EPA reaffirms finding that glyphosate does not cause cancer
Des Moines Register | Donnelle Eller
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Tuesday reaffirmed its finding that glyphosate, the world’s most popular herbicide, is not a cancer risk to users.
“There’s no evidence that glyphosate causes cancer,” said Alexandra Dunn, an EPA assistant administrator for chemical safety and pollution prevention. “There’s no risk to public health from the application of glyphosate.”
It’s the next step in the EPA’s process to re-register the herbicide, popular with farmers growing food and with families and businesses killing weeds.
The agency said its scientific findings on human health risk are consistent with the reviews by several other countries and federal agencies.
