Flaws in Glyphosate Toxicity Assessment

This report by PAN Germany's Senior Toxicologist, Peter Clausing, argues that in their assessments leading to the possible re-authorisation of Glyphosate, EU authorities failed to acknowledge its toxicity, using highly questionable arguments, and in clear violation of existing guidance documents.

Political decision-makers should not play along with the pesticide industry in this scientifically questionable and, as it seems, interest-driven game. Instead they should be objective in their assessment of glyphosate, ensure that the existing scientific evidence is evaluated correctly, and apply the precautionary principle to guarantee a high level of protection for humans and the environment.

The health of 500 million EU citizens is at stake.

Bee Emergency Call : How Member States keep using banned neonicotinoids and how the European Commission does nothing to stop them

February 2017 - Executive Summary

Bees are still under threat from abuse of pesticides. Four pesticides which are highly toxic to bees (including neonicotinoids and fipronil) were banned in 2013. However, the pesticide and seed industry, farmers and many EU Member States are continuing to use these pesticides. This is through a loophole in the Pesticides Regulation that allows for ‘emergency authorisations’.

Measures against endocrine disrupting chemicals

The importance of taking action against endocrine disrupting chemicals

The harmful effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals have been known for years. Now that political leaders are about to take crucial decisions on their regulation, WECF, PAN Europe and Wemos want to create awareness and disseminate knowledge about the risks and regulatory possibilities. We want the Dutch government to implement protective measures both here and in the European context. The measures taken by France, Denmark and Sweden, which we have analysed in this report, are examples of effective policy.

Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals and Future Generations: Time for EU to Take Action

With this compilation of scientific opinions PAN Europe aims to help the general public and regulators to understand the crucial need to regulate the use of EDCs in Europe in a manner that will protect humans, particularly the most vulnerable babies-in-the-womb, newborns and children as well as the environment and all its ecosystems. The decision of the “correct” scientific criteria will define the health of our future generations.
