You'd have to check with a embryologist, maybe someone in internal medicine familiar with bioacculmulation research to know for sure.

If your homework, it's been well established that chemically, the human body is too stupid to identify the difference between sprayed organic BT and the organic BT compound from GMO-corn products. When it comes to digestion, there's nothing scientific that has even remotely suggested BT-corn is unsafe. Now there are other valid concerns with BT-corn, but that's a completely separate debate.

I really hope Monsanto is right and there are no health concerns with Roundup residues in the food system for the the sake of all of us. Count me as skeptical.

I have given up bread for white Corn Tortillas and now eating organic oatmeal among other things to cut back on my exposure to Roundup.

Monsanto has been poisoning the planet and lying about it for close to 100 years I think.I just don't trust them with good reason.

Looks like the beginning of the end for Roundup anyway.
