'It’s a war of the experts, and Monsanto – the world’s most evil corporation – has billions of dollars riding on the outcome. Highly respected scientists have released reports insisting that glyphosate – the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller – is a probable carcinogen (cancer-causer), while other, equally respected scientists are insisting that it’s as safe as houses. Monsanto obviously has a huge vested interest in which of these scientific groups’ findings are accepted by governments as gospel. And they’re willing to fight dirty – as always – to get the results they want.
EU member states are engaged in a tug-of-war trying to determine whether the license for glyphosate should be renewed. While each member state gets to decide whether or not to use a certain pesticide in their country, as well as in what quantities and for which applications, the active ingredients in all such pesticides first have to be approved at the EU level. In other words, if the EU as a body approves of the use of a certain chemical, then each member state can go on to decide whether or not to allow the use of that chemical in their country. On the other hand, if the EU does not approve a certain chemical, then no EU member state may use that chemical at all.'
