I wrote about the insidious and widespread use of glyphosate in my blog titled What Pet Parents Really Need to Know About Glyphosate. In this article, I wanted to focus on the health hazards related to glyphosate and what that could mean for you and your animals.
The World Health Organization (WHO) classified glyphosate as a “probable carcinogen” in 2015. The presence of glyphosate was seen as a possible link to conditions including, but, not limited to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, pancreatic islet-cell adenoma, renal cell carcinoma, and skin cancer. The cumulative exposure to glyphosate over the course of our lifetimes from our environment, food and water reveals just the tip of the proverbial “iceberg” where cancer is concerned.
