It is raining Roundup in Mississippi—–


It’s raining Roundup!  You can read the whole article in the forwarded message below.  Sad state of affairs, isn’t it?
Glyphosate, the chemical ingredient of Roundup herbicide, and its breakdown product aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) are frequently found in rainfall and rivers in the Mississippi Basin, where most GM crops tolerant to glyphosate are grown, according to findings by the US Geological Survey (USGS). The USGS reports that glyphosate use rose by more than eightfold, to 88,000 tons, in the 15 years to 2007, further eroding the myth that GM crops reduce chemical use.
The USGS found glyphosate in more than 60% of air and rain samples taken in Mississippi, Iowa and Indiana, with AMPA found in more than 50% of samples. Researchers from the USGS estimate that about 1% of glyphosate sprayed ended up in surface waters in the four areas where monitoring was conducted in streams and rivers. The highest median level of glyphosate detected was 5.7ug/litre. In Europe, this level would not be allowed to enter the public water supply.
