Approximately 50 lawsuits have been filed by cancer victims and lawyers accusing the company of purposefully downplaying the health risks associated with glyphosate — a major chemical component of Roundup that was linked in 2015 as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization’s International Association for Research on Cancer (IARC). The original lawsuits accuse Monsanto of “ghostwriting” allegedly independent research that touted the safety of glyphosate.
A second report published by two WHO subcommittees in 2016 seemingly contradicts the original IARC assessment, stating that “there is some evidence of a positive association between glyphosate exposure and risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma from the case-control studies and the overall meta-analysis. … [But] the only large cohort study of high quality found no evidence of an association at any exposure level.”
