Is glyphosate safe?
In evaluations spanning four decades, the overwhelming conclusion of experts worldwide, including the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Joint FAO/WHO Meeting on Pesticide Residues (JMPR), has been that glyphosate can be used safely. In fact, glyphosate safety is supported by one of the most extensive worldwide human health, crop residue and environmental databases ever compiled on a pesticide product. Like all pesticides, regulatory authorities around the world routinely review the latest safety data on glyphosate.
