I think we are all human guinea pigs. Mankind learns from his mistakes when the full consequences come,to the fore. However,we need to be practical, sensible and not panic because some (often ill informed) boffins announce something.
dont eat food where glyphosate has been used this year. Dont eat food where slug pellets are........?
Boffins are offen the most nerdy and single minded people having an academic education but lacking any real wisdom. I remember a group of villagers creating crop circles and the village invaded by scientific experts. They declared they were of supernatural origin. The villagers then informed the press that they made the circles themselves. The "experts" were embarrassed and angry and complained their time had been wasted.
Time amd time again the experts declare things we all know are just plain daft.
Glyphosate is a chemical used to initially eradicate persistent weeds, often used once or twice thereafter. I hardly use it here.......occasionally on a dandelion or wild grass on a path. .....because it is not necessary for me to. Nobody knows the effect long term of glyphosate, micro waves, mobile phone use, wireless Internet use , tv watching, tea drinking, or even of lomg term daly use of mouthwashes.
We live for now....generations ahead will know what we did wrong. Generations ahead of them will know what they did wrong.
