Attention America! Your Roundup Ready diet causes cancer according to a recent study by the World Health Organization. Some nations are taking this news seriously by banning these dangerous chemicals from polluting their territory.

The small island of Bermuda, an independent British Overseas Territory, announced a ban on the importation of Monsanto’s best-selling weed killer Roundup today. The boycott is temporary in order to assess the WHO’s research.According to the Royal Gazette:

The importation of the weed spray Roundup has been suspended amid studies about the cancer-causing risk to humans of five pesticides.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer, the specialised cancer agency of the World Health Organisation, asked a group of experts to spend a year examining the data from peer-reviewed studies about glyphosate — the active ingredient found in Roundup.

The research found that the herbicide, along with two other insecticides, was classified as “probably carcinogenic to humans” — a description used when there is limited evidence of cancer-causing effects on humans, yet sufficient evidence of it in animals.

At present, only two of the recently analysed substances are permitted for importation and use in Bermuda. The three others reviewed are already banned.

In light of the study, Bermuda will suspend all importation of glyphosate products pending the continuing assessment of the research. It is hoped that this will be complete within six months.

The announcement by the Bermuda government comes just one day after Colombia’s President Juan Manuel Santos urged farmers to stop spraying glyphosate herbicide on coca crops.

It seems like Monsanto’s “Discredit Bureau” has a lot of work to do to debunk the evidence that chemicals designed to kill living things don’t harm other living things that eat those chemicals.

After years of research and a series of unpleasant experiences concerning the current child protection services system, Alec Cope decided to combat the cancerous corruption through information. Freelance writing articles as a form of protest and distributing them throughout his former high-school and local area, Alec struck special chords with whomever he was in contact with.

Alec has been involved in activism such as sit down protests as well as Idle No More gatherings. Being independent for the majority of his time, Alec became a member of the WeAreChange family to assist one of the organizations that inspired him to become active in the first place. With a larger platform and positive support Alec has committed the majority of his time to research, writing, and maintaining social media with the goal to continue expanding the awakening sweeping throughout all levels of society.

Growing up within a rural area in Northern Michigan as well as being a native American descendant, Alec is seeking to expose environmental abuse in his state as well as globally. A high-school dropout, Alec chases his passion for writing and empowering individuals while showing any isolated person that they too can overcome the odds with a community that will support them. Alec lives in the lower peninsula of Michigan near Kalamazoo.
