Let’s talk about Roundup™ herbicides.
"There's No Risk To Public Health From The Application Of Glyphosate"
— Alexandra Dunn
Assistant Administrator for the
EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety
and Pollution Prevention
Recently, there has been increased discussion about glyphosate, the main active ingredient in most Roundup® brand herbicides and some other weed-control products. As a company, we are deeply committed to the safe use of our products, to the communities where they are used and to our planet.
Glyphosate-based herbicides, which include most Roundup® products, are among the most rigorously studied products of their kind. Independent regulatory agencies continue to assess glyphosate-based products and conclude they can be used safely and that glyphosate is not carcinogenic. On Tuesday, April 30, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) re-stated its classification of glyphosate as “not likely to be carcinogenic to humans,” the agency’s most favorable classification. The EPA conclusion is consistent with the determinations of leading global health regulators, including Health Canada, the European Chemicals Agency, the European Food Safety Authority, the Food Safety Commission of Japan and other major regulatory bodies, that glyphosate is not carcinogenic.
