HEAL signs joint NGO letter on glyphosate
In a joint letter to the European Commission, HEAL, Greenpeace, the Alliance for Cancer Prevention, Friends of the Earth Europe, and Pesticide Action Network Europe have asked for an informed debate on the use and glyphosate in Europe.
The letter addresses their concern regarding the scope of the European Commission’s request to the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) to investigate the carcinogenic potential of glyphosate.
Glyphosate is used in a large number of weedkillers. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified the substance as "probably carcinogenic to humans".
