Therefore, the glyphosate lineage sperm were found to have altered DNA methylation in direct exposure F1 and F2 generations, as well as the transgenerational F3 generation
Observations indicate glyphosate can promote germline epigenetic alterations in DNA methylation.

if a person were to buy/inherit/acquire/whatever a parcel of land that had been farmed using toxic Gick, what would a person have to do to rehab the land? What crops planted, what animals graze, etc. I don’t think the answer is that the land is toxic for all time. I think that there must be steps that could “cleanse” the land, but I am not certain what these steps would be.
