Miami now joins Miami Beach and Stuart, two cities in Florida who have also banned glyphosate.
"Due to glyphosate's many health risks and its ubiquitous nature in our food, water and alcohol, the use of glyphosate in the U.S. should be banned unless and until it can be proven safe."
"Our analysis focused on providing the best possible answer to the question of whether or not glyphosate is carcinogenic. As a result of this research, I am even more convinced that it is."
"Just as tobacco companies can no longer talk about the health benefits of smoking, the chemical industry shouldn't be able to write its own authorization for its own potentially harmful products."
While Bayer continues to argue that there is no correlation between glyphosate and cancer, the second trial out of around 9,300 pending lawsuits will start in February.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) announced Wednesday that tests it commissioned found glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup weed killer, in nearly 30 General Mills and Quaker brand products made with conventionally-grown oats.
"This was a considerate, thoughtful and well-educated jury that looked at the science to conclude glyphosate causes cancer."
"We need better guidelines for glyphosate use, especially regarding bee exposure, because right now the guidelines assume bees are not harmed by the herbicide."
58 of those communities have adopted more comprehensive policies that prohibit the use of glyphosate.
