There is No Evidence that Glyphosate Causes Cancer
Fourteen separate cancer studies in rats and mice conducted over the last several decades conclude that there is no evidence that glyphosate causes cancer. Data from these long-term studies were reviewed to determine whether there were any patterns to suggest humans exposed to glyphosate should harbor any concern about developing cancer. Other scientifically relevant information such as expert regulator evaluations, human dietary exposures and epidemiological studies were also discussed. Across more than 30 years of relevant information, the review continues to support opinions from the 1980s, that glyphosate does not cause cancer.

"The data in this paper clearly shows that there is no logical toxicology basis for saying glyphosate caused cancer in these rodent studies. This is consistent with the evidence in human epidemiology studies that also show no link between glyphosate use and cancer. This paper reassures the scientific community and the general public that expert regulator reviews of glyphosate safety around the world over the last several decades have correctly concluded that glyphosate does not pose a cancer risk to humans."
