Ban Killer Pesticides and save lives
Basically it is saying that US Monsanto pesticide is highly dangerous and cancer causing.
We must get a circle going for agriculture and PMO must make sure all agriculture ministry officials including Minister are part of it and such practicies and use of glyphosate is immediately ended. more
I do agree with you. I was working for a Pvt company manufacturing pesticides.
Pesticides are toxic to the pests as well as humans and decision to use a pesticide for a crop is based on one of the many criteria like the relative benefits. Whether death due to famine bcos of pest infestation is larger than residual toxicity in the soil/crop.
If handling of a pesticide is not safe the regulating authority has to decide whether to use such pesticide or alternates are available with less hazard.
I think merely having a circle which can only share and disseminate information may not be adequate to prevent a bad governance. The circle should be able to interact with a government authorized entity or organization who has the legislative power, executive and judicial powers to decide, regulate regarding use ofpesticides. Only then there is possibility of
having a deliberation for deterence in use of such pesticide like Glyphosate, DDT,etc. more
