The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer’s (IARC) has reiterated its stance on glyphosate’s carcinogenic profile and now calls it ‘definitely genotoxic’ – just to be sure the world understands that Monsanto is causing harm to human beings and animals fed GM food.
One of the co-authors of the IARC report which found glyphosate to be ‘probably carcinogenic,’ professor Christopher Portier says that there is ‘no doubt in his mind’ that Monsanto’s best selling product, Round Up, is genotoxic. This means that it can damage DNA molecules in genes, causing tumors and other serious health issues.
The professor reiterated his stance when speaking recently in London at a scientific briefing on glyphosate in Westminster, organized by the Soil Association.
