Press release by Sylvie Gherardi co-signed by Mireille D'ornano and Jean-François Jacob:
The European Union through its agency in charge of food security (European Food Safety Authority-EFSA-) has copied-pasted in its evaluation report on the dangerousness of Glyphosate in 2015 whole passages of another report much more Issued by Glyphosate TaskForce in 2012 (RMC/BFM 15/09/2017).
This organism is the false nose of the chemical industry and in particular of the company Monsanto.
In three weeks ' period, Member States must decide on the renewal of the authorisation for the placing on the market of Glyphosate on the basis of the report of the European Food Safety Authority.
In all collusion, the copied passages refer to journalists as "crucial points regarding the impact of glyphosate on human health".
EFSA demonstrates through these processes that it is no longer an independent agency. That is why the National Front and its European elected representatives are calling for the opening of a temporary Special Committee in the European Parliament as soon as possible.
Taken in default, the European Union proves, as for endocrine disrupters, that it is unable to protect the health of the French and their European neighbours in the face of the power of the lobbies.
