France wants to ban notorious monsanto pesticide

France’s Ministry of the Environment has asked garden centers to take “Roundup” out of sales. Millions of farmers and private individuals are spraying the pesticide, although it is considered to be carcinogenic.

France’s Minister of Agriculture Ségolène Royal has announced a ban on the sale of the herbicide "Roundup" in garden centers. France must "go on the offensive if pesticides are stopped," the minister told France 3 on Sunday.

Roundup is the best-selling weed killer in the world and is used by farmers and cities as well as by private individuals. It works with the controversial chemical glyphosate. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a subsidiary of the World Health Organization (WHO), classified the substance as "likely" to be carcinogenic in March. However, the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) had not yet found any evidence in 2014 that glyphosate could be carcinogenic.
