Here is a very interesting paper to read, which is discussing increase in use of Glyphosates in the Europe Union. Thank you to Andre Piver for circulating through BC Food Security Networks listserv.
I certainly don’t claim to be an expert on this subject, so I will leave it to the Scientists.
The Executive Summary starts off:
The use of glyphosate-based herbicides, especially Monsanto’s Roundup formulation, has increased dramatically since the introduction of genetically modified (GM) glyphosate-tolerant crops, resulting in the contamination of our food, environment and water supplies.
Glyphosate-based herbicides are now the most commonly used herbicides in the world. It is still promoted as ‘safe’, despite damning evidence of serious harm to health and the environment.
