Glyphosatiety

“The [European Parliament] resolution additionally demands strict limits on ‘pre-harvest’ applications [of glyphosate] on crops, with a strong recital calling such uses ‘unacceptable’. This refers to the practice of spraying crops up to two weeks before harvest to ‘dessicate’ the plants and make havesting easier.
Pre-harvest application of glyphosate is a clear route for human exposure to glyphosate via the harvested crop.” (http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_round_up/2987554/european_parliament_votes_to_ban_most_uses_of_glyphosate.html)

Surely this is alimentary reasoning.
