Monsanto Muddies the Water as E.U Madness Allows Roundup on our Shelves!

It saddens me to read, that despite all the odds and 1.3 million signatures against Monsanto’s continued use of roundup as a weedkiller. However the EU in it’s wisdom decided to issue a further five year lease to continue manufacturing non-selective herbicide associated with cancer and other neurological diseases.

But let’s not panic there’s a royal engagement after all, its only a decision that’s likely to have long term ecological effects on our planet, our families and their Children!

So I for one will never use Roundup again, any doubt of its safety is life threatening and the E.U has yet again ignored the people it represents.

The madness of Monsanto’s 15 year lease request a decline to a reduced 10 application beginning refused in favour of a 5 year lease even after the World’s Health Organisation cancer agency has stated “probably carcinogenic to humans” in 2015. We have been silenced by officals in place to ensure our safety, instead of a reprieve from dangerous enzyme blocking non-selective chemical use on our land and crops is free to poison the natural World.

Free the Weeds! Ban Roundup for LIFE and find alternative cultural environmentally friendly methods to farm our green once pleasent land.
