vindicating the use of Roundup …

Monsanto manufactured Roundup is, at last, found to be safe from causing cancer, the latest science report published, sort of, by the EU.

The EU (Sort Of) Vindicates Monsanto, Says Roundup Ingredient Doesn’t Cause Cancer

A European scientific council has determined glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto Co.’s weed killer Roundup, should not be classified as a cancer-causing substance.The European Chemical Agency (ECHA), which regulates chemicals on the market in Europe, considered numerous scientific studies in a global battle between agri-chemical companies, organic activists and policymakers.

“This conclusion was based both on the human evidence and the weight of the evidence of all the animal studies reviewed,” Tim Bowmer, chairman of ECHA’s Committee for Risk Assessment, told reporters after the decision Wednesday, according to Reuters.

The ECHA found that “the available scientific evidence did not meet the criteria to classify glyphosate as a carcinogen,” the group said in a press release. The group still classifies glyphosate as “a substance causing serious eye damage and being toxic to aquatic life with long-lasting effects,” according to the statement.

After having used Roundup and watched it’s use over 40 years, this is not a surprise. What is a surprise is that the Green Blob’s nonsense over the past decade has finally been trashed by science.

The use of Roundup and GMO has saved the world from toxic chemical weed killers used on millions of hectares, that were prominent in the 60s and 70s. These chemicals were the cause of death of many farmers before their time.

Now, off to kill some weeds.
