“The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has announced that glyphosate (a chemical weedkiller) is unlikely to cause cancer. This is despite findings earlier this year, from the World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research into Cancer (IARC) that glyphosate is ‘probably carcinogenic’.”
Glyphosate is typically mixed with other chemicals becoming, in the process, much more toxic (e.g. Roundup).
The European Commission will have consideration of these findings in deciding whether or not to retain the glyphosate on the European Union’s list of approved active substances.
