The EU is about to re-authorise Glyphosate for another 10 years despite significant evidence of its danger. How could this be?
Whether we will be exposed to toxic chemicals or not is clearly an issue of public concern. At the end of September 2014, the European Commission launched a public consultation to decide whether hormone disrupting pesticides (chemicals with Endocrine Disrupting properties) will be allowed on our food.
The members of the EDC-free coalition, including PAN Europe, launched a platform tool which concerned citizens could use to respond to the "highly technical" public consultation. The consultation ended in January 2015. We were very happy that more than 20,000 people responded to the consultation using our platform tool. This also shows that people are indeed very concerned about exposure to these chemicals that we are subjected to in our daily lives.
The European Commission is currently reviewing more than 27,000 responses they received.
Thank you everyone for your participation and support. Together we can make a difference.
Use this platform tool, and tell the EU regulators to remove hormone disrupting chemicals from our daily lives and food!
