NOT GOOD: Last month, Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) volunteered to take a urine test to see if glyphosate - the cancer-linked weedkiller - is in their system. 48 MEPs from 13 different European Union countries participated in the test, and now the results are in. On average, the MEPs had 1.7 micrograms/liter of glyphosate in their urine, 17 times higher than the European drinking water norm (0.1 microgram/litre). This means that everyone tested was way above the limit for residues of pesticides in drinking water.

This does not bode well for the health of the world.

With our democracy on the line and our health and environmental standards up for negotiation -- it couldn’t be more vital for our MEPs to know exactly what they’ll have to decide on.
EU Commissioners say they're giving access to MEPs, but we know it's just not true. Share this infographic to make sure people all over Europe understand just how undemocratic this trade deal is.
