Study: Glyphosate Unlikely to Pose Cancer Risk

October 4, 2016 02:44 PM

Monsanto is continuing to back the safety of glyphosate.

The company released a newly-commissioned study from 15 scientists in the journal of Critical Reviews in Toxicology.

In the study, researchers say glyphosate, or Roundup, is unlikely to pose a cancer risk to humans.

The report is a response to the World Health Organization’s international agency for research on cancer, claiming the herbicide likely causes cancer in humans.

The report follows fresh analysis from the EPA, also showing glyphosate is safe.

Later this month, an EPA scientific advisory panel will meet do discuss the findings of the study.
