CommonDreams

Too much ambiguity and confusion.
What's a person to do, and who do you believe? Our governments are supposed to be accountable, to regulate and make decisions " that protect public interest, the environment, and our health."
Human health and survival depends on a healthy environment and the food that we eat.
Are readers to understand,… that farmers, as the growers of food, have to keep inhaling this poison which makes them and us sick in the process, so we can save the worldwide population explosion from starvation.? I Don't Think So!
And, who came up with the "Bright Idea" that "we" have a responsibility to feed the world's masses of hungry people. Is that written down somewhere?

Prof. David Suzuki tells us.."If we pollute the air,water and soil that keeps us alive and well, and destroy thebiodiversity that allows natural systems to function, no amount of money will save us".

Who can we believe?….. for even the "experts" are having some doubts and misleadings about glyphosate.
Our governments are supposed to be accountable for actions, to regulate and make decisions that protect the public interest, the environment. plus our health and wellbeing.
Human health and our survival depends on a healthy environment.
Unfortunately, today's governments are unduly influenced and controlled in too many ways by industry and corporations with their promises of investments,development,technological solutions and globalized trade.
