O uso intensivo de Roundup, o herbicida mais vendido no mundo, pode estar a causar uma série de doenças e problemas de saúde, incluindo doença de Parkinson, infertilidade e cancros, de acordo com um estudo científico agora publicado.
Associações científicas, de ambientalistas e de consumidores de diversos países já tinham avisado que a aplicação generalizada de Roundup iria acarretar impactos negativos para pessoas, plantas e animais.
A questão que se coloca é: que agricultura queremos?
Heavy use of the world's most popular herbicide, Roundup, could be linked to a range of health problems and diseases, including Parkinson's, infertility and cancers, according to a new study.
Environmentalists, consumer groups and plant scientists from several countries have warned that heavy use of glyphosate is causing problems for plants, people and animals.
The pesticide industry and EU regulators have known since the 1980s and 90s that Roundup, the world's best selling herbicide, causes birth defects – but have failed to inform the public.
This report, co-authored by international scientists and researchers, reveals that the GM-industry’s own studies (including research commissioned by Monsanto) showed that Roundup’s active ingredient glyphosate causes birth defects in laboratory animals.
