LMP wants to ban carcinogenic herbicide in Hungary, now it is still legal

According to the LMP, a herbicide called glyphosate should be banned forever from 2023.

The drug has been found by the World Health Organization (WHO) to be carcinogenic and fertility-reducing, the opposition party co-chair said at an online press conference on Facebook on Saturday.

János Kendernay explained that glyphosate is easily soluble, it appears quickly in surface waters, so it can also get into drinking water and be incorporated into food.

To stop this process, the LMP is initiating a parliamentary proposal to ban the herbicide as soon as its license expires by the end of 2022.
