Another win for Monsanto: US raises allowable levels of company’s pesticide in crops

http://rt.com/usa/monsanto-glyphosate-roundup-epa-483/

Well the EPA thinks more is better for human consumption. I love having weed killer in the morning in my toast and just about 85% of all US food crops.

Quote :
Through the EPA’s new standards, the amount of allowable glyphosate in oilseed crops such as flax, soybeans and canola will be increased from 20 parts per million (ppm) to 40 ppm, which GM Watch acknowledged is over 100,000 times the amount needed to induce breast cancer cells. Additionally, the EPA is increasing limits on allowable glyphosate in food crops from 200 ppm to 6,000 ppm.

Add to that tucked away Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 US H.R. 933 passed in March The Farmer Assurance Provision Section 735 (formerly Section 733) fundamentally undermines the concept of judicial review and strips the Judicial branch to halt the sale and planting of genetically engineered crops during any legal action and also limits liability, providing protection to Monsanto revenue impact and the company from criminal and civil prosecution.

Government of the corporations, by the corporations, for the corporations. Yippeee Mad 

Wonder what happens to their scheme when we all die off from the crap they've obliterated or foot supply with? Not too many customers left, but at least they'll have all the money. Rolling Eyes
