Environmental Health “Ministers in Germany are advocating an EU-wide ban on glyphosate herbicides in response to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) categorization of the chemical as “probably carcinogenic.”
More concerns over Monsanto’s deadly glyphosate herbicide
A few days ago I posted an article 4 Major GMO Threats You Should Know. It also contained a link to the republished study: long-term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified (GMO) maize.
This study concluded that the consumption of genetically modified maize over long periods can lead to unhealthy consequences. Cancers were evident in rats, fed GM corn over a two year period.
In contrast, Monsanto had conducted there own study and deemed that GM corn was safe. However, given the short term nature of their study (90 days) we must question the potential health consequences that accompany longer term exposure.
World Health Organization says Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide is “probably carcinogenic”
It appears that German ministers are so alarmed they are calling for an EU wide ban on Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide. This is in light of a new conclusion by the World Health Organization that this herbicide is “probably carcinogenic.”
