‘More than a million people have signed a petition demanding that the European Union ban glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer, over fears it causes cancer.

“In less than five months, more than one million EU citizens have joined our call for a glyphosate ban,” said David Schwartz, coordinator at the European Citizens Initiative, which is behind the petition, as quoted by AFP.

“European citizens aren’t fooled by the pesticide industry’s lobbying efforts or the faulty science it’s peddling,” he said.

The group said it achieved the minimum number of signatures required to receive a formal response from the European Commission – 1 million names from at least seven countries – in record time.

Environmental organization Greenpeace said the five-month campaign was the “fastest growing… since the EU introduced this [petition] tool in 2012.”

“Our politicians need to hear this message loud and clear,” Schwartz said.’
