Japan - a nation that prides itself of food safety and decent genuine care for the population, has naively allowed it's main agricultural business outlet for the farming industry "Japan Agriculture, (JA)" and most of the large DIY home improvement companies to promote this toxic chemical!

As the links listed below, 'Roundup poses a real health threat and is linked to Cancer, Autism and Other Chronic Diseases:
 
  • DNA damage27 
  •  Premature births and miscarriages28,29 
  •  Birth defects including neural tube defects and anencephaly (absence of a large part of the brain and skull)32,33 
  •  Multiple myeloma, a type of cancer34 
  •  Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer35,36,37 
  •  Disruption of neurobehavioral development in children of pesticide applicators – in particular, attention-deficit disorder (ADD) and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).38
  •  Australia; Mass bird deaths near Dubbo caused by pesticide, tests confirm - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-03-11/pesticide-caused-mass-bird-deaths-near-dubbo/5312092
Shame on the Japanese Government for not doing simple checks on how bad this chemical is!
