POLL: Should glyphosate be banned?
The Roundup scandal intensified further over the weekend as over 30 cities around the world, including Perth, held protests against the activities of Bayer-Monsanto and others agrochemical giants, in the wake of Monsanto’s third lawsuit loss in the US.
Last week a US jury the agribusiness giant to pay a combined US$2.05 billion (A$2.94 billion) to a couple who claimed the company’s popular weed killer Roundup Ready caused their cancers.
Monsanto continues to deny that its product causes cancer and has challenged findings by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, an arm of the World Health Organization (WHO), which classified glyphosate as a “probable carcinogen” in 2015.
Today, we’re asking whether you think glyphosate should be banned or if we need more information before taking such a measure. Cast your vote below and leave your thoughts in the comments.
