Thanks to glyphosate hitting the news so much over the past 1.5 months, GMO Truth #6 wound up taking a completely different direction here than originally planned. Substantial Equivalence was set to be the topic, but instead glyphosate takes center stage, since it’s been around since 1974 (when Monsanto first released Roundup), and was such an important component in the dawn of GMOs. If you like the podcast, please rate it in ITunes if you use that, and please rate it here by clicking on the star ratings as well. Thank you for supporting the GMO Truth!
