Tell the EPA: Don’t Re-Up Roundup!

Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, is probably causing cancer in humans. That’s according to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) panel of cancer experts, which published its latest review of the cancer risks of glyphosate in March 2015.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) should defer to WHO, but instead it is bowing to pressure from Monsanto. In May 2016, the EPA published its own finding, based largely on unpublished, industry-funded studies, that glyphosate is “Not Likely to be Carcinogenic to Humans.” This means that the EPA, which is conducting its once-every-15-year review of the herbicide, will likely choose to re-up Roundup.

TAKE ACTION! Tell the EPA: Don’t re-up Roundup! Please add your own comments, especially if you or your family members have been sickened from exposure to glyphosate.

Sometimes, dangerous pesticides get banned in the U.S., only to continue to be used in other countries with weaker safety standards. With Roundup, the U.S. could end up being the world’s toxic dump, if we don’t make our voices heard at the EPA.

France and Germany are getting rid of glyphosate formulations that are particularly dangerous after the European Food Safety Agency found that glyphosate formulations in combination with other chemicals have greater potential health risks than glyphosate on its own.

Sri Lanka is banning imports of glyphosate due to the herbicide’s role in the country’s increasing number of chronic kidney disease (CKDu) cases.

The Dutch parliament voted to oppose the European Union’s renewal of glyphosate’s permit and has banned its non-commercial use.

In Brazil, the world’s largest user of pesticides, the Federal Public Prosecutor has asked for a ban on glyphosate.
