Animal testing for the poison glyphosate

 

Scientists and authorities have been discussing the use of glyphosate and other pesticides for years. While some experts believe that glyphosate can cause cancer in humans, others rely on the opposite.

So far, no satisfactory agreement has been reached. The new approval of glyphosate by the EU in 2017 has provoked strong calls for a revision of the regulatory process.

The poison kills not only “weeds” but also other plants and is thus a major cause of the massive extinction of species, because the animals are deprived of their livelihood.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer’s (IARC) Cancer Research Agency classified it as “probably carcinogenic to humans” in a March 2015 report.

 

For decades countless animal tests have been conducted to determine the “safety” of glyphosate, in which thousands of rats, dogs, mice and rabbits were tortured and killed.

Although glyphosate is extensively used in agricultural and consumer products, it seems more divided than ever before on its potential toxicity!!

When studies produce questionable results, there is an amazing trend – more animal testing is required! This not only causes further animal suffering but also leads to regulatory decisions that take years or even decades.

According to the chairman of the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment, more than 100 individual studies were carried out for only seven of the prescribed toxicity tests of glyphosate. At least 31,000 animals were killed for it.
