Ban Glyphosate Products in Canada sign now

THE IARC branch of the World Health Organization has deemed Glyphosate a 'probably carcinogen'.

Glyphosate is the world’s most widely produced herbicide, by volume. It is used extensively silvaculture practices in the forestry industry, agriculture and is also found in garden products.

Glyphosate has been linked to tumours in mice and rats — and there is also what the IARC classifies as ‘mechanistic evidence’, such as DNA damage to human cells from exposure to glyphosate.

Kathryn Guyton, a senior toxicologist in the monographs programme at the IARC and one of the authors of the study, says, “In the case of glyphosate, because the evidence in experimental animals was sufficient and the evidence in humans was limited, that would put the agent into group 2A.”

While it is not part of the IARC’s process to quantify any increased risk of cancer due to a chemical, or to recommend a safe exposure level, its studies are influential. Regulatory agencies decide what to do with the agency’s finding.

Glyphosate is associated with:

Spontaneous abortions

Birth defects

Skin disease

Respiratory illness

Neurological disease


We call upon Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to ban the use of products that contain glyposate.
