Quotes

[Sørensen:] "We use an amount that equates to growing soya on an area the size of Zealand for Danish livestock, the cows, the pigs and the hens."
...that are attempting to put together a patchwork quilt of food labeling requirements with respect to genetic modification of foods," said Pompeo. "That makes it enormously difficult to operate a food system. Some of the campaigns in some of these states aren't really to inform consumers but rather aimed at scaring them. What this bill attempts to do is set a standard."
"The level of glyphosate in American mothers' breast milk was up to 166ug/l or 0.166 ppm. That is high. My sows, which had 5 times the deformities, 5 times the abortions, and fewer pigs born in litters, had 0.028 ppm-0.048 ppm in their urine, compared to sows that only had 0.0028 ppm in their urine. That [0.048 ppm] is less than 1/3 of the amount in the breast milk."
