Deadline Tomorrow: If a product contains a cancer-causing chemical, we should be alerted about it so we know the dangers of using it. That’s why California is moving to declare the chemical glyphosate — the main chemical ingredient sold in Monsanto’s Roundup — as a carcinogen.
Glyphosate has been called a “probable human carcinogen” by the World Health Organization’s Agency for Research on Cancer. In light of this finding, and since hundreds of millions of pounds of this herbicide are used every year on crops across the country, it should absolutely be classified as cancer-causing, and Monsanto should be required to label it as such.
Sign below to submit a comment to the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment and ask them to label glyphosate as a carcinogen as soon as possible! Every voice counts!
