Colombia: In 2015, Colombia outlawed the use of glyphosate to destroy illegal plantations of coca, the raw ingredient for cocaine, out of concern that glyphosate causes cancer. In March of 2019, President Ivan Duque asked for the judicial ban on aerial glyphosate spraying to be lifted.

Czech Republic: Agriculture Minister Miroslav Toman said the country will limit glyphosate use starting in 2019. Specifically, the Czech Republic will ban glyphosate as a weedkiller and drying agent.

Denmark: The Danish Working Environment Authority declared glyphosate
to be carcinogenic and has recommended a change to less toxic chemicals. Aalborg, one of the largest cities in Denmark, issued private-use glyphosate ban in September of 2017. In July of 2018, the Danish government implemented new rules banning the use of glyphosate on all post-emergent crops to avoid residues on foods.

El Salvador: In 2013, the country adapted a law banning glyphosate
over links to deadly kidney disease. However, by 2016, the legislation appeared to stall.

France: French authorities banned the sale, distribution and use of Roundup 360 in early 2019. In May of 2019, French Agriculture Minister Didier Guillaume announced that France would eliminate the use of glyphosate by 2021 with limited exceptions.

Germany: According to Environment Minister Svenja Schulze, Germany plans to update its conditions for pesticide approval and will seek an end date for glyphosate use. Certain retail stores in Germany have also pulled glyphosate-based herbicides like Roundup from shelves.

Greece: Greece was one of nine EU countries to vote against relicensing glyphosate in November of 2017. The country was also one of six EU member states to sign a 2018 letter to the European Commission calling for "an exit plan for glyphosate"" According to Greek Minister of Agricultural Development Evangelos Apostolou, "[i]t is our duty to push in the direction of risk management, in the interests of consumers, producers and the environment." In March of 2018, the Greek government approved a five-year license for Monsanto's Roundup against the wishes of Greek environmentalists.

India: In October of 2018, the government of Punjab banned the sale of
glyphosate in the state. "All pesticide manufacturers, marketers and dealers in the State shall not sell glyphosate formulations-concentrations with immediate effect. The licensing authorities have been asked to take necessary steps for removal of entries for glyphosate from the licenses issued by them," said State Agriculture Secretary K.S. Pannu. In February of 2019, the Indian state of Kerala issued a ban on the sale, distribution and use of glyphosate.

Italy: Italy's Ministry of Health placed a number of restrictions on glyphosate use. Italian legislators have also raised concerns about glyphosate safety, and have come out against relicensing the herbicide in the European Union. In 2016, the Italian government banned the use of glyphosate as a pre-harvest treatment and placed restrictions on glyphosate use in areas frequented by the public. In November of 2017, Italy was one of seven EU nations to vote against re-licensing glyphosate.

Luxembourg: One of Luxembourg's largest supermarket chains removed
glyphosate from its shelves following the release of the IARC glyphosate report. Luxembourg was one of nine EU countries to vote against re-licensing glyphosate in November of 2017, and in early 2018, the country signed a letter to the EU Commission calling for "an exit plan for glyphosate"

Malta: Malta began the process of instituting countrywide ban of glyphosate. However, Environment Minister Jose' Herrera backtracked in January of 2017, saying the country would continue to oppose glyphosate in discussions but would fall in line with the European Union and wait for further studies. In November of 2017, Malta was one of nine EU countries to vote against relicensing glyphosate. The country also signed a letter to the EU Commission in 2018 calling for "an exit plan for glyphosate"

Netherlands: Banned all non-commercial use of glyphosate.

New Zealand: The cities of Auckland and Christchurch passed resolutions to reduce the usage of chemicals for weed and pest control in public places. The Physicians and Scientists for Global Responsibility, a New Zealand charitable trust, called for a glyphosate ban in 2015.

Portugal: Prohibits the use of glyphosate in all public spaces. The president of the Portuguese Medical Association has also called for a worldwide ban of glyphosate.

Scotland: Aberdeen cut back its use of herbicides and Edinburgh's City Council voted to phase out glyphosate. In November of 2017, five of Scotland's six EU parliamentarians voted in favor of a motion that would phase out glyphosate by 2022.

Slovenia: Slovenia was one of six EU member states to sign a 2018 letter to the European Commission citing "concerns" about the risks associated with glyphosate. The letter called upon the Commission to introduce "an exit plan for glyphosate""

Somehow this text above got cut off. It was to have referred to Aspartame as "yet another carcinogenic chemical made by the glorious corporate killer."

You deserve a lot of credit for being on top of this and aspartame for a long time.

I just learned a few months ago that they spray my oatmeal with roundup to dry it for harvesting.

Thank you. It was a breakthrough for me this morning to realize 3 things that precipitated me to write out the article.


1: how far removed the American people are from any serious consciousness or awareness of all of these facts and these considerations so they would scoff at the idea of a poison in their Cheerios and in their Oat meal, and in most of their flour, even the whole wheat flour


2: that it is an enormous scale genocide to CULL the population and impair hundreds of millions of unsuspecting people all over the world


3: that there is this crystal clear historical link between I.G. Farben and today's Bayer/Monsanto. All of the high placed Monsanto Executives who found even higher US Government positions and who bamboozled so many at the EPA and at the FDA~~~~it all lines up, and certainly deserves further analysis and reiterations.

My guess it that Monsatin is going to keep selling Roundup, paying dividends to stockholders, bonus packages for CEO's and then when the lawsuits become so high they will declare bankruptcy.

That is how the capitalist system unregulated works. They take the profits and the externalities are paid by the public.

However, please do not forget what 13000+ lawsuits will in due course do to the bottom line of Bayer's profits (that is just the number pertaining to Roundup, and not including for example the dozen or so from west coast ports trying to clean up the PCB's from the 60's and 70's). I predict they will be wiped off the face of the earth, after their inevitable bankruptcies.

Just the ones in the Bay Area could put Bayer out of business, if the verdicts and combined adjudications continue.


That doesn't mean they will be gone, however. Like for example the Roman Catholic diocese here in Northern New Mexico paid off all of the sexual abuse suits against the actions of pedophile priests, and then declared bankruptcy. That doesn't shut down the doors of the basilica or the churches, of course.
