Description

The herbicide "glyphosate" (the active ingredient in products such as "Roundup®" " and other weed control formulations) has been much in the news in today's world of social media and 24-hour news cycles. Are you hearing conflicting and confusing information about exposure, toxicity and its health effects as you try to stay abreast of the recent science?
