re-read the site rules with particular attention to Rule 1 because uk_grenada and Ingles you are skating on very thin ice at the moment and I am not prepared to allow this to continue. Take a deep breath, take your hands of the keyboards and take a step back before re-joining the discussion.
