Europe is about to vote in favour to continue the use of glyphosate-based products for another 10 years.
How could this be possible?
- The international agency for research on cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic” for humans. Such pesticides must be banned in Europe by law. But European authorities based on the industry’s undisclosed animal studies and by overlooking a range of academic scientific studies reporting the harmful effects of glyphosate, concluded that glyphosate poses no harm to humans, or to any other animal and the environment. The European parliament called for a ban at least in public areas and non-professional uses. But the Regulators have ignored this decision.
