For decades now, the public has been exposed, unknowingly and against their will, to glyphosate, despite mounting evidence that this key active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide is harmful to human health and the environment,” said Ronnie Cummins, OCA’s international director.

Why did WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) take so long to issue a statement in which glyphosate (the main component of Roundup) was classified as “probably carcinogenic” to humans and as “sufficiently demonstrated” for genotoxicity [the ability of a chemical property/agent to cause damage to genetic information within a cell that can cause mutations which can lead to cancer] in animals? Aren’t humans also classified as the animal kingdom? We certainly aren’t plants! Although some people actually are ‘plants’ for certain vested interests.

After the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared glyphosate a probable carcinogen, the campaign has intensified in Latin America to ban the herbicide, which is employed on a massive scale on transgenic crops.

In a Mar. 20 publication, the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) reported that the world’s most widely used herbicide is probably carcinogenic to humans, a conclusion that was based on numerous studies.

Social organisations and scientific researchers in Latin America argue that thanks to the report by the WHO’s cancer research arm, governments no longer have an excuse not to intervene, after years of research on the damage caused by glyphosate to health and the environment at a regional and global level.

“We believe the precautionary principle should be applied, and that we should stop accumulating studies and take decisions that could come too late,” said Javier Souza, coordinator of the Latin American Pesticide Action Network (RAP-AL).

EU godkender brugen af Roundup i Europa, vel vidende at det er kræftfremkaldende.
Men hensynet til firmaer som Monsato vejer åbenbart mere, eller betaler måske flere penge under bordet...
