Monsanto may be expanding its operations in the United States, but elsewhere, lawmakers, scientists, activists and ordinary citizens are increasingly questioning (and in many cases banning) the introduction of GM crops, along with the use of the glyphosate herbicide (Monsanto's Roundup).

"State consumer protection ministers in Germany are advocating an EU-wide ban on glyphosate herbicides [glyfosat] in response to the World Health Organization's (WHO) categorization of the chemical as "probably carcinogenic."
