Following recent reports where a US court handed an unprecedented 2 billion Dollars in damages to a couple who say their cancer was caused by glyphosate, the effect of the chemical is once again debated across the world.

The WHO in the year 2015 confirmed that glyphosate was indeed cancerous and took steps to reduce its usage worldwide.

Sri Lanka too banned the use of glyphosate but in June last year permission was granted to use it for Tea and Rubber cultivations only.

Professor Channa Jayasumana, who has carried out extensive research in to the effects of glyphosate said that the authorities should take steps to ban it completely.
