Glyphosate – Need for a robust and credible scientific assessment of carcinogenicity

WECF signs a letter concerning glyphosate exposion to EU health commisioner Vytenis Andriukaitis

11.11.2015 |

In March the WHO said glyphosate is probably carcinogenic. Since then the EU commission has shut its ears and ignored the risks they are supposed to defend us from.

WECF among other NGO's signed a letter and insist that the EU health commissioner acts on this information. The demand is thus that Vytenis Andriukaitis acts to stop glyphosate now.
