So Roundup ‘probably’ causes cancer. This means what, exactly?

You’ve already heard by now that the World Health Organization just classified glyphosate  –  the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup – as a probable carcinogen. Another probable carcinogen, acrylamide, is formed by cooking at high temperatures: It shows up, for instance, in coffee beans, potato chips, and french fries. The FDA just approved a GMO potato that produces less than half the acrylamide. If we want to reduce glyphosate use, shouldn’t we also embrace this potato? And conversely, if we aren’t worried about glyphosate, is there really any need for the new potatoes? Report
