One of the main advantages of eating organic is the avoidance of potential carcinogenic chemicals. One of the most widely used herbicides is Monsanto’s glyphosate, also known as Roundup. Now the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), part of the WHO, has reclassified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans”. It is widely used by councils spraying in public places, and by non-organic farmers. It’s about time we started counting chemicals, not just calories. Let’s keep our world, and our food, chemical free. To find out more on glyphosate go to http://www.i-sis.org.uk/SS-glyphosate.php.
