Full Report on Glyphosate (Main Ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup) and Cancer Released by World Health Organization

Monsanto has long insisted that its Roundup product, the best-selling herbicide sprayed gratitously on farmland across the country, is safe.

But a bombshell report earlier this year linked it to cancer, causing a massive backlash against the St. Louis-based agrochemical giant.

Now, the report is being published in full by the World Health Organization.

The report, which was researched and written by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, can be view in a PDF form online by clicking on this link.

As noted in this article by the website Sustainable Pulse, the herbicide is used on 80% of GM crops worldwide, which engineered to be sprayed en masse with the chemical.

A total of 17 experts from 11 countries on cancer were able to reach the conclusion that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. Monsanto slammed the report and disagreed with its findings.

In response several bans have been discussed; Sri Lanka actually did ban the herbicide while supermarkets in Europe have been shelving the products as well.
