Genetic malformations, linked to the pesticide Roundup of Monsanto. And the EU knew it. This is what emerges from the report "Roundup and birth defects: is the public being kept in the dark?". Created by an international team of scientists and published on Tuesday 7 June, the study seems to have revealed that for years, since 1980, it has been known that glyphosate, the chemical on which Roundup is based, can cause birth defects in laboratory animals.

According to the experts, therefore, even the EU was aware of it but this news has never been made public. The researchers, confirming this risk, have carried out analyzes for months and have discovered that the genetically modified crops on which Roundup is used contain a pathogen that can cause abortion beautiful animals.

An independent study previously carried out by Argentine scientists also found that Roundup was responsible for malformations in frogs and poultry at concentrations much lower than those found in sprayed fields.

Don Huber, professor emeritus at Purdue University, wrote an open letter to US Agriculture Minister Tom Vilsack, in which he wrote: “It is well documented that the glyphosate promotes soil pathogenesis and is already involved in the increase of over 40 plant diseases, but it dismantles plant defenses against chelators, vital nutrients, and reduces bioavailability nutrients in animal feed, which in turn can cause animal-based disorders. "

Impossible to ignore it again. The EU is not of the same opinion. The authorization of glyphosate was due to be reviewed in 2012, but the Commission has muted a directive that sets the review, together with that of 38 other pesticides, for 2015.

Claire Robinson, co-author of the study, explained: “There appears to have been a deliberate will to cover up the truth by the chemical industry (explainable but not justifiable) and by those who had to control (inexplicable and unjustifiable). All this on the skin of public safety. Also because the Roundup it is not only used in agriculture, but also in gardening, parks and green areas in schools, thanks to false information that it is safe ".
