Thirty years ago, an Environmental Protection Agency committee determined that the popular weed killer Roundup might cause cancer. Six years later, in 1991, the agency reversed itself after re-evaluating the mouse study that had been the basis for the original conclusion.
Now the issue is back again, in an even bigger way. An agency of the World Health Organization has declared that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, “probably” causes cancer in people. One piece of evidence the agency cites is that same mouse study.
Officials at the agency, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, said they had no agenda other than to inform the World Health Organization. They said the conclusion was based on studies of people, laboratory animals and cells.
“All three lines of evidence sort of said the same thing, which is we ought to be concerned about this,” said Aaron Blair, a retired epidemiologist from the National Cancer Institute who was chairman of the group of 17 reviewers from around the world; agreement on the classification was unanimous.

Blah blah I asked about the sun's rays not Monsanto or whose &!××€ you gobbled try being a farmer and not using a herbicide lol good luck .I limit the use of chemicals I have been walking my beans for days with a garden hoe removing noxious weeds so I can avoid a second application of herbicide. But watch out baby grasshoppers are everywhere too well have to use insecticide or well you won't be doing it at all . make the markets bear what the grain is worth and what it cost to produce and then it would be possible to explore a Monsanto free world but until then..
