On Tuesday, the European Commission adopted a regulatory text on endocrine disrupters, validated by the reversal of the French position on the subject.
Until now, France has shown courage in opposing the Commission's fanciful and irresponsible definitions, which expose and weaken the health of our citizens a little more by regulating the influence of industry lobbies Chemical.
Endocrine disrupters already have enormous consequences for human health: declining fertility, early puberty, birth defects, the fall of the intellectual quotient, breast cancer, etc.
The French government has just put itself behind the defenders of profitability and profit, while the effects of these harmful substances cost at least EUR 157 billion per year to European health systems.
Even more serious, this week, the formal notification to the European competition authorities of the takeover of Monsanto by Bayer has been ignored by the media, while an unprecedented concentration of the powers of the chemical industry is emerging. This alliance will increase the nuisance capabilities of these two controversial companies, to the dismay of the health of our citizens.
The members of the National Front of the European Parliament denounce and condemn these decisions which endanger the future of our people, our children and our health.
