...why are none of the Governments acting?
I find this all very sinister and scary. Monsanto is too powerful for the Governments to upset.....so no-one wants to ban the widely used chemicals that they make, even though there is good science behind banning them.
It's not just pesticides either.
Over 20 years ago when I was a nipper in Forestry college, Monsanto could do no wrong. Roundup was fairly new on the market and was 'the safest herbicide' that you could use. We were told that it was 'neutralised by the soil' and so only affected the plant it sprayed and that it was far safer than any other herbicide. Roundup/glyphosate was one of the big chemicals that made Monsanto the company that they are today.
Nowadays, people are pushing to ban Glyphosate for worries over a number of health issues including causing cancer.
It's worrying that Governments don't have the balls to say to these companies that these dangerous herbicides and pesticides will be banned.
