Statement from Glyphosate Renewal Group:

First of all, regarding human health: Leading health regulators around the world have repeatedly concluded that glyphosate-based products can be used safely as directed and that glyphosate is not carcinogenic. Most recently, in January 2020, the U.S. EPA published its Interim Registration Review Decision on glyphosate and stated "EPA has thoroughly evaluated potential human health risk associated with exposure to glyphosate and determined that there are no risks to human health from the current registered uses of glyphosate and that glyphosate is not likely to be carcinogenic to humans."

In addition to the U.S. EPA, the conclusions of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), and the leading health authorities in Germany, Australia, Korea, Canada, New Zealand, Japan, and elsewhere around the world support the safety of glyphosate-based products when used as directed and that glyphosate is not carcinogenic.

As part of the registration process, regulatory authorities also evaluate the potential for effects on non-target plants. They only approve products that pose no unreasonable risk to the environment. In addition, robust stewardship programs are in place to understand and minimize any potential negative impact on the environment. Farmers participate in training and certification programs to help ensure they are up-to-date on best practices for using glyphosate-based crop protection products effectively and sustainably.
