Before you get too far into this, I'd like to see clarification of a
crucial point. The bit that I recall reading left the impression that the
Starlink 'contamination' was identified by detecting the GENE that makes
the pesticide, and not the pesticide itself.

Are there in fact any pesticide residues? Pesticide breakdown products?
Rate of pesticide breakdown? It goes without saying that it would be
useful to get the facts before talking about pesticide residue accumulation
up the food chain.
