Total corruption: Government regulators relied on industry-funded herbicide studies to declare glyphosate safe

When the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a designation of “safe and effective” with regards to Monsanto’s infamously controversial Roundup (glyphosate-based) herbicide, in direct contradiction to opposing findings by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) that identified glyphosate as a “probable human carcinogen,” the pro-chemical lobby quickly declared itself the victor in this heated and ongoing debate. But what the public was never told is that the EPA relied largely on industry-funded pseudoscience in giving its stamp of approval for glyphosate, while IARC carefully considered legitimate, peer-reviewed scientific studies before ultimately concluding and declaring that Roundup more than likely causes cancer.

As reported by Colin Todhunter of (and republished by, these disparate findings between the EPA and IARC have continued to fuel an ongoing battle by independent activists against Big Agrochemical, particularly in Europe where Dr. Charles M. Benbrook published a study baring the full truth about the corruption within the EPA that led the industry-compromised agency to make a patently false declaration about the alleged safety and effectiveness of Roundup and glyphosate.
