Glyphosate Found « Not Carcinogenic »

 

 

The European Chemicals Agency ( ECHA ), considered the « last word » on whether glyphosate causes cancer has reviewed the research and concluded that the herbicide is NOT CARCINOGENIC. 

 

Glyphosate the key ingredient in the world’s most popular weed control product, Roundup. 

 

ECHA stated   

 

The available scientific evidence did not meet the criteria to classify glyphosate as a carcinogen, as a mutagen or as toxic for reproduction. 

 

The decision is in accord with findings from the European Food Safety Authority [ EFSA ], US Environmental Protection Agency [ US EPA ], German Risk Association, Health Canada, and every known regulatory body that has reviewed the data. 

 

Statements about ECHA’s decision have come in from various groups.

 

According to Mr Tim Bowmer, the Chairman of the European Chemicals Agency’s ( ECHA ) Risk Assessment Committee ( RAC )   

 

This conclusion was based both on the human evidence and the weight of the evidence of all the animal studies reviewed. 

 

According to Mr Graeme Taylor, of the European Crop Protection Agency   

 

Science prevailed.

 

Glyphosate is NOT CARCINOGENIC. 

 

We expect the European commission to move swiftly with the registration process for the substance in the EU and grant a 15-year approval.

 

The ECHA announcement likely means glyphosate will be permitted for European Union use for at least the next 15 years, although a final decision will likely not come before the end of 2017.

The Serious Flaws In The IARC Hazard Study

 

 

Glyphosate has been the subject of a relicensing battle which has split governments, regulators, and scientists, with one arm of the World Health Organization, IARC, saying in a « hazard assessment » that the herbicide could post a cancer risk to workers, while other WHO groups, including WHO itself, and national regulatory agencies around the world, concluding it poses NO HARM TO WORKERS OR TO OUR FOOD SUPPLY. 

 

The Campaign for Accuracy in Public Health Research ( CAPHR ) issued the following statement concerning International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC )   

 

ECHA’s confirmation that glyphosate is NOT A CARCINOGEN underscores the serious flaws in IARC’s evaluation of carcinogens.

 

IARC consistently fails to base its reviews on a full consideration of the available scientific evidence, which explains why regulatory bodies around the globe disagree with its determination that glyphosate is a « probable human carcinogen ».  [  ?!?!  ]

 

Until IARC reforms its UNSCIENTIFIC monograph process, its evaluations will continue to be out-of-step with the rest of the public health and regulatory community.

Next Steps

 

 

The European Chemicals Agency ( ECHA ) said it reviewed the same scientific reports that IARC did, but also expanded its range of studies. 

 

In a video accompanying the announcement, the agency’s chief scientific officer, Mr Ari Karjalainen, explained that while methodology was essentially identical to IARC’s, his agency’s criteria for determining cancer risk was different. 

 

The ECHA determination means the European Union is more likely to fully extend the license for use of glyphosate in member nations    although there are still likely to be political battles ahead. 

 

Whether this will have an impact outside of Europe remains to be seen. 

 

Certainly, the IARC hazard study had an impact. 

 

In California, for example, the state is considering labeling glyphosate as a carcinogen under its Proposition 65 law. 

 

ECHA did find two issues with glyphosate, which don’t directly impact its use as an agricultural herbicide. 

 

It found that direct exposure could cause serious eye damage, as well as long-term harm to aquatic environments. 

 

These were issues already known to regulators, users and manufacturers ( which now extend beyond Monsanto now that the chemical’s patent has expired ).

 

Now, the European Union will determine whether or not to approve use of glyphosate for 15 years, based on rulings from several agencies, but mainly upon the decision by the European Chemicals Agency ( ECHA ).

Why The Controversy ?!?!

 

 

Glyphosate has emerged as a highly-discussed agricultural chemical. 

 

Opponents of genetic modifications [ GM ] of crops often use glyphosate as a symbol of the potential harm    including cancer.

 

It is falsely-alleged that cancer is caused by the use with « Roundup Ready » corn, soybeans and cotton, which have been designed to resist exposure to glyphosate. 

 

On the other hand, farmers swear by its effectiveness and scientists have proven its overall safety.

 

The regulation of glyphosate had been in a storm over the past two years. 

 

The situation became particularly volatile in 2015 after the International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC )    the hazard assessment arm of the World Health Organization    issued a report declaring glyphosate a « Group 2A : probably carcinogenic » substance. 

 

The IARC hazard study was heavily criticized by scientists and regulators, including those at the European Food Safety Agency ( EFSA ), which at one time accused IARC of conducting « Facebook science ».

 

The bogus review was challenged by a number of other safety regulators, including 

 

   European Food Safety Authority [ EFSA ]

 

   Germany’s Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

 

   Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency [ PMRA ]

 

   New Zealand’s Environmental Protection Authority

 

   World Health Organization [ WHO ]

 

They all rejected IARC’s methodology and conclusions, declaring that glyphosate was NOT A CARCINOGEN. 

 

The decision, based on a bogus review of scientific evidence for a hazard ( as opposed to an environmental risk ), was met with cheers from Moms Against Monsanto and Friends of the Earth, both anti-GMO, glyphosate-hating & environmental-terrorist organizations. 

 

Still, the IARC hazard study persuaded the European Union to only extend the license to use the herbicide in the EU for 18 months, instead of a standard six years. 

 

In early 2016, European Health Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis declared that « the last word ( on glyphosate’s carcinogenicity ) belongs to the ECHA ».

 

That last word has now been spoken.

Greenpeace EU-Division’s Reaction

 

 

Even before the decision, ECHA came under attack from anti-GMO and anti-chemical activists. Greenpeace accused it of conflicts of interests, claiming several of its members had either undertaken consultancy work for chemical firms or worked for institutes that had. 

 

Following the report’s release by the European Chemicals Agency ( ECHA ), Greenpeace EU-Division’s anti-pesticide operative Franziska Achterberg said   

 

ECHA has gone to great lengths to sweep all evidence that glyphosate can cause cancer under the carpet. 

 

The data vastly exceeds what’s legally necessary for the EU to ban glyphosate, but ECHA has looked the other way. 

 

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION    Anti-Pesticide & Environmental-Terrorist Organizations like Greenpeace    what are they for ?!?!  They serve NO useful or beneficial purpose to society, wasting tax-exempt money in order to operate as mere government opponents.  Greenpeace DOES NOT deserve ANY charity tax-exempt statuses.  They exist for one reason and one only    and that is to make enviro-profit.  So far, Greenpeace has LOST ITS CHARITY STATUS in several jurisdictions, including Canada, and has been told to STAY OUT OF COUNTRIES, like India.   http://tinyurl.com/pn9nh45   http://tinyurl.com/okcvrl3   http://wp.me/p1jq40-8MM   http://wp.me/p1jq40-8xY   http://tinyurl.com/my8s4ut

Organic Industry’s Reaction

 

 

The website Sustainable Pulse, funded by organic industry supporters who also maintain websites for controversial anti-GMO lunatic-activist scientists including Gilles-Éric Séralini, blasted the decision   

 

Following in the footsteps of the European Food Safety Authority ( EFSA ), the European Chemicals Agency ( ECHA ) has dismissed scientific evidence showing that the controversial weed-killer glyphosate could cause cancer. 

 

The ECHA assessment, released [ March 15th, 2017 ], could pave the way for a new 15-year EU licence for the world’s most heavily used weed-killer, which the World Health Organisation’s cancer research agency ( IARC ) has classified as a « probable » cause of cancer.  [  ?!?!  ]

 

To reach its conclusion, ECHA rejected glaring scientific evidence of cancers in laboratory animals, ignored warnings by more than 90 independent scientists, and relied on unpublished studies commissioned by glyphosate producers.  [  ?!?!  ]

GLYPHOSATESAFETY — NOT CLASSIFIED AS A CARCINOGEN — EUROPEAN CHEMICALS AGENCY’S ( ECHA ) COMMITTEE FOR RISK ASSESSMENT ( RAC ) ( Report )

 

ECHA’s Committee for Risk Assessment ( RAC ) agrees to maintain the current harmonized classification of glyphosate as a substance causing serious eye damage and being toxic to aquatic life with long-lasting effects. RAC concluded that the available scientific evidence did not meet the criteria to classify glyphosate as a carcinogen, as a mutagen or as toxic for reproduction.  The classification is based solely on the hazardous properties of the substance.

WE SPEAK THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT GLYPHOSATE FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE !

 

We are the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that conspire to destroy the Green space and other industries ( NORAHG ).  As a non-profit and independent organization, we are environmentalists who are dedicated to reporting about Truth-Challenged Pesticide-Hating Fanatics who conspire to destroy businesses that are dependent on their use of conventional pest control products.  We also report on the work of Respected and Highly-Rated Experts who promote Environmental Realism and Pesticide Truths.   http://wp.me/p1jq40-8DV  

 

NORAHG is the sworn enemy of lying, pompous, smug, uneducated, & pesticide-hating enviro-fanatics.  Overwhelming scientific evidence clearly demonstrates that pest control products are scientifically-safe, and will not cause harm to children, adults, animals, or the environment.   http://wp.me/p1jq40-7HR   http://wp.me/P1jq40-2ha   http://wp.me/p1jq40-6Q6   http://wp.me/p1jq40-5ni  

 

Not surprisingly, enviro-fanatics have demonstrated that they are incapable of processing overwhelming scientific evidence.  Should we trust these fanatics, who conveniently ignore scientific evidence, and attempt to impose their politicized-doctrines and twisted life-style choices against our society ?!?! 

 

NORAHG was the brainchild of Mr William H Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.  We Dare To Defy The Pesticide-Hating Fanatics By Exploring The Whole Truth From An Independent Perspective On The Pesticide Truths Web-Site      http://pesticidetruths.com/
