Italy’s Ministry of Health has imposed sweeping new restrictions on the use of the cancer-causing herbicide glyphosate, a move that represents one of the “largest bans on both consumer and agricultural use of the controversial substance.”

The new restrictions cover a wide range of applications, including the use of glyphosate near schools and other public areas where “vulnerable groups” such as children and the elderly risk being affected by exposure to the carcinogenic substance.

From Sustainable Pulse:

“The list of banned areas includes parks, gardens and courtyards, the edges of roads and railways, urban areas, sports fields and recreational areas, playgrounds and green areas within the school buildings, and areas adjacent to health facilities.

“In addition, the pre-harvest use of Glyphosate – a process known as desiccation – has been banned. The desiccation of crops by spraying glyphosate is a primary source for residual pesticide contamination at the consumer level. Finally, the non-agricultural use of glyphosate is banned on soils composed 80% or more of sand–a measure designed to protect groundwater from contamination.”
