CALIFORNIA — A U.S. judge said that California will not put cancer-warning labels on products with glyphosate.
When the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a branch of the World Health Organization, added glyphosate to the ‘probably carcinogenic’ group in 2015, California decided to label all products with glyphosate as potentially cancer causing. The IARC decision was denounced by many industry experts for its lack of science.
U.S. District Judge William Shubb agreed. He ruled that “given the heavy weight of evidence that glyphosate is not in fact known to cause cancer, the required warning is factually inaccurate and controversial.”
