Monsanto’s Roundup May End Bananas—And They’re Merely the Canary in the Mine
Bananas are dying. They’re killed by a fungus, one known to be caused by glyphosate, which is used on bananas. But the loss of bananas may be only the tip of the disaster.
The bananas we eat today are not the same ones that were eaten in the first half of the 20th century. Those were tastier and creamier. They were lost to monoculture. A fungal infection, Fusarium, couldn’t be overcome because nearly all bananas were clones, and therefore susceptible to the same disease.
