Roundup a 'probable carcinogen,' WHO report says
A report published Friday in the journal The Lancet Oncology says glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, is a "probable carcinogen."
The report is from the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the France-based cancer research arm of the World Health Organization.
"This latest finding, which links Monsanto's Roundup to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and lung cancer is not the first to make these links, but it is one of the strongest indictments of glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup," said Ronnie Cummins, international director for the Organic Consumers Association.
... The Department of Agriculture does not test food for glyphosate residues, but in 2013, the Environmental Protection Agency raised the allowed limits of glyphosate residues on fruits and vegetables.
