“Herbicide-resistant GE cotton is typically sprayed with copious amounts of Roundup, the active ingredient in which is glyphosate, a likely human carcinogen.
The 2002 introduction of Bt cotton, which is genetically engineered to produce its own internal pesticide, was supposed to lead to a reduction in the use of insecticides. In reality, Bt cotton actually requires more pesticide sprayings than indigenous cotton, as it has created new chemical-resistant pests.
To control these resistant pests, farmers now use 13 times more pesticides than they were using prior to the introduction of Bt cotton.6″ – Dr Joseph Mercola

And ladies, we don’t even want to discuss the TAMPON implications, right? And the cancer issues!
