Two news items - WHO & EPA

Two news items stand out today. 

!.  The World Health Organization (WHO) has labeled Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide as a ‘probable carcinogen’.  

2.  The EPA is set to put new restrictions on the world's most widely used herbicide to help contain the rapid expansion of resistant weeds.  14 weeds are now resistant to glyphosate (Monsanto’s RoundUp) affecting over 60 million acres of farmland, In the US 280 million+ pounds of glyphosate were used last year and 90% of the corn and soybeans planted are GMO.  Last year Monsanto's glyphosate sales totaled $5 billion.

COMMENT: Does it seem to any one else that our government is more concerned about resistant weeds than it is about the effects of glyphosate on human health?
