Following a review Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency has reaffirmed the safety of glyphosate. The review was in response to eight notices of objection related to the agency’s final re-evaluation decision in 2017.
Health Canada said it “left no stone unturned” in conducting the review, concluding that the concerns raised by the objectors could not be scientifically supported when considering the entire body of relevant data. The agency affirmed that glyphosate does not cause any harmful effects, including cancer. It also said there were no environmental concerns raised by the review.
