Podcast: Glyphosate, cancer and corporate conspiracies in the Roundup controversy

Bayer faces thousands of lawsuits alleging that glyphosate, Roundup’s active ingredient, is a carcinogen responsible for causing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL), a rare cancer whose causes remain elusive.

Despite our limited understanding of NHL, misleading news stories and agenda-driven activist groups have left consumers with the impression that glyphosate’s a relatively safe yet effective herbicide – is slowly poisoning our food supply, while Bayer attempts to cover up the evidence.

In such a politically charged environment, how are consumers supposed to separate genuine health risks from overheated health scares?

On this episode of the EcoModernist podcast, hosts Gabe Ignetti and GLP executive director Jon Entine sit down with legal scholar Drew Kershen and cancer epidemiologist Geoffrey Kabat to provide a rundown of food safety and pesticide exposure, with an emphasis on the current glyphosate controversy.
