Europe Bans Cancerous Pesticides

By David Silverberg
Posted Dec 24, 2008 in Environment
Great news for Europeans, bad news for chemical manufacturers: the Europe Union is planning to "phase out highly toxic pesticides" after a vote on Jan. 14, 2009.
According to an article, "the law prioritizes action against pesticide ingredients which cause cancer, which are mutagenic or which can harm reproductive processes, including reducing fertility or causing birth defects."
Is this the right way for Europe to proceed? Does your country ban pesticides?
