    Last month the Food & Drug Administration published its latest annual analysis of the levels of pesticide residues that contaminate the fruits and veggies and other foods we Americans routinely put on our dinner plates. The fresh data adds to growing consumer concern and scientific debate over how pesticide residues in food may contribute – or not – to illness, disease and reproductive problems.

    I read the actual FDA analysis with great interest. Some of their stats seem a little off point. For example, although U.S. corn and soybean crops are almost all GMO and thus engineered for the use of glyphosate, only 60% of corn and soybean samples contained glyphosate residue. Seems way too low.
