Sri Lanka moves forward to ban glyphosate after a recent study linked the herbicide to Fatal Chronic Kidney Disease (CKDu). This has been affecting the health of farmers in tea growing areas where glyphosate is heavily used.

CKDu is the second leading cause of death among males in poor regions of Sri Lanka. A new study by the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health showed the compound as toxic condition. One of the results of this study concluded that glyphosate becomes notably harmful when mixed with ‘hard’ water or heavy metals like arsenic or cadmium.

A certain solution is Organic Weed Control with thermal steam, it can be used for farming and urban areas.  Making the steps to minimise the harm on our environments soil, water and protecting the health of citizens should be every governments priority.
