Pesticides: UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food Report:

Agrochemicals do not guarantee food safety, are toxic to health and environment

Today (8 March 2017), the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food will present a report[1] before the UN Human Rights Council on the many issues posed by pesticides. Inefficient to guarantee food safety, toxic to human health and the environment, it is part of an agricultural model that is outdated and benefits only to multinationals and trade while EU farmers struggle to survive
