There Will Be NO Prohibition Against Glyphosate In Brazil



Brazil’s Health Agency Says

Glyphosate Does Not Cause Cancer



[  Brazil, also known as the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and Latin America.  Brazil is the world’s fifth-largest country by area and the fifth most populous, with a population of 208 million.  The agriculture of Brazil is historically one of the principal bases of Brazil’s economy, worth 65 billion dollars US.  While its initial focus was on sugarcane, Brazil eventually became the world’s largest exporter of coffee, soybeans, beef, and crop-based ethanol.  Brazil is the world’s largest exporter of soybeans and relies heavily on glyphosate products.  ] 


This is a really great day for evidence-based policy, which means it’s a really bad day for environmental and anti-GMO activists. 


Brazil’s health agency, known as ANVISA ( Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária ), declared that glyphosate DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER. 


The press release issued by the agency ( translated into English using Google ) says that glyphosate DOES NOT POSE A HAZARD to the average person because   


  the product has NOT been classified as mutagenic, carcinogenic, toxic for reproduction, teratogenic ( causing fetal malformation ), among others. 


The only warning that the report issued was for people who apply glyphosate in the field or live nearby. 


The report says   


The main conclusion of the re-evaluation is that glyphosate poses a greater risk to workers working in crops and to people living close to these areas. 


Therefore, the main measures proposed are focused on measures related to the handling of the product during its application and its dispersion. 


In other words, the report plans to update some safety guidelines for people who work in the field. 




This is completely in line with the scientific consensus, and the report itself notes that as well   


The conclusion is similar to that obtained in other countries that have recently reviewed the use of glyphosate in the field, such as the United States and Canada, in addition to the European Union. 


[ Clearly, there will be NO prohibition against glyphosate in Brazil. ]

Activists Go Berserk



Anti-Biotech & Environmental Activists Reject

The Scientific Consensus On Glyphosate



Not that any of this matters to the [ anti-pesticide & environmental-terrorist organizations ] that get paid to lie about bio-technology, such as Greenpeace and the Environmental Working Group. 


To those [ fanatical- ] activists, the scientific consensus on glyphosate is simply evidence of a gigantic Monsanto-led conspiracy [ ?!?! ] that somehow involves the US EPA, the European Food Safety Authority, the World Health Organization, and now Brazil’s ANVISA. 


All of [ these national regulatory agencies ] agree that glyphosate DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER. 


[ Additionally ], another conspiracy theory was posted on Twitter by science writer and anti-biotech [ fanatical- ] activist Michael Balter ( who, incidentally, was fired by Science Magazine for a « breakdown of trust » ). 


Notice the conspiracy he invokes involves the American Academy for the Advancement of Science, California State University-Long Beach, Monsanto, Bayer, and the judicial system.

Much to [ the surprise of observers ], there’s absolutely NO mention of black helicopters, chemtrails, FEMA death camps, or Area 51.

Court Over-Turned Ban On Glyphosate



On September 3rd, 2018, a Brazilian court OVER-TURNED AN INJUNCTION PROHIBITING products containing glyphosate, KNOCKING DOWN a previous ruling that had been set to DISRUPT the soy planting season set to begin in September 2018. 


A Brazilian judge had ruled to HALT THE REGISTRATION of new glyphosate-based products in the country and to SUSPEND EXISTING REGISTRATIONS after 30 days, until health agency ANVISA issued a pending ruling on its safety.


That 30-day deadline was due to pass on September 3rd, 2018, just as the first month of soy planting got under way. 


The INJUNCTION and the subsequent REVERSAL also applied to insecticide abamectin and fungicide thiram. 


Judge Kássio Marques, of the regional federal court of the first district in Brasilia, based the ruling SUSPENDING THE INJUNCTION on the government’s argument that banning glyphosate, and the other two agro-chemicals, could HARM the country’s economy.


Marques said in the decision   


  nothing justifies the suspension and abrupt removal of registrations of products containing glyphosate, abamectin, and thiram as active ingredients without an analysis of the serious impacts on the country’s economy and population in general. 


Brazil is the world’s largest exporter of soybeans and RELIES HEAVILY on glyphosate products. 


ANVISA, which has been reviewing glyphosate’s safety since 2008 without issuing a decision, said it was aware of the OVER-TURNING OF THE INJUNCTION and would take the necessary legal and technical steps in response.

Joining The World-Wide Trends
Against Pesticide Bans



World-wide, government officials are no longer readily jumping in favour of fanatical-prohibition.  It is clear that pesticide-hating fanatжcs conspire to impose prohibition in order  to destroy green space and manufacturer industries.  At this time, there are dozens of jurisdictions that have aggressively-challenged and even repealed fanatжcal-prohibitions, or have granted professional lawn care businesses with an exception status. 


On green spaces, these jurisdictions have kept children safe, since, with prohibitions, children are at high risk of slipping and tripping and becoming seriously hurt.  Unfortunately, it is impossible to keep green spaces well-maintained, safe, and attractive without conventional pest control products.  Playing surfaces become thin and yellow, and over-run with weeds and infested with insects, resulting in the dismal destruction of turf playing surfaces.  In essence, pest control products prevent slipping and tripping injuries and keep children safe. 


There are over fifty jurisdictions that have kept children safe by stopping or rescinding or limiting or beginning to repeal fanatical-prohibitions, or by granting professional lawn care or agricultural businesses with an exception status. 



The following jurisdictions have joined the world-wide trends against pesticide bans   



   Alberta ( Province )      Altona ( Manitoba )      Anne Arundel County ( Maryland )      Ashland ( Oregon )      Beaumont ( Alberta )      Belleville ( Ontario )      Brazil ( see notes below )      British Columbia ( BC, Province )      Calgary ( Alberta )      California ( State – see notes below )      Campbell River ( BC )      Charlottetown ( Prince Edward Island )      Chicago ( Illinois )      Deer Lake ( Newfoundland )      Durango ( Colorado )      Edmonton ( Alberta )      European Union ( EU, nations of – see notes below )     Everett ( Washington )      Guelph ( Ontario )      Guelph-Eramosa ( Ontario )      Hudson ( Quebec – see notes below )      Kauaʻi County ( Hawaiʻi )      Kelowna ( BC )      Lawrence ( Kansas )      Lincoln City ( Oregon )      Maine ( State )      Manitoba ( Province – see notes below )      Merritt ( BC )      New Brunswick ( Province )      Newfoundland ( Province )      Ontario ( Province – see notes below )      Parksville ( BC )      Port Alberni ( BC )      Portage La Prairie ( Manitoba )      Prince Edward Island ( Province )      Quebec ( Province – see notes below )      Regina ( Saskatchewan )      Revelstoke ( British Columbia )      Rossland ( BC )      Saint John’s ( Newfoundland )      Saint Josephine ( Oregon )      Salmon Arm ( BC )      Saskatchewan ( Province )      Scarborough ( Maine )      Steinbach ( Manitoba )      Stratford ( Prince Edward Island )      Stuartburn ( Manitoba )      Summerside ( Prince Edward Island )      United Kingdom ( UK – see notes below )      USA ( see notes below )      Vernon ( BC )      Winkler ( Manitoba )

We Speak The Whole Truth About Glyphosate

From An Independent Perspective



We are the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that conspire to destroy the Green space and other industries ( NORAHG ).  As a non-profit and independent organization, we are environmentalists who are dedicated to reporting about truth-challenged pesticide-hating fanatжcs ( HUJE ) who conspire to destroy businesses that are dependent on the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products.  We also report on the work of several highly-rated leading experts who have recognized expertise, training, and background in matters concerning pest control products, and who promote environmental realism and pesticide truths. 


Not surprisingly, enviro-fanatжcs have demonstrated that they are incapable of processing overwhelming scientific evidence.  Should we trust these fanatжcs, who conveniently ignore scientific evidence, and attempt to impose their politicized-doctrines and twisted life-style choices against our society ?!?! 


NORAHG was the brain-child of Mr William H Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.  We dare to defy the pesticide-hating fanatжcs by exploring the whole truth from an independent perspective on The Pesticide Truths Web-Site   If you wish to receive free reports on issues that concern you, please contact us at   WILLIAM H GATHERCOLE AND NORAH G
