RoundUp is the most used herbicide in the world today and it is well known to be toxic. Glyphosate is one of the key ingredients in the herbicide and its copycat herbicides from other chemical companies. The California EPA announced today that it intends to label glyphosate as cancer causing. This news is HUGE. California is the world’s 5th largest economy. Once California does this, other places will surely follow suit. Most GMO crops are modified to withstand being sprayed with RoiundUp, creating a toxic product that is marketed as safe, nutritious food. Surely, biotech companies no longer have a leg to stand on when it comes to producing this chemical or crops modified to withstand spraying with a glyphosate based herbicide.
A full ban must be instituted immediately and producers must pay to reverse the damage their products have done to the ecology of the planet.
