France Says “Glyphosate Could Be Carcinogenic to Humans”

First the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) deemed glyphosate, the main component in herbicides such as Round Up, a ‘probable carcinogen.’ Then, California’s EPA announced that glyphosate-products would adopt a cancer label. Now, France’s Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) suggests that glyphosate is likely a category 2 carcinogen, meaning it is cancerous to human beings.

ANSES believes the classification of glyphosate should be rapidly reviewed by the European Chemicals Agency.

Specifically in question within Round Up’s formulation is a co-formulant used in many glyphosate preparations called tallowamine.

ANSES says it will conduct an immediate reassessment of the marketing authorizations for preparations combining glyphosate and tallowamine.

ANSES received a formal request to investigate the hazards posed by glyphosate to human health after the IARC released its study.

The Agency states that with current evidence, it is not possible to propose a classification in Category 1A or 1B (respectively, known or presumed to be carcinogenic to humans, CLP Regulation), but that glyphosate could be classified in Category 2 (substances suspected of being carcinogenic to humans, CLP). It is upon this premise that ANSES feels that the classification of glyphosate deserves expeditious review by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
