Someone else asked this question: “If we have developed herbicide resistant corn and soybeans, what do you think you’re eating with your corn and soybeans?” .
Ok, maybe the smart people who developed herbicides made sure that we did not end up eating the stuff (No corporation has ever put their bottom line ahead of the safety of their costumers, right?) but there is at least one reason to stop using herbicides: Nature will eventually adapt to render them useless.

Over and out.
