Glyphosate: Should the EU re-authorise the weedkiller chemical?

The EU is about to decide whether to re-license glyphosate for 10 years. The chemical is found in pesticides and has been linked to cancer, but it was controversially declared safe for public use by the European Chemicals Agency. We host Green MEP Margrete Auken from Denmark and Bernhard Url, executive director of the European Food Safety Authority. EFSA has given a positive recommendation for glyphosate.

Auken charges: "Some of our agencies, including EFSA, think that taking care of industry secrecy is more important than public access". Url counters: "At EFSA, we love transparency. It's one of our core values".
