I posted the link several times because I know many people have short attention spans. And with the irrelevant banter that occurs, people loose sight of the original purpose of the thread.
Speaking the Truth about chemicals such as glyphosphate that are associated with GMO's is not intended to put fear into anyone. Yet the truth may scare people.
Here is a video from the channel about illnesses related to glyphosphate (RoundUp) that is associated with GMO's.

I am an amateur gardener, but even I know it is not common practice to spray weed killers when there is fruit growing. That would even limit absorption rates, if they even exist.
Personally, I never worried about weeds, as I started my seeds indoors. I did use Spinosad based insecticides, but even those are natural chemical compounds that shouldn't be directly consumed or used on fruit.

Like I said before Monsanto has put a ban blocking any information from independent resrarch regarding their patented products ending up in the food being released.
Use some common sense to answer the question of it being in the plant flesh. Human drinks water containing glyphosphate? In his/her flesh. Animal drinks or eats water/ food containging glyphosphate. In The animal flesh. Plant sprayed with glyphosate that leaches into soil and water that plant feeds off. Plant contains glyphosate.
I don't see the argument here.

as far as your eating habits, good for you. but like I said before, on my behalf I can not ignore my empathy and compassion for those who are ignorant to or misinformed of the potential risks associated with GMO's.
there is sound scientific evidence that glyphosate is linked to numerous illnesses including many forms of cancer.do your own research if you don't believe me. a good place to start is http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/02786915
since you put your beliefs heavily on science this study might interest you. research.sustainablefoodtrust.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Final... · PDF file

Outside of the GMO debate, I definitely do not like one company in control of the food supply. Monsanto has way too much control over the future of our food if you ask me.

Unless you guys want to go sustenance farm and hunt somewhere remote that has year-round waves (my ideal existence) then you may as well do your best with available diet, keep exercising, get regular sleep, and stay away from booze and smoking. Something's going to kill you. The Jack Daniels or Bud heavies you put in your veins a few times a week will kill you a lot faster than any of these GMOs. Do I agree with them doing this? Not at all, coming from a Physio/Bioenergetics background. Are we all usually doing something that's not conducive to our longevity? For the most part. Choose the lesser evil.

glyphosate (roundup) is far far worse than Budweiser. I don't think exercise and regular sleep will do anything as far as putting poison like glyphosate in your body.
