NGO disappointed as French government report ignores recommendations on the dangers of pesticides
On the 28th April the French Parliamentary office for the evaluation of the scientific and technological choices (OPECST) released their final report on “Pesticides and health”.
HEAL members Mouvement pour le droit et le respect des générations futures (MDRGF) and RES – Réseau Environnement Sante have both voiced disappointment in what they believe to be, a weak report that fails to acknowledge new science on the treats to health and the environment from pesticides.
The disappointment of the NGO community is particularly acute as their welcomed input to the draft report year – where they had voiced their concerns and provided scientific evident to support these – was not acknowledged in the final version.
