In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) labeled glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup — the world’s most widely used herbicide — a probable carcinogen. In the wake of Roundup’s legal troubles, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), supports the IARC’s determinations.
The ATSDR recently published a scientific review of glyphosate studies. The Michigan-based Fox 47 reports:
“Recently, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), a federal public health agency of the U.S. Department of Health, published a wide-scale, scientific review and assessment of glyphosate studies. The results of the study found cancer risks resulting from pure glyphosate exposure in rodent studies, and mixed glyphosate product exposure in human epidemiologic studies. The report further confirms what Monsanto has adamantly denied – that Roundup products cause cancer.”
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup and has been independently classified as a 2A carcinogen, but it may not be the only thing we have to worry about. Roundup also contains POEA, a detergent derived from animal fat. As of now, POEA has not been tested independently for how it interacts with Glyphosate.
We have to hold Monsanto accountable.
It isn’t just that this product is toxic and dangerous — it’s that Monsanto was deliberately deceptive, even in the face of knowledge about Roundup’s potential hazards. Unsealed documents that came to light during the discovery in one of the thousands of lawsuits the company now faces show that the company may have misled the public on its safety standards and research practices.
