Richard Gupton of the Agricultural Retailers Association is asking for public comments to be sent to the EPA about the importance of glyphosate.

 

He reports that the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released for public comment the draft human health and ecological risk assessments for glyphosate, one of the most widely used pesticides in the United States. EPA's risk assessment concludes that gylphosate is NOT likely to be carcinogenic to humans.  The agency found no other meaningful risks to human health when the product is used according to the pesticide label.  These scientific findings are consistent with conclusions of science reviews by a number of other countries as well as the 2017 National Institutes of Health Agricultural Health Survey.

 

Not so fast says Carey Gillam who has dedicated her career to unraveling the complicated issue surrounding the health ramifications of glyphosate.
