“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.
“The trees appeared to have died suddenly. … Drill holes at the base of the trees [indicated] that a poison – most likely glyphosate – had been poured into these holes.” (http://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/blogs/woodland-trust/2015/07/trees-poisoned-in-lancashire-woodland/)
Monsanto’s glyphosate: now the poison of choice for arboricidal maniacs already intoxicated by drinking too much milk.
“Some of [McGuire’s] recent research refutes claims that glyphosate, an herbicide often used on GM crops, accumulates in breast milk; it relies on an assay developed with assistance from Monsanto. Still, McGuire says, ‘I’m a milk-lactation researcher.'” (http://www.nature.com/news/gm-crop-opponents-expand-probe-into-ties-between-scientists-and-industry-1.18146)
Monsanto-funded development of glyphosate milk products has yet to find any market as few consumers rate weedkiller yoghurt drinks as dietary supplements.
“Monsanto said … it had no information relating to a change in the marketing authorisation for [the herbicide] Roundup and that there was no new scientific data available to challenge it.
‘Under the conditions recommended on the label, the product does not present any particular risk for the user.'” (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/06/14/us-france-monsanto-idUKKBN0OU0W620150614)
Your particles are safe.
“U.S. consumer groups, scientists and food companies are testing substances ranging from breakfast cereal to breast milk for residues of the world’s most widely used herbicide on rising concerns over its possible links to disease.” (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/04/10/us-food-agriculture-glyphosate-idUKKBN0N029H20150410)
