New Paper Undercuts EPA Assurance of Glyphosate Safety

new scientific meta-analysis of the cancer-causing potential of glyphosate herbicides published online Sunday, Feb. 10, found that individuals with high exposures to the herbicides have a 41% increased risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The findings by five U.S. scientists run counter to an assessment by the U.S. EPA that found no cancer concerns.

Interestingly, the paper is published in the journal Mutation Research/Reviews in Mutation Research, whose editor in chief is EPA toxicologist David DeMarini. Three of the study authors were members of the EPA's scientific advisory panel on glyphosate who have stated publicly that the EPA failed to follow proper scientific practices in its glyphosate assessment.
