I don't know about the scientific debates as to what gly. does to plants, but the Roundup Ready Corn and Soy seems to be healthy prolific plants, i.e. no obvious viral diseases on the plants themselves...

Another point is that by the time the ears start to form on the stalk there is no more reason to spray for weeds, so I don't believe the food is being contaminated... Low in nutrition and indigestable frankenstien protiens, Yes but gly. in your soup, No...

Potatoes on the other hand grow in a chemical soup and are even killed prematurally with a chemical which is very likely sucked right into the tubers, just before harvest... That is how plants die right? taking everything from the leaf and stem and store it in the roots as a survival mechanism...
