Roundup was "safe" just a few years ago. This represents the problem. Many of these companies are entirely responsible for their own product testing. They submit their own faulty data to their former executives currently heading the FDA and they get approval. All of it is safe until proven otherwise.

800+ studies spanning several decades have found glyphosate to be safe. Glyphosate is less toxic than many certified organic pesticides (as well as coffee and salt). Not to mention that glyphosate is used on non-GMO crops as well. Glyphosate is in the same IARC class as boiled vegetables, salty Asian foods, and working in barber shops.

Otherwise I would be totally fine with them.

I still don't think I'd trust Monstanto to modify them though. I'd trust organic food from Hillary Clinton more than I'd trust Monsanto GMOs even without Roundup.

GMO-free crops use Roundup as well. Though GMOs significantly reduce the use of pesticides compared to GM-free agriculture.
