Dr. Bessent, why don’t we start with, what is Glyphosate?
Can you give us a little history on this toxin, when it came to be.
I heard you mention that most crops get sprayed more than once and glyphosate is actually sprayed again to help the entire crop mature at the same time?
And it concentrates in plants with seeds?
In 2010, the World Health Organization categorized glyphosate as a “probable carcinogen”. Why does the US continue to spray glyphosate on crops?
What foods are most likely to be contaminated?
Aren’t these the same ingredients found in most commercial pet foods?
Can you briefly explain GMO foods and what are the most prominent GMO foods?
And it’s hard to wash off of the foods right?
You suggest a link with some of the most common diseases and glyphosate.
Why are our dogs at such risk?
How do we Minimize The Effects On our dogs?
And you believe that glyphosate and GMOs are directly linked to the DCM cases we’re seeing? Can you share that with us?
I understand that there is a Glyphosate Pet Test?
