...Brazil’s Federal Public Prosecutor has asked the country’s justice department to suspend the use of glyphosate, which is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup—the world’s top-selling herbicide.

In addition, the prosecutor has also targeted another herbicide known as 2,4-D and the active ingredients methyl parathion, lactofem, phorate, carbofuran, abamectin, tiram and paraquat, according to GMWatch.

Actions have already been filed within Brazil’s court system, the first of which seeks to compel the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) to reevaluate the toxicity of the eight active ingredients suspected of causing damage to people’s health and the environment.
Majia here: This is great news!

Please read why Roundup is NOT safe. Thank goodness a country is taking action.

  1. Shills ran the gauntlet in the local papers about a year and a half ago, insisting that 2,4-D was safe "if used as directed".
    Health Canada seems to agree, from industry data off course.

    Anyway, it turned out that patents covering such chemicals were lapsing. It was all about the fiat dollars - go figure!

    If only we were half as progressive on issues like this in Candu. What the hell, the Brazilians distrust Canadian governance too. So sad to see my "leaders" engage in industrial espionage against my own wishes at least.

    So many I's, yet so few can see...

    Be well, Majia. Your vision is fine.
    It is what we truly see unencumbered by hubris or avarice that sucks more so than a Guinness Book of World Record breaking sized industrial vacuum cleaner!
