Earlier this year, France’s National Assembly just voted to totally ban the bee-killing pesticides known as neonicotinoids. Last spring, ANSES — French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety — sent manufacturers a letter of intent to withdraw its authorization for herbicides containing glyphosate with the adjuvant (additive) tallow amine.
More recently, the EU decided not to back an extension on the use of glyphosate, striking a major blow to the multinational corporation. Then, a French study found hundreds of glaring conflicts of interest in studies that spread glowing reviews of GMOs.
Indeed, France has had a long history of conflict with chemical companies as they try to hang on to the last shreds of their heritage. Big Ag chemical companies can only push a nation so far before they realize what they’ve lost.
