    • For starters, I take issue with the title of the article. What toxin are they talking about? Next, check out the "Story at-a-glance" summary on the right hand side of the screen. For example, "Roundup Ready soy is having devastating effects in many countries; one of the hardest hit is Argentina . . ." Really? What are the devastating effects? Why are Argentinian farmers continuing to cultivate 98% Roundup Ready soybeans when the country is so devastated by the product? What proof do you have that the devastating effects are true and attributable to RR Soy?

      Another bullet that I take issue with: "In Argentina, widespread reports exist of immediate illness from massive glyphosate spraying operations, but physicians and regulatory authorities continue turning a deaf ear." Really? Widespread reports of immediate illness? Why would 98% of Argentinian farmers sow Roundup Ready soybeans if this were the case? Doesn't make sense does it?

      The deeper you get into this website, the more obvious it is that organic forces are at work to demonize GMO in order to expand the organic business. Check it out. Do you care to donate to the Organic Consumers Fund?
