Show Notes

This Week In Wellness Germany has moved to ban the use of the herbicide Glyphosate from 2023 and phase out its use from 2020 as Adelaide council Marion moves to join other Australian councils in phasing out its use. Several legal challenges by over 50,000 Americans against the manufacturers of Glyphosate (ag and pharmaceutical company Bayer) claim it has contributed to Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cases with the three trials completed so far all falling against Bayer. Despite this Germany plans on banning the chemical over concerns for their insect populations rather than their human ones, citing concerns for the impact on their food sources. The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has labeled glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic.”
