UPDATE On Glyphosate Herbicide – US EPA Reaffirms No Risk To Public Health – Glyphosate Does Not Cause Cancer – 2019 04 30

 

 

 

 

Summary  –  Background Information

 

Glyphosate No Risk

Glyphosate Is Vindicated & Continues To
Be Registered As A Successful & Safe Product

The US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ) has evaluated the herbicide glyphosate, and has reaffirmed that there is NO RISK to public health when used properly. 

According to scientific up-to-date knowledge, there is NO RISK to human health from current uses of glyphosate. 

There is NO RISK to children or adults from currently registered uses. 

There is NO indication that children are more sensitive to glyphosate. 

Furthermore, glyphosate is NOT a carcinogen. 

The US EPA and other national regulatory agencies world-wide have vindicated glyphosate  ―  these agencies include those within the European Union, the United Nations, and Canada. 

These agencies has found that glyphosate is NO RISK of concern to human health or the environment when used according to label directions. 

Not surprisingly, glyphosate-hating fanatжcs have demonstrated that they are incapable of processing the overwhelming scientific evidence proving that glyphosate is NO RISK.

These fanatжcs conspire to mindlessly destroy businesses, such as those in agriculture, that are dependent on the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products like glyphosate. 

Up-to-date knowledge about glyphosate illuminates the world, and invalidates glyphosate-hating fanatжcs. 

The industry must defend glyphosate, whatever the cost may be.

US EPA Takes Next Step In Review Process For Herbicide Glyphosate, Reaffirms No Risk To Public Health

 

 

Glyphosate Poses No Risk To Public Health

 

Glyphosate Does Not Cause Cancer

 

 

The US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ) has taken an important step in the agency’s review of glyphosate. 

 

As part of this action, EPA continues to find that    

 

  Glyphosate poses NO risks to public health when used in accordance with its current label. 

 

   Glyphosate is NOT a carcinogen. 

 

The US EPA’s scientific findings on human health risk have been consistent with the conclusions of science reviews by many other countries and other federal agencies. 

 

While the agency did not identify public health risks in the 2017 human health risk assessment, the 2017 ecological assessment did identify ecological risks. 

 

To address these risks, US EPA has proposed management measures to help farmers target pesticide sprays on the intended pest, protect pollinators, and reduce the problem of weeds becoming resistant to glyphosate.

 

According to Mr Andrew Wheeler, US EPA Administrator   

 

EPA has found NO risks to public health from the current registered uses of glyphosate. 

 

Today’s proposed action includes new management measures that will help farmers use glyphosate in the most effective and efficient way possible, including pollinator protections. 

 

We look forward to input from farmers and other stakeholders to ensure that the draft management measures are workable, realistic, and effective. 

 

According to Mr Sonny Perdue, US EPA Secretary of Agriculture   

 

If we are going to feed 10 billion people by 2050, we are going to need all the tools at our disposal, which includes the use the glyphosate. 

 

USDA applauds EPA’s proposed registration decision as it is science-based and consistent with the findings of other regulatory authorities that glyphosate DOES NOT pose a carcinogenic hazard to humans. 

 

Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in US agriculture and has been studied for decades.  

 

Glyphosate is used on more than 100 food crops, including glyphosate-resistant corn, soybean, cotton, canola, and sugar beet. 

 

Non-agricultural uses include residential areas, aquatic areas, forests, rights-of-way, ornamentals and turf.

After evaluating numerous studies from a variety of sources, the Agency found NO indication that children are more sensitive to glyphosate from in utero or post-natal exposure. 

 

As part of the human health risk assessment, the Agency evaluated all populations, including infants, children and women of child-bearing age, and found NO risks of concern from ingesting food with glyphosate residues. 

 

US EPA also found NO risks of concern for children entering or playing on residential areas treated with glyphosate.

UPDATE    Environmental Protection Agency

 

Cancer

 

 

There Is No Evidence That
Glyphosate Causes Cancer

 

 

The Agency concluded that glyphosate is NOT likely to be carcinogenic to humans. 

 

US EPA considered a significantly more extensive and relevant data-set than the International Agency on the Research for Cancer ( IARC ). 

 

[ See below for Background Information on The IARC Glyphosate-Gate. ] 

 

US EPA’s data-base includes studies submitted to support registration of glyphosate and studies US EPA identified in the open literature.

Endocrine Disruption

 

 

There Is No Indication That
Glyphosate Is An Endocrine Disruptor

 

 

Glyphosate has undergone Tier I screening under US EPA’s Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program. 

 

Based on all available information, US EPA concluded, using a weight-of-evidence approach, that the existing data DO NOT indicate that glyphosate has the potential to interact with the estrogen, androgen or thyroid signaling pathways. 

 

The screening program DID NOT indicate the need for additional testing for glyphosate.

Background Information

 

The IARC Glyphosate-Gate

 

 

International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) is an anti-glyphosate & environmental-terrжrist organization.

IARC, the ONLY major science body to insist that glyphosate causes cancer [ ?!?! ], has been caught doctoring documents and manipulating evidence to support its conclusion.

IARC conducts bad science.

Occasionally, bad science is promoted by lunatжcs who receive pay-offs and practice scientific fraud.

The motivation seems to be financial.

A key IARC lunatжc-advisor who lobbied against glyphosate has, in essence, received a pay-off of 160,000 dollars.

He was bribed by lawyers who stand to profit from potential lawsuits involving glyphosate.

This is a truly gigantic scandal that has ( predictably ) received scant press coverage.

IARC has severely and perhaps irreparably damaged the reputation of its parent, the World Health Organization ( WHO ).

Anti-glyphosate lunatжcs are crooks and lying sacks of crжp !

UPDATE    Environmental Protection Agency

 

Food Safety

 

 

Residues of glyphosate on any food or feed item are safe for consumers if they comply with the established tolerances. 

 

Before allowing the use of a pesticide on food crops, US EPA sets a tolerance or limit on how much pesticide residue can legally remain on food and feed products, or commodities. 

 

If residues are found above the established tolerance level, the commodity will be subject to seizure by the government. 

 

The presence of a detectable pesticide residue DOES NOT mean the residue is at an unsafe level. 

 

Due to its widespread use, trace amounts of glyphosate residues may be found in various fresh fruits, vegetables, cereals, and other food and beverage commodities. 

 

However, these trace amounts are NOT of concern for the consumer. 

 

US EPA conducted a highly conservative dietary risk assessment for glyphosate that evaluated all populations, including infants, children, and women of child-bearing age. 

 

US EPA assumed that 100 per cent of all registered crops were treated with glyphosate, that residues were at the tolerance level for each crop, and that residues in drinking water were from direct application of glyphosate to water. 

 

These assumptions would lead to much higher estimated levels of exposure than would be expected to occur with actual use. 

 

The resulting conservative estimates of dietary exposure were NOT of concern.

UPDATE    Environmental Protection Agency

 

Ecological Risk

 

 

US EPA’s draft ECOLOGICAL RISK ASSESSMENT found   

 

  Potential risks to plants ( aquatic and terrestrial ); 

 

  Potential risks to birds from acute or short-term exposure and to mammals from chronic or long-term exposure; 

 

  Glyphosate is NOT expected to adversely impact aquatic animals but does have an effect on aquatic plants; and 

 

  Glyphosate is of low toxicity to honeybees. 

 

The potential risks to birds, mammals, and non-target terrestrial and aquatic plants are from exposure to spray drift. 

 

Based on its re-evaluation of glyphosate, US EPA is proposing to require spray drift management labeling to reduce off-target spray drift and protect non-target plants and wildlife.

Glyphosate

 

 

Glyphosate is a widely used herbicide that controls broadleaf weeds and grasses. 

 

It has been registered as a pesticide in the US since 1974. 

 

Since glyphosate’s first registration, US EPA has reviewed and reassessed its safety and uses, including undergoing registration review, a program that re-evaluates each registered pesticide on a 15-year cycle. 

 

In April 2019, US EPA released the Glyphosate Proposed Interim Decision for public comment. 

 

As part of this action, US EPA continues to find that there are NO risks to public health when glyphosate is used in accordance with its current label and that glyphosate is NOT a carcinogen. 

 

US EPA is proposing management measures to help farmers target pesticide sprays on intended pests, protect pollinators, and reduce the problem of weeds becoming resistant to glyphosate.

Basic Information On Uses

 

 

Glyphosate targets a broad range of weeds and is important in the production of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and glyphosate-resistant field crops such as corn and soybean. 

 

It is effective at managing invasive and noxious weeds. 

 

In addition, glyphosate breaks down in the environment, can be used for no-till and low-till farming which can reduce soil erosion, and is useful for integrated pest management. 

 

Products containing glyphosate are sold in various formulations, including as liquid concentrate, solid, and ready-to-use liquid. 

 

Glyphosate is used in products such as Roundup to control weeds in both agricultural and non-agricultural settings. 

 

Glyphosate can be applied in agricultural, residential and commercial settings using a wide range of application methods, including aerial sprays, ground broadcast sprayers of various types, shielded and hooded sprayers, wiper applicators, sponge bars, injection systems, and controlled droplet applicators. 

 

Agricultural uses include corn, cotton, canola, soybean, sugar beet, alfalfa, berry crops, brassica vegetables, bulb vegetables, fruiting vegetables, leafy vegetables, legume vegetables, cucurbit vegetables, root tuber vegetables, cereal grains, grain sorghum, citrus crops, fallow, herbs and spices, orchards, tropical and subtropical fruits, stone fruits, pome fruits, nuts, vine crops, oil-seed crops, and sugarcane. 

 

Non-agricultural uses include conservation land, pastures, rangeland, aquatic areas, forests, turfgrass, residential areas, non-food tree crops ( e.g., pine, poplar, Christmas trees ), rights-of-way, commercial areas, paved areas, spot treatments, ornamentals, parks, and wildlife management areas.

EPA Actions & Regulatory History

 

 

Glyphosate was first registered in 1974. 

 

US EPA initiated registration review for glyphosate in 2009. 

 

In 2010, the Agency required the pesticide registrants to conduct additional studies to support updated human health and ecological risk assessments. 

 

US EPA collaborated with Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency to share information for risk assessment. 

 

US EPA required a substantial amount of data to be collected and submitted for pesticide registration and registration review, including studies that address product chemistry, product performance, hazard to humans and domestic animals, hazard to non-target plants and wildlife, post-application exposure, applicator exposure, pesticide spray drifts, environmental fate, and residue chemistry.

What Are Some Signs & Symptoms From A Brief Exposure To Glyphosate ?

 

 

Pure glyphosate is low in toxicity, but products usually contain other ingredients that help the glyphosate get into the plants. 

 

The other ingredients in the product can make the product more toxic. Products containing glyphosate may cause eye or skin irritation. 

 

People who breathed in spray mist from products containing glyphosate felt irritation in their nose and throat. 

 

Swallowing products with glyphosate can cause increased saliva, burns in the mouth and throat, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. 

 

Fatalities have been reported in cases of intentional ingestion.

 

Pets may be at risk if they touch or eat plants that are still wet with spray from products containing glyphosate. 

 

Animals exposed to products with glyphosate may drool, vomit, have diarrhea, lose their appetite, or seem sleepy.

What Happens To Glyphosate When It Enters The Body ?

 

 

In humans, glyphosate DOES NOT easily pass through the skin. 

 

Glyphosate that is absorbed or ingested will pass through the body relatively quickly. 

 

The vast majority of glyphosate leaves the body in urine and feces without being changed into another chemical.

Is Glyphosate Likely To Contribute To The Development Of Cancer ?

 

 

Animal and human studies were evaluated by regulatory agencies in the USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, and the European Union, as well as the Joint Meeting on Pesticide Residues of the United Nations and World Health Organization ( WHO ). 

 

These agencies looked at cancer rates in humans and studies where laboratory animals were fed high doses of glyphosate. 

 

Based on these studies, they determined that glyphosate is NOT likely to be carcinogenic. 

 

However, a committee of scientists working for the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the WHO evaluated fewer studies and reported that glyphosate is probably carcinogenic. 

 

 

 

―――――――――――――――――――――

 

 

 

UPDATE    Oregon State University

 

Has Anyone Studied Non-Cancer Effects From Long-Term Exposure To Glyphosate ?

 

 

Long-term feeding studies in animals were assessed by the US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ) and other regulatory authorities. 

 

Based on these evaluations, they found there is NO evidence glyphosate is toxic to the nervous or immune systems. 

 

They also found it is NOT a developmental or reproductive toxin.

Are Children More Sensitive To Glyphosate Than Adults ?

 

 

As required by the Food Quality Protection Act, the US EPA has determined that children are NOT more sensitive to glyphosate as compared to the general population.

 

 

 

―――――――――――――――――――――

 

 

 

UPDATE    Oregon State University

 

What Happens To Glyphosate In The Environment ?

 

 

Glyphosate binds tightly to soil. 

 

It can persist in soil for up to 6 months depending on the climate and the type of soil it is in. 

 

Glyphosate is broken down by bacteria in the soil. 

 

Glyphosate is NOT likely to get into ground-water because it binds tightly to soil. 

 

In one study, half the glyphosate in dead leaves broke down in 8 or 9 days. 

 

Another study found that some glyphosate was taken up by carrots and lettuce after the soil was treated with it. 

 

 

 

―――――――――――――――――――――

 

 

 

UPDATE    Oregon State University

 

Can Glyphosate Affect Birds, Fish, Or Other Wildlife ?

 

 

Pure glyphosate is low in toxicity to fish and wildlife, but some products containing glyphosate may be toxic because of the other ingredients in them. 

 

Glyphosate may affect fish and wildlife indirectly because killing the plants alters the animals’ habitat. 

 

 

 

―――――――――――――――――――――

 

 

 

UPDATE    Oregon State University

 

How Might I Be Exposed To Glyphosate ?

 

 

You can be exposed to glyphosate if you get it on your skin, in your eyes, or breathe it in when you are using it. 

 

You might swallow some glyphosate if you eat or smoke after applying it without washing your hands first. 

 

You may also be exposed if you touch plants that are still wet with spray. 

 

Glyphosate is NOT likely to vaporize after it is sprayed. 

 

 

 

―――――――――――――――――――――

 

 

 

UPDATE    Oregon State University

 

How Does Glyphosate Work ?

 

 

Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide, meaning it will kill most plants. 

 

It prevents the plants from making certain proteins that are needed for plant growth. 

 

Glyphosate stops a specific enzyme pathway, the shikimic acid pathway. 

 

The shikimic acid pathway is necessary for plants and some micro-organisms.

UPDATE    Oregon State University

 

What Is Glyphosate ?

 

 

Glyphosate is an herbicide. 

 

It is applied to the leaves of plants to kill both broadleaf plants and grasses. 

 

The sodium salt form of glyphosate is used to regulate plant growth and ripen specific crops.

 

Glyphosate was first registered for use in the US in 1974. 

 

Glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicides in the United States. 

 

People apply it in agriculture and forestry, on lawns and gardens, and for weeds in industrial areas. 

 

Some products containing glyphosate control aquatic plants.

Background Information

 

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 fanatжcs ( HUJE ) who conspire to destroy businesses that are dependent on the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products like glyphosate.  We also report on the work of several highly-rated leading experts who have recognized expertise, training, and background in matters concerning pest control products, and who promote environmental realism and pesticide truths. 

 

Not surprisingly, enviro-fanatжcs have demonstrated that they are incapable of processing overwhelming scientific evidence proving that glyphosate is NO RISK.  Should we trust these fanatжcs, who conveniently ignore scientific evidence, and attempt to impose their politicized-doctrines and twisted life-style choices against our society ?!?! 

 

NORAHG was the brain-child 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 glyphosate-hating fanatжcs by exploring the whole truth from an independent perspective on The Pesticide Truths Web-Site      http://pesticidetruths.com/   If you wish to receive free reports on issues that concern you, please contact us at      force.of.de.nature@gmail.com   WILLIAM H GATHERCOLE AND NORAH G
