      KTOTELS--I can see the expert answer. But you seem to be under the impression that organic produce isn't sprayed with anything, including surfactants. That's not correct. Here's an article about organic pesticides: http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2011/06/18/137249264/organic-pesticides-not-an-oxymoron

      And you may want to know that organic pesticides can have higher environmental impact quotients than some synthetic ones. http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0011250

    Yeah it was rhetorical question. But to your point, I wouldn't eat food that had household chemicals sprayed on them. However this panel of experts keeps telling us that Corn, Soy, Canola GMO's... are safe to eat even though they have been sprayed with Roundup and not tested before market. So, I'm not buying it. Literally...
    P.S I also hear the they spray Roundup on non-GMO crops in some instances as a ripening agent. So these criminal and unsafe practices change, I eat organic.

    No, it is not safe to directly consume Roundup. But that is true of the soap you use to wash your dishes, the shampoo that goes in your hair, detergent that washes your clothes, and pretty much all other household chemicals you use. And as with all of those chemicals Roundup is proven safe when used in the proper manner, which is why you should follow the instructions.
