‘In the ongoing battle over whether or not Monsanto’s pesticides are a cancer risk to humans, the United Nations has found that glyphosate, an ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer, is not a cancer risk to humans.
Experts with the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) have released a statement claiming that glyphosate is “unlikely to pose a carcinogenic risk to humans” exposed to it through food. The World Health Organization (WHO) co-signed the statement with the FAO. The organizations also found that glyphosate is not likely to be genotoxic, destructive to cell’s genetic material, in humans. The groups met last week and published their conclusions on Monday.’
