Friends of the Earth Opposing Glyphosate Use

05/14/2024

Friends of the Earth is circulating a petition opposing the use of glyphosate.  This environmental activist organization maintains, with justification, that glyphosate is responsible for the destruction of milkweed leading to a decline in population of endangered Monarch butterflies.  In addition, a claim is made that glyphosate is detrimental to bees by interfering with their intestinal biome and inhibiting reproduction.

 

The petition specifically implicates Home Depot and Lowe’s in the sale of glyphosate-containing herbicides for residential and limited commercial application.  Although there is considerable justification on the aspect of insect pollinators, implications that glyphosate is linked to hormone disruption, cancer and other metabolic problems are at this time unfounded and irrelevant to the opposition to the compound.
