The move by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday came the same day that a federal jury in San Francisco delivered a verdict in favor of Edward Hardeman, who said his cancer was caused by exposure to Roundup.

“Kicking Bayer-Monsanto and its cancer-causing weedkiller off L.A. County property was absolutely the right call,” Environmental Working Group President Ken Cook said in a statement. “We know glyphosate causes cancer in people and shouldn’t be sprayed anywhere – period. We don’t know how many Angelenos have been exposed to this dangerous chemical through its use by the county, but we can keep others from being exposed.”

Thanks Stephen for this useful post. I agree.

Most countries are banning the use of roundup. However, it is on shelves in many US and Mexican markets.

Even Amazon still carries it, but Costco put an end to Roundup sales in January 2019, so here and there, there are glimmers of sanity and subsequent good news.

Hopefully, there is a domino effect in progress. This is one evil giant that needs to feel the wrath of David's sling.

We not only have to see RoundUp terminated, but also the whole GM business and the idea that life itself can be intellectual property. These are 3 horrific developments that should have been vetoed at the drawing board stage by actual working regulation bodies.
