As the debate and politics surrounding the use of the pesticide glyphosate heat up, particularly in the EU, Professor Carlo Leifert would like to draw your attention to a video narrated by Dr Michael Greger.

The video describes recent glyphosate/Round-Up facts, what happened to the permitted residue levels and why there is so much confusion about its toxicity.

Last year NEFG shared news items about the GM/glyphosate debate and the WHO report on the cancer risk of five common pesticides.

The report is summarized in The Lancet Oncology and drew attention for labeling glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans” based on sufficient evidence in animals and limited evidence in humans.
