French Beekeepers Go After Bayer After Glyphosate Found in Honey
“I’m not going to be like everyone else, I’m going to file suit against Monsanto”
The herbicide was detected by Famille Michaud, one of France’s largest honey marketers, in three batches of honey provided by its members.
While evidence has repeatedly shown that links glyphosate to cancer, liver disease, and a host of other negative health effects, it has also been linked to the decline in the bee population, making the discovery of glyphosate in honey all the more concerning since it is clearly reaching bees.
The new European Soviet, the EU, renewed the license for glyphosate weedkillers last November despite many Europeans and even European governments having deep reservations and intense opposition.
A lawyer for the cooperative, Emmanuel Ludot, says the contaminated honey came from a producer whose hives are located near sunflower fields, beets, and rapeseed.
But Ludot warned not to dismiss the idea that the contamination was also coming from gardeners who use Roundup on their properties.
The complaint came right as the merger between Monsanto and Bayer took place, which has created a agrochemical monster the likes of which has never been seen before, at least not since IG Farben, which Bayer was very much a part of, being engaged in the facilitation of Hitler’s Nazi atrocities and the extermination of Jews in Germany’s network of concentration camps.
Ludot hopes that the complaint will inspire and inquiry that will determine the amount of glyphosate in honey batches and the health consequences it may have for humans.
“It’s also a matter of knowing how widespread this might be. Famille Michaud tells me this isn’t an isolated case,” he said.
The President of Famille Michaud, Vincent Michaud, told AFP that “we regularly detect foreign substances, including glyphosate.”
If glyphosate is found, the organization rejects the entire shipment.
“Usually, beekeepers will say ‘In that case I’ll sell the honey at a roadside stand or a market’, where there’s no quality control,” Michaud said.
“But this beekeeper had the courage to say ‘I’m not going to be like everyone else, I’m going to file suit against Monsanto’,” he said.
