Does glyphosate cause cancer?
Important gap in German risk assessment

Research carried out by the Pesticide Action Network (PAN Germany) has identified an important gap in the risk assessment of glyphosate carried out by the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR). There are already several scientific publications showing that glyphosate can cause oxidative stress to cells, which is a possible cause of cancer. Nevertheless, the BfR did not take this into account in their risk assessment. This omission could be one of the main reasons why the BfR - contrary to the findings of an International Agency of the World Health Organization (WHO) - has concluded that glyphosate is not carcinogenic.

Stop Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs)

Call to ban HHPs - Take action Decades’ of experience has shown that, despite numerous “safe use” programmes, the safe use of highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs) is not possible. People, farm animals, wildlife and the environment continue to suffer considerable harm from HHPs. After years of failure which have seen millions of deaths from pesticides worldwide, new policies are needed to stop pesticide poisonings and illness. A phaseout and ban of HHPs, along with new policies to support more sustainable alternatives, can make a change towards a healthy and sustainable world for all.
