Glyphosate Warnings and Actions

Warnings about the potential dangers of glyphosate have been issued, including:

A 1985 warning from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

An EPA committee found that Roundup could cause cancer. However, the agency reviewed the committee’s findings in 1991 and rescinded the warning.

A World Health Organization announcement in March 2015.

The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer announced that glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans.

Additionally, in 2017, French President Macron announced his intent to ban glyphosate-based weed killers, including Roundup. The products will be phased out over the next few years.
