There is finally a consensus among non-Monsanto-bribed scientists that Roundup is a powerful endocrine disrupting chemical that is very bad for the health of everyone at all ages. This report wants to reclassify glyphosate as "probably carcinogenic to humans".
There are many studies found throughout this blog how glyphosate is found in foods, and the problems it causes, I won't repeat them here. Industry has been lobbying to avoid labeling any GMO foods (which includes food containing glyphosate), spending millions of dollars. If glyphosate was so safe, why all the lobbying? Wouldn't the product safety and studies speak for themselves?
Monsanto still says Roundup is not a carcinogen. That's odd, because before they used to say it's safe on all fronts. Now they say it's not safe, but it's not a carcinogen. See also coverups from asbestos industry, lead industry, cigarette industry, Vioxx, thalidomide, DES, BPA, fracking, adulterated food in the US and UK, aspartame, the list goes on including the denial that marijuana products can actually help. The fact that the WHO declared Roundup a "possible carcinogen", instead of a "probable carcinogen" is more politics than science.
