Since the 1970s, farmers and landscapers alike have been using Roundup, a product made by agricultural and chemical giant Monsanto. Today, Roundup is one of the most commonly used weed killers in the world. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) found Roundup’s main ingredient, glyphosate, to be a probable carcinogenic. The IARC defines a probable carcinogenic as a substance that possesses strong, but inconclusive evidence of causing cancer in humans.

Individuals who live in areas where Roundup is used frequently are also at risk of developing cancer as a result of prolonged exposure.
Monsanto denies the IARC allegations and points to the Environmental Protection Agency, which has had internal disagreement over the safety of glyphosate, and has yet to agree with IARC’s findings that glyphosate is a probable carcinogen. However, recently revealed correspondence between former EPA Deputy Director Jess Rowland and Monsanto call into question the EPA’s assessment.
According to court documents, Mr. Rowland, who was in charge of evaluating the cancer risk of Roundup, allegedly bragged to a company executive that he deserved a medal if he could kill another agency’s investigation into glyphosate. In 2015 the EPA’s Office of Research and Development raised concerns about the robustness of an assessment carried out by the agency’s Office of Pesticide Programs, where Mr. Rowland was a senior official at the time, and recommended in December 2015 that it take steps to “strengthen” its “human health assessment.”
