The International Agency for Research into Cancer has tarnished its reputation and is causing unnecessary angst and waste of resources by ruling that the world’s most popular herbicide, glyphosate, is "probably carcinogenic in humans". It defies reason that this small chemical consisting of phosphorus, nitrogen and carbon groups frequently found combined in living cells in similar forms should be carcinogenic. Glyphosate has neither cancer-active moieties nor structural mechanisms needed to form tumours. With no evidence of carcinogencity for humans, IARC should withdraw its biased ruling.
