Glyphosate: an effective ecological herbicide, not carcinogenic, not endocrine disrupting
Opinion of three agronomists and a former INRA research director:
«For almost 50 years, glyphosate has been used to the satisfaction of farmers, communities, businesses (notably SNCF), amateur gardeners, without causing the slightest health problem.
Environmentalists began to disparage it when, in 1996, Monsanto launched genetically modified plants tolerating glyphosate, the famous GMOs demonized in France while adopted massively in most major agricultural countries.
Hostility to glyphosate escalated in 2012 when a study by Gilles-Eric Séralini, militant scientist, was published with great noise, seeking to prove the danger of transgenic corn treated with glyphosate on rats laboratory. A study very well orchestrated on the media level but later discredited on the scientific level.»

As we can see once again, political ecologists seek to manipulate us to achieve anti-capitalist and anti-development goals unrelated to ecology or scientific truth. For this they do not hesitate to lie, to misinform and to exploit scientific studies through selection. When I read or listen to them, it comes back to me when I listened to Radio-Moscow on shortwave, during the Soviet era: lies and pure propaganda.
