Row in Adeje over council’s weedkiller use

There is an argument going on in Adeje over the use of glyphosate, a broad-spectrum systemic weedkiller. The Coalicion Canaria (CC) group has denounced its use, arguing that it is damaging to the endocrine systems of both humans and animals, not least because it contaminates the borough’s water supply. They say that glyphosate is considered so dangerous to health and environment that it is banned in many European countries along with other very dangerous toxins.
