Will DB, the comments on that link...now that's reading.
Why. oh, why do you only consider acute toxicity ( LD 50) rather than chronic toxicity?
The number of studies showing glyphosate toxicity is large and growing. There are a slew of studies examining effects of glyphosate as an endocrine disruptor http://www.examiner.com/article/earth-to-seattle-times-glyphosate-is-an-endocrine-disruptor with the most recent showing it is active at parts / trillion (in environmentally relevant concentrations) at stimulating proliferation of hormone sensitive breast cancer…which vinegar, soap and salt certainly do not. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23756170 Glyphosate also uncouples oxidative phosphorylation (in our energy factories- mitochondria) and its toxicity is potentiated by adjuvants- not analyzed in toxicity studies. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16263381
The metabolic pathways affected by glyphosate are also found in the beneficial bacteria in your gut. What do you think the knock on effects of that are? It also affects the bacteria in the soil – again , knock on effects?
