Inconclusive Scientific Evidence Could Clear Roundup Herbicide From Cancer Accusations

One scientist asks "If Roundup herbicide causes deadly lymphoma where are all the bodies?"

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 - It is tempting to condemn Monsanto given their history of producing cancer-causing chemicals like Agent Orange, and DDT, and ban the use of Roundup herbicide but doing so may create a greater problem than the weedkiller presents. Cities and municipalities in environmentally-conscious states such as California and Florida have banned the use of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup weedkiller and political officials in other states are banning Roundup on areas they landscape where children frequent and play. European countries such as France and more recently Germany have declared that they will enforce a phased-in ban on glyphosate starting in 2022 when glyphosate's European license expired. These bans are in response to consumers outcry and signed petitions where millions of Europeans demanded that the herbicide be taken off of the market. On the surface, it seems logical to ban the use of Roundup, however, doing so would have ripple effects in other elements of our lives. And there is no guarantee that Roundup's replacement would be any safer. Families and individuals suffering from side effects and cancer due to the use of Monsanto weedkiller and are filing Roundup cancer lawsuits against Monsanto/Bayer represented by top national attorneys are offering a free consultation and no obligation to file a claim.

For one, the world's farmers swear by using Roundup weedkiller on their millions of acres of crops and they say that they have used the chemical for decades and have never gotten sick. Farmers have sprayed thousands of gallons of Roundup herbicide on their crops, some for over 3 decades and would regularly come home drenched in the chemical. John Barton, a third-generation cotton farmer, when asked about glyphosate, told The Guardian, "My family were farming 1,000 acres of cotton, so we'd be out in the fields spraying it, and we'd get our pants wet, our shoes wet, our socks wet, and if the wind changed it would blow in our face. We did that spring, summer and fall for most of my life. There was no regulation at the time that we were spraying Roundup; no one was offered any protection. But I didn't think anything of it, as they kept telling us how safe it was." Indeed, there has been much confusion generated by jury verdicts that have awarded tens of millions of dollars to cancer victims that have used glyphosate in industrial quantities, like farmers do.

Farmers also say that the their costs of mandatory weed control would skyrocket without glyphosate and they would go out of business within a year. If many farmers go out of business it would cause food prices to increase and shock the global economy. And that is the good news. The bad news is that a lack of food production will inevitably lead to mass starvation, epidemic diseases and global human depopulation. Agricultural Professional Farmer's Journal lists several adverse economic consequences that would hit the food production industry if glyphosate is banned. First is that global farmer's income would be reduced by about $7 billion per year as a result of the added costs of weed control. Corn, soybean and Canola production would decrease by 23 billion tons. Mechanical weed control would increase carbon emissions that would be the equivalent of adding 12 million automobiles to the road per year.
