My wife who loved gardening and growing flowers died December 2017 from non Hodgkin - Lymphoma and I have relatives of the next generation who are now living with children suffering Autism. There is a cause for every devastating health affect and the link to my wife's devastating early death and relatives with Autism has been found.
In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) identified glyphosate as a potential carcinogen to humans. They found a strong association between glyphosate and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which is a type of blood cancer that affects the white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lawsuits against Roundup — Monsanto’s flagship product — began piling in after the IARC report. Over 1,100 people all over the U.S.have filed lawsuits against Monsanto. Allegedly, exposure to Roundup caused them to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma. There are now more than 50 lawsuits against Monsanto that continue to pile up in the U.S. District Court in San, Francisco.
Also earlier this year, the California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment confirmed that glyphosate would be added to California’s Proposition 65 list of chemicals known to cause cancer. Glyphosate is as deadly weed killer promotes multiple myeloma, leukemia, sperm damage, infertility, kidney damage, autism, endocrine disruption, DNA damage and birth defects.
This Poison and proven carcinogen Needs to be Banned in the UK including current TV advertising for the use of Roundup.
Glyphosate is an herbicide. It is applied to the leaves of plants by spay or 'just a touch' to kill both broadleaf plants and grasses. The sodium salt form of glyphosate is used to regulate plant growth and kill / ripen fruit and grain crops in the UK by making them grow faster and eventually die.
Unfortunately now people in the UK continue to be poisoned by this heavily marketed and over used product already banned by more 'wiser' Government authorities in Malta, Sri Lanka, The Netherlands and Argentina.
If you care about this generation and the next Please sign this Petition to get 'Roundup' banned by farmers and gardeners in the UK for health reasons.
