Last quote about Glyphosate

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

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

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

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
