FINLAND, Minn.—A new report published today in the journal Lancet Oncology says Monsanto’s Roundup is a “probable carcinogen.”
The report originated from the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the France-based cancer research arm of the World Health Organization (WHO).
The Organic Consumers Association issued the following statement by Ronnie Cummins, international director.
“This latest finding, which links Monsanto’s Roundup to non-Hodgkins 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.
Monsanto has already rushed to attack this science, as they have attacked every credible independent scientist in the past. At what point will U.S. regulators start believing the scientists, instead of pandering to Monsanto?"
