(Nov 21 2014) Think Snopes is not agenda driven? Think again!
A post by a farmer to the forum dispels all doubt that Snopes supported Monsanto by posting a bold faced lie "citing farmers" regarding the use of Roundup immediately before wheat harvests.
In a response to an article posted by web site The Healthy Home EconomistThe Healthy Home Economist, which stated the real reason for gluten intolerance was in fact poisoning from having roundup sprayed on wheat crops 3 to 5 days before harvest (to kill the wheat plants and dry them out so they go through the combines better) Snopes stated in no uncertain terms that they interviewed many farmers and none of them ever heard of this practice.
Snopes then went on to explain in detail why it would not be economical to do so, and that the wheat crops just get ready by themselves, and that there was no need for it, so it never ever ever happens (but there was a Pre harvest staging guide by Monsanto outlining this procedure which is called dessication) and based upon the "fact this document exists", they tenuously grayed the topic and then implied that anyone who thinks they are getting poisoned by round up must be half nuts.
