Spain: According to Kistiñe Garcia of the Spanish NGO, Ecologistas en
Acción, Barcelona, Madrid, Zaragoza and the region of Extremuda have decided to ban glyphosate. The regions of La Rioja (major Spanish wine region) and Aragon have also approved motions against endocrine-disrupting chemicals, which includes glyphosate.

Sri Lanka: Sri Lanka was the first country to issue a nationwide ban on glyphosate. However, in 2018, the government decided to lift the ban due to crop losses and overgrowing weeds.

Sweden: Raised concerns about glyphosate safety and has pushed against
relicensing the herbicide in the EU. In 2017, the Swedish Chemicals Agency (SCA) announced it was planning to tighten rules on private use of plant protection products. Under the plan, private users would only be allowed to use products containing "low-risk substances." According to the SCA, glyphosate is an example of an active substance not expected to be included among low-risk substances, meaning in due time, private consumers may not be permitted to use herbicides containing glyphosate.

Switzerland: Concerned about public wellbeing, the Swiss supermarket chains Migros and Coop removed glyphosate-based products from their shelves due to health risks. In 2017, the Green party put forth a plan to ban glyphosate in Switzerland. The proposed plan was rejected by the Federal Council, Switzerland's executive.

United Kingdom: Following the landmark $289 million Monsanto Roundup
verdict on Aug. 10, 2018, Homebase, one of the UK's largest DIY retailers, announced that it would review the sale of Roundup and Ranger Pro. However, according to the Sun, Homebase and other major retailers still stock the weed killers for sale.

The following boroughs and townships have issued bans or
restrictions on pesticides and herbicides, including glyphosate:
Brighton
Bristol
Bury (ban in children's play areas)
Croydon
Derry City (Northern Ireland)
Frensham
Frome
Glastonbury
Hammersmith & Fulham
Lewes
Midlothian (Scotland)
North Somerset
Trafford
Wadebridge

Vietnam: Following the jury verdict in Hardeman v. Monsanto Co., Vietnam announced that it would ban glyphosate imports. According to Hoang Trung, Director of the Plant Protection Department under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, "the removal of this substance from the list of pesticides allowed to be used in Vietnam will be done in the near future."

As if killing weeds is not enough, oat and wheat growers use Roundup to "dessicate" (kill the plant and let it then dry out, to make it easier to harvest!) their crops, and this is the reason Roundup/Glyphosate is creeping into so many commonly consumed food products.

Joel Ransom, North Dakota State University agronomist, writes that there no maintained statistics on the number of acres of wheat desiccated with glyphosate; along with wheat and oats glyphosate desiccates wheat, oats, lentils, peas, non-GMO soybeans, corn, flax, rye, triticale, buckwheat, millet, canola, sugar beets, sunflowers, and potatoes; plus edible beans grown in Washington and Idaho.

Charles Benbrook, Ph.D., and recognized author on this subject: 'Spraying glyphosate on wheat prior to harvest, known as desiccating, began in Scotland in the 1980s. Farmers had trouble getting wheat and barley to dry evenly so they can start harvesting. So they kill the crop (with glyphosate) one to two weeks before harvest to accelerate the drying down of the grain. I don't understand why Monsanto and the food industry don't voluntarily end this practice. They know it contributes to high dietary exposure (50%) of glyphosate.'

The Farben/Monsanto connection: something you didn't know about? Read this, please:


On September 3, 1941, the first experiments using an insecticide which had been adapted to kill people were conducted at the Auschwitz concentration camp. Soviet prisoners of war were gassed to death with a cyanide-based insecticide in a dress rehearsal for the mass extermination of Jews and others known as the Holocaust.

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.
