Sweden Imports Banned Pesticides

Swedish Radio News reveals that high levels of pesticides banned in many countries are used to produce soya-based animal fodder in Brazil sold to Sweden and other countries to feed chickens, pigs, cows and other livestock.

The pesticides are blamed for causing serious medical problems for thousands of farm workers in Brazil.


Although the pesticides have been banned in Sweden for 30 years and the importers here area aware of their presence, the report claims that the importers choose to ignore the dangers in order to keep the prices low.

The report maintains that Brazil has tripled the use of pesticides in soya bean production – becoming a notorious world leader.
