More countries across the European Union have now joined the Great Glyphosate Rebellion that was started late last week by France, Sweden and the Netherlands.
French Minister of Ecology has announced that France will vote against the EU re-licensing of glyphosate, the world’s most used herbicide.
Farmers also use glyphosate on crops such as wheat, oats, edible beans, and other crops right before harvest, raising concerns that the herbicide could get into food products.
This report from the Environmental Working Group shows the staggering sums on money spent to oppose GMO labeling and deny the public the right to know what is in our foods.
Sen. Pat Roberts’ DARK Act that would make it GMO labeling by states illegal. A distinctly Anti-American act.
The Senate released the newest version of the DARK Act, the anti-GMO labeling bill backed by Monsanto, the Grocery Manufacturers Association, and their Big Food allies.
Glyphosate use has risen almost 15-fold since so-called “Roundup Ready,” genetically engineered glyphosate-tolerant crops were introduced in 1996.
Brazil first made head lines last fall when the Zika virus began to spread there. The country made headlines again when genetically modified mosquitos were released to try to control it.
Monsanto’s signature herbicide glyphosate, first marketed as “Roundup,” is now the most widely and heavily applied weed-killer in history.
Despite myths to the contrary, no thorough allergenicity assessment is conducted on GMO foods.
