What Could Go Wrong?

Monsanto is working frantically with its cronies at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to get another 15-year approval for its Roundup weedkiller—before EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt gets fired or Trump is impeached

Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, is the most-used agricultural chemical ever. Mounting scientific evidence of its human health impacts indicates that it may also be the most devastating.

The EPA has been conducting its required 15-year re-registration review of glyphosate since 2009. The agency was supposed to reapprove or ban the chemical by the end of 2015. We assumed that glyphosate would get the stamp of approval for another 15 years while President Obama was still in office.  

Then in March 2015, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) panel of cancer experts, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), did its own review of the latest science on glyphosate. The IARC panel of 17 scientists unanimously agreed to reclassify the chemical as a probable human carcinogen. 

The IARC cancer finding forced the EPA to take its glyphosate review more seriously. That slowed down the process.

Now, the decision is in the hands of Trump's EPA. What could go wrong?
