Despite Whining By Monsanto, Roundup DOES Cause Cancer … and Many Other Diseases
Posted on November 7, 2015 by WashingtonsBlog
The World Health Organization is right when it announced recently that Roundup weedkiller – also known as “glyphosate” – probably causes cancer.
In response, Monsanto has been whining that the WHO is wrong.
But Reuters notes:
“There are a number of independent, published manuscripts that clearly indicate that glyphosate … can promote cancer and tumor growth,” said Dave Schubert, head of the cellular neurobiology laboratory at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California. “It should be banned.”
The Salk Institute is one of the world’s top neuroscience facilities:
In 2004, the Times Higher Education Supplement ranked Salk as the world’s top biomedicine research institute, and in 2009 it was ranked number one globally by ScienceWatch in the neuroscience and behavior areas.
