Breaking News 

This web site has been documenting the poisonous effects of glyphosate on humans and animals from the beginning, and now the World Health Organization has confirmed:

(Yes, this is about those "Roundup Ready" crops, like corn, rice, and peanuts, that should be safe for gluten-intolerant people like me to eat. These days they often make me sick because, in order for these foods to grow in fields saturated with glyphosate, the plants have been genetically modified--made more similar to wheat--by having genes from a species of bacteria that causes drastic food poisoning spliced into them. These days I'm spending less time feeling sick because I'm avoiding far more kinds of food than I ought to be. But I'm neither healthy nor happy.)
