Scott Partridge - Monsanto

This is not the final step in the process, and it has no bearing on the merits of the case. We will continue to aggressively challenge this improper decision.feedback

Franziska Achterberg - Greenpeace

Any meddling by Monsanto in regulatory safety assessments would be wholly unacceptable. We urgently need a thorough investigation into the Efsa assessment before glyphosate can be considered for re-approval in Europe.feedback

Radley Balko

Here’s the latest roundup of the Trump administration’s record on issues related to civil liberties and the criminal justice system. As usual, if you can think of anything I’ve missed, please feel free to leave links in the comments section.feedback

Bart Staes - European Parliament

It makes no sense to accept the wide range of risks associated with glyphosate.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

Did you hear what the leader of the extreme right said a few weeks ago about the Vel d'Hiv roundup? The roots are well and truly alive and established. I won't forget anything and I'll fight until the very last second, not only against her programme, but against her idea of democracy and what constitutes the French Republic. My views are not the same.feedback

Han Ga-ram

The problem is that the army is abusing the law to launch a systematic ferreting out of gay soldiers. This is not that different from the Nazis' roundup of homosexuals and the anti-gay crackdown in Chechnya.feedback

Fiorella Belpoggi

Exposed animals had no evident differences from non-exposed animals. But this tells us very little at the moment, because the examinations of key parameters that could be affected by exposure are still being done (and) we are waiting for those results. We are focused on reproductive and developmental issues, in other words, whether glyphosate ... affects the development of embryos, fetuses and pups. This was to ensure we would have the best experts analyze each end point.feedback

Kathleen Hallal

A lot of parents have been awakened to the reality of Roundup being everywhere.feedback

Franziska Achterberg - Greenpeace

ECHA has gone to great lengths to sweep all evidence that glyphosate can cause cancer under the carpet. The data vastly exceeds what's legally necessary for the EU to ban glyphosate, but ECHA has looked the other way. For the EU to make decisions based on science, it can't distort the facts. If the EU doesn't get this right, people and the environment will continue to be the lab rats of the chemical industry.feedback

Tim Bowmer

Glyphosate should not be classified as a carcinogen, that is, as a substance causing cancer. This conclusion was based both on the human evidence and the weight of the evidence of all of the animal studies reviewed.feedback

Graeme Taylor

Science prevailed. Glyphosate is not carcinogenic. We expect the European commission to move swiftly with the registration process for the substance in the EU and grant a 15-year approval.feedback

Marion Copley

I have cancer and I don't want these serious issues in HED [health effects division] to go unaddressed before I go to my grave. I have done my duty.feedback

Radley Balko

Your latest roundup of stories about the Trump administration’s approach to civil liberties and criminal justice.feedback

Kurt Straif - World Health Organization

Our evaluation was a review of all the published scientific literature on glyphosate and this was done by the world's best experts on the topic that in addition don't have any conflicts of interest that could bias their assessment, and they concluded that, yes, glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans based on three strings of evidence, that is clear evidence of cancer in experimental animals, limited evidence for cancer for humans from real-world exposures, of exposed farmers, and also strong evidence that it can damage the genes from any kind of other toxicological studies.feedback

Kurt Straif - World Health Organization

It is an important topic that needs important scrutiny, yes.feedback

Kurt Straif - World Health Organization

I think it's important to understand the literature that our assessment that glyphosate can cause cancer in humans still stands, and then you have to look at the other assessments for the specific scenarios, and that is not my authority to comment on these evaluations.feedback

Kurt Straif - World Health Organization

Our classification of the cancer hazards of glyphosate still stand. We are the authority to classify cancer substances worldwide for the WHO, and it was then this other panel that looked at a very narrow angle of exposure from daily food, and then came up with the conclusion on how much of that may be safe or not.feedback

Kurt Straif - World Health Organization

This is really an independent review of all the published literature that then leads to a classification about what we know about the substance and particularly its cancer-causing effects, but then it's up to other agencies, the WHO internationally or other national agencies to turn that into a risk assessment and decide on the different exposures in our use, for farmers, from our diet, in cosmetics, wherever the substance can end up, to come up with conclusions.feedback

Michael Rubin

It happened shortly before the rapeseed colza harvest. In our region the colza is sprayed to death. My animals were harmed because at the very moment the colza was treated with glyphosate, they were exposed to the toxic mist. They got cramps, they got diarrhoea, they died within days.feedback

Ariane Failer

There is just ten meters between the property line and the enclosure for my dogs. It is unavoidable that the wind carries glyphosate to us… We cannot do anything. She had been operated on the lower milk line to remove tumours, but they came back. Two of them you can see: cancer is growing there… and there. Four tumours on the same milk line.feedback

Michael Rubin

Have a look yourself: this is my hayfield, some 16 to 17 hectares. It is surrounded by cornfields treated with herbicides.feedback

Hans Von

Well, glyphosate – such as Roundup and other brands – is sold almost everywhere. You can buy it without difficulty.feedback

Hans Von

Once you start digging into this story, you'll get a kind of feeling that all this is not just about science – but about politics. So, let's have a talk with the politicians….feedback

Hans Von

Well, looks impressive… A field not sprayed with glyphosate and it's a sheer riot of colours.feedback

Pierre Courduroux - Monsanto Company

We encountered several headwinds in the quarter. These included the expected absence of last year's Scotts licensing agreements and the anticipated glyphosate pricing declines.feedback

Bart Staes - European Parliament

We are glad EU governments have represented their citizens. Forcing through the authorization would raise major democratic concerns about the EU's decision-making process.feedback

Graeme Taylor

With this decision all they do is cast doubt on that system, and create fear and confusion amongst Europe's consumers.feedback

Franziska Achterberg - Greenpeace

Extending the glyphosate licence would be like smelling gas and refusing to evacuate to check for a leak. As long as there is no meaningful EU-wide restriction on glyphosate use, we will continue to live in a world that is awash in a weedkiller which is a likely cause of cancer.feedback

Franziska Achterberg - Greenpeace

This is no surprise, since the commission has continued to ignore the concerns of independent scientists, [EU lawmakers] and European citizens.feedback

Barbara Hendricks

It's proven that glyphosate has negative effects on the environment. That needs to be fully taken into account for the approval. Given that there is still uncertainty about the health risks associated with glyphosate, the SPD-led ministries will not agree to the approval of glyphosate.feedback

Bart Staes - European Parliament

It is scandalous that the Commission is ramming through an EU approval for glyphosate to be used with no restrictions, despite the very serious concerns about the impact of this toxic substance on public health and the environment. Clearly banning glyphosate would be the responsible course of action.feedback
