Drinking roundup makes guys live longer!

Myles Power likes to share his love of science by blogging and making videos about ‘fun with Science!’ Ha also debunks bad scientific claims, and has recently turned his attention to genetically engineered crops. Take a look at this video, where he addresses the frequently promoted and criticized 2012 Seralini study. In it, he points out that the only actual correlation in Seralini’s rat mortality data suggests that males who drink roundup live longer lives, among other odd things about the paper.

Want to see more? He has also blogged about GMO rice, claims of Bt crops and Leukemia, proposition 37, cookie-cutter anti-GMO “research,” and public opinions about GMOs. He also addresses his critics, and discussed the Green PolkaDot Box’s odd claims about GMOs. Worth checking out!

Naturally, drinking roundup will probably not make men live longer, and that’s the point.

Karl earned his Ph.D. in Plant Breeding and Plant Genetics at UW-Madison, with a minor in Life Science Communication. His dissertation was on both the genetics of sweet corn and plant genetics outreach. He currently works as a public research geneticist in Madison, WI. His favorite produce might just be squash.

    Where has Myles been? I can’t believe I didn’t know about his site and videos before this. Well done.

    I am quite a weedy guy, so roundup has worked well on me…however I do find that any more than 2 litres a day does lead to a certain amount of reflux.
