Vijayawada: An India-born Canadian citizen, Mr Tony Mitra, has made the Canadian government test food samples for glyphosate, a dangerous herbicide. It took years of effort for Mr Mitra, a retired marine engineer and has turned food security activist, before the Canadian government agreed.
The testing revealed that pulses that are imported to India from Canada and Australia are highly toxic. “It took almost five years to make the Canada government test food items and agri products imported from outside for glyphosate.”
