We’ve Been, “Rounded-Up”

UW study: Exposure to chemical in Roundup increases risk for cancer,
University of Washington. February 13, 2019.

MAIN POINTS

“Exposure to glyphosate--the world's most widely used, broad-spectrum herbicide and the primary ingredient in the weedkiller Roundup--increases the risk of some cancers by more than 40 percent...”

“...a comprehensive review of existing literature--and focused on the most highly exposed groups in each study. They found that the link between glyphosate and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma is stronger than previously reported.”

“...determined that exposure to glyphosate may increase the risk of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma by as much as 41 percent. The authors focused their review on epidemiological research in humans but also considered the evidence from laboratory animals.”

 

“Usage in the agricultural industry has soared, particularly since the mid-2000s when the practice of "green burndown" was introduced, in which glyphosate-based herbicides are applied to crops shortly before harvest. As a consequence, crops are now likely to have higher residues of glyphosate.”

“Green Burndown”
Concentrated in Consumer Products
“Researchers say more studies are needed to account for the effects of increased exposures from green burndown, which may not be fully captured in the existing studies reviewed in this new publication.”

 

This makes sense:
