You are basing your information on a article written by a teacher with the Bachelor of Arts degree in history from a Texas state U?? She probably got paid $5 for it, if that much.

A real science. Wonder, how many others used this article as a “research”?

Our own Department Of Health sounds concerned. The World Health Organization calls it potentially carcinogenic.
The use of glyphosate increased 100 fold in the last 10 years as the weeds are becoming resistant to it - that is why we are making GMO agricultural products and a glyphosate is found in our drinking water as well as in all kind of agricultural products
“associated with liver, kidney pancreatic, skin cancers”, “ alters the availability of micronutrients”, “endocrine disruptor”, “acts as antibiotic”, etc, etc

You are helping to spread the misinformation.
The EPA is in a pocket of industry’s lobbyists- the ruling party notwithstanding

the EPA has never found glyphosate to be carcinogenic when used in accordance with label instructions. trump has nothing to do with it.

That's it in a nutshell. It all comes down to genetics.

I had an aunt and uncle who started smoking around age 13 and smoked up until the day they died of natural causes, which was 85 and 87 years respectively. He probably would have lived longer, but he was so lonely without his wife (they'd been married for nearly 70 years).

I'm guessing most of these verdicts will be reversed on appeal.
