Does that mean GMO tomatoes aren't available in the United States?
They had some years ago called Flavr Savr

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

I already said they have basically disappeared, worldwide.  The United States IS STILL in the "world".

So the answer to your question is yes, to the best of my knowledge.


They had some years ago called Flavr Savr

That is correct.  It is the only variety I'm aware of that went into commercial production.

California EPA to label Monsanto’s Roundup as cancer agent

California may become the first state to classify the toxic chemical glyphosate in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide as a cancer agent. The move comes after a report by the World Health Organization and the International Agency for Research on Cancer determined glyphosate to be a carcinogen

So what?

If you feed it to rats non-stop, sure they might get cancer.

Same thing with bacon. And coffee. And cigarettes.

LOL...you are closer to being a female than I am.

After all, that useless toodlebug probably now resembles a flap covering your well used orifice.

Okay that was mean so to help you "celebrate"...just think of LW's wife the next time you need to service your significant other...or if my hunch is right...you could just envision the cowboy.  ;)

Well, water and salt are toxic as well, in sufficient quantities.

Better stop eating those as well.   8*

I doubt they're equivalent.

Yes it's important to stay well hydrated but one can over do it.

I try to stay away from salt...so much so that now everything tastes too salty to me now.

Both are examples are done with the knowledge of those substances and the option to make the right choices.

But it seems not everybody is aware of the dangers of the seemingly innocuous.

When it comes to things that are carcinogenic...sometimes the government has to step in.

I've not heard of water and/or salt being carcinogenic.

Some interesting reading about glyphosate.
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2015/07/05/glyphosate-cancer.aspx


Ah, yes.  An opinion piece written by an unknown "research scientist".

Complete with his very own Gofundme page at the end, giving everyone a chance to give him money to "fund his important research on glyphosate".

What a joke.  And you actually believe this kind of crap?

Here.  I read YOUR story.  Please read mine.  Big difference is this article is written by epidemiologists and geneticists that study glyphosate's actual impact on human health, WITHOUT the input from Monsanto.  These people actually have PhD's, and they aren't asking for money to "fund their research"!!!

Is glyphosate toxic to humans?

Of course glyphosate is toxic! It is a herbicide after all – the whole point of glyphosate (G for short in this post) is to kill unwanted plants. Like all chemicals, including water and salt, G is going to be toxic to animals (including humans) at some dose. Compared to other herbicides, though, G is a pretty safe option for killing weeds. Don’t take my word for it, check out the Glyphosate Technical Fact Sheet from the National Pesticide Information Center at Oregon State. G’s relative safety is one reason why it’s become so popular.
