Glyphosate – not only a problem for Bayer
The non-selective herbicide glyphosate that has been marketed under the name Round up for nearly 30 years, kills every plant, unless its seeds have been genetically modified so that they are resistant to just this specific herbicide. The producer of both products is the US-company Monsanto, which was bought by Bayer for 63 billion dollars in 2018. Glyphosate has also been patented as an antibiotic since 2010, which, like every antibiotic, kills bacteria. However, fertile soil needs bacteria and humans are also completely dependent on bacteria.
