Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency have approved dicamba tolerant soybeans, Monsanto announced today.

The regulatory approval means Monsanto may soon offer a soybean with tolerance for glyphosate and dicamba.

Round Up isn’t working, so more herbicides and pesticides will be needed,  as predicted years ago. Just what we need, more chemicals on our food….

  1. Health Canada should be disbanded! They obviously have no idea what they are doing!

  2. I totally agree with the first comment. Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is useless and downright harmful. This agency is too much in the chemical industry’s corner. This is why chemical industry’s spokesmen sing praises of the PMRA. The PMRA’s scientists–almost all are toxicologists–merely examine rat studies provided by the industry. However, rats have detoxification genes missing in humans. The PMRA is very weak in epidemiology, i.e. science pertaining to human beings. No independent research is ever done in Health Canada’s PMRA, which is paid at least $8 million annually by the chemical industry for approval of their pesticides. The PMRA is unlikely ever to reject industry’s registration requests. As to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency their approval of dicamba tolerant soybeans also speaks volumes. Invariably GMO’s cultivation results in the ever-increasing use of toxic chemicals and the appearance of pesticide resistant noxious weeds. This is a vicious circle: more pesticides applied, more huge noxious weeds, more pesticides. Obviously, a hopeless situation. We predict a crisis looming in the not to distant future.

  3. I apologize for the typo in my last sentence, which should read: “We predict a crisis looming in the not too distant future.”

  4. If you are unsure or need ideas here is what I said:
    I would really like you guys to stop playing little brother to the US and STOP all GMO crops in Canada. You can’t possibly think they aren’t dangerous and I am disgusted that my government is partnering and selling out to Monsant, DuPont etc. We haven’t had a responsible government in 30 years and now you’re creating an irreversible catastophe for all of us. PUT THIS VOTE TO THE PUBLIC!!! Call a referendum. Nothing could be more important and we WILL respond unless every single one of you is a coward (of which I am very much afraid).

  5. I AGREE WITH EILEEN! DISBAND HEALTH CANADA.THIS BAND OF IDIOTS KNOW NOTHING ABOUT HEALTH OR PLANTS.THESE IMBICILES SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO BE COLLECTING A PAYCHECK FROM HONEST TAXPAYERS.YOU BELONG IN THE SAME JAIL CELL AS YOUR (GODFATHER ) LEADER ,HARPER!.
