Dr. Stephanie Seneff presentation on harmful effects of glyphosate

24 October 2013

In her presentation entitled “Roundup: The Elephant in the Room,” Dr. Seneff outlines adverse health and environmental effects caused by chemicals that are being applied directly to foods we eat.

Translated from the Party for the Animals in the Netherlands:

Pesticides to be removed from shelves of garden centers

Thursday, March 6, 2014 13:01

From the end of 2015 on, the dangerous pesticide glyphosate may no longer be sold to individuals. Glyphosate is a component of RoundUp, which is also sold to individuals as weed control. The Dutch House of Representatives today voted for a motion by Esther Ouwehand [Party for the Animals MP], which prohibits the sale of glyphosate to individuals.

Glyphosate has increasingly been linked to health problems such as infertility, birth defects, damage to the nervous system, Parkinson’s disease and various forms of cancer. Besides the health risks for humans the use of chemical pesticides also leads to loss of biodiversity and increasingly difficulties in purifying drinking water.

In 2011, the House called for a total ban on the use of glyphosate for non-agriculture purposes. Because municipalities also use the poison in their weed control and even for individuals the pesticide is for sale everywhere. Contrary to the wishes of Parliament, however, the government made all kinds of exceptions to the requested prohibition. So people were allowed to use glyphosate weed killers in their gardens, but not on their terraces. Unclear, uncontrollable and irresponsible, given all the risks to health and the environment .

Now that the motion of the Party for the Animals has been voted for, the government should get pesticides with glyphosate, including the best-selling RoundUp, off the shelves.
