We noted in the discussion that just because something isn’t GMO, it doesn’t mean there are no herbicides used in the production of the plant. Many people are unaware that herbicide tolerance (HT) existed before GMOs, does not require GMOness, and is used to cultivate many crops including non-GMO canola, non-GMO sunflower oil, and more. But if you are banning GMO HT soybeans from the menu, are you actually eliminating the use of herbicides? Perhaps not.
