The IARC, one of the intergovernmental agencies within the World Health Organization, is widely respected for their research into the causes of cancer. According to the IARC, glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans” (Group 2A).
For glyphosate, there’s a major problem. The link between cancer (of any type) and glyphosate seems to be nonexistent. This is troublesome after reading the IARC report. Much of their research seems to be from:
- Results that show glyphosate is in the blood and urine of farmworkers. This doesn’t show any causal link to anything, unless it’s a massive epidemiological study.
- Some animal studies. And I loathe animal studies to show anything except some mice and rats get force fed glyphosate.
Our review found no consistent pattern of positive associations indicating a causal relationship between total cancer (in adults or children) or any site-specific cancer and exposure to glyphosate.
