@IslingtonLB and others should stop use of #glyphosate 

… and not replace it with the next product from Monsanto whose claims that it is safe are only backed up by their multi-million dollar legal department.

CNN: Monsanto now paying millions to victims of glyphosate exposure

I don’t actually read CNN but this is the first coverage of it I found. Roundup (glyphosate) is used extensively throughout the UK by councils, the railways etc. We all have it in our bodies and due to the way it is used agriculturally just before harvest, it is in all our foodstuffs and comes out in our urine (fortunately, compared to other chemicals with accumulate).
