A BIGGER THREAT TO HUMAN HEALTH?
From Devon Peña's environmental justice blog
For several decades now, scientists have been warning of the dangers of genetically-engineered crops. Many of these concerns have focused on environmental risks. One pattern of such risks involves development of so-called Super Weeds. A well-known example is mutating wild Pigweed that has developed resistance to Monsanto's flagship glyphosate herbicide, Roundup.
These mutated weeds pose a bigger threat to organic farmers who rely on natural and cultural controls that can be undermined by these anthropogenic (human-induced) changes in weed morphology, reproduction, and biogeographic distributions.
