Glyphosate probably doesn’t cause cancer

California verdicts notwithstanding, there’s zero evidence that glyphosate causes cancer or otherwise endangers the public. But bans on all glyphosate use are proliferating locally, and a national ban seems possible if not probable. The safety of herbicides needs to be determined by scientists, not chemophobic California jurors or vulturine attorneys. The health of our native ecosystems depends on it.
This post was deleted for the following reason: Hey, if we're going to have a thread about glyphosate, maybe let's pick a different more measured source. Slate very often has these kind of provocatively-framed articles that are meant to get passed around for their "conventional wisdom is wrong!!!" premises, which often make for less-then-great threads because everyone is drawn to react to the framing. For that reason, often Slate articles aren't the best starting points for Mefi threads, even though the topics are often interesting. -- LobsterMitten
