An U.S. EPA official said [September 10th] the agency’s work shows that glyphosate — the herbicide found in Monsanto’s Roundup — is not dangerous to humans despite continued public debate about its safety.
 
“ [T]he agency doesn’t feel that there’s any meaningful risk to human health based on exposure to glyphosate,” Michael Goodis, director of registration division in EPA’s Office of Pesticides, said at a conference hosted by the National Association of Departments of Agriculture. “This is consistent with determinations from other countries and regulatory authorities.”
[The EPA’s] 2017 draft risk assessment found that glyphosate is not likely to be carcinogenic. The agency intends to release an interim registration decision for glyphosate in 2019 after reviewing “a considerable number of comments” on that initial assertion, Goodis said.
