Re: “Oakland Organic Gardener Wins Battle Against Roundup

Somehow I don't think Ernest Montague has read the documents that Monsanto grudgingly submitted to EPA last spring. Their case rests on the claim that no study showed *one single* harmful effect in a majority of test subjects. Instead, all studies agree that, though harmful effects vary widely, glyphosate has harmful effects on most test subjects--insects, birds, humans or other animals. Its effects on humans are somewhat correlated with individuals' genes; for celiacs it causes celiac reactions, for other people it may cause skin rashes, asthma, or loss of consciousness. It is *known* to damage human kidneys so, if not a sole cause of cancer, it's certainly a contributing factor to almost any disease. It is pure poison and should be banned.

I knew a farmer who denied glyphosate was harmful for years though I could see him react to it. He died in the middle of his usual reaction (narcolepsy) to heavy spraying along roads last summer.

And did the school keep records of how many children seemed ill or sick right after spraying? I've stood in an open-air market and seen a whiff of vapor on the wind make people visibly unwell. Most blamed age, "something going around," or "allergies." But all reacted at one time, though differently; they weren't allergic to the same flowers on other days, and nothing "went around" among people who weren't exposed to glyphosate vapors.
