The total sale of products with ‘Non-GMO’ labeling is now in the billions, and the growth of this market is certainly to be applauded. However, the Non-GMO label inadvertently shields health-conscious consumers from one of the scarier realities of the modern food system—that glyphosate, which is the main ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, is also being applied to non genetically modified crops.
Banning Roundup in Agriculture is an Imperative.
In the US a judge has ruled that kids can sue the US government for inaction on Climate Change. Last July, a court in The Hague has ordered the Dutch government to cut its emissions by at least 25% within five years, in a landmark ruling expected to cause ripples around the world. As incontrovertible proofs that Roundup is linked to autism, cancers, and other disorders accumulate, we can expect to see large groups of the population suing government for inaction against toxic agriculture.
