Once they started involving themselves in politics I promptly quit buying B&J. Not a fan of Blue Balls ice cream. Mayfield however, is delicious.

I'd worry more about all the "natural" things out there can make you sick or kill you - unpeeled parsnips, raw rhubard, ocean fish, green tinted potaoes, potato fruits, assorted mushrooms, undercooked kidney beans, apple seeds. . .
Heck, even chugging too much water can kill you.
Think I'll go have a beer with my breakfast!

Cheers,
Carolyn

This is sounding much like the DDT debate. Of course it is harmful like all pesticides including neonicotenooids and of course companies like Monsanto knew and sponsored selective research to show it has very minimal impacts. The original surfactant debate in the 80s and pinning aquatic life especially frog wipeout on glyphosate was pretty conclusive in the end.
The question is the intensity of the endocrine disruption and at what concentrations compared to normal use. There are much worse pesticides out there and just look at its registration paperwork to start with and look at independent studies. It definitely has some adverse impact on people but it is probably very small with normal use.
I think outside the US Trumpisms like fake news don't fly and neither does the rejection of science because you don't like it. Too often sober assessment is perverted by weird logic just look at the gun debate.

With you all the way, Mike.  Things have been so bizarre here I just want to move to Pandora!

You only need to research glycophospate toxicity to determine itís safety. Look for peer reviewed independent research.
Donít rush, take time and enjoy life and food.

Mike, sorry to take you there but what was the DDT debate?

It makes me glad to know that for the past 10 years I have always made my own ! Sounds like a massive lawsuit incoming, I donít understand why people buy products like these from the conglomerates. It would save you 80% of the cost to make your own and would be far nicer!

This is another good example of a spammer/bot.
