If glyphosate was so dangerous thousands of farmers would be dead by now. In fact we might not have enough farmers left to grow our food if glyphosate was as dangerous as the ads state it is. A couple years ago at a pesticide training we were handed a paper with a few questions to fill out at the end of the meeting. One of the questions asked if we thought glyphosate is dangerous to our health, Yes, No or Probable. I checked Probable. The farmer next to me, who I happen to know glanced over at my Probable answer and acted like I was the bane of all humanity for not checking the ‘No’ box. My answer to him was “It’s a chemical”. Nuff said! I don’t think glyphosate is the big fire breathing dragon it is made out to be but since it is a chemical I sure won’t be drinking the stuff.
