ECHA has 6 months to produce a report based on this decision, which will relaunch efforts to renew the use of glyphosate in the European Union for an extended period.

As in the previous report by the European Food Safety Agency after the International Center for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization classified glyphosate as "probably carcinogenic to humans" in March 2015, the Committee Risk Assessment based its findings on unpublished industry reports (see here).

Remarkable evidence from independent researchers was discarded in a weight-of-evidence approach that prioritizes "risk" over elimination of hazard. And the report was issued two days after a United States court released internal Monsanto documents that record the company's constant attempts to prepare studies related to glyphosate and to crush the independent analyzes of the agencies. official regulators (see here). The court released the documents, which reveal the degree of conclusion between Monsanto and the Environmental Protection Agency, in response to a lawsuit filed by farmworkers linking glyphosate exposure to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer that arises in the blood.

The European Commission is due to issue a final decision by the end of 2017. Member states will again put the reauthorization of glyphosate to a vote in the EU Standing Committee on Plants, Animals and Food; in the absence of a special majority, the Commission will decide.

In Europe, the fight against glyphosate, and the broader fight to rescue the food system from its addiction to toxic pesticides and destructive production methods, has gotten back to the point it was a year ago. Public authorities have once again demonstrated the extent to which they fall prey to the industry they are charged with regulating, while evidence continues to accumulate to ban glyphosate.

Now more than ever public pressure is needed to get the food system out of the pesticide spiral (see here).
