Oh for crying out loud.

Glyphosate And Cancer

Monsanto glyphosate causes cancer so do apples

Glyphosate causes cancer IARC lacked evidence

Unfortunately, when the IARC made its decision two years ago, there was one major problem. According to an extensive article by Kate Kelland in Reuters, one of the members of the IARC’s study group looking at glyphosate knew of recently published data that showed no link between the weed killer and cancer. Aaron Blair, an epidemiologist from the US National Cancer Institute, never mentioned this new data to the study group examining whether glyphosate causes cancer. So the IARC made its decision without all of the available evidence.


IARC glyphosate bombshell: Scientist who lead review of herbicide withheld data showing no cancer link

Previously unreported court documents reviewed by Reuters from an ongoing U.S. legal case against Monsanto show that Blair knew the unpublished research found no evidence of a link between glyphosate and cancer. In a sworn deposition given in March [2017] in connection with the case, Blair also said the data would have altered IARC’s analysis. He said it would have made it less likely that glyphosate would meet the agency’s criteria for being classed as “probably carcinogenic.”

But IARC, a semi-autonomous part of the World Health Organization, never got to consider the data….


Since the International Agency for Research on Cancer is key to the reason to push for this bogus listing, the last two links are probably the most relevant.

I could go on. There is plenty out there.

Yup. 14 years is apparently my limit for your bullshit. I find it knee-slappingly funny that you're complaining about me being too quick with the warnings. 14 years.

Will do. No sweat.

Perhaps you would like to enlighten us with some specifics.
