All quotes about Glyphosate
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.
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.
Have a look yourself: this is my hayfield, some 16 to 17 hectares. It is surrounded by cornfields treated with herbicides.
Well, glyphosate – such as Roundup and other brands – is sold almost everywhere. You can buy it without difficulty.
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….
Well, looks impressive… A field not sprayed with glyphosate and it's a sheer riot of colours.
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.

With this decision all they do is cast doubt on that system, and create fear and confusion amongst Europe's consumers.
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.
This is no surprise, since the commission has continued to ignore the concerns of independent scientists, [EU lawmakers] and European citizens.
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.
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.
