When Trump appoints the CEO of Monsanto as US Secretary of Agriculture farmers will be encouraged to use more.

Brits can look forward to buying tasty US fruit and veg in the shops when they get a new trade deal.

I'm hoping the Electoral College does the right thing on December 19 (I think). Hillary did get almost 3 million more votes!

There's nothing but dreadful scientifically quantified reports over this product , but it's still on the market.
WHY ?

p.s. We are all probably getting our daily dose without knowing it

The WHY?bit is because these powerful companies and their equally powerful lobbies simple by-pas due diligence and bodies that could challenge them They use their own labs,own scientists, own researchers.They put their own people on the boards of the FDA etc.. and voila.. What s surprise they get the result they want.
Trump was right in one statement he made. It is a swamp in Washington.Full of people lining their own pockets and caring little about the health and wellbeing of the country. Despite his claims he will 'drain the swamp' As a rip off business man himself I very much doubt if anything will change. the only good thing is that Europe will resist the trade deal

Not to be controversial but, one of the unforeseen (by some) consequences of Brexit will be that when and if we have trade deals with the USA and the like then we will be importing foodstuffs which comply with their regulations (minimal) and lose the protection of the EU regs. ie glyphosate and GE will become part of our diet in the UK!
